Oh, the lovely 'Arab Spring!'
Rubin at the JP:
"There was recently a violent demonstration at the Israeli Embassy in Cairo.
"The protesters set fire to an Israeli flag and demanded that the Israeli ambassador be expelled. They attempted to storm the embassy; 185 people were arrested, 18 police were injured.
"The demonstration was organized on Facebook by the April 6 Youth Movement – the same 'moderate' and 'democratic' group so highly praised in the West for 'leading' the Egyptian revolution.
"Asmaa Mahfouz is a leader of the movement. In fact, she claims that she personally began the revolution with a video calling for demonstrations.
"Now, Mahfouz is trying to launch a new revolution against the military rulers.
"One of the reasons she’s protesting the transitional military regime is that the army protected the Israeli Embassy from being seized by the demonstrators."
