(UPDATED) We thought everything that could be said about Anthony Weiner's lewd photo scandal had been said. But Eliana Benador, a former influential neoconservative public relations operative, has proved us wrong.
Writing for the "Communities" section of the Washington Times' website, Benador argues that the Twitter scandal shows that ... the Jewish Weiner might have converted to Islam!
Benador, who is currently the U.S.-based "goodwill ambassador" for a group of Jewish settlers in the West Bank, advances an argument that is fairly difficult to follow, but it seems to go like this: Because a New York imam was quoted in the press seeming to take Weiner's side in the matter, and because Muslims (supposedly) practice deception as part of their faith, it's possible that Weiner is secretly a Muslim convert who is still presenting himself to the world as a Jew.
