M' sian observations on development in Egypt

Like many other people all over the world , Malaysians are also closely observing and discussing the dramatic changes in and future of Egypt which is now under the rule of the republic's supreme military council. There was also a public demonstration on 4 Feb (Fri) in Kuala Lumpur to give support to the protestors in Egypt who urged Mubarak to quit. Before the outbreak of the political uprising and also social upheaval, there were reportedly more than 10,000 Malaysian nationals in Egypt, including a large number of students of different fields of knowledge. Meanwhile, the latest hotspot in the very 'dynamic' Middle East is the Shiite-majority but Sunni-ruled Kingdom of Bahrain that is situated in between, the Shiite republic of Iran and, the Sunni monarchy of Saudi Arabia, whose geostrategic relationship is already pretty well -known.
