Apart from a very thick accent, this is a great call. A Coptic Christian who lives in the US called into Hannity’s radio show today asking how the American people would feel if America was sending tanks and F-16s to Osama bin Laden – would there be outrage? He asks because he says Osama bin Laden and Mohammed Morsi are exactly the same. And he says the tanks we’re sending to Egypt are being used to oppress Coptic Christians.

He also points out something that I’ve been unaware of in the past, that apparently we are giving Egypt four Fast Missile Craft ships which cost the American people 2 billion dollars. He says 2 are back in Miss. getting repaired and Egyptians are there with them. You can read more about that here.

But the bottom line is that he feels Americans should be outraged, that people in Congress should get angry and explain to the American people what is really going on here.

Listen:

UPDATE: Sadly, this is related. Ugh:

Egypt and the United States held a joint ceremony today in Cairo to mark the delivery of new F-16 aircraft to the Egyptian Air Force, confirming the two nations’ joint commitment to regional security.

“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,” said U.S. Ambassador to Egypt Anne W. Patterson. “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 U.S. delivery of four aircraft is part of a group of 20 F-16s that will arrive in Egypt over the course of the year. To date, the U.S. has delivered 224 F-16 aircraft to Egypt.

“Our thirty-four year security partnership is based upon shared interests and mutual respect,” said Ambassador Patterson. “The United States has long recognized Egypt as an indispensible partner.”

The F-16s are part of the $1.3 billion in the Foreign Military Financing (FMF) program from the U.S. in annual military and security assistance to improve Egypt’s defensive capabilities and support Egypt’s contributions to regional security that counter terrorist threats.

    Thanks for posting this SCOOP!

    Even Stevie Wonder can see that 0bama’s alliances have been and always will be with radical moozlem terrorist.

      Stevie – LOL!

  • Pancake3

    The article says it all: “Cairo and US committment to regional security.” Boy, if this doesn’t tell Israel to go to hell.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Sadly, you’re exactly right. Nice way to treat an “ally”.

    • sjmom

      Yes, but since God protects Israel He will have his say when Obama, Morsi and the rest meet Him someday. Then, the Lord will tell them what they just told Israel.

  • Sober_Thinking

    I am outraged. This is one of the most grossly negligent stunts by the monster-and-chief ever and frankly, I’m mad as hell. Let that sink in… imagine what hell is like and then imagine the anger emanating from there. This is unconscionable and so wrong… and yet this monster (Obama) gets away with it. Just like the “Fiscal Cliff”… the car is heading over the edge and Obama blames others and says, “Bush started it… what can I do about it now? It’s not my fault.” And the damned lapdog media goes right along with it as though it were okay. If Americans… even the weak-kneed, sleepy ones new the full extent of this treason, there would likely be much more uproar. This is insanity. Utter madness… and America keeps right on sleeping. Folks the boogey man is out of the closet… and he is up to no good.

    God will make it all right some day. But until then, you just have to pray and shake your head at their (the liberals’) folly. They are rotten and unAmerican. Man I’m ticked over this…

    • notsofastthere

      Lets keep in mind, all but 3 Senate Republican’s voted to sent this equipment to Egypt

      • Sober_Thinking

        Stoking the fires… :)

        It is unacceptable. And the Republicans ought to know better. Sinfully stupid.

  • TexasPGRRider

    To date, US has delivered 224 F16 aircraft…NUTS !!!!

  • http://no-apologies-round2.blogspot.com/ AmericanborninCanada

    Excellent call. Only thing is, some of us are outraged- but with an out of control marxist/islamic loving brotherhood sympathizing dear leader and traitorous administration along with a cowardly, spineless, power hungry egotistical pos filled Congress- we the people for now have our hands tied.

    Hands tied until more people become outraged that is. How about it people?

  • sjmom

    We are outraged but apparently the GOP is not because how many of them voted to send the planes and tanks to Egypt? And these are the kinds of traitors Rove wants us to elect!

