Turmoil & Protests Spread to Yemen, Tunisia and Still Going on in Cairo, Egypt as President Obama Continues to Campaign
Barack Obama, Commander in Chief?
The protests in Egypt and deadly riots in Libya and Egypt have spilled over now to Yemen and Tunisia.Protesters in Yemen climbed the US Embassy walls ripping down the American flag yelling “death to America”. After waiting for hours following the attacks of out foreign embassies and the death of Ambassador Stevens and three other Americans in Libya, Barack Obama claimed that we would get those responsible for these heinous acts. Then what did Obama, the Commander in Chief do? Well, he went on to campaign in Nevada of course become the Campaigner in Chief and completely trivializing the fact that four Americans were dead, murdered at a US Consulate on 9-11 on his watch. As reported at the Politico, a Consulate that had no Marines protesting it on of all days, the anniversary of 9-11. How could there have been such a screw up? Right Scoop asks why the MSM is not posing the question to Obama, why was this facility so ill prepared and protected, especially on 9-11? Of course we and most honest thinking people know the answer is because the MSM is in the tank for Obama.
In Sana, witnesses said Yemeni security forces had tried to disperse a crowd at the fortified embassy compound in the east of Sana, the capital. But protesters broke through an outer perimeter protecting the embassy, clambering over a high wall and setting fire to a building.
They were forced to retreat after trying to plunder furniture and computers, the witnesses said.
Security forces guarding the embassy fired into the air as protesters set fire to two vehicles and burned tires. Protesters tore down and burned an American flag, replacing it with their own banner proclaiming the Islamic faith, witnesses said.
The protests and riots continue in Cairo, Egypt as President Barack Obama continue to escalate with no end in sight. Obviously, the stern words by Barack Obama yesterday have fallen on deaf Muslim ears. The protests are supposed to be even larger on Friday as Muslims get ready for Friday prayer.
CNN: Protests ramp up at embassies in Tehran, Switzerland, Cairo, Yemen
Riot police fired warning shots and tear gas early Thursday outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo to keep hundreds of protesters, while demonstrators in the Yemeni capital city of Sana’a breached a wall at the American mission, witnesses and government officials said.
The protests are the latest to roil the Middle East over the online release of a film produced in the United States that denigrates Prophet Mohammed.
Several thousand protesters demonstrated outside the embassy in Sana’a, with some breaching the embassy’s security wall.
“Given recent regional developments, earlier this morning, angry protesters unfortunately flooded the security perimeter of the U.S. embassy in Sana’a, Yemen and breached the embassy’s wall,” according to a statement released by Yemen through its embassy in Washington.
More media bias and the in the tank media for Barack Obama …
What a shock, the corrupt, liberal media complex was caught red-handed coordinating their attacks against GOP Presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Members of the media were busted on an open mic coordinating their efforts to get Romney and build an anti- Romney narrative with regards to his comments he made against President Obama and the apology put out by the State Department appeasing Muslims.
On Wednesday, reporters were caught on an open microphone coordinating questions in order to build an anti-Romney narrative with one reporter apparently saying that “no matter who he calls on we’re covered on the one question,” the Right Scoop reported. The audio was captured before Romney gave a statement regarding the embassy attacks in Cairo and Libya.
The Right Scoop identified one of those in the audio as CBS News reporter Nancy Cordes, but Newsbusters’ Tim Graham identified them as CBS reporter Jan Crawford and NPR’s Ari Shapiro.
I really have to wonder how far ahead Romney would be in the polls if it were not for the all in media efforts to ensure an Obama victory in 2012.
Think the Egypt Protests were About an anti-Mohammed Movie … Radical Islamists Chant “We Are All Osama!” at US Embassy in Egypt on 9-11
If it talks like terrorism and walks like terrorist, guess what America … its not about a movie.
