Will the Left Protest This, Part 2

Today brought news that Egypt will move to revoke citizenship for Egyptian men married to Israelis. Actions like this would shock any Westerner, but that sentence barely scratches the surface.

The citizenship revocation only applies to those married to certain Israeli woman. Care to guess which?

Some 30,000 Egyptian men are married to an Israeli woman. About 10% of those women are Arab Israelis. They are unaffected by this ruling.

That's right. Egypt will not revoke citizenship for marrying just any Israeli woman, but only if marrying a Jewish Israeli woman. Read more here.

And this comes from the first Arab state to sign a peace deal with Israel. This is one of the "moderate" Islamic nations.

Will the Left and the media protest this? Again, I think not.
