Jay Carney, Obama’s press secretary, says the protests are not directed at the US but is in response to an offensive movie. Simplistic conclusion!
Did he not know they are chanting for the demise of the United States? Did he not know they have a four foot poster directed at Americans? Or that the targets were US Embassies?
CARNEY: We also need to understand that this is a fairly volatile situation and it is in response not to United States policy, and not to, obviously, the administration, or the American people, but it is in response to a video, a film that we have judged to be be reprehensible and disgusting. That in no way justifies any violent reaction to it, but this is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims.
Again, this is not in any way justifying violence, and we have spoken very clearly out against that and condemned it. And the president is making sure in his conversations with leaders around the region that they are committed as hosts to diplomatic facilities to protect both personnel and buildings and other facilities that are part of the U.S. representation in those countries.
Several studies have shown that hatred of the United States is quite common. They are using the film as a pretext.
Kenneth Timmerman interviews top Islamic sages, and "moderates" of the Muslim world… Unfathomable hatred of the Jews and of the U.S has been indoctrinated to the susceptible minds of Islamic youth.
