Obama’s jihad: OK’s attack helicopters to Egypt, blocks to Israel

Couple this with Obama’s supplemental request for tens of billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars for Muslim countries yet zero dollars for Israel, and his request for a new law to allow U.S. funds directly to a Hamas government (currently not legal), and you start to see a definite trend.

Obama okays Longbow helicopters for Egypt
The administration of President Barack Obama has notified Congress that Egypt would receive the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter in an $820 million deal. Congress, notified on the eve of Obama’s visit to Cairo and the Middle East, has 30 days to block the Egyptian request for the Longbow.

“Egypt will use the AH-64D for its national security and protecting its borders,” the Defense Security Cooperation Agency said. “The aircraft will provide the Egyptian military more advanced targeting and engagement capabilities. The proposed sale will provide for the defense of vital installations and will provide close air support for the military ground forces. Egypt will have no difficulty absorbing these helicopters into its armed forces.”

Officials said the Longbow would be the first of several U.S. military sales to Egypt in 2009. They said Egypt has also requested 24 F-16 Block 52+ multi-role fighters from Lockheed Martin.

Obama blocks Longbow helicopters for Israel
The Obama administration has blocked Israel’s request for advanced U.S.-origin attack helicopters.

Government sources said the administration has held up Israel’s request for the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter. The sources said the request was undergoing an interagency review to determine whether additional Longbow helicopters would threaten Palestinian civilians in the Gaza Strip.

Israel’s Defense Ministry and air force have discussed procurement of additional Longbows with the U.S. firm Boeing. But the sources said the Longbow as well as other defense requests have been shelved by the administration amid its review of the potential use of American weapons platforms by Israel.
