Violent protests spread to Australia on fifth day of upheaval over anti-Islam film
Haaertz ^ | 9/15/12

Posted on 09/15/2012 3:06:52 AM PDT by EBH

A demonstration that began with about 200 people outside the U.S. consulate in Sydney swelled to more than twice that number, with protesters appearing to catch police off guard as they marched through the centre of the city.

Some of the chanting protesters carried placards reading "Behead all those who insult the Prophet".

Several streets, usually thronging with weekend shoppers, were blocked off by police as the protest grew. Police, many wearing anti-riot equipment and some on horseback, used dogs and chemical sprays, including tear gas, as they tried to control the protest.

Reuters Television pictures showed one policeman with a head injury being led away by colleagues. Police later said six officers had been injured and eight protesters arrested.

I was wondering why in the world the muzzies would get all crazy less than two months away from the election. After all, if they had only stayed quiet until November, their boy B. Hussein Obama (mmm mmm mmm) would be re-elected. Why this happened could be one of three things:

1) They're just dumb.

2) They believe Romney's gonna win in a landslide, and they want to get in all the destruction they can get in before President Romney begins dropping J-Dams on their demonstrations.

3) God is in control. He allowed Satan and his minions to begin agitating the Arab street, and because they worship a false moon-god, they're helpless to resist.

4) God is in control. He is allowing this because we have leaders in charge who rejected 3 times and then were/are insincere of heart in putting Him back into their stated platform.

Pathetic how the media has accepted the premise that all this is about the film. The Islamists know how to play the media, and liberals, like a fiddle. They’ve figured out that if they can tie their violent outbursts to provocotive cartoons or films or whatever, the post-modern West will tie itself in knots and essentially blame itself.

The media knows better.

What is pathetic is that the Media is working for the Muslims in trying to propagate this lie.

If it hadn’t been this movie it would have been something else. The Muslims want war, and if they keep this crap up they are going to get it.

I went to ABC Australia, and they are updating on this and providing pictures. Their media is saying that the protestors are claiming they are there to defend their prophet over the film, so they are blaming the film as well. They have this block in the article:

The film that triggered the unrest
The film titled Innocence of Muslims mocks the Prophet Mohammed and Islam.
Touches on themes of paedophilia and homosexuality.
Features low-budget production values, with actors in false beards in front of stock desert footage.
Cast members have said they thought it was a fictional epic, and later found their lines had been dubbed over.
Reportedly written by Nakoula Bassily Nakoula, 55, an Egyptian Copt on conditional release from prison.
Directed by 65-year-old Alan Roberts.
Reportedly produced by a US religious group called Media for Christ.
Promoted by a network of right-wing Coptic and Evangelical Christians with a radical anti-Muslim agenda.
Among them is Florida pastor Terry Jones, who spoke to The World Today about his involvement.

Honestly to a degree I agree with you.

But, I was just a kid in the 1970’s and this stuff was going on. So in 40 years or more ‘the west’ hasn't learned to deal with islamics? In 40 years islamics haven't been able to learn to deal with the west?

WE effed up? Yeah...someone created a power vacuum, but these elements have been waiting decades for this. This though is what happens when we elect leaders with no foreign policy understanding in the world. Be it in politics or in business...textbook foreign policy philosophy is no way to operate in the real world.

I like your number one.

1) They're just dumb.

But, I think their perception of Obama is different than ours. They feel betrayed. After all, Jerusalem was put back into the DNC platform, Obama keeps bragging about killing Osama Ben Laden, and Israel still exists.

But the original “upheaval”, which took place on Sept. 11 and included an RPG attack on an embassy, wasn’t about the film. The film was just a cover story to shift blame onto the West and promote aftershocks in other parts of the world. So far it has worked brilliantly. The western media and even the Obama admistration have latched onto the film as the root cause, and Muslims all over the world are seeing this and reacting to the film themselves.

Out of an Australian population of roughly 22 million people, the protesting of 500 is newsworthy? More folks attend the local senior mall walks than that.

I guess the lib media is everywhere.

Lib media or something on a more cultural level? What is the first thing most people do when someone gets upset with them? Even if they know their right, but the other seems immensely upset?

Apologize. The PC liberal world has created several generations of guilt-goaded self-depracting cowards. IF you upset someone of another race, religions, etc. you are a bigot, homophobe, or some other term the PC media dreams up.

This stunning islamic rage over some obscure film is what is odd? No, it is the result of PC thinking if you kiss somebody else's backside enough they will not call you names...like bigots or anti- something else.

The liberal world and mindset ...for whatever reason...cannot come to terms with the idea that there is this 'hate' in islam. If we just hug them harder they will love us is how they think. If we are more grovelling they will back off their rage filled hate...

We need to stop owning THEIR hate! Their hate of America is not something we can remotely control or remove. Their hate is their problem. All our efforts to bring them a freedom they don't want, give them billions of our dollars, do business with them and create jobs in their country ...while we lose jobs here, none of this has stopped their prejudice against America. It is time for America to stop being their enabler.

Among many protesters,it IS about the film. Even if they had not seen it. Among the leaders behind the riots, though, it is about so much more than the film.

And maybe the biggest...he keeps telling the media he is not a muslim, but is a christian (after being raised muslim). I hear that is frowned upon in the Islamic world.

I believe that the muslims are already at war, and have been for hundreds of years. The rest of the non-islamic world has yet to realize that there is a war on.

They also fail to realize that the muslims are prepared to wage war in perpetuity until islam is absolute.

Like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, a muslim who is willing to fight and die for a live and let live policy towards all other religions does not exist.

Americans have a little while before the muslims have true power and influence here. But it will happen if we let it.

True. Ramadan is practice for war. The original muslims lived in the desert. They waged war during the day when their enemies were resting from the heat. This is why during Ramadam, the muslims fast all day and basically stay up all night celebrating and eating. They prepare to fight all day without food and water. The are celebrating the successes and victories from their daytime raids.

It's not really fasting as they just reverse their normal daily schedules. In the modern world they have to interact with others so to us its just a religious ceremony.

In Saudi Arabia the muslims adjust their schedules so that they do not work all day. They come in around 2pm and work into the evening hours.

And the only reason they know about the film is because Obama and Hillary mentioned it, had they kept their mouths shut, there’s no way they would have known about it.

So they question is, why was the Obama Administration so anxious to let people know about the film?
