Obama Arming Anti-Jewish Egyptian Islamists

U.S. gift of F-16 fighters headed to Egypt, despite Morsi's harsh rhetoric

Four F-16 fighter jets left the U.S. this morning, bound for Egypt as part of a foreign aid package critics say should have been scrapped when the nation elected a president who has called President Obama a liar and urged that hatred of Jews be instilled in children. 
A source who works on the Naval Air Force Base in Dallas confirmed the departure of the state-of-the-art fighter planes to Sixteen F-16s and 200 Abrams tanks are to be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year under a foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a longtime U.S. ally.
I wonder what it will take for Obama's Jewish supporters to finally yank their heads from the sand and realize just how bad this president is for the Jewish State of Israel and, thus, for the Jewish people more generally?

When Obama helped install the Muslim Brotherhood into power in Egypt it's possible that he was ignorant of the nature of the organization, believing it to be moderate and peaceful.  Of course, if Obama did think so it would reveal a level of ignorance so complete as to be entirely irresponsible for any high government official.  Given the history of the Brotherhood, both recent and otherwise, it is hard to imagine that Obama thought the organization was moderate, but that doesn't mean it was not what he believed.  And it is only if Obama did think the organization moderate that we can possibly justify his helping them into power and arming them to the teeth.

Obama no longer has any such excuse.  We have Morsi on video frothing at the mouth and encouraging the education of Egyptian children into genocidal Jew hatred.  This can only mean that Obama must know that Morsi and the Brotherhood are anything but moderate and if he were to do a little reading he would learn that one of the primary ideological forebears of the Brotherhood is Nazi Germany.

Yet he still insists on sending them state-of-the-art American made weaponry.

At this point it becomes tempting to conclude that Obama's Jewish supporters simply do not care about the well-being of the Jewish State of Israel.  If even after this one continues to support this president it becomes very difficult to see how one can also be considered a supporter of the State of Israel.  One cannot be a supporter of Israel if one also supports a president that helps a genocidally fascist organization like the Brotherhood into power and arms that government despite the most brutal and hate-filled anti-Semitism spraying from the lips of its leader.

I can only conclude that it doesn't matter what Obama says or does, his Jewish supporters will support him no matter what.  If Obama were to urinate on an Israeli flag while crying out "Alahu Akbar!" and throttling Tzipi Livni on national television they would still support him.  If Barack Obama were to fly to Israel for the purpose of throwing stones at Israeli soldiers, like Edward Said did, they would explain that this is "tough love."  If Obama were to sing Hava Nagila in backwards Latin on America's Next Top Model while clubbing baby seals to death they would still write their checks.

There has got to come a point when reality intrudes into the consciousness of even the most ideologically blinkered so that they can acknowledge that reality, adjust their thinking accordingly, and move on.

We're still waiting.


  1. And what enemy does the Egyptian regime have that Obama feels the need to send them all those arms?

    1. Good point.

      I have to say, it just boggles my mind that these well-meaning liberal Jewish weenies can look at something that is so obviously wrong, and so obviously to the detriment of Israel, and not even blink.

      As a group they claim to care about Israel, yet they cannot bring themselves to stand up to political Islam nor even to anti-Semitic anti-Zionism within their own political movement in anything but the most limited of ways.

  2. If Obama were to sing Hava Nagila in backwards Latin on America's Next Top Model while clubbing baby seals to death they would still write their checks.

  3. If Obama danced Swan Lake in Nazi regalia for the San Francisco Ballet with the corpse of Eva Von Braun they'd still vote for the guy.
