El-Baradei has a long history with the Muslim Brotherhood

Indeed. I guess that’s what makes him a ‘moderate’ in the eyes of liberal progressives. Only Yasser Arafartbastard  and Hussein Obama would be more deserving of a Nobel Peace Price……..

The Daily Beast reported:

Egypt’s new opposition leader, former International Atomic Energy Agency head Mohamed ElBaradei, has formed a loose alliance with the Brotherhood because he knows it is the only opposition group that can mobilize masses of Egyptians, especially the poor. He says he can work with it to change Egypt. Many scholars of political Islam also judge the Brotherhood is the most reasonable face of Islamic politics in the Arab world today. Skeptics fear ElBaradei will be swept along by more radical forces.

Stunner. Muslim Brotherhood Announces They Will Support El-Baradei

The radical Muslim Brotherhood announced moments ago that they will support Mohamed ElBaradei to negotiate with the government.   Reuters reported (via GWP)

Mohamed Elbaradei, the former head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, has urged Hosni Mubarak, Egypt’s president, to step down.

Speaking to Al Jazeera, Elbaradei said the nation will collapse if Mubarak stays. (As far as I know, it has already collapsed, long ago….)

He said Egypt needs an enitrely different system of governance after 30 years of Mubarak-led rule.

Freedom in Egypt means also freedom for  radical headbangers


Be careful of what we wish for if Egypt gets more democracy – for one election….

STRATFOR warns that the Muslim Brotherhood senses its opportunity…..

Muslim Brotherhood, ElBaradei in talks to form post-Mubarak govt in Egypt

Such a government would be the first step toward an Islamic state in Egypt. “Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood eyes unity gov’t without Mubarak,” from Haaretz, January 30 (thanks to JW):

    says it all.

    So all that talk of democratic reformers bringing about freedom etc has turned out as predicted by us, to be BS of the first water. Oh yes democracy but democracy to bring sharia as wished for by 70 to 80% of Egyptians. If one takes out 10% of Copts, this figure increases 80-90% for Sharia.

    This is a consequence of Obama making America a weak nation, unwilling to defend its own interests. Its Carter and Iran all over again.
