U.S. willing to give billions in aid to MB terrorists but cuts aid to Egyptian military fighting terrorists
With everything that has gone on in the last 4 years, you’d almost think the U.S. is trying to foster Islamist terrorism and repressive regimes. They called the Muslim Brotherhood — the parent organization of both Al Qaeda and Hamas — moderates and reformers and were happy to give Morsi billions as he cauterized democratic reforms, fostered terrorist groups, imposed medieval restrictions on women, persecuted and murdered Christians wholesale, jailed journalists and shut down the free press, got huggy kissy with Iran, made increasingly threatening remarks toward Israel and more…but now that the Egyptian people, with the help of the military rose up and overthrew Morsi and that the Egyptian military is going after terrorist groups in the Sinai and elsewhere, is working closely with Israel against terrorism, working to put together a truly representative Constitution, restored freedom of the press and a variety of other pro-democracy moves….the U.S. is cutting off aid.
The United States is cutting hundreds of millions of dollars in aid to Egypt in response to the ouster of President Mohamed Morsi and the crackdown by the military-backed government on his supporters.
The US provides $1.5 billion in aid each year to Egypt. While the State Department did not provide a dollar amount of what was being withheld, most of it was expected to be military aid.
