Dr. Pipes

Ambassador Anne Patterson is leaving her post in Egypt because Egyptians have no like for her or her links with the MB and MB terrorists the likes of Khairat el-Shater. And it all started when the editor of al-Ahram Abd el-Nasser Salama عبد الناصر سلامة wrote an article accusing Patterson of helping the MB and planning damage to the territorial integrity of Egypt

So far so good but the ambassador wrote a very undiplomatic response to to this article and she is leaving her post in Egypt

And here is the Arabic version of ambassador Patterson's response to al-Ahram editor

And here is Abd el-Nasser Salam's response to the ambassador's very undiplomatic response

And I urge the readers to use googletranslate and judge for yourselves why is US diplomacy in Egypt a total failure

The lesson here never support a terrorist organization the likes of the MB
