This is in contradiction with what another Egyptian paper reported:
According to Rose al-Yousef, an Egyptian weekly magazine, Mubarak made phone calls to US President Barack Obama, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, head of Mossad Tamir Pardo and several European officials in late February, but none of them offered him any support.So one Egyptian paper says Israel tried to help Mubarak while another says it didn't. Go figure.
When Mubarak, who ruled Egypt for 30 years under direct support of the US and Israel, contacted to talk to Obama his call was disconnected, the report said.
The Egyptian dictator also called Netanyahu by a satellite mobile phone -- with a Saudi-based service provider -- to ask for his assistance, but the Israeli premier said there was nothing he could do about it.
The head of Israel's Mossad also rejected Mubarak's request, citing fears that any interference by Tel Aviv will aggravate anti-Mubarak sentiments.
According to the report, Mubarak contacted Israeli officials every one hour on a certain day, but all his calls were dropped the day after.
Other European leaders, whom Mubarak approached, reportedly gave similar responses, arguing that according to international protocols he was not the president of Egypt anymore.
