The following message has just been transmitted to the White House
Dear President Obama.
The Alliance of Egyptian Americans is very disappointed and highly concerned about the apparent shift in US position on the Egyptian crisis. Just one or two days ago you personally publicly declared that the “transition must be meaningful and must begin now”. Yet Secretary Clinton and Ambassador Wisner talking to the Munich meeting seem to suggest giving Mubarak months to manage the transition himself?
This totally unacceptable to the Egyptian American community.
The Alliance backs Dr. ElBaradei’s position announced at CNN Program GPS today of a three person presidential council taking over from President Mubarak Today to start the transition. They would dissolve the current fraudulently elected parliament, suspend the current constitution and draft a temporary constitution, form a care taker technocratic cabinet to run the day management of the country. During one years time a permanent modern secular constitution is to be drafted and ratified and preparing for parliamentary and presidential election.
The Alliance for the Egyptian American (AEA) is a US non-profit non-partisan tax-exempt 501 (c)(3)- Florida Corporation. Membership is open to all US citizens and Permanent residents of Egyptian origin. AEA provides a forum for its members to meet and exchange their ideas and views about issues of concern to them, to the US, and to Egypt.
The primary goals of The Alliance are to promote true democracy, equity, social justice, cross-cultural understanding, tolerance, and sustainable development in Egypt, and to empower the Egyptian American community in the US.
The Alliance is organized for educational and charitable purposes. Its goals and objectives are to serve the best interests of Egyptian Americans and to advocate for healthy relations between the US and the Egyptian people.
