U.S. Embassy gives warning to American citizens in Egypt over possible terrorist attack on US female missionaries

Obama’s support for the so-called “democracy movement” in Egypt is working out splendidly, eh?

CBN NEWS – The U.S. Embassy in Cairo has posted a warning for American citizens, particularly women missionaries, living in Egypt. Officials cautioned on the embassy website that the government has “credible information suggesting terrorist interest in targeting U.S. female missionaries in Egypt.”

Americans were warned to “exercise vigilance, taking necessary precautions to maintain their personal security.” Egypt has been the scene of fevered anti-American demonstrations outside the embassy in recent weeks, as Muslims protest against a film they believe dishonors Mohammed.

The climate has deteriorated for Egyptian Christians as well, as a Coptic priest claimed Friday that a group of Christians had fled their town in the northern Sinai because of threats from Islamists.

Also on Friday, the chairperson of a House subcommittee said she would block $450 million in aid to Egypt requested by the Obama administration until U.S. relations with Cairo’s Muslim Brotherhood-dominated government can be reviewed.

Representative Kay Granger (R)-Texas said in a statement, “I am not convinced of the urgent need for this assistance and I can not support it at this time….I have placed a hold on these funds.”

    According to Hillary Clinton, $450 million doesn’t buy as much as it used to …..

    • conservocop

      No, and it’s not going to her in buying 2016

  • Obama didn’t do anything about our ambassador killed on ‘American soil’ and 4 other Americans, what makes you think he’ll protect Christian women missionaries in Egypt? he thinks missionaries are evil…he’s anti-colonialist and he hates Israel…he’s a muslim at heart and he’s no more an American than i am British…he may have been born in Hawaii but his heart is with those muslim nations breaking free from American imperialism…watch 2016…it has answers…i’m worried and i’m praying for Romney…

      Although 2016 is a good take, it covers only the anti-colonialism aspect, and not the Islamic aspect. That is the big weakness of the film. Obama’s Muslim ties are not covered. And D’Souza has trouble talking about Islam. He loses big time when contronted by Robert Spencer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-G-GT2gMoE

      2016 is the smallest portion of what motivates Obama. Islam motivates him much more.

      • 2016 was enough to show me that obama is not American in his heart…he hates Israel and he will do what it takes to bring both America and Israel down to size…

        • las1

          All true, and I am a big fan of D’Souza… but his major flaw is how much he stakes on Obama’s anti-colonialism.

          When D’Souza says that Obama’s support for Palestine is a function of Obama’s identification of the poor and down trodden under capitalist and colonial powers and that he is only doing it to identify with them is a indication of how much D’Souza DOES NOT know Islam. In this sense D’Souza’s film is one dimensional and sorely lacking. And he really does seem to indicate that his theory on anti-colonialism is the sole reason for Obama doing what he does.

          If you view the video I referenced you understand pretty clearly that not only is D’Souza glaringly pedestrian and unknowledgable about Islam, he’s a willing dupe to be coached by Suhail Kahn who appears to be doing more than simply moderating the debate, but handing D’Souza his debating points. The biggest howler is when D’Souza draws moral equivalence between the Koran and the Bible by claiming the Old Testament has violence in it as well.

          Suhail Khan is a fellow Indian to D’Souza, but a Muslim who was inserted into conservatives circles most notably as a board member of the American Conservative Union. Khan wilts under scrutiny by Spencer and Geller.

          I say this to emphasize that when people don’t understand Islam, whatever they say politically is compromised by this lack of knowledge. D’Souza is exhibit A in this phenomenon.

      The servers in God’s house mut be burning up, ’cause so many of us are praying daily for his help. As for the 4 Americans murdered in Libya …. everyone now knows they were mere ” bumps in the road ” . May the good Lord save us from this scurge.

  • God protect your missionaries, keep them safe but please let them be able to spread the Light of Your Word in an increasing darkness.

