Egypt’s 9/11 Remembrace


Pages: 1 2

Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate who won Egypt’s presidential election, has received an invitation by the Obama administration to meet with Obama on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York later this month.  But apparently Obama has no time to meet with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu when the leader of the only true democracy and our closest ally in the Middle East also visits the United States for the General Assembly session.

Just how are things going these days as the Egyptian revolution against the Mubarak regime has morphed into the new Muslim Brotherhood-dominated Islamist regime?  The Obama administration does not seem concerned, but there is indeed great cause for grave concern.

For example, Egyptian protesters just scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo and displayed their own version of September 11th remembrance by pulling down the American flag, tearing it up and burning the remains. They were apparently upset over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad. Egypt’s prestigious Al-Azhar mosque and seat of Sunni learning condemned the film, but was silent on the violence by the Islamist protesters.

Morsi has also been silent about the attack, which follows reports last month that Muslim Brotherhood protesters “crucified those opposing Egyptian President Muhammad Morsi naked on trees in front of the presidential palace while abusing others.”  A member of Al-Azhar’s fatwa committee said that fighting participants in anti-Muslim Brotherhood demonstrations is a religious obligation.

The Obama administration is in complete denial that the much hyped Arab Spring is turning into an Islamist winter.  Incredibly, after the 9/11 attack on our embassy, Obama’s State Department apologized for any hurt to the protesters’ religious sensibilities rather than condemn the attack itself. The embassy statement affirmed:

“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…We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

Nobody is forcing the Islamist hooligans in Egypt to view a film produced in the United States, but apparently they get a free pass to issue their movie review by storming our embassy.

The film, by the way, was reportedly produced by U.S.-based Coptic Christian Egyptians, who are concerned about church burnings, killings and persecution of their fellow Christians in Egypt at the hands of Islamists. Apparently, the Coptic Christians cannot exercise their right of free speech in the United States to express their views on a religion that has been used to justify far worse physical attacks on Egyptian Christians without incurring the wrath of the Islamists and the condemnation of the Obama State Department.

At the same time, according to a report in the London-based daily Al-Hayat, Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood – the parent of Hamas – is welcoming its rocket-launching terrorist poster child home to Egypt. It has agreed to open an office for its terrorist offshoot in eastern Cairo and establish a joint committee with Hamas to discuss issues of “security” along the Gaza-Egypt border and to share intelligence. That is like a fire department made up of veteran arsonists partnering with other arsonists on a fire prevention program.  Yet there has been no reaction reported from the Obama administration.

Hamas’s Gaza Prime Minister Ismail Haniyeh, who is traveling to Egypt this week for high level meetings, will be part of the joint committee along with Ahmad Ja’abari, commander of the Al-Qassam Brigades (Hamas’s military wing).

The Egyptian Muslim Brotherhood’s Hamas guest and joint “security” committee member Haniyeh has made it very clear how he views security.  Eliminate the Jewish state altogether from the Jordan River to the Mediterranean Sea.

Marking the twenty-fourth anniversary of Hamas’s founding last December, the Hamas Gaza Prime Minister declared:

“The armed resistance and the armed struggle are the path and the strategic choice for liberating the Palestinian land, from the [Mediterranean] sea to the [Jordan] river, and for the expulsion of the invaders and usurpers [Israel]… We won’t relinquish one inch of the land of Palestine.”

Hamas, Haniyeh vowed, will “lead Intifada after Intifada until we liberate Palestine – all of Palestine, Allah willing. Allah Akbar and praise Allah.”

When Haniyeh visited Cairo in February of this year he told a wildly cheering crowd from the pulpit of the Al-Azhar Mosque that “We will never ever ever recognize Israel!”

    In physics, the one who gets the general idea about ‘cause and effect’ is the one who gets it backwards. Back up and you find the unspoken injunction that prevents inductees from leaving the group at the threat of death. This prohibition is the root of their ‘fervour’ and 'passion.'

  • becky

    I did not see where the Obama Admin condemns the offenders in your article. Did I miss something?
    The state dept did apologize, but they should be apologizing to Americans for it happening at all. And this is the way to peaceful negotiations? Boy am I confused……….We really need to wake up…….

