This From the Supposed 'Moderate' Guy in Egypt

From Ynet News  we have this from the supposed moderate guy everyone was telling us about in Egypt.

Former International Atomic Energy Agency chief Mohamed ElBaradei, who had previously announced his intentions to run for the presidency of Egypt, said Monday that “if Israel attacked Gaza we would declare war against the Zionist regime."

In an interview with the Al-Watan newspaper he said: "In case of any future Israeli attack on Gaza - as the next president of Egypt – I will open the Rafah border crossing and will consider different ways to implement the joint Arab defense agreement."

He also stated that "Israel controls Palestinian soil" adding that that "there has been no tangible breakthrough in reconciliation process because of the imbalance of power in the region - a situation that creates a kind of one way peace."
I'm not expecting any apologies from those who called us [those of us worried about the future of an Egypt after Mubarack] fear mongers.
