Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens and Information Officer Sean Smith were both targeted and killed in Benghazi, Libya yesterday by a mob of Muslim extremists because of a third-rate film about Prophet Muhammad no one has seen and certainly no US Government officials were involved in its making. This senseless act of terror against US Diplomats who were working so hard to help the Libyan people re-build their country after sacrificing so much to give them a free country is truly sickening. In one act of terror, the Islamic extremists have shown the world why the west must not and should not help Arabs and Muslims determine their fate. Our heart-feltÂ condolencesÂ to the families and colleagues of Ambassador Stevens and Mr. Smith.
Unfortunately, more Syrians will die now than before thanks to the illiterate few Muslim Brotherhood in control of the streets of Benghazi.
This incident is also a reminder that during both eras of President Carter and President Obama, Muslim extremists represented by the Mullahs of Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood of Libya stormed twoÂ US embassies. In-between those two far left Presidents, no other storming of a US Embassy ever happened under any of Obama‘s predecessors until Carter. What does this fact tell us about the a**-kissing foreign policy of PresidentÂ Obama? Is it a coincidence that both tragedies happened on the watch of Presidents who believe in endless dialogue to solve ALL problems?
What does this tragedy in Libya tells us about President Obama’s fast-track program to deploy Democracy in the Middle East before a civil society takes shape? Voting in a country where freedom is understood to mean it’s OK to “kill for revenge” is as infantile as it is to inaugurate the carcass of a ship and call it seaworthy. As far as I am concerned, Arab violent and despotic rulers or Drive-in Democracies are both as lethal in the sea of ignorance we see deploy before our eyes. The former perpetuates ignorance and the latter discounts it.
Whether the cause is about films in America or in the Netherlands or whether it is about cartoons inÂ DenmarkÂ or a book in Great Britain, Muslim extremists cannot be trusted to use reason.
