Putin of Russia, now, King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia, both offer support
for the Egyptian Army against the Muslim Brotherhood…and against Barack
case you don’t remember, the Saudi King refused to even talk to Obama
for a long time after the overthrow of his friend Hosni Mubarak in
Egypt, supported and funded in part by Obama. Now, not only are the King
and the Russian President vowing to back General Sisi against the
Brotherhood, they are putting their money where their mouths are, more
than making up for Obama’s threat to cut off $1.3 billion.
Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has called on Arabs to stand together against
“attempts by the Muslim Brotherhood to destabilise” Egypt. (Various
reports say the King pledged anywhere from $5 – 12 billion in aid to
Egypt and Putin has promised to visit Egypt to discuss a large Russian
arms sale to Egypt, bankrolled by the oil kingdom)
“The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, its
people and government stood and stands by today with its brothers in
Egypt against terrorism,” he said in a statement read on state TV on
Friday, backing Egypt’s military leadership. “I
call on the honest men of Egypt and the Arab and Muslim nations … to
stand as one man and with one heart in the face of attempts to
destabilise a country that is at the forefront of Arab and Muslim
history,” he added.
He also said that they are confident that Egypt will recover. Saudi
Arabia was a close ally of former president Hosni Mubarak and has
historically had a difficult relationship with the Muslim Brotherhood.
It pledged at least $5 billion in aid
to Egypt after Mohammed Morsi of the Brotherhood was ousted from the
presidency last month.
