We are giving a gift of aircraft and tanks to Dictator Mohammad Morsi of Egypt. That’s the same Morsi who hates us and Israel. The same Morsi who has transformed Egypt into a Sharia’h-compliant country by force.
He is paying for the equipment with money we sent him.
F-16’s were flown to Egypt today. Thanks to the US, Egypt has the most formidable army in the region and the 4th largest Air Force.
We’re also sending 200 tanks as if the aircraft wasn’t enough.
What is the upside of this?
Why couldn’t we send them food and clothing or business people to provide them with the acumen to develop a free enterprise system? Why equip their military?
We are told that we need to keep their military on our side but Morsi has already replaced the military leaders with his Brotherhood thugs.
Morsi is no friend to the US or Israel.
Morsi said on September 21st of this past year that amending his country’s peace treaty with Israel [1979 peace accords] is just “a matter of time.” He wants Egypt in full control of the Sinai Peninsula. Morsi added that the 1979 accord “preserves Israel‘s national security more than Egypt’s, which constitutes a blatant violation of Egyptian sovereignty,” and that it would not endure under Egypt’s new leaders.
In November of this year, the head of the Brotherhood, Mohammed Badie, blasted Israel as “the project of the devil” during a speech at an Islamic conference in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum.
When Israel finally defended themselves last year after having 8000 missiles lobbed into Southern Israel from Gaza, Morsi repeatedly warned Israel that “the price will be high” if Israel “continues the aggression.” He said that Egypt will “stop the brutal aggression” against Gaza. “If I see the homeland in danger, I won’t hesitate to take unusual steps.”
Morsi has sided with Hamas and threatened to join forces with them.
Despite all this, he was credited with the latest peace between Israel and Gaza by our administration. The truth is that Morsi was in actually in Gaza to show his support for Gaza, not to win a peace of any kind.
One mustn’t forget the Morsi diatribe in which he called Israeli’s descendants of apes and pigs.
Mayor Giuliani is not impressed with our decision to equip Morsi’s military:
