Hatem Bazian: Egypt, the ‘war on terrorism’ and Islamophobia

This delightful character is back, with a whiny piece on the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. They are victims! The opposition “constructed a war on terror campaign”, fanned “Islamophobia”, the Brotherhood were “otherized”, they were even “Swift Boated”!

And Bazian implies without coming right out and saying it that the opposition was behind the church burnings: “The attacks on Coptic churches are an old Interior Ministry strategy intended to divide the communities…The same strategy was used by Mubarak on more than one occasion, and it does produce results stoking religious tensions and preventing national unity from developing among the majority Muslim population and the Christian minority.”
