Obama Accelerating Aid to Egypt After Islamists Win 72% of Seats in Parliament

This is just unbelievable.  Egypt is getting rewarded for turning to the dark side:

Undersecretary of State Robert Hormats, part of a US delegation that held unprecedented talks last week with Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, said Washington wanted to provide "more immediate benefits" to Egyptians, who earlier this month conducted their first democratic elections in decades.

"During this period, we want to be as supportive as we can. This is an historic moment. Egypt's a country of enormous importance," Hormats said.

Under the plan, some non-urgent US aid slated for other countries - he did not name them - would be redirected to Egypt. And funding in the pipeline for long-term programs in Egypt would be shifted to quick-impact projects, he said.

I don't think Obama could get more idiotic if he tried.


  1. the dark side? that's just pure racism?

    idiotic? You mean strategic. islamists are the new face of the egyptian government, and the US should start dialogue with them if we're going to maintain access to strategic interests like the Suez Canal.

    also no where in that clipping does it mention Obama- you really think he has a say in every grant of foreign aid given? THAT is what is a truly idiotic idea

    1. Radical Islamists and the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood are the ones who are racist. I am not a christian and yet I have no problem with religious christians, just as I would have no problem with religious muslims who weren't vehemently anti-semetic.

      Egypt is on the brink of financial collapse as businesses are moving out of the country in the face of the Islamist takeover. Our money is, in effect, propping up a nation that will undoubtedly be our enemy once the parliament takes power. We gave Castro aid after he took over, how did that work out? US Money doesnt buy friendship if the leaders hate us.

      And this is not just a small grant, this is aid that is being diverted from other countries, other countries that are expecting it. This will create major diplomatic waves, you really dont think Obama didn't approve such a major move?
