The extreme dislike in Egypt for U.S. ambassador Anne Patterson — widely seen as a Muslim Brotherhood stooge — continues to manifest itself.
Youm 7, a popular newspaper in Egypt (the sixth most accessed website in the nation according to Alexa), conducted a survey this morning asking its readers “Do you support the call to kick U.S. Ambassador Anne Patterson out because she interfered in Egyptian affairs?”
A whopping 87.93% said yes, 10.54% said no, and 1.53% were indifferent.
Considering that Youm 7’s audience are secular-leaning, this further validates the notion that it is the moderates of Egypt that dislike the U.S. ambassador– not the Islamists, who benefit from her.
Moreover, the latest pro-Brotherhood accusation that is being leveled against Patterson is that she is the main source that has led the Western media to portray the June 30 Revolution — which was supported, and continues to be supported, by millions of Egyptians — as an illegal military coup.
According to recent statements by Egyptian journalist Abdullah al-Sanawi made on live TV, “Anne Patterson’s presence in Egypt has become a great burden for America, and Patterson should be admitted into a mental hospital for her deeds are full of bloodshed and the Obama administration is in a very awkward position in front of the whole world, the [U.S.] Congress and the Pentagon.”
