Despite toppling the dictator Hosni Mubarak in February 2011, Egypt remained under military rule and brutal repression. The revolution continues; activists are still protesting and still using Twitter to get the word out. Tweets from Tahrir told the story of the 18-day uprising that removed Mubarak; this page brings live coverage of the struggle.

Bottom line: Muslims in America really need to pick their battles.

Hollywood orientalism is to blame more than any latent Islamophobia in the NFL for the penalty on Husain Abdullah #pt

NFL refs should be given benefit of the doubt if for no other reason than they've probably never seen an accurate depiction of Muslim prayer

Honestly, do you really think the refs knew that Husain Abdullah was giving praise, let alone that he was Muslim? Righteous indignation FTW

Was penalizing Husain Abdullah a mistake? Sure--and the NFL said as much. The memes and Tebow comparisons are cute, but disingenuous.

Islamophobia is real, but Muslims in America are real quick w/ the victim mentality. The flag on Abdullah was clearly not due to his faith.

Really weird being so disengaged from Twitter for so long. Strange anxiety like I have to re-acclimate or something.

First day I'm able to engage w/ humanity in earnest in at least three months. Why the hiatus? The evil institution that is qualifying exams.

@fhussains Still not totally convinced tho that it wasn't a cover for something...but I'll take it.
