MIDDLE EAST (WordNews.org) Sept. 19, 2012 – The American Center for Law and Justice has launched a petition urging the U.S. government to stop funding of troubled spots in the Middle East following the killing of U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Libya along with three members of his staff.
“Radical extremists scaled the U.S. Embassy walls and attacked our compound,” ACLJ Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow says in a letter urging support for the petition. “This senseless anti-American violence continues in Egypt where the radical Muslim Brotherhood is in control. Protestors stormed the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, scaling the wall to tear down and burn the American flag.”
Sekulow said the U.S. sends billions of dollars to help these countries.
“Our foreign aid to Egypt and Libya must stop,” he said.
The petiton reads:
To: President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton
Your Administration must stand up for America – stop apologizing and condemn these abhorrent attacks. All U.S. funding to these countries must end until stable governments – who support America – are put in place.
