Egypts Mubarak From war hero to convict

first_img Comments   Share   It was an inglorious end for a leader who rose to power after Islamic extremists assassinated his predecessor Anwar Sadat and then steered the nation through the turmoil that swept the Middle East buffeted by wars, terrorism and religious extremism.The frail, 84-year-old Mubarak heard the verdict from a gurney in the defendants’ cage, surrounded by his sons and former officials who stood in the dock to answer for the crimes of his nearly 30-year rule. The decision can be appealed.That scene was in stark contrast to the image Mubarak had sought to portray as the rock-solid “father of the nation.” In the early days of his rule, Mubarak’s stern, colorless demeanor was a welcome change from the destructive charisma of Gamal Abdel-Nasser and the mercurial style of Sadat.As Mubarak clung to power, the status quo that he personified became increasingly loathed. Like the Great Sphinx that sits immutable through the millennia, this ancient land once revered as the vibrant leader of the Arab world stagnated. Its masses struggled to feed and clothe themselves while countries of the Gulf _ once little more than desert oases _ seized the role that Egypt once enjoyed.At home, Mubarak and his aging coterie of generals and business tycoons were unable to check boiling currents of popular fury, or harness the history unfolding in his nation of 85 million _ the most populous in the Arab world. Mohammed Hosni Mubarak was born on May 4, 1928, in the village of Kafr el-Moseilha in the Nile delta province of Menoufia. His family, like Sadat’s and Nasser’s, was lower middle class.After joining the air force in 1950, Mubarak moved up the ranks as a bomber pilot and instructor and rose to leadership positions. He earned nationwide acclaim as commander of the air force during the 1973 Middle East war _ a conflict which many Egyptians see as a victory _ and was vice president when Sadat was assassinated. Mubarak, who was sitting beside Sadat in the reviewing stand, escaped with a minor hand injury.In his early days, Mubarak made popular moves that held up promise of a more open society, including freeing 1,500 politicians, journalists and clerics jailed during Sadat’s last months in office.But hopes for broader reform dimmed. Mubarak was re-elected in staged, one-man referendums in which he routinely won more than 90 percent approval. He became more aloof, carefully choreographing his public appearances, and his authoritarian governance, buttressed by harsh emergency laws, fueled resentment.Age took its toll on the president, who was once an avid squash player with a consistent style that matched his personality. He became hard of hearing, and was so devastated by the death of a 12-year-old grandson in 2009 that he canceled a trip to the United States. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 A former pilot and air force commander with a combative, stubborn streak, Mubarak took tentative steps toward democratic reform early in his presidency but pulled back toward the dictatorial style that eventually propelled the protests against him that began on Jan. 25, 2011.A 2009 cable from the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, released by the secret-sharing WikiLeaks website, called him “a tried and true realist, innately cautious and conservative,” and with “little time for idealistic goals.”It noted that Mubarak disapproved of the 2003 U.S. invasion that toppled Saddam Hussein of Iraq, which he believed was in need of a “‘tough, strong military officer who is fair’” as leader.“This telling observation, we believe, describes Mubarak’s own view of himself as someone who is tough but fair, who ensures the basic needs of his people,” the cable said. “In Mubarak’s mind, it is far better to let a few individuals suffer than risk chaos for society as a whole.”Yet that very image of cautious stability was once welcomed in the West, which feared that Sadat’s death in a hail of gunfire at a military parade would unleash a wave of unrest that would scuttle the fledgling peace with Israel at a time when America and its allies were panicked over the rise of militant Islam in Iran. Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family Egypt’s influence in the Middle East, meanwhile, waned as the militant groups Hamas and Hezbollah and their patron, Iran, gained momentum and followers. The oil-rich countries of Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates seized the mantle of leadership regional leadership. The growing profile of Turkey, a democracy led by an Islam-inspired government, also chipped away at Egypt’s heavyweight stature in the region.In 2005, Mubarak held the country’s first contested presidential election, an event marred by charges of voter fraud and intimidation. He retrenched when opponents made gains in ensuing parliamentary elections, launching a harsh campaign of arrests against the Muslim Brotherhood, Egypt’s biggest and best organized opposition group that now dominates the parliament elected after Mubarak’s downfall.Before the protests began, Mubarak had been silent on whether he intended to seek re-election in September. But the quick rise of his son, Gamal, through the ruling party caused immense anxiety.The fear that Mubarak