The US lost its prestige in Egypt and therefore the Middle East

Dr. Pipes

I'm glad that you confirmed the story of el-Sisi not taking Obama's phone call. Which did not surprise me in the least because no one in Egypt has any regard for the US be it the leaders of the coup, the liberals, the Copts, even the MB oh the salafists they follow what the MB do

I have been reading about it for the past few days but I was not able to confirm it and here is a source

Then we have more recent sources that the Israeli secret service confirmed such claim

What a disaster

As for the US aid: As I told you before what is 1.3B dollars in this day and age more so if all that money is paid to American companies and their American employees in-order to manufacture weapons then these weapons are given to Egypt which are not even needed in the first place

As for Qatar some reliable Egyptian sources are saying that Qatar are supporting the MB and other less reliable sources are saying that Qatar is giving aid to Egypt. I believe that the Emir of Qatar is helping both Egypt and the MB
