The Money Quotes:

"The US prosecutor-general said on Wednesday that four people were being questioned after Tuesday's events.

Nine Coptic Egyptian-Americans were also put on an airport watch list. They are believed to have contributed to the production of the anti-Islam film that led to the embassy protest."

Holy moly! If Al Jazeera's reporting is correct, then the Administration is investigating the exercise of First Amendment Rights by Coptic Americans!

The Nanny-State/Police-State doesn’t recognize the Bill Of Rights.

It appears that Americans are being told accept Sharia law ( simply void the Bill of Rights) or else. This Obama Administration does not appear quite sure how to respond.

This is Al Jeering’s effort to give license to the terrorists to off the Coptic Christians.

That is exactly what Al Jazeera is repoting.

Making a film critical of Mohammed can get you on the TSA’s Watch List.

Wow.

The Bill Of Rights is contingent on not hurting muslims’ feelings.

And even here on FR, we’re so innured to the degradation of Freedom, nobody much comments on the fact that without due process and for exercising the fundamental right of free speech, you are in the government’s crosshairs.

Unbelievable.

I knew Freedom died a while ago (oh, about 2008), I just didn’t know how far we’d sunk.

The protests had more to do with a centuries old hatred for the Coptic Orthodox than for a fundamentalist’s homemade film.

September 11 on the “old calendar” = September 1, which is the beginning of the ecclesiastical new year. On that day the hymns and prayers give thanks for the blessings of the year that is past, and ask continued peace in the year that lies ahead. Many prayers ask for safety of “this city and every city” and especially for the Capital.

September 11 is also the anniversay of a major battle in Armenia in 1623 when the Moslem Turks were repelled.

But it’s easier to blame Terry Jones and the 1st Amendment.

This must be verified immediately. If we can be put on a watch list for expressing our views about a hate cult which has openly declared war on any non-Mud-Slime then, yes there is no first amendment and if there is no first amendment that only leaves us the second amendment (for a very limited time)

It is much easier for Zippy to pin the blame on someone than to fix the problem. So forget about fixing the problem, let’s focus assigning blame, ok?

I have been following somewhat and life for the Coptic Christians in Egypt has been getting steadily more difficult since this junk started.

There have been several instances of mass killings of Coptic Christians by islamofascist mobs and associate Coptic church destruction/burning.

Any one want to wager that more Coptic Christians are killed in the so called name Allah (nuts to him instead of peace be with him) by the weekend??

Has anyone speculated whether this whole mess was coordinated between Al-Q and Team B.O?
B.O. seem to snub Israel and ignore Intel about a week before all this happen.
After it happened he (and his media menions) use it to act like Romney has become unhinged...?
It also is a crisis, which they LOVE as much as life itself, and in their demented mind a reason to suspend free speech.
Just specualting about the Prezbo/enemy within.

I have wondered if much of what seems like Obama’s bumbling or mix messages is actually Obama signalling the people he needs to signal.
From his 57 states commment to “accidently” saying he is muslim to not putting his hand on his heart..etc

LA Times:

In the aftermath of the protests, the Egyptian prosecutor general put Morris Sadek, a Coptic Christian in the U.S. who authorities say promoted the film online, on a travel watch list, along with Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has backed the movie, saying it reveals “the destructive ideology of Islam.” Egyptian state media reported eight other Copts living abroad were also put on the list.

Well there you go! Al Jazeera was not clear about whose watch list they were on. Since the immediately preceding government in question was the U.S., one was led to believe it was the U.S. Government’s watch list.

Al Jazeera’s bad!

What about all the Coptic Churches burned and Coptic Christians killed, just since the fall of Mubarak? What are they? NOTHING?? Whereas a stupid movie that may (IMHO) not even realy have been made by the supposed Copts is serious business?

This is what happens when people vote in a Muzlim faggot Commie ID fraudster criminal doper for a president.
