The Obama Administration and the OIC: The Anti-Free Speech Coalition
by Joseph Puder
Reacting to the murderous rioting against the U.S. throughout the Arab and Muslim world and especially in Libya, where U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens was murdered, and in Egypt, President Obama, who authorized millions in aid to Libya, said on September 12th: "Since our founding the United States has been a nation that respects all faiths. We reject all efforts to denigrate the religious beliefs of others…Already, many Libyan have joined us…and this attack will not break the bonds between the U.S. and Libya[.]"
Obama and his administration officials have vehemently attacked the anti-Muslim video produced by a private American citizen, and yet they conveniently ignore the fact that the Obama administration supported the people who are now expressing visceral hate for America, in spite of Obama's four-year record of appeasing Islam and Muslim countries. An example of which was obvious in the statement issued by the Embassy of Cairo: "The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims."
The Obama administration has yet to make the correlation between the killing of an American ambassador and the torching of U.S. embassies (which represent sovereign American territories) on the anniversary of September 11, and the rise to power of anti-American Islamists in Egypt and Libya, as well as elsewhere in the Arab Middle East.
