Ben-Eliezer: PM and I offered Mubarak safe haven in Eilat

August 3, 2011 09:06

MK Binyamin Ben-Eliezer offered former Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak safe haven in Eilat some months ago, the Labor MK told Army Radio in an interview Wednesday morning. He added that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu was a party to the offer.

Mubarak, however, "is a patriot and therefore declined the request," Ben-Eliezer said. "I told him that the distance between Sharm e-Shiekh to Eilat is short, and that I knew he is sick."
