*Mubarak, didn’t you get the point AS YET?*

Hosni Mubarak's speech last night was so utterly pathetic! His arrogance was shocking as he kept referring to his 'achievements', 'sacrifices' and apparent 'love' for Egypt. Anyone who doesn't know him might have thought "what a selfless man". His refusal to step down get out - only highlights his hedonistic nature and forms a direct paradox for his "love for the people"and "I've safeguarded peace" claims.

May Allah protect the people of Egypt and remove from them their oppressive rulers. Ameen.

One of the Twitter feeds read:
Dear Hosni Mubarak, Thank you for making me seem like a hero, Sincerely Ben Ali


UPDATE: Mubarak has finally stepped Down! ALHAMDULILLAH! ALLAHU AKBAR! The army is now in control of Egypt - I wonder who will be the next leader?

Agree with you Sis 100%. I wrote on a board that I am a member of, about how he always seems to make it more about himself rather than the people and the interest of the nation at large.

As I am sure you know, people like him, their ego's are too big and they are blind to reality. That ego will not let him be humble and just be a man and go away, as his people want. Also, the fact that he referred to them as his children/he is their father (though this is how his supporters refer to him) is that much more insulting, but again, typical of tyrants/dictators (sorry if I sound too American in those choice of words, lol).

I've read that he has left the country, to go to his vacation spot, Sharm-Al-Shaikh for the time being, but of course, it would be best if he didn't come back, though not likely.

Also, the sister who runs the board I mentioned, said that she saw someone on the news, who asked "Why does he not leave? Why is he still there?" and the response this person gave was "Because his two main supporters - America and Israel, don't want him to go now" despite what the politicians are saying (Obama, etc) in public.

Let's see what happens.

This is the very man who told Saddam once, you should step down as your people don't want you anymore and today his words have returned unto him. Perhaps while he seeks shelter his words will offer him some comfort as he sees his people rejoice on his exit!
