Calls decision to give Muslim Brotherhood F-16s as 'unwise'
Congressman Ted Poe, R-Texas, says it is irresponsible for Barack Obama to be arming a country that may be aiming for the destruction of Israel with a shipment of 20 F-16 fighter jets.
It is reckless and unwise for the U.S. to give F-16s to Egypt and its new president/dictator, controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood, he told WND. This extremist group is notoriously anti-American and anti-Israel. The United States should not be arming a country ruled by a group that has the destruction of Israel in its charter.
Poes comments fall in line with other critics of the move, confirmed recently by federal officials.
Florida Rep. Vern Buchanan said, American tax dollars must not be used to aid and abet any dictatorial regime that stands with terrorists, and Rep. Mac Thornberry, R-Texas, said, We should also be cautious about the arms we provide.
Obama is proceeding with his plan to gift Egypt with 20 brand new F-16 fighter jets as part of a $450 million aid package promised to Egypt in 2010 when it was led by the U.S.-friendly Hosni Mubarak regime.
Now Egypt is governed by the openly hostile Muslim Brotherhood, which has called for the destruction of America and Israel. The new President Mohammed Morsi, head of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, recently joined in a public prayer to the effect of Oh Allah, destroy the Jews and their supporters. Oh Allah, disperse them, rend them asunder.
Poe, a member of the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime, Terrorism and Homeland Security, wasnt pleased. Nor was Gen. Jim Cash, the former director of NORAD, who believes Obamas actions just plain wrong.

“Unwise”? How about “an act of treason, committed for the purpose of undermining America’s foreign policy by posing a threat to Israel”?
“Arming the extremists is not really arming etremists.. They are our brethren in our fight” . I can see those as the thoughts of Barack Hussein Bin Ghazi, Obama...

Then take two aspirin and call me in the morning!
It connects the dots, crosses the ts and dots the is. The only thing it does not touch on is Obama and his muslim roots and sympathies. Between the two, we have a casty cocktail of marxist-muslim whos singular goal is to take down America. Actually , its a double header. Take down America and you take down western man. In the meanwhile he has his proxy the MB lining up in rank and file to go whack Israel.
Whatever happens to Israel, happens to us and europe. Not necessarily in that order.
So we can arm terrorists and mexican drug runners, but not teachers to protect our students?
Picture the two ‘o’s as bath houses’ symbol in the next sentence.
So if these Congressmen oppose it then don’t just flap yer lips - BLOCK IT! In case you boys didn’t realize it, all Pentagon funding starts in the House. Simply strip these fighters out of the defense authorization bill and make a huge national issue out of it.
I’m watching it now.
I’ll be sharing it!
Treason has been a recurring hallmark of this government.
I am a conservative, thus by their definition an extremist. I could demand that I be armed since the right to bear arms is in the Constitution unlike the pretend constitutional right to have free abortions. Give me free guns.
It won't be long before US military is in the cockpits of those and other aircraft under the command of Muslim Brotherhood UN officers.
The muzzy in chief is following his islamic duty and no one in our government has stopped him.
You are so correct. Why do the Reps. take it without an argument? They are all playing ball with each other.
An enemy of the U.S. or Israel is an ally of OBeelzebub.
Are you even paying attention?
What would a Muslim terrorist do if he were made President?
Overthrow a Libyan government to arm terrorists? (Benghazi ring any bells?)
Arm the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt with US Fighter jets AND SUBMARINES, obviously to attack Israel.
Arm Syrian rebels (rebels = Al Qaeda or haven't you noticed?)
Create a mess in our military, Afghaistan is about killing and demoralizing US troops just like it did to Russia
Obamacare is about financial hardship and destroying the economy
Obama is doing everything he can to empower radical leftists to destroy America
Or do you still think he's a liberal in over his head? The media told you he isn't a Muslim, do you believe them? etc.
