If I was the leader of Egypt and was dealing with the possible cancellation of the USA's $1.5  foreign aid grant, here's what I'd be doing. 

I'd be tracking the discussions by the US media, primarily by right wingers, calling for canceling the grant. 

I'd be thinking, "f*ck the USA and their $1.5 billion grant. Where else can I get the money and built new alliances?"

I'd be thinking, can I get some of it from China and/or Russia? Should I be talking to Iran about getting some of it in oil?  Should I approach Saudi Arabia?

I'd be thinking, how can I exploit this embarrassing video that I know full well the USA's freedom of speech laws made possible. 

I'd be looking at the thousands of Islamophobic hateful comments on the youtube videos and wondering how they will affect the Arab street... and how I could use them to my advantage politically and to consolidate my power.

I'd be thinking about how to use this to change the power balance between Egypt and Israel-- and between Egypt and the US and other states as well. 


 

Rob Kall has spent his adult life as an awakener and empowerer-- first in the field of biofeedback, inventing products, developing software and a music recording label, MuPsych, within the company he founded in 1978-- Futurehealth, and founding, organizing and running 3 conferences: Winter Brain, on Neurofeedback and consciousness, Optimal Functioning and Positive Psychology (a pioneer in the field of Positive Psychology, first presenting workshops on it in 1985) and Storycon Summit Meeting on the Art Science and Application of Story-- each the first of their kind.  Then, when he found the process of raising people's consciousness and empowering them to take more control of their lives  one person at a time was too slow, he founded Opednews.com-- which has been the top search result on Google for the terms liberal news and progressive opinion for several years. Rob began his Bottom-up Radio show, broadcast on WNJC 1360 AM to Metro Philly, also available on iTunes, covering the transition of our culture, business and world from predominantly Top-down (hierarchical, centralized, authoritarian, patriarchal, big)  to bottom-up (egalitarian, local, interdependent, grassroots, archetypal feminine and small.) Recent long-term projects include a book, Bottom-up-- The Connection Revolution, debillionairizing the planet and the Psychopathy Defense and Optimization Project.