    • aposematic

      79… 79… seventy nine… SEVENTY NINE!!!!!!!!!! Anybody besides us awake yet, I hope so for all of our sake let alone Israel. All of the D’s except Kerry didn’t vote (I think) + 26 R’s

            Researching Abedin family ties w/muslim bhood, Naseef/IMMA and relationship shared w/ B.O. about wahhabist muslims, Morsi and the trail leading to the House of Saud. Time consuming, mind blowing, search for the TRUTH !!!!

  • aposematic

    To counter terrorist threats? Wow, we have either traitors or the dumbest people in the World running our Gov. The Muslim Brotherhood is the Mother of all Islamic terrorist groups.

    • badbadlibs

      It isn’t an “either/or” dilemma, (traitors or dumbest people). It’s both, sadly.

  • StrangernFiction

    R’s and D’s agree, aid the enemy.

    Arms to Egypt, confiscate weapons from law abiding Americans. What is really going on? Has the CONS (Communist Obama News Service) made any comments?

  • 12grace

    Yea, obama is a Christian. NOT!!!!!!!!!!!

  • ryanomaniac

    Improve Egypt’s defensive capabilities? Defend from who? Israel?

    • tinlizzieowner

      That’s the only enemy the Muslim Brotherhood has in the Middle East.

    “The F-16s are part of the $1.3 billion in the Foreign Military Financing (FMF) program from the U.S. in annual military and security assistance to improve Egypt’s defensive capabilities and support Egypt’s contributions to regional security that counter terrorist threats.”

    This is a major problem in American foreign policy today. The Egyptians are given this money by Congress and then the money is used to buy American weapons from American manufacturers. The American weapons manufacturers, therefore, have a big financial interest in making sure deals like this go through, regardless of whether or not the weapons in the deal eventually are used to harm Americans or her allies.

    These deals mean big money for American corporations, not only for the weapons manufacturers, but for the number of other electronic firms that are used as sub-contractors for these deals. It means money and jobs in the states of the Congressmen and women who approve these funds in the first place. Why Congress doesn’t just buy the weapons outright and give them to another nation is really beyond me, but I guess they don’t want to be seen as overtly giving weapons to lowlifes like Morsi in Egypt. Either way, giving weapons to foreign countries means a lot of money and jobs for American corporations, which is why this funding always seems to eventually be approved by Congress. Is it right? Certainly not, but nobody will pay any attention to it until Americans are killed by enemies equipped with American weapons. THEN maybe the American public will notice something.

  • Army_Pilot1967

    The obama administration understands perfectly what Morsi will do with the weapons we’re sending to him and they’re okay with that. I just hope all the people that voted for the Blamer-in-Chief understand it too, and I’m sure they do. obama has no love for Christians or democracy, and he wants to be a part of destroying both wherever he can.

  • Conniption Fitz

    ABSOLUTELY Right on!!!

    Muslim Bro-hood = every other group from Hamas to AlQueda.

    Islam is a hate, terror, human rights violation group…from its core texts to its deceitful, violent and aggressive actions.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002997192223 Deborah Clemence

    THIS WAS TRUE UNDER MUBARAK, BUT THIS IS A NEW GOVERNMENT THAT WE DO NOT HAVE A 34 YEAR RELATIONSHIP WITH, AND IT IS NOT ONLY UNSTABLE, BUT ISLAMIST!!!

    “Our thirty-four year security partnership is based upon shared interests and mutual respect,” said Ambassador Patterson. “The United States has long recognized Egypt as an indispensible partner.”

    • tinlizzieowner

      We have never ever been ‘partners’ with Shia Islam, until the Obama ‘machine’ came along.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1534357187 Robert Stevenson

    The only reason this would make sense is if Obama is the Anti-Christ (or his forerunner), and his 1st mission is in alignment of the Muslim world which states: “First Saturday, then Sunday” A centuries old saying taught to Muslim children, which simply means; Kill the Jews first, then the Christians. Obama has done NOTHING to stop Iran Nukes, and has overthrown a leader that was neutral on Israel and is now arming a man with advanced weaponry who has recently stated: “We must teach hatred toward the Zionists and the Jews to our children”.
    Repent and turn to Jesus, because He is our only Hope and our Salvation!
