After days of protests over an anti-Islam film, American diplomatic missions in the Middle East and North Africa were braced for further violence after Friday prayers. The US put its overseas missions on high alert.
Germany has closed its embassies in a number of Muslim-majority countries in fear of attacks. "We are observing how the security situation develops with great attentiveness and we have increased security precautions at a number of foreign missions," a spokesman for the German Foreign Office told SPIEGEL ONLINE. Embassies in North Africa, Afghanistan and Pakistan are believed to be among those affected.

“Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seated reservations about the free world. In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans. But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.”
“One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.”
I think they did, until they realized he is a dangerous fricking idiot.
APPEASEMENT and APOLOGIES are not a Mid-East policy.
Muslims only understand Beheading, killings and enslavement.
AND THEY LOVE IT.
They raise their kids that as long as they kill others they are happy to die themselves.
They call these crazed a-wipes Martyrs. They are idiots.
Anyone who bows to Muslims is either beheaded by them or becomes their servant forever.
I will always recall the comment from an unknown Syrian interviewed while sitting in a coffee shop in Damascus after our special forces blitzkrieg rout of the Taliban from Kabul in 2002: "Obviously it is not a good idea to upset the Americans."
That is what the "Arab Street" thought then. Now they know we are indecisive and nothing to be afraid of.
This is the story the MSM is ignoring. Entire Obama Doctrine failed.
On the contrary, little barry bastard mooselimb’s ME policy is working beyond his wildest explectations, destroying world peace at a record pace!
Absolutely proceding according to PLAN. Why else would he DO NOTHING when given a 48 hour in advance heads-up as to what was coming?!
first of all, it is not about an obscure anti-muslim film. funny how that trailer has been around for months and it didn’t come to light until sept 11.
a child could see through that stupid thought. tired of hearing all the news media believing what the fascist/marxist/nazi-islamists are telling them and swallowing it whole.
premeditated, looking for an excuse to riot and murder, and our stupid administration agrees with them and apologizes to them because someone exercised free speech.
what could expect from our muslim president. shut down the free speech rights of Americans.
Where was the left when some left wing idiot put a replica of Jesus on the Cross in a bottle of urine and called it art?
Where were they when the movie “ the temptation of Christ” was released?
they respect religion? not so. hypocrisy on parade, brought to you by the rats and liberals, and fascists and communists that inhabit the demorat party.
the destruction of middle east diplomacy presented to you by the smartest man in America, with the help of hitlery and mclaim.
Just wait till Iran gets the bomb!
The liberals have no respect for Islam. They have jump lumped them int o their bag of victims, not realizing that radical Muslims have only contempt for them. Not just the actual terrorists but the heads of Muslim states. Islam is a warrior creed, which is why it won the admiration of so many British military men. But liberals refuse to admit this. They rant on about Joshua, not realizing that Mohammed was Joshua writ large. The story of the Bible is that as the people of Israel grew older, they were better and better instructed in the lessons of the Law. But to the Muslims, they cannot learn. The Koran is the final word, and that was said in the 7th Century. In their understanding, there is no progress.
There was some woman on “Special Report” tonight (along with Charles Krauthammer and Steven Hayes) and she was really tearing into Romney over his statements of the last few days. Steve had a pretty good response to her but I imagine she is typical of the mainstream media.
I actually believe that the elimination of islam is necessary for the survival of civilization.
i would turn mecca and medina into a sea of glass, bulldoze down the dome of the rock and eliminate iran immediately.
no sense putting off tomorrow, what you can do today.
We should refer to these attacks as the “9/11 Embassy Attacks” to make it clear this was a terrorist act and not about a stupid movie.
