The Middle East protests continue to rage and spread through twenty countries on Jihad Friday. Barack Obama and his administration continues to try to blame the anti-Islam film, The Innocence of Muslims, for the cause. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton even raised the issue again during her remarks at the ceremony of the Libya victims bodies being returned on Friday. But there is growing evidence that Al Qaeda and associated terror groups were planning this long before. The movie trailer only became posted on the Internet in July while the previous month, June, saw several attacks in Benghazi by radical militants, including an IED being tossed at our consulate. The same which was overrun and burned this past Tuesday.

PJMedia has also noted that two to four days before 9/11, several Al Qaeda and radical Islamic websites calling for the U.S. embassy in Cairo to be attacked and burned to the ground unless the United States releases all Islamic prisoners being held. They specifically mentioned detainees at Guantanamo Bay as well as Omar Abdul Rahman, the ′Blind Sheikh′, who was a plotter in the 1993 bombing attack on the World Trade Center in New York City.

Yet, the Obama administration continues to belch out this nonsense about a silly movie being responsible. White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, towed the administration line, or lie, again on Friday, refuting questions from reporters about the attacks even possibly being connected merely to the date, of September 11. This, despite the fact that we know that the brothers of both the Blind Sheikh and that of Al Qaeda leader, Anwar Al-Zawahri, were amongst the crowd outside the US embassy in Cairo on Tuesday with the protesters. Even the Libyan government closed their airspace after attacking two U.S. drones which entered their airspace.

The growing anti-American, anti-West protests we are witnessing throughout the entire Muslim world are clearly not about some dopey movie, but about U.S. policy and more so, about Western Civilization in general. Radical Islamists have no love for our way of life. They oppose practically everything we do. Furthermore, as often noted here, this is part of their own mystical mythology of bringing about the 12th Imam, the Mahdi who will rally all Muslims in Jihad against Israel and the West in a final, global showdown. As I have said before, this mythology became popular after a book was published in the 1980s which was inspired by the old Hal Lindsay book, ″The Late Great Planet Earth.″ So if Obama, Clinton and Carney want to blame somebody, they should be blaming that old book instead of the anti-Islam movie, The Innocence of Muslims.
