So What if They Did?

Obama's response to the atrocities perpetrated against our Embassies in Libya and Egypt can be summed up thusly: It's not me and it's not America, they love us. It's that darned movie! Yeah right. The king of the straw-man argument outdoes himself. A child could see these were coordinated, planned attacks to commemorate 9/11, a near religious holiday in the Moslem world. But for the sake of argument let's say the film was the cause. So what?

The film obviously portrays Muhammad and his dog-breath religion in a bad light. But they do that themselves everyday. I guess when we see beheadings and stonings and women mutilated in full view of the world, we're supposed to feel warm and fuzzy all over for the "Religion of Peace". Moslems complaining about this film because it "insults their prophet" is absurd. If this is the tolerant, peaceful religion they profess it to be, then they insult their prophet everyday and especially with their actions of this week.

Now, according to somewhat sketchy reports, the makers of the film "Innocence of Muslims" are ex-pat Coptic Christians living in the L.A. area. They have since gone into hiding fearing for their lives. And what about the Coptic Christians in Egypt? They have been brutalized, raped, and murdered for 1500 years with very little outcry from anybody. This was in the New Republic a few months ago.
Two Coptic families were attacked in their homes and eleven people, including children, were killed. Four others survived, despite having been shot. The report states that the families knew their attackers, Islamist militants divided into two groups who accessed the Coptic homes through the roofs of their neighbors’ houses. The survivors say the masked attackers of the first home were led by Ibrahim Hamdy Ibrahim. They killed Joseph Waheeb Massoud, his wife Samah, their 15-year-old daughter Christine, and their eight-year-old son Fady Youssef. The other masked group was led by Yasser Essam Khaled. They killed Saleeb Ayad Mayez, his wife Zakia, their four-year-old son Joseph and three-year-old daughter Justina, his 23-year-old sister Amgad, their mother Zakia, and Saniora Fahim.
This kind of persecution goes on all the time in Egypt and throughout the Middle-East, and nobody says a word. These guys were just trying to get a little attention paid to their people's suffering, and a little payback probably. Wouldn't you?

But we should use this as a teachable moment. We know the film is just a pretext for violence against us but we should run with it. We can shame the Egyptians and Islam for their brutality towards Christians and other minorities. We should beat them over the head with this, and it's only right. Egypt is most likely lost as any sort of ally or partner in the region so let's start demanding they act civilized if they want our money and friendship. And if it turns out Egypt is in fact lost to the nut-case Islamo-Fascists, we can thank the Democrats and Barack Obama.

We clearly need another beer summit.

What is going to happen in October when Hollywood releases its bin Laden movie with it's depiction of Obama as a black Rambo, wiping out Osama single handedly?

I'm eager for the movie: "Crusades II" but more eager for the real thing.

Rush keeps making the point that maybe it was Obama's constant crowing about killing bin Laden that set these idiots off.
