Sometime in late January, as part of a 213 million dollar foreign aid package, the U.S. government intends to deliver 10 F-16 fighter jets and 200 Abrams tanks to Egypt. Quite a nice gesture on the part of the United States considering back in 2010, Mohamed Morsi, the current President of Egypt went on record labeling the U.S. an enemy and called for driving Israel from occupied Arab lands. Sounds like the kind of man I would allow to possess world class U.S. made weaponry.
Almost daily, the U.S. media is entertaining some Obama State Department mouthpiece attempting to publicly re-affirm U.S. commitment to our ally Israel; and insure the American public that our government has the terrorists on the run. I’m sure Israel is just thrilled to know that the new Muslim Brotherhood sponsored Egyptian government will now be rolling a new shipment of American military hardware to the Israeli border and threatening Israeli airspace with Lockheed Martin Fighting Falcons. I wonder how this is going to play with Israeli plans to address the growing Iranian nuclear threat.
In the past, President Morsi has made no secret of his fondness for Islamist ideology and his anti-Semitic vitriol is well documented. Morsi has been known to label Israel as “bloodsuckers,” “warmongers,” and “descendants of apes and pigs.” Morsi, a former member of the Guidance Office of the Muslim Brotherhood has also condemned— what he considers— the Israeli occupation of Palestinian land while calling for severing ties with this “criminal entity, which is supported by America and its weapons.” According to Morsi all the land we recognize as Israel belongs to the Palestinian people. And the U.S. government is going to give this guy weapons?
In all fairness, the arms/foreign aid deal I previously mentioned, was made during the Mubarak Presidency. You remember Hosni Mubarak, the former Egyptian President who used to keep the peace with Israel? A man that was as much an ally of America as any Arab nation could be, but was deposed during the so-called Arab Spring romantically supported by President Obama?
