Why Were Two Pro-Hamas Canadian "Leftists" Arrested in Egypt?

The New York Times claims it's because Egypt's military has "widened" the definition of Islamist to include them:
Ten days ago, the police arrested two left-leaning Canadians — one of them a filmmaker specializing in highly un-Islamic movies about sexual politics — and implausibly announced that they were members of the Brotherhood, the conservative Islamist group backing the deposed president, Mohamed Morsi.
If the NYT finds it "implausible" for a gay filmmaker to, if not be an official member of the MuBros, to at least be in synch with its thinking vis-à-vis "Zionism," it has obviously never heard of the entity called Queers Against Israeli Apartheid.
