Mohamed ElBaradei (Muslim Brotherhood) Says Mubarak Needs To Go ~ Obama Likes Him

(Reuters) - Egyptian opposition forces have agreed to support opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei to negotiate with the government, a leading member of the Muslim Brotherhood said Sunday.

Elbaradei Says Egyptian People have Revolted; Mubarak Needs to Go

Egyptian opposition figure Mohamed ElBaradei saying that the “Egyptian people have revolted” against Hosni Mubarak, and that he does not believe the protests will subside. ElBaradei said that in his view, “Mubarak needs to go.”

Mohamed ElBaradei, who has emerged as one of the leading opponents of the regime of President Hosni Mubarak of Egypt, said Sunday that President Obama needed to press Mubarak to give up power and that failing to take more forceful action to make that happen will cost the United States "whatever is left" of its credibility.

"People expected the U.S. to be on the side of the people ... and to let go of a dictator, " ElBaradei said on ABC's "This Week."

ElBaradei said the response of Mubarak so far to the protests and calls for reform by the United States "doesn't even begin to address people's concerns. Peoples' concerns right now is Mubarak has to go, immediately. The first step, if we need to get out of this mess -- and it's total mess, security is not there, it's a total chaos situation right now -- first step, he has to go."

Mohammed El Baradei — self-annointed “leader of the Egyptian opposition” — has more in common with Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad than anything remotely resembling democracy. El Baradei is financially backed by Iran.

Soros's Internationial Crisis Group's Board of Trustees shows ElBaradei's name on the list as one of their group.

An article at The Corner by By Andrew C. McCarthy has something to say about this jerk too;

According to ElBaradei, the Brothers “have not committed any acts of violence in five decades.” [ACM note: the Brotherhood killed Sadat in 1981; Hamas kills people everyday.] ElBaradei, who also admires President Obama ardently, said that the Brothers just “want change.” Thus, he concludes, “If we want democracy and freedom, we have to include them instead of marginalizing them.” [ACM: Yeah, just like we did with Hamas — and how’s that workin’ out?]

For its part, the Obama administration — which has made outreach to the Muslim Brotherhood and its American affiliates a policy priority — reciprocates ElBaradei’s admiration.

Robert Gibbs said Friday that the president knows ElBaradei well and has worked closely with him.

By the way, ElBaradei also says “Israel is the number one threat to the Middle East,” and has expressed strong support for the Palestinian “resistance,” particularly in Hamas-controlled Gaza (which he calls “the world’s largest prison”), because, in his opinion, “the Israeli occupation only understands the language of violence.”


Wild Thing's comment.......

El Baradei is fully supported by Iran.....He is worse than scum...he IS bad news. He is tied so tightly with Muslem Brotherhood and he is also backed by the Muslim Brotherhood.

He spent the last 12 years helping Iran stall as they developed nuclear weapons.

Egypt has best be very careful what it wishes for. And Israel had better be sleeping with both eyes wide open.

I have just seen numerous reports of a leading Iman there warning Israel to prepare for war.
And one would be shocked by this? I repeat! This appears to be the lion going after the wounded prey!
Could all the turmoil we are seeing in Muslim countries be an offshoot of perceived weakness on the part of the United States and her allies! I for one have always felt this President is firmly on the side of the Muslim world as a whole. Certainly he is the most antagonistic President as in his stance on Israel I have ever seen. This new Iranian poster boy feels the President WILL NOT do anything other than to warn Israel to stand back and let the events take their course.
As we now are at the point in which we have elected officials telling the Muslim world this country is full of racist hate and an administration that in almost every stance is extremely ” Anti-American ideals” why should one be surprised that these radical Muslim Fundamentalists are taking their shots now? After all, this is the administration that just the other day as an example declared the Egyptian government was stable. No surprise from the blind mice running the show in D.C. now is it?
It is my understanding Iran is ecstatic about the coming regime change in Egypt. If so, what does this do to the region? It in fact puts another knife at Israel’s throat along with another one aimed squarely at the U.S. which we know for sure will threaten oil supplies and therefore raise oil prices thus causing more economic problems.
And for one to be “surprised that the Anti-Israel rhetoric has started to emanate from the Egyptian protesters only shows how far up their rears this administration and the apologists for the Radical Muslims have their heads stuck! Combine that with El Baradei, another poster boy from Iran and one has to expect the worst case scenario.
One can agree that this has been something that has been festering in Egypt for quite sometime. However, as we have learned with the failed feel good Socialist policies being shoved down out throats here, there is always the law of unintended consequences. One feels in this case, the consequences can and will be disastrous.

I never followed El Baradei very closely. I thought of him as just another bumbling UN oaf. The real picture that is emerging is pretty scary. Even if he does look like Mr. Potato Head. Iran already has a strategic position on the Gulf, they could have a de facto position on the Suez as well. Think of it this way. You are Ahmedinejad. Egypt falls into your lap and you know Obama will be gone in two years. Is now the time to take on Israel?
This is really bad stuff. Israel under direct threat and the world's economic lifeblood, oil, held ransom. I miss George Bush.

Islamic law and governance is ideally suited to step into vacuums where no organizations are ready. Authoritarian systems are very good at establishing stability in a short period of time.

Israel and the United States are going to pay for this one. We just may have a very real, new enemy. It will take some time, but the regional war is taking a step closer. All they are waiting for is capability.
