Any aid we give to a group to help them rise in power because it is believed that they will be friendly to us is labeled as meddling in the internal politics of a sovereign nation. Just giving money to a country just means it will be used or stolen by the group in power, and will help to keep them in power.
The bulk of the money goes to the Egyptian military to maintain stability and its worth giving aid to Egypt beacuse Egypt has a peace treaty with Israel.
