steps done at various levels. on the first one, of course, i want to just let people know that egypt army is not that kind of army, right now that will be become a -- or anything like that or take over the country. egyptian army does not have the knowledge to even run any type after fairs and we don't expect it to do so. it's basically a question of overseeing the transition. now, as to what will happen on the grounds, here's what i expect. i expect the egyptian confusion gets radically more defined, in order not to allow for any -- that somebody who takes over and just do what mubarak did, at the same time there will be fair elections on even marches within society and also maybe leading figures, the arab league chairman, i can also think of -- very important and hopefully pop already people in egypt who might take over and might be elected in the free election process that hopefully
will take place in september and this is what i see it going. >> in the meantime, i know that the opposition groups just told us within the last half hour they'll end these daily protests we see on the streets of cairo. big crowd out there top. but weekly demonstrations. how likely if things don't go the way the people want will we see more continued protests? >> well, i do not think that anyone in egypt now thinks that the army takeover will be a return to the type of government so i really think that this is a trawlingful account egyptian revolting now for 19 days, it's time for people to get bag to their life and time for them to -- the job has been done. mubarak is gone. and this is the -- what we all kneeled and time to look forward and hopefully get salvage whatever is left of our country and just look ahead at this moment, which is a great
moment for egyptians to choose to be on the right part of democracy. >> san francisco state professor of arab studies, dr. mohammed, we appreciate your time on this saturday morning. a british judge has postponed himself decision on whether to extradite the founder ever wikileaks on sex crime allegations. he said yesterday he need more time to consider the request. julian assange is wanted for questioning in sweden. he is fighting extradition, saying he will not get a fair trial there. >> i have never been able to present my side of the story. we have been confined to procedural arguments about some abuses of process, the validity of a warrant on its face, but not what props it up. >> his lawyers argue transferring him to sweden could be a stepping-stone to extradition to the united
