My short email to Yahya Reda Gad

Yahya Reda Gad (يحيى رضا جاد) is an Egyptian medical student. On February 18 he wrote a blog post containing a preliminary list of outstanding Egyptians who he thinks should play a role in post-Mubarak Egypt. I just sent him an email as follows:

Dear Yahya Reda Gad,

Your blog post After consultation and dialogue (بعد التشاور والتحاور) includes a list of ostensible scientists. As far as I know the list is mostly correct. But it does contain a serious error. You refer to Mohamed El Naschie as "Professor of Theoretical Physics, Oxford and Cambridge and Germany and a number of universities in the world".

You begin your post with the words

انطلاقاً من قول الله تعالى : "واعتصموا بحبل الله جميعاً ولا تفرقوا" [آل عمران 103]، "ولا تنازعوا فتفشلوا وتذهب ريحكم" [الأنفال 46]، و"تواصوا بالحق وتواصوا بالصبر" [العصر 3].
From the words of Almighty God: "The Rope of Allah and be not divided among yourselves" [Al-Imran 103], "not, lest your power depart" [Anfal 46], and "exhort one another to truth and exhort one another to patience" [age 3].

from which I infer that the truth is important to you. Therefore please be aware that Mohamed El Naschie is not a professor at Cambridge or Oxford. In fact, he has no degree in math or physics whatsoever. Not even an undergraduate degree. He is a charlatan. Please read Introduction to Mohamed El Naschie on my blog El Naschie Watch, which is dedicated to unmasking El Naschie's fraudulent presentation of himself. He even goes so far as the make the ludicrous claim that he has been nominated for the Nobel Prize. He has been implicated in a citation scamming scandal. There is too much to put in this email.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Congratulations on getting rid of Hosni Mubarak.

  1. Good lord. The revolutions in Egypt and Tunisia have inspired substantial insurrections in Bahrain and Libya. There are shooting, arson, large crowds, and there are deaths. The Arabic language station in Benghazi has been taken oven by anti-Qaddafi protesters and -- at this moment -- they are broadcasting! Unbelievable. Those are some brave Libyans.

  2. Speaking of Libyans, Qaddafi has gone totally crazy. He is bombing his people with artillery and air forces. Sub-saharan mercenaries were seen in the streets of Tripoli shooting randomly at people in the streets. Two colonels have escaped to Malta with their fighter jets after refusing his order of bombing Ben Ghazi. It's a war and his son said that they are going to fight to the last bullet, it seems that he really means it. Mubarak and Ben Ali were so gentle and kind comparing to this lunatic.

    BTW, Sheikh Qaradawi mentioned in your other post has issued a fatwa yesterday that Qaddafi is to be killed by whoever has the means to do it. I believe it's a very wise thing to do now.

  3. There are several reports that the anti-Mubarak activist Wael Ghonim was physically prevented from speaking in Tahrir Square by Qaradawi's Muslim Brotherhood entourage. See for example The Yuppie Revolution In Egypt Is Over, The Islamist Revolution Has Begun and Egypt protest hero Wael Ghonim barred from stage. If that was Qaradawi's doing, it doesn't reflect well upon him in my opinion. But I agree with his anti-Qaddafi stance.

    If the Libyan people get their hands on Qaddafi they'll tear him to ribbons.

  4. I don't support any non-democratic or non-civilized actions (like issuing and executing a fatwa), but I understand Libyan people who want to get rid of their dictator - as I understood Romanian people more than 20 years ago who put to death their long-lived dictator Ceauşescu (although it was a sentence of a military tribunal and the execution was carried by the military itself).

  5. I agree with you Shrink, however, in a tribal society like Libya there is no constitution, no parliament, and hardly any law except of Qaddafi's own will.

    The amazing thing is that at the beginning of the protests, there were only few people who were anti-Qaddafi. He could've gone away by making some minor reforms like making a constitution and an elected parliament, or even raising their salaries a little bit. However, as soon as he started the killing and hired foreign mercenaries, it became more of a tribal issue rather than pro-democratic demonstrations. I wonder how would he get out of it alive.

    As for Ghoneim's instance, surely this is outrageous. Whoever is responsible for it should be ashamed.

  6. I remember the end of Ceauşescu. He was giving a speech, expecting the usual fawning applause, and the audience booed. A look came over his face. He knew the jig was up. They executed his wife too.