    Women missionaries? What cowards. Absolute cowards. I had an argument with a Muslim a couple years back. He told me that Christians had killed and done this or that. He tthen told me that hypocrites die slow…meaning me. I told him cowards die quick. It felt really good to say.

    • kong1967

      Not only are they cowards, but they are also hypycrites. Muslims burn the Bible on a dialy basis. They burn down churches full of people. They do absolutely nothing to draw respect for their religion, yet they demand it. If there’s even talk of one man burning the Quran they riot and kill people. They have no respect for any “infidel”, so I have no respect for them. May they all burn in hell, or sooner if I can help it.

      • conservocop

        Can your imagine their horror after they take that last breath and suddenly find themselves standing before the imposing figure of Jesus, and not muhammad, and allah is nowhere to be found.

        • kong1967

          It’s coming, and they will realize that it isn’t 72 virgins, they are Virginians. George Washington and others ready to kick their satanic a$$es straight to hell.

          • 12grace

            Love your comment, K.

            • kong1967

              Thank you. 🙂

      • Orangeone

        Oh how I wish we Americans would each burn a Quran every time a Muslim touched or damaged our flag.

        • kong1967

          Lol, that would not only make the muslims go nuts, but the Democrats as well. They need to be taught that two can play their game. If they want us to respect the Quran then they have to respect the Bible….and our way of life.

  • kong1967

    Doh!! Obama outflanked by the chairperson of a House subcommittee!! How’s that for checks and balances? How long will she be able to hold out?

    If they round up women and kill them, they will be stirring up the hornet’s nest. May G-d be with them.

  • 911Infidel

    Obama pushed the meme that in Tahir square, the miscreats were shouting “Muslims and Christians we are one”. Yeah sure they were…Maybe in the leftward land of stupid…but not in the real world.

    Here’s what they were chanting: Khybar, Khybar al-Yahud


    Al-Quda Rayheen Shuhada bil-Malayeen.

    Got that? Oh you want it in English? Oh pardon me. The first translates as “Jews remember Khyba”r and what we did to you there? (lots of slaughter and taking of female slaves etc). The shortened version is Khybar al-Yahud…or slaughter the Jews.

    The second: “To Jerusalem we march, martyrs by the millions.”

    By the way a Christian Copt town of 10,000 in the Sinai has been given 48 hours to leave or the jihadis will attack it.

    Arab Spring my a$$. And the schmuck in the WH wants to give 450 million dollars to these haji SOB’s?

  • Army_Pilot1967

    Bless Kay Granger for stopping any additional aid to the muslim brotherhood in Egypt. I wouldn’t send Egypt another nickel for a long, long time because it is sending money to an sworn enemy of the United States….how stupid is that? But that’s what I’ve come to expect from obama and his sympathies for muslim/muslim controlled governments.

  • conservative58

    I am sick and tired of our hard-earned taxpayer dollars going overseas to people who want to kill and destroy us! We have 23 million people out of work and our administration wants to send $450 million to MB in Egypt!

    And now the UN is talking about implementing a global tax…

    He!! NO!!!!

    • Kolobok42

      Time for Atlas to shrug.

  • What, you mean they can’t blame this on a video now? Hmmm, so if there is no video this time around, why would these Islamist thugs want to target American female missionaries? Could it be because they don’t like them, hate Christianity, and want them dead? Naaa, don’t you know, Obama said we’re loved in the world because of his Muslim outreach program. Note to Obama: This is turning into the 1980s all over again, where you had a lot of Americans kidnapped in Lebanon. Do we really want to see this movie play out all over again? Election Day can’t come fast enough for me.

    • Orangeone

      And where is the film maker?????

  • So what video will Obama blame on this time, when he decides to do nothing about the presumed attack that Egypt has so nicely obliged to share?

    • hbnolikeee

      It was Bush.

      • 12grace


        And it’s a racist question. LOL!

      • Orangeone

        It was Romney’s support of Bibi Netanyahu.

  • RKflorida

    I would assume that any American that is in Egypt has a very compelling reason to be there or is a mental reject.

