Algeria Spanks Mubarak.....Not the first

Following Sharm Al-Sheikh attacks, President Mubarak gave orders to convene an Arab summit. He ordered Amr Moussa, the Arab League Secretary General, to start contacting Arab leaders. Algeria, current president of the Arab League round, refused the call.

Apparently, nobody told Mubarak that he does not own the Arab League as he imagines that he also owns Egypt and the Egyptian people. Amr Moussa apparently also forgot himself. Nobody told him that he is not supposed to take orders from Mubarak. He is not any longer working under the Egyptian regime. Also, looks like nobody around Mubarak is aware of any protocols to tell him what’s right and wrong. Ignorance became the language of the ruling regime of Egypt, continuously embarrassing the Egyptian people in front of other governments. The death of Saudi King Fahd came as a very good excuse to postpone the summit... A blessing in disguise .....

I believe that mubarak is trying to use the arab summet as a part of his presidential campaign while he's promoting sham again, but i have the following notes:

1- the call for an arab summet was distributed before the sharm attack, i personally saw amr moussa on alarabiya before the attack saying that egypt called for an arab summet, and he's making tours in the arab countries to get the approval, and he said the summet is expected at the last week of july or the first week of august
2- the situation in iraq after the killing of the arab diplomats as well as the israeli withdraw from gaza are the main issues that was the reason for the call for an exeptional summet
3- the place was not decided, and mubarak took the occasion to announce it at sharm to make it as a response to the attack
4-as far as i know, this needs rechecking, that any arab country has the right to call for an exceptional summet, and the secretary general is requested to gather the approvals, and in case of obtaining the approval of 1/3 of the arab countries the summet should take place under the presidency of the arab leader in charge of the summet (in this case the algerian president)
5- I'm not sure of the reason of the algerian anger, but it might be that they were expecting to be consulted before the other countries, and i think that this should have been done as protocol wise, but i'm not sure if this is the mistake of amr moussa or abou elgheit

6- few weeks ago an iraqi minister was saying that the arab league became a department of the egyptian foreign affairs ministry, and seems that this feeling is spread among arab world, and this we have to take care of

Hi Darsh-safsata,

Mubarak in a last ditch attempt is trying to play the leader.

I agree with the Iraqi minister. Besides the inefficiency of the Arab League, it reflects the chaotic and confused state of the Arab regimes which adds to the League's futility.

I am glad Algeria is not just aquiessing to Mubarak's demands because it's not his place and because the summit is simply useless, like every other summit the AL has held. I mean, what has it ever really acomplished? This is a waste of Arab money!

You have to excuse Mubarak, he does not know that he does not own us, not to mention the AL.

Arab summits are a manifestation how Arab leaders are capable of squandering money that should be used for the development of the peoples in this region. ALAS and ALACK!!!
