Egypt's ElBaradei under house arrest in Mosque, Mubarak on last legs?
President Mubarak has finally spoken and asked the entire Government to step down saying he was for the poor people. That said it was after midnight and people were taking to the street asking for Mubarak to step down and were going after the information Ministry. Can the old bulwark in the middle east stand as is?
Egyptian government 'on last legs' says ElBaradei
ElBaradei: The man to lead a 'free' Egypt?
When thousands of angry protesters take to the streets of Egypt today, one man many see as the country's next potential leader will be among them.
ElBaradai is the best man for the job even if he says he would take control long enough to get the country back on track. It certainly beats the Islamist alternative. The 68-year-old former head of the United Nations nuclear agency and possible presidential candidate, who has urged President Hosni Mubarak to leave office, told reporters at the airport that he will take part in an anti-government protest planned for today in Cairo.
ElBaradai was also a nobel peace prize winner and he set up the National Association for Change in 2010 to campaign for democracy and against corruption. That is certainly a unique concept in these corruptive so called Democracies. The alternative to me is the Islamist group Muslim Brotherhood who will also be in the protest today and would like to turn Egypt against the west.

CAIRO - Kuwaiti foreign minister says the Arab world is witnessing an "unprecedented political mobilization," in reference to the expected secession of south Sudan and the uprising in Tunisia that led to removal of a longtime authoritarian ruler. Kuwait FM: Arab world witnessing 'unprecedented political mobilization'
African nations, the Middle East, they are all in trouble as in environments like this the down trodden and poor nations are the first to go down. It is no coincidence that they happen to be Muslim and the Islamists will capitalize off this but it will not lead to more jobs food and a better life. It will lead to a stricter harsher life period!
The Islamists will take advantage and create dissention everywhere they can. This may have started on 9/11 2001 but it is really still just beginning to take shape. Demonstrations have erupted in the past month in several Arab countries including Algeria, Morocco and Yemen, which all face high unemployment rates and rising living costs, factors which fueled the uprising. Jordan is also worried! At least with ElBaradai ther4e is hope for Egypt.
