Egyptian-Made Anti-Obama YouTube ‘Goes Viral’

From the Jerusalem Post:

Egyptian anti-Obama video goes viral, blames him for siding with Muslim Brotherhood

By ARIEL BEN SOLOMON | August 4, 2013

US President Barack Obama appears to have angered supporters of ousted Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, as well as supporters of the army coup that toppled him on July 3…

An example of the vitriol in the country can be seen in a new video clip featuring a song by Egyptian performer Sama Elmasry.

In fact, Ms. Elmasry is a highly revered belly-dancer.

Titled “You Obama, Your Father, Mother,” it attacks the US president for allegedly preferring Islamic radicals over the army.

"Allegedly"? Also, we suspect something was lost in the translation of the title. (For the record, the video contains images and English-language captions that may not be suitable for family viewing.)

It has gone viral, with over 160,000 views since last week.

The clip features Obama in traditional Islamic dress. Elmasry curses him while mentioning that he had called for former president Hosni Mubarak to leave immediately, seeming to imply that this proved he was pro-Brotherhood.

The song also mentions Obama’s support for Islamist led Turkey as well as Israel. It is highly nationalistic in tone and ends with a photo of Gen. Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, who led the anti-Morsi coup…

Could this be why we had to close down all our embassies in the Middle East on Obama’s birthday? Will Obama demand that Ms. Elmasry be put in jail?

    Have seen it. Loved it.

    Hillarious, although a little seems to be lost in translation but you get the gist of it.

    I think the “Hey Obama, mother, father”, may be off by just 3 few letters.

    • Kytross says:

      Could be 3 letters, but it could also be some poorly translated colloquialism; a call for Obama & everyone else to pay attention.

      I don’t care for anyone to tell America to shut up. It gets the old dander up. Though I will concede I don’t like being represented by a host of people I disagree with, who I frequently wish would stop talking.
