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.

there are protests against the US in the arab world, and they will soon die down.

sesquipedalian on September 14, 2012 at 1:02 PM

These are not protests. They’re riots. They’re ripping down flags and putting their own up. They’re setting the f**king places on fire. They murdered our ambassador, as well as other US citizens. What the f**k has to happen in order for you to wake up and realize that this is not going to “die down”, especially happening as it is during the “Arab Spring”?

I read here that you’re pulling for Obama to FAIL here.

Which means US international foreign policy is even further degraded.

sesquipedalian on September 14, 2012 at 1:04 PM

Yes, he was. He started the trend of officially referring to Islam as “the religion of peace”. It’s insulting enough on its face, effectively saying that other religions aren’t focused on peace, but the fact that they are the ONLY religion in the world that has been regularly blowing people the f**k up for the last couple of decades, makes the nomenclature all the more mind-blowing.

breach the sanctity of american soil- die instantly. period.

remove our embassies, kick their embassies out of our country. cut off all aid. make parking lots.

no embassy has been burned down and all personnel is safe. this bedwetting about the protests needs to stop.

There you go. For all of you who think it is worth trying to argue with this guy, he really is living in some fantasy land of the left’s own creation. Apparently Mr. Stevens and the three other gentlemen are safe and sound in their embassy and the other embassies that have been evacuated are still standing in pristine condition.

JAGonzo on September 14, 2012 at 1:31 PM

And where are those mobs now? Oh yeah, they’ve been routed for decades.

Meanwhile, in the 21st century, mobs of 7th century savages are murdering American citizens and officials

MadisonConservative on September 14, 2012 at 1:22 PM

how are they different from 1930s American lynch mobs? you know, where god-fearing Americans thought it completely acceptable to hang blacks on trees, murdering innocent people in the name of their deluded sense of racial superiority?

‘This is not a case of protests directed at the United States writ large or at U.S. policy, this is in response to a video that is offensive to Muslims’

Because it hasn’t been the 1930s for nearly a century, you goddamned imbecile. We’ve rejected that mentality and it has been condemned without any claims of “understanding” for decades.

You’re deflecting from the actions of people who just murdered American citizens. Are you a US citizen? If so, you should be ashamed, you cowardly quisling.

Hey sesqui, remember when you said we’d have to warn too many embassies and I said you could basically just focus on the Arab League?

Hmm…Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Sudan…it’s almost like these countries have something in common….quick, someone get Mycroft Holmes on the horn! We have a mystery to solve!

You naive morons, the ambassador was not set on fire. He was just sodomized and killed. Carry on.

Schadenfreude on September 14, 2012 at 1:25 PM

But listen, his family has the right to request an autopsy and see the results…they can’t lie to our faces that he died of asphyxia, if he in fact was sodomized and then killed or summary executed…if this is true, sooner or later members of his family will speak…I’d be angry like heck if I were his family, angry at this incompetent administration and state department…

Bengazi, Cairo, Tunis, Karthoum, including the German embassy in Karthoum, at least four Americans killed since Wednesday.

Turn on your television or radio if you have one and find something besides MSNBC and you might find just a little elightenment, Sweetie-britches.

There is a vast difference between ingorance and stupidity. People suffering from the first have the excuse that they just don’t know any better. I believe you bask in the latter.

Protesters stormed the US Embassy in the Tunisian capital Tunis, with plumes of black smoke pouring from near the compound.

Police fired tear gas at the crowds, who smashed windows in the building and torched trees.

At least two people were killed and 28 wounded during the clashes, according to Tunisian state TV.

Those plumes of smoke must just be from all the peaceful Muslims smoking hookah, though.

Good Solid B-Plus on September 14, 2012 at 1:38 PM

The embassies haven’t actually been torn down, their just surrounded by murderous mobs hoisting Al Queda flags and pelting them with pretty much everything.

Why, I’d be surprised if the ambassadors aren’t having tea on the front lawn and engaging in small talk.

Bishop on September 14, 2012 at 1:38 PM

by breitbart, what an imbecile you are. the ambassador was killed 2 days ago at a lesser-protected outpost in benghazi. not an embassy. embassies are heavily guarded.

Um, no, it wasn’t. It was protected by four Libyan guards and zero US military, and it was one of the guards that tipped off the mob to where the ambassador was.

there are no US embassies on fire. stop the hysteria and switch from fox to a news channel.

I wonder if the reason he doesn’t take intelligence briefings is because he wants to have deniability. If he takes the briefings then he has to excuse his negligence, and claiming some crap reason like “too busy” is easier to get by than excusing negligence.
