Anti-American Protests Over Film Expand to More Than a Dozen Countries
New York Times ^ | September 14, 2012 | DAVID D. KIRKPATRICK, ALAN COWELL and RICK GLADSTONE

....Witnesses in Cairo said protests that first flared on Tuesday — the day J. Christopher Stevens, the American ambassador in Libya, was killed in an attack in neighboring Libya — continued sporadically Friday, with protesters throwing rocks and gasoline bombs near the American Embassy and the police firing tear gas. The bodies of Mr. Stevens and three other Americans killed in the Libya attack were being returned to the United States on Friday.

In Lebanon,one person was killed and 25 injured as protesters attacked restaurants. There was also turmoil in Yemen, Bangladesh, Qatar, Kuwait and Iraq, and demonstrations in Malaysia. In Nigeria, troops fired into the air to disperse protesters marching on the city of Jos, Reuters reported.

State media in Egypt said more than 220 people had been injured in the clashes since Tuesday.

The widening unrest has challenged the Obama administration’s policy in the tinderbox region, where the Arab Spring uprisings have removed many of the pro-American strongmen who once kept public displays of Islamic passion in check.

In Yemen, baton-wielding security forces backed by water cannons blocked streets near the American Embassy a day after protesters breached the outer security perimeter there and officials said two people were killed in clashes with the police. Still, a group of several dozen protesters gathered near the diplomatic post, carrying placards and shouting slogans.

In Lebanon, hundreds of protesters set alight a KFC restaurant in the northern city of Tripoli on Friday, witnesses said, chanting against Pope Benedict XVI’s visit to the country and shouting anti-American slogans, according to a Reuters report.

In Iraq, where the heavily fortified American Embassy sits on the banks of the Tigris inside the Green Zone and is out of reach to ordinary Iraqis, thousands protested after Friday Prayer, in Sunni and Shiite cities alike..........

I just heard Obama, Biden and Hillary are attending a ceremony [it's all about the continuance of Them] of "a transfer of bodies" from the embassy murders.

The film DOES NOT CAUSE murderous hate in the wicked ignorant Muslims - IT REVEALS IT.

Middle East protests against US embassies - live

“Latest

19.36 (14.36) The ceremony has begun in Maryland now. An emotional-looking Hillary Clinton is paying tribute to the four “patriots and heroes” whose bodies are being returned today.

18.47 (13.47) President Obama is at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland where the remains of the four Americans killed in Libya are due to be repatriated. He’s being joined by some of the most senior members of his cabinet: Vice President Joe Biden, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Secretary of Defence Leon Panetta. Obama will meet with the families of the dead before speaking briefly.

18.33 (13.33) Tunisia’s official news agency is reporting that two people were killed and 29 injured in clashes at the US Embassy in Tunis today.

18.28 (13.28) President Obama has formally notified Congress by letter that he is deploying American forces into Libya and Yemen, as required by the US Constitution.

Although these security forces are equipped for combat, these movements have been undertaken solely for the purpose of protecting American citizens and property. These security forces will remain in Libya and in Yemen until the security situation becomes such that they are no longer needed.

18.20 (13.20) The Foreign Secretary has confirmed that all British and Sudanese staff at the embassy in Khartoum are safe. He says that the German embassy appears to have been the target of the attack and that some of the Germans took refuge in the British embassy during the violence.”..................................

Sounds like a lot of “community organizing” is going on. I do not ever recall that many countries of Muslims getting so up in arms over a stinkin’ movie. Somebody is organizing and deliberately coordinating and fanning the flames. It would not surprise me at all if this traced back to our Organizer-in-chief some way, somehow.

Repeat, Repeat, Repeat...

I’m totally enraged as well. We just gotta keep our message out there...I’m praying the truth will out about their “movie”.

Hillary just blamed the “movie” a few minutes ago on Fox. They lose that and they’re finito.

Oh, gosh, the members of the Religion of Peace are on the warpath? Gee, how unexpected (at least for the Obama/Hillary administration) these COORDINATED demonstrations and attacks are?

When are the aggrieved Muslims going to start blowing people up and murdering them? Oh, wait . . . they have. What's a Kenyan/Muslim/Marxist to do? What will Hillary do to absolve herself?

When are we going to treat this as a act of war and exterminate these Muslim scum?

Just a coincidence the protest of this movie occurred on 9-11 anniversary.

...just saying.

Nothing to do with the braggart Obama killing Osama and the Drone strike kills No. 2 Al Qaeda leader in Pakistan , killed June 04, 2012.

Obama is fool!

He kills #1 & #2 Al Qaeda this summer and he doesn't even allow Marines protecting our embassies to have live ammunition on the 9-11 anniversary.

“The American Cooperative School of Tunis, which caters to expatriate families and is located across the street from the embassy, was burned and completely plundered by protesters, who carried away a range of items including hundreds of laptop computers, children’s toys and musical instruments, the director of the school and members of his staff said. All of the students and faculty members had been evacuated hours before the embassy protest. “

Why do people take their families to these 3rd world he!! holes?

Stop with the film, it’s not the film..... It’s just a beard!

It is the Administrations policy of appeasement perceived as weakness by the savages that would cut off our heads.

Obama and Clinton have blood on their hands with their dangerous alternate view of the world.

Scripture out of the mouth of this satanic demon over the bodies of the fallen is disgraceful.
FUBO!

Exactly right. Not all Muslims are terrorists, but 99.99 percent of terrorists are Muslims. Terrorism is a means to an end, but ISLAM is the real enemy. Islam is a cancerous, ideological death cult.

Jay Carney is so much more disgusting than Baghdad Bob ever was.

The latter was told to lie and had no other choice or death would await him.

Carney is just a pitiful, dishonorable liar.

It’s the kill list and drone attacks not the movie.

Bush rounded them up and tried them.

Obama just assassinates them.

Because there is good money to be made when things are normal there.

What do you want engineers and technicians to do — stay at home and be unemployed?

Wait, how is this possible? This was a spontaneous, unorganized movement according to our government. How is it that there was time to evacuate hours before?
