In addition to raining spiteful criticism upon Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, the man now being hailed as the new “Leader of the Free World” (a position formerly held by American presidents, even Jimmy Carter), President Obama has also chosen to petulantly ignore Egyptian President General Abdel Fatah el-Sisi as he demonstrates his own leadership abilities on the world stage.
For years, Egypt and Israel have been our strongest (and perhaps only) allies in the Middle East. We have given Egypt upwards of $1.5 BILLION annually, second only to Israel in foreign aid commitments.
But this was before the newly elected President Obama went to the University of Cairo in 2009 where he ignited the Arab Spring uprisings, challenged terrorists to undermine existing Middle East rulers and in particular, supported Muslim Brotherhood candidate Mohammad Morsi as Egypt’s next president.
Then came the fiery pictures of rioting in Cairo’s Tahrir Square which accompanied the ouster of Morsi and the installation of Egypt’s current President General Abdel Fatah el-Sisi. In 2013, TIME magazine named el-Sisi their “Person of the year” as he became the first president in Egyptian history to attend the Christmas Mass and give a speech at the Coptic Orthodox Christmas service in Cairo, where he called for unity and wished Christians a merry Christmas. But President Obama–a professed Christian—continues his petty show of displeasure with the nation which dared toss his hand-picked thug, Mohammed Morsi, from office.
Of course, el-Sisi is a Muslim…as are 90% of his fellow Egyptians. But he does not condone the ideology of radical Islam and has taken on the Muslim Brotherhood while “revolutionizing” Islam within his country. As Egypt is bordered by ISIS terrorists in neighboring Libya and elsewhere and is threatened by Turkey, it is a courageous stand.
Bassam Tawil of the “Gatestone Institute” reports: “The Muslim Brotherhood knows that behind the scenes U.S. President Obama supports their movement, especially the branch in Egypt seeking to overthrow President Sisi. This approval from the U.S. encourages the Muslim Brotherhood to be even more determined to subvert and undermine Egypt’s stability, sabotage its economic rehabilitation, and destroy the el-Sisi regime.”
And while US influence in the Middle East dwindles, Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Kuwait have pledged billions of dollars in aid to the new Egyptian government. Russian President Vladimir Putin found time for a two-day visit to Cairo, presenting a special token of his appreciation–a Russian-made Kalashnikov AK-47–to his host, President el-Sisi.
In the meantime, All is Quiet on the Western Front. The President leaves for another fund raising trip in California and a round or two of golf. The First Lady will be spending the children’s spring break visiting Japan and Cambodia, promoting the cause of education for girls. There are conflicting reports that say the First Mother-in-Law and First Daughters will “not be traveling with her.” It is unclear whether this means they will stay at home, or just travel in their own 747’s. It’s been done before, you know. Even the First Dog, “Bo,” had his own VTOL MV-22 Osprey military aircraft for a trip to Martha’s Vineyard.
