U.S. Will ‘Pressure’ Egypt on Behalf of Brotherhood, Says U.S. Ambassador

Print Friendly

Evidence that the Obama administration is unhappy with the Egyptian people’s liberation from Muslim Brotherhood rule continues to emerge.  As reported today by Youm 7, according to Muhammad Heikal — “the Arab world’s most respected political commentator” and for some 50 years a political insider — soon after the overthrow of Morsi, U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson assured Hisham Qandil, who hours ago was Egypt’s Prime Minister, that “there are many forms of pressure, and America holds the keys to the Gulf.”

Such blatantly pro-Muslim Brotherhood assurances by Patterson are consistent with many of her other actions in Egypt, which have led most Egyptians, including politicians and activists, to refer to her as a Brotherhood stooge.  Among other things, in the days leading to June 30, she called on Egyptians not to protest — including by meeting with the Coptic Pope and asking him to urge the nation’s Christian minority not to oppose the Brotherhood, even though Christians have naturally been the most to suffer under Morsi, especially in the context of “blasphemy” accusations.

Thus, and once again, the Obama administration makes indubitably clear that its primary interest in Egypt is to see the Muslim Brotherhood stay in power, the Egyptian people’s will — the will of tens of millions of secularists, liberals, moderates, and Christians — be damned.

      Yes, he’s quite diabolical, managing to do all sorts of things in plain view.

    Maybe the US is pretending to back the MB having realized that visible US support is the kiss of death in the Arab world. Bravo!!

    I wonder how much money the Brotherhood Gang have stolen from the Egyptian people in the few days notice they received that the end was coming? Sadly they will remain a terror to ordinary Egyptians for many, many years – perhaps even attacking any revival in tourism as a means of keeping unstability. Certainly the West needs to keep its nose out, with any demands for elections etc for some years.

    We have a muslim brotherhood problem right here at home in OUR government, be VERY afraid folks as these assclowns WILL KILL you for not converting to their CULT!

    Egypt should haul her off to the airport and tell her if she comes back to Egypt they’ll arrest her as an enemy of the people. Everything Obama touches turns to poison, and his meddling Ambassador should let the people decide.

    Obama needs to keep his stinking nose where it belongs

    • voncile fullwood

      He can’t keep his nose out of every body affairs not even to the American people

  • Dkerns

    obama is not only anti American he is the ANTICHRIST, burn in HELL obama

    • Jim Morgan

      last time I checked, the Anti-Christ was supposed to look good
      and bring the world together (even if only for a short time) and since
      Obama surfaced in 2008 he has been race-baiting and diving the country
      and the world…..he is hated by too many to be the Anti-Christ

      • voncile fullwood

        no! he is not the anti-christ only the the fore-runner getting ready for the anti-christ to make himself appear

  • mensageira22

    U.S. Please stay out of other nations rights to vote.Obama should keep his nose at the white house and deal with many problems facing the US today.

    • Betty4440

      you are so right he is always sticking his nose were it should not be. USA Betty

    …And they say you shouldn’t point out Obama’s Jihadist leanings.

    I’ve
    noticed people are taking a Christian approach to Obama…some say he is
    “the Second Coming of Christ”, while others say he is “the
    Anti-Christ.”…ok, here are my thoughts….he OBVIOUSLY isn’t Christ
    (or even a prophet of the Christian
    god)…I don’t think he falls under the description of the Anti-Christ
    either…last time I checked, the Anti-Christ was supposed to look good
    and bring the world together (even if only for a short time) and since
    Obama surfaced in 2008 he has been race-baiting and diving the country
    and the world…..

    I submit to you, what about you take the
    Christian faith out of the Obama equation…what if you replace that was
    Islam? Perhaps say The 12th Imam….follow me on this….

    According to Twelver Shi’ite doctrine, he is an actual historical
    personality and is the current Imam and the promised Mahdi. He will
    reestablish the rightful governance of Islam and replete the earth with
    justice and peace.
    I have noticed over the last 5 years, his main
    concern is making sure that Islam is in control throughout the world,
    even if he doesn’t say it in words, his actions say differently…

      My thinking is that the Christian Anti-Christ IS the muslim Mahdi.
