Mazhar Shahin the Egyptian cleric who has become the distinguished face of the Tahrir Square protestors now facing off with the Egyptian army, has called for the army leadership to immediately transfer power to a government of eminent civilians. During a Friday prayer, Shahin stated to the loud support of thousands in attendance, “The revolution is the one that thinks, the revolution is the one that decides, it is the one that judges … Our revolution was a body without a head. Today, the revolution will have a head … Few of the revolution’s demands have been met … The people insist on completing their revolution. Either we live in dignity, or we die here in Tahrir.” The civilian government Shahin proposed includes Mohamad ElBaradei the head of the UN nuclear watchdog.
