There are multiple, but unconfirmed, reports from several journalists (published in The Washington Times among others) including Lebanese journalists on site, that Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was raped, tortured, killed and raped again (the first reports were in Arabic, later translated in to English: Tayyar News Service in Lebanon). The Libyan Free Press is reporting he was sodomised, an ultimate insult in Islam. This poor generous-hearted 52 year old man, with a heart for the Middle East and the people of Libya, who helped with its liberation has become the victim of a deeply evil international hatred as a personification of America (the ‘Great Satan’). Chris Stevens has truly, literally (and horribly) died for his country; a completely innocent man.
I stress, these reports are still unconfirmed. It may just be hysteria. I hope so. We do know that he was lost for several hours (eight) and his whereabouts were unknown during the crisis. His bloodied body then appeared and was dragged through the streets. Ziad Abu Zeid told the Associated Press news agency the Libyan doctor who treated Mr Stevens in hospital said he had died of severe asphyxiation, apparently from smoke inhalation, with no other injuries, and that he had tried for 90 minutes to revive him. Mr Stevens was the only American brought into the Benghazi Medical Centre and initially nobody realised he was the ambassador which could explain his missing hours.
Initially the Ambassador and other officials were moved to a second, deemed safer, building after the initial wave of protests. According to al-Sharef, members of the Libyan security team seem to have indicated to the protesters the building to which the Americans were relocated. That building then came under attack (CBS): Libyan Security personnel may have disclosed the whereabouts of the Ambassador.
But as Israeli’s Knesset Deputy Speaker and MP Danny Danon (author of Israel The Will To Prevail) said yesterday, America and the West need to understand what these forces are, and that we are making a huge error relating to Middle-Eastern peoples and powers in American terms with a Western mindset.
