Obama Invites Egypt's Islamist President To The White House

Having enabled the Muslim Brotherhood's takeovers in Libya and Egypt, President Obama is following up with inviting Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood president, Mohammed Morsi, to the White House. And has reassured him that the American taxpayer will be paying Egypt's bills:

"President Obama extended an invitation to President Morsi to visit the United States when he attends the U.N. General Assembly in September," Egyptian aide Yasser Ali said after Morsi met U.S. Deputy Secretary of State William Burns in Cairo.

Burns, who did not mention the invitation at a news conference earlier, pledged U.S. support for Egypt's battered economy and said he welcomed Morsi's promise to uphold international treaties, which include a peace deal with Israel.

"We have taken careful note and appreciated President Morsi's public statements about a commitment to international obligations and we certainly attach great importance to Egypt's continuing role as a force for peace," Burns said.{...}

Washington provides $1.3 billion a year in military aid as well as other assistance and could help mobilize other donors, lenders and investors. Those could prove vital as Egypt tries to stave off a balance of payments and budget crisis.

"The United States is firmly committed to doing everything that we can to support Egypt's economic revival. We understand the challenges that lie ahead and also the president does," Burns told reporters after his two-hour meeting with Mursi.

Burns, whose trip precedes a visit to Egypt on July 14 by U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, said he had discussed a $3.2 billion loan package that Cairo has been negotiating with the International Monetary Fund.

"We talked in general terms about the value of moving ahead with the IMF in the interest of Egypt, trying to work out an equitable agreement that addresses Egypt's concerns and needs," he said.

He said the IMF package "can produce not only much needed resources but also sends an important positive signal to investors and donors and Egyptians as they move ahead on economic revival."

Rest assured that if Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood decide to 'change' the Egyptian Israeli peace treaty to the point where it becomes meaningless with steps like re-militarizing Sinai, President Obama is not going to care one bit. Just as he doesn't care that the Supreme Guide of the Muslim Brotherhood,Mohammed Badi, has continued to call for jihad against Israel, saying it is every Muslim's duty.

A tip off is the continued military aid. Who exactly is going to attack Egypt? Their Muslim Brotherhood allies next door in Libya?

Jesse Jackson had it exactly right back in 2008, when he famously said that now that Obama has been elected, the 'Zionists' were going to lose all their clout.
