"Media Matters": Trouble in Egypt? It's the Jooooos

I feel creeped out just linking to this guy. Here's M.J. Rosenberg:
-HuffPo puffery.
M.J. Rosenberg is Senior Foreign Policy Fellow at Media Matters Action Network. Previously, he worked on Capitol Hill for various Democratic members of the House and Senate for 15 years. He was also a Clinton political appointee at USAID. In the early 1980s, he was editor of AIPACs weekly newsletter Near East Report. From 1998-2009, he was director of policy at Israel Policy Forum.
Here he is at Media Matters:
If one needs additional proof that the "pro-Israel" lobby and the policies it dictates to US policymakers are bad for both the U.S. and Israel, look no further than what is happening in Egypt....MORE
In other news, we learn that it wasn't Napolean's troops who disfigured the Sphinx:
Who destroyed the nose of Sphinx?

The Great Sphinx of Giza is a half-human, half-lion Sphinx statue in Egypt. But the nose of this Great Sphinx at Giza is made conspicuous by its absence. What happened to it?

Although popular legend blames Napoleon and his troops during the French campaign in Egypt (1798-1801) for having shot the nose off the Great Sphinx, in fact this story just isn’t true.

An article by Ulrich Haarmann, “Regional Sentiment in Medieval Islamic Egypt,” states that according to Makrizi, Rashidi and other medieval Arab scholars, the face of the Sphinx was vandalized in 1378 A.D. by Mohammed Sa’im al-Dahr, a“fanatical sufi of the oldest and most highly respected sufi convent of Cairo.”...

Probably one of them Sufi Joooos.

(there's no such thing, if you're Sufi you're not Jewish and vice versa,
Madonna and her version of kabbalah, who knows)

Being the master of disguise that I am, I have in my posession three pairs of Groucho glasses.
Here are some other aficionados:


It's not all fun and games though:
