Obama: No Attack Helicopters for Israel, But Allows Egypt To Buy Them

In yet another "clueless in Washington" move the Obama administration has blocked Israel's request for advanced U.S. Apache attack helicopters.

According to Yoni The Blogger the Obama administration has blocked the sale of six Apache Longbow attack helicopters to Israel because the helicopters would threaten Palestinian citizens in the Gaza strip.

"During the recent war, Israel made considerable use of the Longbow, and there were high civilian casualties in the Gaza Strip," a source close to the administration said.

The sources said Israel has sought to purchase up to six new AH-64Ds in an effort to bolster conventional and counter-insurgency capabilities. They said Israel wants to replenish its fleet after the loss of two Apache helicopters in the 2006 war with Hizbullah.


However, the Obama administration has approved the sale of the same helicopters to Egypt.

Let's face it folks, the only reason why the sale has been blocked is because the helicopters will be used to defeat Hezbollah, the PLO, and other terrorist organizations and individuals in that region, something that Obama opposes.

The Obama administration is doing everything it can to show the Muslim world that the US is no longer Pro-Israel. It is a policy that we will come to regret, as I believe that Israel is our only true ally in the middle east.

Recruiting Center Shooting Suspect Is Muslim Convert

The suspect in the Arkansas Military Recruiting Center shooting that took the life of a US soldier and injured another converted to Islam as a teenager, according to Fox News.
Abdulhakim Mujahid Muhammad, the 23-year-old accused of killing a U.S. soldier and injuring another in the attack Monday in Little Rock, was born in Tennessee as Carlos Leon Bledsoe. He reportedly converted to Islam as a teenager, and court records show he changed his name in March 2006.

There is no indication that the suspect was part of any larger plot to attack the military at this time.
Prosecutors say he Muhammad was targeting U.S. soldiers "because of what they had done to Muslims in the past" and was angry about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Neil Livingstone, a national security and terrorism consultant, said some people on the margins of society are "easy marks" for radical Islamists who energize them with twisted teachings about Islam.
"Most of these guys - I think what it comes down to - they're misfits, they believe they've suffered injustice. ... They basically are striking back at society."

That is especially the case in prisons, where many black inmates convert to Islam and which have been identified as a "radicalizing cauldron" by law enforcement officials.


Which brings me to another point for me blogging about this, if many in prison are converting to Islam now, what do we think is going to happen if we house terror suspects in our prisons when we close GITMO.

Wouldn't it stand to reason that this could increase the recruiting of those that are already attracted to Islam to learn the radical Islamic ways and become terrorists themselves?

Just food for thought, folks.