  • Alvaro

    "We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."

    At first glance it looked like a statement from the Muslim Brotherhood. But then I saw it was a statement from their "allies" in the US embassy. This was also the official US mantra against little Denmark during the caricature crisis.

    They need to realize that these Muslims are people who are very poor at regulating their own emotions, and that it is their problem and not ours.

    Now stop crawling and grow a pair.

      God knows that they mock the things that I value with aplomb every day. When does Hillary speak up for my feelings? When do I get to riot?

    • Sunbeam

      I am appalled that when anything happened we are to be blamed for everything. Free speech has been our culture for a very long time. They're finding fault with our free speech now so they can silence us in order to fulfill their agenda and that is to conquer the whole world. This is the motive behind.

  • truebearing

    Those who appease evil are evil. Obama has completely abandoned his role as the Commander-In-Chief, therefore the nation as well. His response to this attack, combined with his recent offer of a billion dollars to Egypt for the purchase of submarines, and his highly offensive refusal to meet Netanyahu, has made clear just how hostile Obama is to israel and the United States itself. This can't get much more serious. Through his evil actions, and equally evil inaction, Obama is sending the world directly into a nuclear war.

    Obama isn't stupid, so the only other explanation is that he is evil. This is Obama's Grave New World. May God help us remove this scourge from power.

    "Even as individuals are called to moral account, the nations will also be judged. The nation of Israel will be vindicated, and its suffering at the hands of other nations redressed. The righteous among the nations will be accounted to Israel, and will ascend God's sacred mountain to form the messianic kingdom of G-d. Some traditions link the day to the coming of the Messiah."

    " Egypt: (Mitzrayim). "Ten measures of witchcraft were given to the world; nine measures went to Egypt: (Kid 49b)
    The land of Egupt has been associated with mystery and the occult since earliest Jewish history, with tradition viewing it as a breeding ground for witchcraft. The biblical contest between Moses and Pharaoh's scorcerers (Ex. 7:10-13) sets the tone for all subsequent Jewish attitudes toward Egypt. Two of the most famous Jewish alchemists, Maria Hebrea and Moses of Alexandria hail from there. The Sages characterize Egypt as the "capital of witchcraft" (Gen. R. 86:5)

    Obama shows his Muslim hand more and more clearly but many Americans are still blind to it. Romney must feature this in his campaign instead of sticking to the one-note economy aspect which half the great unwashed mass will never understand.

      I marveled at this comment. But in a way it's true.

  • PAthena

    Is it possible that President Barack Obama is himself a member of the Muslim Brotherhood?

  • kasandra

    Yes, I noticed that as part of its effort to "condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions [and] firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others” the Obama administration called on Obama's Super Pac to return the $1,000,000 it got from Bill Maher, who made the film Religulous, which was highly insulting to the "religious beliefs of others," mostly Christians.

    • kasandra

      BTW, it did not ask the Super PAC to return the money. I was being facitious.

      • Kufar Dawg

        Bill Maher seems to lose his balls when it comes to criticising islam, like most of the MSM.

  • JoJoJams

    Obama also needs to make some kind of comment like, "bitter clingers, clinging to their god and guns, with antipathy for "others" not like them." ~ Or maybe he only reserves that kind of condemnation for the Christian Americans he so denigrated with that comment. Does that shoe not fit these pious muslims even more aptly?
    On the anniversary of 9/11, these muslims purposely chose to riot (after being lead to, I'm sure) to further humiliate America as they have with their "victory mosque", and to take our mind of the atrocity commited on 9/11 by their co-religionists, attempting to take over OUR right to mourn and claim victomhood, by them now being able to claim victimhood on OUR 9/11!! And our leaders are abetting them!!
    You can't make this stuff up! insanity….

