Two Republican U.S. senators slammed Wednesday a law recently passed by Egypt’s president as “draconian” for imposing heavy restrictions and effectively banning the work of non-governmental organizations — the latest among measures cracking down on dissent in the country.

Republican Sens. John McCain and Lindsey Graham urged President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to bring the law on NGOs in line with international standards and the Egyptian constitution.

“Congress should strengthen democratic benchmarks and human rights conditions on U.S. assistance for Egypt,” they said in a statement. […]

The law has triggered wide international backlash and raised concerns over human rights conditions in Egypt. The European Union said the law is “likely to directly affect” its assistance, which relies on cooperation with NGOs. …

THE REAL DEAL:

McCain represents ISIS, slavers, child rapists, crucifiers, beheaders,
murderers and --of course-- Republicans in Arizona.

I’ve noticed the third stooge, Rubio, is keeping his head down these days.

The ISIS creators are saddened that their jihadi buddies are taking it in the shorts.

Egypt, do _not_ listen to McCain and Graham, on any subject. They are evil and do not represent real USA.

Most NGO's are run out of Europe..esp. Duetschland and along with them come the far leftist progressive agenda. They undermine Israeli security by giving the Palestinians everything they want...esp. $$$, due to the average European falling for Arab/Palestinian propaganda about how the superpower Israel is crushing the Palestinians by making them live in mud huts and eat dirt. That and the vestiges of anti-Semitism which is big most of Europe.

Al-Sisi sees the NGO's for what they are...trouble making no-goodnicks.

the issue is that the Egyptian government is fighting back against SorozNazi and co-conspirators who are trying to overthrow the govt... just like Obama did...and install the Moslem Brotherhood terrorist gangsters again in power (noting also that the MB is the parent organization of Abbas and his PLO/Fatah terrorists, they’re very very very bad news and dangerous for any country)

“NGO’s” are nothing more than progressive “community organizers” funded by globalists like Soros to imitate a “civil war”, stir up violent protesters, and provoke besieged governments into reacting to shootings of police and military, riots, and property destruction.

They foment the “color revolutions” and “arab springs” that have brought death and misery to hundreds of thousands since 2011 in Ukraine and Syria

That too, but this guy goes on these world tours shooting his mouth off and meeting with leaders and other movers and shakers.

Someone need to confiscate his Passport/Visa, and remove him for his committee appointments.

We’ll see how much impact he has globally then.
