Daybreak: Brothers Rising in Egypt

Plus J Street on the spot, and more in the news

• In Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood has become “a tacit partner with the government.” Its popularity was foreseen; its ability to cooperate so well with the military was not. [NYT]

• The J Street hearing in the Knesset gets the Times treatment. [NYT]

• There were more rockets from Gaza yesterday, and a West Bank skirmish resulting in injuries on both sides. [Ynet]

• While thousands marched in a funeral in the southern town of Daraa, Syria’s government has generally been successful at tamping down protests. [WSJ]

• In Israel, Defense Secretary Robert Gates condemned Wednesday’s bombing and the Gaza rockets while urging Israel on toward the peace process—there is concern that Israel is limited in its responses by the lack of progress. [NYT]

• Unusually violent clashes reported in Amman. [AP/WP]

Bashar Assad should be looking for a nice town square to hang upside down in.

Asher says:

In response to the New York Times article on J street, is there anything worse than self-hating Jews who appear to take great pride in showing how “even-handed” they are?

Bryna Weiss says:

There is nothing wrong with Jews criticizing Israel, but not in front of the whole world which is relishing it’s deligitimization of Israel and inciting more Palestinian violence because they thin Diaspora Jews are abandoning Israel. Jeremy J Street seems to be more interested in self-promotion than helping Israel realize it’s moral goals.
And, by the way, he certainly doesn’t speak for majority of American Jews of ANY age!
