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

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).
