BREAKING : Yemenis Storm U.S. Embassy in Sana’a, One Killed, Dozens Wounded

Anger like this is not without cause:  Time for U.S. to close down all embassies in Middle East until further notice; Marine Security Guard Detachments need to be reinforced in existing embassies with far more aggressive ROE, security command transfer from Ambassador to MSG Command now necessary

A Yemeni protester has been killed by security forces in the capital, Sana’a, during a demonstration against a blasphemous anti-Islam movie produced by an Israeli-American in the United States.


On Thursday, Yemeni protesters stormed the US embassy in the capital.

The victim was killed when the security forces opened fire on the furious demonstrators.

Police also used water cannons to disperse the protesters.

Dozens of demonstrators were also injured.

Reports say the protesters set a number of diplomatic cars on fire.

On September 11, demonstrators in Libya attacked the US consulate building in the city of Benghazi, protesting against the movie, named Innocence of Muslims. US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three consulate staff members were killed in the incident.
In Egypt, a similar demonstration was also held on September 10.

Thousands of Egyptians gathered in front of the US embassy in Cairo, scaled the walls of the embassy, pulled down the US flag, and called for the expulsion of the US ambassador to Egypt.

Washington has been evacuating most of its diplomatic staff from Libya to Germany following the attack.

US President Barack Obama has also ordered diplomatic missions in other countries to step up security.

Outrage is growing across the Muslim world over the $5-million movie that was financed by more than 100 Jews.

MARINES NOT STATIONED AT BENGHAZI BY CLINTON STATE DEPARTMENT

Had the Marine Security Guard been in residence, the Ambassador and his staff would still be alive and the Marines hardening their positions after what would have been a low-level threat event; Clinton and her State Department are responsible for the deaths and so is Obama as her superior; Obama's bogus "tough guy" posturing, sending Marines after the fact will not - repeat - will not cover up this debacle

The consulate where the American ambassador to Libya was killed on Tuesday is an “interim facility” not protected by the contingent of Marines that safeguards embassies, Politico has learned.



Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed with three other Americans in an attack on the U.S. consulate in the city of Benghazi, where Libyan rebels ousted strongman Moammar Qadhafi last year.


Marine Corps spokeswoman Capt. Kendra Motz said that Marines were not posted to the consulate, unlike the embassy in the capital, Tripoli.

WAYNE MADESN : Update 1x. A 9/11 Anniversary Israeli Provocation

The truth begins to materialize

WAYNE MADSEN REPORT
By Wayne Madsen
09/14/2012

There is very little difference between Los Angeles-based Israeli real estate developer Sam Bacile and the five "dancing Israelis" who were arrested by New Jersey police in the hours after the 9/11 attack. The infamous "dancing Israelis" were discovered to have Arab-style clothing in their Urban Moving System Systems van, searched by New Jersey police and FBI agents hours after the Israelis were witnessed at Liberty State Park in Jersey City "high-fiving" each other after they filmed the first aircraft strike the North Tower of the World Trade Center.


Netanyahu obviously behind anti-Islam movie, date of release
On the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Bacile released on YouTube a 13-minute trailer for a two hour anti-Muslim short movie, titled "Innocence of Muslims," depicting the Prophet Mohammed as insane, a fraud, and as a sex pervert. A donkey is portrayed as the "first Muslim animal." Israel's signature in the production of the movie is clear. Israeli propagandists often use animals to depict those most revered by Muslims and Christians. The recent painting of graffiti stating "Jesus in a monkey" on a Trappist monastery in Jerusalem has not been fully investigated by the Israeli government, which includes in its coalition Orthodox Jewish political parties that are vehemently anti-Christian and Muslim.

In an interview with The Times of Israel, Bacile echoed the anti-Christian nature of Netanyahu's political allies in stating, "The main problem is I am the first one to put on the screen someone who is (portraying) Muhammad. It makes them mad,” Bacile said. “But we have to open the door. After 9/11 everybody should be in front of the judge, even Jesus, even Muhammad.” Bacile further riled up Muslims with his statement: "Islam is a cancer, period."

Anti-American riots broke out in Egypt and Libya and rioters stormed the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the American consulate in Benghazi. U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, who formerly was the U.S. representative to the Libyan National Transition Council that overthrew Muammar Qaddafi, was killed along with four other U.S. diplomatic personnel, by rioters.



