Who is Winning the Propaganda War in Egypt?

Apparently, that would be the Muslim Brotherhood as they continue the mantra that peaceful protesters have been massacred by security forces. never mind that over 60 security personnel have been  killed. Never mind that those "peaceful sit-in" sites were centers of rapes and killings of suspected spies Never mind the fact that those poor protesters holed up in a Cairo mosque only found themselves there after after attacking a nearby police station. Never mind the 60 or so Christian churches attacked and burned to the ground by Muslim Brotherhood supporters. Here is today's propaganda piece from Ikhwan Web, the MB's English-language web site:

Peaceful protesters

Meanwhile the feckless leaders of the EU willingly gobble up the propaganda of the Brotherhood as they dither over what to do.

They could always send the baroness Lady Catherine Ashton over to Cairo I guess.

Here is a Fox News  interview of Jason Isaacson of the American Jewish Committee, which has come out in support of the Coptic community. The video has a misleading title (Coptic Christians blamed for violence in Egypt).

Meanwhile, here in the US, our own leaders on both sides of the aisle, in  the White House, State Department and Congress, have no clue what to do. Last week Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham issued a joint statement to the President urging him to stop aid to Egypt based on the actions of the military-led government. They said not one word about the plight of the Coptic Christians.

Shame on them.
