  2. 2.  Egypt - Short history<br />While best known for its pyramids and ancient civilizations, Egypt has played a central role in Middle East politics in modern times.<br />Its wars with Israel in 1948, 1956, 1967 and 1973, then its eventual peace with its adversary in 1979, have seen Egypt move from being a warring nation to become a key representative in the peace process.<br />Politics: President Hosni Mubarak has been in power since 1981; his strongest challenger has been the Muslim Brotherhood which is tolerated but officially banned<br />Economy: The Egyptian economy is the second largest in the Arab world after Saudi Arabia<br />International: Egypt has been a key ally of the West; it has played a key role in efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict <br />

  4. 4. Hosni Mubarak-history<br />Muhammad Hosni Sayyid Mubarak‎,born 4 May 1928 is a former Egyptian politician and military commander. He served as the fourth President of Egypt from 1981 to 2011.<br />Mubarak was appointed Vice President of Egypt in 1975, and assumed the presidency on 14 October 1981, following the assassination of President Anwar El Sadat.<br />
  5. 5. Hosni Mubarak-policies<br />Hosni Mubarak was a dictator he ruled a state for 30 years and didn't allow others to take power. Elections meant nothing in his time, and since no one had any power to talk against him or challenge him, he became corrupt. Finally the public realized its power inspired by other revolutions they started their revolt against the leader, though earlier small conflicts occurred but Mubarak peacefully stepped down unlike Gaddafi.<br />His internal policies might have been bad, but he wasn't that bad for the world. He was strictly against Islamic militants, and had a good supporting relations with Israel which any Islamic country hardly had. His one of the reason to refuse to come to receive the award in India was that he would be later expected by the Pakistanis to come to Islamabad, being an Islamic nation.<br />Hosni Mubarak has been the target of many attacks by Islamic militants.<br />
