Morsi Spews Anti-Semitism, HuffPosters Defend

The Huffington Post finally covered the story about when Mohammad Morsi, the new President of Egypt, made some informative comments:
"Morsi was a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 when, according to video broadcast last week on Egyptian television he asked Egyptians to "nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred." Months later, in a television interview, Morsi referred to Zionists as bloodsuckers who attack Palestinians, describing Zionists as "the descendants of apes and pigs.""
Surprisingly, the headline refers to the comment as "anti-Semitic," and not anti-Zionist, as I was expecting that they would. I guess even AP reporters aren't dumb enough to fall for that particular rhetorical device. Though they feel it is necessary to include that he said them three years ago.

Anyway, although the majority of the Huffington Posters bashed Morsi (and of course Obama because why not) a sizable chunk of them marched in to defend him:

As always, Huffington Post approved.
