Libyan ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in attack on the United States embassy in Benghazi. The murders were the work of Islamic extremists.
On the same day, 9/11, three protestors climbed the wall of the embassy in Cairo, tore down the American flag, replacing it with a black flag with writing in Arabic touting, “there is no God but Allah, and Mohammed is His messenger”. The embassy is under protection of a well-armed guard.
In a statement about the attacks, Mitt Romney said, “I also believe the administration was wrong to stand by a statement sympathizing with those who had breached our embassy in Egypt, instead of condemning their actions. It’s never too early for the United States government to condemn attacks on Americans and to defend our values”. He’s making things up again.
Sarah Palin, the “half-governor of Alaska, put on Facebook comments such as “I guess he can’t see Libya or Egypt from his window.” She also made similar statements as those of Romney but in worse English.
Mr. Obama severely criticized the attacks and swore revenge.
The terrorists claim they launched the attacks over a recently released film titled “Innocence of Muslims”. The film was produced by 56 year old real estate developer Sam Bacile, and promoted by Terry Ford. The film was put on YouTube in Arabic as well as the original in English. It greatly criticizes what Bacile states as the “hypocrisies” of Islam. Ford said, “the film further reveals in a satirical fashion the life of Muhammad”. However, there are reports the Libyan attack was planned well ahead of time to coincide with 9/11.
Terry Ford is the Florida minister who made himself infamous by burning Qurans.
Islamic extremists and religious extremists such as Ford are to blame for these attacks. Two things about Ford. If you don’t believe in America which was founded on religious tolerance and freedom, than you are un-American and should leave the country. Secondly, if you are acting in a political fashion, your church should pay income tax.
