Today in Tablet Magazine, Daniella Cheslow talks to Eli Shaked, Israel’s former ambassador to Egypt, about the once and maybe not-future president of Egypt, Hosni Mubarak. “It’s pathetic and I pity him,” Shaked says.

But he’s either stubborn or stupid, and it’s impossible to convince him what to do. And there is also the problem of to whom to you pass the government, what do you do? How do you assure that the leadership will be passed in an orderly fashion? Let’s say to another general? Even among all the millions who are going wild there, they don’t have a leader who will replace Mubarak tomorrow morning.

Mubarak, Alone
