I do not like Hosni Mubarak very much but I do not trust the Egyptian opposition either. A quick look at the opponents of Mubarak around the world - not to mention Hamas militants - determines the side I want to be on right now and unfortunately, I'd like to be on Mubarak's side. An Egypt ruled by the likes of 'Muslim Brotherhood' thugs and dingbats like Elbaradei can not be in anyone's interests unless you want a permanent state of war between Israel and her neighbors.
At the same time, average Egyptians have reservations about Elbaradei and his minions. It makes you think twice before throwing the towel and declare Mubarak a goner. My prediction is that Mubarak will be able to survive this crisis and he'll succeed in naming a trusted successor and allow for a free election. I hope the Egyptian people understand the lessons of the Iranian revolution and avoid doing to their country what the Iranians did to Iran in 1979. Mubarak is bad, but Sharia laws and Muslim Brotherhood jihadism is worse. I certainly hope they understand the stakes.
