Mideast: As the president sneaks more money in the budget for Egypt, the Muslim Brotherhood thugs he helped install in Cairo show their gratitude by threatening to attack Israel.
For three decades, the U.S. essentially paid Egypt not to attack our closest ally in the region. The policy worked to maintain peace. But Obama nullified that deal by backing Islamist revolutionaries against reliably pro-U.S. Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak. Now the bribe has lost its effect.
The new Egyptian leadership, led by the virulently anti-Jewish Muslim Brotherhood, this week issued a warning to Washington that it should understand that "what was acceptable before the revolution is no longer." It made clear that this includes the peace treaty with Israel.
The warning came in response to calls by Congress to suspend aid to Cairo unless it releases jailed pro-democracy American aid workers.
The U.S. sends $1.3 billion in military aid to Egypt each year. A top Brotherhood official warned that the new regime would tear up the 30-year peace treaty with Israel if that aid was cut.
"We have been told that fear of losing U.S. aid will constrain Egypt," said Mideast expert Barry Rubin. "But we are now seeing that this simply isn't true. What happens when the Egyptian government helps Hamas fight Israel?"
This has been the plan of the new ruling Islamists all along. The Brotherhood, which created Hamas, backs Palestinian terrorists. And they have already turned a blind eye to, if not orchestrated, several attacks on Israel from the demilitarized Sinai.

Big Time Shakedown
Can we call it blackmail or will that be called racist?
IDK who was the "expert" who said so to this "expert." The fact is a lousy billion more or less will mean nothing to an islamic Egypt. They can get ten times as much any day from Saudi.
Obama: Pay no attention to the turbaned guy behind the curtain. This is the Arab Spring after all...
Today marks the beginning of the USA giving Islamic Terrorists weapons and money in a blackmail exchange.
Historically it is good to keep in mind that payments to Islamic terrorists called the Barbary Pirates represented the main outlay of Federal payouts during the Jefferson Administration.
Thomas Jefferson put his foot down, will Barack 0bama?
obama’s chickens will N-E-V-E-R come home to roost, because the MSM will fend them (chickens) off with every lie and deception possible.
What’s another 800 million. Obama got all the charges dropped against the American and other democracy advocates, didn’t he??
What does he care, it’s after all not his money he’s giving away
Not his money and I was being sarcastic about the charges being dropped but we sure don’t hear a word about that.
The h3ll it did. This was the plan. Now, for Turkey to take its place as the center of the Caliphate......again.
We have the Meccan Kuraysh Arabs, Abbasids and Ottomans, once again. All we need to complete the ‘bridge game’ is the Umayyads of Damascus.
I didn’t know Soros wore a turbin.
Who's going to make it a scandal?
Chickens coming home to roost? The media will be only telling us about an increased availability of eggs and poultry.
I want a President who would immediately upon receiving such a threat, very publicly, announce that Israel's aid would be increased by $1.3 billion. And, sadly, I can only think of one person who would do such a thing and she's not running.
It is not just Egypt, this moron with the Peace Prize has turned the entire Middle East and Northern Africa over to the jihadists. As bad as LBJ, this shmuck.
State-run newspapers splashed accusations of a US plan to spread “anarchy” in Egypt across their front pages on Tuesday, escalating a dispute Washington says must be resolved to ensure their continued military cooperation.
General Martin Dempsey, chairman of the (dis) Joint Chiefs of Staff, told a US Senate hearing on Tuesday he had tried to convince Egypt’s ruling generals of the gravity of the case.
While the White House announced plans on Monday to keep aid to Egypt level with that of recent years, a State Department spokeswoman said that “if we cannot resolve the current impasse it could have implications for this relationship and for our ability to disburse this money.”
Not one dime to Egypt until Egypt improves relations with Israel.
ant, “didnt know Soros wore a turbin.”
Soros, it has been said, would whore a camel and don a burke, if the price was...
Amen! The media will ALWAYS protect the Democrats...ALWAYS!
I just heard a talk radio broadcast with a clip of a State Dep’t spokeschick referring to Israel as “innocent” and condemning terrorist attacks against it. That’ll give Zero something to backpedal from the rest of the week.
antidemocrat - Don’t get me started photoshopping... ;)
This isn’t just Obama’s fault. Most neoconservatives supported the revolutionaries in Algeria, Egypt and Libya. Today the fine folks at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracy and the AEI are pushing for us to attack Syria.
Bill Kristol et all called anyone who opposed these Muslim Brotherhood fronts racists. Of the candidates the media allowed into the debates, only Ron Paul and Michelle Bachmann brought opposed our war for Al Qaeda in the Maghreb against Khadaffi. And only Bachmann mentioned Al Qaeda in her answer and Bill Kristol and the Fox Conservatives never forgave her.
