Frankly, who knows what the impact of this development will be. At this point we can only speculate.
But in July 2010, the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting website broke the story that Mubarak had died. In 2004. During a cancer operation in Germany.
Mubarak was replaced by a doppelganger, and through him, Egypt has been run by a triumverate of the US, Israel and Germany. Apparently, the sad news was initially broadcast by “Radio Monte Carlo, BBC and the Israeli radio”. However, since then, they have suppressed the truth.
In other news: a very similar thing happened to Paul McCartney.
