A music video featuring an Arabic-singing belly dancer voicing profanity-laced lyrics that accuse President Barack Obama of supporting terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood has gone viral in Egypt.
The video - "You Obama, Your Father, Mother" - features performer Sama Elmasry brandishing a sword next to Obama's photo as well as various Photoshopped images of the U.S. president including dressed as Osama bin Laden and as a baby in diapers

The lyrics chastise Obama and U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson for their perceived lack of support for the Egyptian Army which has been in control since the ousting of President Mohammed Morsi last month.
Among the lyrics, according to the video's subtitled translation (emphasis added):
Hey Obama, Hey Obama Hey Obama, support the terrorism Traitor like the Brotherhood members
Obama say it's a coup That's not your business dirty man Obama say it's a coup That's not your father, mother business And you Patterson, stop messing Old bit** woman
Contrary to the lyrics' suggestion, the U.S. administration has not officially designated the events of early July as a "coup" which under U.S. law would have forced a stop to American financial aid to Egypt.
The singer then blasts the Obama administration for its call on the Egyptian military last month to release Morsi from jail, after European countries had done the same. She sings that Obama should cede from that position or she will "stab" him and mockingly brandishes a sword against Obama's photo. She asks why he "told [secular former President Hosni] Mubarak to leave immediately," implying that Obama always wanted the Islamists to take power.
Besides her sword, Elmasry also brandishes some choice insults including calling Obama a "jerk" and telling him, "f*** you" over threats to cut back foreign aid to Egypt.
You want us to release Morsi Hey Obama, you are stupid, bad man You want us to release Morsi Stop this or I will stab you Why then you told Mubarak To leave immediately?
You threaten us with the U.S. aid F*** it and f*** you You are a jerk Obaaaaa You threaten us with the U.S. aid Your ambassador is very wicked woman Al-Sisi has beaten you And Egyptian people supported him
You meet Al-Noor Islamic party HA..HA..HA Now we know all the secrets Egyptians are not idiots You meet Al-Noor Islamic party The party is sneaky and menless [sic]
She then accuses Obama of joining forces with "the terrorists," calling them "all the disgusting guys":
Hey Obama, your father, your mother You and the terrorists Listen to me Obama Our army is very strong You Obama, your father, your mother All the disgusting guys We are the people tell you You can't fool us You tried to play it But you can't play this wicked game With us because we are the Alfa
At the 3:36 point in the video, Elmasry switches to English, in which she blasts Obama for his friendship with Israel, Turkey and Qatar. Qatar has strong ties with the Muslim Brotherhood , having provided $8 billion in aid to Morsi's government over the past two years, according to Lebanon's Daily Star. She says:
Your father and your mother Your Israel, your Turkey, and your Qatar All of you , Go to hell! Listen, Obama We are Egyptian We are civilization Are you listen, Obama?
At the end of the video, English script appears on screen saying: "When Egypt talking, should be America shut up."
During the massive demonstrations leading up to the ousting of President Morsi last month, numerous anti-American signs were seen in the crowd blasting Obama and Ambassador Patterson over their perceived affinity for the Muslim Brotherhood. An image that appeared repeatedly and was also seen in the video showed Patterson meeting with Muslim Brotherhood Spiritual Guide Mohammed Badie.
