Hosni Mubarak had harsh words for the United States and what he described as its misguided quest for democracy in the Middle East in a telephone call with an Israeli lawmaker a day before he quit as Egypt's president.
The legislator, former cabinet minister Binyamin Ben-Eliezer, said on Israel TV Friday he came away from the 20-minute conversation Thursday with the feeling the 82-year-old leader realized "it was the end of the Mubarak era."
"He had very tough things to say about the United States," said Ben-Eliezer, a member of the center-left Labor Party who has held talks with Mubarak on numerous occasions while serving in various Israeli coalition governments.
"He gave me a lesson in democracy and said: 'We see the democracy the United States spearheaded in Iran and with Hamas, in Gaza, and that's the fate of the Middle East,'" Ben-Eliezer said.
"'They may be talking about democracy but they don't know what they're talking about and the result will be extremism and radical Islam,'" he quoted Mubarak as saying.
"He contended the snowball (of civil unrest) won't stop in Egypt and it wouldn't skip any Arab country in the Middle East and in the Gulf.
"He said 'I won't be surprised if in the future you see more extremism and radical Islam and more disturbances -- dramatic changes and upheavals," Ben-Eliezer added.

He’s right, of course.......
I agree with Mubarak. So either Obama is incompetent or diabolical.
He can be both..........
He’s blinded to ideology by ideology.............
I really, really hope that he is wrong. But, I’m very much afraid he isn’t.
Notice he didn't say "Iraq".
That's because it's working.
So either Obama is incompetent or diabolical.
He’s an EVIL sonofabitch.
Unfortunately I think Mubarak is 100% right and he would definitely be someone to know this.
I wonder in what language they speak to each other? English? Arabic?
The muslim, Hussein Obama: “Mission accomplished.”
“O” isn’t anything in and of himself but he is the petri dish that every social/political pathogen in America thrives on!!
This won’t stop Obama from taking a curtain call.
Osamabama at work.
O isnt anything in and of himself but he is the petri dish that every social/political pathogen in America thrives on!!
The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to an electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problem is much deeper and far more serious than Mr. Obama, who is a mere symptom of what ails us. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confederacy of fools that made him their prince. The republic can survive a Barack Obama It is less likely to survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their president. — Author Unknown
He’s right. And I think we can forget about those 2012 elections in this country. There isn’t going to be any. The muzzies are in charge now.
