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 wont 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 movies producers and act in accordance with international agreements that criminalize actions that create sectarian strife on the basis of race, color or religion.

Why Muslims should not live in western society.
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.
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?
See post #3.
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 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).

That and work on the big agenda. It’s a twofer.
