A wave of American pogroms swept through countries of the victorious Arab revolution. In Libya, the Islamists seized the US embassy, ​​killing an official and wounding several staff. In Egypt, a crowd of protesters stormed the US consulate and burned the Stars and Stripes. All this occurred against the background of renewed attempts at negotiations between the US and the Islamic terrorist groups. What was the reason for such aggravation this time?

No “Wow!”

In the Libyan city of Benghazi, known as the capital of the recent revolution, the unthinkable happened – a crowd of angry Islamists attacked the US consulate. The attack started with a shot from a grenade launcher, which hit one of the embassy’s windows. Islamists then broke into the consulate and sacked it. As a result, a U.S. embassy official was killed in the skirmish and another suffered burns. Police failed to counter the attack, and the diplomatic mission was looted. At the time of this writing the material unrest continues in Benghazi, clashes with security forces are held in different parts of the city.

Hillary Clinton, speaking to reporters, “condemned such acts of violence,” saying that “there is no excuse for such cruelty.” Recall that Mrs. Clinton is known for many statements justifying cruelty around the world, from the famous «Wow!», uttered on the murder of Gaddafi, to concealment of facts surrounding the slaughter of innocent civilians by the Syrian militants.

A day earlier, the American consulate in Egypt was besieged by a crowd of about 3,000 people. Protesters tore down and burned the American Stars and Stripes, hoisting in its place a black flag with the Shahada (the creed – a inscription in Arabic: “There is no God but Allah, and Muhammad is his messenger”). According to some evidence, to restore order police were forced to open fire on the Islamists. Victim data has not been released yet.

Another provocation

What caused the wrath of Islamists this time? It is reported that protesters in Cairo rioted against the upcoming film “Muhammad, the Muslim prophet,” which ​​contained, in their view, offensive slander. Supposedly the infamous Pastor Terry Jones of Florida was involved in the creation of the film. The same one who had previously deliberately burned the Quran outside his church. Recall that this trick of his caused a wave of protests in Afghanistan that resulted in over 100 people dead, including several staff members of the UN mission, who were literally torn apart by the angry mob.

The film has not been released yet, and only its trailer is available on the Internet, translated into Arabic. Creators of the film said that they were not involved in the translation. They allegedly regret what happened, but do not give up plans to release 200-hour series of “Muhammad, the Muslim prophet.”

As for the massacre in Libya, its cause is still unclear. Some media also links it with the release of the trailer, but there is no evidence to support this yet.

Interestingly, this provocation took place in the wake of wide spread reporting by mass media of a truce proposal, made by Islamic terrorists to the United States. Thus, our earlier suggestion that such offers will be sabotaged has proved correct even faster than we expected.

On the anniversary of the 9-11 terrorist attack in the US, Al-Qaeda, in the words of its leader’s brother, offered a truce to Western countries. A little earlier, a similar proposal was made by the representatives of the Taliban movement. Thus, America’s worst enemies, as if by agreement, have decided to present Barack Obama with a generous gift on the eve of the November 6th presidential election. Will the Democratic candidate accept?

 

“Bury the hatchet,” suggested Muhammad Ayman al-Zawahiri,  brother to the current leader of Al-Qaeda. He is voluntarily willing to take on the role of mediator in negotiations and has even proposed an action plan. It fits nicely on six pages and contains information about how to completely resolve all disputes with the US within a decade. According to CNN, the mediator wants the US to stop invasion of Muslim countries, free imprisoned Muslims and not to interfere with the imposition of Sharia law. In turn, the radicals will say no to terror and will support the USA and other Western states in their countries.

 

Let’s face it, the proposed conditions seem to be quite acceptable for the United States. The continuation of wars is a painful drain on the US budget, while releasing convicted terrorists is a minor technical problem. Where imposition of Sharia law is concerned, the US no longer interferes anyway.

 

The Taliban provided an almost identical proposal. Recently it became known that some of its leaders  would like to negotiate peacefully and offered to cease fire as a sign of good will. The Taliban demands that the US does not interference in the political and religious life of Afghanistan, and in return the Taliban will be ready to cooperate with the US in all other areas. To the point that they would even be willing to allow all major US military bases to remain on its territory. Oh and another condition – absolutely no cooperation with Karzai.

 

It would seem that on the eve of presidential elections President Obama should be happy to receive these offers, as they would allow him to go down in history as the winner of two wars (in Afghanistan and against terrorism). But this will not happen. Firstly, because Obama simply does not have the time to solve global issues until the 6th of November. Secondly, because it is absolutely unnecessary. Remember, this is not the first attempt to negotiate. For some reason, every time it looked as if some sort of accord was eminent, something ended up happening that completely destroyed any further progress. Either Al-Qaeda would blow something or someone one up, or the Marines would piss on corpses of the dead Taliban, or someone would burn the Quran.

 

And in any case, frankly, the terrorists’ true intentions are highly questionable. For example, in the case of the Taliban, the Western media refer to some “moderate members of the movement,” of whom no one knows anything. We also have doubts about this Muhammad Ayman al-Zawahiri character. There is absolutely no evidence of him having any influence over his brother. In addition, he spent the last 14 years in Egyptian prisons, and was released only recently, after the overthrowing of Mubarak. It is likely that he had contacts with the intelligence agencies of the West.

 

Thus, the whole story of “solutions you can’t refuse” looks more like Obama’s pre-election PR, rather than anything solid. Its purpose is to demonstrate Obama’s success in the fight against international terrorism, because its leaders appear to be literally on their knees, begging for peace. However, if we are wrong and the talks do take place and lead to eventual peace between the West and the Islamic world, for us it will be a very disturbing fact.
