Full Summary Of The Latest In Anti-American Sentiment

Tyler Durden's picture

Having trouble keeping track of how many countries have now officially rebelled against Pax Americana in the past week? Here is your handy one-stop resource to keep you abreast of all the latest in the embassy storming fad.

Since the map above is as of September 13, don't forget to add Afghanistan and now Pakistan. And further details courtesy of AP:

 

PAKISTAN

Hundreds of protesters demonstrating against the film torched a press club and a government building in the northwestern town of Wari, setting of clashes with police that killed one demonstrator and wounded several others.

Hundreds also clashed with police for a second day in the southern city of Karachi as they tried to reach the U.S. Consulate there. Police lobbed tear gas and fired in the air to disperse the protesters who were from the student wing of the Jamaat-e-Islami party. Police arrested 40 students, but no injuries were reported.

---

AFGHANISTAN

Demonstrations turned violent outside a U.S. military base in Kabul, where about 800 protesters burned cars and threw rocks at Camp Phoenix. Many in the crowd shouted "Death to America!" and "Death to those people who have made a film and insulted our Prophet."

Police fired into the air to hold back about crowd and to prevent it from pushing toward government buildings downtown. More than 20 police officers were slightly injured, most of them hit by rocks. Protests also broke out along the main thoroughfare into Kabul, where demonstrators burned shipping containers and tires. The crowd torched at least one police vehicle before finally dispersing.

---

INDONESIA

Hundreds clashed with police outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, hurling rocks and firebombs and setting tires alight. It was the first violence seen in the world's most populous Muslim country since international outrage over the film exploded last week. Eleven policemen were rushed to the hospital after being pelted with rocks and attacked with bamboo sticks, while four protesters were arrested and one was hospitalized.

Demonstrators burned a picture of President Barack Obama and tried to ignite a fire truck parked outside the embassy after ripping a water hose off the vehicle and torching it, sending black smoke billowing into the sky. Police used water cannons and tear gas to try to disperse the crowd as the protesters shouted "Allahu Akbar," or God is great, and burned a U.S. flag. Demonstrations were also held in the cities of Medan and Bandung.

---

IRAN

Iran's top leader urged the West to show it respects Muslims by blocking the film. Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said Western leaders must prove they are not "accomplices" in a "big crime." Khamenei was quoted on state TV as noting that some nations place restrictions on expression, such as banning Nazi-related sites.

---

EGYPT

An al-Qaida-linked Egyptian jihadist, Ahmed Ashoush, issued a religious edict, or fatwa, saying it is justified to kill anyone who took part in the making of the prophet film.

Ashoush, who was believed close to Osama bin Laden and al-Qaida's current No. 1, Ayman al-Zawahri, heads the relatively obscure "Jihad Group." His edict, posted on a militant website, says the blood of the participants in the movie "should be shed, including the producer, the director and the actors" and that "their killing is a duty of every capable Muslim."

---

WEST BANK

Several hundred Palestinians held a peaceful protest in the city of Ramallah against the film. Men stood on one side, chanting, "We will sacrifice for you, oh Muhammad." Women wearing headscarves stood on the other side, holding up large posters in Arabic, including one that read: "The Prophet is more important than my family."

---

UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

The country's telecommunication regulator said it has blocked access to the video and urged users to report any existing links to the country's Internet providers. Internet users in the Emirates searching by name for the film on YouTube, for example, now get a standard page used for other censored sites in the country saying "this website is not accessible in the UAE." There are loopholes, though, since YouTube itself is not blocked and it is still possible to view the film by clicking recently posted links found within the site.

I hope they come to my town.  I'd love to use these Muslim bastards as target pracitice. 

 

If you are going to riot in my neighborhood, you will be shot.  I talked to my neighbors this weekend, and they're about as fed up with these idiots as I am. 

john39's picture

you fear muslims taking over your world... meanwhile central banker scum has already stolen everything you think you own.   you are looking in the wrong direction.  mission accomplished.

