The Obama administration is being heavily criticized over its response to the ongoing crisis surrounding American diplomatic missions in the Middle East and North Africa, turmoil that has seen Islamist mobs attack multiple embassies and has already claimed the life of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens. Among other elements, critics slammed the president’s failure to vigorously defend free speech rights and explain it to the world. 

JBS CEO Art Thompson's weekly video news update for September 17-23, 2012. In this week's video news update JBS CEO Art Thompson discusses: Arab unrest; voter fraud in Milwaukee, Wisconsin; and reporters in collusion with revolutions and military extremists.

 Michael Hayden, a former general and CIA director, says the United States now has "moral responsibility" for the future of Libya because our actions in helping overthrow Moammar Gadhafi continue to cause bloodshed and unrest, such as the attack on the U.S. embassy and the murder of Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens.

 An Islamist mob stormed the U.S. embassy in Yemen’s capital city of Sana’a, torching a building after tearing down the American flag and setting it on fire. The latest incident, like the September 11 attacks on American diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya, was widely reported to have been sparked by outrage over a crude YouTube video depicting the Islamic Prophet Mohammed as a barbarian pedophile.

 At least four American officials including U.S. Ambassador to Libya John Christopher Stevens are reportedly dead after outraged Islamist mobs attacked U.S. diplomatic missions in Egypt and Libya on September 11. The frenzied hordes were apparently upset about an online film made by an Israeli-American that ridicules the Islamic Prophet Mohammed as a savage pedophile. Experts, however, say it is much broader than that.

 A demolition crew used the cover of night — and police protection — to demolish a Pentecostal church in Moscow September 6, according to a European news source. Vasili Romanyuk, pastor of the Holy Trinity Pentecostal Church in eastern Moscow, told the Oslo-based Forum 18 News Service that an unidentified crew, backed by local police, arrived at the church around midnight, and by morning had disassembled most of the three-story structure. The congregation had apparently been attempting to work with government authorities to secure the legal authority to keep its building at the location, but had been beaten by a court order.

Contrary to claims by Western governments and Islamist tyrants financing the “revolution” in Syria, foreign jihadist forces and al Qaeda terrorists battling the secular Bashir al-Assad regime are not trying to create a “democracy” with “human rights” for all. Instead, they are waging a so-called jihad, or “holy war,” to build an Islamic dictatorship under Sharia law as part of an emerging international Muslim system, Doctors Without Borders co-founder Jacques Beres confirmed after returning from Syria.

 After 70 years of denial, new declassified documents show that the Roosevelt Administration knew — and covered up the fact — that Stalin butchered 22,000 Polish military officers.

Hong Kong voters went to the polls on September 9 to support liberty-minded candidates after months of massive protests and even hunger strikes against proposed communist “brainwashing” in government schools, which opponents said was an effort to indoctrinate children into supporting the brutal dictatorship ruling over mainland China. Anti-Beijing sentiment is still at an all-time high and continues to grow.  

 In both Iran and Pakistan, important victories have been won in the conflict between Christian faith and Islamic persecution. In Iran, after three years in prison awaiting execution for the “crime” of converting to Christianity, pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been freed. In Pakistan, a young girl wrongly accused of burning pages of the Koran has been released from prison and the Muslim cleric who planted false evidence has been arrested.
