    Obama administration blocks sale of 6 AH-64D helicopters to Israel - approves 12 to Egypt
    But the sources said the Longbow as well as other defense requests have been shelved by the administration amid its review of the potential use of American weapons platforms by Israel.


    "Now Here is a threat .Supply the Arabs with advance Apache Longbow attack helicopter and Hamas attacks Jerusalem ,Obama's clearly at war with Israel !"

    President Obama holds up supply of helicopters to Israel out of concern for
    Palestinian civilians.

    But when it comes to 12 of the same helicopters for Egypt its the standard
    boiler plate "The proposed sale of this equipment and support will not alter
    the basic military balance in the region."]

    #1 Administration blocks helicopters for Israel due to civilian casualties
    in Gaza
    Wednesday, May 27, 2009

    WASHINGTON - The Obama administration has blocked Israel's request for
    advanced U.S.-origin attack helicopters.

    Government sources said the administration has held up Israel's request for
    the AH-64D Apache Longbow attack helicopter. The sources said the request
    was undergoing an interagency review to determine whether additional Longbow
    helicopters would threaten Palestinian civilians 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.

    The Israel Air Force has also requested U.S. permission to integrate the
    Spike extended-range anti-tank missile into the AH-64D. Spike ER, developed
    by the state-owned Rafael Advanced Defense Systems, has a range of eight
    kilometers and was installed on the Eurocopter Tiger and AgustaWestland A129
    helicopters.

    The sources said the deployment of Spike would require integration into the
    Longbow's millimeter-wave fire control and acquisition system. They said
    this would require permission from both Boeing and the U.S. government.

    Israel's Defense Ministry and air force have discussed procurement of
    additional Longbows with the U.S. firm Boeing. But the sources said the
    Longbow as well as other defense requests have been shelved by the
    administration amid its review of the potential use of American weapons
    platforms by Israel.

    Sounds like Gator's going to be working at the State Department. The real issue is that the administration is blaming Israel for casualties caused by Hamas. It was Hamas that fired thousands of rockets at Israeli civilians. It was Hamas that sited the launchers among Arab civilians and ensured that they would be hit by any returned fire. It was Hamas that used the war to settle scores and attacked Fatah supporters, inflating the "civilian" death toll. Yet, our administration blames this on Israel.

    Nope. But then, I didn't vote for him, now did I? What cracks me up is that there are Jews who did vote for him and who are now shocked, shocked I tell you, that he's undermining a key ally and making nice with a nation that directly endangers Israel, Europe and the US. Go figure...

    I am so mad I don’t know what to post. How can one man change all of our foreign policy so drastically? The Republicans sit back with hardly a whimper of protest. What does he have to do before we stand up and tell him enough? These wimpy little tea parties just aren’t cutting it for me.

    Young American Jews don't give a hoot about the homeland of their long gone fathers.To them liberalism is their new god and Liberal politics is everything .A Frenchman is to wine as an young American Jew is to liberalism .It flows in their veins and instills their every action.
