Issa Statement on Events in Egypt

Press Release
Jul 3, 2013

WASHINGTON. D.C. – Congressman Darrell Issa (CA-49) released the following statement in response to the removal of the President of Egypt from office:

“While popularly elected, President Morsi’s government curtailed freedom of religion and equal rights for the Egyptian people as the country’s economy fell into a drawn out period of stagnation.  Real democracy is about more than just one election – it requires a framework of justice and respect for the rights of all.  Unfortunately, U.S. policy toward Egypt did too little to promote true democracy and avoid the necessity of the events that have taken place.  The people of Egypt and institutions, including the Egyptian military, historically have been friends and allies to the United States. Our country must support the aspirations of the Egyptian people for a democratic government that respects the rights of all citizens.”
