At least two writers for the Guardian newspaper have distanced themselves from an editorial in the Guardian in which the paper criticizes the liberal opposition to Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi who seeks the ratification of a constitution protesters say does not protect individual rights from religious persecution, according to the CiFWatch organization.

In the editorial, the Guardian characterized the opposition as merely seeking power, saying the crisis was not about the constitution but a “power battle” against a “democratically elected president.”

In response, the paper’s Cairo correspondent wrote on his twitter account, I “totally disassociate myself from this @guardian editorial on #Egypt - it’s offensive & wrong.”

A contributor to the Guardian‘s “Comment is Free” opinion section, Rachel Shabi wrote “What is the Guardian thinking with this awful, misleading editorial on #egypt?”

Adam Levick, the managing editor of the CiFWatch website, wrote that, “The Guardian is not only supporting a racist, antisemitic, anti-Christian, anti-West Islamist movement, but are remaining loyal even when a more liberal alternative is possible. ”

CiFWatch monitors bias against Israel in the British publication the Guardian as well as other UK publication. It is affiliated with CAMERA. Its entries are often featured on the Jewish Press website.

  1. About time the press starts 2 wake up. Wake up world! Why don't they get it? I pray 4 His light @ Hanukah 2 light up the darkness!

  2. Morsi's recent ACTIONS combined with the RANTINGS from the time of his taking office do not take a genius to decode. It is a tradgedy that a revolution in Egypt so dearly bought has fallen into such demented and radical hands. THE BRITISH PRESS IN GENERAL CAUSE GRAVE CONCERN viz. the huge airing of recent Gaza festivities with no censor or comment of the death and destruction proposed towards the civillian population of Israel. WOULD THE BBC AIR LONG SPEACHES BY SHIN-FEIN PLANNING THE DESTRUCTION OF ALL OF ENGLAND BY ROCKET-FIRE, DISPLAYED GRAPHICALLY ON A MAP? THERE APPEARS TO BE AN ETHOS OF GROSSLY MISGUIDED "LIBERALISM" in the British Press. IT IS GROSSLY MISGUIDED.

    the majority of the Egyptian people voted Morsi in. Morsi is consider a moderate by Middle Eastern standard.
