Mohamed El Baradei and the IAEA won this year's Nobel peace prize. That makes him the fourth Egyptian Nobel laureate and the second Egyptian to win the peace prize.
I hope this prize will induce El Baradei to continue working on preventing a drunk driver from having a car's keys, preventing Iran's crazy Mullahs from acquiring nuclear materials that can easily be transformed into nuclear weapons.
Egyptian Nobel prize winners:
1. President Anwar Sadat: peace prize (1979)
2. Naguib Mahfouz: literature prize (1988)
3. Ahmed Zewail (also an American): chemistry prize (1999)
4. Mohamed El Baradei: peace prize (2005)
