Mona Eltahawy, the white man’s favorite Egyptian talking head, famously claimed that the Egyptian revolution was not at all about Israel. Egyptian popular music shows where public opinion is now.
Shakira seems to have answered her own question in her earlier song “Dónde Están los Ladrones” -Where Are the Thieves? She visited a place that was founded by ladrones.
You once said that you have standards, that there are certain individuals you would not have on your show as guests (in reference to Novak for revealing the identity of a CIA agent), but I think over the years your standards have been diminishing.
