Islamists Storm German & British Embassies in Sudan – Torch Building

Islamists stormed the German Embassy in Sudan today raising the Islamic flag and setting fire to the building.
Reuters reported:

Sudanese demonstrators broke into the German embassy in Khartoum on Friday, raising an Islamic flag and setting the building on fire in a protest against a film that demeaned the Prophet Mohammad, witnesses said.

Police had earlier fired tear gas to try to disperse some 5,000 protesters who had ringed the German embassy and nearby British mission. But a Reuters witness said policemen just stood by when the crowd forced its way into Germany’s mission.

Demonstrators hoisted a black Islamic flag saying in white letters “there is no God but God and Mohammed is his prophet”. They smashed windows, cameras and furniture in the building and then started a fire, witnesses said.

Firefighters arrived to put out the flames.

Employees of Germany’s embassy were safe “for the moment”, Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said in Berlin. He also told Khartoum’s envoy to Berlin that Sudan must protect diplomatic missions on its soil, a foreign ministry statement said.

It was unclear why the two European embassies were singled out since the film, which has outraged Muslims, was made in the United States, and U.S. diplomatic missions have been attacked by Islamist protesters in a number of Arab countries.

The Islamists also stormed the British Embassy in the Sudanese capital.

    Let me repeat what Hillary said, Islam is too big to be bothered by Christian responses.

    So, we will just sweep these murders under the rug and hope that no more killings will occur.

    As I have said, I have prayed to Allah in Pakistan. Thus, you should know my real position on this matter.

    I will use the Auto-Pen the letters to dead mien’s family’s. They are Typical White people. That should do it! And, my far left=wing people will still vote for me!

    Besides, overt military action is So Last Century. And, I could not run a war if I had to.

    I have a crappy campaign to salvage Sure, it sucks but with your help and my cronies at the MSM it will still suck! Vote for crappy 0bama in 2012! Good day.

    Those who torched the embassies just need killing. Their ideology needs extermination.

    You know, that guy lighting the flag in the picture?

    If Obama had a son, he would look like that guy.

    OT — We really knew this was happening, that the Democrats were trying to stir up racial resentment against Republicans to avoid a discussion of the issues, but now there’s an audio record of exactly that.

    How about a campaign spot using this? I’ll even supply the tag line: “We are all in this, together, and current Democratic policies are hurting everybody.”

    We can all b*tch and complain, but nothing will change until you get a man or a woman in the Whitehouse with a set. Obama said he would side with the muslims, and he is siding with the muslims. I truly can’t bear to read the endless list of things Obama is doing to America, her natural allies, and Christians and Jews. I’ve had it. If anyone can’t see we are at war with islam is a fool, idiot, and a dangerous felon. The highest Office in the U.S. has been usurped. Wake up and do something about it. Those hollow point bullets have your names on them.

    Muslims aren’t the only people who can go bat-sh*t crazy about what they believe in.

    Why Germany? Germany doesn’t like us much either.

    It is not about the film. This is who they are. This is what they do. In their countries and elsewhere. Put all visas and aid to offending countries on immediate hold.

    Vermin to be exterminated.

    #4 Easier said than done. It’s an arduous process. If your visa application is approved, you will only get a three-month visa at first, and then you have to prove you can support yourself in Canada with a full-time job.

    My #9 comment was directed to the #4 comment which I guess is on a previous page, to aprilnovember.


    These are the unemployed who have little else to do but burn buildings and shout meaningless slogans about an imaginary God called Allah.

    They kill and destroy to protest a film that accuses them of barbaric behavior. Yet they display barbaric behavior…
