And yet another Muslim country liberated which ends up attacking Americans. Will we ever learn that it is the Islamic ideology which is the cause for all this tyranny?
The Telegraph reports:
“At least four of them climbed over the embassy walls and tore down the American flag,” a witness said, adding that the demonstrators were angered by a film produced by expatriate members of Egypt’s Christian minority resident in the United States.
The demonstrators raised black flags inscribed with the Muslim profession of belief: “There is no God but God and Mohammed is the prophet of God.”
An official from the US state department, said: “We had some people breach the wall, take the flag down and replace it. What I heard was that it was replaced with a plain black flag. But I maybe not be correct in that.”
Once the US flag was hauled down, protesters tore it up, with some showing off small pieces to television cameras. Then others burned remains.
The film produced in the US apparenlty insults the Prophet Mohammed. Many Muslims consider any depiction of the Prophet to be offensive.
“This movie must be banned immediately and an apology should be made … This is a disgrace,” 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.
Mr Mahmoud called on President Mohamed Mursi, Egypt’s first civilian president and an Islamist, to take action. Many others were supporters of Islamist groups.
About 20 people stood on top of the embassy wall in central Cairo, where about 2,000 protesters had gathered.
“There is no god but Allah, Mohammad is Allah’s messenger. We will sacrifice ourselves for you, Allah’s messenger,” they chanted, with many waving religious flags.
One slogan scrawled on the walls of the embassy, a fortress-like structure that is near Tahrir Square where Egyptians revolted against Mubarak, said: “If your freedom of speech has no limits, may you accept our freedom of action.”
An Egyptian state website carried a statement by Egypt’s Coptic Orthodox church condemning what it said were moves by some Copts living abroad “to finance the production of a film insulting Prophet Mohammad”.
About a 10th of Egypt’s 83 million people are Christians.
It was not immediately clear which film angered protesters.