  • Elizabeth

    Wow, how unlike him to send out a warning to American citizens in an Arab nation. Must be all the scrutiny the White House is currently under due to the Bengazi ongoing debacle. How utterly insincere of him.

    Good Lord, protect those who may be in harm’s way. And good Lord, deliver our nation from this Godless and immoral so-called leader. Amen.

    • SPELL9


  • sjmom

    God bless Rep. Granger for putting a hold on these funds because Obama wants them released. Obama needs to be place in a solitary cell where he can do no more harm to America or our citzens. If the last two weeks do not qualify for impeachment or prison I don’t know what does.

    • Orangeone

      When the missionaries are murdered, O’Bambi will blame Rep. Granger because those funds were to be used to protect them.

  • armyvet10

    Please forgive me for being a retired dog face soldier from the Army, but when we had dangerous times to deal with we had a simple saying, “RUCK UP.” It meant get your $hit together we are about to move out, into harms way to defend those that need and deserved to be defended.

  • 12grace

    We are at war with Islam they only one that doesn’t seem to know this is obama.

    The War Between Islam and The US

    • aposematic

      What makes you believe Obuma doesn’t know when Obuma is obviously at war with all those “we are at war with Islam?”

      • 12grace

        Perhaps, I should say obama is not at war with Islam as it seems he collaborates with them at every turn in order to bring America ( the Colonialist country) to her knee’s and in submission to their moon god.

  • Sober_Thinking

    Block the funds… period. Stop supporting this evil.

    • Orangeone

      Block the funds, revoke all visas and discontinue all trade. Let them starve to death. Let them go without medical care.

      • Sober_Thinking

        Yeah… agreed. Frankly, I’d pull our embassies too. While I see the merit in maintaining a relationship with these twisted countries, I detest them and would strongly consider severing all ties with them. Certainly cut off all military aid immediately. We need to disassociate ourselves with their evil.

        Not sure how that would affect the “peace” between them and Israel… but something more has to be done.

        • Orangeone

          So true.  And deport all of the embassy staff and close their doors.  They are not welcome in our country and only serve as a sanctuary for terrorists.

          • Sober_Thinking


  • YAY….way to go Texas. No more money to angry muslims.

  • Great job, Kay Granger!

    as history shows….money won’t fix anything, the likes of jimmy carter,barak obama, and hillary won’t and can’t fix anything…..let’s either get out of dodge or send the likes of george s patton to deal with our enemies…..

      If only our general had been allowed to finish in Desert Storm!

    • WordsFailMe

      I’d like to see the next diplomatic effort to the dirt word led by Dr. Stranglelove.

  • Jaels_Song

    Obama and the American Pravda ignored (indeed lied) about the sodomizing and murder of an American ambassador. Will these “lover of women” on the Democrat side also bravely stand by as American Christian women are brutalized while being held hostage? Will paid Obama supporters later come out and say against her raped and murdered carcass, “She had it coming…” ?

    • Paul C.

      When are we going to learn that Obama has a agenda and it’s not to help the USA. If he gets in again he has 4 years of no transparency and doesn’t have to answer to anybody. look at the cover-ups now can you imagine another 4 years

  • aposematic

    Why are Hillarious and the Obuma Admin. borrowing America’s future to support Islam?

    • Orangeone

      Because they are Muslims and want to be the world’s Muslim leaders!

  • Orangeone

    One of O’Bambi’s campaign staff said “progressive democracy” last week on the Sunday shows but I cannot remember which show or which mouth piece. The “Middle East” isn’t going to be a democracy, it will be a more severe progressive Islam.

  • Orangeone

    O’Bambi’s beliefs:

    1. Women are useless
    2. Christians interfere with Muslim reign and need to be eliminated
    3. Caucasians are worth killing

  • Trust1TG

    Hope this is true: TX Rep blocks aid to Egypt: http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Peace/2012/09/29/US-lawmaker-holds-up-millions-in-Egypt-aid

    NOT another US penny to Islamists.

    NOT another US soldier sacrificed in these countries.

