Egypt: Is Mubarak Dead?

“I got a call late tonight from a friend asking, “is Hosni Mubarak dead?” I dont quite know where he got his information from but supposedly there is a rumor that Hosni..AKA “the Great Dictator” was airlifted to a hospital in Germany and that his fate is unknown and presumed dead!,” writes Egyptian blogger D. B. Shobrawy.


  • Adel

    I heard that mubarak is dead too!

  • He is so alive. Ever seen blazing fire?
    We’re doomed to this man!

  • xxx

    he needs a chance for radical changes. God should gives him more 20 years chance.

    He is Immortal

  • Yes, I agree. Mubarak is immortal.
    He’s the pharaohs’ curse, and we are definitly doomed.

    Seriously, though.
    This guy is too old to govern a country and take care of 80,000,000 and soon to be 100,000,000 people.

    Who will take over if he dies? The prime minister, Ahmed Nazeef?
