Muslim Brotherhood: You’d best keep the aid money coming if you want that treaty with Israel intact

posted at 10:32 pm on February 14, 2012 by Allahpundit

Regimes come and go but the bribes remain the same.

US aid to Egypt is guaranteed by the Camp David Accords and stopping it would be a violation of that treaty, a high-ranking Muslim Brotherhood lawmaker said Sunday.

Essam El-Erian, who also serves as chairman of the Egyptian parliament’s foreign affairs committee, said that should aid from Washington be cut, the Brotherhood would consider changing the terms of Egypt’s 1979 peace treaty with Israel.

El-Erian told the London-based newspaper Al-Hayat that the US needs to understand that “what was acceptable before the revolution is no longer,” and that should the aid provisions outlined in the treaty be modified, it could open the door to further changes in the agreement…

Congress has already approved $.1.3 in military aid and $250 million in civilian aid for the current fiscal year. That assistance, however, is conditioned upon Egypt meeting all of its obligations under its peace treaty with Israel. That factor that may help explain the unpopularity of US aid – the treaty is widely unpopular in Egypt, and many see the conditions on US aid as an infringement on the country’s sovereignty.

Obama’s catastrophic new budget calls for maintaining the full $1.3 billion in military aid to Egypt next year along with $800 million in bribes — er, I mean, aid — for the rest of the Arab Spring. I’m curious what the Brotherhood’s game is here considering that poll from last week showing 71 percent of Egyptians oppose further U.S. foreign aid to the country. With numbers like that, you would think they’d call for rejecting the money outright, especially when they have the newly ascendant Salafists looking for a parliamentary majority and ready to demagogue them if they accept it. Is it simply a case of the MB signaling to the State Department that it’s willing to be bought off from war with Israel if the price is right? Or is it a subtler move in which the MB expects Congress to cut the aid and wants to use that as a pretext for canceling the Camp David accords? An expert on Egypt at the Naval Postgraduate School told the Christian Science Monitor a few days ago that the Egyptian military junta is now so fantastically unpopular inside the country that they might try to get the aid canceled in hopes of endearing themselves to the America-hating public. Quote:

“They’re trying to provoke [the severing of US aid],” says Robert Springborg, an expert on the Egyptian military at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. “Because they’re desperate and they want to present themselves as popular defenders of the nation. So what better way to do it?”

Furthermore, he argues, “It wouldn’t mean a thing” to Egypt’s military were the aid to stop. “A great bulk of that has gone into the procurement of weapons systems that have not been used, are not likely to be used, and that [Egyptian forces] haven’t been properly trained on.”…

Springborg says Egypt does not properly maintain many of the M1A1 Abrams tanks, does not have all of them in service, and does not regularly train servicemen on them. The F-16s, he says, are “dumbed-down” versions that are “not effective fighting planes.”

That might explain that slo-mo clusterfark over the 19 American NGO workers who were arrested. Could be that the military wanted to pick a fight with the U.S. even if it meant their money being cut, and the Brotherhood seized on it as grounds for dumping the treaty if America followed through. As one Israeli analyst said, “Many suspect a power struggle between the Supreme Military Council and the Muslim Brotherhood; a struggle in which the officers try to show the ‘brothers’ their strength by standing firm against the great and powerful America.” Framing the issue as money = treaty helps the Brotherhood in that power struggle too by making the military leadership ultimately responsible for the much-hated peace with Israel. If not for those dirty American dollars that the shifty generals keep taking, Egypt could once again be the Jew-hating vanguard that it was 45 years ago.

Meanwhile, John McCain is apparently optimistic about relations with the new Egyptian parliament going forward. If memory serves, he was optimistic about the new Libyan government too. How’s that working out?

It is wrong to put temptation in the path of any nation,
For fear they should succumb and go astray;
So when you are requested to pay up or be molested,
You will find it better policy to say: –

“We never pay any-one Dane-geld,
No matter how trifling the cost;
For the end of that game is oppression and shame,
And the nation that pays it is lost!”

According to the Koran they HAVE to do that. They are required to enforce to the letter every clause of an agreement that requires concessions from Infidel Pigdog Jews. But every clause in favor of Infidel Pigdog Jews is always a mere suggestion, to be “honored” only until it can be gotten around.

Of course blood money is perfectly acceptable as payment for temporarily withholding attack. But the blood money we paid in the past was just to pay off ONE GUY. The ill-defined coalition of Mullah’s Brotherhood didn’t get a penny out of that. And they didn’t agree to one word of the ransom negotiations. At this point, the odds that they’ll agree on a peaceful way to split the loot among themselves aren’t even worth considering.

They’ll keep taking the money, right up until they think they can successfully attack. That’s not just what they might do; According to the Koran it’s what they must do.

logis on February 14, 2012 at 11:01 PM

You’d best keep the aid money coming if you want that treaty with Israel intact.

If this headline is accurate. Screw you! Screw your new caliphate too! Let the Egyptian Military take the Brotherhood out. Not one more $ wasted on these radicals. Let em swim on their own or drown, preferably drown. 0 has screwed this up so royally it may be beyond a fix from us. Power up Israel as much as necessary. Either way we go, we are heading directly toward WWIII. Time to let the world go. Time for everyone outside of us to fend for themselves. Then we can see how well they like it. They will beg us to come back to their aid. Tough Love time. Wow does that sound a little Dr Paulish? Or we could just pound them into the sand ourselves. Any other options I’m missing here. Would love to hear em. Diplomacy not being my strong suit.

If they announce the treaty is void, Israel should retake the Sinai peninsula, give every Palestinian Arab the deed to a very large plot of land, and a monetary incentive (using Egypt’s aid money) should they accept to move there in permanence.

The Sinai can then declare independence, and serve as a buffer state between Egypt and Israel.

That works right up until the last line. Take away the religious rhetoric and there is no practical difference between collectivism and Islam.

Any belief system that requires the entire world be united under a single yoke will always be a threat to peace and freedom. Whether that’s Islam, Communism, Fascism, Socialism, Naziism, Global Warmingism, or any other religion that won’t work until everyone on earth serves a single government, that belief will always be the enemy of liberty until one or the other is wiped off the face of the earth.

Living life in peace

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
I hope someday you’ll join us
And Muslims will be gone more fun!

Love me a fun, non-radical Muslim any time! “Come on Ahmet, let’s play hopscotch!”

Igor R. on February 14, 2012 at 11:25 PM

Okay, I’m inspired!

Imagine there’s no Dim’craps
I know it’s hard to do
No lies to hear , no crap to swallow
And balanced budgets too
Imagine debt receeding
Race cards being closed
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one
We hope some day you all will grow up
Or go away and leave us alone

Sorry I’m not so optimistic so it end differently

LOL See, it’s easy to celebrate diversity when you try!

When Crazy Doc Savage says “diversity equals perversity” he doesn’t understand how right he is!

Good eventually wins over evil, that’s the story of humanity. Sometimes it takes longer than you expect.

I have no idea what any of that means?

El-Erian told the London-based newspaper Al-Hayat that the US needs to understand that “what was acceptable before the revolution is no longer,” and that should the aid provisions outlined in the treaty be modified, it could open the door to further changes in the agreement…

That’s a nice Sinai peninsula you got there. Shame if anything were to happen to it.

Oh, just a little joke about playing hopscotch with a “diverse” individual, not the best one and not worth a better explanation. But years ago, when Doc Savage went off the rails I used to listen to his raid show and he said that.

No, I got the hilarious Ahmet joke, but I don’t know what “Doc Savage’s raid show” means?
