So, women, if your freedom is contingent on what sharia law, are you really free?
“Egyptian women who joined their male compatriots in the protest movement that brought down the Mubarak regime face the likelihood that a new national constitution will retain a provision making gender equality in the country conditional on shari’a (Islamic law).
Egypt moved closer to a new constitution Sunday, when political parties reportedly reached agreement on remaining sticking points, including the role of shari’a and gender equality.”
Even if he didn’t say Amen, he didn’t get up and leave when the cleric said this.
“According to senior diplomatic sources, the US State Department had credible information 48 hours before mobs charged the consulate in Benghazi, and the embassy in Cairo, that American missions may be targeted, but no warnings were given for diplomats to go on high alert and “lockdown”, under which movement is severely restricted.
Mr Stevens had been on a visit to Germany, Austria and Sweden and had just returned to Libya when the Benghazi trip took place with the US embassy’s security staff deciding that the trip could be undertaken safely.
Eight Americans, some from the military, were wounded in the attack which claimed the lives of Mr Stevens, Sean Smith, an information officer, and two US Marines. All staff from Benghazi have now been moved to the capital, Tripoli, and those whose work is deemed to be non-essential may be flown out of Libya.”
“Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian [redacted due to CBS' bias]…as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The official said authorities had concluded that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was behind “Innocence of Muslims,” a film that denigrated Islam and the prophet Muhammad and sparked protests earlier this week in Egypt, Libya and most recently in Yemen. It was not immediately clear whether Nakoula was the target of a criminal investigation or part of the broader investigation into the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya during a terrorist attack.
Attorney General Eric Holder confirmed Thursday that Justice Department officials were investigating the deaths, which occurred during an attack on the American mission in Benghazi.
The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity [SPOKESMAN GETS ANONYMITY BUT FILMMAKER DOESN'T] because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation, said Nakoula was connected to the persona of Sam Bacile, a man who initially told the AP he was the film’s writer and director. But Bacile turned out to be a false identity, and the AP traced a cellphone number Bacile used to a southern California house where it located and interviewed Nakoula.”
By now you’ve heard Obama’s Pravda ganging up on Romney over his wholly appropriate, timely, and necessary remarks regarding the Libyan embassy attack and the death of four Americans including Ambassador Stevens who, by the way, was reportedly sodomized before being shot.
How can the dinosaur media, while bleeding out viewers and money, be so partisan as to lay down the blanket of politics before they make a single move to do their jobs?
I have my beefs with Romney, but his comments on the situations across the Middle East are exactly what Americans and the rest of the world need to hear. By them Mr. Romney is behaving in a manner befitting a true president of the United States.
Truly, the current White House occupier is an empty chair.
“Ask yourself if this sounds familiar: a group of protesters have stormed the American embassy in Cairo, Egypt, tore down the U.S. flag, ripped it to shreds and burned pieces of it. Last month, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drove through a hail of tomatoes and shoes being thrown at her motorcade, as she drove through the increasingly-unstable Egypt. Under the watch of a weak Democratic American president, a middle-eastern nation that was once friendly to American interests has fallen to Islamic extremists that have stormed our embassy to pay disrespect to America. I think you see where I’m going with this…”
“Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi asked the Egyptian embassy in Washington to take legal action in the United States against makers of a film attacking the Muslim Prophet Mohammad, the official state news agency said on Wednesday.
Morsi had requested the mission take “all legal measures”, the MENA agency said, without giving further details on what that might involve. (Reuters)”
