El Naschie still calls 't Hooft a friend

El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Thursday, September 2. Van Gogh in the stock market. Original Arabic or Google's English.

Names of artists dropped: Van Gogh, Picasso, Renoir, Monet, Toulouse Lautrec, Mondrian.

El Naschie talks about the recent theft of a Van Gogh painting from the Mohamed Mahmoud Khalil museum in Cairo. He seems to think the painting wasn't a real Van Gogh.

But what's remarkable is this from the last paragraph:

I also remember when my friend Dr. Gerard 't Hooft, the Dutch scientist of theoretical physics and winner of the Nobel Prize in physics in 1999, visited me in Cairo. I told him we must see the exhibit. As a citizen of the Netherlands he was surprised by a Van Gogh in Cairo.

Recall that Renate Loll is in 't Hooft's group in Utrecht, and El Naschie and his supporters accuse her and her coauthors of stealing El Naschie's work and publishing it in Scientific American. So it's interesting to know that El Naschie is still comfortable calling 't Hooft his friend.

Continued tomorrow.

  1. El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Friday, September 3. Van Gogh and George W. Bush. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

    El Naschie refers to his "teacher" John Kenneth Galbraith. He name drops Van Gogh and artist Paul Gauguin. This and the previous column are just some philosophical maundering about art, money, beauty and life. "The economy is the body, but art is the soul" etc. The autobiographical pieces were much better.

    There is no Saturday column.
