The death of President Mubarak: a story that interests us all.

 by Federico Wardal

This is Federico Wardal’s perspective. We’re aware Mubarak was a controversial leader and encourage comments and a lively discussion of his legacy from the public!


 On February 25, the former President of the Arab Republic of Egypt Mohammed Hosni Mubarak died at the age of 91.  “Commander of enormous value in the Egyptian Air Force and hero in the October war against Israel, he restored the dignity and pride of the Arab nation of Egypt.  A three-day mourning period is proclaimed across the country starting on Wednesday 26 February “(from press release by  the Presidency of the Arab Republic of Egypt).  

Mubarak has been a very important figure in our extremely complicated world history characterized by the growing speed and danger of events connected for better or worse also to the technological development of mass communication.  After the 1973 war with Israel, Egypt is in constant economic growth, tourism is flourishing as well as trade, investment, construction, industry, culture, art.  With Mubarak, the stability of the country and peace are guaranteed.  This, however, is in conflict with ten-year foreign political plans in which Egypt enters as a victim.  But the diplomatic ability of Mubarak and his staff with the great powers are genius  and in addition to safeguarding Egypt they determine an action of world peace.  

The country becomes a cornerstone of Human and Women’s and Children’s Rights thanks also to the courageous action of First Lady Mrs. Suzanne Mubarak who created new hospitals  for children and also for this reason was called   “Mubarak mother” from the Egyptians.  Moushira Khattab, in the Mubarak government, has a strict law against Female Genital Mutilation promulgated.  

With the reopening of the legendary Bibliotheca Alexandrina, where all human knowledge was kept, Egypt returns to being the world capital of culture, as it had been until the time of Queen Cleopatra VII ( 30 b.C. ) . On 16 October 2002 the enormous ultra-modern building of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina ( was inaugurated in the presence of heads of state and royals from all over the planet and Mubarak and Mrs. Mubarak, who is its president, are acclaimed by  all.  Alexandria in Egypt returns to its former glory.  Its universities flourish.  Cultural, scientific and educational exchanges have a worldwide reach. Poetry is strongly promoted.   Bibliotheca Alessandrina reaches millions of visitors per year, but there is one very important detail: the Aswan declaration that founded Bibliotheca Alexandrina has the support of all the countries of the world, including Israel and Palestine.  Such a fact is unique in the history of world peace, dialogue, cooperation, development, civilization.

Mubarak establishes excellent relations with Israel.   Despite all this, pre-established foreign political plans are progressing and as expected for a number of years on September 11, 2001 the tragedy happens in NYC and the whole Arab world is being put in a bad light.  In reality, the global opening of the Bibliotheca Alexandrina had been scheduled in October of that same year and everything is canceled and postponed to the following year, as written.  The black clouds of NYC are programmed to spread other tragedies around the world and especially in the Arab world.  The NY tragedy is part of the “Arab Spring” program to be implemented over 10 years (2001-2011).  Mubarak continues his peace policy.  

He even acts with generosity towards members of the Egyptian aristocracy, often giving financial reimbursements for the assets confiscated from them during the 1952 revolution that brought about the fall of the Egyptian royal dynasty, dethroning King Farouk. ( As well as President El Sisi gave recently a diplomatic passport to the king Farouk son Fuad II of Egypt ) . In 2005, Mubarak, first among the presidents of Egypt, introduced Christian holidays for the benefit of millions of Egyptian Christians.  But the “Arab Spring” program must be carried out and despite Mubarak’s action for total religious tolerance, many Christians are victims of terrorist attacks.  And here in 2010 fall Tunis and its president and then Libya with Gaddafi.  The plan calls for the fall of Mubarak and Egypt.  

In 2011 there are presidential elections in Egypt and the Muslim Brotherhood is unleashed against Mubarak and the military who have ruled the country since the 1952 revolution. But without the military , peace is no longer guaranteed.  The manipulation of information, especially via Face Book, ignites, propagates and feeds the revolution in the country.  Mubarak resigns on 11 February 2011. The Muslim Brotherhood begins to kill everywhere in the country whose economy also collapses due to the sudden total disappearance of tourism.  The shops previously full of all goods are empty.  Egypt is isolated, immersed and surrounded by the neighboring and neighboring countries destroyed by the Arab Spring.  

The nights of Cairo and Alexandria, always crowded, are now empty.  Curfew reigns.  Egypt loses its face.  A permanent cordon of students defends Bibliotheca Alexandrina.  But the Egyptians are beginning to realize that the Muslim Brotherhood are just killing mercenaries and people are shouting at them: “you are not Egyptians, you are not Muslims, go away!”  A counter revolution in the revolution.  Cairo is sacked and violence, intense as never seen before, explodes.  Mubarak is imprisoned and his name removed everywhere.  Mohammed Morsi proclaims himself president, but after a year of struggle, Egypt rises up against him, because he is aware of the game that leads to the total destruction of the country and unanimously proclaims Abdel Fattath El Sisi as president, military like Mubarak on 8 June  2014.  El Sisi must rebuild Egypt and its economy and build a new arm of the Suez canal in just three months! An absolute record in history.  Egypt, in less than a year from the total catastrophe, regains its face, but the Egyptians, shocked, do not realize it.  

Some terrorist attacks against Christians and even Muslims, but heroically Egypt challenges everything and everyone and terrorism is severely repressed.  Mubarak is released and the new generations begin to appreciate the absolute guarantee of peace obtained thanks to Mubarak for thirty years.  Mubarak hasn’t changed.  He always has the kindness, intelligence and determination that characterize him at every meeting.  Mubarak above all loves his country more and more and helps him as he can, always making available his great experience.

 The country continues its growth, despite the serious economic injuries and the development programs started with the Mubarak government are being implemented as the strengthening of the metropolitan networks of Cairo (22 million inhabitants) and the creation of the immense modern New Cairo in the area of  new modern and huge international airport.  But the great news will come in June and we will talk about it extensively.  This is the opening of the majestic museum of Giza, in the area of ​​the three pyramids and sphinx.  A great contribution to this realization was given by the Egyptian archaeologist Zaki Hawass, living legend, of which we will speak soon.  President El Sisi, proclaiming three days of national mourning for the death of former President Mubarak, surely and completely met the wishes of the Egyptian people. Mubarak smiles happily at his Egypt and the world.
