JC says that that he received two emails informing him that three main opposition websites are now blocked by the government. Users of the main ISPs (Linkdotnet, Tedata and Raya) in Egypt cannot have any access to these sites anymore.

These websites are: * Save Egypt Front * Masreyat * Egyptian Talks

The Ikhwan website is still accessible, which was blocked in 2005. I think blocking an Ikhwan site now is harder than it used to be. The 87 Ikhwan MPs will bother the government about their own sites only.

Egyptian Talks is a respectable forum with long history of discussing many political issues in Egypt openely and in reasonable and moderate tone. Although I remember once they had to shut one of their forums that discussed an issue related to Mubarak.

You can access these sites using a proxy. Hide my ass is a good one.
