you know what form and this is obviously to deal with the government strong that president mubarak cannot step down despite the demand from protesters on the streets that he step down immediately and till the constitution is dealt with the committee has been given one month to complete its work it is significant that the vice president almost sentiment met with opposition groups and that among those opposition groups was the muslim brotherhood the muslim brotherhood is banned here in just a few days ago they were saying that there was no way they would meet with the government until mubarak step down now the brotherhood is it pains to say that its position has not changed that it has called these talks are not negotiations and that's when he said that it went to go and meet with cement to see what was the position of the government how much it was prepared to use to meet them halfway and to put the demands of the people across as long as we can gauge the the media sensation but it's not so much that people are fearing move violence it's really the uncertainty of what comes next today sunday we've met we've witnessed in various places is being held by the coptic christians as well as muslims they've
11:01 am
come together and they've been praying for the people who died today has been called the day of matches the message that they've been putting out is that this is a people's revolution this is a democratic revolution for the first time we've noticed a real desire for people to get back to work and some kind of humanity the banks were open for us to free up for three hours there have been some businesses would open their doors the figures being bandied about is that this crisis has cost this country three hundred ten million dollars a day totaling three point one billion dollars so there is a very real desire from most people in the country that while they sympathize and empathize with the protesters for some kind of normality to return to the streets of egypt just yesterday the u.s. secretary of state hillary clinton speaking in munich saying that the washington the american administration would support a government that is headed by almost one of many he is the vice president that is currently meeting with these opposition groups now some of them is widely regarded here as mubarak's right hand man people prefer him possibly to. right but they
11:02 am
certainly don't believe that a government headed by him will be anything different to what they've seen at the moment his nickname is mr torture because of the position he held for so many years in the intelligence service here he was the chief of egyptian intelligence so when those kind of statements come out of the american administration they just reinforce the feeling on the streets here that the united states and european powers and the rest of the world really needs to stay out of egypt and if it is my colleague in england took a look at that phenomenon the problem president obama started it is my belief that an orderly transition must be meaningful. it must be peaceful and it must begin now and then faithfully one after the other one the other governments followed suit . to show these democratic change has to start now and. it needs to happen now for greater freedom and democracy in egypt and it seems the theme was contagious as the calling for a new egypt spreads uncontrolled across the western mass media there were two
11:03 am
hundred and fifty thousand people in the streets of cairo protesting for democracy this is how democracy happens but what right do u.s. and european leaders have to get involved in what's essentially domestic unrest about dissatisfaction with a ruler who cares what they want in egypt certainly not these demonstrators at the egyptian embassy in london they supported the egyptian regime for such a long time and in fact they are they give to regime and now they are talking about democracy and respect the for the rights of this and so obama's speech i want this but most of it could be sitting on the fence so much and most of that i mean is not the same going on but out there just saying that's the appearance for a transition where is this peaceful transition it's a complete turnaround for the western world which is always supported hosni mubarak is a fool supposed to policy in the region the u.s.
11:04 am
gave him one and a half billion dollars a year for his armed forces alone and it was western support that kept mubarak in power betraying an inherent misunderstanding of the way society operates according to chatham house. is by making. to the west so they have to convince the world that. if they leave it'll be the muslim brotherhood and you'll have to publish. in egypt. it's the worst case scenario so the. minute you can see beyond never really fall in all of which suggests that western countries should stand back and let the egyptian people exercise that the president of the united states would call on us to move immediately and. to make changes as if we are the fifty fifth state of the united states we are not trying to play
11:05 am
a role in egypt's you chase the dangerous game the western leaders hosni mubarak enjoyed strong support from america and co for many years but now at the first sign of trouble this uproot is conspicuous in its absence this sends a message to friends and foes alike in the region when the going gets tough don't count on us a message that's likely to further destabilize an already deeply unstable possibly was no rabbits are to be looked at meantime professor sayad mohammad marandi from the university of tehran says the real goal of the u.s. is to prevent the arab and muslim world from getting stronger to protect its closest ally in the region israel. they're not on the side of the people in the people recognize that they're playing a double game they're on the one hand very much on the side of the establishment on the side of. a mouse with a man but on the other hand they tell the egypt and people that they they hear
11:06 am
their voices and they wish to pray for their freedom but we all know that the ruling establishment cannot last without american support and the chips in people know that these countries do not want them to be free not only because do they want the americans and europeans want to remain in power and have their head germany in these countries but they also know that an independent egypt an independent jordan and an independent arabia meaning sodium rabia is something that would be detrimental to the israeli regime so the united states and the europeans will wish very much to prevent the people of the region from empowerment and that's mohammad marandi the professor from the university of tehran speaking there where you are with the weekly here on r.t. and still to come america's media is turning up the heat on terror on. tuesday the industry your leader in school he's going to do you have something to give you
