Tuesday post-holiday weekend briefs

Back at work, and not loving it? Yeah, me too.

Of course they are: The Muslim Brotherhood is over the moon about their offshoot, Hamas. Why the love? Because Hamas is succeeding in getting the world to bend to its will. Watch. Soon, the EU will be demanding that Israel negotiate with the PA even if it’s made up of openly unrepentant terrorists who say, quite plainly, that they will accept a state along the 1949 Armistice lines as a first step towards taking all of “Palestine.”

Openly spouting jihad: The AP put this quote in its recent piece about Hamas and the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and yet, somehow, it didn’t get very high placement in the article.

Haniyeh described Hamas as the “jihadi movement of the Brotherhood with a Palestinian face.’’ He said his visit to the Brotherhood center would confuse and frighten Israel.

That’s funny. I thought Karl Vick told us that Hamas joining the PLO meant that it would become more moderate, not less openly terrorist. Huh. Go figure. (Gee. Karl Vick is silent on the non-moderation of Hamas.)

Muslim ERA Watch: Yeah, like this is gonna stop them. The Egyptian court ordered the military to stop performing “virginity tests” on female prisoners. What an awesome, awesomely feminist religion, that Islam. I can’t wait to hear the apologists explain to me how a virginity test really is a form of feminism that Westerners just can’t understand.

Of course, a story the AP can really sink its teeth into: They don’t cover “honor” killings widely. They don’t cover the lack of equal rights for women in most Muslim countries. But of course, an extremist group of religious nuts mistreating girls in Israel? Wall-to-wall coverage, baby, including video at every link! Outraged editorials and op-eds in the New York Times in 3, 2, 1…

    Even YNet isn’t getting the story quite right, according to my son, who is in Yeshiva in Beit Shemesh. He says it is not even the whole Haredi community there, but a small fringe. Unfortunately, the larger Haredi community isn’t pushing back on them. They have elevated this into a war between the Haredi nuts and the Modern Orthodox.
