There can be no drought in Egypt tonight, as the country is awash in tears of joy that Mubarak has resigned. I hope and pray that the Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank will emulate the passive resistance and determination of Egyptian protesters. Peaceful protest, self-directed, is the best reply to the shibboleth of the "peace process" orchestrated by the Israelis and the Americans. Power to the Palestinian people!
