Geo-Strategy Direct;11/7/2007, p14
The article reports that Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak has been begun using the official Egyptian clergy to quell the opposition in his quest to bequeath power to his son. The effort is meant to portray his opponents as blasphemers, the kind of term that leads to death threats by Muslims extremists. He ordered Mohammed Saeed Tantawi, the grand sheik of Al Azhar to carry out the plans. Tantawi's first step is to flog journalists who question Mubarak's health.
