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).

Maybe I am wrong but this feels like only the beginning .......
Obama will tell any lie to stay in power. Any lie.
Early Baracktober Surprise?
That and work on the big agenda. It’s a twofer.
Obama had his muslim spring.
Now we can see the results.
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).
Karzai’s brother was murdered by the Taliban in 1999.
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......
‘________feels like only the beginning....’
Dropping - - -
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
and CODE PINK and Ayers. Hell is on the loose against
America as the US Congress searches for a single testicle
Many of us, including all progressives, simply are not able or willing to connect dots.
The will was there at the time, and the world would have been a much better place for it.
Thank you for that information and that fits with my suspicions of collusion from the 0bastard administration.
I thought it was “Nuke their countries, take their oil and convert the survivors to Christianity”

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.
