Obama Administration Sends Shipload Of Arms to Anti-Israel Anti-American Egyptian Regime

The US government is sending an arms shipment to Egypt – a former US ally that just elected an anti-American Islamic regime into power.
The Arab Times reported, via Lucianne:

Amnesty International has called on the United States to clarify the final destination of an arms shipment it said was headed to Egypt, in a statement late on Thursday.

The London-based rights group had earlier said the shipment may be abused by Egyptian security forces, which had fired at protesters in deadly protests in recent months.

But the US Navy said the shipment would not be offloaded in Egypt without clarifying its final destination, the London-based organisation said in a subsequent statement.

Amnesty says the Dutch-flagged vessel, MV Schippersgracht, which left the US Military Ocean Terminal Sunny Point (MOTSU), is “carrying a class of dangerous goods that covers cartridges for weapons, fuses and other ammunition” and is headed to Egypt’s Port Said.
Port Said is situated on the northern tip of the Suez Canal, which leads to the Red Sea and several countries that receive weapons from the United States.

“Amnesty International is urging US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to clarify who is the final recipient of the latest cargo,” the statement said.

It also demanded assurances that arms shipments would not be sent to countries that might use them to commit human rights violations.

    Clinton “Relax, guys. It’s all going to AmasHay. Now Ixnay on the UllhornBay, OK?”

    Amnesty Int’l: “Oh…right. Sorry. Who should we say is getting them?”

    Clinton: I don’t care… Switzerland, whatever. You clowns need to stop sleeping through the meetings and STFU if you’re not sure next time, OK?.”

    Uh, where is the media on this one?
    Isn’t Amnesty Internatiion a group that the mediaa in this country would cover?
    Jugears had better right his ship fast. People do not trust him and are watching him. There is no way he wins the election fairly in his current full steam ahead approach. Isreal is precarious and no can afford gas. Not a winning statergy even if that’s where his heart lies.

    They are letting this out quitely so WE know. They want a reaction.
    Don’t believe the polls-heavily skewed for the corrupt administration- and they still poll at 41%.
    His internals are bad and I think they are going to go for it shortly
    A lot of people are starting to wake up and question these cretins for who and what they are, and King Putt doesn’t like it

  • Patty

    Another disaster in the works. Another hair brained idea without any organization and relying on who, those who are the enemies.

    Terrorist, Al Qaeda, Brotherhood, those who want to take over and kill innocent people aren’t going to get their hands on these weapons? What assurance and who is going to mind the store, so to speak.

    We need real leadership, we need a strong person who doesn’t party, fund raise, campaign.

  • 1RedBeard

    Why is Barry the Magnificent doing this? Only one reason possible. He supports the Muslim Brotherhood scum that have taken over Egypt.

    Israel is probably very sorry it returned the Sinai to Egypt after the 1967 war. Maybe the next time Egypt starts a war and Israel pounds the crap out of them, Israel will keep the Sinai. With justification, I might add. “Land for peace” is just a sick joke.

  • Chippy

    It’s “Critical Race Theory” again and again and again. Egypt deserves to receive guns from the white-man domination of the United States. It’s payback “whitey” time for all our past perceived injustices. Obama wants not only to “fix” the United States, but the world using our evil tax dollars.

  • bigL

    B-B-but we elected all these gung ho conservatives in 2010, we won! We Won. Where are they? Where is any congresser On aiding tand arms for hese folks. Ususally it is brought out in a hearin what is oin on. Now crickets!

    These Arab spring armed forces are going to be the shock troops if the Us goes to civil war. There won’t be Us forces shooting at Americans , it will be these various countries soldiers brought in to “train”.
    Id sure like to know many of these countries’ troops are here training now and when they leave.
    I am very concerned that Peolsi and Hi meet with these guys. Also Syria becomes a template not a civil war only.

  • No one can convince me that Obama is a Muslim, there is no other logical explanation for his constantly siding with Islamic Fundamentalist.

    Just a thought. I do remember the entire Marxist/Left daily attacking Bush with his wars. And we had the LEFT anti-war protests yearly and internationally.

    Now we see nothing of the anti-war crowd.

    I do believe that the Godless LEFT have no problem starting wars and killing people, but if there is gonna be any killing it will be done by their guy!

