Mubarak didn’t you have enough already? How old are you for goodness sake? 21 raring to take on the whole world by the scruff of the neck? No, you’re close to 80, and no matter how much hair colouring you use, you have at least one foot in the grave, no matter what you do.

As a “leader” of the Arab world, wouldn’t you want to be remembered for the good you have done in your life for the very Egypt that all Arabs regard as our mother and our cultural mainstay? Why then are you leaving a legacy of unfulfilled promises? Or has the money and rampant corruption got the better of you? Is your reputation not worth sacrificing your position and yes, even the possible leadership position of your son for? What will you be remembered by when you go, and you definitely will go? Do you wish to be remembered as that deranged old guy that tried to bring the monarchy back to Egypt? That peon whose strings are controlled by the Americans? For what you are doing now is nothing but strengthens that opinion, regardless of how true it is!

For the sake of Egypt, let the apprehended go. Let Alaa go back to his wife and his readers. Let the judges continue to attempt to fix their lot for the better of Egypt and the Arab world. Let them question the elections and if they find fault, have the decency to acknowledge a wrong and move on with your life. Don’t waste all that you have achieved in the very last years of your life.

Release Alaa!

Release Alaa and his colleagues. All they want is a better Egypt.

All what we ALL want as Arabs is a better Egypt.

The mother of the world.

  1. Well said Mahmood. I’m writing a story on this very same thing on my own blog right now, asking people to write letters of protest to the Egyptian Embassy.

    Hey, I learn so much more about ‘your world’ and the rest of the Middle East through you and Saudi Jeans.. Like Carsten, I will do the same thing and add to making DA NOISE!
    Let’s see what kind of reaction we can get…
    thx for bringing it to our attention Mahmoud,
    Ingrid

  3. Ingrid says:

    Btw…I wrote a post on Alaa and credit where credit is due; I followed Carsten’s lead and added a few addresses of Egyptian embassies for people to write to. Let’s make a concerted effort to unnerve them just a little more
