Attacks on U.S. Embassies Were Not About a Movie


Here are a couple of facts:

On June 4 the White House confirmed that the US had killed Abu Yahya Al-Libi – OBL’s Libyan lieutenant who had moved into Al Qaeda’s #2 spot after Ayman Zahawiri after the Navy SEALs whacked OBL.

On Tuesday 9/11, a tape was released of Zawahiri announcing that Libi had been killed earlier this year by a US drone attack. The Zawahiri tape was made during Ramadan which ended in the middle of last month. Zawahiri called for his terrorist underlings to avenge Libi’s death and especially exhorted Libyans to take revenge.

The attack in Libya was well planned and executed. It wasn’t about a spontaneous protest against some ridiculous internet movie of Muhammad. The assailants came armed to the teeth, with among other things, RPG 7s. They knew that the US Ambassador was in Benghazi rather than Tripoli. They knew how to track his movements, and were able to strike against him after he and his colleagues left the consulate building and tried to flee in a car. As Israel Channel 2’s Arab Affairs Correspondent Ehud Yaari noted this evening, you don’t often see well trained terrorists participating in protests of movies.

Then there is the attack in Cairo. They were led by Mohammad Zawahiri – Ayman Zawahiri’s brother. According the Thomas Josclyn in the Weekly Standard, the US media has been idiotically presenting him as some sort of moderate despite the fact that in an interview with Al Jazeerah he said said, “We in al Qaeda…”

Egypt’s US supported Muslim Brotherhood President Mohamed Morsi recently released Zawahiri from Egyptian prison. The same Barack Obama who has no time in his schedule to meet with Prime Minister Netanyahu next week in New York, is scheduled to meet Morsi.

The Egyptian government has not condemned the attack on the US Embassy in Cairo. But Morsi is demanding that the US government prosecute the film’s creator.

You may be wondering how some movie no one’s heard of has caused such a hullabaloo. Well, as it turns out, the film was screened on an Egyptian Salafist television channel. Obviously the Salafists — many of whom, like Zawahiri were released from prison by Morsi, wanted to stir up anti-US violence on the eve of 9/11. So if the film is responsible for the violence, a finger needs to be pointed to its chief distributor — Al Qaida’s Egyptian friends and members.

With these facts in hand, it is clear that the attempts to present these acts of war against the US as the consequence of some stupid nothing movie are obscene attempts to deflect the blame for these unwarranted attacks onto their victims and away from their perpetrators.

    Libya intervention? A desaster
    Afghanistan intervention? A desaster
    Iraq intervention? A desaster ( And let's not forget Mrs Glick enthusiastic support as "embedded journalist".)
    Syrian intervention? A desaster in the making.
    Iran intervention? A desaster in the planning.

    The only one certainty in US foreign policy is that it makes no absolutly sense, never.

      What are you going on about, Crackerpot? Is there supposed to be a joke about miss-spelling "disaster" or are you simply illiterate?
      But I'll agree with you that under Obummer, US foreign policy is making less and less sense. The Bum's foreign policy seems to be: "When Muslims attack, apologize!" That's the first talking point passed on to all the embassies.

        If you're refering to President BO, just refer to Him as Stinky. Matters not where you go, BO, by definition is Stinky.

          Okay, I'll settle for President Stinky Hussein. They're sure going to have to fumigate the WH after the Stinky brood is kicked out. Maybe it'll be like that episode of Seinfeld where the car park attendant left a strange foul odor in Jerry's car so strong that nothing would get rid of.
          A hundred years from now, visitors to the White House will be holding their noses and asking the tour guide what that terrible smell is. She will inform them that it's leftover from President Stinky (the First Muslim President] who occupied the West Wing from 2009 to 2013 and whose presence still permeates the entire building, even though they've tired every product on the market to erase it and have even called in exorcists.

        Under Obummer? The fail of the century was Bush's Iraq adventure, which handed the whole region to Iran on a silver plate. And Mrs Glick, who now supposedly knows it all better, rang the bell for invasion. Did she think we forgot?

    Thank you, Ms. Glick for presenting some facts about this because the most preposterous lies are being spread about it. According to dhimmies like Juan Cole and Carlin at Buzzflash, a 14-minute "hate-film" about Mohammed was made by evangelical Christians who claimed that it was funded by 100 Jews. The film was then passed it on to Al Quaida who used it to whip up riots in order to remain relevant in the new moderate democratic Egypt and Libya. In other words, this was a conspiracy by evangelical Christians and Al Quaida to stir up riots and then blame it all on the Jews! Nice try, libtards! What first aroused my suspicions was the claim that "the Jews" had told the film maker (who turns out not to exist) to make a movie about Mohommed that shows "how Islam is a cancer. in the world." Jews don't use that kind of terminology,. It's the Muslims who go on about Judaism being a "cancer." I don't know who is worse, the Muslim savages or the libtard dhimmies.

