Mubarak Blames Muslim Brotherhood, Is Fed Up But Fears Chaos In Egypt If Leaves
Written by 

What we know about Hosni Mubarak right now is he has said he will not run for re-election, believes the Muslim Brotherhood is responsible for the Egyptian violence, is silent on whether Obama has betrayed him and fears that should he leave Egypt now, Egypt would sink deeper into chaos.

In an interview with Christiane Anapour of ABC, Mubarak said, ““I am fed up. After 62 years in public service, I have had enough. I want to go.”

 

But wanting to go is not going which is what the protestors want now.

In the interview, Mubarak said he had told Obama: "You don't understand the Egyptian culture and what would happen if I step down now."

"If I resign today, there will be chaos," Mubarak further said.  He also said, "I don't care what people say about me. Right now I care about my country."

Despite blaming the Muslim Brotherhood, Vice President Omar Suleiman also said on Thursday the Muslim Brotherhood, has been invited to meet with the new government.  

 

The embattled president said in an interview Thursday that he was ready to leave office, but could not, for fear his country would sink deeper into chaos.

“I am fed up. After 62 years in public service, I have had enough. I want to go,” Mubarak said in an interview at the presidential palace.

 

Amanpour said Mubarak had told her he was troubled by the deadly violence between anti- and pro-government groups in Tahrir Square and that the government was not responsible for it. The president blamed the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood for the violence and said he did not intend to have his son Gamal assume the presidency after him.

He described President Barack Obama as a very good man, but wavered when asked if he felt that the United States had betrayed him, ABC said. Obama has said Mubarak should start the process of a peaceful transition immediately.
