Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak (82) has been ruling Egypt for 28 years. He’s received more than USD 50 billion in outright U.S. aid but has failed to deliver anything to his own people.
He hasn’t contributed anything to regional peace beyond what his predecessor, the late Anwar Sadat, had already accomplished at Camp David 32 years ago. There has also been an exponential rise in sectarian violence against the Christian Copts.
Since Mr. Obama’s celebrated speech at Cairo University three months ago, there have been more than 40 attacks. Yet Mr. Mubarak has continued to get a free pass from the U.S. and has even received outright praise from senior members of the Obama administration.
The tiny fraction of U.S. aid that is earmarked for Egypt’s civil society is subject to the Mubarak regime’s veto.

President Obama never misses a chance of telling us all the wonderful things that Islamic nations have contributed to the West, and the World at large.
But what is it?
Obama should start to give us good examples. Has the Media in the USA become so dull that they cant ask him good questions?
The «peace loving» Hosni Mubarak, 30 years after the end of hostility with Israel, has still not payed Jerusalem a visit. Not even once has he traveled to Israel to promote the Camp David Peace deal from 1979. This is not a joke.
