Protests in Egypt: Your experiences
What is wrong with this picture?
“Sadat knew the Brothers were bad news, but — much like today’s geopolitical big thinkers — he hubristically believed he could control the damage, betting that the Muslims Brotherhood would be more a thorn in the side of the jilted Nasserite Communists than a nuisance for the successor regime. Brotherhood eventually murdered Sadat in a 1981 coup attempt — in accordance with a fatwa issued by Sheikh Omar Abdel Rahman. Does US think what Anwar Sadat thought: Hey, we can work with these guys” Andrew C. McCarthy
Morsi also called upon United States to release a well-known terrorist, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman who is serving life in prison for plotting a series of bombings and assassinations and his role in planning the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center in New York City.
What, it might be wondered, will President Obama say about all this when he meets Morsi in March? Will United States continue sending American taxpayers money to regime that clearly support terrorism.
