As you may know our favorite Ibrahim Eissa have a daily show on Al Jazeera Mubshar called “Ibrahim Eissa’s Salon”. It has started from 4 days ago.
Ibrahim Eissa interviewed Dr. Mohamed ElBaradei from three days ago, it is very important interview. For the second time Ibrahim Eissa interviews Dr. ElBaradei since his return to Cairo.
You can watch the interview after the break.
This is a summary for what Dr. ElBaradei said in the interview :
- He does not want to be a president , he wants only to build democracy in Egypt.
- He wants the next president in Egypt to be in 40s or 50s.
- He supports and wants a civil state in Egypt
- Being alliance with Muslim brotherhood does not contradict with his secular beliefs.
- The Muslim brotherhood support in the Egypt is not that big as some assume.
- The regime refused to discuss the demands of NAC and continued to defame him
I am biased to Dr. ElBaradei , this man since day one did not change his position unlike other politicians like for instance Dr. Amr Moussa who with my due respect began to speak only when he knew that Mubarak was going down sooner or later. I respect Moussa but I respect ElBaradei more.
ElBaradei is stepping aside I believe for fear to be accused of jumping in to the wagon still I am happy that Dr. Mustafa Al Naggar , the coordinator of his support campaign is among the youth delegation that meets with the armed forces council. I trust Dr. Al Naggar because he knows what we want , at least those who supported the demands of NAC.
I hope to see ElBaradei on the Egyptian TV channel next week insh Allah in an interview with Mahmoud Saad on Ch.2 , this is my wish. There is no reason why we do not see him on our national TV anymore after the end of this regime.
On February 10,2011 Dr. ElBaradei wrote an Op-Ed in NY Times about Egypt , ironically we did not pay attention to it because of what happened later in the following 48 hours.
When Mubarak stepped down on February 11,2011 , Mohamed ElBaradei tweeted this tweet :
Egypt today is a free and proud nation , God bless
Either you like the man or not you can’t deny that he has a role in preparing for this revolution just like the political movements since 2005 , the 6th April youth , just like Khaled Said movement if we are going to speak fair and logically.
