Eli Lake on Egypt: AQ praises demonstrators
Here’s Eli Lake’s article on a Muslim Brotherhood higher-up calling for ending the peace treaty with Israel, without ever mentioning that Egyptians just might view the peace treaty with Israel as the primary means of enabling Mubarak’s brutal repression of their country. And then there’s this little nasty bit, in a throwaway sentence buried in the piece:
In the last week some al Qaeda affiliated websites have released messages praising the demonstrations against Mr. Mubarak.
Right, and so have the leaders of the Islamic Republic and the Green Movement. And a whole lot of other people. Oh, and Edler von Mildenstein supported Zionism. What’s your point, Eli? Out and say it.
