Israel's envoy to the peace process supports Mubarak

Tony Blair, for it is he, isn't the first person to see the rising in Egypt through the prism of how it all stands with Israel. Here's The Guardian:
Tony Blair has described Hosni Mubarak, the beleaguered Egyptian leader, as "immensely courageous and a force for good" and warned against a rush to elections that could bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power.

The former prime minister, now an envoy to the Israeli-Palestinian peace process, praised Mubarak over his role in the negotiations and said the west was right to back him despite his authoritarian regime because he had maintained peace with Israel.
But that view is likely to anger many Egyptians who believe they have had to endure decades of dictatorship because the US put Israel's interests ahead of their freedom.
For Lenin at the tomb this means that "Blair must die". I think he is already dead in the water. Surely when the dust settles Egypt can't support the Gaza blockade. Also, if new rulers in Egypt are true to their people will they not have to demand the removal of Blair from the position he should never had held in the first place?
