Israel dismisses report of helping Mubarak's tottering regime

An Egyptian journalist working for Qatari news agency al Jazeera reported that two Israeli planes had landed in Cairo with the requested armament on board.In a statement, the Israeli Foreign Ministry rejected the claim, saying, "the report is totally false".

Sources at the ministry told Ynetnews that al-Jazeera and other networks intent on hurting the Egyptian government are fabricating reports that Israel is helping to quash the uprising.
Israel's Nobel laureate President, Shimon Peres, in his remarks on the uprising in Egypt said that "no matter what they say, we owe Mubarak true thanks for always being a rock and working for peace and stability in the Middle East", the news portal reported.

Six foreign journalists of al-Jazeera channel were today arrested in Egypt after authorities shutdown the network that has provided round-the-clock coverage to the uprising against the 30-year authoritarian rule of Mubarak.

The pan-Arab broadcaster Al-Jazeera said that six of its journalists have been detained from a hotel in Cairo after authorities ordered the closure of the network's local office yesterday.

In Egypt, protesters gave a call for a million people to pour onto the streets of Cairo tomorrow to put up a massive show of strength to force the beleaguered President to leave the country by Friday.

Upping the ante to topple Mubarak, a coalition of opposition parties, including the outlawed Muslim Brotherhood also served an ultimatum telling the powerful army to choose between "Egypt or Mubarak", indicating that a decisive stage may be near as the death toll in the last six days of violence crossed 150.

Anti- Mubarak sentiments reached a feverish pitch, as thousands of protesters converged on Tahrir or Liberation Square -- the hub of the protests in the heart of Cairo to make the call for a "million man march" tomorrow.
