Exclusive to WND: William J. Murray notes ‘free speech’ isn’t to blame – appeasement is
Our ambassador to Libya was killed and our embassy in Cairo attacked this week. There is a reason I wear body armor in many of the locations I go to in the Middle East, and it is not because I like to wear 30 pounds of Kevlar reinforced with a ceramic breast plate in 110-degree weather. Even in “moderate” Islamic nations such as Jordan, attacks on non-Muslims have begun. Egypt has become a hell hole for Coptic Christians.
Islam is a culture of death, and the attacks on our embassies in the “Arab Spring” nations of Egypt and Libya, which we “liberated” from secular dictators, demonstrate this. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was on TV today with the old George W. Bush line that a small violent minority from the “religion of peace” was responsible for killing our ambassador. Really?
What was most disturbing was that once again the Obama administration apologized for America, this time for one of our most cherished values – freedom of speech. Although Barack Hussein Obama now claims to “disavow” the earlier statement of his own administration, both he and his righthand man, Hillary Clinton, continue to cast blame for the violence in Egypt and Libya on a movie telling the truth about Mohammed.
CNN and MSNBC, along with the New York Times and Washington Post, immediately joined the chorus of those claiming all Islamic violence would stop if only there were no criticism of Muslims as they rampage and murder. Hundreds of Christians in Nigeria have been slaughtered by Muslims so far this year. Was free speech to blame? Hindus and Buddhists have been murdered by the scores this year by Muslims. Is free speech to blame? Thailand is under siege, and dozens there have been murdered by Muslims this year. Is free speech to blame? Are the Muslim honor killings in Europe caused by free speech?
