Nazi Propaganda or Egyptian Daily: You Be the Judge!

Courtesy of the Telegraph, comes this story, which would be unbelievable if it were not so, well, believable. This is the sort of charming fare that Al-Akhbar, the Egyptian government daily newspaper that is readily available in London, is serving up for its readers on a regular basis:

"They are accursed in heaven and on earth a catastrophe for the human race They are the virus of the generation they are the plague of the generation and the bacterium of all time Their history was and always will be stained with treachery, falseness and lying they are a model of debasement and degradation."

Do I even have to reveal who "they" are? (And no, smart-ass, "they" are not Saudi princes or Independent reporters). And is the fact that who "they" are is so painfully obvious not profoundly disturbing? If Bush is looking to nominate a fourth member to the Axis of Evil club, I think that Egypt just formally threw its hat into the ring.
