The question is not how the story was spun after the event. The question is why requests for additional security were ignored prior to the event. One squad of Marines deployed on time as requested and the attack at Benghazi would have resulted in a resounding victory rather than a squalid embarrassment for O’Blaima. Instead, men died and O’Blaima chose to lie. In a world where Malala Yousufzai can suffer being shot by taliban gunmen for her advocacy of education for girls, we’d like to remind our future President of the United States, Mitt Romney, of the intransigent hate his new (and improved) State Department will be confronting. Once upon a time, for an American President, brokering peace between Israel and Palestine was considered the epitome of middle eastern foreign policy. Now that the US has, by default, armed the entire region, rhetoric has similarly become weaponized:
Salam Abd Al-Qawl– “Our hatred of the Jews is based upon our faith. The Koran tells us to hate them, not to love them.”
Muhammad Hussein Yaaqub– “If the Jews left Palestine to us, would we start loving them? Of course not. We will never love them. Absolutely not. Your belief regarding the Jews should be, first, that they are infidels, and second, that they are enemies. They are enemies not because they occupied Palestine. They would have been enemies even if they did not occupy a thing.”
Muhammad Al-Muraikhi– ” We will treat the Jews as our enemies even if they return Palestine to us because they are infidels.”
Wael Al-Zarad– “In short, these are the Jews. As muslims, our blood vengeance against them will only subside with their annihilation, allah willing, because they tried to kill the prophet several times.”
Mas’oud Anwar– “The worst enemies of the muslims, after satan, are the Jews. Who said this? Allah did.”
Worth watching in its entirety…
Link below to a video from Memri TV in which the story of Wafa Idris is told to a group of children from central casting by an actor fully absorbed in his role as the wise, compassionate, and fatherly Sheik. Wafa Idris was a Palestinian medical student who chose to end her life in Jerusalem as history’s first female suicide bomber on January 27th, 2002. She broke new ground, so to speak. The script is not the type which might examine how a young woman allowed herself to be destroyed by a culture of death, an agenda of hate, manipulative fanatics, and general social lunacy. No, the script constructs a warm myth, not around her act of murder, but around her glorious martyrdom. “Allah willing, we will all become like Wafa Idris.” Ah, dear children, there will be no more birthdays for Wafa Idris. Wafa Idris is dead. Do you really want to become dead like Wafa Idris? On the other hand, if every Palestinian became like Wafa Idris, a very large portion of the problem would blow away.
Once more…all together…
The war against terror is NOT a war against Islam.
It is a war against terror.
The war will end when terror ends.
To you, the innocent victims of radical clerics…reject jihad, reject hate, worship God in peace, love your family, and enjoy a long, prosperous life.
