Well, Someone Finally Has Some Balls on Egypt – 3 Cheers for Rep Kay Granger

By Debbie Schlussel

Congresswoman Kay Granger, Republican of Texas, is one of the few–very few–Members of Congress with the cojones to just say no to sending U.S. taxpayer money to Islamic extremists. Kudos to her for her guts and resolve. As you read this, ask yourself whether a Romney State Department (Romney was a big-time supporter of “Arab Spring” BS in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and elsewhere) would behave any differently than the Obama one.

Kay Granger of Texas Says No to Obama & His Buddy, Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi

The Obama administration notified Congress on Friday that it would provide Egypt’s new government an emergency cash infusion of $450 million, but the aid immediately encountered resistance from a prominent lawmaker wary of foreign aid and Egypt’s new course under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood.

The aid is part of the $1 billion in assistance that the Obama administration has pledged to Egypt to bolster its transition to democracy after the overthrow last year of the former president, Hosni Mubarak. . . . The United States Agency for International Development notified Congress of the cash infusion on Friday morning during the pre-election recess, promptly igniting a smoldering debate over foreign aid and the administration’s handling of crises in the Islamic world.

An influential Republican lawmaker, Representative Kay Granger of Texas, immediately announced that she would use her position as chairwoman of the House appropriations subcommittee overseeing foreign aid to block the distribution of the money. She said the American relationship with Egypt “has never been under more scrutiny” than it is in the wake of the election of President Mohamed Morsi, a former leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.


“I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I cannot support it at this time,” Ms. Granger said in a statement that her office issued even before the administration announced the package. . . .

The $1 billion in assistance has been cobbled together from funds already appropriated by Congress, but the administration is required to notify lawmakers of its intention to release any of the funds. Ms. Granger presumably can put a hold on that release and pursue legislation to reverse the appropriation. . . .

In addition to the $1 billion in assistance, the administration is working with Egypt to provide $375 million in financing and loan guarantees for American financiers who invest in Egypt and a $60 million investment fund for Egyptian businesses. All of that comes on top of $1.3 billion in military aid that the United States provides Egypt each year.

A senior State Department official said that the administration would consult with members of Congress in the days ahead “to make the case that this budget support is firmly in U.S. interests in seeing peace, stability and democracy in Egypt and the wider neighborhood.”

Watch to see which Members of Congress, especially self-professed “conservative” Republicans go against Kay Granger to get these funds released and sent to the America-hating Egyptians. As we know, Granger will encounter a great deal of resistance to this move from the Obamaniks and Hillary Clinton’s State Department . . . and probably fellow Republicans. Would it be any different under Romney? Not based on Romney’s statements in support of massive aid to these anti-American Muslim rebels throughout the Middle East. And would a Republican have the guts to buck Romney on this? Let’s hope so.

Whether or not Romney wins in November, it’s clear to me that our only hope of common sense against the Islamic threat is in the United States Congress, where a few Republicans–including Granger, Allen West, Michele Bachmann, and some others–have the intestinal fortitude to call the Islamic spade a spade, ask the questions that need to be asked, and try to take the steps we need to take to fight the massive, dhimmi proverbial “City Hall.”

My hat’s off to her. We should have stopped this bullshit years ago! I’m tired of seeing our hard-earned money we get bent over the barrel for getting handed to these pukes.

Too bad she’s not in the presidential race…….

IceNoMore on October 2, 2012 at 2:18 pm

You nailed it on the head DS, if Romney wins the election a month from now, I to won’t expect much change, regarding out foreign policies. I agree 100% with Ms. Granger, we need to STOP sending these arab regimes money, they don’t give a flying phuck about us here in the United States and they sure as hell don’t care about Israel, but want to see Israel and the jews removed from society, etc.

Here’s something I don’t get, understandably so we don’t send money to the Iranian governments in Iran, because their government (esp. Ahmadinejad) have a ultra disdain for us, not just Israel only. But some unknown reason, we continuessly send x-amounts of money to these depsotic arab regimes who poses as our allies (in which I don’t see or recognize them as our ally), but the next minute they stab us in the back and spit at us!

Complete stupidity from our government, and I won’t be surprised if dhimmi’s on both the Republican end & Democrat end alike will go on the attack towards Rep. Granger for her telling the whole truth on us QUIT sending aid to the Egyptian government who’s government has been hi-jacked by the Muslim Brotherhood and other islamists here and there.

