The success of Egypts Arab Spring rolled on to yet another triumph as that countrys parliament renounced the possibility that it could ever be an ally of Israel. Instead, Israel was declared Egypts number one enemy. Following this development, President Obama announced the restoration of US military aid to Egypt.
Israel is a very powerful country in that region, Obama explained. If Egypt is to have any chance against them it is imperative that we extend as much military assistance as we can.
The President acknowledged that his decision probably wont go over well with some of Israels more strident advocates in Congress, but urged cooler heads to weigh the global math that argues for improved relations with Israels enemies. There are maybe 15 million Jews in the world, Obama estimated. There are one-and-a-half billion Muslims. Muslims out number Jews by 100 to one. Which side of this see-saw should we be on?
Concern for public safety was another factor cited by the President. The aid placates hostility among a very volatile segment, he warned. On the other hand, there is no need for us to fear potential Jewish suicide bombers. On balance, I think the majority of Americans are well served by this decision.

It isn't "funny."
I was on the 3rd paragraph before I decided it was time to see who the author was. :P
Truth disguised as satire since if it was declared as truth, the P.C. police would be there to shut it down !
