Islamists In Sudan Burn German Embassy, KFC Burned In Tripoli


If anyone thinks this is about a film that came out months ago, they’re sadly deluded

(Reuters) Sudanese demonstrators broke into the German embassy in Khartoum on Friday, raising an Islamic flag and setting the building on fire in a protest against a film that demeaned the Prophet Mohammad, witnesses said.

Police had earlier fired tear gas to try to disperse some 5,000 protesters who had ringed the German embassy and nearby British mission. But a Reuters witness said policemen just stood by when the crowd forced its way into Germany’s mission.

Demonstrators hoisted a black Islamic flag saying in white letters “there is no God but God and Mohammed is his prophet”. They smashed windows, cameras and furniture in the building and then started a fire, witnesses said.

Apparently, the insistence by the West that they deplore religious debate isn’t working out terribly well. The more this expands, the less it looks like a flash of grassroots anger, and more like coordination.

And then we get

(Telegraph) 14.08 (09.08 A demonstrator has been killed and 25 people hurt after an angry crowd of Islamists set fire to a KFC restaurant in northern Lebanon. The crowd of 300 attacked on the US fast-food chain’s outlet came as Pope Benedict XVI arrived in Lebanon for a three-day visit, calling for Christian-Muslim coexistence and attacking religious extremism.

Not sure what one has to do with the other, besides the fact that the Islamists use any excuse to riot, vandalize, burn, and kill. Check out the picture at the Telegraph link regarding protesters attempting to burn the wall at the Cairo embassy: notice the al Qaeda stylized head band.

The British embassy in Khartoum was also under attack. American embassies in Tunis and Sudan are under attack.

And what’s Obama up to?

And he has a light schedule today, with another fundraiser tonight. Can we even call this leading from behind when there isn’t even a hint of leadership?
