Why are we giving money to Egypt? The short answer is very simple–it keeps the Suez Canal open. However, giving Egypt aid is beginning to look look like a losing proposition.
Paul Mirengoff at Power Line posted an article yesterday about an interview the New York Times did with Egyptian President Morsi. It is no secret that President Morsi is a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Has the press bothered to see what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for? The creed of the Muslim Brotherhood is: “God is our objective; the Koran is our law; the Prophet is our leader; jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.” The goal of the Muslim Brotherhood is a world-wide caliphate under sharia law. According to the documents introduced in the Holy Land Foundation Trial (the first part of the documents are in Arabic, the second part is the English translation), the Muslim Brotherhood has a plan to turn America into an Islamic state (part of the world-side caliphate). Part of that plan is to bring Muslim Brotherhood leaders (known and unknown) close the the centers of power in America. Please note the following:
Breitbart.com reported on Friday that Bill Clinton will be hosting Egyptian President Morsi at the eighth annual meeting of Bill Clinton’s Clinton Global Initiative in New York next week. President Morsi will be a ‘featured participant’ in the event.
The article at Power Line reports:
Morsi told the Times that it is up to Washington to repair relations with the Arab world and to revitalize its alliance with Egypt. Morsi added that the U.S. needs to fundamentally change its approach to the Arab world, showing greater respect for its values and helping build a Palestinian state. “Successive American administrations essentially purchased with American taxpayer money the dislike, if not the hatred, of the peoples of the region,” he explained.
If American taxpayer money has caused the Arab world to dislike us, why are we still giving them money?
