Skip to comments.Op-Ed: Those Self Destructive American Apologies
Posted on 09/20/2012 9:25:55 AM PDT by justlittleoleme
American embassies are burning across the Middle East and further afield. Jihadist Islam bites the hand which helped it during the revolutions. Embracing the idea that this mass murderous frenzy is due to a negligible film on Muhammad on the web is pathetic. It is never only about cartoons, videos, films, or statements.
It is self-destructive that Hillary Clinton rather than blasting as expected from a Foreign Minister after the loss of her ambassador, briefly labeled the moronic film as reprehensible, as if this implied violent consequences.
It is despicable that Obama, the appointed advocate of freedoms of the free world, did not seize the opportunity to explain that in the West freedom of speech extends to all topics. He could have mentioned that back in 1940 the Supreme Court acquitted a certain Newton Cantwell and his two sons accused of distributing offensive anti-Catholic literature that incited violent reactions
Obama will undergo the same fate. He will be blamed one day, much more severely because the danger is greater, assaulting the free world from every direction. He wanted to be the sorcerer's apprentice of the Arab revolutions, like Carter was of the Khomeinist Revolution
How can Obama still ignore it? It is Islam's promise to bend the world to subjugation. The experts' attempt to describe Al Qaeda as a declining organization is pathetic. It does not matter that Al Qaeda is scattered, divided, or impoverished.
Obama however does not want to acknowledge there is a jihadist danger, America pandered to the idea that it is a minor event, resulting from fanaticism and that an idiot who posts a film is to be blamed, the murderers therefore are somehow right.
