An unmitigated power grab five 9/11 -- the term president of Egypt has sparked deadly riots on the streets of Cairo and beyond tonight over the weekend former Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohamed Morsi.
Essentially granted himself sweeping new powers that critics fear could allow him to become a virtual dictator.
Now while the White House continues to struggle to respond to this brash behavior from the Middle East first elected Islamist president.
Well we aren't exactly surprised by any of this for months on -- we were sounding the alarm on this very program.
About the real threat posed by -- and his allies in the radical organization.
Known as the Muslim Brotherhood but of course our president in his unwillingness to sit down and his willingness in cases the sit down with everybody and anybody.
Well he ignored the obvious warning signs including more -- believed.
That 9/11 may have been an inside job.
And by the way let's not forget -- also referred to the Israelis -- animals instead the president applauded what he called quote genuine democracy.
People -- -- just spoken.
Their voices have been heard and Egypt will never be the same for egyptians have made it clear.
That nothing less than genuine democracy.
Will carry the day.
Well wrong again a genuine democracy -- the president spoke is now fading fast and Egypt and sources have confirmed to Fox News.
That mobs are preparing to return to the streets of Cairo tomorrow for yet another day of demonstrations.
Joining me now with more on this is act for American president.
Brigitte Gabriel and from the American together foundation Michael -- -- back with us.
You know Michael WT.
Here's a got a refers to the Israelis.
Supports Hamas in this latest conflict the Hamas charter calls for the destruction of Israel.
And you -- on this program telling me everything's gonna be fine this is democracy.
Now the radical islamists -- grabbed all the power and Obama is giving him credibility.
Now tell me you still support what happened in to -- square is a good thing.
Sean you have been right on that particular show but I'm very hopeful about the Egyptian people that number to lead -- radical.
Technical -- -- -- -- he has a lot of -- you think they've already yeah it's comments.
His columns of god his comments about Farrah but you got did this against him -- military is against them.
Did you -- jurists on against and the protestors.
The Egyptian people are against you saying that what what are they gonna rise up against them assassinate him everyday and I I don't play.
200 people protesters are wounded in a demonstration against as most -- you guys.
And I think didn't continue people who win at the end I am very hopeful about that -- that there platform this I share your home and not just gonna -- They're not just gonna let most of walk whoever does -- -- is a very dangerous man right.
-- -- -- -- -- -- About it isn't it well I was right you told me he would turn out to be moderate and you didn't turn around -- -- -- but I think the greater effort in and knocked.
Bridget I think the greater likelihood tell me if I'm wrong is that -- Tennessee people mowed down.
That they rise up against this radical Islamist what's the more likely outcome.
And that's exactly what's gonna happen those who are rising against -- are gonna be mowed down.
We are witnessing right before our organize a revolution not a lake at the Iran Khomeini revolution in 1979.
And let's not forget to also sign that -- what the majority of the people in Egypt that I elected -- -- elected the Muslim Brotherhood.
And gave the Muslim Brotherhood as well as the nor does a lot this party over two thirds of seats in the parliament over 70%.
Of the people -- Egypt wants -- we outlaw.
All surveys I showed that that minority are demonstrating but we are witnessing before our own eyes it dictatorship in -- making an Islamic theocracy -- dictatorship and that.
-- -- -- let me ask you this in this latest conflict with Israel in your opinion.
Did President Obama and secretary of state hit Hillary Clinton.
Did they give this radical Islamist a win.
And did they help give credibility.
To Hamas whose charter calls for the destruction of Israel.
Giving billions in -- did they give them away.
I yes and they did that because what this administration as a blind to is the fact that Hamas as an offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood Hamas looked -- -- with the respect Nichols -- as a leader in the Muslim Brotherhood so basically we have the Marcy Hamas can't coming together.
And phoning the Israelis and the world and establishing its crews are and what next solo let the finding some Hamas and -- itself can -- strengthen.
And few months later or may be here later that when I got back into a conference should.
I agree with you I think it was I think Obama and Clinton gave Hamas and more -- you win here here's the question Michael yes why don't we cut off.
Unless and until they have real democracy.
Would that be fair.
I am with you why it is fair but remember Charles Krauthammer was on -- -- -- few months ago.
He was against it because is going to a hard.
The relationship between Israel and Egypt.
It is from that point of view he was not fail and of that and you have good within that time I'm I'm with you on that we -- thought -- -- -- -- on behalf.
Well they're not maybe.
And Obama and Obama sending Hillary thought argument but is he out.
We need -- -- and I now let's say they are abusing the funds.
-- drink undergraduate.
And that's what we haven't -- against -- funding and have them come to the Washington visit by Malibu and all of these other -- girls.
Well you don't assume that funding for miles if you don't do this we are not going to -- the fun.
We're not gonna support you leave the guys to deceive both our country needs somebody more than Egypt.
Great point and very good point we do need the money more than Egypt.
