State Dept Spends $70,000 Placating Pakistani Muslims Ahead of Friday Protests By Patrick Goodenough September 20, 2012
(CNSNews.com) Seven Pakistani television stations broadcast U.S. government public service messages Thursday featuring President Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denouncing a film clip insulting Mohammed.
State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland confirmed the ads were produced and paid for by the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad, at a cost of $70,000.
They aired on the same day as the army had to be called in to prevent violent protestors from breaching a diplomatic enclave where the embassy in located.
As Muslim Friday prayers approach a potentially volatile time Pakistan is bracing for the biggest anti-U.S. protests yet since the furor over the film clip available on YouTube erupted last week.
The government has declared a holiday Friday a Day of Love for the Prophet. All U.S. diplomatic missions in Pakistan will be closed, the embassy said on its Twitter feed, due to the national holiday.
The State Department in a new warning advised U.S. citizens to defer all non-essential travel to the country.
In the television ad Obama is seen speaking at the White House on Sept. 12, the day after the violence erupted: Since our founding, the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others.
Then a clip of Clinton, speaking alongside her Moroccan counterpart in Washington on Sept. 13, appears. She says: Let me state very clearly, and I hope it is obvious, that the United States government has absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and message. Americas commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation.

THIS IS SO SICKENING.
They spend our money showing our President and Sec of State apologizing for our freedom of speech. No one ever apologized to Jews and blacks for the Klansman’s publication. No one apologized for the hundreds of anti christian films produced here.
Why aren’t people outraged??
Our Constitution is the greatest document on running a country in humanity.
And those idiots go on foreign soil and bad mouth it???
It is no big deal at all, comparatively.
$70,000 wouldn’t pay a week’s interest on the Billions of new, additional foreign aid money Hellary is now demanding for Egypt, Libya and Pakistan.
I figure Huma has threatened to cut Hellary off (IYKWIM, AITYD)if she doesn’t come up with a big new jizya payment.
"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 . . . Risk of mental retardation increases with 400 percent (Proceedings of the National Academy of Science, 1978 Effect of inbreeding on IQ and mental retardation). Research shows that the IQ is 10-16 points lower in children born from blood related parents and that abilities related to social behavior and empathy develops slower in inbred babies (Indian National Science Academy, 1983 Consanguinity Effects on Intelligence Quotient and Neonatal Behaviours of nsari Muslim Children [pdf]). Such facts might make several pieces fall into place for many people . . . People with low intelligence (because of inbreeding) might also be easier to brainwash with fundamentalist Islam. "
"Research shows that the IQ is 10-16 points lower in children born from blood related parents" is that per generation?
BTW, I believe that the research shows that it is only a minority that practice consanguineous marriages; is it a coincidence that a minority of Muslims are Islamist nut cases? I don't think so. It is interesting that research shows that persons in Islamist countries with these inbred-caused disabilities are 90-percent of the suicide bombers.. Islamists consider them worthless and they are easy to fool -- and in many cases the suicide bombers are happy to die to get out of the misery they suffer day-to-day at the hands of the Islamists.
.. and these two pukes Obama and Hillary! denounced our heritage of free speech to make Pakistani Islamists feeeeeel better?!