Oh regional Indian's picture

Unbelievable sentiment above. Instead, now is the time to hold neighbourhood meeet-ups. Now Rabbi and Bishop and Maulana should be getting together, showing some brother and sister hood in the neighbourhood.

Now local radio and tv stations should be broad-casting messages of peace and killing the meme.

Instead, neighbours are looseinging their trigger-fingers.

@N. B. Forrest:  Wow.  How do you become so misinformed?   Do you just do whatever fox or cnn tells you to do?

N. B. Forrest's picture

I don 't have a TV, so you pegged  me wrong.  I just read 0Hedge and other like minded sites. 

 

I seriously doubt that the Muslims will come to my neighborhood.  Very unwelcoming to those types. 

THX 1178's picture

Really? Because Zerohedge never flogs anti-muslim sentiment. Thats one of the reasons I like it-- it tends to understand the real problems come from a the Fed, corporate corruption, and government corruption.

N. B. Forrest's picture

0Hedge reports the facts that's why I like them.

 

Students of history can then put them together.  Most of the Muslimphiles here on these pages put together the pieces differently than I do.  That is their prerogative.  I may be wrong in my conclusions. 

 

But I still say, if rioters come to my neighborhood and want to burn down my house and rape me and my family.  There will be a whole lot of dead rioters before they succeed.

Words are cheap - he did certainly attempt to kill the barbarous hoarde invading the homeland.

Forrest was no pacifist, he would have understand exactly what this man just said.

He was a man of honor for his time.

Little known fact (probably scrubbed the intertubes by now)...as a slave owner (he was in fact, as was Grant and his wife, but whatever)...a slave owner...

http://www.yandtblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/03/Grant-Jones-001.jpg

...point being...Forrest found one his slaves beating his wife (meaning the slaves wife) and killed him...dead, right there...no remorse, just a sense of right & wrong.

And done.

DaveyJones's picture

Do you think those who hate us hate us or hate something else? Like something we do? If it's us, what about us? Our religion? the color of our skin? our frisky women? SUVs?  Are they jealous? just like to kill? bored? stupid? What is it? 

 

N. B. Forrest's picture

If you don't know the answer to that question, you really need to read the Quo'ran.  You might find it rather enlightening.  Also, read a few history books on the Middle East.  There is no such thing as unbiased history books, so read the ones written by the Jews, the Christians, and the Muslims.  You might be able to stumble upon some reasons there. 

 

Report back to me when your assignment is completed. 

LULZBank's picture

Why dont you tell us some excerpts?

N. B. Forrest's picture

Since you asked...

"Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Qur’an 2:191
“Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Qur’an 9:123
“When opportunity arises, kill the infidels wherever you catch them.” Qur’an 9:5
“Any religion other than Islam is not acceptable.” Qur’an 3:85
“The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”... Qur’an 9:30
“Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Qur’an 5:33
“Punish the unbelievers with garments of fire, hooked iron rods, boiling water; melt their skin and bellies.” Qur’an22:19
“The unbelievers are stupid; urge the Muslims to fight them.” Qur’an 8:65
“Muslims must not take the infidels as friends.” Qur’an 3:28
“Terrorize and behead those who believe in scriptures other than the Qur’an.” Qur’an 8:12
“Muslims must muster all weapons to terrorize the infidels.” Qur’an8:60

I know some pseudo-intellect will come along and say that these are only to be taken metaphorically,or they are taken out of context.  People will says that most Muslims don’t believe these verses.  When I look at their actions I see a different story.  I see Muslims who actually believe these are the literal words of Allah and must be taken with absolute seriousness. 

 

These bastards don't care if some of their moderate brethren tell them that they are taking these verses out of context.  These bastards don't care if they are suppose to be taken metaphorically.  These are the words of Allah in their mind and are to be obeyed. 