For those who think that the protests in Egypt and Libya were a result of a reaction to a low budget, anti-Mohammed Youtube movie are drinking some serious Kool-Aid. Just like we were told initially that the Fort Hood shooting had nothing to do with terrorism and that it was workplace violence, such is the case with the Egypt protests. Radical Islamists chanted “We Are All Osama!” at US Embassy in Egypt on 9-11 as they overran the compound. The Islamist crowd charged the US compound and burned the American flag. I guess it was just a coincidence all of this took place on the 11th anniversary of 9-11?
Today we are learning that the Embassy attack in Libya that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Embassy workers was coordinated, they were not a response of a spontaneous protest.
leading from Behind: How’s That Obama Cairo Apology Speach Looking Now? US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens & Three others Killed in Libya (Sean Smith & Two Marines)… Suffocated & Gun Shot Wounds?
So America, how that “Hopey-Changey” Barack Obama Cairo speech looking now?
President Barack Obama made it one of his first priorities to head off to Cairo, Egypt and speak to the Muslim world in his so-called Cairo speech (VIDEO), calling for renewed Middle East peace talks as well as an agenda for economic and social development in the region. How naive does Obama’s Cairo speech look this morning as two US Embassy’s were attacked yesterday, one in Cairo, Egypt and the other in Libya? Especially since Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other embassy officials were killed yesterday and the US State Department provided an apology on of all days, September 11, the 11th anniversary of 9-11.
Likewise, it is important for Western countries to avoid impeding Muslim citizens from practicing religion as they see fit – for instance, by dictating what clothes a Muslim woman should wear. We cannot disguise hostility towards any religion behind the pretence of liberalism.
Indeed, faith should bring us together. That is why we are forging service projects in America that bring together Christians, Muslims, and Jews. That is why we welcome efforts like Saudi Arabian King Abdullah’s Interfaith dialogue and Turkey’s leadership in the Alliance of Civilizations. Around the world, we can turn dialogue into Interfaith service, so bridges between peoples lead to action – whether it is combating malaria in Africa, or providing relief after a natural disaster.
Take a good look what Islamists killed, a man that was there to help the very people freed from dictator Muammar Gaddafi
Sarah Palin weighed into the fiasco on Facebook stating, “Apparently President Obama can’t see Egypt and Libya from his house. On the anniversary of the worst terrorist attacks ever perpetrated on America, our embassy in Cairo and our consulate in Benghazi were attacked by violent Islamic mobs.” Where was Obama when all this was going on? What took so long for Obama to condemn the act? Obama was so quick to jump into the fray of the Trayvon Martin murder case and the Cambrige, MA police incident, yet not the attacks on US Embassy’s and murdering of US citizens? Barack Obama should be in front of the American people yesterday denouncing this. But of course Obama is leading from behind and truly showing his smallness as the incredible shirking President needs to focus poll in order to find the right words.
A note to President Obama, this was an act of war … stay home today and off the campaign trail and pretend that you are the President of the United States. Instead what came as a response for the US, a State Department disgraceful apology that the Obama WH is trying to distance itself from. So who is to blame for the ill-advised apology, President Barack Obama or Sec. of State Hillary Clinton? Some one has to be to blame or is now one in charge?
Not only did they choose a crucial stage of the US election campaign, but the assault took place on the 11th anniversary of the terrorist attacks on September 11.
As such, President Barack Obama will come under overwhelming pressure to respond when he wakes in Washington this morning. Put bluntly, the destruction of diplomatic premises resulting in the murder of an ambassador would amount to an act of war.
Given that America’s most senior representative in Libya appears to have been killed – with some reports suggesting that three other staff also died – Mr Obama’s response will have to be far tougher.
Sorry Mr. President but you are going to have to do a lot more than simply offer your outrage and condemning the killings. It was originally reported that the killings were a result of a rocket attack. However, some are now reporting that Ambassador Stevens died of suffocation and the other three embassy workers of gun shot wounds.
The Americans were targeted in an attack in their car, trying to move to a safer venue away from the violent protests that erupted at the U.S. Consulate, Reuters reported. Stevens died of suffocation, while the three other personnel were killed by gunshot wounds, CBS News reports.
