US-commanded MFO in Sinai under attack -- dead reported in compound
Caroline Glick ^ | September 14, 2012 | Caroline Glick

Posted on 09/14/2012 3:13:05 PM PDT by combat_boots

Israel media - Channel 2 - just reported that the US-commanded Multi-National Force Observors headquarters in the Sinai is under assault. Salafists laid seige to the building this afternoon and some 50 armed men stormed it. There is fighting going on in the building and there are dead inside. The MFO is the force that was established under the Israel-Egypt peace treaty. It is charged with guaranteeing the demilitarization of the Sinai.

The MFO has two bases. I believe that the one under attack is in northern Sinai, built on an old Israeli Air Force base.

The MFO has come under attack several times since the outset of the US-supported Islamic revolution there. The US approved and forced Israel to accept the deployment of Egyptian tanks in the Sinai some weeks ago as part of a much touted counterterror offensive of the Egyptian military. Its results were inconclusive but at Israel's insistence, the tanks were removed a couple weeks ago. Egyptian President Morsi supports the remilitarization of the Sinai. It is hard not to see the strategic implications of this attack on the MFO.

I suppose the MFO weren’t allowed to carry loaded weapons, either./sarc

This appears, more and more, as an organized and concerted effort by radical Muslims to create a military situation in order to re-elect BHO2. They aren’t stupid and know that Americans do not change Presidents during wartime. But would the Muslim Brotherhood think this up on their own?

Or, were they advised by someone in the White House to do this.

Is this the September/October surprise?

Seems the ‘2012 apocalypse’ has started. Early stages and most don’t even recognize what’s happening as such. 0bama is the Anti-Christ and is fomenting chaos and NOT SPEAKING OR ACTING FERVENTLY AGAINST IT.

Islamofanatics are getting attention. That is giving them encouragement to perpetrate more of these attacks throughout the world.

Unless the Western powers quell these, they will get worse and could develop into regional wars.

Leader-from-Behind is in serious jeopardy, if it is perceived that he is the new Jimmy Carter of Middle Eastern affairs.

Yes. It is telling that Valerie Jarrett had a full security detail during her vacation and the Ambassador to Libya did not.

The continual snubbing of Bibi Netanyahu is sending the Islamists a very strong message. Do what you will, we won't stop you.

Next I suppose we'll hear an apology from Obama for the presence of the MFO in the northern Sinai.

This is going to get much worse as the Muslims are not getting the response they deserve. They are building a head of steam, and getting to the point they think they are unstoppable to the point it will take something spectacular to stop them.

They are on the juice.

Obama’s fault.

You don’t go around and reject God...3 times.

You see....there are consequences to that sort of thing.

Perhaps tonight one should read Joshua 24 in its entirety. 0bama’s snub of Israel, the rejection of God, and then 0bama’s rejecting Israel....

A time of choosing is very much upon us.

15 But if serving the Lord seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord.”

Obama blames the US for everythng he has got to go.
He is not a wartime president unless you count conspiring with the enemy to be a good wartime President.

Obama is a enemy to the State

Obama is not THE Anti Christ by any stretch of the imaginatio

He is very much anti Christ and seems to have a profound distaste for any thing that has to do with the Christian or Jewish faith. His policies consistently seem designed to undermine traditiona Christian values.

From what little I know about the predictions from the Bible regarding the rise of THE Anti Christ , a strong case case could be made no world leader in modern history has done more to set the stage and produce the necessary environment and set of world conditions for his rise to power.

I do not know who the Anti-Christ might be. I pray that I will not be fooled, or tempted whenever he shows up.

The scar on O’s head bothers me a bit, and his actions seem consistent. Only my Lord and Savior knows the time and the person.

Thanks to dead for this reality:

Carter is Obama. Obama is Carter.

Both are Traitor Losers, who hate America!

Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.

A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.

1979

2012


As Clint noted, the Empty Chair improved by codetoad:

It is past time to fire Barack and have him hit the road back to Chicago!

Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focault's Pendulum and for finding these morphing graphic art realities

I know the MSM will be bending over backwards to spin this for the Fraud, but how can this not hurt the Kenyan. He’s President and an US ambassador was murdered and dragged through the streets by a mob. All over the Middle East it’s chaos. The PIAPS is now exposed as the incompetent bitch she has always been, under her stewardship at the SOS the world is exploding.

I see your point, the Muslims are rallying behind another Muslim and creating a war may be an excuse to either not hold the election or not change course. If this unqualified hack leads the Middle East into war, it’s more of a reason to get rid of him, before he ends of getting all of us killed.

There’s no doubt he’s orchestrating this, but how does he benefit unless a war allows him to suspend the election ?

That’s Tin Foil Hat Territory and you and I are the only ones who have their equipment on.

I believe this could easily be an Axelrod September/October Surprise. It seems like a long shot to me but, as they say, desperate times call for desperate measures. Maybe those internal polls that the Obama Team is looking at has created that sense of desperation.

Will the American people rally around the Obama flag?

I don’t think so but stay tuned and watch the (real) polls.

2.5 months to prepare a transition. No excuse to accept such a plea from O and Co.

It is time for President Obama to make another apology for America’s existence tour of the Middle East. Perhaps he can convince them this time that America is not a “threat” and perhaps he can try promising them that he will double his efforts at making the USA a totally defenseless and subserviant nation to Islam.

Naw, he can’t aford the time from campaign fund raisers and rounds at the golf course.

Very true. Pull our people out and let them have at it. It was when we stepped in to try and stop their ages old tribal wars we stepped into the fresh stinking pile of doggie apples to start with. While the islamic nations were killing each other it satisfied their thirst for blood. At the same time Israel has been more than capable of stopping threats in it's own interest which usually was also in our interest they act. A Win/Win for us.
