Egyptians angry at film scale U.S. embassy walls, desecrate American flag

September 11, 2012

Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy in Cairo on Tuesday and pulled down the American flag during a protest over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad, witnesses said.

In place of the U.S. flag, the protesters tried to raise a black flag with the words “There is no God but Allah and Mohammad is his messenger”, a Reuters reporter said.

Once the U.S. flag was hauled down, protesters tore it up, with some showing off small pieces to television cameras. Then others burned remains.

    How they love us. How they respect us!

    On 9/11, a very clear demonstration from our Arab Spring buds.

    On the same day Obama refuses to meet with Netanyahu.

    Sort of clarifies things for American Jews, I hope.

    What’s the name of the movie! I can’t wait to see it! Jackasses.

    They’re protesting a film to be produced by Mosab Hassan Yousef — the son of a Hamas co-founder who became a Shin Bet informant, renounced Islam and converted to Christianity. The film is tentatively titled, the Jihad Model, and is based on Ishaq’s Sirat Rasul Allah, the most complete Arabic biography of the prophet.

    I wonder what happens if some outside group of agitators scales the wall of an Eygptian embassy & burns their flag?

    Don’t we have guards at our embassies?

  5. JohnInMA says:

    The Embassy response is the most embarrassing mishmash of feel good PC intent that ultimately means nothing. Does the U.S., via it’s overseas representatives now rebuke any effort to tell a story about Islam or their prophet?

    “We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

    Try that “universal right” BS in MOST any nation world-wide, you miserable Quisling phuc.
