Weir's Altered Universe
On this evening's Nightline, part of Bill Weir's introduction to the piece on Egypt's current struggle included a bizarre mention that Egypt somehow "defends Israel". In what cuckoo land does Mr. Weir reside? The Israel Defense Forces and Israeli people protect Israel- certainly no Arab or Muslim state or potentate. At best, Israel has endured a cold peace with Egypt that Israel achieved with enormous sacrifice at Camp David. Weir is utterly comical terming Hosni Mubarak a "defender" of Israel as he and his state-controlled Egyptian media constantly lambaste Israel that not even one Muslim nation will openly acknowledge as the Jewish state.
