Egyptian belly dancer Sama Elmasry unleashed harsh criticism on the so-called leader of the free world in a video she produced titled, “You Obama, Your Father, Mother.”
From the Jerusalem Post:
An example of the vitriol in the country can be seen in a new video clip featuring a song by Egyptian performer Sama Elmasry. Titled “You Obama, Your Father, Mother,” it attacks the US president for allegedly preferring Islamic radicals over the army. 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.
Although the video production is a bit low-budget, she still fearlessly goes after U.S. Egyptian ambassador Anne W. Patterson, calling her an “old, bitch woman” and telling her to “stop messing.”
During protests that occurred earlier this year, Egyptian demonstrators expressed similar discontent and blamed the White House, and specifically Obama and Patterson, for backing the Muslim Brotherhood, although these types of protesters weren’t widely reported by the Western media.
