Egypt Burning (Aljazeera – documentary)

Since the 1981 assassination of President Anwar El Sadat, Hosni Mubarak has headed Egypt’s semi-presidential republic government and is the longest serving President in Egypt’s history. Mubarak and his National Democratic Party (NDP) government have maintained one-party rule under a continuous state of emergency. Mubarak’s government earned the support of the West and a continuation of annual aid from the United States by maintaining policies of suppression towardsIslamic militants and peace with Israel. Hosni Mubarak has often been compared to an Egyptianpharaoh by the media and by some of his harsher critics due to his authoritarian rule.