    "Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man sows, that shall he also reap" Galatians 6:7
    The US administration sows a pure evil which is MB and from now it's time to reap a double evil, or did you think that MB will be grateful for letting and helping them reigning Egypt?
    So l will say again with Jotham "rejoice in (MB). and let them also rejoice in you: but if not, let fire come out from MB and devour the (US administration), and let fire come from the US administration and devour MB " Judges 9:8-15

    There is nothing wrong with making a video that tells the TRUTH of Islam. We need more of that. We are free to speak and have our opinions. I agree with the video. It tells THE TRUTH. We can't be bullied into fear so that we are afraid to produce the TRUTH. That is bowing to Islam. We may as well all put on a burqua and get ready for the men to pour acid on us and cut off our noses, ears, and lips, and beat us and rape us and then kill us because we dishonored someone because they raped us. The attacks in Libya and Egypt were acts of war & were not because of this movie. They were a coordinated attack by Islamists on 9/11 anniversary. Only our Judeo-Christian-Catholic-hating Obama Administration & liberal media would try to spin it to blame an American preacher in Florida for exercising his right to free speech and free thought of opinion. The liberals are trying to silence anyone who dares to tell the truth about the evils of Islam. They had the audacity to issue an apology to the Islamic barbarian murdering terrorists & blame our own American citizen rather than blaming the Islamic terrorists for acting out the evil dictated in the Qu'aran.

Their apology said we/America (not me) are sorry for "hurting the religious feelings of Muslims". Are you kidding me? The Obama liberals don't care if they hurt Catholics or Judeo-Christians feelings.

  • Reese

    (continued) or Jews feelings. They insult, malign, & denigrate us every day in the liberal media, liberal movies, liberal TV, liberal teachers / schools / universities / professors. Obama & his Admin make fun of us & call us bitter, Bible-clinging, gun-toting, ignorant, etc. Obama liberals force Catholics to violate their conscience and their religious tenants to perform and pay for abortions, yet they don't want to hurt Islam's feelings?? They bash Israel & treat Netanyahu like trash. They don't care if they hurt our feelings. The Obama Administration are a bunch of traitors. look at the pictures and read about the TRUTH of Islam here and see if you will not blame who should be blamed. thereligionofpeace com; atlasshrugs com; frontpagemag com. Obama said in his book that he would stand with the Muslims if things get ugly. He always has and he always will

      re: "Obama said in his book that he would stand with the Muslims if things get ugly."

      Quote? Source? Page?

      • JoJoJams

        In “Audacity of Hope” he writes: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.” The quote comes from page 261 of the paperback edition of “The Audacity of Hope.

    Gee,and most Muslims wonder why we in America have such a negative image of their religion? Could it be what happened yesterday and the terrorist acts preceding it? Could that be the reason?

    Strange how the American Embassy made and apologetic statement before the demonstration
    makes one think they knew in advance and were choriographing the entire event with their Muslim
    Brotherhood adjutants within the Obama Administration. In Libya Jihadists murder the American
    Ambassador and three other Americans. This story of and inflammatory film is a hoax and pure
    make believe to cover the humiliating events absent of any spontaneity which further advances
    the possability Obama knew in advance or is the most purely idiotic bumbler in Americn history.
    Hillary is so fast to claim the involvement of only a rabid small group and well hey, isn't that
    worn thin, she like Bill creates her own truth and sticks to it and ignores what is real. We vote
    the morons out in November and try to live through the shame of the last four years while trying
    to find out where they siphoned off a trillion or more dollars into leftist payoffs………….William

      And just what statement would YOU issue under similar circumstances, in a foreign hostile land, fearing an angry Islamist mob?

      • WilliamJamesWard

        Nothing, absolutely nothing. I would not be in a foreign hostile land with angry Islamist mobs.
        I would not if on duty as and Ambassador disarm my Marines, I would give no credence
        to the pretext of any film made by anyone. If left up to me this would not have happened,
        Obama should have met with Netanyahu who had the heads up of what was about to
        happen and he may have been avoiding what he knowingly wished to keep at a distance.
        The Ambassador's blood is on Obama's anemic policies and Clintons disingenuous dodge.

    It would appear that the writer is confused as to which nation, Israel or Egypt, really is America's "closest ally in the MIddle East.":

    "Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood’s candidate who won Egypt’s presidential election, has received an invitation by the Obama administration to meet with Obama on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York later this month.

      Nice try, Anon but Israel shares our democratic values. Egypt is in the grip of the Muslim Brotherhood whcih hates our values. The crazies running Iran want to destroy Israel first (the Little Stan) and then go after us (the Big Satan).
