The Egyptian woman who told Obama to “shut up [his] mouth” is back in the spotlight once more, demanding that the U.S. president and Congress refrain from interfering in Egypt’s internal affairs.

Mona al-Beheiri, who was interviewed by prominent Egyptian journalist Tawfik Okasha, addressed her message not only to the American president but also to all the members of the U.S. Congress.

Speaking in English, she said: “This is a message to House White, to Congress America and to President Barack Obama and Catherine Ashton, to John McCain, to John Kerry and … everybody,” she said while reading a letter she had prepared in advance.

“We don’t [want] America to interfere in the affairs of the people Egyptians, because in the affairs belong to Egyptians only,” she added.

In the video, Beheiri also reminded Obama of the events of 9/11, before ending her message with the usual “Shut up your mouth … everybody.”
