Who was Hosni Mubarak? | Start Here | EXTRA

Egypt’s former leader Hosni Mubarak has died at the age of 91. A hero to some, a despot to others, he was president of Egypt for almost 30 years but lost his grip on power in just 18 days.
Mubarak’s forced resignation was felt across the region and around the world. So who was the man who some will remember as a modern-day pharaoh?

    Egypt was prosperous and had prestige under his leadership.Ask Egyptians themselves.

    History reveals most of the Arab Nations’ Presidents/Rulers have a decent military background. Is this a criteria for holding of Presidential post?? Saddam Hussein, Muammar al-Gaddafi, Omar al-Bashir etc etc

    He was president of Egypt when I visited (not shocking). A week after my family visited around 7 Americans were killed by extremists in Egypt. There is still a problem with getting archeology, geological, and any other research done if the results will claim the Earth is older than the traditional religious age. The history of the Pharo’s own place 21 dynasties, by ancient Egyptian writing (hyroglyphs are writing I don’t care if people disagree) is older than the story of creation with Adam and Eve.

    • Lorax Dave Walters Reply

      @BE5EET Why do you think the government of Egypt won’t allow research to suggest an older history?

    • BE5EET Reply

      @Lorax Dave Walters Who said that? Every Egyptian knows that Ancient Egypt is more than 7000 years old. We are always bragging about it like it’s gonna help us now or something! xD it’s well known even for little kids around here, I’m Egyptian btw hence why I find your story a bit weird!

    • BE5EET Reply

      @Lorax Dave Walters and btw the Egyptian government or to be more precise the Zionists ruling Egypt are always digging for history and ancient monuments which are then stolen and sold to the UAE and others in “diplomatic shipments”. I wish your story were true, at least they won’t be stealing anything! Unfortunately this ain’t the case!

    • Lorax Dave Walters Reply

      @BE5EET Stolen history causes division when the world needs communication and unity.

    • BE5EET Reply

      @Lorax Dave Walters True that! The thing is you gonna have to ask Trump and other European leaders to stop supporting Israel and their mad dog Sisi to get a little closer to this bright future, which (and I’m not being cynical) will not happen anytime soon, however the thing you said about “communication and unity” reminded me of this verse from the Quran:
      “O mankind, We have created you male and female, and appointed you races and tribes, that you may know one another. Surely the noblest among you in the sight of God is the most God-fearing of you.” wow we really need to “know one another”!

    Mubarak used to present himself as peace and stability broker throughout the middle east but no one bought into this image from him 👌the most part of your brilliant speech which resonated with me.
    Indeed Mubarak has gone but he left his legacy sustainable behind him 👌

    He and all his cabal were so corrupt, they institutionalized corruption as a norm in Egyptian society. Under Mubarak Egypt became a failed state and sub servant to Israel .

    Husni Mubarak was a sanguine dictator, an authoritarian, a piece of human excrement but, above all, he was a US & Isreal lapdog. No love lost for the puppet.

    Please make a video on the “Afghan deal process” whether it will be succeeded or not, and what is the role of Pakistan is this deal?

    • Rauf Bhatti Reply

      If such a video was made – don’t expect it to reflect goodly on Pakistan. The ISI has, historically, had strong ties with the Afghan Taliban. So strong – that at times some journos & media suggest that Pakistan controls the Afghan Taliban (true in some cases). Hence, bringing the Taliban and the US on the same table is something that has been done by the influence Pakistan has on the Taliban. Hope this explains!!

  69. Hyetts Reply

    Let’s be fair: the toppling of Hosni Mubarak didn’t directly lead to a more repressive regime afterwards. It led to a democratically elected government that failed to survive. If Hosni stayed in power until his death, it would have been just as likely a more repressive regime would succeed him. It was better to take chances by getting rid of Mubarak.
