Muslim Riots Spread Into Tunisia
NY Post ^

Posted on 09/12/2012 11:12:57 PM PDT by Arthurio

Anti-American rioting spread yesterday to Tunisia, where police used tear gas to stop hundreds of protesters from storming the United States Embassy in protest over a film mocking the prophet Mohammed.

The throngs of demonstrators, who carried the white and black banners of militant Salifist Muslims, had been protesting peacefully in Tunis for hours when about 300 started to break through the embassy gates.

The embassy remained open as police forced the protesters back.

Earlier, the US embassies in Tunisia and Algeria warned Americans to avoid crowded places because of expected protests.

In Egypt, the powerful Muslim Brotherhood ensured that the controversy won’t end soon by calling for peaceful nationwide protests tomorrow “outside all the main mosques . . . to denounce offenses to religion and to the prophet.”

Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said the United States should take a “firm stand” with the movie’s producers and act in accordance with international agreements that “criminalize actions that create sectarian strife” on the basis of race, color or religion.

The "movie" turned out to be a red herring excuse to cover for the rioters.

CNN: Protests against film a ‘diversion. Attack was planned’

And by jumping the gun and not waiting for all of the facts to come in (as they accuse Romney of doing), Obama and Hillary publicized the movie all across the Middle East, guaranteeing that the riots would spread.

Don’t hold your breath waiting for the media to report this. They’re smelling blood and think they can bury Romney with negative coverage on this story.

The statements tweeted from the Cairo embassy, before the riots, were advertising the movie. They were making sure the rioters knew about it. I am sure Hillary directed those tweets herself. This was planned and Hussein and Hillbilly are directing it. They are inflaming the whole Muslim world to try and preempt any action against Iran by Israel.

Same thing happened in Afghanistan with the idiot Florida preacher.

Hardly anyone there knew about his, until General Petraeus opened his yap and talked about him....then everybody in Afghanistan knew about him, and the riots began.

The WSJ said that Karzai did that. Petraeus sure won his heart and mind didn't he?

I am trying to catch up. So Cairo embassy tweets caused the riots? You do realize that for this to be a planned event, means knowledge at minimum a movie existed? How did that happen? And maybe even more than that?

I saw/read that story earlier. Strange isn't that CNN would carry a story that disputes what this administration is doing/saying? The last thing I expect out of this administration is truth. But, CNN has always carried liberals water, so what gives with this outright exposure, contrary to what this administration is claiming.

And the main concern from the liberals within US is making this bloody mess political? I do not know enough to know when what I read/see is FACTUAL.

I guess CNN reports a fact or two now and then.

Here is what I think is going on. FWIW

Egyptian Prime Minister Hisham Qandil said the United States should take a “firm stand” with the movie’s producers and act in accordance with international agreements that “criminalize actions that create sectarian strife” on the basis of race, color or religion.

I guess that such a law makes it illegal to be a Muslim.

After all the Islamic religion creates more strife against Jews than any other activity I can think of.

Islam also creates sectarian strife against Christians and Hindus.

Pretty much Islam creates strife against every other religion including Islam (sect against sect).

Possibly, but could they also be trying to gin up a “crisis” before the elections?
Schadenfreude that a lot of these groups were shouting “Death to 0bama” along with to America. Fool thought they’d thank him, I guess. I hope he’s happy (not).

This makes me just want to fund an endless stream of movies mocking mad mo. We could end the muslim problem by just taunting them to burn their own cities down.

Some reports repeated by Reuters and AFP that Yemeni embassy was “stormed.” Just breaking news, not much detail.

“Maybe I am wrong but this feels like only the beginning...”

This is the natural course of things when we don’t support the secular Muslim strongmen (Saddam, Mubarak, Qaddafi). Those animals attacking the embassies wouldn’t even dare assemble when those men were in power; we have destabilized the Muslim world (some say deliberately).

Pardon me, not his brother but rather, his father. He was gunned down as he was walking home from the mosque in Quetta in 1999.

“Early Baracktober Surprise?”

Just greezing the skids. Gotta get the noise up before Odinga can push the button on his plan.

Not taking any questions yesterday, turning his back and flying off to Las Vegas was just done to feed the rumor mill.

Then the interview with TeleMundo, Libya is not our enemy or ally. What kinda answer is that? More noise......

This Arab Fall was an inevitable sequel to the much-celebrated Arab Spring. I’m disgusted with the voters who put Obama in power - every sensible person knew this would happen.

The movie (or it’s trailer, at least) was shown on Egyptian television by the Islamists that very day so they could incite the mob and get better attendance at their pre-planned 9/11 party.

I’m pretty sure tv in Egypt is closely state controlled and this couldn’t have happened without the knowledge of the Egyptian government.

Personally, I think our government was ready to go with the Terry Jones story, even though he had nothing to do with this, because they knew something bad was going to happen and they wanted to be able to deflect blame from the Muslims.

This was all directed and planned by Obama and Holder

America as the US Congress searches for a single testicle

If only we had taken Ann Coulter's advice given exactly 11 years ago today (2 days after 9/11/2001), which got her fired from National Review:

"Invade their countries, kill their leaders, and convert them to Christianity".

The will was there at the time, and the world would have been a much better place for it.

They apparently climbed up the wall of the embassy this am. Replaced American flag with black flag. Tunis is trending word on Twitter worldwide right now. http://news.blogs.cnn.com/

http://tunisia.usembassy.gov/warden-message-9-14-2013.html

EMERGENCY MESSAGE FOR U.S. CITIZENS U.S. Embassy Tunis September 14, 2012 Demonstrations are expected to take place today in the vicinity of the U.S. Embassy, and the security situation remains fluid. Media reports also indicate that demonstrations may take place in the Kasbah area in central Tunis. The U.S. Embassy remains open; however, access to the area around the Embassy may be restricted due to the demonstrations. If the security situation requires further changes to the availability of public services at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy, updates will be posted on the Embassy website: http://tunisia.usembassy.gov.

Why ball the “rioting”? Are the moozlums now the new blacks? Seemingly anything can set these anti-civilization weirdos off...anything. I’d bet they’d riot somewhere if they knew I won’t let them turn my house into a mosque.
