Yet the Washington Post sees a flowering of democracy:
Mohamed Morsi named new Egyptian president
CAIRO — Egyptians picked a conservative Islamist as their first freely elected president, officials announced Sunday, giving the Muslim Brotherhood a platform to challenge entrenched military authority and electrifying the Arab world’s most populous nation with one of the most concrete signs of democratic change since the revolution last year.
And Sheik Yousuf Al-Qaradhawi, official "Spiritual Leader" of the Muslim Brotherhood says, "Allah Imposed Hitler upon the Jews to Punish Them.＂
How is it that neither the Jewish left, nor mainstream western journalism, is acknowledging the rising intensity of genocidal anti-Jewish hatred in the Middle East? It's bad in Europe, but in the Middle East it is genocidal.
This is simply remarkable.
The spread of radical Islam in the Middle East is the single most significant development in global politics since the fall of the Soviet Union and yet the Jewish left continues to bury its head.
Egyptian Cleric Safwat Higazi Launches Presidential Campaign for Muslim Brotherhood Candidate Mudhammad Mursi - Says: "The Capital of the Caliphate -- the capital of the United States of the Arabs -- will be Jerusalem"
Let us look at that one more time:
The Capital of the Caliphate -- the capital of the United States of the Arabs -- will be Jerusalem.
This is a statement from a Muslim Brotherhood leader made directly in Morsi's presence during a recent campaign rally in Cairo and, yet, the Jewish left remains mute.
I find it unconscionable and just plain stupid.
