|Awad : As a diplomat we deal with these rumors frequently|
The presidency spokesperson Soliman Awad said today during the press conference which was held at Orba Palace that as a diplomat he dealt with these rumors frequently accusing foreign intelligence agencies of spreading these rumors to target Egypt's stability and role in the region !! Ironically these rumors come from Mubarak's regime best allies in the world : Israel and the United States.
I knew about that report from Bahraini Al Bawaba when it claimed that NY times published an alleged CIA assessment report claiming that President Mubarak is sick and has got only one year to live ,I can't find that report in NY Times thought !! Al Bawaba also mentioned another report in Washington Post that expresses the concern of the American administration with the future of Egypt , again I can't find it because it was not published in the Washington Post but rather in the Washington Times.
YNet News also spoke about that WT report as WP report by the way.The Israelis are still talking about the health of Mubarak more than we do now . Bibi says that Mubarak is more than fine and Mubarak's BBF the hero of Shakid says that Mubarak's voice on the phone is perfect and he does not suffer from anything from one side while from another side you got a Knesset member who advises his prime minister not to rush to negotiate with dying Mubarak !!??
The health of Mubarak is still the talk of town in the World despite the President's very busy week from meetings and activities unlike the reports claiming that he got a terminally ill cancer with one year to live only. These activities of course are a message directed to the whole world that Mubarak is alive yet it seems the world does not believe that message like for instance Front Page Magazine which claimed that he got a terminal stomach cancer "it was first esophageal cancer"
Yes there is no smoke without fire and yes it seems that the end of the Mubarak regime seems to be knocking on the door, but I do not know why that this cancer rumor is not that convincing because here we are speaking about cancer in very old age ; even if it is in early stages , an old man like Mubarak got a terminally ill cancer , can't do all those activities.
We are having a dangerous time for sure in Cairo
