AbuKhalil bristles with indignation at the news:
"... Chris Stone, the American academic, was stabbed in Cairo. Chris is a wonderful human being and an excellent scholar and a great friend of the Palestinian people. This is how dumb and criminal wholesale hatred and hostility to all Americans is."
Now if Chris Stone was not a wonderful human being, or an excellent scholar, or a great friend to Palestinians, would it still be dumb and criminal if he were stabbed in Cairo? Just wondering.
