A day by the protests at the American Embassy in Cairo
Egypt Independent (English version of Al-Masry Al-Youm ^ | 09/15/2012 | Aly el-Malky

Posted on 09/15/2012 3:51:22 AM PDT by fso301

At this very moment, Americans are piling into movie theaters, cheering through their popcorn at the notion of the Islamic prophet as a goat-romancing child molester, and sending “The Innocence of Muslims” to the top of the box office charts. It’s an evil that must be stopped at all costs, or at least, “before the film is released in European cinemas,” urges Ahmed Ibrahim as, behind him, three of his colleagues collect rocks off the rubble-strewn street and dump them onto an improvised sling — a tattered and stained Egyptian flag.

The new government over there is making a play for more US money.

They will shut up when the Obama administration rolls over once again.

This is proof that all of this is controlled and created in egypt. I have not heard that a movie even exists... and if it does... it will NEVER appear in a theater... because that theater would go BOOM! evil is as evil does. I will NEVER support those demons again... ever. NOTHING BUT BOMBS AND DEATH FOR egypt.

They will but this is more like how it starts. There is a coordinated effort worldwide by crazed muzzie/Islamists to go after the US, Israel and our allies nothing more or less. Really has noting at all to do with the touted movie the film is just a vehicle. Here's a Newsmax excerpt that shows what really goes on.It all starts at the prayer sessions these animals have on Friday. They get whipped up into a frenzy by their imams,just another world for terrorist managers, IMHO.

Heres an excerpt from a newsmax piece. The heaviest violence came in Sudan, where a prominent sheik on state radio urged protesters to march on the German Embassy to protest alleged anti-Muslim graffiti on mosques in Berlin and then to the U.S. Embassy to protest the film.

"America has long been an enemy to Islam and to Sudan," Sheik Mohammed Jizouly said. Soon after, several hundred Sudanese stormed into the German Embassy, setting part of an embassy building aflame along with trash bins and a parked car. Protesters danced and celebrated around the burning barrels as palls of black smoke billowed into the sky until police firing tear gas drove them out of the compound. Some then began to demonstrate outside the neighboring British Embassy, shouting slogans.

Several thousand then moved on the American Embassy, on the capital's outskirts. They tried to storm the mission, clashing with Sudanese police, who opened fire on some who tried to scale the compound's wall. It was not clear whether any protesters made it into the embassy grounds.

Read more on Newsmax.com:

In essence its all bullshit.These phony priests/imams whatever, whip up these ignorant asshollls into a frenzy, they go out and tear up the town, attack our embassy and then some obscure movie which no on has seen on the internet gets the blame.

Meanwhile the drivebys in the US are plotting why its all Mitt Romneys fault and the hate video that once again no one has even seen!

IF the truth gets out the world will see its a few crazed imams following a world wide caliphate to advance Islam world wide at the expense of the US and our allies.

Accd. to an NBC internet piece featuring Andreeeaaauuuhhh Mitchell when you get past the heroic headlines blaming Sam Bacile, a Ca. real estate guy, supposedly Jewish but turns out he wasn't,Bacile produced the video and showed it "once" to a near empty theatre acd. to nbc. How it got translated int arabic no one seems to know and of course NBC could care less, they dont do research that does not help the dear leader. They have their whipping boy and now they will whip us all into a muslim like frenzy if we fall for their BS. Little mention is made of the coordination of the hit on the embassy in Egypt and others which was well coordinated to occurr on 9/11. The movie/film by Bacile is just a vehicle used to give the mad muzzies an excuse to do what they do best, kill anyone who is not a believer in their phony religion of islam, muhammad and the rest of the BS.

Same holds true with the DBM. Its all the about of the evil Jew Bacile(who turns out not to be a Jew) and the evil Mitt Romney who dared speak out of turn before the drivebys had their agenda for the day set. We all know about their open mike fiasco.

Little mentioned about State Dept. inspired inadequate defenses of the embassy guarded by soldiers with no bullets!!Liberals will get us all killed if we let them.

It’s easy to miss the point of the article if you don’t read beyond the first couple sentences. It’s actually a criticism of the protesters. The opening paragraph expresses the misguided view of 23 year old Ahmed Ibrahim who absurdly thinks the film is a major Hollywood production.

Will anyone, anywhere stand up and tell these deceiving lunatics we HAVE NEVER HEARD of this damned movie until this week?

We are up against a powerful adversary.

True but the order by which most people read articles is the title followed by one or two paragraphs.

Even if someone reads the entire article, the author never dispels any notion of the video being anything more than a few hacked and dubbed scenes from an unrelated movie posted to the internet that no one ever heard of.

I was thinking the same thing.

