I am surprised from this positive response from Israel and the west towards the expiry of this awful law. Despite knowing about the continuous violation of human rights in Egypt during Mubarak's rule, the west and Israel did not criticize any of these actions. On the contrary, they provided him with support to torture and kill his own people. To me, Mubarak has been exactly like Saddam; a tyrant with 2 sons who are controlling politics and economy of the whole country. The only difference was the support from the west and Israel or lack of it!!
