Egyptian human rights activist asks Obama to stop defending Morsi: "Further American statements supporting the current Egyptian regime will only lead to more Egyptians being beaten, raped, tortured, and killed" - Jihad Watch: ""Open letter to President Obama," by Bahieddin Hassan in Al-Ahram Weekly, February 6 (thanks to Mona):
...Mr President, when I spoke with you in 2010, I asked why the US administration condemns repressive practices in Iran while remaining silent when Arab regimes engage in the same violations. Over recent months, statements by your administration have similarly failed to address violations and have even blamed protesters and victims for violence committed in the context of demonstrations. Indeed, the stances of your administration have given political cover to the current authoritarian regime in Egypt and allowed it to fearlessly implement undemocratic policies and commit numerous acts of repression."
