Obama's 'appeasement' brought on attacks

A pro-national defense activist says the recent embassy attacks and subsequent violence in the Middle East can be attributed squarely to Barack Obama's foreign policy of appeasement.

The violence in the Middle East that began in Libya and Egypt has spread to other Muslim countries as angry mobs have torched cars and buildings. Security officials in Lebanon say a crowd set fire to a KFC and an Arby's restaurant, and then clashed with police -- who opened fire, killing one person. There have also been reports of Islamic violence in the Sudan, Yemen, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Tunisia, and even in a Muslim enclave of India. (See report from Associated Press)

Brigitte Gabriel is founder and president of ACT! for America and author of They Must Be Stopped: Why We Must Defeat Radical Islam and How We Can Do It. She says the barrage of anti-American protests in predominantly Muslim countries is the result of an appeasement president.

"For [almost] the last four years we've had a president in the White House who is sending all the wrong signals to our enemies, trying to appease them," she exclaims. "I mean, look at the latest signal that he sends. Our embassy gets attacked in Egypt, and instead of Egyptian President Morsi calling our president, President Obama called Morsi and talked to him -- and it should be the other way around."

According to Gabriel, voters are taking note of the failure of Obama's foreign policy.

"He not only failed on the economy, he failed in representing America and he failed in national security because he sent the wrong messages to our enemy -- and now we are reaping the results and our people are dying overseas," she laments. "I think this is going to affect him big time."

Gabriel says for the first time Americans believe that the United States is not respected by its enemies -- and that, she believes, is not what they bargained for when they elected Obama as president.
