First we knew that 3 of the 4 of Egyptian government’s lobbyists in D.C dumped us on Saturday then today we found a statement from the ministry of foreign affairs in Cairo denying that they dumped us because we were the one who dumped them.
Second now there is a delegation from SCAF currently in D.C and for sure it is headed by Lt. General Mohamed El Assar , that delegation goes to Washington after the NGO raid and the decision to bar US citizens working in NGOs including the son of some congressman forcing John McCain to slam SCAF.
Then on Monday we found rumors that some claim to be news that the States have decided to cancel the US Aid to Egypt after more than 30 years at least according to Al Mehawar TV channel.
The news is confirmed by some sources while denied by other sources including the Egyptian ambassador in D.C. Today I got a tip from a friend based on another source from the States "Supposedly credible" that aid is going to be cancelled because of the human rights records of SCAF " I highly doubt it is about human rights only because let's not fool ourselves for 30 years Washington did not much care about the human rights records of Mubarak's regime"
Another source told me that it will be cancelled but it will return in another form , may be in development program
I am trying to get more details but let’s say it is agreed that the fate of the US aid was going to be determined by the States sooner or later when Egypt gets a new regime and the Egyptian policies are cleared to Washington whether it is US/Israeli friendly or not. It is matter of time in my point of view. There is no smoke with fire and there is a lot of smoke here.
If the news is true and the US aid is cancelled , I will be very happy and consider it as a victory for the revolution as well the American people who need this money more than we do , especially we have got a lot of stolen money inside and outside Egypt that ISA we will restore back. We do not really need it.
It will be another a victory for the revolution because Egyptians have always wished this US aid to be cancelled because they have always felt that it was a humiliating slavery contract in time of Mubarak.
You must know if that news is true , SCAF will use it to increase its popularity among Egyptians once again as nationalist council that does not accept any Americans orders to appoint this or that.
