US aid to Egypt: What is Uncle Sam supporting?

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has released a new study making the case for a halt to America’s $2.1-billion in aid to Egypt.
March 29, 2001
Highlights of the report:
* Egypt incites hatred against America, including the publication in the Egyptian government media of anti-American conspiracy theories and, most recently, racist attacks against Secretary of State Colin Powell.
* Egypt befriends America’s enemies, pursuing friendly relations with Iraq, Libya, Iran, and North Korea; at the United Nations, Egypt votes against the U.S. position 68% of the time.
* Egypt persecutes Christians–the Coptic Christians are subjected to systematic discrimination by the Egyptian government as well as torture by Egyptian police officers.
* Egypt is preparing for war, spending much of its budget on massive amounts of offensive weaponry even though it faces no serious external threats; there is a danger that U.S. weapons sent to Egypt will be used against America’s ally, Israel.
* Egypt urges boycott of Israel–defying the terms of the U.S.-brokered Israel-Egypt peace treaty, Egypt’s leaders have called for boycotting Israel.
* Egypt is violating its peace treaty with Israel, refusing to have the normal trade, cultural, scientific, and diplomatic relations that the U.S.-brokered treaty requires. Egypt recalled its ambassador from Israel last year, and it has refused to accept the credentials of Israel’s ambassador in Egypt, thus making it impossible for him to function as an ambassador.
* Egypt defends terrorist groups, including Hezbollah, which murdered 241 Americans in Beirut in 1983.
* Egypt sheltered killer of Americans–during 1997-1998, Egypt sheltered the notorious Palestinian Arab terrorist Abu Nidal, who was responsible for the murders of numerous Americans and Israelis.
* Egypt tramples human rights, refusing to grant its citizens free speech, freedom of the press, or free elections; dissidents are routinely jailed and tortured.
* Egypt incites hatred against America’s ally, Israel, publishing a constant torrent of anti-Semitic articles, Holocaust-denial, and Nazi-like cartoons in its government-controlled media.
ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said: «The United States has given Egypt over $40-billion since 1979–yet Egypt continues to spend much of its budget on weapons even though it faces no real external threats; befriends America’s enemies, publishes anti-Semitic and anti-American hatred in its official media; refused to send its ambassador back to Israel or to accept the credentials of Israel’s ambassador in Egypt; and praises anti-American terrorist groups. It’s time to stop U.S. aid to Egypt.»
