Baradi`i on Israel

I have been critical of Baradi`i and remain critical.  I oppose his candidacy for any post in Egypt.  So I asked a supporter of his for his stance on Israel.  He said that while he is not the Angry Arab, but that he has been critical.  He gave me some examples:
"he said the occupation forces only understand force"
"he cancelled interviews with the BBC over its decision not to broadcast a charity appeal for Gaza."
"his stand on Gaza angered Abdel Menem Said"
"Zionists are now saying that he's a front man for the Muslim Brotherhood" (source is French equivalent of MEMRI)
"- he said that if elected he would support Palestinian resistance"
