Egyptian democracy activist: ‘President Obama needs to stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood’ [VIDEO]
4:06 AM 01/01/2013
Meunier, a Coptic Christian, is head of the Al Haya Party in Egypt and leader of the U.S. Copts Association. After spending many years studying and working in the United States, Meunier returned to Egypt in 2007 and ultimately participated in the Tahrir Square protests that brought down the regime of Hosni Mubarak in 2011.
On Dec. 19, in between round one and two of voting on Egypt’s recently passed constitution, Meunier visited The Daily Caller to discuss what he sees going on in the Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Egypt.
Now, he says, “under the Brotherhood people go and burn churches, attack Christians, kidnap young girls, do what they want to do — there is nobody out there to get anybody.”
In the absence of law and order, “every religious fanatic is taking the law into their own hand,” he said.
“We are living in an anarchy in Egypt and probably bordering on civil war,” he added.
As for what Meunier thinks the U.S. should or could do to prevent the Muslim Brotherhood from turning Egypt into a theocracy, he said, “To start, President Obama needs to stop supporting the Muslim Brotherhood flat out.”
He concluded the interview by pressing the point: “The Obama administration should be ashamed of itself for supporting this regime, meeting its leadership and allowing it to be called a friend of the U.S.”
Watch TheDC’s full interview with Meunier, in which he responds to whether he was naive to believe the Muslim Brotherhood would act in good faith to build a democratic Egypt post-Mubarak, whether he now wishes Mubarak was back in power and where Egypt goes from here.
