No more American foreign aid for Egypt
President George W. Bush; U.S. Congress

Inasmuch as the United States provides $2.2 billion in foreign aid annually to Egypt, we call upon President George W. Bush and all members of Congress to withhold all American monies to that country, which, dependent on American charity, has no charity for the unfortunate refugees in her midst.
We call upon Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice to rebuke the Egyptian government publicly and announce the suspension of diplomatic relations with that country until President Hosni Mubarak punishes the 4,000 security troppers responsible for the brutality.
We call upon U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton to investigate the UNHCR to discover why, in light of the worsening situation in Darfur, that organization insisted on these refugees returning to Sudan, where the government is committing genocide against black Africans.
We call upon Ambassador Bolton to demand of UNHCR why they blamed the Sudanese refugees for having been savagely beaten and killed by the Egyptian shock troopers.
American tax dollars should not be used to fund brutal, repressive, and inhospitable regimes like Egypts. American tax dollars should not be allocated to organizations like UNHCR which fail to fulfil their mandate.
