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!

Why didnt the obamanatr make this announcement when the Muslim Brotherhiod was in control? Obviously he agreed with these radicals, and wants to see Israel and the West become second rate countries and take a back seat and be dominated by the Muslims Aldo look what this disgusting leader did to the Greatest Generation. close their WWII memorial but let illegals have their march right next to the WWII memorial.

^ Or it could be because the US is barred from sending foreign aid to any country that has had a coup, which is why they all went to great lengths never to refer to it as a "coup."

You didn't know this for the same reason that you're jealous of public school teachers...you never got an education. Ignorance mixed with jealousy results in terrible outcomes.
