Obama has made an enemy of Egypt, a once reliable ally. After he suspended hundred of millions in military and other aid to punish the people of Egypt for throwing off the yoke of Islamic tyranny by the Muslim Brotherhood, they are turning to Russia.
Who can forget Obama's campaign promise of refurbishing America's image across the world and how determined he was to establish good relationships with foreign governments? Instead, he has made an enemy of almost every good ally the US has. Media coverage on this aspect of his failed presidency remains non-existent.
An Egypt court has ordered the Muslim Brotherhood banned and all of its assets confiscated, the Associated Press is reporting, following the ouster of Islamist President Mohammed Morsi.
The Muslim Brotherhood was outlawed for much of its 85-year existence but was allowed to emerge from the shadows after former Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak was removed from office in 2011.
The court’s ruling can be appealed, according to the AP.

Middle East Expert Erick Stakelbeck Warns: ‘There Is a Bullseye on the Back of Every Christian Living in Egypt’
Erick Stakelbeck, author of “The Brotherhood: America’s Next Great Enemy,” discussed the widespread attacks on Christians in Egypt in recent days on TheBlaze TV on Friday.
“Christians, in the birthplace of Christianity, are on the run,” he said. “What we’re seeing right now in Egypt is literally a pogrom, where Christians are systematically being targeted.”
Things were bad under Mubarakm he said, but “it has intensified to horrific new levels since the so-called Arab Spring broke out two and a half years ago.”
‘Go home, White House, you’re drunk’: WH keeps laser-like focus on Biden and a camel as Egypt burns [pic]
Hey, guys, get it? Get it? The White House is, like, totally hip and stuff. It’s Hump Day! That Geico ad with the camel? The White House is on it. Isn’t that hi-freakin-larious?

Two years ago, Alex Abou-El-Ella’s Egyptian-born husband Mustafa told her he was taking their baby daughter to visit friends. When he never came back to their home in England, Alex discovered that her husband had kidnapped their daughter and whisked her away on a flight to Egypt.

Kerry Quietly Skirts Law Put in Place by Congress, Sends Muslim Brotherhood-Controlled Egypt $1.3 Billion Gift
Secretary of State John Kerry last month secretly sent $ 1.3 billion in U.S. military aid to Muslim Brotherhood-controlled Egypt, waiving the restrictions put in place by Congress to withhold such aid unless the country could meet certain democracy standards.
“Under U.S. law, for the $ 1.3 billion to flow the secretary of state must certify that the Egyptian government ‘is supporting the transition to civilian government, including holding free and fair elections, implementing policies to protect freedom of expression, association and religion, and due process of law’,” Reuters reports.
Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) on Thursday defended the Obama administration’s gift of four F-16 fighter jets to Egypt despite Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi’s newly-surfaced comments referring to Israelis as “descendents of apes and pigs.”
Kerry, during his confirmation hearing to be the next secretary of state, told Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) the foreign aid package was worked out in 2010 when Hosni Mubarak still ruled Egypt.
