Of course, with a policy of Muslim appeasement – mixed in with a total disregard of the Constitution from the Obama Administration – it should come as no surprise.
Thousands of Egyptian demonstrators shouting “Obama, we are here to sacrifice for Osama” and “We are all Osama bin Laden,” ripped down the Stars and Stripes today – which is the anniversary of the September 11, 2001, attacks in the US. – at the US embassy in Cairo and replaced it with an Islamic flag inscribed with the Muslim profession of faith: “There is no God but God and Mohammed is the prophet of God.”
The motivation behind this latest expression of love from the “religion of peace” is apparently driven by their displeasure with a little known movie linked to a Coptic Christian in the U.S., saying it vilifies the Islamic Prophet Muhammad.
Of course, the Administration released a statement soundly condemning the
Muslim extremists Americans who “abuse” that pesky Constitution, particularly the 1st Amendment portion that covers Freedom of Speech:
“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 … 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.”
I guess this shouldn’t come as any surprise from the near fetish-like “open hand” foreign policy of the this Administration. But it does beg the question, why does he hold the religious rights of radical Islam above those of the pro-life Catholics and Christians in America who object to the mandates in Obamacare?
Maybe it’s because he’s never been Catholic, while according to Jeremiah Wright, he has been Muslim.
The attacks on American embassies – there was another in Libya where an American was killed - are disgraceful. Obama’s pathetic apology to radical Islamists - particularly on the anniversary of 9/11 - is reprehensible.
Charles Krauthammer has the right idea on how we should have responded.
On Special Report, (he) reacted to the statement, calling it “an embarrassment.” He said, “That’s a hostage statement. That’s a mob of Al Qaeda sympathizers in Egypt, forcing the United States into making a statement essentially of apology, on 9/11 of all days, for something of which we are not responsible. I would issue a statement saying to the mob, ‘go to hell.’ The way America works, the way democracy works, is that everybody has a right to express themselves.”
Apologize for Freedom of Speech or tell them to “go to hell.” I think you know where I stand.
