Kedar: Egypt’s Question of Sovereignty


.

The discussion in Egypt about American “foreign funding” can also point in the opposite direction, when spokesmen for the secular parties, who are accused of accepting funds from the United States for their organizations, accuse the Muslim Brotherhood of taking funds from an “external source”. An “external source”, in this framework is a code name for two bodies: Iran and Al-Qaeda.

It is interesting that there are Americans who express understanding of the Egyptian action against the foreign-funded NGOs. One of them said this week: “What would we do if another country was getting involved in our internal affairs?” Others in Washington are trying to solve the problem quietly, behind the scenes, in a way that puts the United States in the role of the responsible adult, who on one hand continues to feed the naughty Egyptians, and on the other hand returns the 19 American citizens who were only guilty of seeking to bring Western democracy to an Arab country, which chose incidentally, the Islam of the Middle East.

However, we must remember that Israel is in the same boat as Egypt. Who funds the New Israel Fund? Who clumsily interferes in the democratic process in Israel? Who funds the organizations that dull the Jewish and Zionist character of Israel? Who pours money into a “peace” plan the sole purpose of which is to weaken the stamina of the people who dwell in Zion?

A country that compromises its independence and sovereignty, and behaves like a beggar in the souk has no one to blame but itself when others come to stir its pot.
