An Egyptian court has tried and sentenced seven Americans in absentia for their roles in the “Innocence of Muslims” YouTube clip that the Obama government erroneously blamed for a terrorist attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya. In a not at all funny story, the Associate Press quotes Rev. Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who was among those condemned to death by a full blown court for having no actual role in making a movie that hardly anyone knew anything about before 9-11-12.

In a telephone interview Wednesday, Jones said the ruling “shows the true face of Islam” – one that he views as intolerant of dissent and opposed to basic freedoms of speech and religion.

Now, why would that hayseed Jones view as intolerant of dissent and opposed to basic freedoms, a religion that had just condemned him to death from several thousand miles away? Crazy old coot.

Here in Obama’s America we’re so much better and more enlightened about these things. We merely publicly identify Islamist targets and then stick them in jail on technicalities, while our president declares to whom the future does and does not belong. Surprisingly, or not, the president believes the future does not belong to the very people that the Egyptian court just sentenced to death.

Why, it’s just crazy to think that Obama’s Middle East policies are objectively pro-Islamist.
