We Should Cut Off All American Aid To Egypt Until The Dictator In Charge Is Out Of Power


Hosni Mubarak was a secular, largely friendly to America dictator. When his people rose up against him, we chose to support the people. That’s understandable. We’re America. It’s in our blood and it chafes us when we feel compelled to deal with dictators.

However, Hosni Mubarak was replaced by radical, anti-American, terrorist friendly Mohammed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood. In Morsi’s defense, he won an election. However, he’s tried to rewrite the rules and create an extreme new Constitution to cement himself and the Muslim Brotherhood in power.

Barack Obama seems to be perfectly fine with this.

If we supported the Egyptian people in overthrowing Hosni Mubarak, then we should certainly support them in ousting Mohammed Morsi. At a minimum, we can at least show our support for democracy by cutting off all funds for Egypt.

That one move could be the difference between freedom and slavery for the Egyptian people and the difference between a having a friendly, democratic ally in Egypt and a hostile dictatorship. If Barack Obama won’t do the right thing, Republicans in Congress should show some leadership for once and force the issue.
