Monday Islamist briefs

Egypt, enemy, same difference: An Islamist won the presidency of Egypt. He’s already promising to “review” the Camp David Peace Treaty with Israel and increase ties to Iran. Also, Fatah is nervous as hell and Hamas is ecstatic. Awesome work by Obama’s smart power. Say, Tom Friedman, how’s that “Facebook kids” revolution going in Egypt? Tom? Tom? Hello? Is anyone there?

Gloom and doom: Ron Ben-Yishai’s analysis of the Islamist win: Gloom. Barry Rubin’s analysis: Doom. Doom. Ha’aretz: Not so gloomy.

It’s CYA time: Syria says, “Oh, that was a Turkish jet? We thought it was someone else invading our territory from your country.”

What, no condemnation from the world? Turkey is bombing Kurds inside Iraq, but I’ll bet you didn’t know that. Nobody cares when a country that is not Israel crosses borders to take out terrorists or threats to its own nation. It is only Israel that is denied the right to self-defense.

    Kerry says to give the MB president a chance!
    John Kerry: Don’t ‘Prejudge’ The Muslim Brotherhood

    He said something akin to ““But it would be a mistake for us to pull back from our engagement with a free and democratic Egypt.”
    There’s that word again, “democratic”.
