The self-proclaimed leader of the Egypt uprising and probable next president, Mohamed ElBaradei, is on the board of trustees for the International Crisis Group. George Soros is chairman. The group is funded by the Soros Institute, Open Society Institute, and other liberal groups.
The group praised the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, back in 2008. They condemned Mubarak for "fledging reform process" by not recognizing the Islamic group, and warned of "serious socio-economic unrest." The group slammed people who "stoke fears of an Islamist takeover" and warned "the strategy is at heavy risk of backfiring."
ElBaradei worked heavily as Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency to give Iran nuclear power. He reaffirmed that Iran's nuclear ambitions are "legal", according to Tehran Times.
ElBaradei founded the "National Association for Change" with Hamdy Kandeel as his spokesman, a popular radio personality well-known for his support of Egypt's Islamic extremist leader Gamal Nasser, who led war against Israel. Soros gained huge profits in oil from a Nasser's oil crisis:
(stableboyselections.com) But barely a month after his arrival, Soros again found luck when the Suez crisis erupted in violence. Earlier that summer, Egypt’s president Gamal Abdel Nasser had nationalized the canal, seizing control from the internationally owned private stock company that ran it. In August Nasser expelled British oil officials from Egypt. Then in late October, Israeli forces launched a lightning attack and seized the Gaza Strip and almost all of the Sinai. Taking advantage of Egypt’s losses, Britain and France attacked Egyptian positions by air and established their own control over the canal zone until pressure from the United States forced their withdrawal and led to the creation of a U.N. peacekeeping force.
“Even after diplomacy forced the European invaders to pull back, scuttled ships and damaged locks left the waterway impassable and forced shipping companies to set their tankers on longer and costlier courses to transport their oil. Given the upheavals, the market in oil shares became very active, and Soros, using connections he had established in England, rushed in. He would look for opportunities in Europe, obtain commitments, and publish his offerings on the so-called pink sheets that were distributed to brokerages as a sort of mimeographed and quite primitive antecedent of the NASDAQ. Brokerages would call on behalf of their customers while prices often fluctuated minute to minute. Professionally, it turned out to be a productive time for the newcomer, and except for walking to and from the subway he had no time to explore his new environment.
“Eventually the Middle East tensions eased and the feverish trading in oil shares subsided. At that point, with the help of Paul Cohn, an older man at the Mayer firm, Soros devised a new market. As he recalls, his first such venture involved a Canadian company, Northspan Uranium, that was seeking capital to develop a new mine. Their bonds had warrants attached to them. After a specified period the warrants could be used to acquire shares. Soros came up with a scheme for trading the bonds and the shares independently. ‘We employed due bills,’ he explained. ‘Let’s say you sold the bonds to a reputable broker. The broker would give you back a due bill declaring that they would deliver the shares when they became detachable. And then you made a market in the due bills.
Soros played the Eygpt game before and won. He predicted how the violence would play out and invested in the right places. There are again concerns over the Suez canal, but in light of the mysterious prison breaks of Muslim Brotherhood terrorists it is clear Soros has something else in mind. This time he is in much more control of his five part plan for regime collapse behind the violence.
The Muslim Brotherhood has representatives in ElBaradei's National Association for Change. The group staged protests early on, declaring: "Demonstration also is a form of protest against the practices of the security forces against the Arab claimants freedom and democracy." ElBaradei's group urged the Muslim Brotherhood to lead the protests after they had initially refused to become involved.
The US now holds secret meetings with the Muslim Brotherhood to direct the crisis, and the US government sponsered summits in New York to train protesters how to topple the regime. ElBaradei seeks to spin the Muslim Brotherhood's radical Islamic roots as he builds an alliance for a new government:
(thehill.com) "This is total bogus that the Muslim Brotherhood are religiously conservative,” he said. “They are no way extremists. They are no way using violence. They are not a majority of the Egyptian people. They will not be more than maybe 20 percent of the Egyptian people.
“You have to include them like, you know, new evangelical, you know, groups in the U.S., like the orthodox Jews in Jerusalem,” ElBaradei said.
He said the Islamists were “not at all” behind the uprising.
George Soros' Open Society Institute financed the Wasla magazine for Islamist politicians to connect better with bloggers. We know that social media caused the protests.
