Tens of Thousands of Muslims Protest Mohammed Film In Nigeria, Call Obama The “Enemy of Islam"

Is this ever going to stop? I’m beginning to think, no.

(Ahram Online) — Tens of thousands of people on Saturday protested in Nigeria’s second city of Kano, burning images of Barack Obama and stomping on the American flag to denounce an anti-Islam film made in the US.

A crowd that included men, children and veiled women stretched for several kilometres (miles) through the city, the largest in Nigeria’s mainly Muslim north, condemning the film that has stirred outrage across the Muslim world.

They shouted “death to America, death to Israel and death to the enemies of Islam,” in a rally that ended with no reported incidents of violence but caused gridlock in the city of roughly 4.5 million people.

The demonstration was organised by the Islamic Movement of Nigeria, a pro-Iranian group that adheres to the Shiite branch of Islam. The group has operated in Africa’s most populous country since the late 1970s.

“We are out today to express our rage and disapproval over this blasphemous film,” said Muhammed Turi, a protest leader and member of the Islamic Movement which organised a similar rally earlier this week in the northern city of Zaria.

Some pictures of US President Barack Obama were set alight, while others were dragged through the dirt and stomped on by protesters shouting “enemy of Islam.”

American and Israeli flags were also defaced and Iranian flags were waved in the air as the group marched towards a palace owned by the Emir of Kano, the top religious figure in the region.

According to a blog.

Or did the blog steal the info from a reputable source?

Hate to tell you but you can find any damned thing you want on blogs.

Axe yourself who the blogger has checking those facts.

Are these the "westernized" people?

Looks like Hillary and Barry's televised advertisements to dog-whistle the Muslims about the "offensive" video is working!

Soon they will have the global crisis they have been waiting for, which will necessitate "postponing" the Presidential election until a more convenient time.

Maybe this is all orchestrated to make people think Obama really isn’t a Muslim, after all, if he was, why would they be protesting him?

You're having a bad day when the people you identify with the most to whom you've so pusillanimously championed, cossetted, bent over backwards and forwards to profusely apologize, appease and appeal to call you their enemy.

Time for a persona makeover to help ease the transition to persona-non- grata after November 4.

These people are stupid. Obama is a muslim or muslim symp with the same mindset as them. He’s also a pathological narcicist.

Insulting him will bring a harsh response. After all, the number one killer of muslims is other muslims...

It's time to reduce our atomic bomb arsenal by unloading it on the muslim world.

Send the first one to Mecca and then every other demonstrating part of the world!

Come now, I find that quite hard to believe.

Unless, it's a cumulative score...

America needs to appease the Muslim hordes, and dump Obama come November. That will show them that we are listening, and feel their pain.

I think it would be interesting to know who supplies all these USA and Isreali flags. Sounds like it may be a good investment opportunity to me!

I HOPE NOT!

In fact, (as long as no other Americans are harmed) I'm hoping the "savages" show their true colors thereby exposing showing the Appeaser in Chief as a failure and no matter how much one kowtows to the Islamic, Supremacist, Jihadists, they will continue to hate (and try to kill) us unless we "Submit!"

yes. Islamic killers tourch churches and kill thousands of Christians, no problem. Point out that a guy named Mo married a 9 year old: blasphemy!