DaveyJones's picture

I'm so relieved to know that no judeo-christians have taken holy verse out of text for land grabs, invasions and resource lifts 

I don't think you can find a religion that has not been used for that hat trick

N. B. Forrest's picture

Ah, but you try to change the subject.  The questions is not, do Christians take their scriptures out of context?, obviously they do.  I'm not here to defend nutty

Christians.  I'm here to say I don't like nutty Muslims. 

DaveyJones's picture

so you're saying you only eat Almond Joy from the Christian candy sales? or do you shoot both door to door?  

Not really a subject change, your first post (together with your rest) argue that angry muslims are such a dangerous exception, we have no choice but to make them target practice (and take pleasure in it) Do you suggest this for all religions? And did Christ encourage target practice? or only bootkick bankers?

TX-Mike's picture

Davey you really are pretty pathetic..  Nut-job Christians as not out rioting and killing people.  Yes the Christians did bad shit in the past, it was called the "Crusades" and they moved on, grew up.  There are plenty of "Christians" I think Jesus would be appaled to see, but that doesn't mean they are out killing people because someone "insulted Jesus".  If someone's religion is so pathetic that no one in the world can speak badly of it, it's an EPIC FAILURE from day one!  Insult a Buddist and see what happens.. NOTHING.  If you don't like Budda, so what?  They Buddist still lives his/her life.  Insult the Pope and what happens, NOTHING!  (It happens all the time).  

The devoted muslims are busily living up to the verse that he cites and you ignore.  They take that sh!t seriously and are making good on the promise.  They want a world wide "caliphate" under which all humans would be ruled.

This is not about a neighborhood filled with people of different cultures living in peace.  This is about extreme and devote followers of a religion that in it's own text calls for the MURDER of non-believers.  If ANYONE came into my neighborhood, rioting, and then onto my property with the intent to at a minimum destroy my property, I will defend my property, our lives, and be completely within the law to do so.  I will not go to jail or regret my actions (I will regret that I was pushed to those extremes).

I don't fear or hate because of skin color or belief system.  I do take ACTIONS very seriously though!

Very good.

Now whos' bases are in the US and who has bases are in the Middle East and who controls their property i.e. oil and other resurces?

So then in all fairness you should also support the right of Muslims to demand that the US stop bombing their neighborhoods, killing their kids and stealing their resources. You'll notice that we are the ones who are occupying them, not the other way around.

TX-Mike's picture

If I was "king" (like Barry), I would pull back 100% of our troups on other country soil..  100%

I would also send exactly $-0- to other countries for at least 2 years so we could get our house of cards more in order.  Between bringing our troups home and keep the money local would give us a chance to deal with our very real domestic MESS we are in.

Let the "UN" go save the world !

Let the sort their own messes out.  Just because I was born in the US doesn't mean I need to be the world's cop.  It sucks for the poor kid in Africa that is born poor and will die poor.  However, I can send money to NON-governmental aid agencies to go help with infrastructure projects (water, sanitation, food, etc), and hope to make a difference.

 

DaveyJones's picture

we've only done bad things "in the past"

True, every moment does pass

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

That's all well and good. But don't make the mistake that we've been propping up dictators and bombing foreigners in order to "save" them. Us intervention in the ME has always been about control of resources and military positioning. Helping the little guy, either foreign or domestic, has never been the goal of government.

N. B. Forrest's picture

Straw man argument Mr. Crockett.  I don't know  that there are many on this site that is arguing for propping up dictators and bombing foreigners. Most of the arguments on this site are about who are indeed the evil bastards.  Most around here think it is the Israelis and Americans who are the bad guys.  I, along with a few other brilliant folks, think it is the Muslims who are the bad guys. 

 

I, and most of the sane people on this web site, think we should completely get the hell out of the MENA.  And take our aid with us.  Let the Sunnis and the Shias and the Jews (and whatever other oddball minorities) fight it all out with each other. 

DaveyJones's picture

remember history, the last thing empires ever do is get out of other people's "business"

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

 

 

And take our aid with us.