was grooming Gamal, a wealthy businessman, to succeed him left many Egyptians feeling trapped in the past, deprived of change and renewal. Then, the uprising in Tunisia delivered an electrifying message: an old order can be ousted. Instead, Mubarak maintained the peace with Israel and kept Egypt free of the grip of Islamic extremism. He struggled with the problems that have long bedeviled the Arab world: choking corruption, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and religious militancy. Economic reforms spurred growth, but the fruits trickled only to a few.He engineered Egypt’s return to the Arab fold after nearly a decade in the cold over its 1979 peace treaty with Israel.Early on, Mubarak crushed an insurgency by Muslim extremists, whose ranks had produced Sadat’s assassins and some future al-Qaida leaders. In the 1990s, he fought hard against another resurgence of Muslim militants whose attacks included the slaughter of dozens of foreign tourists at the temple city of Luxor.Eli Shaked, who served as Israel’s ambassador to Egypt from 2003-2005, described Mubarak as “a strong presence, not charismatic but with a heavy body like a fighter bomber, and very levelheaded.”Shaked said Mubarak met visiting Israeli officials with at least three top advisers by his side, often consulting with them and demonstrating a detailed knowledge of Israeli politics. The Israeli said Mubarak liked “political jokes and witticisms,” but was short on creativity: “The man is completely status quo.” More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Top Stories Mubarak initially responded to protests by saying he would not seek another term, and his government said Gamal Mubarak would not run, either. But the president rejected demands that he step down immediately, telling ABC News that he’d like to leave but feared the country would sink deeper into chaos without him.It was a persuasive argument for 29 years, but in 2011 it was overwhelmed by the cries of huge crowds in Cairo’s Tahrir Square: “Leave!

the cost of cell phone service To be eligible for the program households must have an income at or below 135% of the federal poverty line or must receive Medicaid or food stamp benefits The 2008

the party’s return in Rajasthan Not with Vasundhara Raje as the chief ministerial candidate for sure But if one asks now many would say it is a 50:50 game that could go either way in the coming months So has anything changed I drove to Alwar from Delhi The first stop was Bhiwadi an industrial town across the Haryana border Locals credit Bhairon Singh Shekhawat’s vision for this manufacturing hub In coming years it may well become an extension of Gurgaon-NCR File image of Rajasthan chief minister Vasundhara Raje PTI Little did I expect to get caught in a traffic jam in Bhiwadi But there I was sitting in the midst of “Jagran” procession This was outside one of the many temples in the city run by the Gujjar Samaj The Gujjars came to Bhiwadi after reaping a fortune when land prices soared in Haryana Now they are the dominant set in the area And Sachin Pilot is a Gujjar informed my driver Thus at Alwar I expected to find a resounding endorsement for Pilot Instead the traders I met were rather circumspect Pilot may draw the Gujjar votes but he may not be able to reign in its rowdy elements That might make the others wary Here lies the importance of Ashok Gehlot Pilot is the darling of the national media But Gehlot remains the favourite face of Congress in Rajasthan In recent times no other Congress leader in the state has commanded as much respect as Gehlot In a world where corruption is a relative term Gehlot enjoys a clean image People rate his last term well They admire his administrative acumen and people connect Gehlot fans think had it not been for the “Modi Wave” of 2014 he would have definitely come back for a second inning In recent months Gehlot’s stock has risen further in Rajasthan He gets the credit for Rahul Gandhi’s second coming as it were starting with the Gujarat elections People believe he is the brain behind Rahul’s temple run and “Shiv-Bhakt” makeover They feel as a member of Rahul’s inner coterie he will play a much bigger role in the days to come Pilot has been working hard at a micro-level ever since he took charge of the state unit Congress’ good showing in some of the local elections and by-polls are the result of his efforts But he has still not acquired the stature to stake a claim the top job on his own steam Apart from Gehlot CP Joshi is far from hanging his boots Joshi shows no intention of fading into the sunset yet He still wields enough clout to influence the ticket distribution Pilot will have to contend with all these forces Only Rahul’s endorsement cannot see him through He will need Gehlot’s blessings to advance further It is doubtful if Gehlot will relinquish his turf so early Knowing the Congress it is unlikely to spell out its chief ministerial choice before the elections Rahul is no Narendra Modi that he can sweep state election on his own equity without a strong local face To take on Vasundhara naming Gehlot as the chief ministerial candidate would be the best option for Rahul But will he be able to spare him before the Lok Sabha polls That is the dilemma which should be troubling Rahul The