To be fair, not getting involved doesn't necassarily indicate support.

Perhaps he knows something about the "dissidents" that our government doesn't.  Actually, that is pretty certain.

I would also support Mubarak.

The Muslim Brotherhood was kept in check with him in power. Now, things will get worse for Egypt.

He did get involved by offering his message which is repeat broadcast as a public service announcment on Egyptian state television advocating calm and refusing himself in getting involved in the protests.

Besides, he's already supported Mubarek before.

This particular situation echos the Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople's admonition against joining in the Greek War of Independence in his Fatherly Instructions.
