My Mideast Punchlines: here come de judge…

The judge who acquitted Hosni Mubarak wrote in his 280-page ruling that the Egyptian revolution was a conspiracy between Israel, the US, and the Muslim Brotherhood.

Judge Mahmoud Kamel al-Rashidi began his decision by describing the January 2011 revolution as a Zionist and US conspiracy hatched to divide the country, according to a report on Egypt’s Mada Masr website . . .

The judge added that the Muslim Brotherhood movement was a key conspirator by aiding Hamas and Hezbollah to infiltrate the country in order to carry out a plan to topple Mubarak’s regime on January 28, 2011, the report said.

Rashidi backed up this claim by citing testimonies of “the nation’s wise men,” which included former intelligence head Omar Suleiman, former defense chief Hussein Tantawi and former prime minister Ahmed Nazif.

Small FistWell, if our friend Mahmoud Kamel (or should that read, Camel?) produces this sparkling triumvirate as an example of his nation’s wisdom, then all is not well in the land of the Pharaohs. Let’s face it, you would have to a be a felafel short of a pitta to believe that Israel would work towards the overthrow of Mubarak by the peace-loving and Jew-loving Muslim Brotherhood. Obama, maybe….but Israel? Should the Islamo-fascists of the Brotherhood have retained power, the good judge Kamel would probably have found himself forced to head (pun intended) across the desert on his animal namesake for a date with Jihadi John.
