Clinton jeered in Egypt with chants of “Monica, Monica”

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was taunted by chants of “Monica, Monica” by tomato-throwing demonstrators as she visited the Egyptian port city of Alexandria on Sunday.

The chants, referring to the Monica Lewinsky scandal when her husband, Bill Clinton, was president, were heard outside the US consulate as she visited for its reopening.

An embarrassed Egyptian security official said they were chanting “Monica, Monica” and “Irhal, Clinton” (Get out, Clinton.)

Tomatoes, shoes and a water bottle were thrown at part of Clinton’s motorcade as it pulled up, protected by riot police, although a US official said Clinton’s own vehicle was not hit.

The protest appears to have been the result of suspicions that Washington had helped the Muslim Brotherhood win elections in Egypt in the wake of last year’s ouster of president Hosni Mubarak after 18 days of massive street protests.

    Guess they knew more than we thought! Yes, Government was instrumental in putting Muslim Brotherhood in charge of Egypt, because they’d go along with a Central Banking scheme.

  • Good for them. Peace,

    • Barbara, I can’t stand the Clinton (and most liberals), but nobody deserves to be treated like that.
      I am glad that the people of Egypt are well informed and willing to take action; I just wish they found another way.
