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.

Probably a good reason why more Muslims should read the NT.

AnAnonymous's picture

An ocean between the various translations.

An example once more that there is no discontinuity between an 'American' elite and its base.

See how 'american' elite distorted the words by the Iranian guy.

See how the 'american' guy from the base distorted translations of Q'ran.

Same behaviour.

'Americans' favour uniformity. They sport the same behaviour at various degrees, according to their charge.

LULZBank's picture

Go to the source of the various translations, not difficult to know the authors, and who funded and comissioned them and wont be that difficult to figure out.

Good thing is, they havent or cannot mess with the original Arabic and anyone with knowledge of Arabic can verify which translation is closest and which one going overboard with inserting their own text in the name of translation.

 

PiratePawpaw's picture

"'Americans' favour uniformity"  Really!?!

That has to be the most ridiculous thing you have posted yet. And that is saying something.

TX-Mike's picture

Uh, not seeing that your "translation" is a lot better than the "slanderous" one.  (rolling eyes)

Perhaps the psychos that are rioting over a "insult to the prophet" are reading the first translation and not your long (but not a lot more "peaceful") version.

I really don't care what the details of the text are for the most part.  What I care about are the ACTIONS of enough followers of this "religion".  They are RIOTING and MURDERING because someone said something they don't like..  WTF?!

The real reality is that many of these people are brainwashed from a very early age to HATE people they will never meet.  They are also brainwashed to believe that killing their enemies will result in paradise in heaven.  

It's bad enough that some Christians I know are brainwashed to believe the dinosaurs are fakes planted by satan to test their faith, but at least they are just a delusional group who does little harm to non-believers.  The rioting muslims are KILLING people and breaking other people's sh1t !

 

LULZBank's picture

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).

You wont be forgiving and merciful then?

Okay, Lulz, I'll bite: In your reading of the Koran, what is supposed to happen to apostates? How about to Christians in Muslim countries who try to convert Muslims to the Christian faith? How about to cartoonists and film-makers who inappropriately depict or mock the prophet?

What's supposed to happen to someone who desecrates the Koran?

LULZBank's picture

In your reading of the Koran, what is supposed to happen to apostates?

- 2:256. Let there be no compulsion in religion: Truth stands out clear from Error: whoever rejects evil and believes in Allah hath grasped the most trustworthy hand-hold, that never breaks. And Allah heareth and knoweth all things.

10:99. If it had been thy Lord's will, they would all have believed,- all who are on earth! wilt thou then compel mankind, against their will, to believe!

10:100. No soul can believe, except by the will of Allah, and He will place doubt (or obscurity) on those who will not understand.

3:20. So if they dispute with thee, say: "I have submitted My whole self to Allah and so have those who follow me." And say to the People of the Book and to those who are unlearned: "Do ye (also) submit yourselves?" If they do, they are in right guidance, but if they turn back, Thy duty is to convey the Message; and in Allah's sight are (all) His servants.

 

How about to Christians in Muslim countries who try to convert Muslims to the Christian faith?

- It is wrong and a crime.

How about to cartoonists and film-makers who inappropriately depict or mock the prophet?

- Prophet was ridiculed, stoned, had attempts at his life but he forgave all of them never sought vengence even at the height of their power, infact he even helped some of them out when they were ill or in trouble. Muslims who do such protests and riots are clearly doing against the life example of Prophet and are wrong. (You can confirm that in any book about life of Prophet.

What's supposed to happen to someone who desecrates the Koran?

- Same as above. What belongs to God, God will decide. Fighting, killing, war is ONLY and ONLY allowed in self defence, when your life, family, property or freedom to live your life as you want is actively threatened.

Prophet's grandfather, who was the guardian of Ka'aba, in Mecca, once when he found out a Yemeni King was marching with armies towards to destroy the Ka'aba, he took his cattle and fled. When people asked, he replied "I am protectng what belongs to me, and God can protect what belongs to Him."

This 10 minute video, from an Agnostic Jew woman, could clarify a lot of things.

Your first sentence tells us you do. Please inform. That's what we do on this site. For what little it's worth I was a history minor with a literature major and raised twelve years in schools of a major western religion. Have read about a lot of people doing a lot of interesting things to others. Twenty one years in criminal law have only widened that theme. Do you really think "angry muslims" are an exception to the human drama?

CH1's picture

I seriously doubt that the Muslims will come to my neighborhood. 

I presume you are a Yank. The majority of muslims here are different that muslims in those other places. They are slowly modernizing.

Very unwelcoming to those types.

Sorry to hear.

N. B. Forrest's picture

Calling me a Yank is about as insulting as calling me a Muslim.  Did you notice the Avatar???  One of the most prolific Yankee killers of all time. 

 

I live on an Indian Reservation in Northern Idaho.  I doubt there is a Muslim within 40 miles of here.  Mostly farmers, loggers and welfare queens.  Not a real fertile environment for Muslims.  They don't move to America to be farmers and loggers.  I'm quite fine with the fact that Muslims don't want to live on a rural Indian Reservation. 

 

 

N. B. Forrest's picture

It was a different KKK, but those kind of subtleties are far to complex for most people on this board.  It was the KKK set up to protect Southern Ladies from the raping WHITE Northern Carpet Baggers.  When it turned into a racial thing Gen Forrest disbanded it. 

 

He was a fairly orthodox Presbyterian, not an Occultist and not a Freemason.  Those were just rumors spread about him from Northern detractors. 

