    President Barack Obama’s deputies are negotiating a $1 billion aid package with Egypt’s new Islamist government, even as Egypt’s cash-strapped military revealed that it is trying to buy $1 billion worth of German submarines that could threat Israel’s fast-growing offshore energy projects.

    The Germans government has pointedly declined to deny the incendiary revelation about Egypt’s request to buy the two submarines.

    Instead, the German government offered vague support for Israel, which is facing renewed threats from Iran’s nuclear program and the Muslim Brotherhood’s rise to power in Egypt.

    “There has been no change in the German government’s position towards Israel, in the commitment the German government feels towards Israel’s security,” a spokesman for Germany’s prime minister’s told Der Speigel, a major German newspaper.

    State Department spokesman Victoria Nuland did not respond to an inquiry by The Daily Caller.

    The submarine purchase will likely be an issue in the U.S. election, because both parties are vying for support from a relatively large concentration of swing-voting Jewish Americans in Florida.

    During the Democrats’ convention in Charlotte, for example, several speakers declared that Obama is a strong supporter of Israel’s defense.

    “The Democratic platform reflects the president’s unflinching commitment to Israel’s security and future as a Jewish state,” former Rep. David Wexler declared Sept. 4. “To strengthen Israel’s qualitative military advantage, the president has increased security assistance to Israel to record levels — more than any other president,” he claimed.

    Those declarations came after party leaders OK’d a platform document that did not recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. Obama reversed the decision, and directed that Jerusalem be cited in the platform document.

    Islamist groups, including Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood and their supporters in the United States, oppose any recognition of Israel and its capital city...

    Only if we keep him in office.

    He says one thing and does another. His support for Israel is unwavering, but he will assist Egypt in their planned attack.

    We have always showered the Egyptians with money and gifts though, I doubt that will change if and when Obama leaves office.

    It's really ironic that two German submarines might cause so much destruction to a Political Campaign without even firing a shot... Oh, and the Billion Dollar aid package... Has our Government lost its mind? Egypt is not going to be a Champion for U.S. interests in the Mideast... I can think of better places to spend a Billion Dollars at home, rather than providing aid to the Muslim Brotherhood.

    Egypt has been getting 1 billion dollar aid packages from the US for decades.

    Have you talked to an Egyptian? 90% of everyday Egyptians despise the US with a passion, they wouldn't piss on us if we were on fire. The onlty Egyptians that like the US are Mubaraks people and some of the educated Egyptians but that is a small number.
