Dear readers,

This past Tuesday, September 11, 2012, as our nation solemnly remembered the brutal Islamist attack on our nation eleven years ago, our U.S. Ambassador to Libya was assassinated and our embassy in Cairo was stormed by violent Islamists. Even though both countries have now spoken out against the attacks, their silence during the violence made them passively complicit in the abhorrent actions by their people. In particular, Egyptian President Morsi’s lengthy delay in condemning the attack on our embassy was completely unacceptable.

What was the “excuse” for the violence? A movie about the Prophet Mohammed.

Even worse, the initial response by our own nation to the Cairo attack was an apology by the U.S. Embassy. It read in part: “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims—as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions.” (Note: We were going to include a link to the full original statement here, but it’s mysteriously no longer available!)

This is shameful. The American people know better, and so should those who speak for us.

In fact, the response by our embassy was SO appalling, that the White House was forced to issue a disavowal stating, “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.” See HERE for more on the issue.

It is CRITICAL that we speak with ONE VOICE to let the Administration and the U.S. Congress know that we will no longer tolerate sending our tax dollars to Egypt and Libya until this latest attack is addressed to the satisfaction of our nation and until the regimes in both countries can prove that they will not use the funds to further jihadist causes. Though the leaders have now condemned the attacks in their countries, we don’t find those responses to be strong enough or timely enough to warrant the gift of hard-earned taxpayer money.

Enough is enough!

These recent violent incidents are reminiscent of the 1979 Iranian attacks on our embassy, and of the Muslim violence resulting from Danish cartoonists’ depictions of Mohammed.

Further, the attacks in Egypt and Libya are taking place at the same time that Egyptian President (Muslim Brotherhood candidate), Mohammed Morsi is scheduled to arrive in the U.S. and meet with President Obama. They are occurring at the same time our own State Department is assisting efforts to curtail free speech through their participation in the Istanbul Process and U.N. Resolution 16/18 (more on that issue in future e-mails).

And of all dates—these most recent attacks on our embassies took place on September 11th. The symbolism couldn’t be any more blatant.

The important question, though, is this: What kind of response will come from the American citizenry? Will we be silent—or will we speak up?

A 1-minute phone call by you about this matter—magnified by 240,000 other ACT! for America activists will make a tremendous noise that the U.S. Congress will have NO OPTION but to hear. Will you join us?

Our federal leaders need to clearly understand that the American people will hold them accountable—especially at the voting booths this November—if they reward the reprehensible behavior within these two countries by giving them your hard-earned tax dollars.

 

We must say “NO.”
