El Baradei Positioning Himself as Potential Replacement to Mubarak

It seems likely that Mubarak will be forced out of power, and that we will not have to wait long to see that happen. The question then becomes who replaces him. The two choices are the pro-western democratic forces or the Islamic Muslim Brotherhood. I think it is pretty obvious which side I am in favor of, it may be less clear where El Baradei will fall.


"An Egyptian government in which the key players are the Muslim Brotherhood and El Baradei would be a terrible development for us; for Egypt, perhaps a catastrophic one. Some are now arguing that the MB is a relatively benign force to which we should not be opposed. Andy McCarthy explains in detail why we should fear the Muslim Brotherhood--the organization that has spawned most of today's terrorist groups--but really, all you need to know is the Brotherhood's motto:

Allah is our objective, the Prophet is our leader, the Koran is our law, Jihad is our way, and dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope. Allahu akbar!

That pretty well sums it up.

El Baradei, meanwhile, has a long history of anti-American activism. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, which is often repeated in the press as though it were a good thing. As is so often the case in recent years, El Baradei's prize was a reward for sticking his finger in America's eye