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Sean R. on October 2, 2012 at 2:39 pm

The fact that this takes balls is very disturbing. It should be too obvious to discuss, even for someone with a room temperature IQ and a third grade education. Why would anyone send money there? The money would be better spent making nuclear weapons to use against this trash.

jerry doegen on October 2, 2012 at 3:00 pm

Keep that money Here, Put it to good use, (not buying Obamaphones Though)

Billie on October 2, 2012 at 3:06 pm

I wonder how many Members are getting money and/or other benefits from Muslim organizations.

Little Al on October 2, 2012 at 3:45 pm

I think even Allen West voted to send the money. I am pretty sure I read that.

That used Pamper Grover Norquist was on a local radio show this am (Because Fauxcahontas, Esq. mentoned him last evo during the debate). Fresh from returning from Morocco. The two dopey hosts did a collective gasp when he said Morocco and he played it off as if it was not a dangerous place in the ME (with all the chaos and uprising). The two dopes had ZERO idea that he is an Islamopologist & is married to a Muslima he adores.

Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 3:53 pm

    Skunky, it is almost a certainty that Grover Norquist is a closet Muslim as well. The male can marry a non-Muslim, but that privilege is not accorded to the female in Islam. It is amazing that Mr. Norquist is even accepted in conservative circles now.

    Worry01 on October 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm

It’s about time somebody strapped on a pair. The rest of congress should follow this example. And, it does take a little balls now days to do something called for by common sense. It means going against the crowd.

RT on October 2, 2012 at 4:01 pm

“As you read this, ask yourself whether a Romney State Department (Romney was a big-time supporter of “Arab Spring” BS in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and elsewhere) would behave any differently than the Obama one.”

So therefore it doesn’t matter who you vote for?!?!?!? That is BS.

A Romney admin would be better for Israel, better for America, and better for the economy. With a Romney State Dept., there would be a BETTER chance of stopping aid to Egypt than with an Obama State dept. that can’t even say “Islamic terrorist” or identify the capitol of Israel.

So yeah, go ahead and vote for Obama, cuz Romney is just like Obama…Duh.

FrenchKiss on October 2, 2012 at 4:03 pm

Ok, I went back to double-check what I read because sometimes this info melds all together and I want to make sure I have the facts right.

I guess a related House bill took place on 9/13…a temporary spending bill of the amount of $130 MILLION a month to Egypt.

On that roll call Kay Granger & Allen West voted AYE (to send). (She voted no after this…and I must look up the roll call to see if Allen West voted No on the one Granger also voted no on…)

Also, on the Sept. 13th temporary bill (where Granger voted Aye) Michele Bachmann and Peter King voted No.

The Senate did vote 81-10 to send taxpayer money to Egypt, Libya and Pakistan…unlimited and unrestricted…so not many are on the side NOT to send.

I must do more research. I just remember reading that West voted yes (on the Sept. 13th vote) and I was shocked and saddened…but apparently there was a vote after that and I must check the roll-call to know the final answer.

My apologies if there is any confusion…

Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 4:14 pm

    Skunky, I look forward to your research.

    skzion on October 2, 2012 at 5:45 pm

And, fortunately, Rep. Granger is also receiving support from another member of the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations–Rep. Tom Cole (Republican, Oklahoma). Although I’m not optimistic about courage snowballing here, at least this is a start, and perhaps others will join.

Cole Comments on Aid to Egypt

Sep 28, 2012 Issues: Defense and National Security
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman Tom Cole (OK-04) released the following statement after the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) announced its intention to transfer $450 million in aid funding to Egypt. Cole serves on the Appropriations Subcommittee on State and Foreign Operations, which is chaired by Rep. Kay Granger.

“Increasing Egyptian aid by $450 million is unwise given the ongoing instability threatening American interests. The United States should not reward foreign governments that fail to respond adequately to attacks on U.S. citizens and territory within their borders. I support Chairwoman Granger’s decision to block this funding until we can be sure it will not be misused.”

Ralph Adamo on October 2, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    Ralph, please forgive me if I am confused (I’m not sure if it’s ‘cuz I am under the weather or if I am confused by reading articles that say certain Reps don’t wanna send funds to the ME but then they vote to….) but I just looked up Cole’s vote on Sept. 3rd and he voted to keep sending the money. (I may be wrong but there seems to not have been another vote…)

    I am confused.