Alcoholic, Koran burning, Christian fundamentalist psycho Terry Jones finally went too far, should be prosecuted for role in film release, held responsible for deaths, executed, his "church" disbanded
 
An on-line statement posted by the U.S. embassy in Cairo stated the embassy "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims — as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.” Under pressure from Republicans, the Obama White House has disavowed embassy's statement. GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney criticized the embassy statement as being "disgraceful" and suggested that it sympathized with those who stormed the U.S. embassy.

Bacile said he received financing for the movie from 100 Jewish donors. It is not known whether the donors included Las Vegas casino tycoon Sheldon Adelson. The gambling magnate has pumped tens of millions of dollars into the campaigns of Republican candidates, including the pro-Israel Newt Gingrich and Romney, Binyamin Netanyahu's friend and one-time colleague at the Boston Consulting Group. The release of the movie clip on YouTube comes amid the refusal of the White House to meet with Netanyahu during his visit to the United States at the end of the month. Netanyahu has attempted to box in the Obama administration by claiming Obama has pressured Israel not to launch a pre-election military attack on Iran.



Snake-handler Mitt Romney may have just blown presidential bid
The movie's production costs were around $5 million. Bacile is unapologetic about the consequences of his movie. Bacile blamed the attacks and deaths of American diplomats on poor U.S. embassy security. Bacile claims he doesn't know who dubbed his video clip into Arabic. Israel's immense propaganda apparatus is more than capable of translating English into Arabic and vice versa, often incorrectly in order to achieve maximum propaganda value.

The film's production also involves Florida "pastor" Terry Jones, the infamous self-styled Christian evangelist who threatened to burn the Koran in 2010. Jones, the head of the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida, canceled his plans to burn Islam's holy book after the commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, General David Petraeus, said the act would endanger U.S. military forces in Afghanistan. However, anti-American demonstrations broke out throughout Afghanistan and at the U.S. embassy in Jakarta, Indonesia. However, in 2011, Jones did burn the Koran at his Gainesville "church" after he held a "trial" for the book.

In 2005, the Danish paper Jyllands Posten published a number of cartoons that irreverently depicted the Prophet Mohammed, including one that showed Mohammed wearing a turban and throwing a bomb. Anti-Danish and anti-Western riots broke out around the world and the violence resulted in a number of deaths in Afghanistan, India, and Benghazi, Libya. On January 5, 2010, WMR reported: "The editor who was instrumental in publishing the cartoons is the cultural editor of the Aarhus-based Jyllands-Posten, Flemming Rose, who worked in Washington, DC as a correspondent of the Copenhagen newspaper Berlingske Tidende. He has been a habitué of the neocon citadel in Washington, the American Enterprise Institute (AEI). Rose has denied being Jewish."

Bacile stated, "Islam is a cancer, period." Israeli propaganda outlets have also tried to suggest that the anti-Islam movie was partly the work of Egyptian Coptic Christians, which is clearly an attempt to stoke the flames of inter-religious warfare in Egypt between the majority Muslim population and the country's 10 percent Coptic minority. Leaders of Egypt's Copts have denied any association with the Israeli propaganda movie, although Bacile's propaganda film involves Morris Sadek, an expatriate Egyptian Copt.

Romney and other Republicans wasted no time in attacking President Obama in what appears to be a replay of the 1979-80 U.S. hostage situation at the American embassy in Tehran. The Iran hostage situation was used by the Reagan-Bush campaign to embarrass President Jimmy Carter and contributed to Carter's defeat in a landslide in the 1980s presidential election. It was later discovered that members of the Reagan campaign, including George H.W. Bush, secretly negotiated with Iran to keep the American hostages until after the November presidential election.

Adelson funds a number of Israeli media outlets that are playing up Obama's perceived "weakness" in dealing with the anti-American riots in Cairo and Benghazi. Chief among the outlets is the pro-Netanyahu paper Israel HaYom, which is distributed free throughout Israel. In its coverage of the anti-U.S. riots in Egypt and Cairo, Adelson's paper tried to link Bacile's movie to anti-Muslim Christians instead of Israel. A September 12 article in the newspaper stated: "A group of women in black veils and robes that left only their eyes exposed chanted 'Worshippers of the Cross, leave the Prophet Muhammad alone.'"

Abraham Foxman, the head of the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), which often pressures YouTube to remove video clips that are considered anti-Semitic, has been silent on the "Innocence of Muslims" movie and its Jewish financial backers.

