Exit polls showing Benjamin Netanyahu winning his third term as prime minister of Israel tonight.
This as the United States is providing a gift to Egypt and Muslim Brotherhood.
President of -- -- of Mohamed Morrissey.
Four F sixteen fighter jets left this country for Egypt today all part of a foreign aid package that includes 200.
Abrams tanks and sixteen.
This despite the fact that Morrissey referred to President Obama as a liar and urged the hatred of Jews -- instilled in children in Egypt.
Joining us now is Andrew McCarthy former federal prosecutor -- convicted the blind -- Is also author of the -- spring -- the illusion of Islamic democracy.
And a great to have you with us and let's start with first -- these developments.
Is sending this aid to Egypt at this point and it is significant -- there should be no misunderstanding about that.
These F sixteens.
200 Abrams tanks very powerful instruments of war.
Right that this was originally -- a deal that was made back in 2010.
With Mubarak regime which was committed to the -- to keeping the peace with Israel.
It's now being turned over to a regime that's committed to the destruction of Israel notwithstanding what they say how -- regime.
Which is part of a global movement the Muslim Brotherhood.
At the Justice Department proved in US court in 2008.
Is committed to the as they said the elimination and destruction of western civilization from within -- -- so we're now dealing.
This is not such an issue of it ironic.
Timing coming as it does today.
Which are very important election held in Israel -- following the inaugural of President Obama or anticipating by 24 hours -- testimony of Secretary Clinton.
That's a confluence.
Of events that is almost on a measurable but here it is.
Does this country seem to be projecting a certain knowledge of its interest.
And a clear set of policies that make sense to the rest of the world -- -- be the Middle East North Africa Europe.
The government is delusional when it comes to.
Issues relating to Islamist Islamic supremacists want to impose Sharia we're told for example again and again.
That the Muslim Brotherhood is much different from al-Qaeda there moderates there evolves there -- -- People that we can work with yet look at the bottom line here.
Once the who wants the blind -- back -- demands being made again and again for the release of this terrorists that we convicted in the 1990s of atrocities against the United States Muslim Brotherhood wants him back and -- -- don't want to back.
What is the Muslim Brotherhood do as soon as they get into power while they impose Sharia that's exactly what they said they do -- exactly what al-Qaeda wants that.
And if they're very same time while Egypt is and increasingly.
Difficult economic straits there is great concern about the stability of that country.
Irrespective of the leadership right now.
And the United States does not have a clear coherent policy toward Egypt.
In and the one.
The one constant that has been of course -- for sixty.
Four years has been -- relationship with -- -- -- that relationship seems to been utterly.
Well it's not strained but literally.
Torn apart -- and in requiring reconstruction.
Where do we go from here with Israel.
And and why has why has Israel been so quiet in the face of this gift.
From the United States to each.
Well I if Israel is looking at a very very difficult situation and you know the other overlay on this is that we've had these elections and I thought I don't think it has it helps.
Netanyahu necessarily with his domestic political posture that he has difficult relations with the United States even though we -- Obviously question why.
Our government takes -- Austin I should take this opportunity to point out that these elections.
It was generally the conventional wisdom had been.
-- not you Netanyahu was on his way to a very strong wide victory it turns out to be the inverse of very narrow victory.
He will have a difficult challenge of looks like in the weeks ahead.
-- -- Creative Coalition.
Yeah he certainly will and again I don't I think.
What the perception and that animosity between.
Him and President Obama.
Hurts him a great deal domestically.
And I think.
In terms of you have a White House here that says that Israel doesn't know what's in its own best interest.
I think we can trust -- Israelis to know what's in their best interest but I don't think it helps Netanyahu and his perception among Israelis to have.
They are most important ally take that -- I want to very quickly get upon what we can expect in your judgment.
And Secretary Clinton as she testifies before.
Of the house and the senate tomorrow.
Well I I think you're gonna get a lot of testimonials from the Democrats about what a wonderful.
Secretary of state she's been which will have the effect of chewing up a lot of the time.
Hopefully she'll get some very blunt questions about -- -- enough that if this was the 1970s.
Everybody in America knew the questions what did the president know -- when did he know it right off the top of their -- yet.
Here we have seven hour siege president finds out early on that it's going on Americans are under attack.
Who told them one that he find out.
What did he do about it and if he gave orders that that work to protect the American -- -- -- -- -- who didn't carry them out if he didn't give orders.
What's the explanation for that.
It is Jennifer and despondent general -- said point blank that he was prepared to take action but never received orders.
To my knowledge there's been no.
No -- -- of the general nor has there been any offer scandalous malfeasance.
And it extends of course to the national liberal media that is by the -- -- quietly inaccurate and acquiescence.
To all that this administration.
Is doing or not -- -- Andrew McCarthy could have humans and thank you.
Much more on the.
