Afghans burn Obama effigy at film demo
AFP ^ | September 14, 2012 | AFP

KABUL — Hundreds of Afghan protesters took to the streets on Friday, setting fire to an effigy of US President Barack Obama and demanding the death of a film-maker who they say insulted the Prophet Mohammed.

The demonstration in Nangarhar province, which borders Kabul to the west and Pakistan to the east, saw clerics in the Shinwari tribe call for a $100,000 bounty on the head of the producer of the film, "Innocence of Muslims".

An Obama effigy was also torched, said Zaher Ali, deputy chief of Ghanikhail district's council of clerics, but the protest passed off peacefully and fears about demonstrations in the capital Kabul were not realised.

"Death to America", and "death to the enemies of Islam", shouted the crowd, according to an AFP photographer, in what are fairly routine chants at anti-US protests in Afghanistan.

Performed an Internet search after hearing this news mentioned on FOX. I didn't find much -- I guess the U.S. media aren't willing to air this story.

I see they're still pushing the ridiculous notion that all this commotion stems from a stupid video that 10 people have seen.

Obama bragging how he got Osama ain’t sitting too well with the crazies

Him and Hillary can’t understand why they aren’t loved after all they have done for the Arab Spring

Two of history’s biggest Useful Idiots

My displeasure with Obama does not exceed my contempt for this form of hostility directed at the Presidency.

Speaking of the “film”, how many outspoken “defenders” of the 1st Amendment from Hollywood or the ACLU have spoke out on behalf of the controversial film? I’ve heard nada, zip, zero.

All those apologies and now that? Don’t they love him? He’s the Right Negro, speaking unaccented California English, not too dark, wearing his pants above his knees, educated descendant of slaves (oh, never mind, the Afghans, welfare mammas and the homies don’t know anyway), don’t those Afghans feel guilty about slavery and Jim Crow like we all do (include me out!) ?

>> “Death to America”, and “death to the enemies of Islam”, shouted the crowd,

Islam is a war plan.

Not too good for an effigy. They oughta hire a graduate of Effigy Studies at an American State University.

I’m not sure what 8 militants surrendering in Saudi Arabia means in regards to Afghanistan but it is different.

I don’t know what to make of it but I guess they’re off the list and Interpol will stop searching for them.

I can’t imagine 8 would turn themselves in unless they knew it would be a catch and release.

Just curious...

Catch and release in Saudi Arabia? Catch and release their heads with a sword maybe.
