I'm Bill O'Reilly thanks for watching us tonight President Obama and a Muslim moral part two that is a subject of this evening's talking points memo.
As we told -- last night mr.
Obama should change his approach when dealing with Muslim world.
It's obviously soft power strategy.
Jihadist don't care what mr.
Obama says and any sign of sensitivity.
Will be perceived as weakness.
That's not to say we should antagonize Muslim governments what we certainly have to tell.
They will be held accountable and then actually hold them accountable.
When Americans -- -- Apparently pres Obama read the riot act to Egyptian president -- and now the egyptians are finally protecting the American Embassy from the fanatics and street.
Is worth noting that Egypt is dependent on American -- and tourism.
To survive economically.
There are nearly 84 million people and that country.
The average per capita income 6600.
Dollars a year unemployment among young people.
-- -- 5%.
Egypt is an economic catastrophe.
And there's little USA can do about it.
Today the head of the House Intelligence Committee said that everybody in Cairo knew trouble was brewing before our embassy was attack.
The fact them.
Egypt there was at least.
Many people knew there was going to be a demonstration clearly there was no.
Information that there's going to be more of them.
That a demonstration that particular day.
Jeff and it was -- -- And it was just a crazy anti Muslim video put out in America and the Egyptian government -- it.
And everybody knows -- demonstrations can easily spiral out of control.
The Egyptian government knew that and did little to protect American embassy of Mubarak it's still been in power who would have been soldiers all around him this.
Now if you watch -- -- last night congressman Keith Ellison himself a Muslim.
Was asking for evidence that the Egyptian government was -- well there it is.
When you have a mass demonstration in the Middle East anywhere -- in front of the American Embassy you foot soldiers there everybody knows that.
In Libya the situation is different the assassination of Christopher Stephens and three other Americans including two former Navy SEALs was a planned terrorist act.
The week Libyan government simply can't stop stuff like that we have trouble stopping stuff like that.
So is really literally USA can do about Libya.
Other than to advise Americans not to go there and beef up security for those who have to be in that beleaguered country.
But -- another matter.
Under the dictator Mubarak a savage man.
That country was an allied to the USA because we bought Mubarak and his generals that is nothing wrong with that.
We all I -- -- Egypt as far as calming things down with -- Israel.
But now the Muslim Brotherhood is in charge and it's a completely different store.
President Obama and governor Romney if he wins the election must understand that any attacks on American citizens anywhere.
Will have to be punished.
It's not enough to say hey.
Don't do it again.
Egypt should lose all laid for the rest of the year and no American should travel to their country in the same time -- And some of.
