Egypt’s vice president says the government will not tolerate prolonged anti-government protests in Cairo’s main square, where hundreds of thousands of people gathered Tuesday in the latest effort to force the ouster of long-serving President Hosni Mubarak.

Egypt’s state-run MENA news agency quotes Vice President Omar Suleiman as saying that a crisis triggered by 16 days of anti-Mubarak protests in Tahrir Square must end “as soon as possible.” Suleiman was speaking late Tuesday to a group of Egyptian newspaper editors.

MENA says Suleiman told the editors that the presence of anti-Mubarak activists and satellite television stations in the square was making Egyptian citizens “hesitant to go to work” and disrupting daily life. He accused the satellite television stations of “insulting” Egypt, without naming them.

But, Suleiman also is quoted as saying the government does not want to deal with Egyptian society using “police tools” and prefers to use dialogue to try to address the protesters’ demands.

Hundreds of thousands of people rallied in Tahrir Square Tuesday in one of the biggest protests of a two-week-old uprising seeking an immediate end to Mr. Mubarak’s nearly 30 years in power. Thousands remained in the square Wednesday, after spending another night in makeshift shelters.

Other activists protested for a second day outside Egypt’s parliament, several blocks from the square. Some had slept on the ground overnight, hoping to block access to the building. They demanded the resignation of lawmakers elected late last year in a vote they say was rigged in favor of the ruling party.

Mr. Mubarak has responded to the protests by declaring he will not to run for a sixth term in a September election and offering other political concessions, but the protesters have rejected those pledges as superficial.

Many of those in the square Tuesday joined the protests for the first time. Some said they were inspired by the story of a 30-year old Egyptian executive at Internet giant Google, whom authorities detained in secret for 12 days after he helped to ignite the uprising with a Facebook page.

Wael Ghonim received a thunderous welcome from the crowd as he appeared in the square a day after being released from custody. In a brief address, he said, “We will not abandon our demand – the departure of the regime.” MENA says Suleiman rejected that call, insisting there will be “no ending of the regime.”

Suleiman also is quoted as warning against plans by some protesters for a campaign of civil disobedience, saying such a development would be “very dangerous” to society.

Thousands of Egyptian university professors and lawyers also made their first appearance at the Cairo protest site Tuesday, while anti-Mubarak activists held substantial protests in other cities such as Alexandria.

Earlier Tuesday, Vice President Suleiman said Mr. Mubarak issued decrees establishing separate committees to draft constitutional reforms and monitor their implementation. The reforms are aimed at relaxing eligibility rules for the presidency and imposing term limits – key demands of Egypt’s opposition.

Suleiman said Mr. Mubarak also formed a third committee to investigate deadly fighting last week between his supporters and anti-government activists in Tahrir Square.

The Egyptian vice president held unprecedented talks with several opposition groups on Sunday, but representatives of the Cairo street protesters did not participate.

The United Nations says protest-related violence in Egypt has killed more than 300 people since January 25.

The Latest Planned Parenthood Video, Disputed – The Atlantic

On February 9, 2011, in Article, Latest News, Videos, by ayesha

The anti-abortion group Live Action, which has been releasing James O’Keefe-style undercover videos of Planned Parenthood offices over the past week (see here and here ), posted its third video today, and Planned Parenthood is disputing its legitimacy. Like the first two videos, shot at Planned Parenthood offices in New Jersey and Virginia, this one appears to show a worker counseling a pimp and prostitute (who are not actually a pimp and prostitute) on how to obtain sexual-health services for underage prostitutes who do not speak English and are not citizens. (In other words, likely victims of sex trafficking.) Live Action is a group run by Lila Rose , a student activist at UCLA who has been shooting such videos of Planned Parenthood for some time, and who has worked with O’Keefe and hatched the idea to infiltrate clinics with him in 2006.

The anti-abortion group Live Action, which has been releasing James O’Keefe-style undercover videos of Planned Parenthood offices over the past week (see here and here), posted its third video today, and Planned Parenthood is disputing its legitimacy.

