“What happened in the Square was a miracle by all measures”

    Our friends at Narco News TV have just produced another episode of their excellent series of interviews with the people who made the revolution in Egypt happen. (Don’t miss the last one, with blogger and viral video producer Aalam Wassef.) This time the star is Mohammad Abbas, who was a young member of the Muslim Brotherhood when the uprising broke out in January. He narrates its beginnings, and explains its roots in decades of organizing and coalition building. Even so, what happened on January 25th seemed to him nothing short of a miracle.
