White House Washes Hands of Egyptian Power Grab

Hosni Murbarak dictator and Quasi American ally bad.

Mohamed Morsi Muslim brotherhood dictator American hater good.

At least this is Obama’s additude about Egypt.

 

In the latest iteration of Obama’s “What the Hell” foreign policy, the White House is turning a blind eye to Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi’s assumption of near-total power.

According to White House spokesman Jay Carney:

“As I tried to explain yesterday, we need to step back and look at the transformation that has been occurring in Egypt since the revolution began there. We have raised our concerns about the decisions and declarations that were made on November 22nd … We believe firmly that this needs to be resolved internally as part of a transition to democracy and the building of institutions that create checks and balances in an Egypt that will have, as a government, an entity that is more responsive to the will of the people in Egypt and more democratic.”

So the Administration that has intervened in at least half a dozen countries, fomenting rebellions, arming those who would overthrow existing governments, that engaged in an undeclared war against Libya, that gave heavy weapons and funding to Muslim extremists who overthrew Gadhaffi then turned around and murdered our ambassador and other personnel, that helped bring the Muslim Brotherhood to power in Egypt amid violence and bloodshed with the promise that we were creating “democracy” — that same Administration has decided Morsi’s declaration of absolute power is an “internal matter.”

Translation: Either Morsi is in exactly the position President Obama wants him in, or Morsi has won the support of Iran and Russia, and Obama’s afraid to oppose him.

Perhaps it’s six of one, half dozen of the other.

So far, the Egyptian people may have protested, but they have yet to shake Morsi’s faith in his own power.

So we took out a dictator, let the Muslim Brotherhood weasel its way into the new government, looked the other way as they rigged the vote, and now will look the other way again as Morsi assumes the new dictatorship.

If Obama thinks this will make Morsi his ally when it comes to the big final showdown with Russia over Obama’s warmongering in Syria, then he really doesn’t understand his own people.

The Muslim Brotherhood has never hidden the fact that it hopes one day for world domination and the restoration of the caliphate.

Obama apparently still thinks that he is going to be the caliph, when it’s Morsi calling the shots.

US House Blocks Obama Administration’s Plan to Send $450 Million to Egypt

This is from The Blaze.

It is time to stop all money going to all Muslim Countries.

Why send Muslims money to use to kill Americans.

If you hate America and Americans you do not need or get our money.

WASHINGTON (TheBlaze/AP) — The Obama administration’s plan to transfer $450 million in cash to Egypt hit a roadblock Friday as a top House committee chairwoman blocked the move, saying it warrants further review.

Rep. Kay Granger, R-Texas, said the State Department had notified Congress of plans to move the money to the new government of President Mohammed Morsi as Cairo struggles economically. The money is part of the nearly $1 billion in debt relief that President Barack Obama had promised the Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt earlier this year.

“This proposal comes to Congress at a point when the U.S.-Egypt relationship has never been under more scrutiny, and rightly so,” the chairwoman of the Appropriations subcommittee on foreign operations said in a statement. “I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time. … I have placed a hold on these funds.”

The relationship between the United States and Egypt has been rocky since the overthrow of U.S. ally President Hosni Mubarak last year. The Egyptian government angered Washington when it cracked down on numerous democracy advocates and groups, including three U.S.-funded nongovernmental organizations, earlier this year.

It also doesn’t help matters that Morsi has promised to push the U.S. to release convicted radical Islamist terrorist Omar Abdel Rahman, also known as the “Blind Sheikh.” In fact, when he was elected, Morsi called the Blind Sheikh’s release a matter of great importance to him.

In an article with the headline “Morsi‘s Election Can’t Erase Radical Record,” the Algemeiner lays out just a portion of the Egyptian leader’s radical roots:

In a 2005 article touting Muslim Brotherhood parliamentary candidates, Morsi invoked the Brotherhood’s motto in making the case that “Islam is the solution”:

“God is our goal. The Messenger is our example. The Quran is our constitution; Jihad is our way and death for the sake of God the highest aspiration.”

