He's been educated by Catholics since the age of four, and has lived in Italy since the age of 20, and that makes him an expert on Islam and/or Egypt?
I'm happy for his conversion, but the way the article puffs him is ridiculous.
There are certainly valid concerns about the direction the "Arab Spring" will take/is taking.
You don't have to be an expert to know that putting the Muslim Brotherhood - the parent of al-Qaeda and Hamas - in charge of a country isn't going to be good. Their slogan is thus: "Allah is our goal. The Koran is our law. The Prophet is our leader. Jihad is our path, and death in Allah's way is the highest of our aspirations."
And that's confirmed when the first action taken is growling at Israel, getting ready to break a treaty, and trying to cozy up with (not the Shah's) Iran.
