It’s officially frightening now

Mubarak isn’t stepping down. Whether that’s the right or wrong move, I honestly don’t know. But the crowd in Tahrir Square is already exhibiting the characteristics of an angry mob. They’ve gone from full of hope to anger in mere minutes. (This is an almost unimaginably huge mob.)

UPDATE: Richard Engle just reported that protestors have begun a march to the Presidential Palace. He does add, however, that they may be directing their main efforts and energy toward an even larger march tomorrow.

That’s all she said

From Al Jazeera, a brief short paragraph. Tantalizing but no more info there at present. Huh?

According to sources in the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv, Israel is making preparations to welcome Hosni Mubarak into exile after Saudi Arabia rejected overtures.

 UPDATE: Oddly, that story is still on Al Jazeera’s front page at 7pm on Monday, but there are no more details than yesterday. Just the single sentence.