    NOT another US dollar spent trading with them.

    TAX all tourists and businesses who deal with Islamic countries to support our injured soldiers and care for the families of those killed or injured.

    99% of terrorist organizations listed by the US State department are Islamic.

    Time to face the truth about Islam.

    Time to drill for our own oil.

    Let them repent or rot in the hell of their own making.

    • Sober_Thinking

      Good post.

  • WordsFailMe

    Jon Huntsman, former Republican Ambassador wrote the Presszy Obama about how thrilled he was to have served, diplomatically, beneath Obama.

    I wonder how many more ambassadors will express their gratitude to the Yellow President as he leaves their bodies scattered diplomatically and rotting on the arab streets? Frankly, if you took an Obama appointment you are on your own. I am sure that Obama will do whatever he can fit into his schedule to get your body returned.

    What Barry said in “Audacity of Hope”…
    “Of course, not all my conversations in immigrant communities follow this easy pattern. In the wake of 9/11, my meetings with Arab and Pakistani Americans, for example, have a more urgent quality, for the stories of detentions and FBI questioning and hard stares from neighbors have shaken their sense of security and belonging. They have been reminded that the history of immigration in this country has a dark underbelly; they need specific assurances that their citizenship really means something, that America has learned the right lessons from the Japanese internments during World War II, and that I will stand with them should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    What he meant was…
    I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.

    From Family Security Matters
    9/11’s Aftermath of Lethal Tolerance
    The one thing I have never understood is the way Americans seem to refuse to accept the fact that the worst attack on the homeland since Pearl Harbor was planned, funded, carried out by Muslims, and was celebrated by Muslims around the world.

    Perhaps the reluctance to relate the attack to “a religion” had to do with the way whole generations of Americans since the 1960s have passed through schools that indoctrinated them to believe that America has been invading other nations wrongly, supporting allies like Israel wrongly, and deserved to be attacked because of it.

    The President, Barack Hussein Obama, is the son of a Muslim father he venerates even though he deserted and divorced his mother. He became the step-son of another Muslim his mother married, spent four years growing up in Indonesia surrounded by Muslims, until he was returned to the United States to be raised by his grandparents. While growing up in Hawaii he was mentored by a card-carrying member of the Communist Party USA and during his college years, a close friend was a Pakistani with whom he traveled to that nation.

    In “Audacity of Hope” he wrote, “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

    One wonders how long it will take for the vast body of evidence that a war is being waged by Muslims around the world against those they scorn as “unbelievers” and against whom Islam calls for “a holy war.”

    Recent reports from the Middle East indicate that, over the past five years, scores of Christians living in Egypt were murdered and that women and children are being abducted, tortured, raped, and forced to convert to Islam; 550 cases have been documented. The tiny Christian community in the Hamas-run Gaza strip is under siege. In Indonesia, Muslim protesters forced a church to shut down during Sunday worship. Name the nation, Iran, Lebanon, Kenya, Kuwait, Turkey, and what emerges is a consistent pattern, one that mirrors the way Islam was spread by terror and conquest since the seventh century.

    Post 9/11 is testimony to a suicidal tolerance that ignores the message left by the ruins of the Twin Towers, the attack on the Pentagon, and the deaths of more than 3,000 innocent people on the airlines and in those buildings who were deemed the enemies of Islam for no other reason than being Americans, for being “infidels.”

    It is a fearful prospect that a nuclear mushroom cloud could rise over Israel and, in all likelihood, over New York and other U.S. cities if we do not end this foolish “tolerance” that preys on an American value we hold dear and which may well doom more Americans.

    The official policy of two administrations has been to pretend that Islam is not the enemy. The Obama administration went so far as to tell NASA that its new mission was Muslim outreach. And Islam is reaching back, but not in gratitude for ridding Iraq of Saddam Hussein or protecting Afghanis against the Taliban. The hatred of America, of Christians, Jews, and all other faiths is costing lives every day.

    The lesson of 9/11 is that Islam cannot be tolerated.
