Egypt: The Games Regimes Play

Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Egypt, Lebanon, Politics, War & Conflict

Baheyya describes Gamal Hosnie Mubarak [1] (son of Egyptian President [2]) visit to Lebanon as adding insult to injury by pretending to care for the Lebanese people [3]. She says: “But why should I be surprised? What else should one expect from the Mubarak regime but grovelling to the Israelis, using the Lebanese for a photo op, and keeping one nervous eye on the outraged Egyptian public and another on the demanding American bosses? A despised, depleted regime desperately clinging to power should never be cause for wonderment. A despised, depleted regime seeking to salvage some paltry war profits should not be cause for surprise.”
