    Cairo -- Angry protesters attacked U.S.
    diplomatic compounds in Libya and Egypt on Tuesday, citing in both
    instances an online film considered offensive to Islam.
    In Cairo, several men
    scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy and tore down its American flag,
    according to CNN producer Mohammed Fahmy, who was on the scene.
    In Libya, witnesses say
    members of a radical Islamist group called Ansar al-Sharia protested
    near the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, where NATO jets established no-fly
    zones last year to blunt ground attacks from then Libyan strongman
    Moammar Gadhafi.
    The group then clashed with security forces in the city, blocking roads leading to the consulate, witnesses said.

    The Libyan government
    notified the United States that an employee at the U.S. Consulate was
    killed, a State Department official told CNN.
    The State Department does
    not have independent confirmation of the death, the official said. The
    nationality of the worker was not immediately known.
    In Egypt, police and army
    personnel formed defensive lines around the U.S. Embassy in an effort
    to prevent demonstrators from advancing, but not before the protesters
    affixed a black flag atop a ladder in the American compound.
    The black flag, which
    hangs in full view from inside the complex, is adorned with white
    characters that read, "There is no God but Allah and Mohammed is his
    messenger," an emblem often used by Islamic radicals.
    A volley of warning shots
    were fired as a large crowd gathered around the compound, although it
    is not clear who fired the shots.




    Egyptian groups point to
    U.S. websites, including YouTube, that have scenes from the film. Some
    anti-Muslim blogs also have flagged the movie.
    In a series of disjointed scenes, filmmakers depict Prophet Mohammed as a child molester, womanizer and ruthless killer.


    Most of the Muslim world considers depictions of Mohammed to be blasphemous and deeply offensive.


    It was not clear late Tuesday who produced the film and under what auspices.


    Embassy officials issued
    a warning to Americans in Egypt, telling them to avoid the
    demonstrations which "may gather in front of the U.S. Embassy, or
    Egyptian government buildings such as the People's Assembly and Ministry
    of Interior."
    "It is unclear if large
    numbers will take to the streets, but clashes may occur should two
    opposing groups come into contact with one another," the U.S. Embassy
    said in a statement. "Large gatherings and non-essential travel in and
    around downtown and Garden City should be avoided this afternoon."
    Frenzied protesters
    could been seen Tuesday afternoon holding up bits of a shredded American
    flag to television camera crews while chanting anti-U.S. slogans.
    An embassy phone
    operator told CNN that the compound had been cleared of diplomatic
    personnel earlier in the day, ahead of the apparent threat, while
    Egyptian riot police and the army were called in.
    "This is an expression
    of a feeling that is thought to be an insult," said Nizih El Naggary, a
    spokesman for the Egyptian Foreign Ministry. "But events like this are
    extremely deplorable. And we have to work to get things under control."
    The Foreign Ministry
    issued a statement Tuesday, pledging to protect embassies and warning of
    the protests' potentially debilitating effects on the Egyptian economy.
    "There are police forces
    at the demonstrations," El Naggary said. "They should be protecting the
    embassy and asking people to leave."
    Several individuals
    claimed responsibility for organizing the demonstrations Tuesday,
    including Salafist leader Wesam Abdel-Wareth, who is president of
    Egypt's conservative Hekma television channel.
    Mohamed al-Zawahiri --
    the brother of al Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawahiri -- added, "We called
    for the peaceful protest joined by different Islamic factions including
    the Islamic Jihad (and the) Hazem Abu Ismael movement."
    "We were surprised to
    see the big numbers show up, including the soccer Ultra fans," he said.
    "I just want to say, how would the Americans feel if films insulting
    leading Christian figures like the pope or historical figures like
    Abraham Lincoln were produced?"
    He added that "the film portrays the prophet in a very ugly manner, alluding to topics like sex, which is not acceptable."


    The U.S. Embassy in Cairo announced that it had canceled visa services for Wednesday.
    It also said in a
    statement that it "condemns the continuing efforts by misguided
    individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims -- as we condemn
    efforts to offend believers of all religions."

