U.N. Bilat #2 – President Trump and Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi…

President Donald Trump meets with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi for a bilateral discussion during the U.N. General Assembly meeting.

President el-Sisi was one of the key Arab leaders who stood in support of President Trump prior to the historic U.S-Saudi Summit in 2017. CTH readers will likely have followed the importance of el-Sisi in achieving regional stability and the elimination of extremism throughout the mid-east.

    I think even el-Sisi believes in PDJT’s promises made, promises kept, track record.

    El-Sisi will go down in history as a great man / he will be to all Egyptians like George Washington is to us Americans . I think El-Sisi was called by the true and living God to help the nation of Egypt at a very dangerous time . I hope the Egyptians support him for their benefit . America needs tosee the Muslum Brotherhood for what they are “ terrorist”

      Fully agree Wayne robinson.

      I have absolutely nothing in common with the Egyptian people, but it was very difficult to watch (from afar) the damage that the muzzie bro-hood did to Egypt during Obama’s presidency.

      Before Mr El-Sisi took charge of the situation, that is.

      I am very glad he and Pres Trump are on the same page.

      I agree and have the utmost respect for the man. Before Trump arrived on the scene, el-Sisi was making some bold moves against the Muslim extremists who were very active in North Africa. He also has consistently stated that Islam is the only major world religion that has not undergone a Reformation–and that it really is time that it does so. Unlike the Iranian mullahs and even the royalty in Saudi Arabia, he values a modern society and wants Islam to be a part of it as Christianity and Judaism are. I hope he is around the Middle Eastern scene for many years to come…Trump clearly values el-Sisi as do his countrymen.

      • I remember hearing his speech calling out the clerics and insisting that Islam “self-correct” (my term, his was more elegant) and accept responsibility to behave morally in the world community.
        El-sisi is a great leader and courageous man, much like Sadat.
        This is terrific for world peace, the Middle East, and for the great country of Egypt (we’ve visited twice, it is fantastic place) with amazing history and one of the world’s oldest cultures.
        FWIW, much of the oldest manuscripts of our Christian Bible were found in Egypt (the climate helps).

    I LOVE President el-Sisi! This man believed in our President after the first time meeting him while he was just a candidate. Our President will go to Cairo for a visit. He will be treated as a King. They may even commission a Great Pyramid for him😉

    Wife and I were in Egypt this spring during the election. Our Egyptian guide, a Coptic Christian, said support for el-Sisi was so strong that the other candidate wasn’t even campaigning. Parades and motorcades supporting el-Sisi were occurring all over Cairo each night during the election. As a side note, we felt extremely safe for the duration of our 9 day stay in the country and, because tourism is just now beginning to pick up again, crowds were almost non-existent. We have traveled all over the world and this trip was definitely in the top 2 or 3 destinations we have visited…Highly recommend.

    • We went end of June, beginning of July. GREAT trip (also top 2 or 3)! Our Egyptian guide (not Coptic) said el-Sisi was bringing back the tourists and was supportive. Was emptyish – but that was more seasonal than dangerous. People were very friendly and appreciative of the visit. Super recommend Luxor.

        The economy and inflation is a definite problem. But it doesn’t change that many Egyptians did vote for Morsi knowing he is Muslim Brotherhood, aka Sharia, until the economy crashed.

        It will take 20 years for the country to liberate itself from repressive Islam. I’m told more Egyptian young women want to live without the hijab but they don’t dare. TOURISM will give them a helping hand.

        • Agree. Many did vote for Morsi, including our Cairo female guide (who wore a scarf, no hijab) and was terribly disappointed, but still a “revolutionary”. I guess that for some “the beatings must continue until morale improves”.

      As you so aptly described, el-Sisi is an elected leader, called on by the Egyptian people to leave the Egyptian army and serve as President of Egypt.

      And yet our Fake News consistently describes President Sisi as a dictator. Thank you for your remembrances that tell the truth. President Sisi will be remembered as a great man in Egypt.

      I know Armenian Christians that were born in Cairo. They’re trying to leave. Non-Muslim persecution. They walk on eggshells.

      They say Coptic Christians are at the mercy of the Muslim population. They’re very careful in their everyday life and submit. Thus, the tour guides will do same.

      I remain in contact with these people. I like Al Sisi but he has one hell of a Zabiba (head-banging prayer crust on his forehead). His main enemy: Muslim Brotherhood. And 90% of Egyptians hate the Jews.

      Think about the number of churches that were torched during their recent revolution. I think the number is 185. They were torched by smiling Muslims.

      I get a lot of stories out of Egypt. Their judiciary is mostly Sharia Law. And up to 69% of the population is crossbred.

      Do not be fooled. Egypt has a long way to go. But to defeat Islamic terrorism, Al Sisi is the guy.

    Favorite el-Sisi comment:

    They discussed inviting Trump to visit Egypt, and at one point, el-Sisi described Trump as “a unique personality that is capable of doing the impossible.” As the room laughed, Trump responded: “I agree.”

        President El-Sisi is a hero – A few years ago he publicly confronted the religious leaders of Islam in Cairo and suggested that they tone down the “catechism” of militant Islam in the mosques. That was a very, very, very courageous act ! I’m glad that America & Egypt are brought closer by their leaders respecting each other in friendship.

    We (the USA) benefit from President Al Sisi’s friendship as the direct result of a little known “foreign aid” program. He is one of many foreign military leaders our military services have hosted at various US military schools over the years. In 2006 President Al Sisi studied at the US Army War College. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abdel_Fattah_el-Sisi

    President al-Sisi is one of my very favorite world leaders not only for freeing his people from the Muslim Brotherhood regime (put in by Zero and Hag), but he believed in candidate Trump from their first meeting. They are truly bonded and President al-Sisi truly has our President’s back, imo. He also allows Christianity the freedom to be practiced without persecution in Egypt.