 

There you go again. The money used to subjugate the ME politically, economic and militarily is not aid.

Clashfan's picture

No, of course it's not.

But it's called "aid." At that point, we're getting into semantics.

It's bribe money, basically, often used to buy arms back from us in some kind of satanic circle jerk.

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

It's not semantics. Many Americans have come to the conclusion that we should disengage with the ME because we've spent so much money trying to help them but they remain ungrateful to us. The instinct to disengage is marvelous but this illusion Americans have that bombing people is an act of charity should be rooted out and condemned.

Actually; most of the arguments around here are between People who can think for them selves and idiot lemmings who obey the teachings of the god TV.
 
Don't ever let the facts get in your way N.B. Forrest; To Moronica! And beyond! 

Clashfan's picture

I hope someone corrects me if I'm wrong, but first, did "Christians" fight the crusades, or did knights' groups, who took occultist oaths? Careful there.

Second, did the inter-faith violence begin with the crusades or with the violent onslaught of the Muzzies, spurred on by Mohamed, at the beginning of the Islamic faith? Were not people in the region forced to either convert to Islam or die? Doesn't the spread of Islam through violence and force pre-date the crusades?

Things may not always be as simple as they seem?

Even before Izrahole was shoved into the middle of this mess, though, were there not Christians, Jews, and Muslims living relatively peacefully beside each other in Palestine and other areas?

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

 

The Crusades were a series of religious expeditionary wars blessed by Pope Urban II and the Catholic Church, with the stated goal of restoring Christian access to the holy places in and near Jerusalem.

 

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crusades

 

 

Is that Christian enough for you?

 

And then there was the time when the Christian crusaders sacked Christian Constantinople just because it was there and had lots of swag. No Muslims involved in that one at all.

 

The Fourth Crusade (1202–1204) was originally intended to conquer Muslim-controlled Jerusalem by means of an invasion through Egypt. Instead, in April 1204, the Crusaders of Western Europe invaded and sacked the Christian (Eastern Orthodox) city of Constantinople, capital of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantine Empire). This is seen as one of the final acts in the Great Schism between the Eastern Orthodox Church and Roman Catholic Church, and a key turning point in the decline of the Empire and of Christianity in the Near East.

No they we not. If you search the web you can find scans of newspapers from the 1800s with articles of muslims attacking Jews in the Ottoman empire, and then later in the British Mandate. Muslims hating jews isn't something new, dates back to around 619 AD or so.

CrockettAlmanac.com's picture

The most deadly terrorist attack in the history of Palestine and Israel was the bombing of the King David Hotel by Zionists in 1946. Somehow you forgot that. Once you get caught up we can discuss other various bomb and mortar attacks carried out by the Zionists against British and Palestinian targets.

 

The King David Hotel bombing was an attack carried out on 22 July 1946 by the militant right-wing Zionist underground organization the Irgun on the British administrative headquarters for Palestine, which was housed in the King David Hotel in Jerusalem.[1][2][3] 91 people of various nationalities were killed and 46 were injured.[4]

Hi Ho Silver's picture

I didn't forget. I just didn't care to post about it since I knew you were here to do that.

Since you asked...

 

"Slay the unbelievers wherever you find them.” Qur’an 2:191
“Make war on the infidels living in your neighborhood.” Qur’an 9:123

----------------------------------------

Yes I did ask and thanks for posting your slander.

All those TRANSLATIONS are wrong! Why dont you post the real translations?

Ok.. allow me...

Real translation: 191. And slay them wherever ye catch them, and turn them out from where they have Turned you out; for tumult and oppression are worse than slaughter; but fight them not at the Sacred Mosque, unless they (first) fight you there; but if they fight you, slay them.

For context, Verse before says: 4. (But the treaties are) not dissolved with those Pagans with whom ye have entered into alliance and who have not subsequently failed you in aught, nor aided any one against you.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

“The Jews and the Christians are perverts; fight them.”... Qur’an 9:30

Real translation: 30. The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!

