Menafeeds | Egypt, Mossad, Zuckerberg

– Issandr el Amrani (The Arabist) | Heroes, or a riff on recent Egypt news | So Mubarak had a gall bladder operation, or at least some sort of operation, and everything is fine and dandy —  well aside from an 81-year-old undergoing an operation is never quite routine. We’ll spare you the indignation that he went abroad, to the Krauts of all people (second operation in Germany), to carry out a supposedly routine operation. It’s not a disparaging attitude towards the fine local military hospitals, it’s concern about whether he can trust his doctor not to have a sudden attack of patriotism.

– Amro Hassan, Ramin Mostaghim (Babylon&Beyond) | EGYPT: Mubarak aims to cool off enthusiasm for Mohamed ElBaradei | Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak’s first public reaction to the political reaction that surrounded Mohamed ElBaradei’s return to Egypt seems to have been a very spontaneous attempt to remind everyone that dramatic political changes in the country are likely to take place in the near future.

– As’ad AbuKhalil (Al Jazeera) | Mossad: Might or myth? | The assassination of Mahmoud Mabhouh, a Hamas commander, in Dubai is a watershed moment in the long history of the Mossad. Israeli officials who ordered the assassination did something that Zionists have always done – underestimate their Arab opponents. In his first impressions of Arabs, David Ben-Gurion, the first Israeli prime minister, compared them to children.

– [And, on a completely unrelated note: la storia di Facebook appare sempre meno chiara] Nicholas Carson (Business Insider) | In 2004, Mark Zuckerberg Broke Into A Facebook User’s Private Email Account | This is the story of how, in 2004, Mark Zuckerberg hacked into the email accounts of two Harvard Crimson reporters using data obtained from’s logs. The details are drawn from a broader investigation of the origins of Facebook, the sourcing of which is described here.
