The excuse this time was alleged anger over an alleged film that allegedly insults Islam’s prophet, Mohammed.
But on this eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks that killed thousands, Muslim mobs in Libya and Egypt reminded us and the world why radical Islam can’t be trusted.
Meanwhile, the Obama Administration amply showed why it can’t be trusted to deal with the Muslim Brotherhood and other Muslim extremists.
Muslim mobs in Libya and Egypt stormed U.S. diplomatic compounds, killing one American in Libya and injuring another. In Egypt, they tore the American flag to shreds and raised a black flag touting Islam.
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton — whose deputy chief of staff Huma Abedin is known to have family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood — condemned the attacks and said the administration’s prayers are with the families of the dead and injured.
Someone else in the Obama Administration — one suspects the Oval Office staff — issued a statement that sounded sympathetic to the mobs:
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.
Presidential candidate Mitt Romney seemed livid at the administration’s statement and issued his own reaction:
I’m outraged by the attacks on American diplomatic missions in Libya and Egypt and by the death of an American consulate worker in Benghazi. It’s disgraceful that the Obama Administration’s first response was not to condemn attacks on our diplomatic missions, but to sympathize with those who waged the attacks.
Police surrounded the attacked compounds to try to prevent further violence, but the two attacks on the anniversary of 9/11 makes it pretty clear that this was a coordinated effort by Muslim extremist groups to make a statement.
The whole incident underscores the fundamental untrustworthiness of the Obama Administration, which has been working with the Muslim Brotherhood in Libya, Egypt and other countries to reshape the Middle East in Obama’s image.
Obama has funded military intervention in Libya and supported the uprising in Egypt, and is currently funneling taxpayer money to the “rebels” in Syria, who tools of the Muslim Brotherhood. On the day our diplomatic facilities were being attacked, it was also revealed that the Obama Administration was negotiating a deal with the Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood that would give them $1 billion to buy German submarines.
The excuse given by the mobs was anger over an online film being made by Sam Bacile, an Israeli-American real-estate developer who has posted clips of the anti-Islam film on YouTube.
The movie allegedly insults Mohammed and portrays him as a child molester, womanizer and killer. I haven’t seen the film, but according to traditional sources, Mohamed married a child bride, had multiple wives and personally beheaded numerous captives in bloody raids he led against his enemies.
So in other words, Muslims were fired up about a film no one had previously heard of by someone who “insulted” Mohamed by telling the truth about him.
The only real questions here are about the origin of the coordination of these attacks and how much encouragement the organizers received from a U.S. administration that is infiltrated by high-level people with known ties to the Muslim Brotherhood.
