US Gives 4 More F-16 Fighter Jets To Egyptian Gov't Despite Outcry
Fox ^ | 4/11/13 | Maxim Lott

Posted on 04/11/2013 4:13:31 PM PDT by Nachum

Four more F-16 fighter jets left the U.S. on Thursday headed for Egypt as part of a foreign aid package that has generated controversy given the political upheaval in the Mideast country.

Critics say the military aid should stop because the president Egyptians elected last year has led the Muslim Brotherhood, called President Obama liar and urged that hatred of Jews be instilled in children.

A source who works on the naval air base in Fort Worth, Texas, confirmed to FoxNews.com the departure of the state-of-the-art fighter planes. The new shipment brings the total number of F-16 jets given to Egypt this year to 12.

Eight more F-16s will be given to the Egyptian government before the end of the year as part of a billion-dollar foreign aid deal signed in 2010 with then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, a longtime U.S. ally. The U.S. also will send 200 Abrams tanks.

Critics, including several in Congress, say it doesn't make sense to follow through with the package. While current Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi has toned down his rhetoric since his election last summer, in 2010 Morsi attacked Obama for supporting Israel.

What could go wrong? Obama's generosity knows no bounds when he is giving away other people's property - especially when he is giving to those who hate America and oppose freedom.

Wonder how Netanyahu feels about all of this?

We are clearly no longer any friend of the israeli people, and are providing their enemies with the means to destroy them., no matter what the lying communist in the oval office has to say.

I imagine Netanyahu knows that most Americans support Israel. It’s just the communist in our White House and the antisemitic left who want Israel annihilated. I suspect Netanyahu trusts Obama as much as is appropriate, as much as Caesar should have trusted Brutus, Mufasa should have trusted Scar, or the Apostles should have trusted Judas. Personally, I trust Obama as much as I trust Jane Fonda, Robert Hanssen, and Aldrich Ames.

Our Representatives passed a law which gives this power to the President. They only way they can stop it is to pass a law, which he would have to sign.

Satan's arming his troops and Obama’s his lackey.

We are on a collision course with that scripture.

Thanks Nachum.
While current Egyptian President Mohammad Morsi has toned down his rhetoric since his election last summer, in 2010 Morsi attacked Obama for supporting Israel.
And that's why Zero's sending the planes.

Good idea. F-16s can be used for things like Savage Islamic Attack on St. Mark Cathedral Allowed by Egyptian Forces

"What a novel idea; Arm the Muslim Brotherhood with the latest tech and see who they might attack watch the Israeli Air Force shoot them out of the sky or destroy them in before they get off the ground."

This would be a deal if they were going to pay for the jets. They aren't.

This was a gift from one muzzie POS to a country full of muzzie POS's.
