Yesterday, we marked the 11th anniversary of the September 11 Islamic attacks on our nation. Following those heinous attacks we promised to stay on the offense against Islamic terror and to weaken those nations which support their activity.
Eleven years later, we have a president who is building up new Islamist governments across the Middle East – ones that are backed by our biggest enemies; Al-Qaeda and Iran. Concurrently, he is throwing our troops into a meat grinder in Afghanistan as they are forced to fight a social work operation while Obama’s henchmen negotiate with the Taliban.
In a grimly apropos “celebration” of 9/11, radical Islamists stormed the American consulates in Egypt and Libya – two nations where Obama helped install Islamic governments; a pro-Al-Qaeda government in Libya and a Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt. In Egypt, the democracy-lovers tried to raise an Al-Qaeda flag on the embassy wall; in Libya, they killed the Ambassador and three other staffers. Yup, the flag that was flying at half-mast for 9/11 was replaced by an Al-Qaeda flag. They were upset about an American made film about Islam that failed to airbrush their violence. They responded by…demonstrating the point of the film.
So, do you feel safer now that Mubarak and Gadhafi are out of power? The Arab Spring is definitely something that Obama ‘did build.’ And he wants more. Obama is pushing Congress to approve a new aid package for the “Arab Spring governments,” including a $1 billion bailout of Egyptian debt. Now there is word that Senator Bob Corker (RINO-TN), who is slated to become the next chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee, is supportive of Obama’s Muslim Brotherhood bailout.
The most egregious thing is that instead of holding the “governments” and the people of those rat hole nations accountable, Obama’s diplomats in Cairo issued…..you guessed it… an apology!
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.
Also of note, while Obama was apologizing to the jihadis, he rejected Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s request for a meeting. Yet, he will be meeting with the new Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt. Know a man by his friends and enemies.
Several years ago, a very prominent man wrote a book touching on this theme. It’s called “No Apology.” It was written by Mitt Romney. Romney has been slow to respond, but he appears to be coming around. He must run TV ads hitting this in all the swing states.
Oh, and by the way, Obama has a double-digit lead on foreign policy. Talk about failure to communicate.
Mitt Romney’s rallying cry must be “let’s role; not let’s apologize.” It’s time for an American Spring.
