Wael Ghonim: Is he an Islamist?

COMMENT: Wael Ghonim garnered world-wide publicity during the Egyptian uprising, credited with doing much to galvanize the opposition to Hosni Mubarak.

A graduate of American University in Cairo (at which Muslim Brotherhood-linked elements embrace the economic theories of Ibn Khaldun [2]), Ghonim is alleged to have developed one of the most popular websites [3] in the Arab World.

We may be fairly confident that the driving elements behind what we have termed “the Piggy-Back Coup [4]” will doubtless assure us of the “moderate” nature of the site and its contents.

An English version of the website (perhaps edited for Western consumption) is available here [5].
