MOHAMED ELBARADEI's return to Egypt in February was greeted with wild enthusiasm in Egypt's independent press, which was swift to pin long-held hopes for reform on the former chief of the IAEA, and near silence from the state media where Mr ElBaradei was pilloried in December...

Locked up in an Egyptian prison in the early 1960s, Sayyid Qutb wrote a book that has inspired succeeding generations of radical Islamists..

ONE of the endearing things about Egypt is that although nearly everyone fiddles, breaks or ignores the rules, everyone gamely pretends to respect them. Elections, for instance, are an elaborate charade. Rarely does turnout exceed 20%, and this from a list of registered voters that, in 2005, covered only 40% of the eligible pool, by official count...

THE fate of the Arab world’s two most important states lies in the hands of ageing autocrats. Hosni Mubarak, an 82-year-old air-force general who has ruled Egypt since 1981, is widely reported to be grievously ill. King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, who assumed the throne of the Arabs’ richest country five years ago but has run the show for longer, is reckoned to be 86. The grim reaper will bring change in both places soon...

THE election of a new leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the Arab world’s most influential movements, has aroused an oddly muted response, not just from the group’s critics but from fellow-travelling Islamists as well...

WHEN news emerged of the life-story of the Nigerian who tried to blow up a flight from Amsterdam to Detroit on Christmas Day, there were cries of bewilderment in some quarters, groans of dismay in others, and shouts of “I told you so” from a small army of Cassandras.Whatever motivated Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab to become a terrorist, it was not material deprivation; he came from a rich family...

The Egyptian president, Hosni Mubarak, is paying his first visit to Washington for five years. The main topic for discussion is the Obama administration's Middle East peace plan, which is to be announced next month. US officials will also be looking for any clues as to what might happen once Mr Mubarak's current term expires in 2011...

IN A city not much noted for efficiency, Cairo’s traditional rubbish collectors, or Zabbaleen, have long been something of a paragon. While failing to keep Egypt’s teeming capital very clean, the Zabbaleen, nearly all of them members of Egypt’s 6m-plus Coptic Christian minority, do an excellent job of processing waste. Trucking refuse to the half-dozen rag-picking settlements that ring the city, they carefully sift out recyclable glass, paper and plastic. The rest is fed to pigs. ..

AT A recent rally in the predominantly Kurdish city of Van, in south-east Turkey, Recep Tayyip Erdogan was in his element. Turkey’s prime minister rattled off his government’s achievements, bellowing out to a jubilant crowd, “22 primary schools, five health clinics, 82 kilometres of paved roads”...

A WAR, a riot, a terrorist attack or a row over blasphemy: not long ago, Britain’s government knew exactly what to do when a crisis loomed in relations with the country’s Muslims. As recently as July 2005, after bombs in London killed 56 people, Tony Blair was confident that he could avoid a total breakdown of trust between Muslim Britons and their compatriots..

WORKERS straggled towards the gates of the Mahalla spinning works, one of Egypt’s biggest textile mills. The prime minister, Ahmed Nazif, had just thanked them in person for not going on strike, and granted them an extra month’s wages. But it took no prompting to elicit grumbles. “I don’t want a car, I don’t want cinemas, I don’t want to eat Kentucky chicken,” declared Masoud Hafez, an electrician who has worked in the factory for 28 years, brandishing a monthly pay-slip of 249 Egyptia..

ATTEMPTS at a rapprochement between the Palestinian Islamist party, Hamas, and its more secular rival, Fatah, faltered this week almost as soon as they had begun. Mahmoud Abbas, president of the Palestinian Authority (PA) and head of Fatah, quickly disowned an agreement that his negotiator had signed after talks with Hamas representatives in Yemen...
