Be sure to read our recent report, 9/11: 3000 Americans for Three Saudi Princes
By reading news reports about Egyptian Muslims who scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo – and then proceeded to take down the U.S. flag and replace it with an al-Qaeda flag – one might get the impression that responsibility for the incident lies with America.
Never mind the fact that this was all done on the anniversary of 9/11, which the Associated Press completely avoided mentioning, while referring to the miscreants as “ultraconservative” more than once. The report also referred to Allah as “God”.
Main ultraconservative Islamist protesters climbed the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Egypt’s capital Tuesday and brought down the flag, replacing it with a black flag with an Islamic inscription to protest a video attacking Islam’s prophet, Muhammad.
Hundreds of protesters marched to the embassy in downtown Cairo, gathering outside its walls and chanting against the movie, which was reportedly produced in the United States.
“Say it, don’t fear: Their ambassador must leave,” the crowd chanted.
Dozens of protesters then scaled the embassy walls, went into the courtyard and took down the flag from a pole. They brought it back to the crowd outside, which tried to burn it, but failing that, tore it apart. The protesters on the wall then raised on the flagpole a black flag with the Muslim declaration of faith on it, “There is no god but God and Muhammad is his prophet.”
The flag, similar to the banner used by al-Qaida, is commonly used by ultraconservatives around the region. Almost all the embassy staff had left the compound before the protest, and the ambassador was out of town.
The protest was sparked by outrage over a video being promoted by an extreme anti-Muslim Egyptian Christian campaigner in the U.S., clips of which are available on the social website YouTube and dubbed in Egyptian Arabic. The video depicts Muhammad as a fraud, showing him having sex and calling for massacres. Muslims find it offensive to depict Muhammad in any fashion, much less in an insulting way.
So a Christian in America is responsible for Muslims in Egypt taking down the U.S. flag on official U.S. territory and replacing it with an al-Qaeda flag on the anniversary of 9/11?!
As for the “ultraconservatives” of the West, wasn’t it us who warned against allowing the Muslim Brotherhood to come to power?
Now, what about this riot-inducing movie? The New York Times has posted a link to the trailer, which was originally posted in July and can be viewed here:
Again, so why the protests on 9/11?
France 24, in Arabic, reported that “Women with Niqab were chanting Ya Awlad al-Saleeb Illa Muhammad Al-Habeeb.” This translates to “Oh, children of the cross, there is none but Muhammad the beloved.” Lending credence to this protest not being about the aforementioned film is the fact that these protests agains the cross are typical in Muslim demonstrations in Egypt. Some might remember the video we posted last month which showed Muslim demonstrators chanting, “Christians, O blind Christians… you will not raise your crosses…”
Here is that video (the relevant portion can be seen at the 6:30 mark):
