For the second night, Egyptian protesters are attacking the U.S. embassy in Cairo, Egypt in “retaliation” for a YouTube video which was made by a mystery man who is not anything that the mainstream media has made him out to be. From AhramOnline:
From the story above:
Crowds of angry, mainly Muslim, protesters gathered before the US Embassy in Cairo on Wednesday evening to denounce a short film – produced by a US-Israeli filmmaker – that critics say defames Islam and the Prophet Mohammed.
In the dim light, a couple hundred protesters chanted against the US and repeated pro-Islam slogans. “God is Great,” they shouted. “We heed your call, oh Prophet of God.”
Separated from the walls of the US embassy by lines of Egyptian policemen and armoured cars protecting the diplomatic mission in downtown Cairo, protesters voiced rage that someone had dared to produce a film that they perceive as defaming their prophet and that no officials had formally apologised for the movie.
“I’m here to voice my displeasure with the defamation of this sacred person, the Prophet Mohammed,” said 29-year-old protester Maha Ahmed.
In other words, the Obama administration has managed to fan the flames of a totally unnecessary protest in numerous nations today thanks to a corrupt and inept foreign policy team. In the last 30 minutes, this update from Reuters says it all:
Security forces fired teargas to disperse stone-throwing demonstrators near the U.S. embassy in Cairo late on Wednesday, some 24 hours after protesters scaled the walls and tore down the flag over a film insulting the Prophet Mohammad.
State news agency MENA said some of those present had been injured, but gave no further details.
Live television showed hundreds of demonstrators gathered at the embassy, where late on Tuesday around 2,000 protested outside after some illegally entered the compound, ripped down the flag and burned it.
Once again the religion of peace and Obama are sowing what they reap.
