In the early hours of the recent crisis in Egypt the news was confusing and the fog of the press was overwhelming.
The original event was that the United States Embassy in Cairo issued a statement apologizing for somebody’s YouTube video that was negative of that most respected person in world history, Mohammed. Everybody knows you don’t do this. We may have to crack down on free speech in this country to make sure this doesn’t happen again.
The jihadi world, including those considerate freedom fighters in Libya, took mercy our on President’s passive position on this horrible sin, and decided to only kill only a few of the embassy personnel. Thank God that the feckless Barack Obama was on the job.
Of course, one can take a strictly Biblical view of the incidents. The following is from Hosea 8:12 in the Christian Old Testament. The Book of Hosea is one of the books of the Hebrew Bible, but not of Islam,
“They sow the wind and reap the whirlwind. The stalk has no head; it will produce no flour. Were it to yield grain, foreigners would swallow it up.”
Well, it is for darned sure we are not producing any flour from this application of world power from this situation. The fruit of our policies is disrespect and dead citizens. Freedom fighters in Libya don’t care a damned if free speech is at risk. It is almost like we are a third world country the way our citizens are murdered for no reason at all. Yeah, we are being considerate of other societies.
We get no respect!
Indeed, we should ask the question, “Would these murders have happened at all if the President of the United States were someone else than Barack Obama?”
Inquiring minds want to know.
