thanks for the bhengazi photos

it's so moving to see people come out like that try to show
us who know and those who may be beyond mind-changing
that radical Islamnists are not majority

as radical Christian don't represent the majority of Christians

The crisis rages on...

Quote:
The fury over an anti-Islam film that targeted American diplomatic missions has spread to a number of other Western facilities in the Muslim world, raising the specter Saturday of a widening protest. Attacks on German and British embassies in Sudan, the ransacking of an American school in Tunisia, a fire at a U.S.-based fast-food restaurant in Lebanon and attacks against multi-national peacekeepers in Egypt's Sinai Peninsula were among the latest targets in protests that turned violent.
The unrest reached Australia, where hundreds of demonstrators clashed Saturday with police outside the U.S. Consulate in Sydney.
Top Western diplomats warned leaders in countries where the unrest has been most pronounced to ensure the protection of its missions and its people.
Quote:

Australia became the latest nation to cope with protests.
Carrying signs that read: "Obama, Obama, we like Osama" and "Behead All Those Who Insult the Prophet," protesters in Sydney gathered on the steps of the consulate.
http://www.cnn.com/2012/09/15/world/...dmn_topstories

That first sign is disturbing. They're showing loyalty to a terrorist? The second sign is laughable. Its amazing how some Muslims insist their religion is about peace, yet are willing to be violent to defend it. I remember during the Prophet Muhammad cartoons riots, one protester had a sign that read "Behead those who say Islam is violent". Oh, the irony.

The challenger for the office of President of the United States takes reporter's questions over events in Libya including a statement issued by the U.S. embassy in Egypt.

I think the filmmaker is a racist, stupid bigot.

I don't hold him responsible for the attacks in any way. Neither does anyone else in here.

But there seems to be the sentiment that he needed to be more responsible with his freedom of speech rights.

I would just like him to get the full benefit (consequences) of his dishonest behavior.

There's a phrase that's always been applied to free speech: you can't yell "fire" in a crowded theater.

These idiots riot and kill over cartoons. You can't step on eggshells to appease a bunch of fucking hissy fitting babies.

Can you imagine if it was a different, non religious group we were talking about? "Oh, don't depict Ronald in a poor light. the McDonalds workers might kill someone"

Have you seem the film?

That aside, again, no one is excusing the actions of these people. We're just looking at the situation in context. So nothing to get worried about.

I quickly skipped through it, pausing it laugh at the awesome greenscreen work. My point is that the film is irrelevant; they've thrown homicidal tantrums for much less

the challenger making the crisis about himself after making an embarrassing, humiliating mistake regarding the timeline of events, and trying desperately to milk whatever possible political gain he can with his anti-Mulsim base while most of the "mainstream" GOP ignores or condemns his idiotic remarks.

the President continues to act with tact, nuance, and maximum efficacy.

McCain to Hannity: Fox 'wrong about Libya'
326

Comments (99) By MACKENZIE WEINGER | 9/14/12 3:23 PM EDT


Sen. John McCain on Thursday night clashed with Sean Hannity, telling the Fox News host that he and others on the network “were wrong about Libya.”

McCain's remarks came after Hannity claimed he had accurately predicted that the Muslim Brotherhood would take control of Egypt, and pressed the Arizona Republican on why the Obama administration was not able to foresee this week's attacks on U.S. diplomats in North Africa.

“How is it that Sean Hannity and a few others of us out here predicted with pinpoint accuracy that the Muslim Brotherhood would be in charge in Egypt? Their first task when they took over the Parliament was to declare Israel, our closest ally, an enemy. First, their number one enemy,” Hannity said. “How is it that the administration with all their intelligence and all the money we spend to help them and the CIA — how is it that they didn’t see this coming? And they kept telling the American people, this is democracy. Democracy. I don’t view the Muslim Brotherhood as democracy. They want Sharia law implemented now in Egypt.”

McCain pushed back, telling Hannity that “that’s not clear that that’s true” and that he and Fox News were wrong with their take on the elections in Libya.

“But also it was you and people on Fox that said in Libya, ‘we didn’t know who they were and let’s not help these people.’ They had an election and they elected moderates. They rejected Islamists,” McCain said. “And yes, there are Al Qaeda factors and there are extremists in Libya today, but the Libyan people are friends of ours, and they support us, and they support democracy. So you were wrong about Libya.”

“I don’t think I was wrong about Libya at all,” Hannity replied.

McCain jumped in, telling Hannity, “Yes I do, I know you were.”

“No, I was not,” the Fox News host said.

“I know you were. They had a free and fair election, and a democratic non-Islamic government was elected. So you were wrong,” McCain said.

Hannity then said he was surprised McCain wasn’t siding with him.

“They didn’t think the Muslim Brotherhood would take over? This is a known terror organization. We say we’re fighting a war on terror, we’re apologizing, our government, to Egypt after they raid our embassy and rip our flag down?” Hannity said. “Frankly, Senator, I would think you are with me on this.”

The interview wrapped after McCain replied, “I am not taking the side of the administration. I am saying that the largest nation in the Arab world is something we have to carefully calibrate our actions with.”