One person who is not silent is Kristen Breitweiser, whose husband was killed in the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center. In a September 12 article in the Huffington Post, titled, "Libyan Consulate Attack: Who's to Blame?" Breitweiser asks the question that many are posing: "Who are the alleged 'over 100 Jewish donors' who financed this film? Will they be sending their condolences to the families of the four Americans killed because of their film? Will they in any way be publicly held accountable for their support of this film and its message?" Breitweiser's question is important. Revealing the list of the Jewish donors will go a long way in identifying the culprits behind this most recent Israeli provocation, timed to coincide with the 9/11 anniversary. Breitweiser points to the obvious element of the anti-Muslim provocation: "In effect, in my opinion, somebody 'pushed' this film out there to incite and spread hatred and rage in the Middle East on September 11th, and the identity of the person or organization behind this plot should be exposed and held accountable."

5TH ESTATE ANALYSIS : FACTS SURROUNDING THE RELEASE OF ANTI - ISLAM PORNOGRAPHIC MOVIE AND THE AFTERMATH

The issue of the Marine Corps Security Guard at the Libyan embassy will be addressed at a later date

The 5th Estate
By Robert S. Finnegan and Imas Kurniawati
09/14/2012

Analysis - The facts as we know them to date:

1.  On September 11, You Tube allowed the posting of a 5 million dollar budget movie trailer depicting the Prophet Mohammed in a sleazy and highly slanderous light, when in fact the so-called "movie" should never have been broadcast anywhere.  The originator is now in hiding.


2.  As a result of this broadcasting, the U.S. embassies in Benghazi, Libya and Cairo Egypt were attacked by mobs under the mistaken impression that the U.S. was the originator.

3.  The movie was the creation of a dual Israeli-American and financed by insane hard-line Christian fundamentalist religious groups in America and Zionist Jewish groups in Israel.  There is definite possibility of Mossad involvement.

4.  On the same day, news media worldwide had reported that Obama would not meet with Netanyahu during the latter's recent trip to America.

5.  Four Americans, including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya were killed at the embassy in Libya.  The Ambassador had two children, who now suffer for the sins of their parents, as always.  They are completely innocent.  The same goes for the children of the Libyans killed in the incident.

6.  This production was designed to incite violence in the Muslim world, possibly throwing the U.S. presidential election, enraging the U.S. population and opening the door for U.S. government support for an invasion of Iran.

7.  The U.S. response from the Obama administration has so far been one of further confrontation rather than genuine dialog.  This is exactly what Netanyahu wants for his insistence on invading Iran.  The Weapons (RPG's) used in the attack on the Libyan U.S. embassy were most likely the very same weapons provided to the Libyan "rebels" by the American CIA.

Our Views:

1.  You Tube was obviously complicit and should be shut down until this is sorted out, the individuals responsible arrested and prosecuted for murder:  5 million U.S. dollars DOES NOT constitute the cost of an "amature" film and You Tube damn well knows this, being in the business of reproducing films and having already pulled THOUSANDS of "questionable" videos negating any claim to opposing or being a victim of censorship;  free speech rights do not include murder;

2.  A sincere dialog must be established between the Muslim world and the Western powers, in particular, the United States;

3.  All violence must cease immediately before further lives are tragically lost on both sides;

4.  The originator of this film who is now in hiding should be hunted down, prosecuted and executed, along with all involved in the financing and production of this so-called film;

5.  Should the Israeli government be found complicit, those identified as involved must be brought up on Crimes Against Humanity charges, delivered up to and prosecuted at the Hague;

 6.  Sane Muslims and Christians must begin to reach out to each other to prevent tragic events such as this from occurring in the future;

7.  Muslims worldwide must realize that this travesty is not the responsibility of the majority of the American people, who are repulsed by this incident;

8.  The American people must realize that the actions of the rioters are not representative of the teachings of Islam and the vast majority of peaceful Muslims;

9.  This insanity must end, and it must end now;

10. The responsibility for this rests solely on the United States State Department and Hillary Clinton;

11.  And finally as horrible, unfair and unthinkable as it sounds, perhaps all Muslims should consider leaving the United States - immigrant and citizen alike - until such time as the government regains it's sanity and recognizes that we are all Americans, with unalienable rights as guaranteed us by our Constitution.


The 5th Estate will continuously report on this as the facts of the case are confirmed.

“The Truth means responsibility, which is exactly why everyone dreads it.  If there is no way out, it is imperative to find a further way in.  Now more than ever in U.S. history, Americans are shielding their eyes against the painful truth…. As for myself, I am capable of knowing and willing to know the whole truth, to know the worst, accept it, and then ACT ON IT.”
