Christopher Stevens Feeds the Crocodile

Pages: 1 2

Clinton, her State Department and its media allies appear unnaturally eager to paint Christopher Stevens as an American martyr to the cause of Libyan Islamism, a kinder, gentler Rachel Corrie who willingly died so that the Islamists might have their dream of an Islamic state in Libya.

We will of course never know what was going through Christopher Stevens’ mind on September 11, 2012, as he battled the choking smoke, experiencing what so many New Yorkers had experienced on September 11, 2001. Like them, he was faced with a terrible dilemma, a choice between remaining in the fire and committing suicide by going outside.

Many in the World Trade Center chose to jump to their deaths, but Christopher Stevens chose to remain inside and die rather than face the tender mercies of his attackers. Stevens had spent enough time in Libya to have seen what the jihadist fighters did to their captives and must have known what horrors he could expect at their hands. The photos that have been released, along with claims by Libyan jihadists that they sexually assaulted his corpse, suggest that he made the right choice. And perhaps in those final moments, facing that terrible choice, Christopher Stevens finally understood the true horror of the Muslim world that he had fallen in love with as a Peace Corps volunteer.

“He was an avid student of Islam and the Middle East, and consistently strove to build the proverbial bridge between our two cultures in the face of sometimes overwhelming antagonism and bitter misunderstanding,” a friend from the diplomatic service tells us. But though Christopher Stevens may have studied Islam, he had learned very little about it, and so his final lesson was the bloody one that Westerners who never really learn what Islam is about end up receiving.

“The world needs more Chris Stevenses,” Hillary Clinton said, but does it really? Does it need more tall dead blond Americans lying bloodied in the gutters of Muslim cities? Does it need men who give up the hopes and dreams of their country to take on the dreams of their enemies without ever realizing where the fatal road of those dreams leads?

Stevens’ former Peace Corps colleague says of him, “Chris devoted his career, and life, to improving relations between the Arabic/Islamic world and the West.” That he did and he died doing it, losing whatever career or life he might have had if he had not embarked on a futile errand to make the Muslims who killed him and paraded around his body like him. And like all those who have died over the years in the same cause, the effort was to no avail.

“It’s especially tragic that Chris Stevens died in Benghazi because it is a city that he helped to save,” Obama said, repeating the same lie that he used to drag America into his illegal war. Benghazi was not in any need of saving, it was the Americans who came to Benghazi, like Chris Stevens, who needed saving.

That is the terrible blind spot in our vision which, like Christopher Stevens, tells us that we need to save the Muslims who hate us, rather than showing us that we need to save ourselves.

    Violence only creates more violence…I knew from day one, that nothing would change with a Arab spring, in Libya.

    Non-Violence is the most powerful force in the universe.


    • MarkRich

      Yea as long as its the British Government you are opposing. Replace it with Muslim fanatical regimes run by terrorists non violence= Sodomy/decapitation/planes rammed into buildings/cars blown up/suicide bombers …. but hey WE ALL GET TO FEEL GOOD ABOUT OURSELVES BEFORE WE BURN ALIVE INTO A CRISPY CORPSE!!!

      • Rothschild

        Actually, pacifism would be more effective in stopping militant Muslim terrorists…the British, Germans (Nazis) were far more dangerous because they were quite sane, and intelligent…but still pacifism was successful against them.

        • Kufar Dawg

          "Pacifism was successful" against Naizs? LOL, do you live under a rock?

          • Rothschild

            What about WWII? – pacifist considerations


            …The high generals who served under Hitler admitted, during the Nuremberg trials and in their own extant writings, that they were confounded by nonviolent resistance. They knew how to crush enemy armies, but the subterfuge of nonviolence couldn't be fought in any efficient way…

          If you believe that I have nothing more to say- as you are obviously seriously misguided or have a brain disorder.

    So as Jimmah Carter said in 1979 about the Soviet Union that they lied to him!!!!! Golly how could they do that! Obummer goes to Eygpt and bows and apologizes in 2009 and he allows Iranians to die in the streets. Churchill was right of course and liberals as usual live in a fantasy land of "changing hearts and minds by cozing up to terrorists". It would be like inviting an escaped murder into your home and treating him lovingly and awaking to the sounds of screams as your children were viciously murdered. See its like the old story of the animal who lies to get your attention and love and then eats you (the crocodile for example) and asked why it did it it says its what I do- its my nature. Liberals and marxists and lovers of the unlovable evil in their midst are always surprised and yet go immediately into denial and state "Gosh we probably werent nice enough!" The Jihadists are laughing their as-es off and our clown diplomats are busy preparing all of us as fatted calves for the feast.

