On Mohamed El-Baradei


In today's al-Hayat, there was a short biography of Mohamed el-Baradei, director of the International Atomic Energy Agency, who was this year's recipient of the Nobel peace prize.

Apparently, el-Baradei has declared that he would offer half his share of the prize money to support orphans in Egypt. A humane gesture worthy of great respect.

My sincere congratulations to Mr. El-Baradei, and to the egyptian people. The Egyptians now have four Nobel laureates. Very diplomatic and hard working, they definitely deserve their title of leaders of the arab world.