    In fairness to Crackerjack, I've been so mad at that doofus Obama I've misspelled words too. And using the autocorrect on my iPad has produced a few unintended posts….

    Some stuff compared to the idiot with his finger on the button….What's to keep him from nailing Israel to appease his muslim brethren? Congress? He has run rough shod over Congress and they do nothing.

    Are you starting to "get it" yet? I guess 9/11 wasn;t enough of a wake up call. Does it take seeing a man dragged through the streets and murdered to get you to freakin wake up?

    • BS77

      In addition…I just read that US intelligence KNEW trouble was coming, especially on September 11th…and had 48 hours to get armed US security personnel posted at US Embassies…but nothing was done. It was also revealed that our ambassador(my condolences to his family) was tortured, beaten, sodomized and murdered …by the barbaric savages we supposedly "liberated"…..We never liberated Libya…it is still a s— hole like SOmalia, SUdan and all the rest of those horrible places.

  • Sonshine Patriot

    In our discourse we sometimes overlook the obvious. US foreign policy is without a doubt lacking basic principles that have worked in the past. First we should have never supported the rebels in Libya or in Egypt; they have goals that are contrary to bring peace to the region. Secondly we are through our actions changing the face of the ME; to a more radical Islamist ME that is more intolerant and more violent toward Christians and Jews. Third whether Obama is doing all these things by design or by some miss guided vision of a kinder, gentler Islam is not working. No matter how you see it we need a change of direction when it comes to dealing with elements in the ME that are dedicated to destroying American influence for the purpose destroying Israel as a nation. That is the driving force behind Islam’s radicalization. Muslims see America supporting those against radical Muslim goals. I think we should be aware of the common thread that exists between the rise of Iranian influence and the attacks of the last couple days and deal with it.

  • Vic Kelley

    THANK YOU for posting this. I haven't read much about this I've been without internet for a while. All I'd heard so far from the news was the story about an "offensive" youtube video.

  • Anonymous

    Ezra Levant is arguing that the violence exploding around all the U.S. embassies ( especially those associated with the inappropriately named "Arab Spring" ) is the opening round of a new chapter in the War on Terror. But, of course, no one in the Obama administration or State Dept, can dare use the term "terror" or "terrorists". They''re just disgruntled protesters.

  • Iratus Vulgas

    It's sad to think that the Egyptian radicals take us for the dupes we may be turning in to. Surely, the basis of international relations aren't determined by YouTube videos made by fringe-cult bloggers. That's not really possible is it? I'm not yet convinced that foreign policy has been reduced to a bunch of pop culture fanatics flaming each other on social networks. God help us if we've gotten that stupid.

      There are reports from Canadian Sun News that the Muslim Brotherhood is sending "sympathetic" tweets to the US embassy in Cairo — but the Americans are tweeting back — asking if the MB is aware that the Americans are also reading what the MB is tweeting in Arabic…It's a New World…(I don't buy the ruse that Muslim rage was due to a ludicrous film.)

  • tagalog

    Today, September 13, 2012, the MSN opening screen's news headline contains a blurb that says: "Protesters stormed the (Yemen) embassy, setting a fire & attempting to take furniture & computers. The violence stems from anger over a film critical of Islam's Prophet." So where's the last sentence: "U.S. Marine guards repelled the attack, killing or wounding dozens of Yemeni protesters?"

    No one here cares from Glick to the bloggers about American lives lost or those which are now put in danger Overseas . This is a strawman to strikle out against the ONE you most hate .

    The makers of this film tricked the cast and crew into thinking the personality portrayed in the film was someone by the name of George . After the film was made mohammed was INSERTED .And the LIE that it was financed by "100 Israeli Jews " .

    I'm not saying that muslims are nt barbarians , but WHO PROVOCKED THEM AND AIMED THEM ? What does this say about the film maker ? While putting so many lives in danger , and CONVENIENTLY HIMSELF REMAINING ANONYMOUS >

    FOR WHAT ? The lives lost , the chaos , the danger that innocents have been placed in -FOR WHAT ? There was no concerns for those lives ! And what of the jews around the world whose lives will be placed in danger ? You klnow those JEWS who all here claim to so fervently love ? AND ALL FOR WHAT ? A chance to take a stab at a political opponent ? For that is the glaringly obvious purpose which is becoming more clear as the facts are unraveled .

