The government blocked mobile phone lines, facebook and twitter yesterday to stop people spreading messages for gatherings. But the people managed to spread fire by word of mouth. Today their internet connection is cut down. MasyaAllah.
Ya Allah, bless the people of Egypt. Give them a king that fears You. Give them Your Strength to free themselves and their neighbor Palestine. And protect our family, brothers and sisters. Indeed You are our Mighty Protector. Ameen.
