This morning, the black flag of al Qaeda is flying outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, along with 3 other Members of the Consulate staff are dead.
How did we get to this point?
It should NOT be unexpected!!!
Just a week removed from removing Jerusalem and any mention of keeping Hamas in check from the liberal convention platform, Obama has, once again turned his back on our most important partner by declining to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu next week.
While God and Jerusalem WERE added back into the platform after unholy hell was raised by conservatives, the wording regarding Hamas was not.
It was Obama, the last time he and Prime Minister Netanyahu met, who TOLD the Prime Minister that Israel should return to their pre-1967 orders.
At that point, Prime Minister Netanyahu had to take Obama to school on the topic in a very public moment.
Obama told France’s Sarkozy that he was tired of dealing with the Prime Minister…A moment of clarity caught on a live mic.
Indeed, Obama, as president has never made the trip to Israel. He did it as a pandering candidate but, never as president and that too, sends an unmistakable message to Israel and their enemies.
And yesterday’s snub of a meeting with Netanyahu adds more fuel to the Islamist fire.
An American leader who professes to be a friend of Israel and devoted to the security of Israel, would, at this moment in world upheaval, drop everything to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu. An American leader would stand with Israel and against our mutual enemies.
Obama is no such leader as the only leading he knows, is from behind.
In this case, he doesn’t even want to be that close to the situation.
All of these incidents send a clear message to the combined enemies of Israel and the United States that Obama has no backbone.
When the Iranian people started an uprising against Ahmadinejad, and called out, in English, “Obama, help us” Obama turned a blind eye and deaf ear. In Egypt, as Mubarak fell, Obama insisted the Muslim Brotherhood have a seat at the table in forming a new government. The Brotherhood now CONTROLS Egypt, has threatened to eliminate the decade’s old Israel/Egypt peace treaty.
Obama has done nothing BUT embolden Islamists.
Just yesterday, Islamists in Egypt ripped down the American flag from the Embassy in Cairo.
They were chanting, on September 11th, “WE ARE ALL USAMA BIN LADEN…WE ARE ALL USAMA BIN LADEN!!”
Last night, with the angry mob surrounding our Egyptian Embassy, they started waving the flag of al Qaeda.
It is the same flag that, with the killing of Gaddafi, the al Qaeda flag began to fly over the courthouse in Benghazi.
The storming of the American Embassy, sovereign ground, was an Islamic response to an American citizen, who, protected by our right to free speech, made an unflattering cartoon movie trailer of Mohammad.
A clear message was sent to our enemies yesterday regarding the flag incident in Cairo.
SUPPOSEDLY the message was sent from the Embassy itself but, really? The embassy is sending out messages that haven’t been vetted by the white house after an act of war?
Here is that statement:
“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.”
They attack an American Embassy and…WE APOLOGIZE TO THEM??? ON THE 11TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ISLAMIC ATTACK ON OUR COUNTRY???
Now, this morning, after considerable uproar over an APOLOGY to those Islamists who perpetrated an act of war against the United States…
Obama has disavowed that statement!!!
NOBODY in that part of the world has an OUNCE of respect for weakness and Obama would have to rise ten levels to ascend to the status of weak.
Case in point…Just hours after the Embassy attack in Cairo, THE U.S. CONSULATE IN LIBYA WAS ATTACKED AND 3 Americans, INCLUDING THE U.S. AMBASSADOR…J. CHRISTOPHER STEVENS…HAVE BEEN KILLED AND AMBASSADOR STEVENS’ BODY WAS DRAGGED THROUGH THE STREET!!!
Years of weakness by Obama on the world stage combined with the weakness of yesterday’s apology followed by the weakness shown by Obama disavowing that apology…not being able to control his own embassy…
Has now empowered Islamists to fly an al Qaeda flag at the embassy in Cairo AND kill U.S. diplomats in Libya!!!!
The Embassy in Libya has been destroyed with RPG’s and set ablaze…Ambassador Stevens was in his car, trying to evacuate others from the besieged Embassy when that vehicle was hit by rockets.
LATE last night, Hillary Clinton released ANOTHER statement meant to contradict the ORIGINAL and now disavowed apology:
“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”
Anybody who believes these attacks and killings have been perpetrated against the United States, on September 11th, are due to a film being posted on the internet are nothing but pathetic, weak-minded, delusional fools.
Islamists have been EMBOLDENED to do these things because they KNOW they can get away with it!!!
Obama has done NOTHING BUT embolden our enemies and telegraphing our intentions and dates of retreat in Iraq and Afghanistan to the enemy while campaigning on how ASTUTE he was to do so, has let those enemies know, in no uncertain terms, that Obama and his administration have NO backbone to stand UP to such actions!!!
Obama continues to try and deal…DIPLOMATICALLY…with Iran over their nuclear weapons program.
He is trying to assert DIPLOMACY with the exact same ILK that just KILLED our diplomats in Libya and who are now gathered outside the Embassy in Cairo waving the flag of al Qaeda!!!
Direct and unquestionable acts of war of been perpetrated against the United States…Just like Kovar Towers, the USS Cole, the Beirut Barracks Bombings in 1983, the Iranian Hostage Crisis in 1979 and the first World Trade Center bombing in 1993.
Islamists are STILL at war with us and, once again, we are NOT at war with them!!!
Yesterday, several members of HAMAS were arrested by Mexican authorities JUST ACROSS OUR SOUTHERN BORDER!!!
If we don’t elect a lion with a titanium spine to replace the invertebrate occupying the oval office today…We and our allies will soon become the victims of events that will make 9-11 look like a Sunday School picnic!!!!
FOR THE RECORD, THE LAST TIME A U.S. AMBASSADOR WAS MURDERED IN A FOREIGN LAND, Adolph Dubs IN AFGHANISTAN…WAS DURING THE LILLY-LIVERED ADMINISTRATION OF JIMMY CARTER!!!
Obama, after releasing a “statement” is heading for Las Vegas today for a campaign swing.
