As the Middle East is rocked by turmoil and upheaval, Nabil Echchaibi returns to Our Times to relate what is being said by Al Jazeera, who is in the streets of Cairo, and who is telling the story in Arabic.  Echchaibi puts the Muslim Brotherhood in a light unfamiliar to western viewers as the champion of the revolution and is a professor of mass communications at the University of Colorado at Boulder, a Moroccan who keeps close tabs and recounts how they too have been harassed, kidnapped and beaten by Mubarak's supporters.  Altogether, this is an exciting new view of what is happening in Egypt during these tense days of decision.
