    (ANSAmed) - CAIRO, MARCH 11 - A remix-rap video showing an Egyptian woman protesting against Barack Obama and hailing Field Marshall Abdel Fattah El Sisi, the Commander-in-Chief of the Egyptian Armed Forces marketed as the country's next president, has become an instant online hit.

    The success of the 15-second video - according to Al Arabiya Online - came after the woman's words were remixed and transformed into a rap song with techno music. ''Listen your Obama. We are Egyptian women. You are listen Obama. Shut up your mouse [mouth] Obama. Shut up your mouse Obama. Sisi yes. Sisi yes. Morsi no. Morsi no,'' the woman is heard saying in ungrammatical English. Her words have become the song's refrain, with images of the woman shown in the background. Anti-Americanism rose sharply in Egypt after the ousting of Muslim Brotherhood president Mohamed Morsi due to the widespread conviction that he was supported by the US, which has also been accused of hostility towards the new political direction taken by Field Marshall Sisi.
