Egypt Parliament Threatens to Reject US Aid and Halt Gas Exports to ‘Zionist’ Enemy, Calls For Expulsion of Israeli Ambassador


It’s amazing what “freedom” has brought to Egypt. Rejecting $1 billion in US aid would almost be laughable, if the possible implications were not so serious. Last month the Muslim Brotherhood had apparently come to the conclusion that it was Halal to extort the United States by threatening, for all intents and purposes, to wage war against Israel if America cut off aid to Egypt. Now they’re threatening to reject it all together, and all this while making it loud and clear that Egypt will “never be the friend, partner or ally of the Zionist entity”, even moving to halt all gas exports to “the first enemy of Egypt”.  It almost seems to me like the Islamists are itching for that war after all.  Sorry, Jimmy Carter. Expect “relations” to deteriorate even further once the Islamists finally gain control of the Egyptian military …

“The Egyptian parliament may vote on a measure that would cut $1 billion in U.S. foreign assistance.

A resolution was introduced in parliament on Sunday, The Associated Press reported. The vote, which would be largely symbolic, reflects the growing tensions between the United States and the newly installed Islamist-dominated parliament over the arrest of American foreign aid workers last month.

The U.S. threatened to withhold foreign assistance from the Egyptian government unless the aid workers were released and cleared of all charges.

Following the release of the aid workers on March 1, Egyptian lawmakers moved toward a vote of no-confidence in the government of Prime Minister Kamal el-Ganzouri after complaining that the U.S. has no respect for Egyptian sovereignty.” Source – The Jewish Daily Forward.

Egypt Calls for Expulsion of Israeli Ambassador – “Egypt’s Islamist-dominated parliament on Monday called for the expulsion of the Israeli ambassador from Cairo and the recall of Egypt’s envoy to the Jewish state. According to a report in AFP, which cited the Egyptian MENA news agency, the parliament unanimously approved a text prepared by the Arab affairs committee of the People’s Assembly calling for ‘the expulsion from Egypt of the Israeli ambassador and the recall of Egypt’s envoy from Tel Aviv.’ According to the text approved on Monday, MPs also called for a halt to gas exports to Israel. ‘Egypt will never be the friend, partner or ally of the Zionist entity which we consider as the first enemy of Egypt and the Arab nation,’ read the text.” Read more.
