On Obamas Jewel of DenialTopics: Egypt, Political News and commentaries
George Neumayr manages to succinctly sum up Barack Obama's foreign policy in the Middle East in just one short paragraph:
"This is pathetic. Absolutely no American interest can explain it. The only explanation is Obama's excessive regard for Islam. He was bound and determined to "reset" relations with it, and he got one in the form of scorched embassies, dead diplomats, and a radicalized Egypt, bloodied and torn."Neumayr writes at The American Spectator that Obama's Islamophilia contributed to the mess in Egypt (emphasis below - mine):
At the root of America's disastrous policy on Egypt lies Obama's Islamophilia, a stance which leads him to mistake friends for enemies and enemies for friends. Even at this late date, he can't make the most basic distinctions between pro-American Egyptian military leaders and anti-American Islamic terrorists. His foreign policy rests not on America's interests but on politically correct prattle about a non-existent Islamic spring.Take the time to read the whole thing.
According to Senator Patrick "Leaky" Leahy, the Obama administration has suspended aid to Egypt. Naturally, the GOP's reflexively interventionist busybodies support this decision. "For us to sit by and watch this happen is a violation of everything that we stood for," babbled Senator John McCain on CNN's "State of the Union." What exactly is "everything that we stood for"? Egging on the Muslim Brotherhood? Delivering up a U.S. ally of three decades to a jihadist mob? Protecting democratically elected terrorists who once in power moved to destroy democracy and persecute Christians?
Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia has promised to compensate Egypt for any aid that Western countries might withdraw in response to the harsh tactics employed by Egypt's leaders to quell the violent protests and church burnings by the Muslim Brotherhood and its fellow terrorist supporters.