 

The modern, and I would say evil, KKK is a completely different organization with different goals and purposes.  They have stolen many images and name of great people and things to try to add legitimacy.  They have clasped on to the cross, the Confederate Flag, General Forrest and others that the founders of such symbols would be appalled at.  Jesus probably wouldn't approve of their use of the cross, President Davis, Gen. Lee, etc. wouldn't approve of their use of the Confederate flag, and Gen Forrest wouldn't approve of their use of his name and image and the use of the organization that he once lead and then disbanded. 

 

However, I'm fighting a losing battle with these explanation in a ADD world with people who don't give a damn about the truth and just want to feign outrage. 

Clashfan's picture

Actually, I appreciate the different take and will certainly consider it. For now, though, the KKK looks to me like a child-raping bunch of SRA satanists giving Christianity and The South a bad name.

I have always heard that Forrest was a Freemason.

Links are appreciated--or sources at least. I can provide plenty for my side but simply stopped at the first I found, for brevity's sake.

Please educate me further. Truth is light.

pazmaker's picture

We are all mis-informed ...It is what we do with that misinformation.    I find too many on this site that buy into the either or mentality rather realize it so much more complex.

For example those who hold to "it's the jews fault"  will defend all muslim radicalism to no end, while those who want to blame muslims for all the violence will defend israel and the jewish people to no end calling them the "chosen" people.

And all the while the uber rich bankers love us all playing the blame game picting one race or one religion agaisnt the other.

It so much more complex......so my question to you Dalago is where do you get your mis-information? and what do you do with it?

 

BooMushroom's picture

I can't do much about central bankers, other than keeping my money out of the banks, and owning silver, gold, and lead. I could do something about someone physically in my house or neighborhood, if they were openly committing crimes of violence. Whether they are wearing a turban or a wife beater is irrelevant.

N. B. Forrest's picture

Excellent post Paz.

 

I don't love the Jews, I'm just a avid reader of Middle East history.  The Israelis have many issues and are quite evil in many ways.  However, the Muslims far out do them in just being downright evil bastards.  So, being a God fearing American... and given that the enemy of my enemy is my friend.  I'm stuck sympathizing with the the Israelis whom I don't really like. 

DaveyJones's picture

Muslims, like well, every other human group, have things and folks they're not proud of. But, like "americans" some of them fear God and mortality too . Unlike "americans" they deal with empires: carving up their gepolitical lines (and leaders) for oil, pushing them suddenly out to set up new countries, getting hit with nuclear and human rights double standards, having first world inflation exported with a vengance, getting blamed for self sponsored attacks ...and a a host of other lovely modern misdemeanors and felonies.  They sit in an unfortunate geological and geopolitical position in one of the most resource strained chapters in human history.

This has very little to do with their "culture," their head dress, or their religious holidays 

PiratePawpaw's picture

Im not pro or anti Muslim or Jewish. To be honest, I dont really care what they think or do as long as they leave me alone. I think they are wrong, but thats between them and god.

However; I havent read anywhere in the bible where god wants me to kill those of his creations which dont believe properly. Or that if I die in the process of said slaying, I will be rewarded in heaven with earthly carnal pleasures (read SIN).

That sounds more like what satan would say. just sayin.

DaveyJones's picture

You're trying to distance yourself from them yet they say "leave me alone" even more than you do.  

PiratePawpaw's picture

Im not entirely sure how this is an answer to my post, but I'll play anyway.

"You're trying to distance yourself from them yet they say "leave me alone" even more than you do.  "

Maybe so, but I offer to leave them alone with their heads still attached.

I've mentioned this "either/or fallacy" (see false dilemma) to ZHers before about this very subject. TY.

Why does one have to choose

between Muzzies and Jews?

because the chess players want us to do that?

Okay, Davey, don't knock chess players. Let me know if you ever want a game. We can play online.

"For example those who hold to "it's the jews fault"  will defend all muslim radicalism to no end, while those who want to blame muslims for all the violence will defend israel and the jewish people to no end calling them the "chosen" people."

I was always the exceptional one, I blame both (and all other religions) and defend none as I am yet (highly doubt I ever will) to find one worthy of such a position.

Religion is nothing more than a control mechanism for some shepherd and his flock (obey me or be cast out and damned for all eternity sums them all up best); regardless of the name and makings of the book in said shepherds duffel bag.

you are looking in the wrong direction.

Hes not looking in the wrong direction, hes trying to direct YOU in the wrong direction.

THe only "right" direction appears to be straight down the rabbit hole. Only bugs and moles to deal with.

Hilarious.

I guess the big diff is the Bankers didn't burn down the American Embassy.

How clever of them.

The bankers cut out the middle man and just burned down America.

@ N.B. Forrest; show your idiot friends the web site for the US State Department and it's list of embassies around the world. You'll note that Benghazi is not on the list. Because this attack is staged entirely for the benefit of you and your idiot friends. 

These are the clues folks.

I'm willing to bet that a good Muslim is about as hard to find as a good Baptist. I'll bet 90%+ don't pray three times a day if at all. Its mostly for show just like the baptist not smoking or drinking or stealing or -you name it.  

About the same percent of baptists hang out in front of abortion clinics as muslims hang out at US embassies. This is like the ebiquitus "killer storm" that you get every fall on every weather channel-- that is mostly bullshit.

Gojam I'm, afraid you are right. I know my friends outside the US can plainly see what Obama, our Government and the people that own them are doing to America.

For many, they somehow believe that having the greatest country stumble will somehow increase the status of their own countries or somehow improve their personal lives.

It won't. Sadly that's what happens when you spend your whole life blaming others for your problems.
