The real "Jill Carrol?" TWT

Debbie Schlussel has this at her blog:

From a reader: I met Carroll in Cairo two summers ago in an Arabic language training school (Kalimaat).

I admit I was struck by her anti-American and anti-Israel sentiments. From the comments she made she seemed to detest America more than Arabs did. She was pleased that I mistakenly identified her as Canadian and expressed a wish to deny being American. I was surprised knowing how proud Americans normally are of their identity. She refused to use the name Israel but called it 'that state' with some venom, which made me feel uncomfortable as she knew I was Jewish.

What's really funny, considering that she works for the CS Monitor, were the comments she made about the Bible "that shit book"