He repeated that theme during a campaign appearance last May, the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI) showed, leading the crowd in chanting “The Quran is our constitution. The Prophet Muhammad is our leader. Jihad is our path. And death for the sake of Allah is our most lofty aspiration.”

That could help explain his affection for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas, which was created to be a terrorist branch of the Brotherhood, and which has a series of anti-Semitic statements in its charter.

More recently, demonstrators breached the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to protest an anti-Islam video, and some in Congress have called for cutting off aid. The United States provides Egypt with $1.55 billion annually – $250 million in economic aid and $1.3 billion in military aid.

The cash transfer would have come from money that had already been appropriated.

A senior State Department official said the United States remains committed to a democratic transition in Egypt and still sees support for economic growth as a vital way to protect peace and security. The official said the administration would work with Congress in the next days and weeks to make the case that the budget is in U.S. interests.

The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the ongoing negotiations and discussed the situation on condition of anonymity.

Last December, Congress made foreign assistance to Egypt, including the military financing, contingent on a determination that the government “is supporting the transition to civilian government including holding free and fair elections; implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association and religion and due process of law.”

Egyptian President: U.S. Must Respect Arab History and Culture, Even if It Conflicts With Western Values

Egyptian President Morsi Outlines Future of U.S. Arab Relations in New York Times Article

Newly-elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi granted a 90-minute interview to the New York Times ahead of his first presidential visit to the United States this week, laying out the changing face of U.S.-Arab relations.

Egypt’s first democratically-elected president, Morsi has been affiliated with the Muslim Brotherhood for decades.  In fact, according to the New York Times, Morsi even spent time in jail during Mubarak’s reign for his affiliation with the then-suppressed group.

“I grew up with the Muslim Brotherhood,” Morsi reportedly explained proudly. “I learned my principles in the Muslim Brotherhood. I learned how to love my country with the Muslim Brotherhood. I learned politics with the Brotherhood. I was a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.”

The New York Times has more on how Morsi says U.S.-Arab relations must change:

He said it was up to Washington to repair relations with the Arab world and to revitalize the alliance with Egypt, long a cornerstone of regional stability.

If Washington is asking Egypt to honor its treaty with Israel, he said, Washington should also live up to its own Camp David commitment to Palestinian self-rule. He said the United States must respect the Arab world’s history and culture, even when that conflicts with Western values.

[…]

If you want to judge the performance of the Egyptian people by the standards of German or Chinese or American culture, then there is no room for judgement,” he said. “When the Egyptians decide something, probably it is not appropriate for the U.S.  When the Americans decide something, this, of course, is not appropriate for Egypt.”

He suggested that Egypt would not be hostile to the West, but would not be as compliant as Mr. Mubarak either.

Successive American administrations essentially purchased with American taxpayer money the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region,” he said, by backing dictatorial governments over popular opposition and supporting Israel over the Palestinians. [Emphasis added]

When confronted about essentially removing any counterweight to his absolute authority by replacing the military leaders with men of his choosing, Morsi responded: “We are behaving according to the Egyptian people’s choice and will, nothing else — is it clear?”

Morsi also praised President Obama’s decision to act “decisively and quickly” in support of the so-called “Arab Spring” revolutions throughout the region, according to the New York Times.  Apparently, Egyptians just want “the right…to enjoy the same freedoms that Americans have.”

One of the major topics of discussion seemed to be the Camp David Accords, and how Morsi believes the United States is not holding up its end of the bargain.  Responsible for decades of peace between Egypt and Israel, Morsi claimed the treaty is “unfulfilled” because Palestinians have not yet achieved statehood.

“As long as peace and justice are not fulfilled for the Palestinians, then the treaty remains unfulfilled,” he stated, though he did not clarify what that means in terms of actual policy changes.

Morsi also discussed his time in California as a graduate student, reportedly saying “Go Trojans!” with a smile.

Apparently the Egyptian president praised American work ethic, punctuality, and time management.  When the translator went so far as to relate that Morsi “learned a lot” in the States, however, the president was quick to clarify.  Morsi interjected, saying he learned a lot “scientifically,“ before lamenting loose Western morals and ”naked restaurants” like Hooters.
