Recently, Dr. Sadek Raouf Ebeid, whose articles we have published in the past, appeared on a prominent Egyptian television program for nearly 20 minutes to discuss the case of Malik Obama. While there has essentially been both a mainstream and conservative media blackout in America on this scandal, it has captured the attention of tens of millions of Egyptians.
Here is an edited, shorter version of the intervies – with subtitles – between Ebeid and Al Kahera we Nas:
Prominent Arabic newspaper Al-Wafd also picked up on Ebeid’s interview (translated):
Sadek Raouf Ebeid, an Egyptian doctor in the U.S., implored the U.S. Congress to investigate the scandal involving Malik Obama, the brother of U.S. President Obama, saying that by providing Malik’s organization with American taxpayer dollars, the American people are also aiding Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir.
Ebeid, in a televised interview via telephone, said he had notified members of the U.S. Congress that according to the laws of the U.S., Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir is a war criminal, and is prohibited from entering the United States and that because Malik provides material support to al-Bashir, he too qualifies as an enemy combatant / terrorist.
The doctor pointed out that the U.S. authorities have overlooked the laws as they apply to the U.S. president’s brother.
During the interview, Ebeid challenged the U.S. Embassy in Egypt to dispute any of the four allegations he brought forth. In the live interview, hosted by a very well known newscaster in Egypt, Dr. Naeela Emara, Ebeid was asked to lay out the allegations. Emara adopted Ebeid’s public challenge, herself calling on a spokesman from the Embassy to make a statement in response to Ebeid’s claims.
Ebeid’s allegations were as follows:
- That President / General Omar Al-Bashir of Sudan is classified by the current White House and State Department as an enemy combatant and was denied an entry visa to the U.S. for posing a threat to America’s national interest and its homeland security.
- Malik Obama works for one of Al-Bashir’s largest organizations.
- Ebeid referred to the Military Commissions Act (MCA) of 2006, amended in 2009. This law deems anyone who provides an enemy combatant with material support, qualifies as an enemy combatant himself, even if he did not pick up arms against the U.S. himself. This would make Malik Obama an enemy combatant.
- Malik Obama’s Barack H. Obama Foundation (BHOF) was granted 501(c)(3) status to collect money from unwitting U.S. taxpayers, under false pretenses (EIN# 262461343). This status was granted by former IRS official, Lois Lerner. Both Ebeid and Emara highlighted the fact that the BHOF received its status on a Sunday (June 26, 2011). In the interview, Emara sarcastically stated that Lerner obviously, “…opened the office on a Sunday morning to give Malik what he wants.”
Ebeid warned Dr. Emara that her broadcasting his allegations in this public manner will open the gates of hell her against.
Dr. Emara replied stating, “Egyptians have gone through hell before. They fear hell no more!”
It remains unclear whether the White House will issue a denial or continue to hide its head in the sand in fear of the American public knowing anything about Malik Obama.
Considering that State Department spokesman Marie Harf admitted to continuing dialogue with the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, the Obama administration is showing no signs of engaging in this scandal publicly.
In Egypt, it’s exploding.