    Chris Stevens reminds me of the naive "outdoorsman" who went to live among the Grizzlies in Alaska, thinking if he fed them and was gentle, they would reciprocate in kind.

    When a reporter asked a Ranger why they killed him and
    devoured his body, he replied " 'cause that's what they do !"…

    Same situation here. Naivety and foolishness, over-riding common sense and self-preservation..

  • Martel Sobieskey

    A brilliant and insightful article revealing our government leaders penchant for supporting Islamofascism. “What goes around comes around.”

  • A. Keen Observer

    One day the US will finally have to come to the inevitable conclusion: Islam is incompatible with any free, innovative, moral society. We will have no choice but to either fight it or cut all contacts with Muslim countries. And we will have to deal with the Muslims here and it won't be easy.

  • jmz

    too bad it was only this dumbass and not more of these libturd morons. Im tired of morning our soldiers who die for aholes like this. Obaba, ths moron, the hillary, etc all think this is 1 big pr campaign. at best they are dupes with big hearts and small brains who think that a 'spoon full ' of western sugar and a few speeches will end something thats been going on over 1000 yrs. at wors they are willing accomplices who think they can use islamists like 'attack' dogs and weaken americas resolve until they can come to full power. and the worst part is we in the tea party/conservative community help as well by stupidly saying"its not all muslims"..YES IT IS! any man woman or child is a minni hitler with a bomb. nothing more. Muslims do not deserve respect, freedom or tolerance and they all should be wiped out. no more 'toleration' of my destruction. bomb the area..then sent in troops to clean the rest out. take all their gold, oil anything of value, burn the rest. make mecca a bbq rib joint and lets be done with this!


    This is a well written article, but this person (Stevens) was not 'making friends.'
    When are people going to GET that leftists are just detroyers no matter where they go.

  • Mark S. Devenow

    Granted this guy was an Arabist (a typical Arabist at that), someone who sympathized withterrorists and an appeaser. I shed no tears over the fact that he got his. It is still at best unseemly to be chortling over his murder. This entire piece is bad form. The contrast that SHOULD HAVE been put in sharpened relief is the State Department's perverse fixation with the idea that Arabs and Moslems are up to the task of modernizing and the delusion that if the US gets behind the right element there are friends to be made among them.

    This proves that Obama is an idiot and he has the blood of many innocents flowing between his nasty fingers .We were duped to elect such a ignorant . His Chickens have come home to roost .God Help America . As the Devil is in the White House.

  • Gabriel

    US should be energy independent , Oil, gas, coal, wind, atomic , all of them combined.

  • jtrolla

    There is a more profound lesson here: evil is all consuming. Stevens was innocent but naieve. His blood is on Obama's and Clinton's hands.

  • Drakken

    Ask your fellow 1.5 billion muslim that question, then get back to the rest of us infidels.

  • BcdErick

    A good essay. Thanks. As someone who has spent 23 years living in the southern Philippines (yes there are Muslims here — but common criminals are the real problem) I think what Stevens did was stupid. And his demise was entirely predictable. But we're all going to die some day. At least he went out while doing what he loved. That's the right way to go.

    One less Berkely pinhead. Sad though about the navy seals that lost their lives.

  • Fred Dawes

    This guy was raped to death by the muslim monkeys what do you think the muslim monkeys would do to us or the jews? Fill it in_________________________________________________

  • Lady_Dr.

    Another good hearted fool. I assume he was well meaning, but he bought into the lies of the left and now he lies in a grave – another victim of his own foolishness and the evil of the left and their BFF, the Moslems.

  • Ghostwriter

    After your vile statement above,DeShawn,I hesitate to call you a "person" or a "human being." No thinking person or rational human being could write the statement you did and expect not to be called out for it. Go back to the ooze from which you were spawned. There's no place for you here.

  • bellwriter

    Thank you for sharing this article. It's appalling that our government and media are keeping the public unaware based on politics. Freedom of the press is more important than ever, Qualify that. Journalists must be braver than ever and return to presenting both sides.
