The headline says it all: “Egyptian TV Airs Slow Beheading of Tunisian Muslim Who Converted to Christianity.”
Meanwhile, in other news, Hillary Clinton has been yucking it up with Egypt’s new President, Mohamed Morsi. The United States, quoth Clinton, “supports the full transition to civilian rule with all that entails.”
Isn’t that nice? Judging by his grin, Mr. Morsi seemed to like it.
Query: What do you suppose “with all that entails,” um, entails? We know what The New York Times thinks (well, “writes,” anyway: I’m not sure “thinks” is the mot juste when talking about the NY Times). My PJM colleague Rubin got it in one: “Revolutionary Islamists Taking Power Produces Moderation and Ends Terrorism!”
That, essentially, is what H. Clinton, mouthpiece of the Obama administration, wants you to believe. It’s all part of the foundational narrative when it comes to radical Islam and the Muslim Brotherhood. A year and a half ago when Cairo exploded, there was James Clapper, our Director of National Intelligence declaring on national television that the Muslim Brother had “eschewed violence” and was now a “largely secular organization.”
