Egypt Deserves Better Than Mohamed ElBaradei.

Posted on the 03 February 2011 by Igoudiaby

Egypt deserves better than Mohamed ElBaradei.Mohamed ElBaradei spent most of his adult life outside of Egypt, yet he is being propped up by the media as a potential replacement to Hosni Mubarak.

He is 68 and recently retired from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which he headed for twelve years (Dec. 1997 to Nov. 2009). Little is being said about the fact that candidacies at the head of organizations like the IAEA are submitted by member states who usually lobby the other member states to get their candidate elected.

So Mohamed ElBaradei is a product of the regime that he’s speaking against today and cannot in any way be a viable alternative to Hosni Mubarak.

Why is the media so dismissive of the Egyptian opposition, which suffered the most brutal crackdowns trying to bring change in the country? It is their time to lead and up to the Egyptian people to choose their president.

I have written on this subject an article first published as Egypt: ElBaradei Can Be a Temporary Fix, Not the Solution on Technorati that you can read by clicking here.
