Obama sending arms to Egypt, threatening Israel

To the editor:

President Obama is providing 20 F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, which brings its total to 260; plus 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks, bringing the total to 1,200.

These arms are offensive weapons which could be used against Israel or resold to other Arab countries or organizations for use against Israel.

Given the instability in Egypt and the ascendance of Mohammed Morsi, a devout member of the Muslim Brotherhood, to the presidency in Egypt, we should not be building up Egypt’s armed forces. The Muslim Brotherhood is committed to the destruction of Israel and the imposition of Sharia (Islamic) law in Egypt, other countries in the Middle East and throughout the world.

Israel, a democratic and Western-oriented country surrounded by totalitarian and anti-Western, anti-Christian, anti-Jewish, anti-Buddhist and anti-Hindu regimes, must be kept strong to counter threats emanating from various countries in the region.

Israel is the only friendly and trustworthy country standing in the Middle East.

It needs to be able to purchase U.S. arms, and needs our diplomatic and moral support.
