Go Figure

Mostly Christian Sudanese refugees are fleeing Egypt--for Israel, where they've been helped by Bedouin, the Islamic Movement, and the Christian Embassy, an evangelical outfit.

I've been hard on Israel for many reasons, not the least the self-righteousness of its supporters, but it's not hard to imagine that these Sudanese folks, persecuted by the Egyptian government, know things the average British academic, where the faculty union had been advocating a boycott of Israeli universities, does not.
