The administration’s apologetic response to the attack on the U.S. embassy in Egypt reflects a governmentwide policy to censor language offensive to Islam.
As angry Muslim mobs stormed the American compound in Cairo Tuesday to allegedly protest an obscure anti-Muhammad video produced in California, embassy officials issued a statement condemning the “efforts of misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.”
Why would U.S. diplomats apologize to violent Muslims, on of all days 9/11, for America’s sacred right of free speech? They were following a new protocol negotiated between Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the Saudi-based Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), an alliance of 56 Muslim nations.
In December, Clinton met behind closed doors in Washington with OIC officials to hammer out “mechanisms” for enforcing a U.N. resolution the administration signed to fight “Islamophobia” in America and other Western nations.
The three-day session was closed to the public.
