Tuesday, September eleventh was the eleventh anniversary of that horrible event that changed America forever. It seems it is also a catalyst to incite copycat events to create a September Surprise that can be used in favor of the GOP’s claim that President Obama is an unfit leader who is too soft on terrorism and, apparently an entire religion: Islam. The Right Wing Christian Fundamentalists have been pleading their case and the evidence these lunatics are trying to impose their perverted will on our foreign policy can be found in the who’s who list of speakers at the Value Voters Summit. One of the ardent supporters of this insane inflammatory rhetoric is Morris Sadek, Egyptian Coptic Christian and promoter of a film that has sparked anti-American riots in SEVENTEEN countries, as of today. The film is called Innocence of Muslims, and it is a movie steeped in horrible production quality, deception and hate for Islam. Sadek had a prominent role in thrusting this idiotic garbage upon the Muslim world and it seems Romney and Netanyahu are in lock step with this producer’s agenda.
Netanyahu’s criticism often undermines the Obama Administration‘s efforts to prevent a very unwise conflict with Muslim nations, especially Iran. Immediately following the attacks on the American Embassy in Benghazi, Netanyahu all too quickly jumped on the opportunity to push for a war against the Persian nation. His trusted American allies are not the elected President but, rather, his friends on the American right, the politicians, business people, and lobbyists, who are never willing to disagree with Israel at all. It has reached the point where even Netanyahu’s principal ally in sabre-rattling, the Defense Minister, Ehud Barak, has shown signs that he, too, believes the Prime Minister has gone too far. It is obvious to the world that Netanyahu is an ardent supporter of Romney, a puppet whose strings he can pull to do his Likudnik bidding.
Mitt Romney, preemptively issued criticism of the Obama Administration’s handling of the affair, citing lax security on the matter, except the embassy statement Romney referenced had been issued before protesters reached the embassy. Coincidentally, the film’s producer “Sam Bacile” (his alias) said, “I feel the security system (at the embassies) is no good… America should do something to change it.” I’m so glad this convicted criminal (Bacile) agrees with Mitt Romney. As the saying goes, birds of a feather. Coincidentally, the congressman in the Bacile’s district, California’s 25th, is a fellow Mormon, Buck McKeon, Republican chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, a known warmonger. Most Republicans have criticized these unwise comments uttered by Willard before he had all the information, but McKeon seems to be the one that concocted Romney’s statements. The riots sparked by the film are a welcome distraction from the stupidity that seems to be plaguing the Romney campaign. However, it really does nothing to weaken the President, much to the dismay of the GOP.
If you’re not convinced this is a concerted effort to strike fear into the hearts of Americans, consider this. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, the Neocon who should never again be trusted with any foreign policy decisions, tweeted: “The attacks on our embassies & diplomats are a result of perceived American weakness. Mitt Romney is right to point that out.” Pretty ironic how all these criticisms of the Obama administration happened simultaneously in the wake of the violence they all predicted would ensue in the Muslim world. It is really a sad ploy to gin up support of another war of aggression with Islam. Now Netanyahu seems determined, more than ever, to alienate the President of the United States and, as an ally of Mitt Romney’s campaign, to make himself a factor in the 2012 election.
Exactly SEVEN WEEKS before the 2008 election, the Koch Brothers helped promote an anti-Muslim film entitled Obsession: Radical Islam’s War Against the West. It appears the Romney campaign along with his right wing Israeli friend are in collusion to win this White House by injecting more fear of the Islamic world and inciting a march towards an inevitable war with Iran. The choice of exploiting a low-budget film to further their objectives makes them seem quite desperate. History repeats itself, and it appears the outcome will be the same. The American people will choose a diplomatic Barack Obama over a right-wing, war-obsessed, fear-mongering GOP candidate. Willard Romney, the GOP and Netanyahu will all come out looking as foolish as they’ve behaved.
