A step on the way to democracy! (UPDATE)

Sounds like the Egyptian government started learning from the Chinese, Saudi and Pakistani governments as it started blocking the opposition sites giving the Egyptian internet users no choice but to read what the government wants them to read.

I have received two emails telling about three main opposing websites being blocked by the government. The sites are:

Save Egypt Front
Masreyat
Egyptian Talks

Users of the main ISPs in Egypt cannot have any access to these sites anymore. Users of LinkDotNet, TE Data and Raya ADSL can no longer have any access to the sites that give just a different point of view that the Egyptian government does not like.

Ironically, Egypt's Prime Minister Ahmed Nazif is a computer expert and has a PhD in AI. They call his government "The Electronic Government". Well, The Electronic Government started blocking opposition sites... I wonder what more is to come!

Whispers to Condoleezza Rice: Egypt is really going on the right way of democratic reform, right?

(UPDATE):
Thanks to Moustafa Hussein, you can now have access to the blocked sites using a site that breaks their proxies. The site is Hide my Ass... Thanks alot, Moustafa.

confirmed. You can access them with http://www.hidemyass.com

Egyptian talks is a very respectable forum BTW. Full of moderate opposition too.

The ikhwan website remains accessible!!!
