Understanding Egypt and our interests
Understanding Egypt our our interests
1. Mubarack was our alley for decades. maintained peace with Israel. In Arab spring, Obama threw him under the bus for Muslim Brotherhood terrorists he prefers. He is trying to deny it now. http://rabbireflects.blogspot.com/2013/07/obama-trying-to-rewrite-history-on-egypt.html Obama must think these terrorists are the community organizers of the Middle East. Why does Obama embrace these thugs and hire some for deep roles in the government? Hillary's #1 aid forever has deep deep family ties to Muslim Brotherhood. http://rabbireflects.blogspot.com/2013/07/movie-muslim-brotherhood-infiltrating.html
2. Morsi was leader of mother lode of all terrorist groups, Muslim brotherhood, calling Jews descendants of apes and pigs, and seen applauding clerics calling for mass murder of Jews, yet Obama saw fit to give his government our latest fighter jets (http://www.foxnews.com/world/2013/01/22/gift-us-f-16-fighter-jets-en-route-to-egypt-amid-criticism/) and billions in aid.. We have written evidence, from 80 boxes of material found in 2004 of the MB's stated designs on exactly how they plan to take over the USA, yet Obama keeps on helping them. http://www.centerforsecuritypolicy.org/2013/05/25/an-explanatory-memorandum-from-the-archives-of-the-muslim-brotherhood-in-america/
3. Don't get excited that the protesters who got Morsi thrown out are big supporters of Israel. But maybe they'll get a more pro USA guy there who is willing to not publicly call Jews pigs. It will help if Obama stops being so enthusiastic about Muslim terrorists.
Ros-Lehtinen to Newsmax: Obama 'Bet on Wrong Folks' in Egypt

The military coup in Egypt shows that “the Obama administration has thoroughly failed when it comes to handling the post-Arab Spring revolution,” Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen tells Newsmax TV.
“They've bet on the wrong folks time and time again,” the Florida Republican tells Newsmax in an exclusive interview. “Many of us in Congress were saying: ‘Guys, look at the Muslim Brotherhood. This is a group that's going to take over — and it's not going to be what you think.’”
On Wednesday, Egyptian Army chief Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi announced that President Mohammed Morsi had been removed and was replaced with the chief justice of the Supreme Constitutional Court. He also suspended the Islamist-backed constitution and called for early presidential elections.
Morsi’s ouster as the nation’s first elected leader comes two years after the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak in another popular uprising.
The Arab world's most populous nation has been in turmoil since the fall of Mubarak as Arab Spring uprisings took hold in early 2011, arousing concern among allies in the West and in Israel, with which Egypt has a 1979 peace treaty.
First elected to the House in 1989, Ros-Lehtinen is the senior woman Republican in the lower chamber. She was chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, and currently is chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Subcommittee on Middle East and South Asia.
“The Obama administration is adrift when it comes to policy in the Middle East or North Africa,” she tells Newsmax. “Morsi came in with the Muslim Brotherhood. What does that mean?
“They were anti-Christian, anti-minority, anti-women — and one year after Morsi won in ‘his election’ and all of the millions of dollars that the Obama administration badly wasted in this government, the people have risen up and said: ‘No, you have failed us. We want you out. We want to try again.’”
The United States sends $1.5 billion annually in military and economic assistance to Egypt.
