    Well Egyptians have always had a poor opinion of Americans, it really shouldn't come as a shock that they don't like us.

    Yes, we actually give the Egyptians about 1 billion dollars a year in aid, they are the second highest donor besides Israel, however the opinion of the US on the Egyptian street has always been very poor. The money we gave the Egyptian government never went to the Egyptian people, they never saw any of that.The Egyptians blame us for alot of their problems because we were good friends with Mubarak for decades and armed his Military, even though Obama did his best to escort Mubarak out most Egyptians still have a sour taste in their mouth when it comes to the US, but than again that is the same with every Arab country anyways.
