Terrific idea…now do it, Re: Walsh: Withdraw Egypt Aid, Washington Free Beacon, July 12, 2012

It is glaringly obvious that the Muslim Brotherhood and Mohammed Morsi, its representative who was recently elected President of Egypt, simply cannot be trusted to act in the best interests of the United States and that their election is a direct threat to peace and security in the Middle East and the national interests and national security of the U.S. Their values and beliefs and the Islamic imperatives they operate under are also unacceptable and repugnant to Americans and totally contradictory to American values and beliefs and the American way of life.

Thirty-five members of the United States Congress, led by Representative Joe Walsh of Illinois, have just signed a letter calling upon their leaders to re-examine the two billion dollars in aid the U.S. gives to Egypt every year in light of the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi coming to power.

Rightly so. Two billion dollars is a great deal of money, money that comes straight from the pockets of American taxpayers. Why should American taxpayers pay to prop up governments, countries, that pose a direct and serious threat to America and American’s, who, like the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi, essentially hate and are disgusted by everything America and Americans stand for and by the American way of life and want nothing more than to conquer America and turn it into an Islamic country governed by Islamic law, Sharia?

They shouldn’t. Aside from anything else, sending American tax dollars to Egypt, to the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi, is tantamount to using them to cut Americans own throats. Since Americans aren’t suicidal that makes no sense at all.

The members of Congress wrote “Every tax dollar that goes to propping up a government directly opposed to American interests is a tax dollar wasted,” and “That money should instead be put towards paying down our national debt or providing tax relief to struggling American families.”

Absolutely right.

Representative Walsh also said that Egypt must maintain a peaceful relationship with Israel. The Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi’s hatred and revulsion for Israel is well-documented and there are serious, well-founded concerns that they will try to modify, abrogate or tear up the peace agreement between Egypt and Israel and/or act to make it easier for terrorists to sow destruction and death in Israel e.g. blow up people and property, thus sparking a war in the Middle East and beyond, a war which Israel could conceivably lose and which the United States will most assuredly be dragged into.  Walsh said “Israel is a critical strategic partner for the U.S. in the Middle East. Only a strong, secure Israel will bring lasting peace to the Middle East.” That’s absolutely right too. When Egypt threatens the strategic interests and national security of Israel it is threatening the strategic interests and national security of the United States as well. If Egypt’s actions spark war in the Middle East, America and Americans will pay a terrible price, make no mistake. A strong, secure Israel is essential to peace in the Middle East and when Egypt threatens that it also threatens the United States.

Trust the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi?

No, no, no.

Nothing they have done merits it…nothing they believe in merits it.

American aid to Egypt should be re-examined. Whatever aid is granted in the future (and it should certainly not be two billion dollars annually) should come with strict conditions, conditions which relate directly to the strategic and national security interests of the United States and to American beliefs and values.


It is Americans taxpayers money after all.

One more thought…why on earth has U.S. President Obama invited Morsi to visit him at the White House in September? It wouldn’t be because of his well-known antipathy to Israel or because he is a closet Islamist and anti-American and anti-Semitic ideologue who sympathizes with and endorses the Muslim Brotherhood and Morsi’s aspirations and beliefs would it? Given Obama’s own history and actions that is perfectly plausible.
