Islamist rioters set fire to German embassy in Sudan; Update: Rioters breach US embassy in Tunis

posted at 10:01 am on September 14, 2012 by Ed Morrissey

The wave of riots at embassies spread today, this time to Sudan — and embassies other than American.  Rioters stormed the German embassy in Khartoum, Sudan, raised an Islamic flag over the building, and set fire to it:

 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.

Why Germany?  Reuters points out that Islamists still seethe over the Mohammed cartoons from a few years ago, especially German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s decision to bestow an award on the Danish cartoonist under siege.

Germany says its staff is safe … “for the moment”:

“The German embassy in Khartoum is currently the target of attacks by violent demonstrators. The embassy staff are safe. The crisis cell at the foreign ministry (in Berlin) is meeting and is in contact with the embassy,” he said in a statement.

Westerwelle said the Sudanese ambassador to Germany had been summoned to his ministry Friday and “unequivocally reminded of his government’s duty to protect diplomatic missions”.

The British embassy in Khartoum fared only a little better:

Protesters against the US-made anti-Islam movie Innocence of Muslims have widened their target to include the UK as well as the US with demonstrators storming the British embassy in Sudan’s capital of Khartoum.

With protests escalating across the Middle East and North Africa, one demonstrator was killed and 25 injured in Tripoli, Lebanon, and 5,000 demonstrators converged on the diplomatic compound in Khartoum.

“We can confirm that a demonstration is taking place in front of the embassy and that local police are at the scene,” a Foreign Office spokesman said of the situation in Sudan.

Apparently, the insistence by the West that they deplore religious debate isn’t working out terribly well.  The more this expands, the less it looks like a flash of grassroots anger, and more like coordination.

Update: Once again, American embassies are under attack, including the Tunis embassy, which has been breached:

Protesters have entered the US embassy in the Tunisia capital Tunis in the latest violence sparked by an anti-Muslim film.

A large fire could be seen burning inside the compound. Police fired teargas at the crowds, who broke windows and set fire to trees.

The Sudanese police were able to stop an attack on the US embassy in Khartoum … at least for now.

Update II: And now it’s Sudan, too:

Update (10:55 a.m. EDT): Gunfire has broken out at the U.S. embassies in both Tunisia and Sudan as protesters attacked. Reuters reports five protesters were injured in Tunisia.

Don’t let this distract us from the important issues of whether Nicki Minaj really endorsed Obama, and whether Mitt Romney’s timing on his criticism amounts to a national scandal.

Good question. In Dinesh D’Souza’s movie 2016:Obama’s America, there was one striking graphic that made take notice. It was a map of the middle/east and Africa with a belt of barbed wire winding its way around much of the region with Israel set apart from it. Islamism is seizing territory and a caliphate or something is being formed based upon hard-lined extremism. The US and European countries are being forced out so that the Islamic noose can tighten and power can be consolidated. The end result has got to be to build a United States of Islam with the intent of destroying Israel. Germany is just today’s victim.

The local politicians and police won’t help defend these embassies. They have to live there after the hullabaloo is over. A few unarmed Marines aren’t going to be able to defend our people and property. If we want to maintain a presence in these Arab countries, there needs to be a better plan for security.

No surprise here.

Do people from other countries seriously think that they won’t be coming after them next?

Does anyone doubt that if the arabs destroy Israel, that other nations are not on their list? Israel will be the first stop on the islamic train ride. The US is definitely on their itinerary.

Maybe the Germans will show some backbone and actually give their Embassy guards live ammunition in case they are attacked.

German media opinions on Obama’s ME policy quoted in Spiegel Online:

The conservative Die Welt writes:

“US President Barack Obama’s Middle East policy is in ruins. Like no president before him, he tried to win over the Arab world. After some initial hesitation, he came out clearly on the side of the democratic revolutions. … In this context, he must accept the fact that he has snubbed old close allies such as Israel, Saudi Arabia and the Egyptian military. And now parts of the freed societies are turning against the country which helped bring them into being. Anti-Americanism in the Arab world has even increased to levels greater than in the Bush era. It’s a bitter outcome for Obama.”

“Obama was naive to believe that one only needed to adopt a new tone and show more respect in order to dispel deep-seated reservations about the free world. In practice, the policies of the Obama administration in the region were not as naive as they may have seemed at times, and the Americans have always been much more involved in the Middle East than the passive Europeans. But Washington has provided the image of a distracted superpower in the process of decline to the societies there. This image of weakness is being exploited by Salafists and al-Qaida, who are active in North Africa from Somalia to Mali.”

“One thing is clear: If jihadists believe they can attack American installations and kill an ambassador on the anniversary of Sept. 11, then America’s deterrent power has declined considerably. For a superpower, it is not enough just to want to be loved. You have to scare the bad guys to keep them in check.”

Jabberwock on September 14, 2012 at 10:22 AM

This bears repeating every so often. Winston Churchill nailed it and warned of this 113 years ago.

How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property – either as a child, a wife, or a concubine – must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the faith: all know how to die but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilisation of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilisation of ancient Rome. – Sir Winston Churchill (The River War, first edition, Vol. II, 1899]

Clearly the Muslim Brotherhood believes that Iran is either very close to achieving it’s nuclear weapons capacity, or that Israel is about to eliminate that capacity.

At either rate, the Muslim Brotherhood is attempting to set the conditions which will precipitate the emergence of the New Islamic Caliphate, which they intend to be the rulers of.

You heard it first here – watch for the signs of the Dems pushing for this action against our free speech, e.g. Joint Chiefs calling a private citizen to tell him to stop speaking against Islam.
