12 Sep The Apology Tour Didn’t Work!
The current administration has fostered an atmosphere among Muslims that portrays America as weak and apologetic. Four Americans are now dead and all we do is say we are sorry the Muslims got their feelings hurt! I get my feelings hurt every time I turn on the TV as Jesus Christ and Christians are relentlessly mocked, ridiculed and otherwise verbally attacked but I have yet to consider hurting anyone because of it. My God and savior does not need to be defended, just proclaimed as Lord of Lord and King of Kings.
The Israeli News below gives the details:
US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed in Libya Tuesday in an attack by Muslim extremists on the US Consulate in Benghazi.
The protesters said they were angry over a film they said ridiculed the founder of Islam, the Muslim Prophet Mohammed.The film was produced by expatriate members of Egypt’s Christian minority who are residents in the United States.
The mob set fire to the building during the attack, witnesses and officials said. Rocket-propelled grenades (RPGs) were fired at the consulate from a nearby farm.
The Libyan attack came in the wake of a protest in which demonstrators waving black banners stormed the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, tore down the American flag and torched it. At least 2,000 people stood at the foot of the walls surrounding the embassy as about 20 of the rioters scaled the walls.
Rioters also drew anti-American graffiti on the wall and demanded that the United States end its presence in Egypt. U.S. soldiers prevented the rioters from entering the Embassy compound. Witnesses said that Egyptian police at the scene did litttle to stop the rioters’ advance to the Embassy walls, which are usually cordoned off.
Following the attack, the U.S. released a statement saying: “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.”
