The page “January 25, the day of a revolution against torture, poverty, corruption and unemployed,” was hacked by a group who call themselves the Sons of Mubarak.

The group said, “We, the children of Mubarak, are coming. We are the sons of this honourable nation, who love their country and we will carry your pictures, President, on all the Internet pages and all the streets because we are the ones who are loyal.”

The group also wrote, “The anger of the sons of Mubarak has begun; it will be an electronic war.”

The hackers replaced all the photos on the page with images of Mubarak and scrawled support messages to the ousted president on them.

“It is not hard to sacrifice for a nation that you love," the group wrote, addressing Mubarak. “But it is hard to find a nation that is worth sacrificing for.”

I appreciate the comments of the two people above but I still support the President. I have been aware of the President for some time and have read about his career, etc, etc, etc. I know he has brought peace and stability to Egypt for many years. What we are seeing now is mob rule. The demonstrators have only to demand something and they get it right away and the military and Interim Government seem afraid of them. How would the President get a fair trial from people like that? Is this constant hounding of the President the way to step forward and bring about the new modern, 21st century Egypt that the uprising was supposed to achieve? As for Ruth's comments about N. Ireland she is living in the past there too. There is a very successful Government here of the members of both communities and long may it continue. The ordinary decent people of Northern Ireland, of whatever creed or not, are working for the good of the Province. Long may it continue and hopefully the President will

Dear lady from Northern Ireland,
I absolutely don't understand why would someone from Northern Ireland support a tyrant who they don't know anything about. I sincerely do hope that you really don't know anything about his history in dictatorship & abuse,because if you do know, then we can only add int'l slavery to his list of "accomplishments". This isn't about freedom of opinion,as by doing this you're supporting a murderer,you're nothing different from Hitler supporters. Yours,the free people of Egypt

Pro-Mubarak hackers
Hacking a facebook page is relatively harmless compared to what the pro-Mubarak thugs are doing on the streets. Diana, your point is what exactly? You live in NI and yet you support a brutal dictator? But perhaps you are one of the Protestant minority intent on ruling a Catholic majority by force! I have lived in Egypt since the days of Sadat and know many who have been detained and tortured for daring to speak out against the corruption and violence of the former regime. There is a counter revolution and the "sons of mubarak" are one of many faces of those who, for whatever personal gains,feel that dignity welfare and freedom are not for the Egyptian masses but only for the corrupt members of Mubarak's clique.

Facebook Mubarak supporters
So some Mubarak supporters have hacked into a page which is against Mr Mubarak? No one mentioned the time that an individual tried to destroy a page supported by Mubarak supporters? THIS was never highlighted in the press. I went to the page to contribute to it as usual, as I support Mr Mubarak and what did I find - reams, reams and reams of filthy images, one after the other going down the page. It was impossible to do anything on it or even to read it - just all this dirt. I am from Northern Ireland and was not impressed. I even went into the page of this ignorant person but was unable to leave a comment. What would I do? Yes, I reported the filth to Facebook saying that this was insulting, etc and yes, yes, within five minutes it was all removed and the page was saved. One of the organisers of our page apologised that the page had been closed for some time because of this and was going to report this to the police. I am quite happy for people of differing views being able to c