This was the first U.S. ambassador to be killed in the line of duty since 1979. Guess who was President then? My how the similarities of Jimmy Carter and Barack Obama are just uncanny. How in the hell does Barack Obama not stay in Washington, DC and act like the President as the Middle East burns? Instead, its campaigning as usual.

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.”
Punked Muslim Style … Why Shows like “Punk’d” Not Such a Good Idea in the Arab World, Egyptian Actor Beats Female Host on Live TV
I am guessing that the TV show Candid Camera would have got Allen Funt killed had it been filmed in the Arab world.
WOW, talk about your unreal Reality TV … The following is an example of why shows like ‘Punked’ are probably not the best idea in the Arab world. An Egyptian actor loses his mind in a prank gone horribly wrong, then beats a female host live on TV not realizing he is being “punked”. Good grief, it is a good thing the guy did not shot some one or cut someone’s head off. This is a must see.
Hat Tip: The Gateway Pundit
As reported at The Times of Israel, not such a good idea to punk and Egyptian with an Israel story line. I am not sure if the folks on the show understand the point of a punked show. Its not to espouse hate and nearly get some one killed. Who would have thought this would have gone horribly wrong? What’s next, Punk’d … Al Qaeda?
Two Egyptian actors, “pranked” by an Egyptian TV station over the weekend into thinking that they were being interviewed by Israeli TV, responded furiously onscreen. Both of them attacked a man they thought was the show’s Israeli producer, and one of them, Ayman Kandeel, smashed up the studio and slapped the female host he thought was Israeli so hard that she crumpled to the floor.
Kandeel also appeared to reach for a gun at one point, having earlier said he had one. But he didn’t pull one out, and later said he didn’t have a gun with him.
A third pranked guest, an actress, called all Israelis liars and denounced them for “whining about the Holocaust and its lousy figures.”
Egyptians Protesters Chant “Monica! Monica!” and Throw Tomotoes & Shoes at Motorcade As Sec of State Hillary Clinton Drives By (Video)
Oh that Obama Arab Spring … America, how’s that “Araby-Springy” thing working out for ya?
Didn’t the Egyptian protesters get the memo, Bill Clinton did not have sexual relations with that woman, miss Lewinky, not a single time? I guess not. Egyptians Protesters chanted “Monica! Monica!” and threw tomatoes, shoes and bottles at the motorcade of Barack Obama’s Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as they drove by. Many in Egypt are protesting over the US government siding with the Muslim Brotherhood in the recent elections.
Protesters threw tomatoes and shoes at U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s motorcade on Sunday during her first visit to Egypt since the election of Islamist President Mohamed Mursi.
A tomato struck an Egyptian official in the face, and shoes and a water bottle landed near the armoured cars carrying Clinton’s delegation in the port city of Alexandria.
A senior state department official said that neither Clinton nor her vehicle, which were around the corner from the incident, were struck by any of the projectiles.
Protesters chanted: “Monica, Monica”, a reference to Former President Bill Clinton’s extra-marital affair. Some chanted: “leave, Clinton”, Egyptian security officials said.
Instapundit muses over the fact that the LEFT joked when one guy threw a shoe at former President George W. Bush, this must be so much more funny seeing that it was a massive crowd that did so and chanted as well. Hmm?
Prominent Christian Egyptians Snubbed Cairo Meeting with Obama Sec. of State Hillary Clinton, Claim US Backed Islamists Muslim Brotherhood
As reported at MSNBC, prominent Christian Egyptians snubbed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because they claim that the Barack Obama administration favored the Muslim Brotherhood over other secular parties in Egypt. Honestly, can you blame them? As stated at Atlas Shrugs, “Why isn’t this splashed all over the Obama-media? No, the enemedia is too obsessed with the presidential year’s “Haliburton” ….Bain Capitol. How is the whole world know who and what Obama is, and the American people don’t?
