    Thanks to Obama’s (Clinton, Kerry, Hayden, et. al.) infatuation with the Muslim Brotherhood, the US has lost any influence with Egypt. I do not read Arabic but the shield must say: Lifetime Award for service to Islam.

    • Richard, the history of the MB is appalling. Without the president of this country growing up with Muslims and in Muslims countries, this could not have happened.

  • Every other day in Egypt under Morsi there would be calls to attack Israel. Israel had been preparing for such an attack.

    Today the Egyptian Army closed the crossing into Gaza. They remember how Hamas supported Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood.

    • findalis, one of the men arrested from the MB leadership, Rashad Bayoumi, was the one who said, after Morsi was elected, we will never sit down with Israel.
