Chaos in Egypt as Islamists Scale the walls of the US Embassy in Cairo After Pastor Terry Jones Posts Anti-Mohammed Film (VIDEO) … State Department Apologizes???
All hell breaks loose in Cairo, Egypt as Islamists scale the walls of the US Embassy after Pastor Terry Jones Posts Anti-Mohammed Film. During the protest the American flag was taken down and torn into pieces and replaced with a black flag with the words “There is no God but God, and Mohammad is his messenger”. Wow, what does this remind America of? A Ed Driscoll states, can you say, “Welcome Back Carter”? Once again Barack Obama is leading from behind.
Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy on Tuesday, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad.
In place of the U.S. flag, the protesters tried to raise a black flag with the words “There is no God but God, and Mohammad is his messenger”, a Reuters witness said.
Once the U.S. flag was hauled down, some protesters tore it up and showed off pieces to television cameras. Others burned the remains outside the fortress-like embassy building in central Cairo. But some protesters objected to the flag burning.
Many Muslims consider any depiction of the Prophet to be offensive.
“This movie must be banned immediately and an apology should be made,” said 19-year-old Ismail Mahmoud, a member of the so-called “ultras” soccer supporters who played a big role in the uprising that brought down Hosni Mubarak last year.
So what does Team Obama do? Well they did what they do best, apologize.

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.
Below is the VIDEO that supposedly sparked the chaos, Jones is calling 9-11 “International Judge Mohammed Day.”
