Hard to Keep the Conspiracy Theories Straight

Both President Mubarak and Vice President Suleiman, talking to ABC News, today, insisted the Muslim Brotherhood is behind the upheaval in Egypt. Meanwhile, as noted in this story in Al-Masry al-Youm, Government sources appear to be behind rumors that the whole thing is an Israeli plot.

Ah, yes, the Israeli-Muslim Brotherhood Axis strikes again!

Israel, of course, seems to be Mubarak's strongest cheerleader right now.
