  • Newsweek's 'Muslim Rage' cover sparks controversy

    09/18/2012 3:55:53 PM PDT · by bronxville · 25 replies ^ | 09-18-2012 | Ayaan Hirsi Ali
    The cover story is written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a well-known Somali-born rights activist and former Dutch lawmaker whose criticism of Islam has earned her death threats. In it, she describes her own experience of renouncing Islam as well as making a short film with Theo van Gogh about Muslim women that saw the Dutch filmmaker shot and stabbed to death. The article comes as Muslims in at least 20 countries have staged angry demonstrations outside US embassies and other American symbols in protest against an anti-Islam film called "Innocence of Muslims."

    AGI) Beirut - The Moscow-based website 'Russia Today' reports the U.S. embassy in Lebanon has begun to destroy secret codes and classified documents. The reason given is the large demonstration against the 'Innocence of Muslims' now taking place in Beirut and organized by Hezbollah. After listening to a speech by the organization's leader, Hassan Nasrallah, about 100,000 demonstrators, segregated by gender, began marching through Beirut. 'Russia Today' intimated that, according to U.S. diplomatic sources, an assault on the embassy is feared. . .

    In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, Fox News military analyst Colonel David Hunt laid the blame for the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans at the Benghazi, Libya American mission on Hillary Clinton and the State Department: The State Department just allowed our guys to get killed. If you approve no bullets in guns for the mission security guards and an outhouse for a mission, you’re inviting it. Earlier, on Howie Carr's radio show Thursday, Colonel Hunt said that the American mission at Benghazi "was like a cardboard building, there wasn't even bullet proof glass." In addition,...

    The attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi that killed American ambassador Chris Stevens was pre-planned and included foreigners, Libyan President said yesterday. President of Libya’s National Congress, Mohamed Magariaf, in an interview to the CBS news aired yesterday said his government has arrested about 50 people, some of which are foreigners and connected to al-Qaeda. “They entered Libya from different directions, and some of them definitely from Mali and Algeria,” he said. “These ugly deeds, criminal deeds were directed against them, the late ambassador, Chris Stevens, and his colleagues, does not represent in any way, in any sense, the...

    After the violent clashes in the Middle East last week where several Americans– including the U.S. Ambassador to Libya– were killed, Muslims in Australia have begun to riot as well. Allegedly protesting an anti-Muslim film, the protesters took to the streets in Sydney with signs that read, “behead all those who insult the prophet” and “down, down USA.” The Australian writes: Capsicum spray was fired, leaving faces red and inflamed, while one man was seen being dragged along the ground with blood dripping down his face. Superintendent Mark Walton later said he believed some people went to the protest “armed”,...

    Remember back in the beginning of 2011 when Obama told us about the freedom lovers in Egypt and Libya living under the oppression of dictators and needing our immediate help to establish democracy in their fair lands? .... Yep, these "yearners for democracy" turned out to be radicals of radicals who'd like nothing more than to eradicate the U.S. and Israel and establish a global bounce house for all things Muslim. Whoopsie, eh Mr. President? You kind of misjudged that one, senor. At least I hope Obama misjudged their end game because if he had even an inkling that they...

    I knew Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was a friend of mine. And Mitt Romney is reminding me an awful lot of Ronald Reagan. The comments for which Romney is being so relentlessly and viciously scorned by Barack Obama and his merry band of media puppets sounds to me exactly like comments Ronald Reagan would have made. It is indeed "disgraceful" for the US government to respond to the threat of an attack against an American embassy by issuing a statement condemning "the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims" and denouncing hurting their feelings as...

    CAIRO - Hundreds of riot police sealed off the area near the US Embassy in Cairo on Saturday and the interior minister said he would restore calm after four days of clashes between police and Egyptians incensed by a film denigrating the Prophet Mohammad. A 35-year-old protester was killed and dozens of people were injured in clashes overnight. The authorities closed the street leading to the embassy where the demonstrators had spent four days throwing rocks and petrol bombs at police. The area was quieter early on Saturday. A Reuters reporter saw police push several young men into trucks. Two...

    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 black Islamic flag is currently flying over the U.S. embassy in Tunisia after it had been stormed by an angry mob of protesters, who were upset over an anti-Islam film that was made by Americans. This is just one of many incidents occurring around the world today, in which Americans are being targeted. In Tunis, the mob overran the compound, scaling walls and setting fire to trees before tearing down the American flag and replacing it with a symbol of Islam. It is not thought that any U.S. staff were actually in the embassy in Tunis. An American school...
