Mr. Bush’s Middle East democracy plan has opened the doors to more freedom and has made people more outspoken, giving them a sense of security to use this most dangerous newly found weapon on the streets of Egypt and the Arab world and now it has spread around causing major changes in the political beliefs of these people and in so doing has made an impact with a potential to change their lives.

"Kefaya," or "enough," has become the most used word in Egypt and the rest of the Arab world. It has appeared on thousands of posters lifted by demonstrators in Cairo demanding that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak not run for a fifth term.

Egypt was censured for having "restricted many basic rights," including continuing to "mistreat and torture prisoners" and arbitrary arrest and detention.

"Saudi Arabia received kudos for "positive developments," including voter registration for municipal election and the government-sponsored conference on women's rights. "The record of human rights abuses and violations for Saudi Arabia, however, still far exceeds the advances," the report stated. In addition to reports of torture, arbitrary arrest and closed trials, "religious police continued to intimidate abuse and detain citizens and foreigners." Mar. 1, 2005 23:01 The Jerusalem post said

Egypt was criticized for not giving its citizens "the meaningful ability to change their government."

Egypt also has been censured for allowing its armed forces to mistreat and torture prisoners and for conducting arbitrary and mass arrests. Summing up the political mood of the country, Egypt’s National Campaign for Change has adopted the word ‘kefaya’ as its name; Kefaya has been one of the groups pushing for more openness in the country’s presidential elections.”

US Pressure is starting to be felt by Egypt and other countries in the region. President George W. Bush in his State of the Union speech had singled out "the great and proud nation of Egypt" in his State of the Union address, which, the president said, "showed the way toward peace in the Middle East." Bush then added that Egypt "can now show the way toward democracy in the Middle East."

Mubarak’s declaration for political change comes as a shock as Egypt faces growing problems at home and mounting pressures from the Bush administration to introduce more democratization.
