I would be inclined to quote more, if it weren't for the Obama administration's own sorry record of video apologetics and premature blame these past two weeks, and for the fact that the president's welcome-if-overdue remarks today were bracketed by some assertions that can best be described as heinous ...

"It is not any politician's job, and certainly not any American politician's job, to instruct the entire world on which films to criticize."

Obama is the cause of all murdering and killing going on in the world.
Obama favors Muslims murdering innocent people, so he can lead from behind and condemn it after it happens.
Obama did not care to protect those THAT WERE Murdered in Libya.

That means that murderous muslims are not responsible for their own actions because Obama caused them to kill?
That's just as bogus as blaming a video that came out months ago for the recent embassy protests.

This and everything else you posted is nonsense that just detracts from the message of this thread.

Muslims will use any excuse to cause trouble. If the movie came out months ago, then why did it take them so damn long to react??? I believe this was politically motivated. Muslims are shameful people.

When you mix politics and religion you create a recipe for DISASTER.

There isn't one free democratic country in islam; although inalienable rights are alien to most muslims, it's hard to believe that Obama is a constitutional lawyer after he just trashed America's establishment clause.

Try saying it in a Canadian public school or Merry Christmas.

Meanwhile, muslims are being allowed prayer rooms in Ontario public schools and demanding more.

You haven't got to travel to an overseas islamic state to witness the beginnings of a cultural jihad. Just take I95 north.

Below are two earlier articles about the destruction of the churches. The first is from AINA:

Nearly 4000 Muslims Attack Christian Homes in Egypt, Torch Church

by Mary Abdelmassih

(AINA)— A mob of nearly four thousand Muslims has attacked Coptic homes this evening in the village of Soul, Atfif in Helwan Governorate, 30 kilometers from Cairo, and torched the Church of St. Mina and St. George. There are conflicting reports about the whereabouts of the Church pastor Father Yosha and three deacons who were at church; some say they died in the fire and some say they are being held captive by the Muslims inside the church.

Witnesses report the mob prevented the fire brigade from entering the village. The army, which has been stationed for the last two days in the village of Bromil, 7 kilometers from Soul, initially refused to go into Soul, according to the officer in charge. When the army finally sent three tanks to the village, Muslim elders sent them away, saying that everything was “in order now.”

A curfew has been imposed on the 12,000 Christians in the village.

This incident was triggered by a relationship between 40-year-old Copt Ashraf Iskander and a Muslim woman. Yesterday a “reconciliation” meeting was arranged between the relevant Coptic and Muslim families and together with the Muslim elders it was decided that Ashraf Iskander would have to leave the village because Muslims torched his house.

The father of the Muslim woman was killed by his cousin because he did not kill his daughter to preserve the family’s honor, which led the woman’s brother to avenge the death of his father by killing the cousin. The village Muslims blamed the Christians.

The Muslim mob attacked the church, exploding 5-6 gas cylinders inside the church, pulled down the cross and the domes and burnt everything inside. Activist Ramy Kamel of Katibatibia Coptic advocacy called US-based Coptic Hope Sat TV and sent an SOS on behalf of the Copts in Soul village, as they are presently being attacked by the mob. He also said that no one is able to contact the priest and the deacons inside the burning church and there is no answer from their mobile phones.
