Another Benghazi in the Offing? (Front Page Mag)


Another Benghazi in the Offing? – By Robert Spencer (Front Page Mag) / Oct 20, 2023

U.S. embassies under threat in the Middle East and South America.

On Wednesday, the U.S. embassy in Buenos Aires received a bomb threat. That followed less than a day after angry crowds gathered outside the U.S. embassies in Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq, and Yemen, screaming “Allahu akbar” and expressing rage over the bombing of a Gaza hospital by Israel that turned out to be the bombing of a hospital by Palestinian Islamic Jihad. Now that America is back and the adults are firmly in charge and all that, is another Benghazi-style storming of an American embassy and massacre of American personnel in the offing? It could happen all too easily. After all, what would Old Joe Biden’s woke military or security forces do in the face of a genuine challenge?

Fox News reported Tuesday that “hundreds of protesters” assembled in front of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, enraged over reports that turned out to be false that Israel had bombed the Al-Ahli Baptist Hospital in Gaza and killed at least five hundred people. Hours after the establishment media had carried the news of Israel’s alleged atrocity around the world, drawing condemnation from such wise heads as Justin Trudeau and Rashida Tlaib, the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) announced that Israel had not hit the hospital at all. The jihadis themselves had done so: “An analysis of IDF operational systems indicates that a barrage of rockets was fired by terrorists in Gaza, passing in close proximity to the al-Ahli [Baptist] hospital in Gaza at the time it was hit. Intelligence from multiple sources we have in our hands indicates that Islamic Jihad is responsible for the failed rocket launch which hit the hospital in Gaza.”

The IDF’s explanation was greeted with a skepticism that the establishment media had never displayed toward the initial claim that Israel had bombed the hospital, but Hamas operatives had been caught talking about how the hospital (actually, just its parking lot) had been hit by a stray Palestinian Islamic Jihad rocket.
