A LEADING CANDIDATE IN EGYPTIAN ELECTION IS A 9/11 TRUTHER

by Rhonda Spivak, May 25, 2012

Abdel-Moneim Abolfotoh, now a leading candidates for the Egyptian presidency is a 9/11 Truther as revealed in this is Ben Birnbaum piece:

Mr. Abolfotoh expressed his views on the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon in an interview last year with Egypt scholar Eric Trager.

Mr. Trager, now with the Washington Institute for Near East Policy, quoted Mr. Abolfotoh as saying:

"It was too big an operation .... They [the United States] didn't bring this crime before the U.S. justice system until now. Why? Because it's part of a conspiracy."

This is a troubling sign.

 

As Jeffrey Goldberg in the Altantic wrote; "It's hard to imagine a fantasist getting a grip on Egypt's disintegrating economy, and it's hard to imagine a fantasist preserving the peace treaty between Egypt and Israel."

In retrospect, those conservative Israeli columnists who weren't so eager to embrace the Arab Spring may have had a point, more than the Obama administration realized.
