The Egyptian people, not liking Mr. Morsi's Islamist agenda, ultimately overthrew him, and the Egyptian military moved to take over the government to create stability. However, our administration refused to assist the Egyptian military.
News of the meeting between the Brotherhood allies and the Obama administration caused anger among many in the Egyptian government, which is fighting furiously to crackdown on the Islamist group and its supporters.
“These statements are incomprehensible to me, we do not understand that there will be such a communication with the elements involved in terrorist acts to intimidate the Egyptians,” Egyptian Foreign Minister Sameh Shukri was quoted as saying in the regional press following the Free Beacon’s initial report.
“The Brotherhood is not a political party,” but “a terrorist organization,” Shukri said.
You really have to wonder what is up with our foreign policy? We seem to involve ourselves with destabilizing stable situations in Libya (backing the take down of Qadaffi) and Iraq (with the American pullout), yet stay uninvolved when it comes to backing those who would try to maintain safety for all religious minorities, such as current Egyptian President el-Sisi.
Now we have this story: ISIS Beheads Coptic Christians, El-Sisi Vows to ‘Avenge’ Murders, with a terrorist seeming to echo views expressed by our President at a recent prayer breakfast:
All of the killers wore black except the spokesman, who, wearing camouflage, talks in English and sounds American . . . “Safety for you crusaders is something you can only wish for,” he says. . . . “And we will conquer Rome, by Allah’s permission,” the American-accented narrator says, pointing his dagger at the sea.The White House responds by calling for a "political solution" in Libya. . . . a solution to a crisis that WE helped to create.
One could wonder what has informed our foreign policy . . . but some of our "extremists" already know.
