The storming of the U.S. embassy in Cairo on the eleventh anniversary of the 9/11 attacks is not coincidental, despite the claims made by those behind it – as well as the liberal western media – that it was in response to an anti-Muslim film released in the U.S. Arabic sources, once translated, again tell the real story.
On September 10th, advertisements that encouraged people to join in the protests of the film were in abundance.
The idea came from the Nour Salafist party’s Ahmed Khalil and Nadder Bakkar. Here is a rough translation:
Nour Party announced in a statement on the official facebook page of the party, support for participation in the vigil held in front of the U.S. embassy on the fifth evening (Tuesday) to condemn the film for offending the Prophet (peace be upon him) on American television. The Engineer Jalal, once Secretary-General of the party, said that a number of party leaders are taking part in the vigil, led by Dr. Ahmed Khalil and Nader Bakkar, in addition to members of the party from the various provinces.”
This was sent out one day before the 9/11 anniversary. So we can conclude that the agitation was started days before, then advertised on September 10 to turn out on September 11th specifically.
Yet, all this had nothing to do with the sarcastic film about Muhammad.
I find no reason as to why 9/11 was chosen as a date to attack two U.S. Embassies (Egypt and Libya). This is not a Box Office movie. I haven’t examined the source of the movie but I saw some parts of it.
The Arabic sources show that this was in support of al-Qaeda day, posting al-Qaeda flags and some of the chanting was about reminding Americans that there are many al-Qaedas (ie Nour Party). Americans should ask themselves a hard question:
If our enemy is al-Qaeda exclusively, then why is an entire political party – which makes up over 20% of Egypt’s new Parliament – aligning with al-Qaeda?
Attacks on U.S. Embassies had very little to do with the latest film and much more to do with the old story of the Muhammad Cartoon and the failure of Muslims to prosecute internationally the culprits who drew the Muhammad cartoons.
This will be another attempt to change the laws globally.
The evidence comes from straight the horse's mouth (time for a short talking horse video):
Ok, quit horsing around; we need to talk about something important.
Wisam Abdul Waris of Dar Al-Hekma (House of Wisdom) – about whom the Nour Salafist party announced publicly that its call to demonstrate was in support of – began a call to push for the passage of laws to be placed in the Egyptian Constitution – as well as internationally – that would make it illegal to criticize Islam.
Here is the call (the man to the left of the main speaker is NOT Adam Sandler): Wisam’s words translated are:
We have moved to review with Mr. Rifai all the legal procedures today by which we created The Voice of Wisdom Coalition (I’itilaf Sawt al-Hekma); it will hold accountable everyone who insults Islam locally and internationally, in accordance with every country’s laws. We all know the problems Yasser Al-Habib had in London and after that in Berlin… in Germany, an extremist group was allowed to publicize cartoons that insult the prophet in front of the Salafist Mosque in Berlin, through a legal decision. So what we did was to ask Sharabi Mahmoud to reject this legal decision on behalf of the Egyptian people who are Muslim; for this reason, we created this coalition. We also made an official request from the Church in Egypt to issue a public announcement, to state it has nothing to do with this deed.
Then you have the official statements from the Nour Salafist party, which announces an official partnering with this call.
It had no reference to the current movie, which means that they simply searched for anything to use as an excuse. They could find nothing major except a satirical video.
Of course, you have daily satires in the United States about Muhammad that technically should be considered far worse.
This demonstration was about one thing – creating havoc to apply pressure that would lead to a change in Egyptian Constitution by Nour:
Salafi Nour Party officially joined the Commonwealth of ‘voice of wisdom’ with Wisam Abdul Waris, as well as with Nader Bakkar, the party’s official spokesman and Dr. Ahmed Khalil Khairallah, member of the supreme body.
Ahmed Khalil of the supreme body and I joined the Association of the voice of wisdom with Dr. Wisam Abdul Waris as official representatives from Nour Party and the Salafist call.
Bakkar then added that the association…
…aims for legal prosecution for anyone of harm to Islam at home and abroad.
Bakkar said the following in remarks on his personal facebook page:
…after the movie that abused the Prophet (peace be upon him), none will dare object to our determination to put an article in the constitution that criminalizes insults of the divine through portrayal or animation of the prophet, His companions, and all His House and mothers of the believers… this is the least we can do.”
In other words, the persistence of Muslims in the past to pass legislation, both internationally and locally, is the reason why they orchestrated this demonstration in which an American was killed in Libya.
How the Libyan Muslims were also able to wreak havoc through community organizing-style agitation is the next part of my investigation.
With video of Egyptians removing the American flag while carrying the black al-Qaeda flags reminding Americans “we are all al-Qaeda” and on 9/11 inside the Embassy compound is a clear message to remind Americans that 9/11 is not over.
To boot, they think they can get Americans to believe that doing so had nothing to do with 9/11 and everything to do with this video:
Americans, can you feel that finger poking you in the chest yet?
In light of the stated reason – in Arabic – for the storming of the U.S. Embassy, it’s worth revisiting this exchange between Rep. Trent Franks (R-AZ) – one of the five congressmen who expressed concern about Muslim Brotherhood infiltration of the U.S. Government and Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General (AAG) for the Civil Rights Division at the Department of Justice. Notice that Perez would not answer Franks’ question about whether Perez would unequivocally state that there would be no attempt by the Obama administration to criminalize speech against any religion.
From July of this year…
