El Naschie forgets to compliment Mubarak at all

El Naschie's Rosa Al-Youssef column is up for Tuesday, 15 February 2011. Mass hysteria. Original Arabic or Google's English translation.

He cites David Ruelle and Ji-Huan He concerning nonlinear dynamics.

It is amusing to watch El Naschie struggle to reinvent himself in the post-Mubarak era.

He talks about a tendency of pendulums to synchronize as an explanation or metaphor for the rise of the movement to overthrow Mubarak. His failure to join in at an early stage he explains away as a personal dislike of the dynamics of crowds. For example he prefers to watch soccer on television, he says. So he was just being an individual.

He talks about possibly moving the Statue of Liberty from New York to Cairo, although he would prefer an American gesture toward the Palestinians. He's for freedom and democracy now. Never mind all that Mubarak worship from before January 25.

This reminds me of an old joke. Kurt Waldheim was an intelligence officer in the Wehrmacht in World War II. Later he became Secretary-General of the United Nations from 1972 to 1981 and didn't talk much about his former Wehrmacht position. Late-night comics said he had Waldheimer's disease: He got old and forgot he was a Nazi.
