    That the news about Mubarak's early demise were exaggerated is quite clear. The news that he was to be leaving on Tuesday (yesterday) for a 10 day period for treatment in Germany are clearly incorrect. Not only is he still in Egypt, but he has a scheduled appointment this Sunday with Abbas, and this is the same day where his appointment with Netanyahu was to take place. So the cancellation of the appointment with Netanyahu, rather than the one with Abbas, cannot depend on health reasons. If Mubarak had to reduce his workload due to health problems, he would have cancelled the Abbas meeting, not Netanyahu's, since the latter was already delayed before. Apparently, the reason given by the Egyptians about their unhappiness with house demolitions in Jerusalem, should be taken at face value. But try to convey this message against the netanyahu spin machine. Mubarak has no better chance than Don Quixote had fighting the windmill!
