Dear Mr. President, it is shame to abandon an American citizen ‪#‎Mohamed_Sultan‬n, who has been detained by the Egyptian authorities without trial since September 2013, and not doing anything to get him freed.‪ #_Mohamed_Sultan‬ has been on hunger strike for a very long time, and his health is getting worse every day, He sent you a letter, and he received no response neither from you nor from any body in your administration. In Feb. 2012 your administration was outraged by the arrest of NGO workers in Egypt. A military airplane landed in Cairo Airport and whisked them out before going to trial. What kind of a message you are sending here? Do you respond to American citizens in trouble abroad based on their racial or ethnic origin ? Or you prefer to compromise the life of American citizens for political considerations ?

It is very sad to see an American citizen treated that way by his government.....
