It’s time for another Obama apology – A really heart-felt one this time.
That ought to do it.

Muslims in Libya desecrated a World War II British Cemetery after Barack Obama apologized for a pile of torched korans in Afghanistan.
The Daily Mail reported, via ROP:

A furious mob has desecrated dozens of Commonwealth War Graves in a Libyan cemetery amid continuing fury in the Middle East over the burning of the Koran by U.S. soldiers.

Headstones commemorating British and Allied servicemen, killed during World War II campaigns in the Western Desert, lay smashed and strewn across Benghazi Military Cemetery.

Protesters rampaged through site on Friday, despite efforts by America to calm tensions sparked when it emerged U.S. soldiers had burned Muslim holy books in a pile of rubbish at a military base in Afghanistan.

President Obama has apologised to President Karzai for the unintentional burning of the Korans at NATO’s main Bagram air base after Afghan labourers found charred copies while collecting rubbish.

White House spokesman Jay Carney sought to counter criticism, telling reporters on board Air Force One: ‘It is wholly appropriate, given the sensitivities to this issue, the understandable sensitivities.’

But it appears to have had little affect on sentiment among many in the Middle East.

Twelve people died today during the bloodiest day yet of protests over the incident.

Immediately after news broke of the incident, more than 2,000 furious Afghans – some chanting ‘die, die foreigners’, other throwing rocks – gathered outside the giant US air base at Bagram, 40 miles north of the capital Kabul, as reports of the burning spread.

Military sources said that books were removed from the library of a nearby detention center because they contained extremist messages.

Prisoners had been writing in the books as way of communicating.

  1. Yeah, Moslems – a real class act.

  2. Took a sledge hammer from the looks of it. What say we take a sledge hammer to their hands.

  3. Obama sits back, takes a big drink of Colt 44, smiles…..

  4. I look forward to the day when Obama no longer embarrasses our country on the world stage. Embarrassing, embarrassing rube.

  5. Ron Paul actually makes Obama look like the crazy uncle.

  6. “What say we take a sledge hammer to their hands.”

    Works for me, but a tap with the hammer to a spot just above and a little in front of either ear would cure all kinds of the ill temperament and lack of respect shown to those tombstones also.

  7. There will never be peace. They live a completely different life and in a completely different world.

    And in my opinion they are leaving in a different Century.

  8. So it’s ok for extremists to write in the books as a form of communicating, but it’s deadly to burn the books by mistake.

    Muslims are absolutely the most intolerant group of people on this planet…and they know it…and they don’t care.

    Obama divided America

    A new survey shows that Barack Obama is the most polarizing president in the last 60 years. As divisive as he is, the current occupant of the White House has simply exacerbated a trend towards disunity that has been developing for years.

    A report released by Gallup on Friday shows that the partisan divide over Mr. Obama continued a record-setting pace for the third year straight. In 2011, the gap between his approval ratings by party was 68 percent, the highest for any third-year president on record. Even the liberal Washington Post headlined its report on the Gallup survey as, “Obama: The most polarizing president. Ever.”

    The Gallup data show that while Mr. Obama has had the most polarized first three years in office, they also reveal that George W. Bush holds the top three slots for most divisive presidential years ever, occurring 2004-2007. This shows that the partisan antipathy is mutual. This is a recent phenomenon; eight of the top 10 most divided years have occurred from 2004 to the present.

    During the 2008 presidential campaign, Mr. Obama promised to heal the partisan breach. He said he would be a unifier, that he would reach across party lines, that he would forge consensus. Once he took office, however, armed with a hard-left agenda and backed by a supermajority in Congress, the arrogance of power overwhelmed the better angels of his nature. Those who questioned his policies were labeled extremists, or worse. Dissent was smacked down, Congress rammed through his contentious programs, and Democrats were punished for their conceit with a “shellacking” in the 2010 midterm elections.

    Since 2011, bereft of his congressional amen corner, Mr. Obama has grown particularly contemptuous of the system. He has sought ways to expand the powers claimed by the executive and obeys only the laws that suit him. A compliant Justice Department fabricates thin rationales that convince none but those who would affirm anything Mr. Obama did anyway. This has had a particularly destructive impact on the bonds of trust and tradition without which our system cannot function. Some ask: If the president does not abide by the Constitution, why should anyone else?

