  • According to Angry Arab, state-owned Egyptian daily al-Ahram photoshopped a picture of Obama and the other Middle East leaders in the White House to show Mubarak in the front of the group.

    Photo as the Associated Press reported.

    This brings to mind a wonderful piece by Zenobia of Egyptian Chronicles on "The Old Man of the Middle East".

    I am loving how people read this in the newspapers, some laugh, other get angry..and then we turn the page to see something "more important"!

    I can't really get it, does a picture of a leader ahead or not mean anything anymore? would we feel "better" seeing him in the middle leading others??
    I have big doubts!