Like the first two videos, shot at Planned Parenthood offices in New Jersey and Virginia, this one appears to show a worker counseling a pimp and prostitute (who are not actually a pimp and prostitute) on how to obtain sexual-health services for underage prostitutes who do not speak English and are not citizens. (In other words, likely victims of sex trafficking.)

Live Action is a group run by Lila Rose, a student activist at UCLA who has been shooting such videos of Planned Parenthood for some time, and who has worked with O’Keefe and hatched the idea to infiltrate clinics with him in 2006. The LA Times profiled her in 2009.

The latest video is perhaps less explosive than the New Jersey video, because it does not include
any advice for the young prostitutes to lie about their ages or the ages
of their sexual partners for the purpose of covering up statutory rape.

“So, we’re involved in sex work,” the fake pimp tells a Planned Parenthood desk-worker named Kristal. “We have some other girls that we manage and work with that they’re gonna need testing as well. So do you guys see them or not?”

Kristal nods.

“‘Cause they’re fourteen and fifteen,” the fake prostitute goes on to tell her.

Kristal tells them that Planned Parenthood will see them, and that “everything is totally confidential.”

“We don’t want them, you know, saying the wrong thing, you know, and gettin’ refused or turned away,” the pimp says at one point.

Kristal tells them the fake pimp and prostitute they can write letters claiming legal guardianship of the girls, as part of a paperwork process to obtain taxpayer-funded insurance. “Like, my name is so and so and I support–whatever, whatever, and just put, like contact information. They don’t even call you.”

The pimp again explains, to a nurse practitioner, that he manages prostitutes as young as thirteen. He asks her how they would obtain services.

“They just show up and set up an appointment,” the practitioner says.

Planned Parenthood, which has already notified the FBI of these videos, calls several facts into question.

For one, it says that the videos were doctored, and that multiple sources of audio may have been included in the finished products.

From Planned Parenthood’s statement responding to the videos today:

In an interview with the FBI, the two health center workers featured in the video said that they did not hear the words “sex work” or “sex worker,” uttered by the actors on camera who were hired by Live Action to play the role of a “pimp” on the videotape in an effort to undermine the credibility of Planned Parenthood staff in Live Action’s coordinated lobbying effort to support legislation that would bar Planned Parenthood from receiving federal funds.

In addition, it is clear from the edited tape that there are two or more video sources, as well as an additional audio source, increasing the opportunity for manipulation and selective editing.

Live Action, meanwhile, has posted what it claims to be the unedited version of the Bronx video. In it, the words “sex work” are clearly audible. (Having edited video myself, I can tell you that it’s not always easy to discern whether audio has been spliced in from extraneous sources, so it’s probably best not to speculate on that part of Planned Parenthood’s statement.)

Rose had this to say about Planned Parenthood’s claims:

This is now Planned Parenthood’s fifth different response to the incriminating footage.  Clearly they cannot keep their story straight.  We have made full, unedited footage available from each clinic we’ve highlighted, and it is clear that Planned Parenthood staff are more than willing to aid and abet a self-identified sex trafficker with the exploitation of underage girls.  Planned Parenthood’s latest version of events is the most absurd yet. After announcing they will retrain their entire staff, Planned Parenthood then claims the footage is somehow doctored. They can’t have it both ways, and their five different versions of events betray they know that they’re guilty.

Find below the video, followed by the subsequent version offered by Live Action as unedited footage:

Kourtney Kardashian Is Teaching Mason To Be Bilingual

Kourtney Kardashian says she’s been teaching her 13-month-old son Mason Spanish.

While at an event in Kitson in L.A. she said, “We like to speak Spanish to him. My mom’s housekeeper speaks it to him, too. He says ‘hug’ now. He says it in Spanish and English – abrazo!”

However, you won’t be able to see Mason practicing his bilingual skills on television. The 31-year-old reality star and her boyfriend Scott Disick have decided not to include their son in the current season of Kourtney And Kim Take New York.
