If Democrats cared Egypt's human rights abuses they would stop giving them U.S. arms and aid

Why is the Egyptian regime receiving U.S. aid when it continues to commit human right abuses?

From Politico in March: "On the Senate floor, Paul dinged President Joe Biden for emphasizing human rights in U.S. foreign policy but continuing to arm Egypt. The senator criticized the decision to withhold a relatively small amount of military aid as a 'slap on the wrist' while continuing larger arms sales.

“We should end military sales to Egypt’s criminal masters,” Paul said. “Partially taking away some military aid while offering new sales that are 10 times what we’ve withheld shows weakness in the face of oppression.”

That American aid to Egypt's government was passed by Congress nonetheless.

From the BBC on Monday: "The family of jailed British-Egyptian pro-democracy activist Alaa Abdel Fattah, who is on hunger strike, say they have received proof he is alive.

A letter to his mother written two days ago says he is 'drinking water again' and 'receiving medical attention'.

'I can sleep today without nightmares,' his sister said in response.

His family had not heard from him since he started refusing water on 6 November to coincide with the start of the COP27 climate conference in Sharm el-Sheikh…

The 40 year old, who is imprisoned for allegedly 'spreading false news', has become a symbol of the 60,000 political prisoners believed by human rights groups to be languishing in Egyptian jails. Egypt insists there are none."
