Subject: re: Cabs, Camels or ISIS
To the Editor:
Thomas L. Friedman talks out of both sides of his mouth. We join with him in praying that education, enlightenment and a creeping scientific world view will in time leave no room for ISIS or groups like it. We cannot, however join him in embracing Mohammed el-Sisi. el-Sisi is just the latest military strongman whom America has supported against his own democratically-elected government, this time in Egypt. As long as we are seen as standing with el-Sisi (who has gunned down political demonstrators in the streets) we are encouraging recruitment to those very terrorist groups that mr. Friedman claims to oppose.