“Maim and crucify the infidels if they criticize Islam” Qur’an 5:33

 

Real translation:  33.

With all these instructions about killing and maiming and crucifying and and vanquishing and terror; Allah sounds merciful indeed.

So it went for 7th century warlords.

With all these instructions about killing and maiming and crucifying and and vanquishing and terror; Allah sounds merciful indeed.

Actually, if you read the prior verses, you would realise that it was not being proposed as the "punishments" Muslims should enforce, BUT account of what was the Law during the times of Moses, as per Old Testament :)

32. On that account: We ordained for the Children of Israel that if any one slew a person - unless it be for murder or for spreading mischief in the land - it would be as if he slew the whole people: and if any one saved a life, it would be as if he saved the life of the whole people. Then although there came to them Our apostles with clear signs, yet, even after that, many of them continued to commit excesses in the land.

33. The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger, and strive with might and main for mischief through the land is: execution, or crucifixion, or the cutting off of hands and feet from opposite sides, or exile from the land: that is their disgrace in this world, and a heavy punishment is theirs in the Hereafter;

34. Except for those who repent before they fall into your power: in that case, know that Allah is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful.

PiratePawpaw's picture

Oh, Sorry. "MOST Merciful".

The law was kinda harsh on Jesus too. But he still advocated forgiveness and love ESPECIALLY to transgressors. Not Beheading/dismemberment etc.

LULZBank's picture

True... until he met the money changers.

BTW.. I am not trying to convince you or anyone. My point was just that if someone is going to quote a reference, atleast quote it truthfully, rather than falsyfing it like it that guy NB Forrest did.

You agree with it or not or dislike it is ofcourse your choice and you are entitled to it. No argument there.

PiratePawpaw's picture

I agree with that. You need accurate quotes and info to make intelligent conversation and decisions. I dont claim to know or quote the Quran. I do try to be informed.

My point was that if those are indeed accurate quotes, it is still quite a contrast from the teachings of Jesus. And I personally dont believe that our creator wants me to kill my brethren if they dont worship him like I think they should. I believe he would want me to lead them to water, then he will judge on whether they drank or not. I am supposed to forgive them and love them just as he forgives and loves me.

Im not sayin Im perfect at it, thats just what he says Im supposed to do.

And Im pretty sure Im not gonna have to spend eternety with 72 virgins. (imagine how much closet space they would need for their shoes)

LULZBank's picture

Yes they are quite a contrast to the teachings of Jesus,

Jesus was about forgiveness and Islam is about self defense and enforcing Justice and Freedom, not kill anyone because of religious differences though.

72 virgin story is also fabrication. No such thing in Quran.

Hi Ho Silver's picture

Is it true that moahmmed cut off 800 heads in a single day? I don't recall Jesus having killed anybody so on body count alone mohammed wins hands down. (Unless its not true about him killing people.)

What is the penalty for apostacy in islam? If they got that head chopping thing wrong maybe Saudi Arabia and others have it wrong about that too.

LULZBank's picture

I am not sure, could be.. could not be as History is always written in versions, depending on who's writing it. If you are talking about Battle of Qurayza, against the Jews, than not the first time Jews would be exaggerating their victimhood.

Though, I can say this that muslims are allowed to fully engage with in the battle and not stop till the enemy is subdued, in cases when an ally goes against the peace treaty and actively sabotages or brings harm to the community.

Apostacy, is an individual's choice. There is no penalty.

Head chopping is the death penalty for manslaughter. Only enforced if the victims next of kin insist so, they also have a choice to accept the "blood money" and the offender walks free, or just forgive him. Depends on circumstance, if its a serial killer, psychopath or just an accident or some feud.

BTW, Islam and "actions of muslims" can be 2 totally different things. Not justifying actions of muslims as such, like these cartoon and movie protests or the certain practices in Saudi Arabia or any ME country.
