The Rape of Christopher Stevens

Posted By Raymond Ibrahim On September 17, 2012 @ 12:50 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage | 104 Comments

By obsessing over the 14-minute YouTube Muhammad video and its maker, the mainstream media ultimately exonerates the inexcusable and murderous response of the Islamic world.

There is only one question: did those who make this movie break any law?  No, they did not—and so the matter should end there, and the media should move on.  Focusing on those who did not break any American laws as a way to take the focus off those who murdered and initiated an act of war against the United States is not only misleading; it validates and gives Islamic blasphemy laws precedence over American freedoms.

Worse, even if making movies deemed offensive to Muslims was illegal in the U.S., the fact is, these embassy attacks, which “coincidentally” began on September 11, have nothing to do with the movie.  On September 10, I wrote an article titled “Jihadis Threaten to Burn U.S. Embassy in Cairo.” The demand that the U.S. release its imprisoned jihadis, including the Blind Sheikh, was behind these threats.  There was no mention of  “offensive movies.” My source, El Fagr, an Arabic website, reported all this on September 8.

In other words, several days before Muslims were angry about this movie they were threatening to burn down the U.S. embassy in Cairo.  I had even seen sporadic Arabic reports, from months back, talking about “extremist elements” threatening the embassy.  The movie is just a pretext—aided and abetted by the media, not to mention the Obama administration: Hillary Clinton called the video “disgusting and reprehensible,” wording which is more befitting those who murdered (and possibly raped, see below) Americans; the U.S. embassy itself apologized for those who “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims”; and the administration asked YouTube to remove the 14 minute trailer.

Thus the U.S. administration validates Islam’s blasphemy laws and, once again, aligns itself with America’s jihadi enemies.

Seventy-year-old, retiring Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ) put it well, when he suggested that the administration’s response to the embassy attacks was akin to a court asking a rape victim for an apology, saying: “It’s like the judge telling the woman who got raped, ‘You asked for it because of the way you dressed.’”

Nor is the rape entirely allegorical.  According to the Arabic website Tayyar, “the American ambassador in Libya [Christopher Stevens] was sexually raped  before being killed by the gunmen who stormed the embassy  building in Benghazi last night [Tuesday, September 11],  in protestation of a film insulting to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.”

Sexual abuse and degradation is a common tactic used against non-Muslims, especially women, as the repeatedly raped Lara Logan found.  For example, a report in Arabic media that just appeared discusses how Christian women—identified by wearing crosses around their necks or simply not wearing a hijab—are subject to sexual harassment, verbal abuse, and even threats of rape on the streets of Egypt.  This has only “become much more blatant and terrifying [after the embassy attacks]—and has even reached the point of threats of genocide and purging the land of Egypt of infidel Christians,” writes one female Christian in Egypt.

Nor are men immune from such rapes.  In fact, the photos of Ambassador Stevens—stripped of clothes, bloodied and tortured right before he was killed—very much resemble the photos of Gaddafi right before he was killed.  One U.S.-supported “freedom-fighter,” for example,  can be seen sodomizing Gadaffi with a rod as others dragged him along.

The al-Qaeda affiliated men who sexually abused and killed Gaddafi are the same men who sexually abused and killed America’s ambassador.  We were told that the late Libyan dictator was killed because he was an evil oppressor of his people.  Why was the American ambassador killed, who had hailed the revolution and was there helping to “build a better Libya”?

These are the questions the media and the Obama administration need to be answering—not obsessing over a second-rate YouTube video and questioning hard-won American freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment.  They should be explaining why it is that, after four years of appeasing the Islamic world in ways unprecedented, including by helping oust America’s longstanding allies like Egypt’s Mubarak to empower Islamists, all we have to show for it are dead and violated Americans, stormed embassies, burned U.S. flags, and greater anti-American sentiment than ever before.

Well the killing of Stevens worked.

I read just a little while ago,in Free Republic that our Government is thinking of giving the blind Sheik to Egypt.

For Health and Humanity reasons.

LOL

Go to jail if you have thoughts that are
likely to incite imminent lawless action, says Obama (soon I bet)

How are we to know what will incite the mentally deranged issue of centuries of Islamism's practice of consanguineous marriages?

Islamism: political Islam, sharia law. (fundamentalist Islam)

From an Internet source: "If there are two things that characterize Islamic culture, they are terrorism and inbreeding. The latest research shows that these two things might be closely connected . . . First cousin marriages have been the tradition in many Muslim families for innumerable generations. Such marriages increase the risk of negative mental and physical consequences. My article “Muslim inbreeding: Impacts on intelligence, sanity, health and society” details extensive research data . . . People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam. "

As I've said before you can't diffuse a violent mob by validating the reason for their anger. Which is what the administration is proudly claiming they have done. But the video wasn't the cause for the rioting.

