This is just sad.
Result rankings are dependent on many factors including region, but I'm finding that the Google search for the great man's surname النشائي no longer has El Naschie Watch as the top result. We have been beaten by the execrable Arabic Wikipedia article about him, which, I observe, has become even more mendacious since I last saw it. Here's Google's English translation. If there is a single true statement in it I have not been able to find it. It begins
د. محمد النشائي عالم فيزياء نظرية ومهندس مصري، ورشح لجائزة نوبل 2006، وأستاذ الفيزياء النظرية بجامعة كمبردج البريطانية
Or in English
Dr. Mohamed El Naschie is a scientist of theoretical physics and an Egyptian engineer who was nominated for the Nobel Prize in 2006, and is Professor of Theoretical Physics at the British University of Cambridge.
How many falsehoods can our readers find in that one sentence?
