The chief of the UN’s nuclear watchdog, Mohammed El Baradei, left his comfortable tax-free, lifestyle in Vienna last week to fly to Egypt and present himself as a leader of the opposition days after a huge demonstration threatened to sweep away the country’s dictator, propped up by a US-financed army.
But in spite of placing himself dramatically under house arrest – just who arrested him was never clear if he ever was arrested – ElBaradei is failing to gain traction among Egyptions: they have barely have heard of his acts of oppostion and have no idea what he stands for, reports Austrian media.
Promoted by the western media, including Al Jazeera, as a key opposition figure in, he appeared today at a rally in central Cairo together with the extremist, false flag“ Muslim Brotherhood“ – whose website was the only one not shut down during the recent internet ban – claiming to have a mandate to negiotiate for the people.
But no one paid attention to him, according to reports.
It looks like a stooge government made up of Mubarak, ElBaradei and the Muslim Brotherhood is preparing to take power, presenting themselves as a government of national reconciliation but that the people of Egypt are not being fooled.
