“Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas!” (Shouted in Cairo today- Andrew McCarthy)
The Corner at NRO ^ | September 11, 2012 | Andrew McCarthy

Posted on 09/11/2012 3:47:16 PM PDT by SE Mom

Nina is exactly right that the appalling statement issued by the Obama State Department, apparently prior to the storming of the U.S. embassy in Cairo today, betrays the president’s agenda to impose on Americans sharia speech suppression standards in blatant violation of the First Amendment. That, however, is far from the most egregious part of today’s episode in Egypt.

To attack another country’s embassy is an act of war. Now, some will be quick to point out that our embassy was not attacked by the Egyptian regime. That is no defense. Everybody was on notice that there might be rioting today. It was in anticipation that there could be trouble that the State Department issued its despicable statement — putting the onus for violence on American free speech rather than Islamist savagery. Further, it was almost exactly a year ago that an Egyptian mob stormed the Israeli embassy in Cairo, doing almost exactly what they did today: scaling the embassy walls, tearing down the Israeli flag, and replacing it with their own flag.

In that instance, as in today’s, the Egyptian regime could have made certain that the embassy was secure. It chose not to. Unlike the Israelis, however, we actually pay the Egyptians nearly $1.5 billion a year in military aid — funding Obama not only continued under circumstances where it was obvious Egypt would be ruled by anti-American Islamic supremacists, but also which the president would now have our bankrupt government complement with yet another billion dollars in economic assistance.

What are we getting for this largesse? Egypt has renewed relations with Iran, is seeking to purchase submarines from Germany that could be used to attack Israeli assets, is re-militarizing the Sinai in violation of the Camp David Accords, and now cannot — actually, would not — even protect our embassy. And all this against a background in which the Muslim Brotherhood’s Supreme Guide, Mohammed Badi, called for violent jihad against the United States in 2010, cheered that excursions into Afghanistan and Iraq have put America in its death throes, and reaffirmed — after the Muslim Brotherhood’s electoral victories — the Brotherhood’s ultimate goal of a global caliphate governed by sharia.

Egypt is an enemy of the United States. We wanted free elections and we got them. What they have given us, as I argue in my imminent new book, Spring Fever: The Illusion of Islamic Democracy, is an Egyptian regime that reflects Egypt’s Islamic supremacist population — among the world’s worst human rights violators.

“Obama, Obama, there are still a billion Osamas!” they cried today as they attacked our embassy, shredded our flag, and replaced it with the al Qaeda flag — the one so popular with the “rebels” in Libya and Syria. One of the 9/11 hijackers was an Egyptian, as is the current leader of al Qaeda, as is the Blind Sheikh. A real ally would be embarrassed. An enemy marks the day like Egypt did. The Obama administration marked the day by apologizing for free speech and declining a presidential audience to the prime minister of Israel — our actual ally in the region. President Obama’s calendar is very busy after all: between campaigning and rounds of golf, he’s blocked a day to roll out the red carpet for Egypt’s new president.

Is it too much to hope that the Romney campaign might see an opportunity here to make a point about American national security and foreign policy under Obama? Remember back in 2002, back when we were following the original “with us or against us” Bush Doctrine — back before the doctrine was warped by delusional visions of sharia democracy? Here’s the question: Would they have dared storm the American embassy in Cairo on September 11, 2002?

More attacks in Libya!

http://english.ahram.org.eg/NewsContent/2/9/52597/World/International/Mob-sets-fire-to-US-consulate-in-Benghazi-witness.aspx

“An armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam, attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi on Tuesday and set fire to the building, witnesses reported.”

“The attack happened on the same day as a similar group of hardliners waving black banners attacked the US embassy in Cairo and tore down the US flag, but it was not immediately clear if the two incidents were coordinated.”

At this point tell every Arab country that each embassy will show the purported offensive movie. When they storm the walls kill every last miserable one of them. Next day announce the same thing. Rinse and repeat. When the day comes that nobody shows to storm the walls during the movie showing, it’s time to discuss diplomatic relations with the “moderate” Muslims of the Arab world.

U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement
September 11, 2012
The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others

To attack another country’s embassy is an act of war.

Where were the Marine "guards" guarding the embassy? Some sustained machine gun fire would have broken up the muzzie thugs very quickly. Instead, we let these bastards desecrate out flag and make the USA look like "felines", and I don't mean "cats".

Muslims are striking against the U.S. in Egypt and Lybia on 9/11 to celebrate that anniversary. Obama supports Islam and Obama is an enemy of the U.S.A. Obama issued an Executive order giving Amnesty to a million illegals. this is an unlawful act. Obama is acting like a dictator and has buried the U.S. in debt. The goal of Islam is world domination. It is a great evil:

http://www.faithfreedom.org/

Islam, as it is taught in the Quran (Koran) and lived by Muhammad, as is reported in the Hadith (Biography and sayings of the Prophet) is a religion of Injustice, Intolerance, Cruelty, Absurdities, discrimination, Contradictions, and blind faith. Islam advocates killing the non-Muslims and abuses the human rights of minorities and women. Islam expanded mostly by Jihad (holy war) and forced its way by killing the non-believers. In Islam apostasy is the biggest crime punishable by death. Muhammad was a terrorist himself therefore terrorism cannot be separated from the true Islam. Islam means submission and it demands from its followers to submit their wills and thoughts to Muhammad and his imaginary Allah. Allah is a deity that despises reason, democracy, freedom of thought and freedom of expression.

The question is: who did more damage to the country, Osama or Obama?

Are we better off now that Osama is (allegedly) gone?

Will we be better off when Obama has left?

‘So(n) of Hamas’ to Make Film About Islam, Phophet Muhammad (Cairo Embassy attack)
Christian Post ^ | June 21, 2012 | Michael Gryboski

Posted on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 4:21:49 PM by cdga5for4

The son of a founding leader of Hamas has announced that he will be making a movie about Islam with the intention of showing Muslims the “real nature” of Prophet Muhammad.

Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of the spiritual leader of Hamas, Sheikh Hassan Yousef, announced his project in Jerusalem at a press conference on Tuesday.

“I think this is the time to expose the real nature of Islam,” said Yousef to reporters gathered. “Islam is a religion of war and most Muslims don’t understand the true nature of Islam. This is the time and I would like to announce it today here from Jerusalem, next to the Temple Mount.”

http://news.sky.com/story/983922/us-official-killed-in-libya-prophet-protest

A US official has been killed and another wounded in Libya as an armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam attacked the US consulate in Benghazi.

Libya’s deputy interior minister Wanis al Sharef said: “One American official was killed and another injured in the hand. The other staff members were evacuated and are safe and sound.” He could not say if the dead man was a diplomat.

In the Egyptian capital, Cairo, protesters climbed the walls of the US embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it.

The protests were sparked by outrage over a video being promoted by an extreme anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian campaigner in the US, which the demonstrators say insults the Prophet Mohammed.

The US condemned the attack in Benghazi, amid reports that the mission had been set on fire and targeted with rocket-propelled grenades.

“We can confirm that our office in Benghazi, Libya, has been attacked by a group of militants,” State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland said.

“We condemn in strongest terms this attack,” she added in a statement issued before reports of the death, which came on the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

We bend over backwards to avoid offending everyone around the world. Yet they can spit on us, shoot us, burn us out and all we do is CONDEMN the actions against us?

It is no wonder that we are reviled, we don’t even defend ourselves, we do our darnedest to “Understand their feelings toward us”. It’s not that we aren’t civilized, it’s that these Mobs only respect force and willingness to use it. It’s the way their own leaders treat them and that is their cultural norm.