road to Jaipur via the Sariska Tiger Reserve is an orthopaedics delight Because it is sure to cause a few spine dislocations daily A stark contrast to the satin smooth Delhi-Jaipur Highway it merges into Who can tell if these are symbolic of what lies ahead on the election trail In Jaipur the mood as they say is mixed Detractors of Vasundhara were predicting a change of guard in the state for long Much of it was wishful thinking People within the party did not like her imperious style and lack of access The business community at large seemed to prefer the previous regime But their hopes crashed at every turn The last bet was Modi-Shah will project a second face as a chief minister probable in the run-up to the elections But Vasundhara put an end to all speculations She checkmated Amit Shah’s nominee and installed her own candidate as the new state president of the BJP The message was sharp and clear that she remains in control Shah had little option but to declare that BJP will go to the polls with Vasundhara on the driver’s seat It would be naive to believe that Shah-Modi had to field Raje under duress There is a lot going in her favour First the BJP has no other mass leader in Rajasthan No other BJP leader not even Om Mathur has such universal acceptability across the state Even a sharp-shooter like Rajyavardhan Singh Rathore would be an instant casualty of the internal crossfires of the party It is well known that Raje commands the loyalty of over 120 odd MLAs Through them she has her own network across the state Only she has the assured backing of the RSS ground force with her direct line to Nagpur Like Gehlot she has channels open with every caste constituency and regional satraps Over the years she has mastered the art of cutting deals and neutralising opponents This was evident in the way she diffused several political crises during her two tenures But she is not one to rely only upon political manoeuvres to secure her position She has followed structured and well-targeted welfare programmes Schemes like BHAMASHA have won her huge support among women voters and mass connect Vasundhara runs a tight party machinery It would be even more formidable with RSS foot-soldiers With various factions in the state Congress Pilot may not enjoy the same unity of command Like every other state even Vasundhara will have to depend on the Modi Magic to deliver the final goods The balance will tilt decisively in BJP’s favour if the state and Lok Sabha polls are made to coincide an option that cannot be ruled out as yet But as on date no one can write Vasundhara off as some were prone to do a few months ago The contest is still wide open A local wit at the Jaipur Club Bar summed it up with a smart quip Those who decide to vote for Congress will do so in the hope that after the Lok Sabha elections Gehlot will come back as the chief minister People voting for BJP will do so confident of Modi returning as prime minister They will hope that Vasundhara having proved a point might then hand over the baton to a new face and move to a role at the Centre No doubt the outcome in Rajasthan will also impact the Lok Sabha elections But the battle for the chief minister’s chair in Jaipur will not be sealed till the new occupant of the throne in

Updated: March 23 2015 12:55 am If it wants to reduce electricity bills Delhi government has no option but to offer a subsidy But is that warranted Related News Politics in the electricity sector has centred around three issues: access availability and consumer tariffs Electoral promises have naturally then been: electricity connections to all 24/7 electricity supply and if farmers constitute a predominant part of consumers free power for agriculture Delhi has few issues regarding households without electricity connections Under normal conditions round-the-clock supply of electricity is also not a serious concern Supply to agriculture is insignificant Households account for more than 50 per cent of Delhi’s electricity consumption Domestic consumer tariffs are then the only issue left for political play in Delhi The issue then comes down to the promise of reducing the cost of electricity for domestic consumers The fact that electricity in Delhi is being retailed by three private companies lends itself readily to suggestions that domestic consumers are being needlessly overcharged and that electricity bills can be easily brought down by 30 per cent or 50 per cent depending on which political party is making the promise The AAP encashed this issue and came to power in Delhi in 2013 with a promise to reduce consumers’ electricity expenditure by half The party has stormed back to power this year with an overwhelming majority Predictably reducing electricity bills by half is on the agenda Although the promise essentially remains the same the reasons for high electricity bills and the approach to reducing them identified in 2013 are substantially different from 2015 In 2013 the high cost of electricity for the consumer was attributed to inflated bills due to malpractice by distribution companies (discoms) The solution offered was essentially a discom audit independent checking and verification of bills In contrast the reason identified in 2015 is the expensive and unsustainable cost of power procurement (inflated bills due to malpractice by discoms do not get a mention) The approach of the AAP is to: one wriggle out of such power-procurement agreements and replace them with economical ones; two make the Rajghat and Bawana power stations more efficient; and three set up Delhi’s own power station near a pithead To put the issue in perspective the questions to be asked are: first is Delhi’s procurement cost of electricity too high Second can the steps outlined by the AAP in its manifesto bring it down And finally is Delhi’s domestic-consumer electricity tariff exorbitant as compared to other metros like Mumbai and Kolkata To the first question the latest report on the performance of state utilities by the Power Finance Corporation indicates that the cost of bulk power in 2012-13 for Delhi discoms ranged between 77 per cent to 82 per cent of the cost of service to consumers The same ranged between 60 per cent and 64 per cent for discoms whose cost of service is at least as high as Delhi’s Thus the AAP is right in concluding that the high cost of bulk power is a basic problem in Delhi As for the second question Delhi gets about 4000 megawatt (MW) allocated by the Centre (often at the request of the state government) from the generating stations of Central Public Sector Undertakings and about 1800 MW from its own generating stations The allocations made by the Centre can theoretically be changed by it but that will mean off-loading expensive power on other states and reallocating less expensive power from them to Delhi Why would any state agree to increase its bulk power cost to help Delhi Thus wriggling out of these allocations is well-nigh impossible In reality the cost of generation from these plants mostly based on coal from Coal India Limited is going to rise further as CIL’s cost of coal is constantly rising The 63 per cent increase in coal freight and recently announced doubling of the clean energy cess will push it up more The only way of better utilising the Rajghat power plant is by shutting it down But it is a small plant (135 MW) and this will not affect power-generation costs materially As for Bawana a gas-based plant given that the availability and price of gas is uncertain the potential for reduction in power costs is also uncertain The third step of setting up a pithead thermal plant based on a coal block to be allocated to Delhi is feasible However the allocation of a block with a tender process to identify the project developer the development of the block setting up of the power plant and commissioning it will take time It will be a minimum of seven-eight years before power starts flowing to Delhi Thus for at least a few years the cost of generation for Delhi will not be reduced Even when the power plant becomes operational it will merely increase Delhi’s quantum of power tied-up adding to its woes unless the state has in the meantime been able to get out of some of its high-cost allocations An area available for efficiency gains in electricity distribution is reduction in aggregate technical and commercial (AT&C) losses which are high in India While the national average AT&C loss in 2012-13 was 25 per cent it varies widely among discoms from 10 per cent to 60 per cent In comparison Delhi has a healthy 18 per cent below the national average and one company’s is as low as 13 per cent Although there is scope for further improvement that will require capital infusion and the gains will be marginal The only option left to bring down electricity bills is via subsidies which is what the AAP government has now done (as it did in its first stint) entailing a whopping burden of Rs 1427 crore at current tariff levels If DERC were to allow two requests for increase in power-procurement costs already pending the amount will be even higher Whether Delhi will be able to sustain such a ballooning subsidy burden is a serious question There are enough examples of discoms getting into serious financial difficulties because of governments not releasing the promised subsidies That brings up the third question: whether Delhi’s consumer tariff is exorbitant If we compare with Mumbai and Kolkata for consumption up to 200 units the Delhi consumer pays (without subsidy) Rs 4 per unit as against Rs 510 in the other two metros For up to 400 units the Delhi consumer pays Rs 543 compared to Rs 605 and Rs 562 in Mumbai and Kolkata respectively In such a situation is an unsustainable subsidy-based reduction in electricity tariff warranted That is the real question to be asked and answered The writer is a former Union power secretary For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Neelkanth Mishra | Published: March 2 2016 12:28 am States spend substantially more than the Central government But there is limited attention paid by the media and even analysts Related News Some are calling this a political budget But that’s like blaming a businessman for focusing on profits — what he does to generate the profits should be judged not the desire for profits In a similar vein an elected government targeting votes is stating the obvious — they need to be judged on how they go about it If they go about their vote-seeking without creating medium- to long-term impediments to economic growth (my remit is purely the economic) the efforts should