  • Obamas regulation destroy jobs

    Christians worship GOD not allah…we would NEVER put a blanket over Jesus and the cross NEVER during a speech!

    We would never condem American Soldiers in war time..never! And SAY nothing when a radical killed 13 soldiers gunned them down…he did NOTHING! Holder is he hatchet man he has many of them..these people are takers! Not givers!

We could be setting up refineries now and with Canada! He is now going after our water and farmers!!

    So would lawyers be considered the more educated and reasonable members of society? They certainly like to think themselves so.

    In Egypt the Arab Spring continues to bloom.

    Via Instapundit:

    300 Muslim Lawyers Storm Egyptian Court, Prevent Lawyers for Christian From Entering

    “He had a quarrel with a Salafi school colleague and then 11 days later, it was suddenly decided by Muslims that they will report the case. He was detained by the prosecution for 4 days and two days later in a 10-minute session and without any defense lawyer present, he was sentenced to 6 years, which is way above the maximum of a misdemeanor case.”

    Eyewitnesses reported that the Muslim lawyers were armed with clubs. A police captain, b two EIPR lawyer, and two reporters from Ros-el-Youssef and El-Bashayer Egyptian newspapers were injured in the milieu.

    “They said no Muslim will defend a Christian. It was agreed that Christian lawyers would take over and two Coptic lawyers volunteered, but the Muslims decided later that even Christians would not defend him.” Sarwat said the Muslim lawyers wanted to assault the chief judge but he managed to leave the court via a rear door.

    No shipment to countries that use them for human rights violations, but life is not a human right for Jews so muslims are free to do their koranic duty and use the weapons to kill Jews. The grand mufti has spoken on arab TV.

  • bobdog

    Anybody in the Obama administration ever once ask what would happen if we didn’t send military weapons to Egypt?

    What, they’re afraid the Muslim Brotherhood won’t LIKE us any more?

  • Is Amnesty International so eat up with themselves that they can’t say the words “KILL PEOPLE?” Why is anyone surprised at what Obama is doing sending weapons to the Egyptians, when he sent 2,000 automatic weapons to the drug lords in Mexcio? And what about that section of Arizona that is under control of the dope dealers so they can pump dope into this country without having to bother with the border causing a slowdown? Why hasn’t Obama announced thatk, “Today I’ve sent the 82nd Airborne Division down to Arizona to rid us of these dope dealers. I’m putting Mexico on notice right now that America will not tolerate anything like this happening again. No one takes over any part of our country for criminal activity, especially when it’s coming from a neighboring nation we’re sending millions of dollars a year in economic aid. If you let this happen again, we’ll invade your country in pursuit of these criminals and kill them. And you won’t do a damn thing about it!”

    Obama should be telling the Egyptians that America doesn’t send weapons to radical Islamists who are being supported by the Muslim Brotherhood! And what do we get from this closet Muslim who favors the plight of the PLO more than he does a free, democratic, country that has been our allie for decades, and has gotten money, military equipment, training, and our own military in support in order to back up any decision they make. Then Obama was told to back up the Egyptian’s who wanted Egypt to be a democratic nation rather than being run by the Mulahs and the Muslim Brotherhood who everyone knows is a terrorist organization.

    Obama wants to back the Mulah’s up rather than telling Israel we’ve got planes at the ready if and when they decide to attack Iran because it’s in our best interest to do that? But sending bullets and explosives to the Muslim Brotherhood is not in our best interest. All that is going to do is *iss off more terrorists who see this as Obama giving this other group bullets and not them. You know how like that they are. Then they get mad and attack you. We just need to get the hell out of the Middle East altogether and support Israel only. Those others hate us no matter what we do for them. They see everything we do as weakness anyway, so we’re damned if we do, and damned if we don’t.

  • Nath Taylor

    Can’t you all see that the Media is playing games. I doubt it seriously if weapons were sent to Egypt from the U.S. The NWO always does the oposite and they always fund both sides. They make it seem that Obama is not for Israel, but he is. The ALPAC lobby controls the U.S. Gov’t, them and the Rothchilds (NWO). So whatever they release in the Media, you better start thinking of the opposite because they are full of mind games. Wake-Up and smell the Coffee and don’t fall for their games. Obama is in bed with Isreal (Zionist Leaders) in order to take over America. Wake-Up! Think the opposite to survive!
