 In the third episode of his TV show with Al-Jazeera's veteran anchor, Muhammad Krishan, writer and journalist,Mohamed Hassanein Heikal said: "The springs of Egypt's political life were recently wounded, stressing the fallback of viceroy hereditary rule of Egypt, while, at the same time, criticizing the regime's way of dealing with the leader of the National Association for Change (NAC) and opposition figure, Mohamed El-Baradei, after announcing his intention to run for the presidency if the constitution is amended.
 
He questioned: Why do we behave improperly with El-Baradei once he intends to run for the office and call for change? He added: Although I disagree with him, El-Baradei won the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize having international experience and nominated himself as an alternative, calling on Egypt's regime to conduct dialogue with him, but he added: The issue is much more complicated than El-Baradei's candidacy for president.
 
Speaking about the Muslim Brotherhood, Heikal said that the group has political weight in the Egyptian streets because of the noticeable drought in the political processes, criticizing ’the MB's insistence on using the slogan ‘Islam Is the Solution’.
 
During his talk to Al-Jazeera, writer, Mohamed Hassanein Heikal, relied too much on a generation of young men that do not belong to the parties; he said: I bet on the young generation of Facebook and Twitter and I see that they have boundless enthusiasm and energy despite the irregularities that are being committed against them on the pretext of maintaining the country's peace and stability.
 
He also warned of trying to restrict freedom of expression and freedom of the press, because they are ’the only thing remaining of Egypt's soft power’.
