Letter to John Boehner From Voice of the Copts

The following letter was sent by Dr. Ashraf Ramelah to Speaker of the House John Boehner on March 10, 2015.

The Honorable John Boehner
Speaker United States House of Representatives
Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Speaker Boehner,

Please allow me to congratulate you on your tremendous success in having Israel’s Prime Minister Netanyahu address Congress. The world needs to hear the truth from our friend, Israel. For decades Israel has suffered terrorist aggression from neighboring states.

Allowing Iran to have nuclear weapons would not only be a danger to the State of Israel but a threat to the entire world. At your invitation, Americans heard the Israeli Prime Minister unfold the truth to the American Congress. The positive and urgent message of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s speech will resonate for some time to come and hopefully lead to the desired goal.

Likewise, another important leader in the Middle East may prove to be enlightening on the issue of fighting Islamic terrorism. I refer to the president of Egypt, Abd El Fatah El Sisi. If Egypt’s current president were invited to address Congress, America could know firsthand the works of Al Sisi’s government in eradicating terrorism.

Your invitation to the Israeli leader has shown America’s support of Israel in light of much opposition. Having President El Sisi address the Congress would offer Americans the same opportunity to show support for Egypt’s initiatives — tempering Islamic clerics, approaching Coptic Christians, and fighting extremist organizations linked to terror.

Mr. Speaker, you have already been instrumental in illustrating America’s support of real leadership against terrorism in the Middle East. Extending a hand now to President El Sisi would only emphasize America’s resolve to stand with rational and courageous leaders and support the outcomes of reduced terrorism in the Middle East and around the world.

For this reason, I kindly request, on behalf of my organization, Voice of the Copts, that you extend an invitation to President El Sisi of Egypt to address a joint session of the American Congress in the very near future.

Thank you.

  1. Al Sisi has already said in a recorded interview that he has an invitation, so I doubt the lack of an invitation is the problem. It seems much more likely that he doesn’t believe his security can be assured by a White House that has embraced a group that Egypt has declared to be a terrorist organization.

    • It would be unhealthy for Al-Sisi to come here. He has no real friends on either side of the isle.

      The GOP is so badly compromised that it may as well be a branch of the Obama administration thanks to people like Boehner and McConnell. Both of whom cut deals with Reid and Pelosi.

  2. I say yes! Al-Sisi has made dramatic changes to Egypt for the better. I would love to have him talk in the well of the U;S. congress.

    • Babs, you can bet that Al-Sisi was NOT Obama’s choice to lead Egypt. He is forming an alliance with Israel (among other things) in an attempt to resurrect the shattered economy there. Egypt is in the Muslim Brotherhood/Obama LOSS column for sure.

      It will be decades before America’s reputation across the globe recovers from Obama’s travesties. He makes it look like simple stupidity but I think it’s much worse than that.

      • It really is very illuminating that Barack Hussein Obama and the majority of our Western European leaders are against Sisi.
        When the Egyptian people rose up against an oppressive Muslim Brotherhood government they were thankfully, eventually supported by the military.
        The Western view espoused by our media is that Sisi militarily deposed a legitimate government – not only blatant lies, but just how stupid are we expected to be to believe that!

  3. Al Sisi is a good man, (for a muslim) Egypt can ill afford to lose him at this time; let’s hope he does NOT go.

    He would be safe in Russia, but in Obama’s America………….

  4. Who handled Bibi’s security? Hire them to protect Al-Sisi — we the people deserve to hear from people like him (Al-Sis), instead of being spoon-fed lies, damn lies, and all the rest of the crap-sandwich served up by the media daily.

    • Maybe Netanyahu publicly “accepted” Secret Service protection but *also* had Mossad or the equivalent bodyguard protection?

      Nobody got near him, in any case. Maybe the same set-up, whatever it was, could protect al-Sisi. But he should check w/Netanyahu first….the Secret Service is falling apart at the seams.

  5. Yes, have al-Sisi testify against al-Isis.I would just as soon have the truth than O’bama’s taqiya and fitman.

  6. Oh how we wish that were possible! You see Obama’s jihad does not allow either he or any of the Democrats to support you. He’s into the Caliphate. Will he become a caliph? Oh and there’s Hillary who wants to be Queen. Find out about Huma Abedin, her long-time aid and called a Muslim Brotherhood Princess. Find the missing e-mails between Hillary and Huma and XXX. On the Republican side of the aisle- -they are swimming (drowning is more like it) in corruption. Both parties have been bought to some extent by the Muslim Brotherhood. Grover Norquist is an intermediary. Yes, the same people who tried to ruin your country. The people of the U.S. would be for this but since when do the people have any say in our current totalitarian government.
