Not A Single Rich Arab State Is Mentioned
Share

"Moussa said Egypt needed a $12 billion credit line, with money from the IMF, World Bank, United States, European Union and other friendly states, listing Russia, Japan, China, South Korea, Singapore, Turkey, Malaysia and Indonesia."

What's wrong with this picture?
Every state listed, with the exception of Turkey and Indonesia, neither of which can be expected to contribute very much, is non-Muslim. There's no mention of Saudi Arabia. No mention of the United Arab Emirates. No mention of Kuwait. No mention of rich little Qatar with its waddling Emir, eager to throw his, and his country's, money-based weight around.
Why is this farcical situation allowed to continue? How is it that Egyptians are allowed even to think they can get away with quadrupling their population -- now over 80 million, and headed rapidly toward 120 milion by 2020 -- and always to expect that they can rely on the non-Muslim countries and non-Muslim-funded institutions, such as the IMF.
It's absurd.
The Muslim members of OPEC have received, without lifting a finger, and purely as a result of an accident of geology, nearly twenty trilion dollars since 1973 alone. Qatar, Kuwait, the U.A.E., and Saudi Arabia collectively have several trillion dollars still in surpluses.
But the Western and other non-Muslim countries are expected to support Egyptians as they exponentially -- here the word fits -- multiply?
Nonsense. Not a Western cent, in disguised tribute camouflaged as humanitarian aid, should be given.
Let fellow members of the Umma be asked. And then they can contribute, or not. Either way will prove salutary in the war-without-end  to contain the Camp of Islam. .
