Extremism is not defined by a particular religious or political affiliation and in all its forms is a danger to civil society.

"Say it, don't fear: Their ambassador must leave, the crowd chanted."

Say it, don't fear... close down the embassy and stop paying billions of American tax dollars to Egypt. Send the money to Israel instead.

There's no question that Egypt, under the leadership of the Muslim Brotherhood and the Muslim religion are a threat to the peace of the region and the entire world. They have announced over and over that Israel must be driven into the Mediterranean Sea. And they, along with their Muslim friends in other Mideastern countries may one day succeed.

I'm totally surprised that the DNews has chosen to print anything that would shed a bad light on Islam. They usually cower at the thought.

Wow! And last week we gave Egypt 1.5 billion dollars, and a few months ago, two billion.

Wouldn't it be better, to use this money to help Americans who can't get health insurance due to pre-existing problems?

Last week we gave Mexico two billion to strengthen their police force. We could use the money here!

Will someone please explain this.

@wrz and worf
So you are going to completely ignore the reason for their outrage and pretend it is just because they are fanatics. Their violence is not alright but don't pretend that it came out of nowhere.

Let's see now. This attack occurred on Tuesday, September 11th. Why wasn't a connection of this attack to this important date cited in this article?

Also, where is the US response from our Commander in Chief at least denouncing a clear violation of US sovereignty and the desecration the US Flag?

So how many US taxpayer dollars has Obama given to these good folks in Libya and Egypt? Perhaps someone should help Obama understand who are our enemies and who are our friends in the Middle East.

Tolstoy,

Who said this came from nowhere? I just don't like our tax money going to them.

fair enough, do you understand why we are trying to help stand up a stable government? maybe to try to reduce the occurrence of this type of mob mentality?
