Odai Sirri, the director of business development at Nanaimo's Grand Hotel and who worked as a journalist in Cairo in 2002-03, said open debate and political discussions in Egypt have been suppressed under the Mubarak government for decades, and he's "not surprised" that the people want more democracy.
"I always thought that it was just a matter of time before this happened," said Sirri, who wrote for the Cairo Times magazine.
Sirri said the situation in Egypt is at a "point of no return" and a change of leadership is inevitable.
"Democracy in Egypt is happening from within, and it will be up to its 80 million citizens to determine what it will look like," he said.

ARAB SCRIBE ... Former Nanaimo journalist Odai Sirri has finally achieved his dream - he's off to Iraq to report on the ongoing political developments there.Odai is a reporter for Al-Jazeera, the Arab TV network in the Middle East, and had been hoping for assignment in the country of his parents' birth.

Odai Sirri, a journalist from Vancouver who works for Al-Jazeera, says the network's reporting on the war in Afghanistan as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict has been more explicit than anything seen on North American television.
"It is shocking, disturbing and very sad," Mr. Sirri said."Also shocking is the fact that nobody sees this footage outside the Arab world."
This may change in the coming months as federal broadcast regulators consider an application from Canadian cable operators to carry Al-Jazeera, which is currently available only on banned satellite dishes.But a decision from Ottawa is not likely to come before the fall.
Al-Jazeera's visceral, in-your-face journalism produces as many critics as fans.

Odai Sirri, an Al-Jazeera journalist, said the feeling at the Arabic satellite news channel is that the American news organizations rolled over for the U.S. military.Not only did newspapers reject the photos, but most U.S. television networks passed on airing the images of the PoWs.
As the distributors of the information or propaganda that both sides are attempting to get out, the news media in this war are clearly under pressure."Journalists are very important to both sides because this a psychological war," Mr. Sirri said."The Americans and Iraqis are trying to use us."
Al-Jazeera is accused of slanting its coverage in favour of the Iraqis, but Mr. Sirri feels the U.S. media is applying a double standard: It's acceptable to parade Iraqi prisoners in front of the cameras, but not Americans.
Were the U.S. newspapers that chose not to publish the photos making a responsible decision?After all, families had been notified by the time the Monday editions rolled off the presses.The pictures were already on the Al-Jazeera Web site.Weren't readers entitled to get the complete picture of the war?
The Pentagon didn't think so.
