At least three people were hurt on Friday as dozens of armed terrorists, affiliated with the Salafi movement of Islam, stormed the international peacekeeping force base in the Sinai Peninsula, near the Gaza-Israel border. They were protesting the controversial film mocking the prophet Mohammed which has resulted in protests throughout the Arab world.
Channel 10 News cited reports in the Egyptian media which said the Muslims broke into the base and torched it. The report quoted one senior official as having told the Egyptian newspaper Al-Youm Al-Saba that shots were fired from within the base at firefighters who came to put the flames.
Another source said that 50 armed vehicles arrived at the base and that an exchange of gunfire was taking place.
Channel 2 News reported that IDF helicopters were called in to evacuate the wounded soldiers. Magen David Adom paramedics were preparing on the Israeli side of the border to take the soldiers for treatment at the Soroka Hospital in Be'er Sheva.
Anti-U.S. protests erupted across the Muslim world on Friday, as violence exploded in Sudan, Lebanon and Yemen leaving two people dead and dozens wounded.
In Cairo, where the first protests against the film broke out on Tuesday, protesters again clashed with police outside the U.S. embassy, although calm returned later after the Muslim Brotherhood withdrew a call for nationwide demonstrations, saying it wanted to avoid loss of life and damage to property.

Do you really think it is about a stupid movie?
Pres. Obama bragging about killing Osama Bin Laden at the DNC convention?
It’s THE MOVIE, THAT MOVIE!!
If only they hadn’t made that movie, everyone would be living in the peace we enjoyed for so many centuries before they made THE MOVIE!!
S@#$, yeah, they planned it! I wouldn’t have even heard of the movie if they hadn’t killed a diplomat over it. Can’t understand why they never rioted when The Incredible Racist showed up at a mosque with a tee-shirt saying “I went to Mecca and all I got was this horrible BO”. That was worth a good riot or three, but it’s been up on the Internet forever, without so much as anyone saying ‘boo’.
“He Maketh a Dessert, humpeth his sheep and donkeys in it, killeth his daughter for watching MTV, and calleth it piece”—Seneca (somewhat revised)
0bama knew this movie was coming and did nothing about it!
Just think how much worse things would be if these people weren’t members of the Religion Of Peace.
What if they were members of the Religion Of Moonbat leftist College Graduates?
Or what about Bill mahers anti religion movie?
Then they’d be attacking Christianity or Judaism in their own films, and getting NEA grants.
