Islamists scaled the walls of the US Embassy in Cairo and torched the American flag today on the 11th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks.
Hundreds of Islamists took part in the protest.

The United States gives $1.3 billion to Egypt’s military each year and offers the nation other aid.

Reuters reported:

Egyptian protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy on Tuesday, tore down the American flag and burned it during a protest over what they said was a film being produced in the United States that insulted Prophet Mohammad.

In place of the U.S. flag, the protesters tried to raise a black flag with the words “There is no God but God, and Mohammad is his messenger”, a Reuters witness said.

Once the U.S. flag was hauled down, some protesters tore it up and showed off pieces to television cameras. Others burned the remains outside the fortress-like embassy building in central Cairo. But some protesters objected to the flag burning.

Many Muslims consider any depiction of the Prophet to be offensive.

“This movie must be banned immediately and an apology should be made,” said 19-year-old Ismail Mahmoud, a member of the so-called “ultras” soccer supporters who played a big role in the uprising that brought down Hosni Mubarak last year.

He called on President Mohamed Mursi, Egypt’s first civilian president and an Islamist, to take action, without giving details of the film that angered him or other protesters.

About 20 people stood on top of the embassy wall, while about 2,000 protesters gathered outside. The demonstrators were mainly supporters of Islamist groups or “ultras” youths.

Rafik Farouk, 38, an Egyptian Christian, also took part. “I am here because I am Egyptian and reject anything that insults Islam or anything that sparks division in Egypt,” he said.

The United States gives $1.3 billion to Egypt’s military each year and offers the nation other aid.

The protesters are chanting “Allahu Akbar!” and carrying Islamists flags.

UPDATE: The protesters were reportedly angry about an anti-Mohammad website and film.

  1. The United States gives $1.3 billion to Egypt’s military each year and offers the nation other aid.

    Terminate all of it.

    Terminate it NOW.

  2. Just why is it Obama is forgiving $1 BILLION that Egypt owes the USA again?

    If that billion is supposed to be a jizyah payment, it didn’t work LOL.

    We need to make sure Congress does not approve this payment.

  3. They are the Religion of Perpetual Outrage. This time it’s a movie. Is there even a film? Or is it in commemoration of what their brothers did on 9/11/2001?

    Interesting day to storm the embassy, isn’t it?

  4. Sure, send them some more money. That will really make them like us if we’re nice to them.

  5. Al Qaeda type flag at a US embassy on 9/11. Nothing to see here as Mr Kraugman would say.

  6. Many Muslims consider any depiction of the Prophet to be offensive.

    So do I — but not for the same reason, I suspect…

  7. this is the fall of the shah of iran meets the fall of saigon.

    it proves obama’s foreign policy has been a total disaster.

    MPAC Releases ‘Not Qualified: Exposing
    America’s Top 25 Pseudo-Experts on Islam’

    Muslims have been warning US for years now, they’ve brought forth
    proof that Obama is in with the Muslim Brotherhood, heck, Egyptians
    have warned US, they even call Obama the real leader of the Muslim
    Brotherhood, and why not, there are numerous Marxist and Muslim
    Brotherhood members embedded throughout our US Governmental
    institutions, most notably in Academia..

  9. We were told that this was “democracy in action,” maybe they meant to say “democrats in action” because this sure looks alot like one of their protests.

    re: #10 September 11, 2012 at 3:52 pm bg

    not that it matters.. /s/

    [ISLAMISM IN ACTION] How does MPAC commemorate 9/11?
    By releasing a “study” on those individuals they deem to be
    “anti-Islam.” Dr. Jasser is named.

    Some points of clarification: Dr. Jasser did not narrate “Obsession”,
    nor was he the subject of the film, as MPAC claims.

    MPAC also asserts that Dr. Jasser has no credibility and doesn’t
    represent Muslims because he does not have a degree in Islamic
    studies. Shall we assume that the entire MPAC staff and all analysts,
    commentators and writers they deem “acceptable” do? Interesting
    to note that their executive director, Salam al-Marayati (who is also
    one of their founders) does not hold a degree in Islamic Studies, but
    in biochemistry and business administration.

  12. First I have heard of this. Meanwhile thousands of Muslims half a world away are really this in tune with what Pastor Jones does in his drive way located down a dirt road from the trailer park off of an I-75 exit? And they have had time to organize and attack the American Embassy.

    Egyptian social media is the bomb! Ooopps, didn’t mean to say that.

    Anywho, seems like someone is looking for any reason to get pissed.

  13. No more aid to nations that don’t support us.

    And, my opinion is that the pastor story is a cover for muslim celebration 11 years later of 9.11.

  14. P.S.:

    US flag at our Egypt embassy is replaced with that of Al-Qaeda.

    US flag on Obama’s campaign website – with that of Sodomites.

  15. Hey! Turn off the bold before you post under all of those different nics.
    Like, you know, it’s kinda obvious after five or six, but eleven?

  16. “… tried to raise a black flag … ”

    Uh, yeah. Appropriate. Whether there’s Arabic writing on it, or a skull-and-crossbones, it pretty much means the same thing.

    = = = = =

    As #3 above said, it’s The Religion of Perpetual Outrage . . . or perhaps The Religion of Perpetual Blackmail: essentially “Waaah!!!! You’ve offended me!!!! Now gimme a little sumthin’ to make it all better. Waaaaaaa!!!!! That was insufficient! GIMME MORE, and NOW, and WIT’ A SMILE ON YER FACE !!! Or my boys here will get REALLY upset and do something you won’t like— capisce???”

    Goons and thugs, the lot of ‘em.

    = = = = =

    Last thing, I promise:
    I ask a personal favor of anybody who reads this: once Mitt Romney is elected, PLEASE– PLEASE– PLEASE!! write both your US Senator and your US Representative and tell them in no uncertain terms: “NO MORE IMMIGRATION FROM MIDDLE EASTERN OR AFRICAN COUNTRIES, OR FROM INDONESIA, OR FROM ANY PART OF THE WORLD THAT HAS A SIGNIFICANT MUSLIM POPULATION. WE DON’T NEED ANY MORE ‘DEARBORNISTAN’ ENCLAVES IN THE USA. PERIOD.”

    Thank you.
