Update: Thousands protest at US embassy (Recent Photos)
Egypt Independent ^ | Sept 11, 2012 | Nadia Ahmed

Posted on 09/11/2012 3:36:34 PM PDT by fso301

The number of protesters outside the US embassy in Cairo began to decrease Tuesday night after thousands had gathered earlier to protest a film they said was being produced in the United States that insults the Prophet Mohamed.

Ultras, hardcore football fans, have joined the protest, banging drums, setting off fireworks and insulting the Central Security Forces soldiers stationed around the embassy.

Earlier, around 5,000 people chanted against the US and President Barack Obama, declaring that they are willing to give their lives to avenge the dignity of their prophet.

And once again Obama bends over and apologizes to these scumbags who rip off OUR flag and put up their Muslim Brotherhood Pro Al Qaeda flag. The sooner we get Obama out the better, God help us all if he gets re-elected

Muslims are striking against the U.S. in Egypt and Lybia on 9/11 to celebrate that anniversary. The goal of Islam is world domination. It is a great evil:

Nobama is in a deep hurt status. Let the polls say what they want, his chances are very slim. I’ll bet any legitimate FReeper 1 on 1 to his re-election chance.

Muslims are striking against the U.S. in Egypt and Lybia on 9/11 to celebrate that anniversary. Obama supports Islam and Obama is an enemy of the U.S.A. Obama issued an Executive order giving Amnesty to a million illegals. this is an unlawful act. Obama is acting like a dictator and has buried the U.S. in debt. The goal of Islam is world domination. It is a great evil:

http://www.faithfreedom.org/

Islam, as it is taught in the Quran (Koran) and lived by Muhammad, as is reported in the Hadith (Biography and sayings of the Prophet) is a religion of Injustice, Intolerance, Cruelty, Absurdities, discrimination, Contradictions, and blind faith. Islam advocates killing the non-Muslims and abuses the human rights of minorities and women. Islam expanded mostly by Jihad (holy war) and forced its way by killing the non-believers. In Islam apostasy is the biggest crime punishable by death. Muhammad was a terrorist himself therefore terrorism cannot be separated from the true Islam. Islam means submission and it demands from its followers to submit their wills and thoughts to Muhammad and his imaginary Allah. Allah is a deity that despises reason, democracy, freedom of thought and freedom of expression.

Q: Why have radical Egyptian Islamists overtaken the US embassy?

A: Because they know with Obama, they can get away with it.

Statement from Embassy....

"The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims.."

WOW! That'll stop em from scaling the wall!!!

So much for the sovereignty of the Embassy grounds.

I really hope you are right. I am not a betting person and will pass on your bet. Sure - in a fair fight Obama should be toast.

However 47% of the people pay no taxes, the media is an effective propaganda machine and a large segment don’t pay attention to politics and get their news from the MSM.

Then overlay that with the impact of democrats lying, cheating and stealing. Obama faces a contender who is a timid RINO. So given all that I think Obama will prevail. When that happens I will likely disengage through a process I have been considering for a while now called “virtual secession”. I’ll pretend I live in a new country where Obama and his minions don’t exist. Sure it’s batty but we all have coping mechanisms to various degrees

The US Embassy has been attacked. The Consulate in Libya as well. POTUS continues his fundraising/golf/ vacations and insults the PM of Israel.

Hopefully the results in Nov will be like 1980.

My opinion only, the date of these protests. 9/11, a victory for Islam in the minds of folk who celebrate their victory in the 1973 war each year may be far more important to the protesters than the unknown film.

It’s all radical islam - CANNOT POST THIS ENOUGH!!!

“As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

Nation % Muslim
United States 1.0%
Australia 1.5%
Italy 1.5%
Norway 1.8%
Canada 1.9%
China 2.0%

At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

Nation % Muslim
Denmark 2.0%
United Kingdom 2.7%
Germany 3.7%
Spain 4.0%
Thailand 4.6%

From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population. They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chains to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. (United States).

Nation % Muslim
Switzerland 4.3%
Philippines 5.0%
Sweden 5.0%
The Netherlands 5.5%
Trinida and Tabago 5.8%
France 8.0%

At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world. When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions (Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam - Mohammed cartoons).

Nation % Muslim
Guyana 10.0%
India 13.4%
Israel 16.0%
Kenya 10.0%
Russia 15.0%

After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning:

Nation % Muslim
Ethiopia 32.8%

At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

Nation % Muslim
Bosnia 40.0%
Chad 50.1%
Lebanon 59.7%

From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

Nation % Muslim
Albania 70.0%
Malaysia 60.4%
Qatar 77.5%
Sudan 70.0%

After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

Nation % Muslim
Bangladesh 83.0%
Egypt 90.0%
Gaza 98.7%
Indonesia 86.1%
Iran 98.0%
Iraq 97.0%
Jordan 92.0%
Morocco 98.7%
Pakistan 97.0%
Syria 90.0%
Tajikistan 90.0%
Turkey 99.8%
United Arab Emirates 96.0%

100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim: Nation % Muslim
Yemen 99.9%
Afghanistan 100.0%
Saudi Arabia 100.0%
Somalia 100.0%

Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.”
