Libyan Weapons Flowing into Gaza, Thanks to Obama


Obama has claimed that nothing changed with the Arab Spring. Apart from Egypt being run by the parent organization of Hamas and lots and lots of leftover weapons from his Libyan War getting shipped to Hamas.

Security sources said a gang had smuggled the consignment – consisting of 108 Grad rocket warheads and 19,646 rounds of ammunition – into the seaport of Marsa Matruh, according to Egyptian daily Al-Masry al-Youm.

The consignment was most likely destined for Gaza but could also have been en route to buyers in Egypt’s increasingly lawless Sinai.

According to a report in The Washington Post last year, large caches of weapons have flooded into Egypt from Libya, including surface-to-air missiles, rockets and anti-aircraft guns. The missiles are smuggled into Sinai and then into Gaza via networks of tunnels.

In addition to Libya, weapons are also being smuggled into Gaza and Sinai from Sudan and from Lebanon, via Iranian proxy Hezbollah.

The Libyan War was a major contributor to the Gaza War.

A top Israeli defense official says Gaza is being flooded with sophisticated weapons from Libya and that the anti-aircraft missile fired last week at an Israeli helicopter likely originated there.
Yossi Kuperwasser, who directs the Ministry of Strategic Affairs, says “significant” numbers of weapons have been smuggled into the territory from Libya since the overthrow last year of dictator Moammar Gadhafi. The country is awash in weapons after the eight-month civil war and has weak central authority.

Palestinian militants in Gaza launched a shoulder-fired Strela missile at an Israeli helicopter last week but missed. It was the first such launch from Gaza.

Mr. Kuperwasser said Wednesday that Israel has long assumed that Gaza militants have kept such weapons, but probably only fired them after they amassed a large enough stockpile.

    Irony. Gaza getting all kinds of things from Egypt, yet Humus et al whine about a "blockade". Sounds like the idiots that whine about a "blockade" on Cuba.

      The thing that makes the temperature of my temper rise is the fact that Hamas quite possibly could be receivng all that it needs to step-up it's efforts in causing the deaths of more Israeli's – including children – by Barack "Hussein" Obama in the name of America, after paying $147 million to Gaza. >:(

        And Irael is supposed to be America's ally! (:(

    The" Arab Spring" is nothing more than "Chicago Community Organizing" on an International level.

    Thanks Obama, you sure fooled a lot of people.

    "'KNOW'" THIS TO BE "'TRUE'": if Barak "Hussein" Obama "did 'if fact' supply" the weapons which Hamas – Jihadi militants – will be using to kill, maim, and/or wound an Israeli; there is a possibility an American will suffer the same things
    from the weapons used by the Jihadi militants "supplied 'by'" Barack "Hussein" Obama – the President of the American.

    REMEMBER TO PRAY FOR "'THE 'REPENTANCE' AND 'DELIVERANCE' UNTO 'THE 'SALVATION''" of a-l-l souls IN HELPING them, AS WELL AS your self IN "'THE 'PREPARING''" FOR "'THE 'RAPTURE' OF 'THE 'CHURCH''".

    Take Care.
