Violence broke out in Tahrir Square between pro-Mubarak and pro-Democracy demonstrators, rattling Egypt. There are reports that this violence was choreographed by Mubarak, who paid demonstraters to clash with pro-Democracy protestors. However, some are legitimately saying that the protests should end and Mubarak should be respected enough to stay in power until he steps down.

Omar Khalifa is the managing director at O Media, a media company in Cairo. He says his country is not ready for democracy yet, even though he supports freedom.
