Thirty-five Republican members of Congress are calling on House leadership to “withhold all U.S. aid to the Egyptian government” until its new Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated president agrees to abide by “Egypt’s treaties, promote peace with Israel, and continue to recognize Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.” 


The letter, organized by Rep. Joe Walsh (R., Ill.), a vocal critic of Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood, urges leaders on both sides of the aisle to “re-think the more than $2 billion in aid that it gives the Egyptian government every year” in light of the election of Mohamed Mursi, a Muslim Brotherhood-affiliated leader, as president.
