With the impending Shura, parliamentary and presidential elections tensions rise as opposition continue to be suppressed and targeted by Mubarak's regime.  Supporters have directed efforts utilizing the services technology offers as a political alternative

Activists and opposition such as the Muslim Brotherhood bloc, ElBaradei, and Kefaya however, acknowledge that true change will only come about through action in the streets. Nevertheless the support which comes from online readers reflect the true pent up frustration of the Egyptian people which may very well trigger the uprise necessary for change

While analysts stress that it is impractical to think that online activism will turn things around it may create the existence and strength necessary for opposition to challenge the state and its ways.
