Egypt May 4 Strike Fizzles, “inshallah”

The May 4 strike that the April 6 group planned seems to have fizzled. Whether it was the security preparations, the Muslim Brotherhood calls for protesters to stay home in a peaceful (non) protest, or the fact that Mubarak promised a 30% raise to the civil service, something appears to have taken the wind out of the strikers’ sails.

I guess that the Egyptian economy and government will be improved “inshallah,” if God wills it. But I don’t expect Egyptians to do anything about it.
