How To Deal With Gaza After Hamas

John and Tarek's Excellent S&M Adventure

Egyptian authorities have a "solid basis" to charge Canadian Muslim Brotherhood enablers John Greyson and Tarek Loubani, according to a report in today's Toronto Star.

Greyson and Loubani are hardcore anti-Israel activists who were delayed in Egypt en route to Gaza, which is controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood-linked terror group Hamas. Greyson's purpose evidently was to make a propaganda film featuring his friend Loubani.

Relations between Egypt and Gaza are extremely strained as the Hamas-controlled territory has been the source of terror attacks against Egyptians in  recent weeks. In response, Egypt has mostly sealed off Gaza and demolished most of the smuggling tunnels out of the territory that led to the Sinai desert.

The pair were arrested during a Muslim Brotherhood "Day of Rage" demonstration and Egyptian authorities allege the Canadian duo were in a Mosque that was a staging point for anti-government violence.

Along with Loubani, York University film professor Greyson, whose work is fixated on homoerotic themes, issued an emotive statement today which reads less like a record of fact than a melodramatic depiction of a sado-masochistic fantasy:
from John Greyson`s
"The Making of Monsters"

"That's when we were: arrested, searched, caged, questioned, interrogated, videotaped with a 'Syrian terrorist', slapped, beaten, ridiculed, hot-boxed, refused phone calls, stripped, shaved bald, accused of being foreign mercenaries. Was it our Canadian passports, or the footage of Tarek performing CPR, or our ice cream wrappers that set them off? They screamed 'Canadian' as they kicked and hit us. John had a precisely etched bootprint bruise on his back for a week."

The coup that removed Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi from Egypt had widespread support among the Egyptian population. After his democratic election, Morsi proceeded to subvert democracy by awarding himself dictatorial powers that exceeded those held by Hosni Mubarak.

It seems to have eluded the pair of anti-Israel fanatics that Egyptians might not be as enamored as they with a group who simply shared their goal of eliminating the Jewish state. Egyptians may despise Israel, but it poses no danger to them while also serving as a useful scapegoat. Whereas the Muslim Brotherhood represents an immediate threat to all Egyptians who don't want to live under the boot heel of Sharia Law.

Greyson and Loubani are currently on a fruit juice diet they are depicting as a "hunger strike," and mounting pressure from Canadian authorities may result in Egypt releasing them.

When that does happen, get ready for a sickeningly sanctimonious road show from a pair of self-declared martyrs that will make most forms of torture look mild by comparison.

I think that just about covers it. You said everything I've been stewing over since the "humanitarian" hype began for these Hamas stooges. And I can't say I'm surprised by the shallow reportage by the CBC. Just put a shovel into the ground and lift the sod, lads. The "useful idiot" rap sheet isn't had to locate if you have a mind that inquires.

You hit the nail right on the head in the third to last paragraph. Sure most Muslims hate Israel. But, unless you are in Palestine, Israel has little or no impact on you.

I even know some Jordanian-Palestinians whose family lost land in Israel. They do not really give much thought to Israel either. Their main concern is what is going on in Syria could spill over into their country and become a regional war. All in all, they do not really even have a problem with Israel because they at least know they do not have to fear Israel.

And this is what the leftist anti-Israel crowd in the west does not understand. There is a lot for the people of the Levant to fear. And for the most part Israel is not one of them.

This story is getting very little attention. Apparently surveillance equipment was found in their hotel room. Including a small radio controlled plane with a camera on it.

Christ, you really are an asshole. It's fine to disagree with someone's politic but that doesn't mean it's right for them to be arrested and detained in prison for months without charges.

Ah, sanctimonious, humorless outrage - the first, and frequently only response of the far-left.

Greyson and Loubani will be more than compensated by the all attention they have lucked into. This probably exceeds all their narcissistic dreams.

I hope the Egyptians investigate them endlessly. It's hard to imagine better desserts for a pair of terrorist simps like them.

I partially agree, in the sense that the Egyptians *should* have actually laid charges to them. But it was certainly legitimate to *make the arrest*, for two basic reasons. (1) The men were caught up in the midst of an illegal and violent demonstration. And (2)--this one's the biggie, it would seem to me--they were en route to Gaza to contribute to the support of Hamas, an enemy to Egypt!

So--duh!--why on earth should the Egyptian authorities be expected to just let these guys use the country as a way-station en route to aiding said country's enemy!!?

That right there was grounds for an arrest *and* charges; never mind the Brotherhood's demonstration.
