Speaking on the Spanish-language Univision television station yesterday, President Obama explained that it was not clear the attacks on the embassies were terrorism:
“What we do know is that the natural protests that arose over the outrage over the video were used as an excuse by extremists to see if they could also directly harm U.S. interests” (emphasis added).
Does Obama really believe that people naturally protest obscure videos made more than half way around the world by unknown people and posted to youtube? Imagine Jews launched massive protests for every anti-Semitic youtube video.
Indeed, as was reported by JewishPress.com, the Egyptian talk show host who decided to turn the “Innocence of Muslims” video into a cause celebre is himself an extremist.
Perhaps its time for a President who isn’t an apologist for radical Islam.Daniel Tauber
