The Rumor Returns: Mubarak is Critical. Or Is He?

The internet is buzzing again today about Mubarak's declining health after he cancelled a meeting with Palestinian Authority PM Ahmad Quraia. No reason was given for the cancellation. Sounds bad.

However the Jerusalem Post says the meeting was cancelled because Quraia did not bring any new ideas "regarding Egypt's demands for major reforms
in the Palestinian security forces."

"Mubarak's decision to boycott Qurei reflects the mounting tensions between Egypt and the PA."

Still, Mubarak had to go on TV last night to prove he was alive. Would he cancel this meeting just to piss off the PA? Then again, any chance to jerk Arafat's chain might be worth it.