    Yet the problem is much deeper than Mr. Obama, and the decline in political legitimacy goes beyond the executive. Regard for Congress has been on a nosedive for the past 10 years. Members of both political parties give Congress a positive rating in the low teens, and approval from independents is a mere 7 percent. Gallup data for December 2011 showed 86 percent disapproval of Congress, which is a record high. Disapproval ratings for the Supreme Court are near records as well. According to a Gallup report released in September, the general sense of satisfaction over how the country is being governed has dropped from 59 percent in 2003 to a historic low of 19 percent.

    These data demonstrate a growing undercurrent of discontent. The division in the country is narrow; there are many on each side. But the gulf is deep, and growing deeper. The question now is: Can any politician or party heal this rift, or has the United States truly become a house divided?

    I just needed to post this.

  12. Although we are repeatedly told that Islam is a peaceful religion…we never hear the second part, which is this-as long as we convert, call Jews and Christians pigs, and NEVER never harm the koran.

    Funny the book that predates the koran-by a good deal of time, suffered the same fate, three years ago in Afghanistan, yet no one died, no graves were desecrated. Hmm

  13. More blood for their Blood God.

  14. Why are no muslims living in America(who claim to be patriotic) professing outrage at this barbaric behavior?………crickets

  15. I’m announcing that tomorrow is “Mock and Scorn a Loser Liberal” day. Care to join me?

    I’m looking forward to laughing my ass of at anyone I know who voted for Obama. You know, the hopey changey dopes who get walked all over by the real bad dudes in the world. Bush may have been a dullard and a C+ student (compared to the D student Obama) but when he got worked up, you knew he’d make good on his threat.

    Obama’s foreign policy is that of ashamed, effeminate appeasement and cowardice. Not a single national leader in the world has a milliliter of respect for that stupidity. The world is a tough place.

    Iran? Obama bows, cowers, cries, sends love letters, pleads for understanding, and gets America screwed in an unfortunate way over and over. About that nuke weapons program? Yea… those nice letters and hollow threats of “I’m really going to remove you from my Facebook friends next time!” are pathetically ignored.

    China? They’ve subscribed to the Gun and Sandwich Rule: If they have a gun, and America has a sandwich, they have a gun and a sandwich. They’re stealing our military secrets, our tech, screwing the currency and Obama does nothing but bow.

    The Taliban have got Obama’s number too: W-E-A-K-L-I-N-G

    I have a hunch Michelle had to do both parts to produce children (either that or had a surrogate husband). The only balls Barry has are reserved for hating his country and giving its assets over to fat cat one percent global oligarchs and billionaires. OWS and Democrats, you’re intellectual frauds for backing this loser.

    being silenced by the OA et al..

    transcript:

    [Today, in the White House, there are three members of the Muslim Brotherhood that influence Obama's policy. One is Rashad Hassan of Indian origin, who is the American ambassador to the 52-nation organization of Islamic countries. Dahlia Mujahid who writes his speech, who comes from the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Just day before yesterday, another woman, an academic, was appointed in that circle. This is happening while we sit silent, and I say that as a liberal democrat, as someone who worked and campaigned for Barrack Obama.

    We have evidence in Canada of this penetration that's going on. Our campuses are no longer the campuses where you can talk freely. You have antisemitism on the rise at University of Toronto. Just a couple of weeks ago, there was a count of Jews in the University of Toronto--in an academics class. This is happening friends. I'm not talking of Nuremberg or Heidelberg of the '30s. I'm talking 2011 University of Toronto here in the Social Work Department, where the professor said to the class, Oh, half of my peers are Jews, and it went unprotested. And when it starts with the Jews, because they are so few, trust me, it extends to other people.

    We have sacrificed a lot to create a society where men and women are equal, where black and white can be of equal status, where citizenship is not based on inherited race or religion. Let us not sacrifice that in the name of pluralism and tolerance, and tolerate bigotry and Islamofascism as if it was something that need to be tolerated. I refer to that as "racism of lower expectations," when you say yes, the rest of us are equal human beings but those Muslims--well, maybe they are not yet fully developed as human beings, so we will put a lower threshold. If that guy beats up his wife and kills his daughter, we won't even call it honor killing. That happened in this city! When Aqsa Pervez died, there were women groups saying that's not honor killing. For crying out loud, 5000 Pakistani women die every year. If you claim you have done an honor killing, you get half a sentence than what you do with a murder. And yet, there are feminist organizations in this city that would refer to me as a right-wing lunatic or an agent of Zionism for having spoken up for the dead body of Aqsa Pervez.

    Why is it happening? Because we are not speaking out. And the dangers
    we face, if we do not confront them today, our children will not forgive us
    tomorrow.