    Also, if you look at the few who voted NO it runs the gamut from Barney’s Frank and Barbara Lee….but according to the the roll call West and Cole and Granger voted yes…

    I am sooooo confused…

    Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 4:48 pm

    Skunky, the link you provided was for H.J. Res. 117. That bill does not pertain to sending foreign aid to Egypt.

    H.J. Res. 117, was signed into law on September 28, 2012. The bill provides fiscal year 2013 appropriations for continuing projects and activities of the Federal Government through Wednesday, March 27, 2013;

    S. 3245, which extends to September 30, 2015, the expiration dates of key requirements of four immigration programs administered by the Department of Homeland Security: the EB-5 Regional Center Program; the E-Verify Program; the Special Immigrant Non-Minister Religious Worker Program; and the Conrad State 30 J-1 Visa Waiver Program; and

    S. 3552, the “Pesticide Registration Improvement Extension Act of 2012,” which reauthorizes and modifies fee collection provisions and related authorities in the Federal Insecticide, Fungicide, and Rodenticide Act and the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.

    Here is the link to the law itself.

      Thank you Ralph. I apologize for the confusion. I thought my provided link was for the September 13th House vote but I apologize.

      If someone can sum up for me what is what I would appreciate it. I want to make sure I understand and I don’t want to confuse anyone further….

      Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 6:16 pm

I want Obama to lose for so many reasons. I would love to knowck that sh*t eating grin off his face.

KNOCK, sorry.

It would have been kind of nice if we’d set as precedence from the very beginning of our founding to demand and take tribute from nations for our protection and / or friendship rather than us paying goons around the world to like us.

Ruckus_Tom on October 2, 2012 at 4:35 pm

If the money is part of what has already been promised to the Morsi government, it might be in the USA’s best interest to disburse the aid. People here need to view this in the context of our overall relations with Egypt.

That said, our ambassador should make clear, via diplomatic channels, that Egypt is jeopardizing America’s good will toward it and that recent developments may cause us to reassess the aid program.

Larry S. on October 2, 2012 at 4:42 pm

    Larry S. I may be (presently) a little out of it right now but your post reminds me that you always say Liberal things…

    You must mean our “overall relations” with the Muslim Brotherhood (“best interest” all all)….and if so the readers should consider where you come from…

    Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 4:53 pm

      Skunky, I knew ol’ Larry on Israel National News, where he was so unprincipled in his talkbacks that I refused to read anything he wrote.

      skzion on October 2, 2012 at 5:58 pm

      skunky-

      Thank you for your high praise- why, I think it’s the first time I’ve been referred to as “Liberal”. And indeed, the great Victorian Liberal Nonconformist, John Bright, is in my family tree. I will be pleased if readers may take into account from whence I come.

      All of this is, however aside from the issue at hand. It is unfortunate, that some people cannot address an issue without attempting to disparage a poster’s character.

      Max Boot, writing in the well-known “liberal” left wing mag, Commentary noted,

      “if the Egyptian debt crisis blows up, a la Greece or Iceland, the results are likely to be much more serious than in those countries, given the number of Salafist radicals already present in Egypt… extending more aid to Egypt actually enhances our leverage over the new government”

      But no, skunky, America’s relations with Egypt are not synonymous with our relations with the Brotherhood or any particular government in power in Egypt. You appear to have a very short term view of international relations.

      LS: I do NOT allow links to Slummentary on my site. At one time, Commentary was a great magazine. Now, it is an irrelevant cesspool for liberals who don’t want to be called liberals. Slummentary supports the “rebels” and Arab Spring in every Muslim state. They also support no limits on immigration in America and no enforcement of immigration laws. The people who run it, especially schmuck John Podhoretz, are NOT conservatives. And most of them are complete a-holes. I was recently defamed by Slummentary’s online idiots, including Podhoretz, and I’m considering taking legal action. If you think Max Boot (NOT a conservative by any stretch) and Slummentary are conservative, you have no idea what conservatism is. Wake up. DS

      Larry S. on October 2, 2012 at 6:01 pm

        Larry S., what is wrong with you?

