Keep in mind the source of this video above, RT, is Russia Today and in itself is a propaganda machine as well. I have not been able to prove it, but I highly suspect that RT is somehow connected to Rupert Murdoch (News Corporation), because it has all the trademarks of FOX news. Albeit, the entire spectrum of Mass Media has been perpetuating the lie that an Anti-Islam movie is the source of the mayhem across Muslim countries. This is a sentiment that I do not support. I did some tweeting over the weekend of headlines just prior to the US embassy attack in Benghazi that leads me to believe that the source of the new wave of uprising is due to heavy loss of innocent lives was caused to Drone attacks, executed by the US (illegally). This is one aspect of a greater and deeper coordinated attack on American xenophobia.
Mass Media Fueling the Flames
Every mainstream media source I’ve heard or read from the first day until over the weekend continues to attribute the riots, attacks, and protesting on the film, “Innocence of Muslims;” a crude, poorly directed, and cheaply produced “movie” about Muhammad. The media leaves out the fact that the United States has been using drones to attack Al Qaeda in many of these countries where the protesting is starting. Also, the US via NATO, is also the source of sowing discord among the various factions of Islam within those countries to set them in motion for overthrowing the government that is in charge. The US lies to the “rebels” and tells them that if they overthrow their own leaders “organically” without the US obvious help at some point in time the UN or world at large will beg the US to intervene and then they will come in and support the opposition, but what ends up happening is something entirely different.
Case in point: Egypt. Egyptian rebels and separatists were encouraged to rise up against Mubarak. Why? The US has/had a working relationship with this country and probably couldn’t just back out without due cause. The people rose up, the government of Mubarak was removed, but rather than allowing the Muslims establish their own country the way they wanted, using Islamic Rule, rather than a Democracy or a Republic such as the US, they (The US) installed their own crony and seized control once again via military. This has infuriated the youth and those who were promised to have their own country. Mubarak was already in the US pocket and was helping to keep the peace between the radicals and Israel in that portion of the country. Why remove him? He was actually protecting the Christians as well. Since Mubarak was removed the persecution of Christians rose and is not stopping. You can see the same scenario play out in Iraq, Sudan, Libya, etc. It appears that our US government is the one igniting the wild fire.
Here’s an Example: (Egypt)
“Coptic Christians have been in Egypt for thousands of years. During Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule, they were often excluded from government, but their religious leader Pope Shenouda III publicly endorsed and campaigned for Mubarak. In exchange, the Muslim Mubarak passed laws favored by the church, like this strict divorce law that applied only to Christians. In return, the dictator had the reluctant backing of Egypt’s 8 million Copts.
But even though Shenouda continued to support Mubarak throughout the uprisings, many Christians took part in the Tahrir Square protests.
This year, even before Mubarak was deposed, Coptic Christians were the target of a suicide bombing. Just last week, 26 died during violent protests that were sparked by an attack on a Cairo church.
With Mubarak gone, Egypt’s Copts lost a protector.”
The Christian community in Iraq is one of the oldest in the region, dating back about 2,000 years, well before the introduction of Islam.
Since the start of the Iraq war in 2003, however, much the community has fled the country, diminishing its population within Iraq’s borders by about half.
Under Saddam Hussein, Iraq was ruled by the Baath party, a secular government. Hussein himself was a Sunni Muslim; Sunni Muslims comprise about 35 percent of Iraqis.
Since Hussein’s government was a minority government. Other minorities, including Christians, “felt much more protected under the Hussein regime than they do currently,” says Brian Katulis of the Center for American Progress.
Syria is a minority rule system, with Shia Alawite Muslims — who comprise only a small percentage of the population — wielding the most power, and with the Druze, Ismailis and Christians also playing important roles.
As the rest of the world turns on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who is an Alawite, Syria’s Christian population is steadfastly pulling for the dictator – and has for years.
What’s in it for them?
Christians get “very good business contracts, positions in government and the Syrian military,” says Andrew Tabler of The Washington Institute. “They get preferential treatment and protection of their places of worship.”
Because of this, Syria’s Christians have access to scholarships and opportunities to study abroad.
What’s in it for Assad?
For one thing, Syria’s Christians are “some of the most strident supporters of Assad,” according to Tabler. “They’re bridges to other countries and the international community. Assad thinks that helps the broader public perception of his regime.”
How does Assad keep them loyal?
The regime stokes fear of Muslim violence among the Christian minority. Tabler says “It’s part of priming the pump. In Syria they do this by spreading fears (among Christians) that Islamists want to kill them … It’s an old divide and rule tactic.”

