Egypt decries US aid freeze, says it’s ‘incorrect’

CAIRO (AP) - Egypt has decried Washington’s decision to freeze a sizable chunk of its annual $1.5 billion aid to Egypt, saying the move was wrong and ill-timed. In Egypt’s first public reaction, the Foreign Ministry said today that the American move, whether permanent or temporary, raised questions about Washington’s commitment to supporting the Arab nation’s security goals at a time when it is facing terrorist challenges.

yes and convert that to Egyptian pounds @ $6.99 per dollar is astounding! Just think of what our money can buy in Egypt.

If you suddenly stop giving me $1.5 billion dollars I'm going to cry too!
