Egyptian Islamists stormed the American Embassy compound on 9/11, destroying the American flag, draping the black fabric of al Qaeda over the walls shouting “death to America!”
The Obama State Department responded by apologizing, claiming this was actually a good thing. We brought democracy to Egypt, they explained, and now Muslims have a right to express their free speech through protest.
Two weeks later, Coptic Christians in Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula are now fleeing their homes after death threats from Islamists have gone unanswered by the governing authority. Since the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak, supported enthusiastically by President Barack Obama, they have been murdered, expelled, their children kidnapped, with reports from the Arab press even of crucifixions.
After months of pleading from American Copts for intervention, the Obama Administration responded to them, at least symbolically, by blaming the murder of the American ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens, on an American Coptic Christian film maker. The Obama Justice Department bristled at the offense to Islam. Their surrogates went hard after “Sam Bacile,” taking him into custody in a very public way…revealing his Egyptian name and location for the mere suspicion that he broke his parole by possibly using the internet and certainly an assumed name. He languishes now in a California prison with a significant Muslim population eager to exact revenge.
While the Obama Administration is still not sure what happened that killed three Americans in Libya, and will not allow FBI agents into Benghazi to investigate weeks later, they were certain Sam Bacile’s silly South Park-like trailer on Mohammed was the cause of it.
“The future does not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” declared the President of the United States to the United Nations. Evidently not. The Coptic Christian Sam Bacile is dangerously, securely incarcerated while the Islamist murderers of the U.S. Ambassador run free.
It isn’t just the Copts who fear for their lives right now in Egypt. Under past president, Hosni Mubarak, who the Obama Administration drove out with a vengeance, Egyptian women enjoyed rights never afforded in Islam. The statutes were named after Mubarak’s first lady and known as “Suzanne’s laws.” They allowed, among other things, women whose husbands had left them and were free to remarry to be free themselves to get a divorce. In addition it allowed those women to maintain custody of their children until fifteen and keep the family home while raising those children.
Now the new Islamist movement in Egypt wants to turn that law and others back, rightfully claiming they are not compatible with Sharia Law. At stake is the reinstatement of female circumcision, wife beating, honor killings and child brides.
A recent cartoon in an Egyptian newspaper shows an old bridegroom with a little girl dressed like a bride, clutching her teddy bear. “Okay, I’ll take you to the amusement park but only after we’ve consummated our marriage,” he says.
“Egyptian Women Fear Regression on Rights,” blares the headline from the Financial Times. And yet the Obama State Department led by consummate feminist, Hillary Rodham Clinton, assisted by Muslim Brotherhood born and bred Huma Abedin, turns a deaf ear to this frightening threat to Egyptian women.
“Speaking at a meeting of the Group of 8 Nations in New York,” reported the New York Times, Hillary Clinton “said on Friday that the world needed to do more to support the governments that have emerged from the Arab Spring uprisings, including those in Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia.”
The Obama State Department’s response to this poison of a spring that killed one of their very own and threatens the lives of Egyptian women? A proposal to send 450 million dollars of one billion in aid to assist the new Egyptian Brotherhood government led by Islamist Mohamed Morsi.
“Obama, Obama! We are all Osama’s!” cried the protestors at the Egyptian Embassy as the brother of al Qaeda strategist, Ayman al-Zawahiri watched on from the crowd.
This may not be a transfer of American weapons as in Fast and Furious, but make no mistake, American dollars will be spent to shed American blood in Egypt and here at home.
And here at home President Obama has his own “kill” list. Like a deadly reality show, he chooses a victim and drones come on the screen to carry out the “kill.” He doesn’t seem to care much for who dies in all of this, including his own ambassador. He holds the lives of 3000 Americans killed on 9/11 and the subsequent sacrifice of American military lives cheaply…the blood of American soldiers slaughtered by Afghan soldiers with no sense of urgency, the lives of thirteen American soldiers slain by a traitor American Islamist at Ft. Hood, an issue of “workplace violence.” All of those lives are seemingly in his own words a mere “bump in the road” on his way to achieving the new understanding with Islam he so carefully laid out in his first major presidential speech delivered to the Muslim world, heavily attended by the Muslim Brotherhood, in Cairo, Egypt.
Obama may not be wielding the death sword, but he is exhibiting a consummate disregard for life that rivals the Brotherhood who declare they “love death more than we love life!” We have every right to suspect a dangerous connection.
