Today on Commentary’s blog Contentions, Michael Rubin has published a post defending himself for having raised the issue of Nobel Peace Prize winner Tawakkul Karman’s membership in the Yemeni al-Islah party. Perhaps the most remarkable thing about the controversy is that Michael Rubin would even need to defend himself for pointing out an association that, once upon a time, would have raised massive red flags for virtually any Western observer of Middle Eastern politics.
