Husni Mubarak in Qatar
Husni Mubarak visited Doha, Qatar after years of a feud between the two rulers. (Of course, Mubarak stopped in Abu Dhabi first: the Emir of Qatar told me that Mubarak receives a blank check from the ruler of UAE in every visit--a blank check, literally). Mubarak wants to make up with Qatar during the "elections" because he worries about AlJazeera coverage. Unfortunately, his plan will work: Aljazeera's coverage softened greatly after the rapprochement between Saudi Arabia and Qatar. Arab rulers can make up while sharpening knives behind the curtain.
