from Mubarak2005,com:

The program is a clear, straightforward commitment to create 4.5 million new sustainable jobs over the next 6 years.


The fifth program is devoted to meeting the demands and the needs of the middle class, a major engine for growth and progress in any society.

sounds like someone else:
Barack Obama:"Creating good sustainable jobs is the single most important thing that we can do to rebuild the middle class," Obama said earlier in unveiling proposals to expand a child-care tax credit and encourage savings to demonstrate his concern for middle-class families.


   The platform, as a whole, is committed to building a fairer and more inclusive society

from Amnesty International:
   Today, 31 January, marks the launch of its Europe-wide anti-discrimination photo contest. The aim is to mobilise people to express the ideal of a fairer and more inclusive society as creatively and imaginatively as they can.

   Some old sustainable, fair and inclusive leftist lingo

DUring this period Mubarak rammed through constitutional changes in 5 days to block the Muslim Brotherhood from ballot access.

Just today the torturer Suliaman was on EgyptTV claiming the Mubarak regime needs 70 days to change the constitution.

The US government is backing a murderous sociopath that is hated widely throughout the Arab world.

NO matter if Egypt synthesizes a stable government from this crisis, the US is going to lose , and lose big... in the mid term and long term.

What we need now is some top-flight investigative journalist who can tell us whether Mubarak accepted or rejected Obama’s friend request...

I'm sure the webpage has little connection to reality. It is interesting that they chose leftist rhetoric to sell him. I suspect that any society that falls for that sort of thing is the same sort of society that may find itself enslaved by an oppressive government - .

I don't think our government is supporting Mubarak. It looks like the community organizer in charge of our executive branch of government is supporting the Muslim Brotherhood.
