Of all the tyrants and dictators in the Arab world, Hosni Mubarak is my favorite. (If you haven’t picked up on the sarcasm, pick it up and let’s move on to the next point.) Hosni Mubarak has always been so dedicated to ensuring the “goodwill” of his people. He has never been a fan of nepotism or cronyism, and obviously does not go to sleep before making sure every Egyptian street child is warm and well fed. His cabinet has also been known for integrity and allegiance to the improvement of Egypt. Of all the lovely dictators in the Arab world, he has never been one to say something and do something else. Also, he is famous for his transparency and openness to criticism (especially by the Egyptian press.)
Looking at pictures of Hosni Mubarak give me tingles in silly places. Also,hearing this quote about his impression of South Sudanese people warmed my heart and made my day:
“I was overjoyed when I found out that all Southerners I met spoke Arabic because they were trained in Egypt”
Collective “Awww” pweaze. How selfless and positively affirming of him! How magnanimous is he? I especially love that no Sudanese person is treated badly under his watch, or ever brutally murdered or shot like a dog. Love him.
Some crazy people, who are pooh-poohers of every great person on earth, say that he is only interested in South Sudan because of Egypt’s desperate need for the completion of Jonglei Canal, a hydro-construction project that guarantees Egypt more than two billion cubic meters of Nile water annually. I say hydropolitcal motives have no place in his tender heart!
Those people are delusional and clearly want to convince the world that Hosni Mubarak has special interests, and is not doing this for his love and sincere concern for the Southern Sudanese people. After all he did say:
“I came to Juba for the first time and it gives you an indication that we are concerned about southern Sudan”.
Say Nay to silly skeptics and vindictive vendettas. Haters.
