Whats going on?
Mohammed Morsi is Sentenced to Death : http://www.aljazeera.com/news/2015/05/egypt-sentences-mohammed-morsi-dea...
The court ruled on Saturday that the sentencing of Morsi and 105 others will be referred to the grand mufti, the highest religious authority in Egypt, for confirmation.
Many of those sentenced were tried in absentia. The court will pronounce its final decision on June 2.
Mohamed Soudan, a senior member of the Muslim Brotherhood, told Al Jazeera the decision was "farcical".
"They're insisting on issuing these verdicts against anyone who participated in the January 25 Revolution ... all of the verdicts fail to meet international standards of law ... they are farcical and will be dismissed as a failing of the coup," said Soudan, who fled Egypt for the UK after Morsi's overthrow.
Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan criticised Egypt over the decision and accused the West of hypocrisy, according to the state-run Anatolian news agency.
"While the West is abolishing the death penalty, they are just watching the continuation of death sentences in Egypt. They don't do anything about it," Erdogan was quoted as saying.
Human rights group Amnesty International said the trial was a "charade" and based on "void procedures".
"Condemning Mohamed Morsi to death after more grossly unfair trials shows a complete disregard for human rights ... he was held for months incommunicado without judicial oversight and that he didn't have a lawyer to represent him," the organisation said in a statement."

Mubarak - What did he do? see here: http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContentP/4/118321/Opinion/Catastrophes-M...
"The despotic regime that the people revolted against was not protected except by a police apparatus that practised detention, torture, and abuse against the defenceless. Mubarak's regime did all it could to suppress the revolution, by teargas, bullets and bloodshed"
"Three decades of corruption and wastage of what previous generations and governments had built — lost through horrifically corrupt privatisation deals — are nothing but illustrative of the true nature of the Mubarak regime. That regime transformed gradually into a corrupt order that crushed and drained Egypt and pushed it towards regional and international marginalisation. Social injustice, which resulted in fields of wretchedness, poverty, slum areas, marginalised and street children, was not a false claim against the Mubarak regime. Laxity and miserably low rates of savings and investment and subsequent huge increases in the number of unemployed who suffered from being deprived of earning their livelihood with dignity were but some of the manifestations of the catastrophes of Mubarak's rule and the influence of the evil entourage that surrounded him like a ring of fire.
The blatant and flagrant corruption in the granting of lands allotted for agricultural and industrial development at ludicrous prices and with minimal fees to cronies and hardened corruption figures, and allowing them to sell it for enormous sums, for the sake of crooked profiteering, came at the expense of Egypt and its people."
Whats it got to do with us? - Dont' know. But its important. The repercussions of the death of the first democratically elected leader of Egypt together with the resurgence of the political rise of the Mubaraks could eventually hit home.
