Obama Gives F-16′s To Egypt After Morsi Calls Jews ‘Apes And Pigs’ [Commentary]
Commentary | Two weeks ago, a video made in 2010 surfaced in which the current President of Egypt referred to Jews as ““Descendants Of Apes And Pigs” and “Bloodsuckers.” On the same tape, he called President Obama a liar, and made a variety of anti-American comments. Instead of putting Morsi on notice that his behavior is a complete and unforgivable violation of every standard of acceptable behavior, especially from the elected leader of a nation of 85 million people, the Obama Administration rewarded Morsi by going ahead with plans the delver 213 million dollars worth of high tech weapons to an avowed racist. Today, four of the promised 20 F-16′s left the United States bound for Egypt.
While some apologists for the Obama Administration are trying to claim Morsi made the comments in anger over Operation Cast lead and other legitimate Israeli action to stop the endless fusillade of missiles being fired on Israeli citizens from Gaza, the President of Egypt left no doubt about his hatred of the Jewish people when he met with a concerned delegation of US Senators last week. During the meeting in Cairo, Morsi made the following stunning comments:
”Well, I think we all know that the media in the United States has made a big deal of this and we know the media of the United States is controlled by certain forces and they don’t view me favorably.”
Senator Chris Coons (D-DE) was a member of the delegation that attended the meeting and he described the reaction of the shocked American officials:
“He did not say [the Jews], but I watched as the other senators physically recoiled, as did I. I thought it was impossible to draw any other conclusion.”
Morsi’s attitude should noit come as a surprise to our elected officials. The Muslim Brotherhood has espoused a policy of open hatred of the Jewish people since the group’s founding in 1928. The destruction of Israel and their war cry of ““From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free” has been shouted by Brotherhood leaders and echoed in Egypt’s mosques for decades.
Let us not forget that the men responsible for the assassination of Anwar Sadat, after he signed a peace treaty with Israel, all had ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. Both al Qaeda and Hamas, two of the world’s leading Islamist terrorist organizations, began as offshoots of the Muslim Brotherhood.
In October of 2012, Mohammed Badie, the Supreme Guide of the Brotherhood declared a jihad to reconquer Jerusalem, the undivided captial of Israel.
“Jerusalem is Islamic … and nobody is entitled to make concessions” on the Holy City. The jihad for the recovery of Jerusalem is a duty for all Muslims, The liberation of the Holy City will not be done through negotiations or at the United Nations.”
Certainly Morsi‘s ties to an organization the has spent the better part of eight decades calling for the murder of Jews and six decades calling for the destruction of Israel should cause great concern for Mr. Obama. But adding to the vile words of Morsi and his friends, we also see his treatment of the Egyptian people.
Recently, Morsi rammed a new Sharia compliment Islamist Constitution down the throats of the starving Egyptian people. The Brotherhood placed groups of enforcers at every polling place in Egypt when the nation voted on the Constitution and Egyptian judges banned unveiled women from voting. Coptic Christians were threatened with murder if they voted against the new Constitution.
Even if all these factors are not enough to make any fair minded person seriously question the sanity of giving twenty highly advanced fourth generation F-16′s and 200 Abrams battle tanks to Egypt, the events of last weekend in Egypt should have been the final straw. Egyptians took to the streets across the country to protest the oppressive polices of Morsi; the man they are calling “the new Pharaoh.” Morsi responded by calling out the army to suppress the demonstrations, resulting in the death of more than 50 protesters and hundreds of serious injuries.
Egypt is in chaos, people are dying in the streets at the hands of the military, and yet, the Obama Administration is not even willing to wait and see how things progress before they deliver world class fighter jets to a nation led by a man who called his closest neighbors “apes and pigs.”
Here in America, Obama has simply decided to ignore the demands for a halt to the arms trade. Recently, Senator Inhofe asked the President to put a hold on the delivery of weapons until Morsi proves he is living up to his promises to install a Democratic government for the Egyptian people
“President Morsi has failed to promote promised democracy in his country and neglected to continue Egypt’s legacy of maintaining peace in the region. I am alarmed and disappointed in the Obama Administration’s decision to decline my request to delay delivery of F-16s for further consideration.”
Obama and Hilary Clinton at the State Department are determined to arm the Islamists of Egypt at all costs. They have consistently failed to mention that the weapons were promised to Mubarak, and not Morsi, which gives Mr. Obama a legitimate reason to put a hold on weapons deliveries. Instead, they plunge ahead, arming Morsi while Egypt erupts in chaos.
Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairs, David Adams, spoke on behalf of the State Department:
“Delaying or cancelling deliveries of the F-16 aircraft would undermine our efforts to address our regional security interests through a more capable Egyptian military and send a damaging and lasting signal to Egypt’s civilian and military leadership as we work toward a democratic transition in the key Middle Eastern State.”
“Egypt is a strategic partner with whom we have a long history of close political-military relations that have benefited U.S. interest. For the past 30 years the F-16 aircraft has been a key component of the relationship between the United States military and the Egyptian Armed Forces.”
Americans may be shocked to learn that despite all the talk about Israel being our number one ally in the Middle East, the delivery of 200 Abrams tanks and 20 more F-16′s to Egypt will give the Egyptians more American made advanced fighters than Israel. If Obama truly wants peace in the Middle East, why is he sending more jets and tanks to Egypt, plus 48 billion dollars worth of weapons to ultra Islamist Saudi Arabia; home of 15 of the 19 terrorists who destroyed the World Trade Center on 9/11.
Israel has been attacked by Egypt and other Arab nations five times since 1948. The Jewish State has been struck by more than 12,000 rockets in the last decade, deliberately fired on civilian population centers. Jewish infants have been decapitated in their cradles by Palestinian terrorists and the Israeli Olympic team was slaughtered by the PLO at the Munich Olympics. That attack was funded by Abu Mazin, now known as Mahmoud Abbas, the President of the Palestinian Nation Authority and Israel’s so-called partner for peace.
It is truly mind boggling that we have arrived at this state of affairs. Obama is sending hundreds of millions of dollars of deadly weapons to an avowed racist who is killing his own people. Israel is pressured by the US and Europe to negotiate with Abbas, who showed no shame when he published a doctoral dissertation denying the Holocaust, financed the murder of Jews at the Olympics, and just last week, accused the Jews having ties to the Nazis prior to World War Two.
“I challenge anyone to deny the relationship between Zionism and Nazism before World War II.”
Have the leaders of the free world simply lost their minds or are they willing to sacrifice the nation of Israel and the Jewish people to keep the oil following? Obama is happy to arm a sworn enemy of Israel and continues to demand that Prime Minister Netanyahu surrender part of Israel to a Holocaust denying former terrorist.
Is Mr. Obama’s ego so fragile that he refuses to admit he was wrong about Morsi? Sending advanced weaponry to Egypt is madness and the day may come when American made jets are used to rain down bombs on Tel Aviv. The world needs to wake up and understand that the Arab world will never accept Israel in their midst. The goal has always been to destroy Israel and finish the genocide that Hitler started. Read the speeches of the leaders of the Muslim world and learn the truth about the undying hatred for the Jewish people and Israel.
We have decided to give the final word on this matter to President Morsi of Egypt:
“One American president after another—and most recently, that Obama—talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine… He uttered many lies…”
“Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews.”
