The White House is negotiating with Egypt's new radical government to gift them Submarines.
President Barack Obama’s deputies are negotiating a $1 billion aid package with Egypt’s new Islamist government, even as Egypt’s cash-strapped military revealed that it is trying to buy $1 billion worth of German submarines that could threaten Israel’s fast-growing offshore energy projects.
The German government has pointedly declined to deny the incendiary revelation about Egypt’s request to buy the two submarines.
Instead, the German government offered vague support for Israel, which is facing renewed threats from Iran’s nuclear program and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt.
The above quote might sound scary, but this revelation is far worse than even this article makes it sound.
The Obama Administration and their friends in the media have a vested interest in downplaying the high hopes they built up when they first developed the "Arab Spring" fairy tale.
These guys are not just radicals, some of the major players in this coalition are of the same group that assassinated Sadat, bombed the World Trade Center in 1993 and later joined with Al Qaeda. Others in the leadership are from other unsavory groups that fall under the umbrella of the Muslim Brotherhood. But lets focus on the World Trade Center group and how hey diverged from the Brotherhood.
The Muslim Brotherhood began in the 1920s and served as the birthplace or facilitator of nearly all the radical terrorist groups in the Middle East today. They had relations with the Grand Mufti Husseini of Jerusalem that worked with Hitler and founded the Palestinian radical groups that would follow. They had a cooperative relationship with Safavi in Iran in the 1940s who was the mentor of Khomeini. Yes, Shiites and Sunnis working together to spread terror, it happens every day. They served as the birthplace of the underground cells that assassinated Anward Sadat. Splinter groups formed in the aftermath of the post Sadat sweeps meant to disrupt their activity. Ayman Zawahiri, helped form Islamic Jihad in Egypt, which would also spawn other groups.
The Blind Sheik, Omar Abdel-Rahman formed Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya. As the different groups established their territories of interest he went to the US and Zawahiri went to Afghanistan where he would eventually team up with OBL. Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, the 911 mastermind and Al Qaeda operative was financing them and he laid out the master plan of the 1993 World Trade Center bombing for Rahman's men including KSM's nephew, Ramzi Yousef.
Many of these murderous groups develop "political wings" and then they continue to maintain a terrorist militia. Although Rahman is locked up in Supermax, his sons continue to run the organization and about 9 months ago Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya also developed a political group after the so called "Arab Spring" called the "Building and Development Party". Sounds harmless enough. This party joined two other Salafist groups to form the Islamist Bloc. This arrangement is only a matter of months old and already we are selling Subs to these people. The Islamic Bloc won 127 of the total 458 seats in the government. They hold the second most seats to the Muslim Brotherhood's party.
Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya, was not only responsible for WTC 93. They have engaged in numerous other vicious terrorist attacks, including, the 1997 Luxor Massacre which targeted mostly western tourists visiting Hatshepsut’s Temple. 62 were killed with many others wounded with gruesome mutilation including disembowelment with machetes. The resultant nosedive in tourism began a steady decline from which Egypt has never recovered.
These are the people we are giving Submarines to. The Obama administration claims that diplomacy and intelligence will keep WMDs and their accompanying delivery systems out of the hands of Iran and anyone that might desire to use them on the US or our allies, including Israel.
When the current government took power, they announced that they will never recognize Israel's right to exist, which to many signals a renewed desire on the part of Egypt to attack its neighbour.
Some might argue that the current makeup of the Egyptian government will not pose a threat, but we really don't know if the Islamic Bloc will be in power sometime soon, nor do we know just how radical the Brotherhood is regarding its desire to deny Israel's right to exist.
Obama has been wrong before. When he was trying to claim credit for a Berlin Wall type outbreak of freedom in the Mid East, he gave a speech the week of the ousting of Mubarek claiming that the new leadership was like MLK or Ghandi. This was oddly reminiscent of Jimmy Carter's staff, especially Andrew Young claiming the Ayatollah Khomeini would rule like a Saint in Iran. That was just weeks before they attacked the Marines protecting our Embassy and held our nation hostage for 444 days. Well Played, Sir!
I can't imagine why Obama would give Submarines to the same people that murdered Americans in the World Trade Center, other than this strange habit he has of punishing our friends and rewarding our enemies. I have a feeling there will be some argument that the only way to get the Egyptians to abide by the decades old Peace Treaty is to shower them with gifts,...never mind they are gifts that could surface off the shores of Staten Island and launch even nuclear artillery shells in to lower Manhattan, let alone missiles. Yes, I know we have ways of tracking subs, but what kind of a defence is that? We should give Khalid Sheik Mohammed a B1 Bomber because we could always shoot hm down?
It is ironic that Zawahiri, Rahman, Osama Bin Laden, Islamic Jihad, Al Qaeda and the Muslim Brotherhood once shared the goal that their highest priority was to depose despotic tyrants from Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and especially Egypt. Zawahiri was from Egypt, he had been jailed there and wanted revenge. Going after the West was merely a way to punish their biggest allies. putting a somewhat friendly replacement in power would be a bonus. They got that. Then having achieved that goal, its time to gather resources, go after Israel, spread Jihad across the globe, and find a way to more efficiently attack the West. But how could that be possible the Muslim brotherhood's leader might have asked as he travelled to visit Ahmedinijahd last week.
Ahmedinijahd has nukes and Egypt has Submarines to deliver them and Barak Obama is perfectly willing to hand over a Billion Dollars to cover the whole deal.
Why,... he might ask?
Our answer is who knows. His answer is who cares.
If anyone had doubts about how dangerous some of these groups are that are now running Egypt, Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya announced that it was joining Al Qaeda in 2006, they sent Rahman's sons to meet Zawahiri and OBL to celebrate the announcement and we are giving them gifts.
Why fly in to the tallest buildings in Manhattan when you can pull a submarine right up and double park along side it?
UPDATE: I posted the above on Sept. 10 and in light of the Sept. 11 attacks in Libya and Cairo, CNN is reporting that the Al Rahman Brigade is behind the carefully calculated attack on these two embassies. This is an alternative name for Al-Gama'a al-Islamiyya since it joined with Al Qaeda. This puts Obama in the difficult position of denouncing Rahman's terror wing for killing us and at the same time giving them the 21st century weapons that constitute the nightmare scenario we all fear.
