    Security has been tightened around the US Embassy in Manila following the killing of an American diplomat in a shocking attack by protesters in Libya. The Manila Police District has set up concrete barriers at the embassy's main gate and deployed additional personnel to guard the embassy premises, radio dzBB's Carlo Mateo reported. Chief Inspector Erwin Margarejo, MPD spokesman, was quoted in the report as saying that they will also deploy personnel to secure the embassy premises at night. “The U.S. Embassy appreciates the strong cooperation and support that we receive from the Philippine National Police and security authorities in...

    I'm not in DC, but here's an idea that I had that I wanted to throw out. Coptic Egyptians have been killed in huge numbers by Muslim terrorists over the last few years, and it's been getting worse. They're getting killed by their own countrymen--yet the outrage is over a YouTube video?? Are you kidding me? Obama is clearly going to do nothing. We all know what his foreign policy is. If I was in DC, which I am not or otherwise I'd be doing this already, I'd be demonstrating--peacefully of course--against violence towards Coptic Egyptians in front of their...

    Yemeni police Thursday shot dead four protesters and wounded 34 others when they opened fire on a crowd attempting to storm the US embassy in Sana'a to protest a film mocking Islam, a security official said. The White House, meanwhile, said it was doing everything it could to protect its diplomats in Yemen, where witnesses reported that roads leading to embassy were closed down as the area was calm later in the evening. "Four people were killed and 34 others were wounded in the clashes that lasted from morning until late in the evening" in the area around the U.S....

    U.S. Marines defending the American embassy in Egypt were not permitted by the State Department to carry live ammunition, limiting their ability to respond to attacks like those this week on the U.S. consulate in Cairo. Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson “did not permit U.S. Marine guards to carry live ammunition,” according to multiple reports on U.S. Marine Corps blogs spotted by Nightwatch. “She neutralized any U.S. military capability that was dedicated to preserve her life and protect the US Embassy.” If true, the reports indicate that Patterson shirked her obligation to protect U.S. interests, Nightwatch states.

    The September 11 murder of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens, a mob's sacking of the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, and the attack on the U.S. embassy in Cairo demonstrate the war against terrorism is far from over. Disturbingly, 11 years after al Qaida's devastating attack on New York and Washington, neither the White House nor the State Department appears to recognize what the fight is about. As protests erupted outside the U.S. embassy in Cairo, embassy public affairs officer Larry Schwartz tweeted — and then re-tweeted — a condemnation of the controversial film which initial reports suggested motivated the rioters. "We...

  • Karzai, Muslim Brotherhood Condemn Anti-Islam Movie (Not Attacks)

    09/12/2012 10:47:44 PM PDT · by aquila48 · 7 replies
    Afghan President Hamid Karzai and Egypt's ruling Muslim Brotherhood Wednesday angrily denounced a U.S.-produced film harshly critical of the Prophet Muhammad, raising fears that a new wave of violent protests will follow Tuesday's attacks on U.S. diplomatic installations in Cairo and Benghazi, Libya. Shortly after news emerged that the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other American diplomats were killed in Benghazi, the Afghan presidential palace released a statement condemning the "desecrating act" by the makers of the film, saying that its release "stoked interfaith enmity and confrontation, and badly impacted the peaceful coexistence between human beings."

    The Venice Film Festival awarded a special jury prize Saturday to “Paradise: Faith.” The film is part of a trilogy; Strand Releasing has acquired the U.S. rights and plans to release it early next year. Catholic League president Bill Donohue comments as follows: One of the hallmarks of cultural charlatans is the propensity to insult Christians, especially Catholics, and then declare their offense creative. If anyone wants to know why a special jury prize was given to “Paradise: Faith,” let me spare you the need to read about it: it won because it shows a devout Catholic woman masturbating with...

    Disclaimer: before beginning, let us remember the families of the deceased, and keep them in our prayers. Most of us woke up this morning and saw or heard the news: US Embassy attacked. Oh, OK, this must be follow-up on Cairo, right? No. It turns out that there was an attack in Libya, as well. And in this attack, the mob did not just shout pro-bin Laden slogans and wave black flags. They attacked and burned the embassy to the ground; there were four Americans killed; and one of the dead was the consul / ambassador, J. Christopher Stevens (RIP)....

    In an unfortunate fatal accident on Tuesday, a Libyan guard was reportedly crushed to death by the entrance gate of the US embassy in the Libyan capital, Tripoli. The incident occurred when the gate lethally dislodged from its pathway and fell on the guard. The embassy, which is located in Walie Al-Ahed road in the Sidi Slim area, has a large, heavy gate that bars the entrance and is manned by guards for security measures. The gate is intended to be controlled mechanically, however due to damages allegedly sustained by the mechanism, the gate has to be manually opened and...

    US President Barack Obama has vowed to bring to justice those who killed the US ambassador to Libya during protests against a film that mocks Islam. But he told reporters that the attack on the American consulate in Benghazi would not break the bonds between the US and the new Libyan government. His election rival Mitt Romney criticised his handling of the crisis. Ambassador J Christopher Stevens reportedly died of smoke inhalation after a crowd stormed the consulate. Three other Americans were also killed and the consulate set ablaze, in what the White House described as a "complex" attack. Unconfirmed...

    The killings of the US ambassador to Libya and three other American diplomats in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi Tuesday underscore how anti-authoritarian revolutions across the Arab world have unleashed extremist Islamist forces violently opposed to America and its ideals. “The big question for the United States, and it’s only been made more urgent by these events, is how to adjust to a world where [moderate Muslim] governments have paved the way for more extremist elements to wield their influence,” says Patrick Clawson, director of research at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy in Washington. “It’s...

    On 9-11-12, the U.S. Embassy in Libya was attacked by a mom of Muslims. They scaled the walls, burned the U.S. flag, and used military arms and explosives to attack and murder the U.S. Ambassador to Libya. President Obama has circled the globe, bowing, scraping and apologizing for the United States on any number of topics. Obama re-tasked NASA, ending the space shuttle program, and instituting an Islamic-outreach program. Obama has appointed a cadre of radical, left-wing, socialists, communists, athiests, homosexuals, and other radicals to Czar positions across the board. Ignoring the congress repeatedly, ruling by edict and executive order,...
