Abdallah's Blog has contemporaneous commentary about it, overlooked by El Naschie Watch until just now, reproduced in full below the fold.
El Naschie... Yet Another Kamouna!!
I just watched Hala Sarhan interview Mohamed El Naschie, a presidential candidate.
The guy was introduced as the leading physicist in the 21st century. For a second, I was embarrassed I did not recognize a fellow Egyptian who is such a leading figure.
A quick Google search showed that the guy is a fraud. He authors papers in a journal moderated by himself. His inflated impact factor is just a result of a standard trick employed by fraudulent scientists.
Anyways, that can just be the evil western Google manipulating public opinion to dismiss the existence of any Egyptian scientists. Listening to his interview sealed the deal. He dismissed relativity theory as theoretical luxury, theories which have no practical application yet, but might find some place in practice in the far future. He made some other comments that hardly depart from an educated brain.
For a second, I got some pleasant flashbacks of Kamouna, the Egyptian scientist who solved (or rather dissolved) P vs. NP, continuum hypothesis, …etc. by using.. <drums>.. Prolog.
I will not go further into any details regarding his real scientific status. Interested readers can google him.
The comparison is to Dr. Rafee Kamouna. The Saudi Gazette has a moderately credulous article about him.
By the way, if you Google El Naschie as Abdallah suggests, you know where you end up.
Thanks to Shrink for this great find.