Prominent Christian Egyptians snubbed Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Sunday because they feel the U.S. administration favors Islamist parties over secular and liberal forces in society at the expense of Egypt’s 8 million Christians.
The critical theme was repeated by others Sunday in Cairo and Alexandria despite Clinton denying U.S. interference in Egyptian elections.
The politicians, businessmen and clerics who snubbed Clinton were supposed to take part in meetings between Clinton and influential members of civil society.
Coptic Bishop Morcos and Evangelical church leader Safwat al Bayadi refused to meet with Clinton because of what they characterized as interference in Egyptian internal affairs and U.S. support for Islamists while ignoring the majority of Egyptians.
Two Americans Kidnapped in Egypt, Victims … Pastor Michel Louis, a Woman from Another Church Lisa Alphonse & Egyptian Tour Guide
Two Americans and an Egyptian tour guide have been kidnapped at gunpoint in the Sinai peninsula of Egypt. The two American kidnapping victims are 61 year old Michel Louis, the pastor of the Free Pentecostal Church of God in Dorchester, MA in the Boston area and 39 year old Lisa Alphonse, a female member from another church that works closely with his father’s congregation. Pastor Louis was on his annual missionary trip trip to Israel, however, this year he ventured into Egypt. The family claims that pastor Michel Louis was unaware of the dangers of this area even though there had been previous kidnappings as seen HERE and HERE.
An American pastor kidnapped in Egypt was not aware of the danger of traveling to the area, his son said Sunday.
Pastor Michel Louis, a woman from another church, and an Egyptian tour guide were taken off a bus on Friday, Louis’s son Jean told CNN’s Early Start Weekend show.
“As the tour bus was in area of the Sinai peninsula of Egypt, they were stopped by a couple of cars,” Jean Louis said he had heard from his mother, who was on the bus.
“In the cars were some gentlemen who got onto the bus. They detained both my father …. and another woman who was part of the group on their way to Israel,” he said.
The other American seized was a female congregant from another church that works closely with his father’s congregation, he said.
The reason for the kidnapping was to free one of the kidnappers uncle’s from an Egyptian prison. Jirmy Abu-Masuh vowed to kidnap more individuals until his demands are met.
Jirmy Abu-Masuh, 32, of the Tarbeen tribe, said in an interview that he stopped their tour bus and also kidnapped their 28-year-old tour guide Haytham Ragab as well so he could translate.
Abu-Masuh told The Associated Press that the Americans are being treated well — they’ve been given tea and a traditional Bedouin meal of lamb — but they won’t be released until his uncle, who is in an Egyptian prison, is released as well. He also said that if his uncle is not released, he will abduct more people.
Allen West or Barack Obama, you make the call …
Allen West, a man wise beyond his years. A year ago US Rep. Allen West (R-FL) told supporters, “I fear the Arab Spring is really a Muslim Brotherhood nightmare.” Looks like he was spot on in his analysis. However, one man’s “radical Islamic nightmare” is another one’s (The One’s) congratulatory call. That is correct Barack Obama called Mohamed Morsi to congratulate the Muslim Brotherhood candidate on his victory and looked forward to working with him in the future.
From Facebook, Allen West responds to the Muslim Brotherhood victory in the Egyptian Presidential election.
A year ago there were those of us who warned the Obama Administration of a Muslim Brotherhood takeover in Egypt. We were castigated as alarmists and loose cannons. Today our predictions have come to reality and the ominous specter reminding us of the Iranian revolution is evident. The Muslim Brotherhood claimed they would not run a presidential candidate. Clearly the Arab Spring is nothing more than a radical Islamic nightmare. Now we need to unequivocally reiterate our support to the Coptic Christians and Israel. What an incredible foreign policy faux pas by the second coming of President Jimmy Carter, the Obama Administration. I call upon President Barack Obama to cut off American foreign aid to Egypt, denounce the results of this election, repudiate the Muslim Brotherhood, and all radical Islamist political entities
