Sadly, Obama probably agrees, it’s our fault.
EL-ARISH, Egypt – U.S. diplomatic compounds came under attack in two Muslim countries on Tuesday, with the walls of the embassy in Cairo breached by protesters and a consulate in Libya under attack by militants.
A group of protesters scaled the wall of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo on Tuesday evening and entered its outer grounds, pulled down an American flag, then tried to burn it outside the embassy walls, according to witnesses. In Benghazi, Libya, the consulate was attacked by militants, and Libyan and American officials were working to secure the compound, a State Department spokeswoman said. […]
Earlier Tuesday, the U.S. Embassy in Egypt had condemned insults to religion, saying in a statement that “we firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”
A spokesman for the Muslim Brotherhood, of which Morsi is a member, said that the United States should do a better job of protecting Islam.
“It isn’t a matter of freedom of speech,” said Muslim Brotherhood spokesman Mahmoud Gozlan. “It’s a matter of a holy Islamic symbol.”