    "Respect for religious
    beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy," the statement said. "We
    firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of
    free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others."
    Demonstrations elicited a
    mixture of reactions from the Egyptian street, where last year tens of
    thousands turned out in opposition to former Egyptian President Hosni
    Mubarak.
    This summer, Egypt's
    first Islamist president, Mohamed Morsy, was sworn into power at Tahrir
    Square, the scene of the nation's revolution in 2011.
    Though Tuesday's embassy
    protests are the first that Morsy has dealt with, Egypt recently
    produced similar scenarios when protesters attacked the Israeli and
    Syrian embassies in unrelated episodes.
    "These protests are a
    bad image for Egypt," said a Cairo street vendor named Ahmed. "Of course
    I'm against insulting Islam, but it's the undereducated, poor people
    who are out here causing problems."
    "All I want for Egypt is security and stability," he said. "And as you can see this isn't it."


    The incident occurred on
    the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks as crowds gathered across the
    United States in somber remembrance of a day that left nearly 3,000
    people dead.
    Tuesday's focus on the
    controversial film also drew comparisons to outcry generated from a 2008
    movie produced by an anti-Muslim Dutch lawmaker, which then sought to
    portray Islam as a violent religion.
    Geert Wilders' film
    "Fitna," which he released online, featured images of terrorist acts
    superimposed over verses from the Quran.

    but it's a peaceful religion, right?

    crikey. these stories are popping up all over various news sources today, radio, TV, internet (well duh, right..). Spent some time this morning going thru 9/11 footage, it puts a knot in your stomach even 11 years later. That tuesday morning that turned us from a peace time army to mobilization for a decade plus war.

    Well, if someone insulted Christians or Christ we wouldn't commit Murder now would we?
    You see, Christians condemn murder under ALL circumstances, whereas it's fine for Islamic fundamentalists to murder infidels.
    And THAT'S the difference, isn't it?
    And yet they insist on respect for their religion?
    The very fact that this clown doesn't understand that Christians wouldn't act this way is indictitive of their lack of understanding of our beliefs.
    Or the fact that they really don't care.

    I say we bring all of our troops home IMMEDIATELY!
    Tell our allies they have 1month to evacuate the region. Then we return the whole region back into sand & glass.

    Extreme force is the only thing these people will understand.

    The victim blaming, "US had it coming," and "Christians are just as bad!" game has already begun. The double standard is sickening.

    What did muslims do to earn such blind support? Particularly from people who would otherwise scoff at religion?

    The Muslims kill people, that's what they do to get 'support'.
    Cowards will ALWAYS support that which they fear, out of fear of retribution.
    Christians rarely kill for being insulted, Muslims do it ALL the time.
    So insulting or demonizing Christians is NOT risky, as it is to demonize Muslims.
    Otherwise, these lefty liberals would be ALL OVER the Muslims, for their treatment of women and children if nothing else.
    It's the ONLY thing that makes sense, if Christians treated women and children and animals as the Muslims do, they would be ostracized all over the world. Unless they just started killing people of course.
    It's amazing how these so called "progressives" can support such a religion and people, when just about everything the Muslims stand for is what the liberals rail against!
    So Christian bashing is a "safe" sport for these hypocrits, whereas I would challenge ANY lefty who claims Islam to be a 'good' or peaceful religion to go to any large Muslim city and talk about what Islam needs to do to treat women better.
    How do you suppose THAT would end? "Stoning" comes to mind.

    I think the Islamists probably hacked Youtube. However, Youtube has fixed it and the film works - I just took a look.

    I don't expect this to be much comfort, but I think it's worth sharing. It's been said that the peaceable muslims of the world should speak out against radical islamists. There's a demonstration in a Libyan city doing just that.

    We just watched it too.

    THAT caused riots and murder?

    Goog grief, it was about as serious as Monty Python's The Life of Brian, and no one rioted over the insult to Christ in that one -

    If they wish to join the 21st century, the Islamist moon-worshipers need to grow some skin.

    The middle east has been exploited by Western Civ since the

    medieval crusades.

    To many nationals in that part of the world, we

    are just another set of evil crusaders...
