Protest at US embassy in Sudan over anti-Islam film
Radio Netherlands ^ | September 12, 2012

Posted on 09/12/2012 3:25:41 PM PDT by combat_boots

Hundreds of protesters upset over a movie mocking Islam demonstrated outside the American embassy in Sudan on Wednesday, an embassy official said, after attacks on US missions in Libya and Egypt.

"I do believe it was a few hundred," the official said, asking for anonymity. "Our compound was not breached."

He said the demonstrators were upset by the same film which prompted a mob attack late Tuesday on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans.

The amateur American-made Internet video film at the centre of the controversy, "Innocence of Muslims", portrays Muslims as immoral and gratuitously violent.

The film is being promoted by controversial Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has drawn protests in the past.

"It has to do with this film," the US embassy official said of the protest by a group which called itself "Sudanese Youth".

He said embassy staff met three of the protesters, who delivered written demands.

"They were asking for an immediate apology, removal of the YouTube video", and expressed their displeasure at pastor Jones, the official said.

In neighbouring Egypt on Tuesday thousands of demonstrators tore down the Stars and Stripes at the Cairo US embassy and replaced it with a black Islamic flag, similar to one adopted by several militant groups.

In Khartoum, the sprawling US embassy compound is located far from the city centre.

Send the link I will post to the Drudge Report, there might be evidence that, that so called movie ? might be a hoax.

The main stream media lied and people have died.

Well, as it turns out, the film was screened on an Egyptian Salafist television channel. Obviously the Salafists

I believe the only way to deal with these people is to quietly warn the leaders of each country or group that the U.S. is going to kill them, even if it requires nuclear weapons if they allow these murderers to continue killing Americans.

Yes, I know it is never going to happen so we can just expect more Americans to be murdered.

There is one other possibility. That God somehow holds them accountable.

"Our compound was not breached."

Yet.

I wonder if the State Department has issued white flags to all our embassies yet.

And now by Obama and Hillary “jumping the gun”, and blaming Libya and Egypt on the movie, instead of keeping their mouths shut about it, now they really are rioting over the movie.

Caroline Glick is da bomb. Her article on the Arab Spring that ended with a discussion on Salafists and the MB was really good. 2011

Sure you see it.

They put their children out, let flies crawl all over their face, and it's your, Americas, fault.

There is a reason the Obama protection agency in the “News Media” is busy spinning this on a movie no one has ever heard of. The mobs in the ME aren’t chanting about this movie, they are chanting “1 billion Osamas”.

This is a reaction to Obama bragging 21 times last week about killing Osama

Credit where credit is due. The only person that sounded Presidential today was Romney. obama had no questions on his failed arab spring or any other question that might harm him... Mitt kicked the crap out of the journolistas that had thought that they had lain a trap. obama couldn’t handle that heat on his best day.

It was all about rubbing 9-11 into our faces, pure and simple. They all know that they have a friend in the White House. It was not the movie. The movie was just a call to arms.

I thought about that also... and we are talking about what was very recently a hot war zone with mb and al qaeda militants known to be in theater. Dereliction of duty if you ask me.

I know it’s the Netherlands, and, as a side note, I once had orders to CNA (never took them).

Here’s how I want this headline to read..........

U.S. Marines kill 15 protesters attacking the U.S. Embassy. No U.S. Marines or staff injured during the attack.

Simple, straight forward, and just might have a lasting impact on the local ne’re do wells.
