ElBaradei vs. the Muslim Brotherhood Over the Bomb?

By Jeffrey Goldberg

Jared Bernstein:

If (ElBaradei) is part of a new government that emerges, one hopes that his attitude towards nuclear proliferation will not change, though the Muslim Brotherhood--which is known to be hostile to Israel and which has in recent years called for Egypt to acquire a nuclear deterrent--could put new pressure on the government to pursue a bomb. No one knows how this will turn out but of one thing we can be grateful: unlike in Pakistan, which faces instability of its own and has apparently doubled the number of its nuclear weapons to about a hundred, there aren't any nuclear weapons in Egypt that might fall into the wrong hands.
