    The ghost of the Grand Mufti lives on

    In a recent broadcast on a top-rated Egyptian TV show, viewers were told that Jews attack Egypt by, inter alia, manipulating the weather, causing earthquakes, and firing meteors from outer space. There is a sickness at the heart of a political culture that produces such twisted nonsense

    Shouldn't the fake trial of Mubarak revive January 25?

    How our "friends" in the MidEast fuel ISIS terror

    Our "friends" such as the Egyptian coup leaders consistently fuel the anti-Western hatred that is central to the ISIS-style terror narrative. So in what sense are these governments our "friends"? We don't know what we're doing

    Egypt's justice system kills justice and people

    Egypt's broken criminal justice system has confirmed death sentences on 183 political opponents and sentenced journalists to years in prison on trumped up charges. The trials were a joke, but the punishments are deadly serious

    Egypt’s new govt calls for anti-Christian measures?

    Are Egypt’s Christians again fated to watch their nation take one step forward only to take another one right back -- the inevitable outcome of a worldview that tries to articulate itself through Islamic terms?

    The New York Times’ propaganda war on Egypt

    There is much evidence that Egypt, while far from becoming a Western-style democracy, is now on a better path -- certainly than under the Muslim Brotherhood. But in the New York Times, that reality doesn't fit the narrative

    Muslim mob slaughters Christian for her cross

    This account of the brutal murder of a Christian woman solely for being a Christian shames the Western media that refuses to report on such barbarism

    Egyptian dictatorship's 529 death sentences

    The Western supported dictatorship in Egypt has shown its true colours with the death sentences handed to 529 mostly innocent people. No Egyptian will be surprised that there is no justice in their country

    Egypt miracle hepatitis, HIV cure farce continues

    The big retreat. No Egypt HIV miracle cure after all

    Not at all funny to be messed about like this if you have HIV. But perhaps a wry smile as cynical Egypt coup leaders start the big retreat after lunatic-level propaganda claim to have miracle HIV cure

    Egypt claims miracle cure for HIV and Hepatitis

    Almost certainly a political miracle rather than a medical one, Egypt's claim to have an instant cure for HIV and Hepatitis shows the lengths the coup leaders will go for legitimacy (UPDATE LINKED IN SECOND PARAGRAPH)
