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.

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.

To be fair he was just watching the White House Twitter feed.

He was pretty sure the only news of the day was a Jay-Z & Beyonce fundraiser and Romney not releasing tax forms from 2003.

No seriously, that is all Obama has tweeted about all day.

you’re craving the punishment tonight, aren’t you, sweetie.

Outside the embassy, thousands of demonstrators gathered, including stone-throwing protesters who clashed with police, an Associated Press reporter on the scene said. Officers responded with tear gas and gunshots.

Protesters also set fire to an American school adjacent to the embassy compound, and firefighters were prevented from approaching by the large crowd. Thick columns of black smoke wafted through the neighborhood. The group that breached the embassy’s outer wall was pushed back outside by police and special forces<.

massrighty on September 14, 2012 at 1:36 PM

I agree. For someone to persist in arguing the way sesqui does is one of two things…
either it supports the rioters/terrorists
or it, to quote..”is not letting a crisis go to waste” so it can post all day on a forum. Sort of sad actually.

Okay, not sort of sad…more like disgusting.

Your ignorance is becoming too difficult to overlook.

An embassy, is considered a mission, a group of ambassadors first. An actual building is secondary to the meaning, and not necessary to for an embassy.

Please refrain from posing as educated.

Schadenfreude on September 14, 2012 at 1:56 PM

An embassy is the larger representation, but a consulate is only a smaller version of the embassy. Consulates in a sense can be called junior embassies. Embassies are permanent diplomatic missions generally located in a county’s capital. Consulates are located only in bigger cities and not in the capital city.

A quick rule of thumb is to stop playing when the goal-posts move. Unless you are enjoying the running around, or you feel like someone might wrongly believe that the other team put forward an idea for which there was no answer.

Just talking.

The frustrating thing about all of this is that teen-politicos and “old people” posting in the Hot Air comment section saw every lick of these fires days ago — let alone all the bobbing heads and our super-government. No one had to be in harms way. No one ever does. We know what to do. The only place these weak and petty people can stab us is where we let them, and we stand there and let them. I think it’s our fault — though the fault has nothing to do with hurting anyone’s feelings.

Put on a ha-jib and make for the airport if nothing else. Let’s not stand there and wring our hands and die because we refuse to accept what’s real.

OReilly asked last night what’s an appropriate punishment for Egypt and Libya, etc. Here’s my take on it:

We should immediately close every single embassy or consulate that is successfully attacked this weekend, and abandon them entirely – cut off all aid, all commerce, all travel and trade with those countries, revoke all visas for their citizens currently in the US, expel them and their diplomats immediately, and shutter their embassies here.

Then, after our diplomats and staff are safely evacuated, we give 30 minutes notice to each country to clear the area, and then bomb and burn our own embassy compounds in their countries to absolute rubble. Then, we don’t re-establish any sort of relations, diplomatic, trade, travel or otherwise, until regime change brings civil characters back to power in those countries, and pay us in advance to rebuild our facilities.

And that’s just the beginning of punishment for Egypt and Libya right now, as well as every other country that allows a breach of our diplomatic facilities or harm to come to Americans in their countries. Then, the issue of serving justice on those responsible for aiding and abetting, and committing the murder of US citizens must be satisfied.

there’s no embassy in benghazi you pathetic idiot.

Our ambassador was murdered and probably raped and you’re arguing semantics.

You Obama cultists are sickening.

So far Hezbollah has just taken out the local KFC. No idea why.

I agree with you though. The IDF must be preparing for the worst.

Harbingeing on September 14, 2012 at 2:14 PM

That is an intriguing idea. It would be a nice object lesson. It would have to be thought through carefully and reliable allies would need to be informed.

Speaking of Khartoum, here is the famous scene where Charlton Heston as Gordon tries to negotiate with the Mahdi, superbly portrayed by Olivier. You will find The Expected One’s point of view astonishingly familiar.

You could trace Africa and stop at China and it would all make sense, but — those blue pins up in London and the Netherlands sort of tells the story. :)

That ridiculous out-in-the water is the Maldives. Guess they are not underwater yet. Obama must have lowered the sea or something.

Same as with the stimulus, let’s repeat what is NOT working.

Only fools do the same thing and expect different results. It’s the definition of insanity. Vote for Obama, creeps.

Dear God. Obama, Biden and Mrs Clinton are at Andrews to meet the remains of the Libyan victims. They just couldn’t quietly stay away. There is no shame with these human dregs. No family deserves to have their pain and grief used as a stomach churning propaganda tool.

They should apologize and take blame for their deaths by ignoring the 48-hour warning of attacks.

Here’s the defense of moderate citizens in Benghazi. And the attack of those expressing their First Amendment rights. She just called the movies unacceptable….. not her place to make the value judgment. Tool.

Have to change the channel. Gordon Ramsey beats Hillary and Obama any day.

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.

Five “protesters” were injured.
I wonder how many attackers protested?
