Jewdar is a long time subscriber to the New York Times, and not one of those to cry “foul” whenever there’s a story on the Middle East whose angle we dislike, but sometimes… In his recent story on Egyptian President-elect Morsi’s promise to secure the release of Abdel Rahman, the imam involved in the 1993 World Trade Center attack, the Times‘ David Kirkpatrick had this to say:
Although it is nearly impossible to find an Egyptian who supports terrorist attacks like those on Sept. 11 or the 1993 car bombing of the World Trade Center garage, many are very skeptical of official American accounts about who was responsible.
Really? Nearly impossible to find an Egyptian who supports terrorist attacks? Far be it from Jewdar to engage in ethnic or religious profiling, but how hard did Kirkpatrick look?
