    Michael Koplow is looking ever more like the village idiot! You really should choose your allies more wisely in future! He even makes Hitchens look like the voice of the Arab street!

    Good coverage of the revolt here:

    The preposterously-named anti-semite “Lenin’s” usual popular-frontist drivel, “good coverage”? I don’t think so Steve. And what exactly does Koplow (whatever you think of him) have to do with this post from the Centre for Trade Union & Workers’ Services?

  3. SteveH said,

    Koplow made reference to Egypt in his ill thouight out article on Tunisia, published unwisely on this site.

    And current events in Egypt undermine his entire argument! Not that he had an argument anyway.

    I would have thought precisely the contrary was the case.
    We shall see how much of a role the Muslim Brotherhood plays in the Egyptian revolt. So far, very little. But there is always the danger that they will come to the fore and divert the movement away from democracy and social justice and towards clerical fascism.

    Oh dear! Seek help, you are in desperate need of it.