Blacks in this country say pretty much the same thing about “2016”, people are going to see it because they are racist.

You framed it perfectly however reports this morning are that the egyptian press is outright lying... saying it is widely being shown and is the number two film in America at this time. This is all going to blow up in their faces.

I don't think that was the point of the article. It was a window into the thinking of the protestors, and regular Egyptians who want nothing to do with them. The State Dept and Romney need to read articles like this. (forget obama, he's hopeless)

It is a sad look into what a mess the ME is and how difficult it will be for these countries to be successful. The Egyptians could start by punishing their own mosque leaders who foment the unrest. A few of them disappear over time and life might become a bit quieter over there. Unfortunately, the MB thinks things are going along just fine, so...

Until Obama and Hillary decided to publicize it, which caused the unrest to spread.

On balance it's pretty objective and professional. It tries to explain the power of incendiary propaganda and how susceptible the Middle Eastern masses are to it.

Try this its a little easier to read:

Here is a synopsis of what went down in Egypt and how the entire thing was pre-planned to coincide with 911 and reprisals for us holding the blind sheik in jail etc etc.Any talk about the video being the cause is just political cover for our Dear Leader. It's not accurate.

Petraeus tells a congressional group, including McCain that attacks killing the amabassadeur were planned.

http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2012/09/al-qaeda-took-advantage-of-libyan-protest-cia-chief-says/ ...............

http://www.theblaze.com/stories/reports-embassy-attacks-likely-pre-planned-coordinated/

According to the blaze:

Its salafists who inspired the attacks days before they happened.they were reprisals for us holding the blind sheik Rackhman,any ol excuse will do.

The protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo was announced Aug. 30 by Jamaa Islamiya, a State Department-designated terrorist group, to protest the ongoing imprisonment of its spiritual leader, Sheikh Omar abdel Rahman, who is serving a life sentence in the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

When the video started circulating, Nader Bakkar, the spokesman for the Egyptian Salafist Noor party, which holds about 25% of the seats in parliament, called on people to go to the embassy. He also called on non-Islamist soccer hooligans, known as Ultras, to join the protest. On Monday, the brother of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al Zawahiri, Mohamed, tweeted that people should go to the embassy and “defend the prophet,” Trager said.

WTOP adds of Libya:

The incident does not appear to be a random mob scene, but rather an opportunity that militants seized, sources say. The attackers used a rocket-propelled grenade, a weapon not traditionally carried by protesters, but commonly used by terrorists. The attack is believed to have come in two waves. The first wave got inside of the compound, and a second wave penetrated a secure room inside the building. This fact raises questions about how the attackers knew the location of the rooms inside, sources say.

...................................

The following from FNC the video used as an excuse to do the attacks:no doubt it was a planned attack with info about the "safe house" which only comes from inside info.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2012/09/13/consulate-attack-planned-as-2-part-militant-assault-libyan-official-says/

A Libyan official said Thursday that the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi was a planned, two-part operation that included a raid on a supposedly secret safe house -- an account that comports with what a top U.S. lawmaker told Fox News a day earlier.

On Wednesday, House Intelligence Committee Chairman Mike Rogers told Fox News that the strike was a "coordinated, military-style" operation.

Wanis al-Sharef, eastern Libya's deputy interior minister , then said on Thursday the attacks were suspected to have been timed to mark the 9/11 anniversary and that the militants used civilians protesting an anti-Islam film as cover for their action.

The same official also told Reuters that arrests have been made in connection with the investigation. It's unclear whether those arrested are chief suspects. Sharef said four people were in custody and being interrogated "because they are suspected of helping instigate" the attack, but stressed the Libyan government is still "gathering evidence."

Separately, Sharef offered new details about the operation behind the attack Tuesday. He said U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and another official were killed in the consulate, but that the attackers timed a second wave on the safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff.

He said that second wave killed two more Americans and wounded nearly 30 Libyans and Americans.

The comments continued to contradict initial reports that the attack was a product of angry and violent protests over an anti-Islam film.

Rogers told Fox News he has"no doubt" it was a planned attack and had nothing to do with the film.

.............................

Even USA today admits that the attacks were pre-planned long before they even knew about the video. I just watched the video. Its a piece of crap. Anyone who would pay any attention to that has an IQ of 4.

I tend to agree but I think my point still stands, people read newspapers in one of three ways, by scanning titles, reading the first two paragraphs, or reading the entire article.

You are absolutely right. My point about "that not being the point of the article" referred to your contention that the author never dispelled the notion that the video was ......etc.

The author was not trying to justify or explain about the video; he was showing a window into what's driving these protests, how an ignorant minority is creating the havoc, and the helplessness pther Egyptians feel that do not want this rioting/havoc/etc. I found it informative, is all.