        The Muslim Brotherhood have a firm grasp on Egypt. I recall them hoisting the Al Queda flag.

        It’s really NOT OK that most didn’t know that after 9/11 that the way we went into Iraq would embolden Iran. But it is at least more understandable (the ignorance) than you thinking that with the Muslim Brotherhood in control in Egypt and the unrest in the ME in 2012 that any sort of diplomacy will get us anywhere.

        I’ll let the reader decide for themselves if they think it’s safe under your umbrella. As for me, I am not going anywhere near you….

        Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 6:24 pm

    And what is big, bad (not) Egypt gonna do to the US if you don’t send aid? Attack Israel? They’re gonna do that anyway. It’s ridiculous to believe that sending them money will get you anything but more demands for it.

    Italkit on October 2, 2012 at 5:12 pm

    But overall, “Larry S.”, uncivilized as Egypt is, I would marvel to know just how USA relations with Egypt is not analogous to a kind of, bestiality, . . . international bestiality, . . .

    PhillipGaley on October 3, 2012 at 11:20 am

Look, the Egyptians have voted in the Muslim Brotherhood. Bravo for their enfranchisement. Now we know, based on cold, hard numbers, that we should not support the country–or any of the people. We can’t blame the MB control solely on some tricky elite maneuvering.

skzion on October 2, 2012 at 6:00 pm

I guess some of these Members were for sending aid before they were against it.

But Skunky’s research was very informative.

Little Al on October 2, 2012 at 6:02 pm

Meanwhile, faux-conservative John McCain votes EXACTLY the same as Obama by supporting giving American money to America’s enemies:

http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0912/81188.html.

This is no surprise, of course, to regular readers of Debbie’s website, as they know that Ahmadinijad or McCain do not change their spots any more than leopards do. But the shamelessness about McCain’s treachery is still astonishing.

But I guess that’s because Americans just don’t care enough anymore. They SHOULD be responding to McCain like the American public would have in the late 1950s to someone saying we need to give foreign aid to the Commies so they will like us more. (Though not from that era, from everything I’ve read, if any politician actually even suggested such a thing, they would have been railroaded out of town.)

Ralph Adamo on October 2, 2012 at 6:11 pm

    Ralph,

    It figures that “slingshot” McCain would vote to send money to our enemies. That old dog needs to just retire and go have a beer somewhere. I’m pretty sure that through his wife he can get one for free. He can also do us a favor and take his nutty daughter with him.

    Ken b on October 2, 2012 at 6:55 pm

The men should be ashamed of themselves.

Dtom on October 2, 2012 at 6:38 pm

Ralph, after going over that vote in the house on September 13th it seems my link to HJ RES 117 IS correct.

“The House vote took place on September 13, two days AFTER the attacks on Americans and see who still voted for funding to our enemies”…. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/votes/112-2012/h579

Again, I could be mistaken but this link keeps coming up every time regarding the vote in question.

And I did mistakenly say ‘Sept 3rd’ when I meant September 13th (my bad…) but I also noticed that I have read Peter King (NY) voted NO but in the link it says he DID NOT vote.

Other than that my research stands up but I could be mistaken so I look forward to finding out a definitive answer….

(Worry, I agree with you on GN and Skzion thanks for the heads-up on Larry S. I know a Liberal talking point when I read one and I know you do too, so if you avoid him he must be gas huffing!)

Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 6:44 pm

    Nope- never been on Israel National News.
    You and skzion may be often in error, but never in doubt.

    Larry S. on October 2, 2012 at 9:21 pm

      Larry S., I’ll let those who read your uninformed posts decide where the hell you stand.

      And I hope they start knowing that we are not giving million of tax-payer dollars to Egypt BUT to the Moooooooslim Brotherhood. And YOU said we should give them the money.

      That is where YOUR mouth is. Cram it!

      Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 10:18 pm

        skanky-

        “I’ll let those who read your uninformed posts decide where the hell you stand. … Cram it!”

        Notice you can’t be bothered dealing with the issue in question: the merits, or lack thereof, of disbursing appropriated funds to Egypt. Personal insults are much more your style. Seems a number of DS readers think that is the way to make your “points”.

        FYI, a failed state in Egypt is not in anyone’s best interest, unless perhaps you happen to be an Al Qaeda operative. As best I can tell, your “analysis” is refreshingly free of such burdensome considerations

        You certainly are a rather unpleasant individual. I wonder how many of DS readers share your psychopathy.

