BITING THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU

US Aid to Egypt Blocked by Republican Congress Following Riots

It took Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi more than 48 hours to condemn the breach of the US embassy premises in Cairo and the removal of the American flag.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair, Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, stands between Egypt and billions in aid.

So the points that we are continuing to make are about the importance of maintaining security, vigilance, working together. That is moving well. And as you know, we are continuing to work with the Hill on the support that we think is important to support those very forces of moderation, change, democracy, openness in Egypt that are very important for defeating extremism of the kind that we saw.

QUESTION: Is that a harder argument to make this week than it was about two weeks ago when some of that roadblock seemed to be moving out of the way?

MS. NULAND: Well, it’s a conversation we obviously have to continue to have, and the Secretary will be having it with the Congress as well this week, we expect. I mean, from where we are sitting, if you look at what happened, not just in Egypt but in other parts of the region where we saw violence, it is those who have the more extreme views who were not successful in some of these electoral contests. And they’re resorting to the street. They’re resorting to violence. And it underscores the message that we’ve been giving that we need to support those who are willing to see change that is truly democratic, that’s truly representative of the will of the people, and that isolates extremism.

    I just called Congresswoman Ros-Lehtinen to thank her for taking this action, and, even though I'm not a constituent, her assistant sounded very pleased to know that so many people appreciate what she's done. In case anyone else wants to call, her phone number is (202) 225-3931.

  6. Where are the Muslims who have come to America looking keeping their women in large bags of fabric and say that they want the freedom of America. There are 57 Muslim countries live in that insame culture somewhere else. America is a Judaic-Christian country and have nothing in common with the tyranny of Islam or for the fact Muhammad.

  7. Chaiya Eitan says:

    YAY! I thank all those lawmakers for getting these talks suspended….and hopefully this will result in totally cutting off aid to Egypt!

  8. Sabra Cadabra says:

    Isn't US aid to Egypt a bribe to keep the peace with Israel?

  9. Anonymous says:

    That's great news, Muslims have to understand that our American customs are not to offend or kill, we can't take the law into our own hands like they seem to do, over what one ignorant person done, its not Americans fault. I'm so glad someone in our government is standing up to the hate that these so called nice people is doing to our embassies, the money we give them could be well spent here in AMERICA! How can you defend a religion when it tells you to kill if you are offended, really Jesus is always degraded and we Christians don't go to American Muslims and start killing them when we were attacked on 9/11, period!

  10. Mouses Minny says:

    Sabra…no…egypt and Israel have a peace treaty due to Israel giving back the Sinai (5 tiimes the size of Israel) first in 1956, then more in the 80's with Carter. If they break the peace, Israel may recapture the land again…they better be careful!

  11. Sabra Cadabra says:

    Yes, but the money to Egypt was started only upon Israel giving back the Sinai — that looks like a sort of bribe to maintain peace.

  12. Lloyd Bergner says:

    Kol Hakavod.

  13. There will never be peace in the world until these Islanimals are at the very least, isolated, away from the human population. SAVAGES!