ME protests: the hardline 'tele-Islamist' who brought anti-Islam film to Muslim world's attention

...but nobody had paid attention to its crude libels against the Prophet Mohammed until Mr Abdullah's show broadcast clips from it last weekend,... - Sept. 8-9

-----------------------------------------------

Egypt intelligence warns (on Sept 4th) of attacks on Israel, US embassies

Congress was warned about Libya last month

Libyan president: 'No doubt' attack 'preplanned' (Magariaf on Face the Nation)

"It was planned, definitely. It was planned by foreigners, by people who entered the country a few months ago. And they were planning this criminal act since their arrival," Magariaf said.

No demonstration before attack on US Consulate, source says

"The intelligence source said no protests were happening before the attackers struck at about 9:35 p.m. local time last Tuesday. The account backs up claims by a purported Libyan security guard who told McClatchy Newspapers late last week that the area was quiet before the attack."

-------------------------------------------------

(Ambassador) RICE: -- "was a result, a direct result of a heinous and offensive video that was widely disseminated, that the US government had nothing to do with,..."

U.S. denies premeditation report

"The Obama administration is flatly denying a blaring British newspaper report that the U.S. diplomats in Libya were killed as a result of a “continuing security breach,” and that “credible information” about possible attacks had been ignored. A U.S. official told POLITICO: “There's no intelligence indicating that the attack in Benghazi was premeditated.”"

No doubt about it. There is no intelligence in the 0bama administration.

“the American ambassador in Libya [Christopher Stevens] was sexually raped before being killed by the gunmen who stormed the embassy building in Benghazi last night [Tuesday, September 11], in protestation of a film insulting to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon him.”

This sentence forces together a combination of concepts my brain is literally unable to process:

I thought, “OK. I’m going to stop right here and try to figure this out. So. The first question you ask is the primary question that’s tied to every other question which stems from that statement: Exactly how out OF YOUR &*$^&%$ING MIND DO YOU HAVE TO BE TO ACCEPT THAT THIS SENTENCE SHOULD BE ABLE TO EXIST ON THE PLANET %^$$&ING EARTH?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?”

And my brain said, “No. Go do something else.”

So. I guess I’m just never going to understand this.

Are you referring to the cognitive dissonance of protesting the depiction of Mohammed as a murdering arse raper by murdering and arse raping someone? Or was it the little prayer to Mad Mo at the end that got to you?

Homosexuality is rampant in the Middle East. Every other man is a fag. No sex with a woman before marriage but they see nothing wrong anal sex with other men. When I was in Saudi Arabia years ago I saw a sheppard in the field plowing away on a sheep. Right out in the open. These people are degenerate animals. Don’t let anyone fool you.

With most of their children likely the result of rape too, marital or otherwise.

Barbarians issuing from barbarians, generation after generation, with consanguineous defects multiplying in each.

Nothing new. Read some of the accounts and memoirs of Napoleon’s campaign in Egypt. Many, many French soldiers and auxiliaries were abducted and raped. They were a lot more plainspoken about it than we are these days.

“Hillary Clinton called the video “disgusting and reprehensible,” wording which is more befitting those who murdered (and possibly raped, see below) Americans;”

Where is the apology for the disgusting and reprehensible MURDER and RAPE of our representatives?

Where is the apology for the attack of our sovereign embassy? Will Egypt pay for the damage?

Obama is complicit in these crimes. He is what is truly a disgusting and reprehensible head of state.

The Muslim worldview divides humanity into "Believers" and "Infidels." Read those as Ubermenschen and Untermenschen and the logic becomes clear.

That and all the rest of it.

But I actually hadn’t thought about your first point. I guess my sub-conscious had put that thought together and was about to present to my conscious mind when - for once - the filter between the two was actually doing its job and said “Nope. Absolutely not. We’re done here”

It’s like Bill Burr’s point about Hitler - it’s something to the effect of “I can understand Hitler. Really. There’s crazy people all over the planet. What I can’t understand is how it was that not one of the hundreds of sane people around him, turned to the guy early in his political career and said ‘Dude. You’re kind of a buzz kill. What with all the screaming about the Jews and sh!t...you need to calm the hell down. Seriously. I’m trying to score, here.’”

Ya. I made it to sura 13 before I walked outside and threw my copy of the Koran in a dumpster.

I didn’t finish it because I’d already read Mein Kampf.

And I bothered to take it outside because my garbage is too good for Allah.

A video causes some human debris to turn into wild animals? Sure, we’ll blame it on the video.

This is no LOL matter. If Obama wins re-election, the blind sheik, who engineered the 1993 attacks on the WTC will be pardoned.

I believe he will be sent to Egypt before the election.

Obama wants the Sheik to go free and will send him to Egypt before the election in a deal to keep the lunatic Muslim hoards out of our embassy there.

People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam. "

Maybe that's why the Ayatollahs continue to encourage it.
