Mubarak’s fan club: Enemies of sunlight-addendum

Look who joined Gaddafi and Saudi Arabia in supporting the murderous dictator of Egypt. In Salon.com, there is a  list of  Mubarak’s fan club  distinguished members along with their pictures and quotes in support of the brutal tyrant who has been brutalizing and looting Egypt and enriching his family for 30 years. The list was incomplete, however. I am adding here links to other members of that club that the article in Salon.com overlooked. This is a work in progress. I will be adding other  names to this infamous list as they become available.

Alan Dershowitz, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Yossi Klein Halivi (representing the Israeli Government perspective), Ross Douthat, John Boehner, Tony Blair

An exclusive club of distinguished members, indeed. Note  that these hypocrites’ affiliation cuts across the ideological spectrum.  

Long live democracy if these characters are its pillars and leaders!

Update. Two more distinguished members have joined the Mubarak’s fan club.

CharlesKrauthammers of The Washington Post

“Who doesn’t love a democratic revolution? Our paramount moral and strategic interest in Egypt is real democracy in which power does not devolve to those who believe in one man, one vote, one time. That would be Egypt’s fate should the Muslim Brotherhood prevail. That was the fate of Gaza, now under the brutal thumb of Hamas.”

Did anyone at the editorial board at the WP remind this man that Mubarak is one man, was not elected, and Egypt has been under his brutal thumb for  30 years?

Joe Klein of the Time:

 “A smarter foreign policy would quietly promote a careful transition from autocracy to something more benign. The best way to do this is to latch onto institutions, not individual leaders, in the developing countries we seek as allies.” That institution? The military. “Military aid comes with strings that bind–the continuing need for spare parts, for example. But strong armies create security, a necessary precursor for democracy”

Which alternate universe do these “experts” live in? Mubarak IS a general and Has been ruling and crushing people and providing the stability the “experts” are talking about for 30 years!