be lauded In the run-up to the budget there seemed to be a temptation in some sections of the government to further push out the fiscal consolidation It’s not hard to imagine the arguments favouring that — it’s not enough being the fastest-growing economy in the world and the political necessity is absolute growth that creates jobs; in fact to offset the drag from a slower global economy the government ought to do more Further the three critical risks of a higher fiscal deficit — higher inflation higher interest rates and a weaker currency — could all be offset by global trends Most large economies are struggling with deflationary risks negative interest rates and widespread devaluation of fiat currencies This may have worked but not before creating macroeconomic turbulence Foreign investors in Indian bonds are the bond market equivalent of adventurers: The outstanding amount of Indian bonds that foreigners can buy is not large enough for India to be part of any major bond indices So there is no necessity for these investors to be in India — the ones who are invested in India are attracted by the good yields and macroeconomic stability A whiff of potential instability and these investors could stampede out putting in motion a scenario not unlike (though perhaps not as severe as) what happened in the summer of 2013 The discourse on India would quickly change to almost forgotten debates like if the country has sufficient currency reserves or do rates need to be hiked Bond markets were already starting to get jittery in the run-up to the budget That the government chose to stick to the fiscal consolidation roadmap obviates this period of instability This episode highlights India’s institutional strength The government by definition (given that it needs to be re-elected) would want to spend more; but the RBI playing its role in the economy stood its ground in demanding fiscal prudence This balancing interplay of institutions is a structural positive for India irrespective of whether the RBI follows through with a rate cut or not By sticking to the word it gave earlier the government boosts its credibility This trust is also bolstered by it being very conservative in its budgetary assumptions It also makes the big uncertainties on the fiscal front dependent on government execution rather than overly aggressive growth or tax estimates that are harder to debate There are four major fronts on which there is risk of slippage: An inadequate provision for the pay commission recommendations (the jump in salaries and pensions is provided for but not the increase in allowances) no increase in the amount set aside for recapitalisation of PSU banks a clearly optimistic assessment of proceeds from telecom spectrum sales and a persistence with the strategic disinvestment figure despite repeated disappointments in prior years Put together these can add up to nearly Rs 90000 crore in our estimate At the same time we also believe overly cautious tax receipt projections have created a significant buffer that can offset slippage on some or all of these fronts Proceeds from the tax amnesty scheme currently not accounted for in the budget should also support the achievement of the 35 per cent target The reliance on extra budgetary resources to continue its investment in (mainly) roads and railways is also a prudent choice These heads of expenditure have a high fiscal multiplier — that is according to separate RBI and NIPFP studies for every rupee spent on these nearly Rs 2 gets added to the country’s output in the very first year The government has chosen to fund these through direct fund raising for roads and railways rather than through general government borrowing This has two advantages: First investors are more likely to provide funds for specific productivity-boosting investments backed by real assets than for general government borrowing that can potentially be frittered away Second a higher headline fiscal deficit pushes up bond yields throughout the economy and thus raises the cost of borrowing for more than just the government On other fronts there are several steps taken that seem retrograde or half-hearted — the dividend distribution tax on recipients of dividends for example is effectively triple-taxation even if it’s politically hard to oppose The much-needed boost to housing one of the key self-imposed targets for the government also seems inadequate and tentative This is even as encouragingly deadlines for other targets on electrification and all-weather road connectivity for villages have been pulled forward The non-fiscal measures taken to simplify tax administration in attempting to reduce the discretion available to tax officers (by reducing the upfront penalty that needs to be paid from 50 per cent to 15 per cent) or the set-up of new benches to speed-up tax dispute resolution seem minor but can have a meaningful impact in the day-to-day lives of businesses At the risk of sounding like a broken record the importance of the Union budget for the economy has fallen meaningfully in the past two decades In addition to the growing role of the private sector the amount of funds and the discretion available to state governments have risen as well Put together they now spend substantially more than the Central government But there is limited attention paid by the media and even analysts — note the surprise in the bond markets — when state governments’ fourth-quarter borrowing schedule was finalised