        Actually, skanky, what I said was the following:

        If the money is part of what has already been promised to the Morsi government, it might be in the USA’s best interest to disburse the aid.

        You couldn’t even be bothered accurately describing my sentiment. In addition to common civility, another attribute you lack is an appropriate sense of nuance- oh heck, just plain honesty.

        Larry S. on October 3, 2012 at 2:54 pm

      Actually, Larry S., I have corrected my error.

      skzion on October 4, 2012 at 7:58 pm

Ok, this was in the text of Ralph’s link regarding HJ RES 117…which is the vote on Sept. 13th, 2012 that I have alluded to and the roll call…

“H. J. Res. 117—7
the enactment of an Act authorizing appropriations for fiscal year 2013 for military activities of the Department of Defense.
SEC. 124. In addition to any other transfer authority available
to the Department of Defense, the Secretary of Defense may transfer an amount designated for Overseas Contingency Operations/Global War on Terrorism pursuant to section 251(b)(2)(A) of the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985 made available by this joint resolution for the Department of Defense between such appropriations, to be merged with and to be available for the same purposes, and the same time period, as the appropriation or fund to which transferred. The Secretary of Defense shall notify the congressional defense committees not fewer than 15 days prior to any transfer made pursuant to this section.”

I also read that Cankles Clinton (as Sec Of State) has the power to waive any Congressional conditions to the $$ allocated. Yikes!

With sending money to Syria and also millions of aid to Hamas-Gaza it’s undeniable that we are heartily funding the worst of the worst.

Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 7:16 pm

    Skunky, I stand corrected. That link I posted WAS the law that included funding for Egypt and Libya, as voted on by Congress and signed by Obama–just as you indicated. I admit that I only took the time to scan it, and did not carefully read between the lines. I was looking for a specific reference to foreign aid. Silly me. That’s not the way these translucent bills are written.

    So, yes, you’re correct about that roll call too. And, notably, Romney VP candidate PAUL RYAN voted FOR the continuation of aid, along with Pelosi, and an astonishingly
    MAJORITY of Republicans. But Ryan wasn’t the only one. Mike Pence–who should know better–also voted for the continued aid as well.

    Ralph Adamo on October 2, 2012 at 7:30 pm

      No worries Ralph. I thought I may have messed up as I am wont to do and what I am looking for the truth more than anything.

      It is very annoying that ala John Kerry that many of these freaks voted against it before they voted for it. We are in a lot of trouble….and we must watch Congress like a hawk because there is no one who will NOT let us down!

      Skunky on October 2, 2012 at 7:44 pm

Kay Granger is right, but it’s only a first step. Eliminating payments to ALL Muslim countries should be her priority – a whole ton of cash would be saved, which could go into eroding a part of the debt, no mattery how tiny.

Egypt is a good first step – should be instantly followed by Fuckistan, then Libya, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and anyone else in the list. In the end, there should be no US money going to Muslims anywhere!

martin on October 3, 2012 at 9:26 am

It is no accident that this is a Texas Lady.

Ted Cruz is, likely, to be next Senator from Texas and he and others like Rep. Ted Poe and Rep. Louis Gohmert are willing to take a close look at efficacy of foreign aid. The House has primary Constitutional responsibility for funding the executive which seems to have been forgotten.

My Senator Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania has signed onto Sen. Rand Paul’s bill. Although Rand Paul is problematic for many reasons, his position on foreign aid makes sense to me. http://www.toomey.senate.gov/?p=press_release&id=712

bobguzzardi on October 3, 2012 at 10:01 am

Why is it that the majority of the Republicans in the House of Representatives that have any “testicular fortitude” are women. Yes there are a few men ie Allen West but the women seem to have thier stuff together. I agree with Rep Granger in that we need to stop sending aid to Egypt. The Muslim Brotherhood are in control and despite what our dopey MSM, idiotic members of Congress (John crash test dummy McCain) and muddleheaded “conservative” talkshow hosts say that is not good for the U.S. and Israel. While we are at it with our soaring national debt(thanks Obumbler) we should pull all foreign aid. Especially to countries that hate us. Expect Rep Granger to get push back from the usual eunichs in Congress. No spine having jackenapes like McConnell and Boehner will talk a good game but will forget they have a pair and will go get along with the Odummer’s and PIAPS’ agenda. On a funny note in my evening art class I found out the Egypt’s famous statues like the Sphinx and the pyramids are deteriorating due to tour bus pollution, the weather and camel dung methane. We shouldn’t worry though because I’m sure that shaddy windbag Morsi will take care of things, with our money of course.

