A U.S.-born Israeli author and terrorism expert is questioning
the recent decision by the Obama administration to give 20
state-of-the-art F-16 fighters to Mohammad Morsi's Muslim
Brotherhood regime in Egypt.
Recently Fox News reported that despite the instability in Egypt
where a newly elected Islamic government teeters over an angry
population, the Obama administration is sending 20 more F-16s to
the North African nation, as part of a one-billion-dollar foreign
David Rubin is the former mayor of the Israeli city of Shiloh
and author The Islamic Tsunami: Israel and America in the Age
of Obama. He finds it hard to understand why the U.S.
would choose to contribute to an anti-American regime.
"You would think that the American
administration would be having second thoughts about giving to a
government that is clearly anti-West, anti-American, anti-Israel,
anti-freedom," he says.
"We've seen that in the recent power grab by Mohammad Morsi, the
president [of Egypt]."
But Rubin says President Obama is ignoring the concerns of some
members of Congress about moving forward with this deal.
"Since the beginning of the Islamic revolution in Egypt,
President Obama has been reluctant to criticize the Muslim
Brotherhood," he tells OneNewsNow. "So this is what's going on, and
the average person doesn't realize that the United States is
actually funding the Muslim Brotherhood."
Rubin believes it is naïve for the Obama administration to
believe that giving money and weapons to the Muslim Brotherhood is
going to change its ways.
