US Embassy in Cairo Apologizes Condemns Free Speech in America

After the US Embassy in Cairo was attacked, our flag removed and replaced with what looks like an al-Qaeda flag or some appropriately black flag or symbol of Islam, US Embassy officials, on September 11, 2012, issued this statement:

Seige on US Embassy in Cairo, Egypt 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

What school of diplomacy did these embassy officials graduate to say the words “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.” 

Translation: We apologize for the man who is making a film criticizing Islam, because no one has the right to offend Muslims. Problem is, these ‘officials’ believe what they are saying. Our State Department is rife with appeasers and Muslim State Department employees.

  • Just as a church takes on the personality of it’s pastor, America has taken on the personalty of it’s President. This is why we need a new president if America is to survive.

  • “What school of diplomacy did these embassy officials graduate to say the words “hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.””

    The Barack Obama-Killary Clinton school of diplomacy. I am fed up with this administration think they have to apologize for America. It is past time for Obama to step aside so an adult can take over.

  • Obama’s White house stepped it back on the apology, but really? Once you stepped in manure, you still have the smell. They claim Romney has no foreign credentials. Really.. Obama has been in the White House for almost 4 years.. Does he and his team have any? I’ll go with someone who is clear thinking and, from what I hear about Obama, can make a decision and I’m sure would be there for the daily security update meetings. Yeah O had creds.. lol

  • Too bad we hurt their feelings. Maybe we should send them more money and their feelings will be better.

    Or maybe we should send some of those nice jet planes we have on our aircraft carriers. The Egyptians have a nice dam that could be made better.

    • I’ll check it Xavier. Thanks for the heads up. Oh, that’s the one they took down. I’m trying to figure out what time it was taken down. Here’s exactly what it said:

      “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.

      It was just that short paragraph and I think there was a line of introduction of some kind, but not certain.
