The Zionist Organization of America (ZOA) has praised Senator Rand Paul's (R–KY) call for stopping the sale of arms to the new, extremist, anti-Semitic, Israel-hating Islamist Egyptian regime of Mohamed Morsi. Last week, the Obama Administration sent four new, state-of-the art F-16 warplanes to Cairo, which are part of a package of military aid to Egypt encompassing 16 F-16s jets and 200 M1A1 Abrams tanks that was concluded in 2010 with the previous Hosni Mubarak regime. Senator Paul proposed an amendment to the bill extending the debt limit until May involving a halt to the arms sales which was voted down in the Senate today. Sources have informed the ZOA that AIPAC did not lobby to support Senator Paul's amendment. If this is not true, the ZOA urges AIPAC to publicly state its position and actions on this issue,...
ZOA National President Morton A. Klein said, "We praise Senator Rand Paul's efforts to halt the sales of U.S. arms to the Morsi regime in Egypt, a position we have been advocating ourselves.
"As we have argued, common sense and prudence dictate that the U.S. withhold all aid to Egypt until and unless Morsi gives a written commitment to observe the peace treaty with Israel; repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood platform and statements opposing peace, human rights and the Egyptian/U.S. alliance; and rescinds his pledge to work for freeing Islamist Sheikh Omar-Abdel Rahman, jailed by the U.S. for his role in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing that killed six people."
