They at least aren't spreading terrorism all over the region like Russia and China's client Iran.

Not much of an election when all the political opposition is in jail.

That money pays for the peace treaty between Israel and Egypt and it keeps Egypt from falling back into the Russian orbit. Seen that way it is cheap insurance. I don't like Sisi or much of anything about how Egypt is run, but I liked it a lot less when the Soviets had two battalions of nuclear armed ballistic missiles in Egypt and Egypt was for all intents and purposes a forward base for the Soviets to attack Europe if it ever came to that. Are you old enough to remember when Israeli and Soviet pilots were fighting almost daily over the Suez Canal? I do. Things today are far from perfect but in the case of Egypt throwing some money at them to stay on the side of the US is money well spent.
