Good Grief… US Embassy in Egypt Condemns US Citizens After Islamists Storm Its Walls & Torch Flag

Islamists stormed the US Embassy in Egypt today and torched the American flag. They also raised the Islamist flag.

In response the US Embassy in Egypt released this bizarre apology condemning Americans for inciting the violence.

Here’s the press release:

U.S. Embassy Condemns Religious Incitement
September 11, 2012

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

It’s our fault.

    ” as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions ”

    It is not the role of the US Government to condemn the exercise of free speech…especially on matters of religion ……Given the number of religious faithful who are easily and greatly offended……..The US will be fundamentally transformed into a medieval style inqisition panel of condemnation ……torturing people into silence…commanding people speak only in government mandated PC scripted talking points.

    That does it! O is a MUSLIM if not in practice, he certainly is in spirit having us issue crap like this!!

  • Joe College

    On 9/11 Obama blames us and not the enemy.

  • Ace

    If “Obama” was in control of the White House on 9-11-01, he would have been on the rubble apologizing to the terrorists for those towers killing them and promising them burials in Arlington.

    How can it possibly have escaped your notice that MUSLIMS ARE EXEMPT FROM OBAMACARE ENTIRELY while the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH IS NOT

    Sharia is already here . . . .

    My Christian faith with belief in the Absolute perfect HOLINESS of GOD”S WORD in HIS scripture … me the right to OFFEND the muslim by PREACHING Revelations 22:18-19

    ” 18 For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:

    19 And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    and the muslim has the right to be OFFENDED by my preaching….and it is the right of the muslim to take his OFFENSE and go wail and gnash his teeth and pound his chest and pull his beard out…..but It is not the right of the Muslim to persecute me with the condemnation of Stately powers because he is OFFENDED.

    We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

    Freedom of Speech does not mean only speech that others do not deem offensive. This statement is unconstitutional and needs to be firmly repudiated.

  • dnb

    Who wrote that for the embassy, Rev. Wright?

  • dba…vagabond trader

    Awwww, I believe they are referring to Terry Jones who is doing a mock trial of Mo. What a bunch of bedwetting muzzie appeasers.

    This is what dhimmis look like.

  • The real Wow

    What about the religious freedom and freedom of speech of the Coptic Christians?

  • Lance o Lot

    I firmly condemn the government of B. Hussien Obama for blaming Americans for everything wrong in the world and constantly apologizing for our behavior. But as far as I am concerned, Islam is the worship of Satan, and B. Hussien and all of his fellow muzzys can go to hell to meet their maker. As long as we continue to pay tribute, (a practice stopped by Thomas Jefferson and resurrected by B. Hussien) they will continue to attack us.

  • spudnik

    The release does make a point that seems to be getting missed a lot in the coverage: these attacks are happening on the anniversary of 9/11. The anti-Islam movie didn’t pop into existence today, so why now? Given the penchant for remembering dates in that part of the world, this cannot be a coincidence. This was a deliberate thumb in the eye of America.

  • redneck…..Obama is to busy to meet with Netanyalu during his visit to NY……

  • Kent

    Obama administration still wants to give Egypt $1.5 billion to the country that pokes you in the eyes and torches your embassy? No doubt, Obama is winning the foreign policy debate over Mitt Romney.

  • Whiskeytangofoxtrot

    Oh dear, I guess this means our geniuses in the State Department are still having a hard time figuring out who is behind the near or more than 20,000 violent attacks on America and its allies since 9/11? A coinkydink that these attacks occurred today on the anniversary of 9/11? And that the great unwashed masses are offended by ROPers behaviors towards all of us in any manner whatsoever? I’m sorry, I have temporarily forgotten the special word for those who offer succor, aid, or comfort to the enemy…well one thing is for certain, we are the suckers! Its no wonder they feel they are winning on the battlefield of words.

    Well, as you’ve written before, Mr. Hoft, “It’s an Obama world.” And yes, he did “build that!”

    How much you wanna bet the Preezy of the United Steezee will not resind the Mosri Whit House invitation after this attack on the US embassy.
