“This American president is repeating the same mistakes,” El Shafie said. 

“Governor, if I may say loud and clear, the Americans supported Osama bin Laden during the Afghanistan war with the Soviets, and he turned against them. They supported Saddam Hussein during the Iranian war, and he turned against them. They supported the rebels in Libya, [who] killed their American ambassador three months later. Now President Obama is supporting [the] Muslim Brotherhood, supporting the rebels in Syria, and what’s the definition of insanity? Repeating the same action and expecting different outcome.”

In July, El Shafie received international attention for an editorial titled, “The Case for Egypt.” Today, with the crisis in Egypt escalating, El Shafie has posted “The Case for Egypt, Part II,” wherein he criticizes the sloppy media coverage, questions the intentions of the American administration and warns that the Muslim Brotherhood’s battle “is not an attack on Christianity, but rather an attack on the Egyptian society as a whole.”

El Shafie having once been arrested, tortured and sentenced to die in Egypt for defending human rights and fighting for freedom of religion and the rights of minorities.
