In a recent essay I predicted that Mohamed ElBaradei was about to gain control of Egypt following the ouster of Muslim Brotherhood Hosni Morsi. Like clockwork, a few days later it was announced that the military regime now controlling Egypt was about to declare ElBaradei to be the new Prime Minister of Egypt. Then the unexpected happened. A lesser 'political' party started calling the shots, and it would seem that even the Egyptian military fears the Al Nour Salafists. I naturally had heard of them but must confess that I was unaware of the fact that they had such political clout as to take on Egypt's military leaders and prevail.
