M-1A1 Abrams To Be Sold To The Muslim Brotherhood

Hat Tip to Israel Matzav

On Friday President Barack Hussein Obama informed the US Congress that he intended to sell 125 M-1A1 Abrams Tanks to the Egyptian Military.

With the nation of Egypt in turmoil, and the fact that the Muslim Brotherhood is poised to assume total control over Egypt, why would any sane and rational person sell tanks (or any weapon) to a nation bent on not only destroying its neighbor, but who would turn the same weapons on the US to destroy it.

From the Jerusalem Post:

The US signaled last week that it plans to continue business as usual when it comes to arms sales to the Egyptian military, despite the recent revolution in Egypt and continued anti-government demonstrations there.

On Friday, the Defense Security Cooperation Agency notified Congress of a possible sale of 125 M1A1 Abrams tank to Egypt – the first large arms deal since Hosni Mubarak was ousted from power in February – including associated weapons, equipment, parts, training and logistical support at an estimated cost of just over $1.3 billion.

If approved, the deal would increase the number of Abrams tanks in Egypt from around 1,000 to 1,130.

According to the notification to Congress, Egypt would receive 125 tanks, parts of which would be produced in Egypt, as well as M256 Armament Systems, M2 .50 caliber machine guns, 7.62mm machine guns, spare parts, maintenance, support equipment, personnel training and other related elements of logistics and program support.

The Pentagon told Congress – which has 30 days to object to the deal – that the sale of the tanks would “contribute to the foreign policy and national security of the United States by helping to improve the security of a friendly country that has been and continues to be an important force for political stability and economic progress in the Middle East.”

The sale would “provide Egypt with a modern tank fleet, enhancing its capability to meet current and future threats,” the Pentagon further stated.

News of the deal raised eyebrows in Israel, which has carefully watched arms sales to Egypt ever since Cairo began to receive annual military aid of some $1.3b. from the United States following the peace treaty the two neighbors signed in 1979.

Israel has in the past lobbied Congress against specific arms deals to Egypt. In the past few years, Egypt has purchased 24 F-16 fighter jets, Hellfire missiles, Harpoon antiship missiles, TOW anti-tank missiles, Chinook transport helicopters and Apache attack helicopters.

Israel is concerned that Egypt might take a radical shift in elections expected to be held in the fall and might once again turn into an enemy state, depending on the identity of the new president and the number of seats the Muslim Brotherhood wins in parliament.

The IDF has taken a cautious approach to the developments in Egypt, with Chief of General Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz choosing a long-term plan formulated by the Planning Directorate, under which the army would grow over a number of years and not launch an immediate procurement plan to counter the possible threat evolving in the South.

Gantz’s thinking is based on the assumption that any war with Egypt would not take place any time soon, and that an immediate procurement plan announced by the IDF could be detrimental and increase tension between the countries.

The signs point to Egypt attacking Israel within the next 6 months (sooner if they can). The addition of more M-1A1 Abrams tanks will only increase the livelihood of this happening.

Contact your Congressman and let them know that you do not support this idea and demand that they vote against this deal.

  • Findalis, thanks for posting this here. I had not seen this appalling story. Unfortunately, Obama is all too sane. I think this is called a “plan.”

  • Quite clearly, Obama is an enemy of Israel and the West. There is no other ‘sane or rational’ explanation.

    • USA 1st

      No Sayan, who ever is an enemy of the synagogue of satan is a friend to the west. Problem is most of these subversive treasonous SOBs have now infiltrated themselves into power all over the west. That is soon to be our downfall.

      PS: When OBL or the Muslim Bros f#$$ our country’s banks and economy into the ground like the jewish weazels? Then worry about the “muslim terrorists”.

Oh, by the way these virgins are all members of the House of Saud’s harem. Yeah, sisters of the Muslim brotherhood. ha ha he he Captain C-weed Over and out. Hope you Muslim Brothers like glowing Red then Blue in the desert sands for 5,000 years. ? Like them apples, you suckers. ???

        Yeah. as usual Richard is behaving like an ostrich with his head up his donkey-hole.

    • Man.. you do see the trees in the forest don’t you.. or are you deaf, blind and dumb.. Richard, seriously.. don’t vote in 2012.. please stay home and just cover your head with a pillow to block out the light and the world.. or, at least educate yourself a bit before you venture to the polls.

    • Paul

      Richard… No,no,no. ” Your enemies enemy is not neccessarily your friend “, in this case this is more than a correct statement.

    • hERBERT FRANK ZIMMERMAN-ROTH-EWERT

      imbicile. do you know how and where the Rothschilds got their name?

  • I’m without words.. Just.. can’t say what I’m thinking in public.

    • USA 1st

      Because you’re another dual national traitor yourself. Get out of USA and dont take our $$$ with you.

  • hERBERT FRANK ZIMMERMAN-ROTH-EWERT

    listen M-brother-hoodlem. because you are what you are, i can still like you; but hate the hell of you for your sinful soul which shall rot in hell till it freezes over. Over and out u sucker. u sucker of cock-a-doodle do’s

  • Funny how this has brought out the anti-Semites. I wonder if they hate Jews because Jews are smarter than they will ever be or because they are so insecure that by hating Jews they will seem to have bigger egos.

    Either way shows that they are small, insignificant people. Their opinions not worthy to be viewed.
