Of course this all stems from the Islamic law, or whatever, that says no one can illustrate their prophet but the Eyptian courts passed this ruling
and shame on them for doing it, but then again Egypt is in a major crisis right now and religious extremists are currently in power and doing all that
they can to completely take over Gov't.
But the saddest part of this whole story is the fact there was no rioting protests in Egypt that day over a movie. There were rioting protests in
Egypt that day over the US imprisonment of a Blind Cleric. The movie was just more fuel to the fire.
How to send Egypt a message
Wednesday, September 12, 2012
The image of a black Al Qaeda flag flying above the United States Embassy in Cairo on Sept. 11 shocked Americans. It should have shaken the Egyptian
Government as well. Egypt receives $1.5 billion annually from the U.S., and Washington is about to forgive $1 billion in the ailing state’s debt.
But Egypt’s government is charting a different course. Rather than denouncing the egregious violation of U.S. sovereignty, Egypt’s ruling party,
the Muslim Brotherhood, is doubling down. This Friday, the Brotherhood is slated to hold a mass demonstration just two blocks from U.S. compound in
America's #1 terrorist organization is alive and well in the Middle Eastern nations and they are not shy about planting their flag everywhere they go.
Last time I saw their flag planted was after they and NATO took Libya. I suspect we'll be seeing them pop up in Syria soon, if not already.
In Egypt and the U.S., the attack is widely being attributed to an obscure anti-Islamic movie. But in fact, Al Gamaa Al Islamiyya, a
U.S.-designated terrorist organization, announced weeks ago that it would protest in front of the U.S. Embassy on 9/11 to demand the release of Sheikh
Omar Abdel Rahman, the blind cleric mastermind of the first World Trade Center Bombing in 1993.
No doubt, the appearance of the video led to a spike in support for the Gamaa demonstration, notably among Salafists and Egypt’s infamously
drugged-up soccer fans known as “Ultras.”
CNN was on the scene in Egypt reporting the protests were over the anti Islamic movie when they knew full well it was all about a Blind Cleric. The
White House and MSM were reporting and pushing the agenda of a poorly edited/dubbed YouTube clip caused protesting riots on US embassy's in Libya and
Egypt. Above the article reports that the Egyptian protest was advertised weeks in advance so chances are very good that someone in US Gov't was aware
of it yet the White House allowed and played on the lie that the protests were about the movie and these attacks completely blind sided them..
Libya there was no protest at all. At best the terrorist used a small group of youths who happened to be in the area to chant about the film as a
distraction before the attack.
So the US and western MSM pushed the YouTube clip agenda and from that sparked actual rioting protests all across the Middle East. Their lie had a
major impact and caused a tremendous amount of damage. People died, people were maimed and injured, property was damaged, and America just gave
extremists one more tool to further support and create terrorism. Simply effin' amazing our Gov't who is supposed to protect our National Security
continues to endanger lives of Americans, her allies, and the entire population of the Middle East. Egypt is probably going to be on the receiving end
of US drone strikes very soon.
But enough about how terrible the US Gov't is, lets look at Egypt's.
So while the Brotherhood may not have planned the attack, the organization quickly embraced it, exploiting the crime to foment sectarian
tensions and burnish its anti-American populist credentials. To wit, in its first official account of events in Arabic, the Brotherhood claimed that
the anti-Islamic movie had been funded by Coptic Christians in America and praised Egyptians for “rising up for the victory of the Prophet.”
Amazing to anyone that the US still sends billions a year to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood took power? I find it rather curious. I also find it
amazing the brotherhood knew it was Coptic Christians from the start. I'm sure we all remember the watching the MSM slowly unravel who was behind the
film but the brotherhood knew from day 1. Damn they're good.
A day later, the Muslim Brotherhood’s Egyptian president Mohammed Morsi had not offered an apology to the U.S. Instead, according to the
Egyptian daily Al Ahram, Morsi directed the Egyptian Embassy in Washington to take legal action against the film’s producers.
Btw, Morsi, the new Muslim Brotherhood President of Egypt recently just gave himself rule over Egypt which I find ironic since just last year the
people of Egypt threw out the American dictator but Morsi somehow thinks he's gonna get away with this.. but I digress. My whole point is this, lets
not take the easy road and blame Islam because that's just lazy. The real blame is on both the US Gov't and the Egyptian Gov't and the MSM outlets
that were in on the lie.
This whole event is a great example of mass manipulation/mind control, on a global scale no less, and this obviously isn't the first time it's been