  • amuse

    What will be the EXCUSE this time ? No one knew what would happen ? It IS A KNOWN FACT THAT EXACTLY THIS WOULD HAPPEN ….the filmaker and all accomplices are GUILTY OF MURDER AND RECKLESS ENDANGERMENT . Is there no limits to the unmitigated hatred that exists , to do something like this, in order to strike out at a political opponent ? Vile hypocrites , vicious animals …that's what the makers of this film and ANY of its approvers or defenders ARE .

  • Amused

    ONE person taunts a wild caged animal , then opens the gate and stands back as the beast escapes in a rage , and tears into the unknowing innocents . This is a despicable disgrace and abuse of free speech , NO DIFFERENT than screaming ' FIRE ' in a crowded movie house .

    The movie in question was released about a year ago and found its way to you tube. Remember the riots over the Danish cartoons? They did not start until a few months after the cartoons were published. Are Muslims slow readers?

    Muslims are savages unless kept in check by dictators such as Kaddafi or Mubarak. The movie is nor responsible for the riots. Mohammed is.

    Under Sharia law blasphemy is punishable by death. The definition of blasphemy is so broad that a non Muslim could show a Muslim a time table and the latter could call it blasphemy. And, since non Muslims have no standing in Sharia courts, they invariably lose. Those who are asking for censure or punishment for the people associated with the movie are playing into the hands of Islam. They are pushing the US toward Sharia compliance.

    • wsk

      I'm not sure if Muslims are allowed to read…..

  • MissButterfly

    The attacks were indeed NOT about the movie, but the media needs to find some way to blame conservative Christians and Jews – I've heard many blaming Terry Jones.
    I think our foreign policy should be one of total Muslim avoidance. No Muslims should be allowed in this country, the ones already here should be forced to give up their sick religion or leave, we should give NO money to Muslim states, and we should not trade with them or affiliate with them in any way. And this includes Saudi Arabia – we get most of our oil from Canada, and if we'd be sensible and start drilling more for our own oil, we'd depend less on any foreign governments. The further we can stay away from Muslims, the better!

  • Ghostwriter

    Why am I not surprised that we hear howls of protest over a movie most Americans have never heard of? It's a shame they can't take criticism well.

    The Sand People can't handle the truth or any criticism of their totalitarian ideology. Any excuse is sufficient to turn out the Arab street or justify murder. Movie or no movie – so what. Why should we limit our right of free speech merely to satisfy the sensibilities of third world savages. Apologists for our First Amendment Right of Free Speech, especially Mrs Clinton, are an embarrassment. Appeasement breeds contempt and aggression. The Obama regime has sown the wind, now I fear we may reap the whirl wind.

  • EmJay

    The alleged "movie" is the pretext. Muslim Brotherhood & the Salafists have been looking for a way to justify killing ALL the coptic christians of egypt; and any western nonmuslims in egypt who are there in any way shape or form, whether they're there for non-government organizations, or as government entities. They were too organized and came too well equipped for there to have been any "spontaneity" associated with the premeditated protests. Guiliani said it best "these are acts of war". So which part of the word "war" don't Hilary Clinton and her boss, Obama, understand?

    Turning point of the war date/mayan calendar 9/9/2009.
    September(Constellation Virgo) 2009, Al Barack Hussein Obama, led 50,000 muslim men in prayer on the Mall in Washington, DC. They prayed for "The Soul of America."
    This was an occult "Act of Surrender" to Islam, which (metaphysically) determines the "Future Destiny of America." the reason why we are witnesses to everything that is currently happening in the middle east and the US is because Obama has surrendered our country to Islam.
    He needs to capture Jerusalem for Islam by mayan calendar dates of 2012 – 2016.
    All he needs to do is to change our embassy from Tel Aviv to our US property purchased in the (1940's)
    Then he will have conquered Jerusalem for Islam.
    Barack – name of Mohammed's horse that he rode when he conquered Medina –
    Hussein name of 3rd Imam who also will bring in the Mahdi-
    Obama (in Persian means) "he is with us."

    Obama is not on America's side, he is titular head of Islamist organizations that are causing
    America to bleed and it must stop. We need people with strength of character, moral conviction
    and a love of America. A marxist, Islamist stooge as president is a disaster for America
    and the sooner he is gone with his criminal gang the sooner life may find some form of
    guarded stability…….As is the Muslim Brotherhood controls Egypt, Lybia and Washington D.C.,

  • Questions

    Muslims perpetually feel "insulted" by the tiniest joke or criticism. The inability to handle even slight cognitive dissonance without throwing a tantrum is exactly what separates children from adults. Some people, trapped in a closed belief system, regress to perpetual childhood. Such is the world of Islam.