leaving the simple ones in the past.(RFE) option that the regulators are spewing out with gusto.Although RFE sounds benign it invariably delays application processing for weeks or months on end File image of Suresh Prabhu AFP Cyrus Mehta top immigration attorney based in New York says the RFE is a smokescreen for the unstated but obvious resistance to immigration in general and H1B as a favourite whipping boy – “It is not a surprise that when the Administration does not favor a particular visa the RFE rate increases” Going by all that we know of the H1B’s tortuous existence in the nearly 365 days since the Trump win last November the twin themes of increased scrutiny and outrage against outsiders have both made the H1B journey particularly hard notwithstanding the many high powered India-US engagements so far or the impending Ivanka Trump visit to India Mehta explains the various layers in which the H1B is getting cooked: “The current trend in RFEs on H-1B visas do not just challenge the Level 1 wage but also whether the position qualifies as a speciality occupation The RFE also questions the beneficiary’s maintenance of F-1 status under Curricular Practical Training challenging whether the CPT constituted an integral part of the program At times evidence is also requested to establish that the company is doing business as stated in the H-1B petition Many RFEs also challenge the employer-employee relationship under the Neufeld Memo Even if the H-1B worker is not working at a client site the RFE still asks for proof that there is sufficient work to employ the H-1B worker in the specialty occupation at the employer’s place of business Although there has been a general upswing in the issuance of RFEs H-1Bs appear to be getting hit the hardest” Apart from the bucket list that Mehta lays out there’s also a parallel ongoing streamlining process within the multiple arms of government that police the H1B visa Early this year the USCIS put out a comprehensive memo that explained in painstaking detail the many meanings and non meanings of speciality occupation This memo came out in the time gap after Trump took over and before he signed the Buy American Hire American executive order that called for a sweeping review of the H1B visa This memo is important because it underpins the basis of many extra queries that are now going out The bulk of requests for evidence that are spewing out relate more to entry level wage workers rather than any other single group Although entry level is self explanatory to some extent this is how the US Department of Labor defines it: “Level I (entry) wage rates are assigned to job offers for beginning level employees who have only a basic understanding of the occupation These employees perform routine tasks that require limited if any exercise of judgment The tasks provide experience and familiarization with the employer’s methods practices and programs The employees may perform higher level work for training and developmental purposes These employees work under close supervision and receive specific instructions on required tasks and results expected Their work is closely monitored and reviewed for accuracy Statements that the job offer is for a research fellow a worker in training or an internship are indicators that a Level I wage should be considered” This memo rescinded an earlier memo which is clearly outdated in the current scenario This paragraph explains the thinking: “While the (earlier) memorandum stated that most programmers had a bachelor’s degree or higher based on information provided by the Handbook that information is not particularly relevant to a specialty occupation adjudication if it does not also provide the specific specialties the degrees were in and/or what if any relevance those degrees had to the computer programmer occupation Further the memorandum failed to mention that only “some” of those that had a bachelor’s or higher degree at that time held a degree in “computer science or information systems” A Reuters report says that this pushback “which can slow down the issuance of visas by months were issued at a greater rate in 2017 than at any time in the Obama administration except for one year 2009 according to USCIS data” Overall if you see this from the Trump administration side the H1B visa is being beaten into shape even without complicated legislative process Since 1990 when the Immigration Act was signed into law by Gorge HW Bush till date the gripes on the H1B have been bilateral so that’s not new What’s remarkable in the first one year of Trump is the how well coordinated the backlash has been from multiple arms of the government against this most highly regulated work visa in the United States Indians bite off the lion’s share of H1B visas and the relentless scrutiny this year has sent H1B workers scrambling to immigration attorneys in droves Until now general counsels of most companies dealt with H1B issues as a matter of routine Not any more The H1B ‘speciality worker’ is now being subjected to a special kind of onslaught By: PTI | Mumbai | Published: November 17 2015 3:38 pm Oscar-winning
