ZOA Says F-16 Warplanes for Morsi Shows Up Obama as ‘Naive’

The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has expressed criticism over the Obama Administration’s “naive endorsement” of the transfer of F-16 fighter jets to Mohammed Morsi’s Egyptian regime and its failure to condemn vile anti-Semitic statements by Morsi.

At a joint ceremony in Cairo to mark the delivery of the warplanes, U.S. Ambassador to Egypt, Anne W. Patterson said, “Today’s ceremony demonstrates the firm belief of the United States that a strong Egypt is in the interest of the U.S., the region, and the world … We look to Egypt to continue to serve as a force for peace, security, and leadership as the Middle East proceeds with its challenging yet essential journey toward democracy … The United States has long recognized Egypt as an indispensible [sic] partner.”

ZOA National Chairman of the Board Dr. Michael Goldblatt said, “The ZOA criticized this arms transfer immediately it was announced – for good reason: there is a new regime in Egypt since last year, backed by the extremist, Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, yet President Obama has chosen to send arms under an agreement concluded in 2010 when the Mubarak regime was in power.

“Who are the likely future targets of this Egyptian weaponry? Iran? Syria? Or is it Israel? The ZOA believes that the answer is obvious.

“It is extraordinary and surreal that, only days after Egypt’s Mohamed Morsi is shown to be a guttersnipe anti-Semite of the worst kind, President Obama would approve the dispatch of weaponry to Cairo. It is no less remarkable that Ambassador Patterson would speak of Egypt’s ‘essential journey towards democracy,’ when it is clear Egypt is becoming a hostile, Islamist dictatorship.”

Goldblatt added, Ambassador Patterson’s speech in Cairo suggests that the Obama Administration has not got a clue about the nature of the Morsi regime, the Muslim Brotherhood or their malign intentions towards Israel and the U.S.. These words will one day come back to bite the Obama.”

  1. The President is not stupid, nor is he naive. He knows what the Muslim Brotherhood stands for and he supports it. It's about time American Jews started understanding that basic concept.

  2. JoAlice Levin says:

    Many (not all) American Jews are still fooled by this wolf in sheep's clothing as evidenced by supporting his presidency a second time. They are not yet convinced that he is steadfastly taking steps to completely undermine the American people and our very foundation…Maybe a little more rope will do it.

  3. OBAMA CONTINUES TO SUCK UP TO THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD WITHOUT EXPLAINING HOW HE DOES THIS IN SPITE OF THE FACT THAT THE MB IS NOW SUCKING UP TO IRAN. OBAMA CONTINUES TO MAKE THE POLITICAL MISTAKES OF HIS PREDECESSORS BY BACKING THE WRONG HORSES. AND YES, IT WILL COME BACK AND BITE HIM IN THE ASS. THE FINAL CHAPTER HAS YET TO BE WRITTEN. ADD OBAMA TO THE LONG LIST OF THOSE TYRANTS AND MANIACS WHO THOUGHT THEY COULD DESTROY ISRAEL AND/OR THE JEWS.

  4. Common sense dictates that the delivery of these planes should be delayed. What is the purpose of giving these weapons?

  5. Sophie Pyle says:

    Sadly, many Liberal Jews have turned from Hashem so much that they now start to support the Palestinian cause. Read their Twitter comments and you'll be shocked and sickened to find they've been brainwashed by the MSM, which treats Zionism as a disease that must be wiped out at all costs. The term "Self-Loathing Jew" has never been more appropriate, nor more scary. obama is the evil infecting this country and the media is spreading the disease.
