    Is your suggestion that we ignore them and hope the "military" retains power or that the US act proactively and find out more.

    Apparently it actually happened a couple of weeks ago and it slipped through the cracks.

    Thanks I appreciate it.

    Wasn't the package released after the MB liberalized their position on Israel?

    It also seems like none of the people against the MB knows anything about their history. The are one of the more tolerable Islamic groups that exist with any political power.

    I may not like this, but, the US was contractually obligated and would have had to pay out 2billion in penalties if we did not give the cash.


    Obama's administration has given the following reasoning:
    The Obama administrationís decision to begin releasing $1.3 billion in annual military aid for Egypt will avert a disruption in arms sales that might have cost thousands of U.S. jobs and as much as $2 billion in contracting penalties for the U.S. government.

    The administration considered the potential loss of U.S. jobs in Ohio, Texas and elsewhere generated by Egyptian military contracts with companies such as General Dynamics Corp. (GD), which sells M1A1 tanks, and Lockheed Martin Corp. (LMT), which sells F-16 jets, according to State Department officials who briefed reporters on the condition of anonymity. In addition, under the contracting terms, the U.S. government might have been liable for as much as $2 billion if the Egyptian aid money were withheld, according to one of the officials.

    Yes I would rather have a secular military regime in power than a populist theocracy which is virulently anti-western, highly oppressive, and overtly imperialistic.

    lol the release of these funds came the day of the meeting with the Muslim Brotherhood and the Administration and we're really expected to believe this utter nonsense? Yes now it's against the law to fund America's enemies abroad. Tell us another one.

    Their position on the Israeli peace treaty is clear they said they will not honor it.

    It also seems like none of the people against the MB knows anything about their history. The are one of the more tolerable Islamic groups that exist with any political power.
    The motto of the MB:

    "God is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations."



    The MB is an overtly radical, anti-western, and imperialistic organization.

    I am looking for more answers here myself.

    You have a better, more viable reason, son? Submit it with references.