In Libya and in other countries where these protests and riots are happening there are counter rallies. There are people lifting up handmade signs showing support for America, and condemning the attacks. There are people who do not wish to be bombed into annihilation over the attacks on the embassies. The angst in the US is and has been fostered to be one of anti-Islam as well. I hate to admit that the lefties have one right but they do. When I heard this weekend one commentator state that this issue is not a political one, “Remember,” he said, “On September 11th 2001 we were attacked while President George W. Bush was in office so it was not something that had to do with political party.” True. The attack on the USS Cole happened on Clinton’s watch, I remember that. I remember being perplexed at the fact that two guys on a boat could get that close to a US Carrier and attack our ship that way. Hmmm, I hope the US government is not “allowing” by default not protecting us on credible information, simply to use these attacks as “opportunities” to twist them to their own self seeking gain!
How the Church is fueling the flames as well
Sine September 11th there has been a thwarted effort within the church (Christian Church at large in the US) to feed propaganda to American Christians. I’ve heard the false teachers, the shysters who are quick to sell a book by banking on our fears and our own patriotism, that the evil Muslim people are hell bent to kill all of America. I’ve heard it with my own ears and seen it with my own eyes, various movies, books, speakers, all spouting that there is a movement within the Islamic world to bring forth a Caliphate and they will stop at nothing to kill every blue eyed blonde haired red blooded American in their sleep if the US “Church” doesn’t rise up to stop them. I will go as far as to say that there are a few “generals” and “knights” who have had their sole purpose to militarize the American Christian. These people have swords in their logos and crests and terminology that leads you to believe you need to be signed up for the Christian Army (if we had one they’d sign up in a heartbeat) and arm themselves for battle.
The Corrupt US Government and the Apostate Church Working in conjunction will spell Ethnic Wars abroad and at home, S-O-O-N.
If you stop to consider that the “Axis of Evil” and those “Dictators” were actually staving off full blown Christian Persecution you might ask yourself, “Why then would the US government (the one that claims to be “Christian” based) seek to remove protection of the Christians there to allow the people of those countries in turn to place an Islamic Rule based Government? Could it be, as I have suggested already, that the corrupt US government is actually facilitating the “divide and rule” ideology?
Never mind what doctrine says, “Let’s roll,” is the sentiment. We battle not against flesh and blood brethren. (Ephesians 6:12)
” And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” Matthew 10:28
US drone strike ‘kills 16′ in Pakistan- http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-19368433
“Drone attacks frequently target Pakistan’s restive tribal areas, where many insurgents have taken shelter.
The frequency of the attacks has increased since President Barack Obama took office in 2009.
A number of militants, some of them senior, have been killed in the raids, but many civilians have also died.”

Pakistan deaths in ‘US drone strike’– http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia/2012/07/201272914340207132.html
“There has been a dramatic increase in US drone strikes in Pakistan since May, when a NATO summit in Chicago could not strike a deal to end a six-month blockade on convoys transporting supplies to coalition forces in Afghanistan.
Washington regards Pakistan’s semi-autonomous northwestern tribal belt as the main hub of Taliban and Al-Qaeda fighters plotting attacks on the West and in Afghanistan.
Drone strikes are likely to be a major issue discussed by Pakistan’s spymaster, Lieutenant General Zaheer ul-Islam, and his CIA counterpart, when the former visits Washington on August 1-3.
Islam’s trip on Wednesday marks the first Washington visit in a year by the head of Pakistan’s Inter-Services Intelligence and signals a thaw in relations beset by crisis since US troops killed Osama bin Laden near Islamabad in May 2011.
On July 3 however, Islamabad agreed to end the blockade after the US apologized for the deaths of 24 Pakistani soldiers in botched air strikes last November.
In protest at US drone attacks, local Taliban and Pakistani warlord Hafiz Gul Bahadur have banned vaccinations in North and South Waziristan, putting 240,000 children in the region at risk.
They have condemned the immunization campaign as a cover for espionage. In May, a Pakistani doctor was jailed for 33 years after helping the CIA find bin Laden using a hepatitis vaccination program as a cover.”

*Just as a side note, because I’m so infuriated with this it bears repeating at least to those who aren’t brainwashed. From day one, even on 9-11-2012 when I put up my post on remembering 9-11, I had tied the link between the US government’s use of CIA and black ops in the countries where we are now seeing all this chaos. One the day (late evening) of the Embassy attacks, rather that Tuesday morning following, the Glenn Beck site, “The Blaze,” was already quickly pumping out propaganda that the sole reason for the upheavel was the (fake) film. Now, Glenn Beck has had an epiphany and is touting his “intel” that leads him to believe that this was and has been a “coordinated” attack. He’s a liar and he’s used by the same people the MSM take their orders from. This man makes me sick with his propaganda. Sure, now he is on the right track but it’s not because he has any “discernment” nor is it even his “intel;” but rather, this man is handed a script to read and other people tell him what to say. The same people who tweeted his Blaze stories within the first days are now awe struck and sickened at his suggestion that this was “OUR” (the US Government’s) doing. Well, grab a notepad folks and do some of your own research. You’ll find that GB takes his truth lives here serum from other websites. Don’t think for a second that this guy doesn’t have trolls meandering the web and social media for his “intel.” Anyway, Please, if you’re a Beckbot–consider a fast and get away long enough from him to test his spirit.
