‘Hipsters’ like Van Jones (who wishes us an “American Autumn”) and other ersatz occupiers of Wall Street and similar venues who choose to romanticize the ‘Arab Spring’ ought to have their heads examined. The ‘Arab Spring’ has been a disaster for a long time, but last night it turned into a horror show of violent religious bigotry.
From the BBC:
At least 24 people have been killed and more than 200 wounded in the worst violence since Egypt’s former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February.
Clashes broke out after a protest in Cairo against an attack on a church in Aswan province last week which Coptic Christians blame on Muslim radicals.
Egyptian TV showed protesters clashing with security forces as army vehicles burned outside the state TV building.
Is this something anyone in their right mind wants to emulate?
But not to worry because the Egyptian cabinet is meeting.
