International "Love the Prophet Mohammad" Day Results In Good Feeling, Pride, Murder

Warning: Al Jazeera link. Excerpt:

Reports say more than 17 people have died as demonstrations against an anti-Islam video erupted across Pakistan, a day after protesters tried to storm the US embassy in the capital, Islamabad.

Tens of thousands of Pakistanis took to the streets across the country after the government called an impromptu public holiday to let people protest under the banner of "Love the Prophet Day".

In Karachi, armed protesters among a group of 15,000 fired on police, killing two officers, as at least 10 protesters died in the violence. The crowd also burned six cinemas, two banks, a KFC and five police vehicles.

Crowds armed with clubs and bamboo poles converged on the Firdaus picture house, "smashing it up and setting furniture ablaze", according to Gohar Ali, a police officer.

A holiday with a body count.

France is having none of this.

In France, where the publication of cartoons denigrating the Prophet stoked anger over an anti-Islam video made in California, the authorities banned all protests over the issue.

"There will be strictly no exceptions. Demonstrations will be banned and broken up," said Interior Minister Manuel Valls.

Although that may seem itself to be a repudiation of free speech rights, you can't simply ignore all history (and concurrent "protests" in other countries) and pretend you don't know that "protest" means "arson, riots, and murders."

In Malaysia, they're protesting both America and France.

About 3,000 Muslims marched on the US embassy in Malaysia on Friday, burning an American flag, over a US-made film that has sparked anger in the Islamic world.

Although there was no violence, angry demonstrators declared their willingness to sacrifice their lives to defend the honour of Prophet Mohammed and warned "there will be consequences" over the film.

...

Protesters shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) and held up signs denouncing the film, America and Jews.

One placard read: "Obama, our patience has its limit. Don't blame us if your citizens die. Blame yourself. U started it!"

Demonstrators handed a memo to an American embassy official, demanding a US apology, "maximum sentences" for the movie-makers and an investigation into whether there was a "planned agenda to provoke hatred and anger towards Muslims".

Hey, remember when the media used to piously tell us that it was a shame Americans weren't more interested in foreign news, and how they'd sure like to cover more of it?

That seems to have gone out the door lately, eh?

Because there is a full American embargo on this. This is Drudge linking reports from around the world. The American media is still in 47% Wonderland.

AP does digest a series of reports from all over the world.

The chant "Obama, Obama, we're all Osama" shows up at a lot of "protests." Including Norway.

But the media doesn't want to tell you that Obama's supposed Charm Offensive, combined with his Apology Gambit, isn't working. So this is officially non-news.

PROTECT

OBAMA
