On 9/11, that most solemn of days for Americans, Islamists have attacked US embassies in Egypt and Libya.
It's all, supposedly, over some film depicting Mohammed/Islam in a bad light. Dhimmi American officials responded thusly:
The U.S. embassy had put out a statement earlier on Tuesday condemning "misguided individuals" who hurt the religious feelings of Muslims or followers of other religions.
"We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others," the U.S. embassy said in its statement.
Co-incidence it happened on 9/11? I don't think so.
“Obama! Obama! We are all Osama!” went one chant.
I don't think they get this freedom stuff and I don't think we get the fact they hate us.
At least one American killed in the Libya incident
A US official has been killed and another wounded in Libya as an armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam attacked the US consulate in Benghazi.Libya's deputy interior minister Wanis al Sharef said: "One American official was killed and another injured in the hand. The other staff members were evacuated and are safe and sound." He could not say if the dead man was a diplomat.
US Embassy says it talks about how "Islam is a WONDERFUL religion" Gag me with a spoon...no, make that several spoons.