Ken b on October 3, 2012 at 11:57 am

    So true! Nowadays it seems like it’s the female politicians, activists and bloggers who have the balls. Mushmouthed traitors like McCain make me sick.

    Kostoglotov on October 3, 2012 at 5:55 pm

    Some additional thoughts on McCain. It’s currently politically fashionable to be pro-Islam and pro-Islamist – God knows why – but McCain’s reflexive, pit bull savaging of Michelle Bachmann and colleagues without even attempting to address their very legitimate concerns cancels out his admitted heroism in the North Vietnamese prison camps. All for the sake of a temporary political expedience, as apprehended via his horribly flawed political instincts and enabled by his apparent lack of a perceivable moral sense.

    The day is coming when Obama and his gang of felonious, back-stabbing lunatics will be kicked back into the holes they crawled out. Sanity will be restored to the American political process, and the Obama administration and the political culture it spawned will rightfully be viewed as a shameful aberration in our national history.

    History will judge McCain harshly. When all is said and done, he might as well have switched sides and started popping up on Viet Cong TV every night, baying for global Communist revolution.

    Kostoglotov on October 3, 2012 at 6:55 pm

“And YOU said we should give them the money.”

Actually, skanky, what I said was the following:

If the money is part of what has already been promised to the Morsi government, it might be in the USA’s best interest to disburse the aid.

You couldn’t even be bothered accurately describing my sentiment. In addition to common civility, another attribute you lack is an appropriate sense of nuance- oh heck, just plain honesty. Sheesh.

Doesn’t matter whether we promised it or not. The only reason Egypt voted for Morsi was that they couldn’t vote for Ayman al Zawahiri – or else, they would.

In fact, we shouldn’t give money to any Muslim country, period, whether it’s Egypt or Qatar or Fuckistan or Afghanistan or Libya or Iraq or Kuwait or Bahrein or Kosovo or anyone else. And not just b’cos of our own economy or budget issues. We should first delete all Muslim countries from our aid list, and then from the remainder, only support those countries that are generally w/ us in the UN and other international bodies, voting with us, rather than against us.

The list of nations remaining would be very short as a result, but it would be cash well spent.

First of all we need Romney and must give him all our support. There may be scant few congressmen today willing to stand up to principals but that is changing as more and more US christians will develop harsher attitudes towards muslims and stronger support for Israel in the years to come. I believe that as Islamic violence continues and Americans speak up demanding a curb in the US’s immigration policy more republican congressmen will take a stand. Forget the naive idiotic Jews of America to whom Debbie you are an exception to the rule. I am embarrassed of my American identity and glad to live in Israel. May all those Obama voting men wake up post election day and have their foreskins reattached. If they want back in the faith, make ‘em bleed and scream.

Representative Granger is the former mayor of Fort Worth, a city that has no been taken over by the far left like Dallas. Dallas and Dallas County are now controlled by Democrats. Fort Worth, Arlington and Tarrant County are GOP and Tea Party country. We don’t like to be called “Dallas” because Dallas sucks! The Dallas Cowboys and Texas Rangers both play in Arlington, not Dallas.

It’s good to know that someone has enough sense in the USA to state the obvious … funding the enemy is stupid. Stupid. When I visited Egypt in late 2010 it had an excellent tourist sytem that would have been producing hundreds of millions of Egyptian pounds per year. But Cairo was the dirtiest place I have ever seen, all the ancient artifact sites were run down and even toilets were hard to find and when found, abyssmaly dirty and poorly maintained. I couldn’t help but wonder where the real Egyptians who built remarkable structures, who were expert in engineering and maths, surveying etc had gone, only to be replaced with a lot of backward, ignorant people. Egypt will continue to degrade now that the Muslim Brotherhood has taken over. The US doesn’t want to play any part in their downfall or ours and funding them will hasten the latter. The writing is on the wall in every civilised country where muslims have moved.
