  • Don't cut aid to Egypt: The hopeful case for supporting Egyptian President SisiAhmed H. Zewail
    November 18, 2014

    Some members of Congress have criticized Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi lately and called for a reduction in or elimination of U.S. military aid as a way of punishing his administration. After meeting with Sisi in Cairo recently and talking to a wide range of citizens there, I have come to understand why most Egyptians now support him. And I believe that cutting foreign aid to Egypt at this point would harm the U.S.-Egypt relationship and have serious consequences for the Middle East.

    October 24, 2014

    The Islamic State (IS), ISIS, ISIL, or under any other name, is a vicious, genocidal terrorist organization cum government.
