Under a foreign aid agreement signed in 2010 by "Dear Leader" Barack Hussein Obama with then Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, sixteen F-16s and 200 state-of-the-art M-1 Abrams tanks are to be given to Egypt before the end of 2013. But now new Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, elected in the summer of 2012, is in charge of Egypt. But did that little detail stop Obama? To quote John Belushi from SNL, "Nooooooooooooooooooo."
Egyptians interpret the weapons gift as a show of support for Morsi by Obama. Retired Egyptian Brigadier General Safwat Al-Zayat said:
"It is obvious that the finalisation of the deal on 11 December, which happened to be at the height of the mass demonstrations in Tahrir Square against Morsi, conveyed a political message. Between the lines, Washington was sending a message to three parties. The first was to Morsi and it stated, 'We support you. Move ahead.' The second was to the army and it said, 'We are encouraging this man,' meaning Morsi. The third was to the opposition forces and it said the same thing."
Mohammed Morsi, a leader of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010, in reaction to Obama's 2009 Cairo speech, said on Egyptian television:
"One American president after another, and most recently, that Obama, talks about American guarantees for the safety of the Zionists in Palestine.
[Obama] was very clear when he uttered his empty words on the land of Egypt. He uttered many lies, of which he couldn't have fulfilled a single word, even if he were sincere - which he is not."
Dear brothers, we must not forget to nurse our children and grandchildren on hatred towards those Zionists and Jews, and all those who support them. They must be nursed on hatred. The hatred must continue.
In a previous speech, Morsi called for hatred of Jews, and called Zionists "'bloodsuckers' and descendants of apes and pigs." Morsi said:
"The Zionists have no right to the land of Palestine. There is no place for them on the land of Palestine. What they took before 1947-8 constitutes plunder, and what they are doing now is a continuation of this plundering. By no means do we recognize their Green Line. The land of Palestine belongs to the Palestinians, not to the Zionists.
These futile [Israeli-Palestinian] negotiations are a waste of time and opportunities."
Morsi, in the same speech, called for "military resistance" against Israel. What does Morsi mean by military resistance? He makes his intentions quite clear at the 1:28 mark and 2:30 mark of this video. And, Morsi mouthed the word "Amen" after a prayer service in Cairo, when an Islamic cleric urged Allah to "destroy the Jews and their supporters."
