Attacks on Tuesday against American missions in Cairo and Benghazi fit into a familiar pattern of Islamist intimidation and Western appeasement that goes back to the Salman Rushdie affair in 1989. The Obama administration's supine response to the murder of American diplomats increases the likelihood of further such assaults.
The Rushdie crisis suddenly erupted when the ruler of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, put a death edict on a novelist for having written a magical realist novel, The Satanic Verses, declaring that the book was "against Islam, the Prophet, and the Koran." That incident was then followed by a long list of similar assaults concerning a U.S. Supreme Court frieze in 1997, American evangelical leader Jerry Falwell in 2002, Newsweek in 2005, the Danish cartoons in 2006, Pope Benedict XVI also in 2006, Florida preacher Terry Jones in 2010, and U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan early in 2012. In each of these cases, the perceived insult to Islam led to acts of violence, sometimes against Westerners but more often among Muslims themselves.

Louie Gohmert nails it!
It’s their religion that tells them to fight against us.
So if we are going to fight this war, we have to fight a full scaled in your face “CULTURE” war.
Every time they act up, bomb their cities with scripture, bomb there cities with the gospel. “Overcome evil with good.” Give the people something different to believe in.
Stand up for free speech by exercising it. Pointing out how evil their leaders are for calling on Jews to be killed or for killing embassy workers simply because somewhere someone in a land that has free speech made a movie critical of Islam.
Stand up for religious expression by expressing it. Drop gospels and pamplets from the air over their cities giving them something different than Islam. Drop voice cards that quote Jesus.
The jihadists are making their move now, just in case their enabler is gone from the White Mosque around the end of the year.
And we understood this when we operated Radio Free Europe against the Communists.
We should also eliminate Islamic immigration to the US though. Eventually they will outbreed us and VOTE their barbarism on the US if we don’t.
The Gaddafi and Mubarak regimes fell a short while ago and the US ambassador to Lybia has now been murdered. Zer0 apologizes.
‘sgonna git intrestin’ folks.
The wife and I saw “2016” last night an it explains why the obama administration rather than condemning the attacks on our consulates and embassies he apologized to the attackers and killers. God forbid he gets a second term.
I strongly disagree: since this bunch of freaks has been at war with us since the 70's at the very least, the only way to stop this cycle is deport every Muslim in this country and nuke their countries. Time to treat it like a war!
Both are Traitor Losers who hate America!
Jimmy Carter's presidency was doomed by the Iranian hostage crisis after the US embassy in Tehran was stormed by Islamist extremists following the Iranian revolution.
A year after the 52 Americans were taken hostage, Carter lost the 1980 election. The hostages were released just as President Ronald Reagan, who defeated Carter, was sworn in.
As Clint noted, the Empty Chair:
Thanks to RushIsMyTeddyBear and Focault's Pendulum and for finding these morphing graphic art realities!
Since the ‘70’s? These misanthropic apes have been at war with the Christian west since roughly 600 AD! Most of what is now the ‘Islamic world’ was Christian territory conquered by Mohammed or the early Rashidun or Umayyad Caliphates.
Never forget, Egypt was Christian and spoke Egyptian and Greek (or Coptic) before the Islamic conquest. Turkey was the heart of the Byzantine Christian empire before the Islamic conquest. (Now they speak Arabic - Egyptian is a dead language). And Europeans first fought Muslims on the plains of Spain and France 400 years before the First Crusade, (which was originally in response to a plea for help from the rump Byzantine Empire, which was under yet another assault from Islamic hordes.)
Either way, it’s time this country realized that, whether we want it or no, they have declared war on us and aren’t going to go away till they are beaten severely.
