Benedict Brogan, Bruno and the ‘Islamists’

“Bruno and the conspiracy to mock the Islamists.” Thus the headline to Daily Telegraph comment piece by Benedict Brogan responding to the supposed threat against Sacha Baron Cohen made by a spokesperson for the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades.

Quite aside from the fact the Torygraph’s “chief political commentator” might be expected to have a slightly more informed understanding of the Israel/Palestine conflict, even a quick google would have indicated to Brogan that the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades are a coalition of militias aligned with the secular-nationalist movement Fatah.
