US Embassy issues terror warning for Americans in Egypt
The Times of Israel ^ | 29 September 2012 | Yoel Goldman

Posted on 09/29/2012 7:08:03 AM PDT by SE Mom

The US Embassy in Cairo issued a terrorist threat warning on Friday for American citizens living in Egypt.

The diplomatic mission stated on its website that it has “credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting US female missionaries in Egypt.”

The embassy urged US citizens to “exercise vigilance, taking necessary precautions to maintain their personal security.” Americans in Egypt were also advised to maintain valid travel documents and to regularly monitor the US Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website, which lists updated travel warnings and alerts.

Yeah...although further in the article it says:

Also on Friday, the chairwoman of the House of Representatives committee that oversees foreign aid said she would block $450 million in US assistance to Egypt in light of tense relations between the two countries.

This just covered on FOX. She has a hold placed on the funds. My understanding is it is indefinitely.

I heard on fox this morning that its State Dept money and she may not be able to hold it. Essentially just another instance of ignoring the law and Congress.

I'm a God-fearin' woman and I respect religious global outreach work......but if the missionaries involved don't heed the emphatic warning just sent out, and if they aren't out of Dodge by sunset, I'll shed no tears if they become enmeshed in bad outcomes.

Frankly I would issue a warning telling Americans they shouldn’t travel to any Muslim country.

I was in Cairo in 2003 on some business, back when they had a semblance of "stability"....

What a hellhole.....there ain't enough money to make me want to go back.

Aren’t they about 2 weeks late with the warning?

Conversely, having waited to issue this warning, were they actually implying that it was SAFE for Americans to be in Egypt for the last couple of weeks?

That is Rep. Kay Granger from Texas placing the hold. I believe that Michele Bachmann is working to hold funds as well. It might help if we all call our congress critters and senators this week and let them know we do not want anymore money going to Egypt as long as Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge.
Also, please everyone watch Glenn Beck’s 2 part special ‘The Project’ on Blaze TV. It is about the Muslim Brotherhood and radical Islamist infiltration of our government all the way down to the local level. It is scary as hell and as many of us FReepers know, has been going on for decades. They are in the endgame now and people really need to wake up.

Right now The Blaze is running a 14 day free trial for Glenn Beck TV , so you can watch it for free once you sign up. Believe me...it is worth the time.

We all have to start putting our foot down on this stuff by letting our representatives know that we have had enough and that we also want investigations into the Muslim brotherhood influence and infiltration on Capitol hill and the White House.

Thanks for the ping SE!

If she or any congress member COULD do this, we wouldn't be $16 trillion in debt.

Reminds me of the lib missionary in the movie THE SAND PEBBLES. Refusing to leave, he declares himself to be a “stateless Person”. Fleeing to the Chinese rebels, he is promptly shot by them.

excellent points which we will never see in the media!

It’s disgraceful that this Administration wants to send more money to Egypt.

And, re the ‘war on women’...the Republicans might want to point out that ‘pimps’ are not a positive force for women, yet Mr. Obama thought it was “an honor” to be on a radio show hosted by ‘the Pimp with a Limp’!

In October 2010 I, a retired American male tourist, walked the streets of Cairo Egypt and Amman Jordan alone and even after dark and never was accosted or killed. Both countries are marvels to see. Most of the locals were polite and some even welcoming, but I could sense some resentment to our American government and policies towards Israel, etc. in the way they spoke.

What kept the lid on their behavior and kept me safe was that both countries were ruled by strong rulers who had linked their fates with American policy as we practiced it from 1949 to 2009. Now, Obama has, without the input of anyone but his inner circle, has switched from a policy to keep the lid on radical Islam to supporting it. Big Mistake or maybe an act of treason against we Americans who thought every president, even a Democrat, put our land first and would protect us.

Because Egypt is such a great ally!

Unfortunately, I don't think I'd believe anything sent out by the State Dept these days. All warnings or non-warnings will from here on in be intended to protect Hillary's reputation.

Everything now is politically motivated. I'd bet the missionaries know more about what's really going on than these 60's hippie "diplomats".

I understand the money came from the State Dept. I hope Rep. Granger can/did place a hold...a permanent one!

I called our congresscritters explaining how stupid it is to Borrow money to give/use.

Good for you on calling your reps!! We all need to really start bugging them about this stuff. Now is the best time to get them to move with the election coming up. If you get a chance...watch that Beck special. It will scare the hell out of you.
