Mohamed ElBaredei Steps Out Of His Sheep’s Clothing

Mohamed ElBaradei is one of those figures who, because he is fairly westernized, easily manipulates western media and left-of-center bloggers and pundits into thinking he wants a western-style democracy in Egypt.

It is not surprising that despite his obvious opportunism, ElBaradei has become something of a hero to those in the West opposed to Mubarek.

But anyone who was familiar with ElBaradei recognized him for what he was, a stalking horse for the Muslim Brotherhood.  And now it is official:

Earlier Sunday, the Muslim Brotherhood threw its support behind ElBaradei to hold proposed negotiations with the government in order to form a new unity government.

Speaking to Al-Jazeera, Muslim Brotherhood official Essam el-Eryan said that “political groups support ElBaradei to negotiation with the regime.”

ElBaradei, in an interview aired on CNN Sunday, said that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak must leave the country immediately.

“It is loud and clear from everybody in Egypt that Mubarak has to leave today, and it is non-negotiable for every Egyptian.” he said. He added that it should “be followed by a smooth transition [to] a national unity government to be followed by all the measures set in place for a free and fair election.”

A “national unity government.”  That’s exactly what happened when the Shah left Iran, only to have the Islamists take advantage of the power vacuum.  And it’s what happened in Lebanon until Hezbollah pulled out and collapsed the government recently.  And in Gaza between Hamas and the Palestinian Authority, until Hamas seized full control of Gaza.

ElBaredei is a wolf in sheep’s clothing, and so would be a national unity government.

Eqypt may need Mubarek gone, but it does not need a facade of unity which will be used by the Muslim Brotherhood to consolidate power…

Related: In our discussions today about the news from Egypt, we wondered why el Baredei, in his capacity as chief inspector for the U.N.’s IAEA, would tell the world the Iranians had no nukes, when they certainly do. We remembered the $7 million dollar pay-off. But still…something was missing.

Our Wordboss did some sleuthing and came up with this old entry at Free Republic, Mohamed El Baradei has an Iranian wife?

Perhaps it was just a little “Pillow Talk” with his Iranian wife!

Who is Dr. Mohamed El Baradei? A quick Google search yields the following general biographical information:

Dr. ElBaradei is the director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA], an inter-governmental organization based in Vienna, and formed under the auspices of the United Nations in 1957. He was appointed to the office effective Dec. 1 1997, and re-appointed to a second term in Sept. 2001. El Baradi was born in Egypt in 1942. He gained a Bachelor’s degree in Law in 1962 at the University of Cairo, and a Doctorate in International Law at the New York University School of Law in 1974. He began his career in the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in 1964, serving on two occasions in the Permanent Missions of Egypt to the UN in New York and Geneva. In 1980 he became a senior fellow in charge of the International Law Program at the United Nations Institute for Training and Research. He was also an Adjunct Professor of Law at the New York University School of Law.

Dr. El Baradei is married to Aida Elkachef, a kindergarden teacher at the Vienna International School. They have a daughter, Laila, a lawyer, and a son, Mostafa, a sound engineer, both of whom live and work in London, England. But perhaps the most telling information about the good doctor is found at the Italian website, [NOTE: You must use search words “Alberadi il Presidente di AIEA,” for the Google search to bring back a hit on this site. If you can’t read Italian, Google will translate the site into English.]

This site describes El Baradi’s wife as an Iranian, and a first cousin of Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani, one of the “brains” of the Iranian regime and close associate of the tyrant Khomenei. In the article by Dr. Kameran Pirnia, he states “…Baradei cannot be neutral toward Iran” because of his wife relationship to Mahdavi Kani. A further Google search reveals that Mahdavi Kani heads up the Iranian Militant Clerics Association, one of the main political groups in Iran’s Theo-Nazi government.

Alberadi il Presidente di AIEA è sposata con una iraniana parente di Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani uno dei cervelli del regime iraniano e molto vicino a Khamenei il tiranno.

Scrive il Dott. Kameran Pirnia, un iraniano meravigliato dal atteggiamento accondiscendente di Presidente di AIEA con il regime teo-nazista iraniano e si spiega la ragione nella parentela della moglie di Alberadei con Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani. Precisamente sua moglie iraniana è cugina di primo grado del ayatollah potente. Il dottore chiede se non siamo in classico caso dell’influenza femminile nei affari degli stati e se per il merito della cugina che Alberadei è cosi scrupoloso nei confronti dell’Iran quando si tratta di confermare le accuse.

Comunque Albradei non può essere imparziale nei confronti dell’Iran.

Alberada President of the IAEA is married to an Iranian
Ayatollah Mahdavi Kani relative of one of the brains of
Iranian regime is very close to Khamenei, the tyrant.

Writes Dr. Kameran Pirna, surprised by an Iranian
condescending attitude of the President of the IAEA
theo-Nazi regime of Iran and the reason is explained in
relationship with the wife of Alberadei Ayatollah Mahdavi
Kani. Precisely his wife’s cousin is the first Iranian
capable of powerful ayatollah. The doctor asks if we are not
in a classic case of the influence of women in business
states and if the substance of the cousin who is so Alberadei
scrupulous against Iran when it comes to
confirm the charges.

However Albradei can not be equitable Iran.

Ungrammatical. But you get the picture.

Update: Video at Weasel Zippers, Mohamed ElBaradei: “Muslim Brotherhood threat is a myth pushed by dictatorial regime”… Zip correctly recalls, “I vaguely remember ElBaradei saying the same thing abut Iran’s nuke program.”

Another video at WZ, CNN Anchor Heaps Praise on the Muslim Brotherhood…

Motto of the Muslim Brotherhood – Allah is our objective. – The Prophet is our leader. – Qur’an is our law. – Jihad is our way.

“I’m asking about the Muslim Brotherhood, the organization that has tirelessly, and in many cases quite courageously, campaigned in elections, it has campaigned against the government, it has campaigned on behalf of the poor in Egypt. It has a long, long history in that country. What role should it have now?”
