Major Unconfirmed Rumors Spread Across The Internet That Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak Is Dead
As reported by Neal Ungerleider at True/Slant, rumors are spreading across the Arab-speaking internet that Egyption Prisdent Hosni Mubarak has died after surgery in Germany.

The talk of the Egyptian blogosphere right now is a fast-spreading rumor that President Hosni Mubarak has died. Hundreds of Egyptian and Arabic-speaking Twitter users are posting news of the 81-year-old leader’s death. The reports occurred after reports of Mubarak dying in a German hospital were broadcast on Russian television and on Arabic television.

Hosni Mubarak has been the President of Egypt since 1981, making him the country’s longest-serving leader since Mohammed Ali.

Ungerleider goes onto lay out what is known and what is speculation, and notes some odd moves on the part of the Egyption government, including the banning of Skype.

Chalk this up as MAJOR UNCONFIRMED RUMOR. But we thought you should know that it's out there.

For what it's worth, the same rumors bubbled up in 2004.

Here's what our Gregory White observes:

Mubarak's death would start a fight for power in Egypt, with Mubarak's family in line to win due to the loyalty of the secret police and military. The Muslim brotherhood, staunch opponents of Egypt's ambiguos position on israel would be second choice. Their sizable membership, along with renewed anti Israel sentiment due to the 1500 new settlements Netanyahu approved, could increase populist sentiment around the party. At best they will be appeased, at worst they'll be jailed and beaten.

An outside option is the pro liberalisation group which would like to see the state's more than 50 percent grip on the economy abate.

United states middle east envoy Richard holbrooke will have a more difficult visit to Israel this week than previously imagined if this rumor proves true.

Thanks for the research!

This would be huge if true Mubarak wanted his son to assume power but the Muslim brotherhood is growing in strength and may take power

This could affect everything form US/Egyptian relations to any peace deal involving the Palestinians and Israel and maybe even peace between Israel & Egypt


If true it could re-shape the Middle East

Re: Major Unconfirmed Rumors Spread Across The Internet That Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak Is Dead
I'm looking at news sources in the Middle East to confirm this, and this really short blurb from Middle East News Agency was all I could find:

" 109 14/03/2010 14:55 GMT Relevancy: 100%
Egypt / Mubarak / Greetings
Greek president, Indian PM wish Mubarak speedy recovery after surgery"

When I clicked on that article, it brought up a log-in window, so I couldn't access the article. It didn't say anything about where he had the surgery, but at least this confirms he had an operation. I wonder what it was for?

Re: Major Unconfirmed Rumors Spread Across The Internet That Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak Is Dead
The talk of the Egyptian blogosphere right now is a fast-spreading rumor that President Hosni Mubarak has died. Hundreds of Egyptian and Arabic-speaking Twitter users are posting news of the 81-year-old leader’s death. The reports occurred after reports of Mubarak dying in a German hospital were broadcast on Russian television and on Arabic television.

Hosni Mubarak has been the President of Egypt since 1981, making him the country’s longest-serving leader since Mohammed Ali.

So… is Mubarak dead?

Here is what is publicly known. As always, the caveat must be made that Egypt exercises heavy-handed press censorship on the press. Also keep in mind that Mubarak’s health is among the most taboo subjects in the Egyptian press: Journalists have been jailed in the past for writing about Mubarak’s health. So all this, again, is written with a grain of salt.

Hosni Mubarak traveled to Heidelberg University Hospital in Heidelberg, Germany two weeks ago to have a growth removed from his small intestine and to have his gall bladder removed. Three public statements were made in the past week.

The first, by Health Minister Hatem al-Gabali, is a week old:

“The state of the president’s health continues to improve two days after the operation [...] Over the coming two days, the medical team treating the president will make a new report on the president’s health condition.”

The second is from Dr. Markus Buechler, a pancreatic surgery specialist at Heidelberg. He reported that benign tissues were removed from Mubarak a few days later and that he was in the ICU:

“The final pathology report has confirmed the benign nature of the tissues removed during the surgery [...] President Mubarak’s convalescence phase in the coming days will include increased physical mobility to recover from all the effects of the surgical intervention. [...] President Mubarak’s overall medical condition continues to improve in a satisfactory manner. Yesterday he was transferred from the intensive care unit to a regular room in our hospital. [...] He is also expected to gradually return to normal diet. The president will remain during this phase under our medical care and our direct and continuous supervision.”

The third statement was made on Sunday morning, German time, again by Buechler. This one was much more curt:

“Mubarak is progressing normally.”

Note that none of the hospital statements said anything about when Mubarak would be released.

In a strange bout of timing, Egyptian authorities decided to ban Skype.

If Mubarak is indeed dead, a power struggle is expected between his hand-picked successor, son Gamal Mubarak, military/intelligence candidate General Omar Suleiman and former International Atomic Energy Head Mohammed el-Baradei, who recently returned to Egypt to a flurry of public acclaim.

Once again, we do not know if Mubarak is alive or dead. We do know that the wall of silence around his hospital stay, however, is strange even for these circumstances. But most important of all, Mubarak is 81 years old. World leaders who have reached that age, frankly, do not tend to stay for long.

An Egyption lawyer has filed a lawsuit again the Egyptian Minister of Justice Mamdouh Merhi and others accusing them of misleading the Egyptian people by hiding the truth.

The lawyer, Hamed Sayed Makki, claimed in the case memo that the minister has been hiding the death of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak.

What's more interesting, or maybe unbelievable, is that he believe that Mubarak has been dead since 2004 while winning the past elections in 2005 (a year after his alleged death).
