Egypt’s Citizens: Buh-Bye USA, Hello Iran

Fars News Agency is reporting on a poll of Egyptians that suggests that the citizens trust Iran more than America, and want Iran to replace the US as a strategic partner.

An overwhelming majority of Egyptians support replacing US economic aid with funds from Iran or Turkey, according to new poll results, while a decreasing number of the subjects view the treaty with Israel as positive.

Eighty-two percent of the Egyptians questioned opposed US economic aid to Egypt – according to the figures released this weekend by the US-based Gallup polling organization – up from 71% in December 2011 and 52% last April.

How’s that “Arab Spring” working out, President Obama?
