El-Sisi Slams US for Abandoning the Egyptian People

When he was pressed on his presidential ambitions, he responded that he is not the type who "aspire for authority."
According to Al Ahram, more than 250 Egyptian civilians have been killed since Morsi's overthrow by El-Sisi. A considerable record for a man without presidential ambitions…

According to Al Ahram, more than 250 Egyptian civilians have been killed since Morsi's overthrow by El-Sisi. A considerable record for a man without presidential ambitions…

Egypt’s armed forces chief General Abdel Fattah El-Sisi lashed out at the U.S., urging the Administration to pressure the Muslim Brothers to end their resistance to the new rule.

In an interview with the Washington Post, El Sisi—who led the military coup that ousted President Mohamed Morsi on july 3—is warning of police action that would put an end to the protests.

Despite the $1.3 billion in military aid the U.S. gives Egypt every year, El-Sisi accused President Barack Obama of abandoning Egypt.

“You left the Egyptians, you turned your back on the Egyptians and they won’t forget that. Now you want to continue turning your backs on Egyptians?” El-Sisi asked.

“The U.S. administration has a lot (of) leverage and influence with the Muslim Brotherhood and I’d really like the US administration to use this leverage with them to resolve the conflict,” he said, echoing accessions from the right in America, that Obama is still committed to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, despite their loss of popularity.

According to El-Sisi, the task of “removing” the Brotherhood protesters would not be assigned to the army.

“Whoever will clean these squares or resolve these sit-ins will not be the military,” he said, alluding to recorded massacres of unarmed Muslim Brothers by military units shooting into civilian crowds. “There is a civil police and they are assigned to these duties,” he clarified, shutting the doors a tad after the horses have all left the barn.

“On the 26th of [July], more than 30 million people went out onto the streets to give me support. These people are waiting for me to do something.”

According to Al Ahram, more than 250 Egyptian civilians have been killed since Morsi’s overthrow.

When asked whether he would seek the presidency, El-Sisi was vague:

“I want to say that the most important achievement in my life is to overcome this circumstance, [to ensure] that we live peacefully, to go on with our road map and to be able to conduct the coming elections without shedding one drop of Egyptian blood,” he said.

When he was pressed on his presidential ambitions, he responded that he is not the type who “aspire for authority.”

If ever there was a man with self-awareness issues… How does someone without aspirations for authority depose a legally elected president and impose a military junta in his place? Somebody hand that man a mirror…

In response to the obvious authority aspirations thing, El-Sisi defended his decision to overthrow Morsi, saying: “I expected if we didn’t intervene, it would have turned into a civil war. Four months before he left, I told Morsi the same thing.”

Except that now he has a real civil war on his hands – and it’s all the fault of the Muslim Brothers-loving Obama Administration.

“What I want you to know and I want the American reader also to know is that this is a free people who rebelled against an unjust political rule, and this free people needs your support,” urged the junta leader who shuns authority.

If you have access to Woody Allen’s last truly funny movie, “Bananas,” now would be a good time to watch it again…

    Many conservative Americans understand that the overthrowing of Morsi was NOT a military coup, but a military response to the will of Eygptians who don't want to be ruled by an Islamic dictator. The American media presents it as a coup. We know Obama supports Islic radicals, and we want Obama gone. We wish the US military would help us oust Marxist Obama, the way your military ousted Morsi. Real Americans (not Marxists liberals who put Obama in office) DO understand and we stand with you Eygpt! We also stand with Israel!

  2. This is amazing. If only Israeli leaders realized that obamba and the USA admin is Bad the entire Middle East, Israel can actually open a real dialogue with the Egyptians and help them out towards real freedom while BOTH rejecting the USA trying to control and mess with both countries.

  3. General El-Sissi who is trying to stop all the terrorist in Egypt and Sinai with the permission of Isreal. Without the help of the United States He is a hero against dictatorial power. I wish we should have had a general like him against Hitler.

    Gen El sisy protected the course of democracy in Egypt.. he has no greed in authority, idiot.. he tuely has an endless patriotism which was the man motive to maintain the Egyptians' free will to determine their own destiny and depose Mursy >> what happened in Egypt is a an actual revolution where around 33 millions protestors came out in streets to put an end to brotherhood 's corruption! no wonder u think the Egyptian Gen was motivated by his aspiration to authority , u lack such patrotistic models in Isreal..

    I can assure you that Yori Yanover does not speak for Israelis. Since he became editor of the online edition, the reporting has significantly deteriorated.

  7. There are no good choices for Israel in Egypt – only bad and worse. Under Mubarak, as much hatred as there might have been, at least there was stability. The American support for the ouster of Morisi seems to recognize that fact, uncomfortable as it might be.
