January 23, 2013, NEW YORK — The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has criticized President Barack Obama for providing this week four new, state-of-the art F-16 warplanes to the extremist, anti-Semitic Islamist Egyptian regime of Mohamed Morsi. The four F-16s are part of a package of military aid to Egypt encompassing 16 F-16s jets and 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks that was concluded in 2010 with the previous Hosni Mubarak regime. The Obama Administration is providing this aid package despite the change of government in Egypt and the viciously anti-Semitic and anti-Israel rhetoric of President Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood from which he stems...If you still think that Barack Obama is a good friend and ally to the Jewish State and to the Jewish people then you are simply beyond reason.
ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, “It is simply extraordinary and surreal that, only days after Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi is shown to be a guttersnipe anti-Semite of the worst kind who has also hates America, that President Obama would approve the dispatch of state-of-the art weaponry to Cairo.
“Common sense and prudence would have dictated that President Obama withhold all aid to Egypt until and unless Morsi gives a written commitment to observe the peace treaty with Israel; repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood platform and statements opposing peace, human rights and the Egyptian/U.S. alliance; and rescinds his pledge to work for freeing Islamist sheikh Omar-Abdel Rahman, jailed by the U.S. for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed six people.
“These arms may be used to attack Egyptian minorities including Egypt’s Christian Copts, Israel, and U.S. Mideast facilities.
“It is also bitterly ironic that, at a time President Obama seeks to limit domestic gun sales to prevent weapons coming into the hands of violent killers, he approves the dispatch of cutting-edge weaponry to an Egyptian regime which insists that its children must be ‘nursed on hatred’ towards Jews and engage in ‘resistance’ against Israel.
“At a minimum, President Obama should have immediately withheld this arms package to Cairo, which put top-of-the-line American planes and tanks into the hands of a vicious and dangerous regime. That he did not do so should be a wake-up call to those Americans who have accepted his bromides about supporting Israel and having its security at heart.”
Barack Obama supports and arms, with the latest American military hardware, the leader of a regime that calls for the genocide of the Jews and if that doesn't faze you perhaps you should get out of commenting on politics and take up sudoku or mumblety-peg or some other semi-harmless hobby.
