New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner found another subject to use as a soap box for his opinions – the crisis in Egypt.
After having reiterated his stand last month that Israel does not “occupy” Judea and Samaria, Weiner recently said of ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, “You can’t get elected by a relatively small portion of the electorate and then govern as if you’ve got a consensus.
“Democracies have setbacks, but obviously when the military is overturning a democratically elected government, you’ve gotta be concerned.”
Everyone is waiting next week for Weiner’s views on Saudi Arabia.Jewish Press News Briefs
