Sen. Paul Introduces Amendment to Restrict Foreign Assistance to Egypt



LINK

quote:

WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, March 21, Sen. Paul introduced Amendment 378, to S.Con.Res.8, the Budget Resolution, which would enable Congress to block the transfer of further economic and military aid to Egypt until the President of the United States certifies that the President of Egypt has officially stated his intention to continue to abide by the Camp David Peace Accords.

Since 1984, the United States has provided more than $71 billion in sparsely conditioned military and economic assistance to Egypt. In addition to this, Secretary Kerry recently announced disbursement of $250 million in economic aid to Egypt. A second installment of $260 million will be granted to Egypt once the country commits to further reforms.

“The Camp David Peace Accords serve as an important symbolic and strategic international alliance. My amendment requires the U.S. government to ask Egypt one simple question – is the country willing to abide by its cornerstone agreement with the United States, and the entire Middle East? If the answer is no, then Egypt should not only be deemed unworthy of our billions in foreign assistance; it should give us cause to reconsider the Morsi government’s intentions for the peace and stability of the entire region,” Sen. Paul said.


Bravo!!!

The State Dept just released more money to Morsi and his MBhood friends over the weekend. To start the new week Morsi et al are arresting thier political enemies. What was the causation of Mubarrak being ousted two years ago?

Aid should simply be stopped to both Egypt and Israel.....I'm glad to see any cut in foreign giveaways but this has the whiff of Israeli pandering.

Rand Paul is no friend of Israel so this has nothing to do with pandering to Israel.

No. I trust the Muslim brotherhood more. At least they don't launch direct attacks on our ships, and blame it on Israel.

34 killed, 170 wounded

Since when has the U.S. demanded recipients of aid do anything? To be honest, I don't give a frick if Egypt's new government honors any treaties and agreements made by past administrations. They have right to self determination and sovereignty.
Why doesn't he tell Israel we're going to cut off their aid unless we can inspect their nuclear sites? Since we're so deeply committed to stopping proliferation?

Is this sarcasm?

Are we talking about the same Rand Paul who said "any attack on Israel will be considered an attack on the United States"...?

How about we pass a law that says we stop giving money out period until we stop borrowing it from China.

They sure do have that right but not with U.S. tax dollars. They can do whatever it is they want on their own.

Oh don't get me wrong, I'm not a huge fan of foreign aid...but I find Paul's stance humorous. I'd give him some credit if he made a case for cutting off all foreign aid to everyone, at least then he wouldn't look like just another shil for AIPAC.
