Obama nixed stealth fighter for Israel

Posted by Richard on July 14, 2010

The World Tribune reported on Monday that, according to unnamed diplomatic sources, President Obama denied Israel's request to buy F-15E stealth fighters and other weapons systems that had been approved by the Bush administration, but frozen by Obama (emphasis added):

WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama has rejected another Israeli request for advanced combat platforms.

Diplomatic sources said Obama refused a request by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for Israeli access to a proposed stealth variant of the F-15E fighter-jet.

Netanyahu, during what was termed a tough and unpleasant session, failed to win Obama's agreement to approve the export of U.S. offensive systems, including combat jets and helicopters produced by Boeing.

The sources termed the 90-minute one-on-one session between Obama and Netanyahu as "tough", with the two men far apart on such issues as a Palestinian state in the West Bank as well as Iran. They said Obama warned Israel against any military strike on Iran and stressed that Washington would resolve Iran's nuclear threat through a mixture of sanctions and diplomacy.  

Oh, yeah — 'cause those sanctions are working so well. And Iran's crazed mullahs and Ahm-a-doin-a-jihad can't possibly resist sweet talk from Obama. 

President Obama also insisted that Israel must unilaterally give up the West Bank territories:

The sources said Obama also urged Netanyahu to accept Palestinian Authority conditions for the resumption of direct negotiations. One of the demands submitted by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas was for Israel to agree to a full withdrawal from the West Bank before talks begin.

"There is very heavy pressure on Netanyahu to make unilateral concessions to the Palestinians," the source said.

Disgusting and contemptible.

For many years, Pius XII was called "Hitler's Pope" because he didn't speak out against the Nazis. (His reputation has recently been rehabilitated, thanks to evidence that he helped get as many as 200,000 Jews out of Germany after Kristallnacht.) 

If in the coming years, Tel Aviv gets nuked, the blood of millions of Jews will be on this president's hands. And he will be known as "The Islamofascists' POTUS."
