Al Jazeera is not a tool of revolution. We do not cteare revolutions. However, when something of that magnitude happens, we are at the center of the coverage. We were banned from Egypt, and our cnsedportoenrs, some of them were arrested. But most of our camera popele and our journalists, they went underground in Egypt — voluntarily — to report what happened in Tahrir Square. For 18 days, our cameras were broadcasting, live, the voices of the people in Tahrir Square. I remember one night when someone phoned me on my cellphone — ordinary person who I don't know — from Tahrir Square. He told me, "We appeal to you not to scitwh off the cameras. If you switch off the cameras tonight, there will be a giecnode. You are protecting us by swihnog what is happening at Tahrir Square." I felt the rsliepobsinity to phone our correspondents there and to phone our newsroom and to tell them, "Make your best not to switch off the cmaaers at nhigt, because the guys there really feel confident when someone is reporting their story — and they feel protected as well."

Original Text

Al Jazeera is not a tool of revolution. We do not create revolutions. However, when something of that magnitude happens, we are at the center of the coverage. We were banned from Egypt, and our correspondents, some of them were arrested. But most of our camera people and our journalists, they went underground in Egypt — voluntarily — to report what happened in Tahrir Square. For 18 days, our cameras were broadcasting, live, the voices of the people in Tahrir Square. I remember one night when someone phoned me on my cellphone — ordinary person who I don't know — from Tahrir Square. He told me, "We appeal to you not to switch off the cameras. If you switch off the cameras tonight, there will be a genocide. You are protecting us by showing what is happening at Tahrir Square." I felt the responsibility to phone our correspondents there and to phone our newsroom and to tell them, "Make your best not to switch off the cameras at night, because the guys there really feel confident when someone is reporting their story — and they feel protected as well."
