One American is dead after angry mob of Islamist liners attacked the US consulate in Benghazi during a protest over a film about Mohammed that was made in the USA.
The Herald Sun reported:
Nearly 3000 demonstrators, most of them hardline Islamist supporters of the Salafist movement or football fans, gathered at the embassy in protest over a film deemed offensive to the Prophet Mohammed which was produced by expatriate members of Egypt’s Christian minority resident in the United States.
Women wearing the niqab, the full-face veil worn by hardline Islamists, joined the rally chanting: “Sons of the Cross, anything but our beloved Mohammed.”
The film at the centre of anti-US protests in the Middle East was made by an Israeli-American who describes Islam as a ”cancer”, the Wall Street Journal says.
The movie, Innocence of Muslims, was directed and produced by Sam Bacile, a 52-year-old real-estate developer from southern California who says Islam is a hateful religion.
”Islam is a cancer,” Bacile told the newspaper.
He was speaking after protesters tore down the American flag at the US embassy in Cairo in protest at the film.
Bacile told the paper on Tuesday he was responsible for the film, saying he had raised $US5 million ($A4.81 million) to make it from about 100 Jewish donors, who he declined to identify.
So. Two US Embassies sacked with one American dead (4 Americans dead, see update) – on 9/11, no less – because a mob of degenerate fascists doesn’t like what someone said about their religion in a movie? Wow.
And the United States under this weak, pusillanimous regime does what? It bows to the mob.
It doesn’t stick up for American values like free speech and freedom of religion. According to this patently unAmerican regime, free speech is “abusive” when it “hurts the feelings” of the perpetually outraged. And respect for religion means groveling before an insane, murderous, black al Qaeda flag-waving mob on 9/11: “We’re sorry – we’re so so sorry we hurt your feelings…please don’t hurt us..”:
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.
An attack on our embassy that kills an American could rightly be considered an act of war, and we are in a crouching, defensive, self-flagellating position?
The left can take their “smart power” and shove it.
Yesterday, Islamist radicals not only attacked our U.S. Embassy in Benghazi they murdered our U.S. Ambassador and three of his staff members, who were also U.S. citizens. Two of the staff members were US Marines who died defending the embassy.
The U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other embassy staff were killed in a rocket attack on their car, a Libyan official said, as they were rushed from a consular building stormed by militants denouncing a U.S.-made film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.
Update: Fox News just reported U.S. Ambassador Stephens was suffocated and the other three Americans were shot.
I wonder if Obama will be bothered to interrupt his busy schedule to address any of this.
