They were warned countless times by the State Department not to go to Yemen, then warned again in February to get out if they were already there. Yet they chose to stay, and now are demanding that Obama use the U.S. military to rescue them. So far their demands have been falling on deaf ears.
Obama wouldn’t rescue 4 Americans including an ambassador and a Navy SEAL in Benghazi, why should he rescue you?
CNN Muna Mansour is from Buffalo in upstate New York. Her family is among the dozens of Americans caught in the crossfire of warring parties in Yemen. And although many other countries evacuated their citizens, India most notably ferrying out around 5,000, the United States has said it is too dangerous for them to directly evacuate American Muslims.
“I was there when the Indians picked up 200 of their people from the port. It was embarrassing. We were just sitting there waiting for someone to come and say ‘OK where are the Americans, let’s pick them up,’ ” she said. “I called the Riyadh embassy,” she adds, referring to the U.S. Embassy in neighboring Saudi Arabia. “I told them there were about 75 families here waiting at the port. My family has been waiting there for two weeks. We ran out of money, we ran out of food.”
The State Department said it is too risky to conduct an evacuation of citizens from the area. “We have to make a decision based on the security situation and what is feasible to do,” State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf said earlier this month. “And given the situation in Yemen is quite dangerous and unpredictable, doing something like sending in military assets even for an evacuation could put U.S. citizen lives at greater risk.”
A group of U.S. organizations, including designated terrorist group CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination League, have filed a lawsuit against the State Department and Defense Department over the government’s stance on evacuations.
The village of Nabi Samwil is surrounded by Israeli neighborhoods and a national park which makes it impossible for Muslims to expand and build. The Muslim residents are closely monitored by Israel in order to protect the Jews from more Muslim attacks.
Because they are on the Israeli side of the wall in Jerusalem, they must pass through Israeli military checkpoints to get to Ramallah and are restricted as to which products they can bring back into Israel. They are only allowed in when an Israeli liaison gives them permission Because of this, they consider their life a tragedy, especially as more and more Jews move into the area. Imagine that, more and more Jews moving into the Israeli capital of Israel – Jerusalem. Here’s an idea, cupcake, go move to Gaza or one of the other 56 Muslim majority nations if you don’t like it.

Commonly known as “the oldest city in the world,” Jericho is an important historical, cultural, and political center located northwest of the Dead Sea. The Jericho Synagogue in the Royal Maccabean winter palace dates from 70-50 BC.
The city is perhaps best known from the Biblical story of a great victory over its Canaanite citizens by the Israelite leader Joshua. In the story, the walls of the heavily fortified city were destroyed with divine assistance during the year 1400 b.c. The site of ancient Jericho, known today as Tell es-Sultan, has been the focus of several archaeological excavations to investigate the Biblical story. The original settlement was built on a hill, or “tell”. The results of these excavations suggest that the walls of Tell es-Sultan have been built and rebuilt many times, due mainly to collapse caused by earthquakes, which are common in the region.
