We had a very exciting campus forum yesterday. Over three quarters of the students and staff had spent some time protesting at the Tahrir Square. Many of them had been shot at and beaten. Not all were Egyptian either. Faculty and students from a variety of countries, including the US joined the protests. Everyone prefaced their comments with the saying "Mabruk!" which means congratulations in Arabic, but more specifically expresses joy at the New post-revolution Egypt. People are referring to the events as the Egyptian Revolution. The Egyptian Flag, funnily enough, is a symbol of the Revolution. Perhaps they will call it the Tahrir Revolution.
