By now we know of our ambassador’s murder in Libya. The pictures of the mob dragging his corpse in the streets of Benghazi are already circulating on the web. I cannot in decency post or link to the pictures.
Let’s compare and contrast:
Look familiar? Tehran 1979 vs. Cairo 2012.
And what was our fearless administration’s response? To excuse and apologize. Sort of like Jimmy Carter back in the day.
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.
We haven’t seen the ‘president’ yet but he sent out Hillary to countermand the first statement. She still tried to minimize the matter, blaming the violence on “a small and savage group”. Sure. Like anybody believes that.
The mob supposedly was offended by a YouTube video they didn’t like – a video that’s been out for months. First, I don’t care. I don’t believe in coddling savages and we don’t recognize ‘blasphemy’ as an excuse for murder or acts of war.
Second, these savages routinely lop off heads, abuse women and persecute everyone who’s not a Muslim. We don’t reason with such as these or apologize to them.
The leaders of Egypt and Libya should be in fear for their very lives.
