An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
Main ultraconservative Islamist protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Egypt’s capital Tuesday and brought down the flag, replacing it with a black flag with an Islamic inscription to protest a video attacking Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.
Apparently, their so called prophet isn’t strong enough to withstand any criticism. Evidently, neither is their god. It’s also quite obvious that if you sneeze in the wrong direction, these animals have to pool their hatred for everything, and riot.
Dozens of protesters then scaled the embassy walls, went into the courtyard and took down the flag from a pole. They brought it back to the crowd outside, which tried to burn it, but failing that, tore it apart. The protesters on the wall then raised on the flagpole a black flag with the Muslim declaration of faith on it, “There is no god but God and Muhammad is his prophet.”
The flag, similar to the banner used by al-Qaida, is commonly used by ultraconservatives around the region. Almost all the embassy staff had left the compound before the protest, and the ambassador was out of town.
Quite a shame they didn’t set themselves on fire. But that’s ok, they’ll find out what a REAL fire is all about soon enough. I have to say congratulations to MR Obama for advocating the “Arab Spring”. A real bright idea. Trading the devil you know for the WORSE devil you know. Yep…real leadership there bud!
Dozens of riot police lined up along the embassy walls. They did not stop protesters who continued to climb up the wall and stand on it, chanting. But it appeared they were no longer going into the embassy compound.
I would think it would be time to close our embassy there, and kick their ambassador to the curb. Just a thought.
One young member of the ultraconservative Salafi movement, Abdel-Hamid Ibrahim said, “This is a very simple reaction to harming our prophet.”
Not much of a prophet is he? A dead guy needs to be protected from “harm”? Seriously?
Yep….everything we need to know about Islam….
