CAIRO, Egypt - The leader of Egypt's main Islamic opposition group said Thursday the Holocaust was a "myth," and he slammed Western governments for criticizing disclaimers of the Jewish genocide.
I am not surprised at Mehdi Akef's statement. His sentiment is shared by many here, both Islamists and non-Islamists alike. What really caught my attention was that now the media calls this man "Egypt opposition leader". The guy who described Mona Eltahawi as "naked" for not wearing the head cover.
Oh my wretched soul!
