Marc Lynch, Director of Institute for Middle East Studies at George Washington University, wrote in Foreign Policy about the escalating anti-Americanism in Egypt:
“Even longtime observers of Egyptian rhetoric have been taken aback by the vitriol and sheer lunacy of the current wave of anti-American rhetoric. The streets have been filled with fliers, banners, posters, and graffiti denouncing President Barack Obama for supporting terrorism and featuring Photoshopped images of Obama with a Muslim-y beard or bearing Muslim Brotherhood colors.”
Some of these images that Lynch mentions here actually appear in Elmasry’s music video which has gained more than 160,000 views since it was uploaded on July 30. The controversial performer who reportedly studied English literature in college had another viral video from June mocking the Muslim Brotherhood and president Mohamad Morsi who was later overthrown by the military.
