Obama aids Egypt as it tries to buy U-boats
Obama aids Egypt as it tries to buy U-boats

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 threat Israel’s fast-growing offshore energy projects.
The Germans 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.
“There has been no change in the German government’s position towards Israel, in the commitment the German government feels towards Israel’s security,” a spokesman for Germany’s prime minister’s told Der Speigel, a major German newspaper.
State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland did not respond to an inquiry by The Daily Caller.
The submarine purchase will likely be an issue in the U.S. election, because both parties are vying for support from a relatively large concentration of swing-voting Jewish Americans in Florida.
During the Democrats’ convention in Charlotte, for example, several speakers declared that Obama is a strong supporter of Israel’s defense.
“The Democratic platform reflects the president’s unflinching commitment to Israel’s security and future as a Jewish state,” former Rep. David Wexler declared Sept. 4. “To strengthen Israel’s qualitative military advantage, the president has increased security assistance to Israel to record levels — more than any other president,” he claimed.
Those declarations came after party leaders OK’d a platform document that did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Obama reversed the decision, and directed that Jerusalem be cited in the platform document.
Islamist groups, including Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters in the United States, oppose any recognition of Israel and its capital city.
But the brotherhood’s hostility is constrained by its need to revive Egypt’s stalled economy and to feed its population of over 80 million.
The Islamist government recently won promises of aid from Arab countries, and hopes to complete the $1 billion loan-forgiveness deal with Obama’s deputies by the end of the year.
The U-boat controversy began Sept. 31 when Egypt’s leading newspaper, Al-Ahram, reported that the country’s chief naval officer, Osama al-Gindi, said “We have agreed to a deal with Germany to procure two submarines of the latest 209 Class.”
The Type 209 submarines are among the most advanced non-nuclear submarines available. They’re made in Germany, which has a long history of submarine production. In German, submarines are called U-boats.
The Type 209 submarines can stay underwater for lengthy periods, are sufficiently quiet to elude easy detection and can launch attacks without being identified. They can carry 14 torpedoes, mines or missiles that can sink ships or destroy oil rigs.
Israel has already bought six of the U-boats to protect its trade routes from future attack by any of the many Muslim-majority states around the Mediterranean Sea.
Three of the U-boats are in Israel already, where they also are being used to protect Israel’s network of offshore drilling rigs that are developing the nation’s newly discovered underwater reservoirs of oil and gas.

Caroline Glick: “Since taking office, Obama has made clear that he views the US as an imperialist power on the world stage. As a result, the overarching goal of Obama’s foreign policy has been to end US global hegemony.” unquote
The accumulated factual evidence to this end is overwhelming. From the sabotaging of America’s energy supply and production, to massive govt intervention and control of the US private sector economy, to redistributing American tax payer wealth to whomever he sees fit, against the will of the American people- especially to terrorist organizations like the PLA, Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas.
On top of Obama’s dismantling of America’s Military, via slashing the Budget to a fraction what is should be, both in the current budget cuts, and now mandate forced Military budget cuts – “sequestration”, and from both political party hacks in Congress, which drastically reduces much needed hardware equipment- planes, ships, tanks, etc, as well as destroying America’s nuclear arsenal and delivery systems, not to mention the reduction in US Military personnel at an astonishing rate, at a time of intense world dangers that poses another world war threat, especially with Iran on the verge of attaining, possessing nuclear weapons / WMD, in addition to the radical extremist islamic muslims taking control of every other country in the middle east- eg; Egypt, Libya, Syria, etc.. All of [the above] are a threat to [the U.S., which] thus violates and endangers US National Security, not to mention puts into serious danger our closest [Middle East] ally, Israel.
Obama’s direct executive orders / official govt diplomatic policy directives are one of being apologetic, appeasing, and a position of capitulation, directed to all govt agencies has clearly exposed Obama’s intentions, agenda, and goal, which is to ensure America’s impotency around the world.
And the Congress under both Obamacrats and Republicrats- Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, etc, and the GOP establishment RINOs Boehner, McConnell, McCain, etc. do nothing but assist Obama every step of the way.
They must all be thrown out of office before it’s too late.
The Media, The Voters, and the Politicians
I want to believe it's not too late, despite the evidence to the contrary.
But I expect voter and election fraud beyond anything seen before in the U.S..
Perhaps in Kenya, where supporters of Mr. Obama's cousin Raila Odinga
rioted, burned, and killed Christians, forcing the winner of the Presidential
race to create a post of Prime Minister and appoint the loser (Odinga) to it.
But not here, God forbid.
The voter rolls are unavailable for checking in some states, for example,
Virginia and South Carolina. In other states, checking the voter rolls has
uncovered tens of thousands of dead and ineligible voters - 30,000 in
Florida, and over a million in California (see pp. 12-15). The Pew Research
Center estimates that 24 million voter registrations are either flagrantly
invalid or contain serious inaccuracies, e.g., fabricated birthdates in 1900
or 1850. The courts and the AG Eric Holder DOJ suppress culling out
the dead and ineligible voters, along with requiring a photo ID to vote, in
the name of civil rights: making the ballot box accessible to all (even pets,
the dead, illegal aliens, felons on probation, and Mickey Mouse).
We may not be having the vote counted in Spain, literally, geographically,
but why is Barcelona-based SCYTL involved in counting the vote at all?
Is European software somehow more impartial and impervious to corruption
than the Minnesotans who counted the votes in the 2008 Norm Coleman -
Al Franken U.S. Senate race?

Unless we enforce laws against illegal aliens today,
tomorrow WE may wake up as illegals.
The last word: illegal aliens are ILLEGAL!
