Will he find a job in Egypt for real??

There is an Egyptian scientist who is in his home after working and living for years in the United States of America.
Moniem El-Ganayni,57 years old physicist used to work in the famous Moniem Bettis Atomic power laboratory specialized in manufacturing parts of nuclear submarines to the U.S Navy. He is a famous contributing member in the Islamic community at Pittsburgh.
You can imagine the level of science of this man to work in a place like that. Anyhow after 9/11 and  his security clearance was revoked and he was fired in last May without any justification or evidence against him. Apparently his only crime is being an outspoken Islamic activist speaking against Bush and the War in Iraq.
He filed a federal suite that was dismissed by the U.S district judge in Pittsburgh. The American civil rights union is planning for appeal where as  El-Ganayni and his wife returned back home on last Wednesday.
In an interview to Post Gazette in Pittsburgh El-Ganayni said that he found a job as university professor with good salary. I do not know if he was saying this in an Egyptian way to preserve his dignity or it is true. And even if it is true ,I know that this gentleman will be shocked when he works in our universities especially as a Physics professor with our poor capabilities not to mention he will be shocked by the level of security intervention in the Universities. I fear that he may face trouble with his outspoken Islamic views in the University.
Of course in a perfect world this gentleman can be very useful to our future nuclear program.
There are thousands like El-Ganayni from Physics and nuclear scientists that should return back home and help in reviving the scientific research in this country. But what you can say scientists inherited the prophets and there is no dignity for a prophet in his country !!
Anyhow welcome home Dr. El-Ganayni :)

  1. First clean up the corruption in Egypt, then the scientists and physists will think about returning home!

  2. To have a security clearance in America an individual must be like Caesar's wife - above suspicion!- By his actions El-Ganayni had shown that he was not! He was active in important highly classified nuclear defense matters for many years.Why should the U.S. disclose intelligence methods in order to remove a security risk by lifting his/her clearance?. He was not charged with a crime. In most countries of the world he would be lucky to stay free and get out alive. His defense that it was only retaliation for his criticism of the President and the U.S. is not credible.

    P.S. I agree with anonymous
