View Full Version : Egyptian President Anwar Sadat Is Not Assainated - What Changes?

The recent and ongoing protests in Egypt set my mind thinking about this one. Would Egypt today be less of a dictatorship as it is effectively under Mubarak? What would the state of Egypt-Israel relations be? and how worried is the Zionist state about current events in Egypt? they most certainly wouldn't want an unstable or a fundamentalist Egypt for sure! Also the Muslim Brotherhood were strongly implicated in taking out Sadat and it has become a focus for state oppression now, so where would it be today without Sadat's bloody demise? Indeed would Mubarak have emerged at all as the successor after a longer Sadat reign?

Sadat wouldn't be that different than Mubarak, but as a civilian rather than a career officer he might not involve the military as much in the economy. Depends when he steps down- he was 63 in 1981, so theoretically he could still be around by 2000. No idea what his succession plans were- Mubarak was VP but again, depends how long Sadat lives.

Mubarak was injured in that assassination, so we in our what if world could have him killed instead with Sadat receiving the hand wound. Sadat did have heart problems , so unfortunately he might not have survived much longer than 1981!
BTW I will spell 'Assassinated' correctly in future!

No idea then. Maybe his son?
