In a rare talk, Egypt’s ousted president Hosni Mubarak said on Sunday that there are "fateful decisions" that need to be taken by current president Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi and that Egyptians should stand behind him.

Mubarak, who was ousted on 11 Feburary 2011 following an 18-day uprising, spoke briefly on the phone with TV host Ahmed Moussa on Sada El-Balad private TV channel in commemoration of the 33rd anniversary of the liberation of Sinai.

Mubarak reiterated that the army, headed by President Sisi, clearly "understands the sanctity of the national territory".

The 86-year-old former autocrat spoke about his memories of exuding Israeli forces from Sinai, saying Israel was “scheming” to buy more time and stay in Sinai but that he turned down theses attempts.  

"The future of nations can only be fulfilled by sacrifice, and that his generation sacrificed to liberate the Egyptian land," he added.

Following his ouster, Mubarak was detained pending trial in a number of cases and spent the majority of his detainment in Cairo's Maadi military Hospital, where he remains.

He is currently being retried for embezzlement of public funds originally allocated for developing communications centres in presidential palaces. The money was spent on the his private residences instead, according to prosecutors.

In November 2014, Mubarak had charges of complicity in the killing of protesters in the 2011 uprising dropped. He was also cleared of other corruption charges.

Mr.Mubarak
Notwithstanding his fall from power and despite the imprisonment he suffered Mubarak for all practical purposes is a statesman of outstanding credentials. His advice would always be beneficial to Egypt.

Hands off
Mr. Corruption should be the last one to offer any presidential advice, haven lead Egypt into poverty, illiteracy, and unemployment bottoms. You are not doing President Sisi any favor by publically supporting him, on the contrary, it sounds like a kiss of death. Hand off Mr. Corruption, you had 30 years of chances and you Mubarked it up!

General View over the time
You have to take wider vintage point on Mubarak's ruling. Maybe he didn't bring progress to the country, but he protected it's sovereignty for all those years. He knew who Muslim Brotherhood are and kept them away in jails, where there belong to. We cannot narrow his doings to last years events. He did what he had to do to protect Egypt as a country.

Mubarak is a terrorist
Mubarak is a sickening terrorist who should be convicted of murdering more than 800 protestors in 2011. Onpy ISIS level persons support a mass murderer and torturer like Mubarak.
