Egyptian protestors taunt Clinton with cries of "Monica, Monica"

By Elise Labott, reporting from Cairo

Egyptian protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's motorcade Sunday and shouted, "Monica, Monica, Monica" as she left the newly reopened U.S. Consulate in Alexandria.

Clinton said she was in Alexandria to answer critics who believe Washington has taken sides in Egyptian politics. There were already vocal protesters at the start of her visit to the consulate, forcing the ceremony to be moved inside.

    What many people here don't realize is that the Egyptian people's disdain is NOT so much against Hillary Clinton than at the United States.

    What we see unfolding in Egypt today is well in line with what our own rabidly anti-Semite, anti-US and generally anti-all things non-Islamic Mr, Fareed Zakaria has been nearly suggesting to the Egyptians, while MISLEADING the naive Obama administration.

    So, the GREATEST danger to America and our ally Israel comes NOT merely from the Muslim Brotherhood and other radicals in the ME, but EVEN MORE SO from their covert proponents such as Mr. Zakaria & CAIR right here in America.

    Here are some of Morsi's acts and how they correspond to how Americans are being DELIBERATELY MISLED by his supporters right here in America:

    a) First presidential DEMAND – Release of the 1993 WTC bomber the one-eyed Egyptian cleric Omar Abdel Rahman

    b) First presidential Promise – Imposition of the Sharia in Egypt, which means relegating the Coptics & minorities to second class citizens and organized state sponsored oppression.

    c) First presidential owe – To wage Jihad against Israel and as yet EXPLICITILY unstated....Jihad against America, and officially nullifying the Egypt-Israel peace treaty....which will follow very soon.

    And, most of these acts conform to what our "so-called" moderate CNN's Mr. Fareed Zakaria has been prophesizing albeit in his sugarcoated writings for naive Americans.

    Here are just a few examples of his statements:
    a) Egypt-Israel peace treaty was between TWO REGIMES and NOT Two Peoples!! (Suggesting that Egypt abrogate the treaty). Ref: “How Democracy Can Work in the Middle East” Fareed Zakaria Time Feb 3rd 2011

    b) “The Danger is from us (the US) and NOT from them (Al-Qaeda & Islamic radicals). Ref: Zakaria “Reflections on 9/11 and its Aftermath” CNN-GPS Sept 9th, 2011.

    c) US support for Mubarak made Al-Qaeda hate us!!!! (Ref: “Bahrain will pay heavy price for crackdown” CNN Feb 18th 2011

    d) The problems all over the ME was b'coz oil was over $105 a barrel (suggesting that the US & Europe had a role in stirring up trouble there). Ref: (Ref: “Could Middle East Tensions Boil Over” Zakaria CNN GPS Feb 24th 2012).
    In the above story.

    (d) Mr. Zakaria also takes the credit by being the VERY FIRST journalist of repute(?) to MISLEADINGLY claim that an US & Israeli attack on Iran will be seen as YET ANOTHER front of the US war on Islam, something NOT even radical Muslim countries have claimed. On the contrary, the Saudis have been urging US to attack Iran, by saying that we need to "chop the head of the snake".

    There are a zillion other instances where Mr. Zakaria has been CONSISTENTLY batting for the Muslim Brotherhood & other radicals.

    One can only imagine the danger to America if this man indeed is nominated as the next US Sec. of State in a second Obama administration as it is rumored to be!

      As a Bollywoodbaboon you do seem to be peddling a load of rubbish. The biggest threat to America is the out-sourcing of US jobs to India and the mass immigration of illegal Indians to the US, aided and abetted by their kosher allies. It is clear to everyone that the Indians have been anointed as the strategic allies of the koshers. Without kosher backing the Indians would remain what they effectively are, coolies. Bring every single US job back to the US from Coolieland.

        After watching Fareed's reoprt today with Nathan Myhrvold I was a bit dismayed. This issue was touched on briefly, but covered in such a way that did not let the viewpoints raised in this original segment shine through.

      A far bigger threat to the free world than Iran are India's weapons of mass destruction. It is high time that the US military took out India's nuclear weapons. India is a country where Christian priests are burnt alive and Christian nuns gang-rapes with impunity

    It appears that not everybody in Egypt worships this Hilary Clinton Almighty, the big mouthpiece for the M.I.C. in Washington. If I were an Egyptian, neither would I!!! The reason she's over there is to try to keep Egypt within the grip of the powerful M.I.C. in Washington as has been the case since 1972 when Anwar Sadat initiated the process!

      Their bellies swewllith wholly impossible cropsdunno if the pun was intended, but it's a terrific one.I like this a lot. I don't know if I quite get the last stanza: I can see us as beached, all right, but I can't see us as worshipers of inertia. I love the whole progression up till then, though. Especially the clipped toenail in place of the moon.

    Why they would haunt someone that supported the overthrow of Mubarak and nearly 3 billion in aid a year is beyond me.
