Following an apology by the embassy in Cairo for Americans who portrayed Islam in a negative light, Muslims attacked diplomatic facilities in Libya and Egypt which resulted in the death of several Americans including the Libyan ambassador.
On the anniversary of 9/11, Muslims in Egypt stormed and attacked the U.S. embassy in Cairo.
The armed attack was reportedly caused by an American film that portrays Muhammed as a womanizer, pedophile and fraud. Islamist historians readily admit that when Muhammed was in his fifties he married and had sexual relations with Aisha, a nine year old girl.
Egypt is currently ruled by the Muslim Brotherhood which has been described as a moderate Muslim organization. The Obama administration had recently given $1.5 billion to the Egyptian government.
The U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a statement online condemning Americans exercising their First Amendment rights by anything negative about Islam saying. “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.”
Muslims in Egypt responded to the statement by attacking the embassy with gunfire. The assailants tore down and destroyed the American flag, replacing it with a black Islamic flag that said “There is no god but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.”
Following the attack the embassy tweeted a statement standing by its apology saying, “This morning’s condemnation (issued before protest began) still stands. As does our condemnation of unjustified breach of the Embassy.”
The statement by the embassy in Cairo was widely criticized by conservatives who said the statement amounted to a government apology for allowing criticism of Islam in the United States.
As the apology became a political issue, the administration claimed the Cairo embassy acted without authority when it issued the statement.
Following the Obama’s administration disavowing the apology the embassy deleted the apology and subsequent affirmation.
In the hours following the “apology” statement Muslims attacked the U.S. consulate in Libya with machine-gunfire and rocket propelled grenades, killing Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans. Stevens had gone to the consulate to assist with evacuating staff as the building came under attack by Islamists.
The attacks on the embassy and consulate which are considered sovereign U.S. soil on the 12th anniversary of 9/11 are eerily reminiscent of the day of the attack itself. Video on the day of the attacks showed large crowds of Palestinians dancing and celebrating in the streets over the Islamic terrorist attacks after they heard the news about the planes flying into the twin towers and the Pentagon.
