Afghan protest over anti-Islam film turns into melee; leaves 15 policemen injured

By Anna Coren, CNN

Protesters outside the U.S. Embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan, attacked police officers in a violent demonstration over an anti-Islam film on Monday, raising the specter of a new round of protests that have rocked U.S. diplomatic missions from Libya to Pakistan.

The violent protest came as tensions remained high in the Muslim world, with American embassies and consulates on alert for further backlash over a privately produced video in the United States that mocked the Prophet Mohammed.

    This goddess was married to five brothers. Which one would become the legitimate father of his child should she have one? Dr Charles (renowned author and an authority on India) says that instances of incest are common in Hindu scriptures

    The movie has been out for months -hmmm-the Libyan President said the attack on our Ambassador and other Americans was planned and the attack was from terrorists. the Libyan President said there were no protestors. the night it happened about 125 stormed where the ambassador and the other Americans were. The ambassador was being guarded by people with no arms.
    I wonder what will happen when Obama's movie, suppose to show Obama as the hero who killed Osama, comes out.
    Obama will appear on Letterman, meet with JZ but not with the Prime Minister of Israel?
    Cnn you have been covering up for him and it is shameful and it is coming out-you cannot stop blogs and the blogs all over are telling the truth as you cover up.
    and we could be at the verge of a war and Obama is covering up-I am scared.
    Obama bragged that the world would look at us differently after he was elected and he knew all about the Muslim faith. yeah the world is sure looking at us differently now.
    How about Obama actually throwing us under the bus and blaming a stupid movie no one saw and then he gives billions to Muslims who torture their women, rape them, dispose of them , do not let them vote and must marry and dress the way the males state and then the Republicans have a war against women? shameful Mr. President.
    Quit covering up for the radical Muslims and do your job. If you get in you think the world will change-not it will get worse as the radical Muslims do not care about you one bit or any of us Americans and would rather kill us than not.

  5. A shameful Day in Pakistani History

    Mohammad Ali Jinnah, a chain smoker, tuberculosis patient, atheist muslim lawyer, who jokingly called then Sindhu land occupied by people "Paki-Satan" in Urdu, it literally means "a land of Puking Devils", poor soul never imagined his personal racist joke on some group would become a reality one day country Pakistan he fathered. Pakistan is a land of Puking Devils or Terrorists.

    With such "Dark Age" culture still in existence in India how can the world be healthy and the neighbors prosperous. India poses a grave danger to the world and its deities and leaders set a bad example. Mahatma Gandhi, a pedophile, needs to be exposed and tried posthumously for his child molestation crimes just like the Penn State crowd Sandusky et al. Gandhi's statutes need to be knocked down everywhere they have been put in USA. The hindu deities need to be shattered and trashed. Disgusting figurines of ugly and scary looking characters with demonic personalities. How can hindu children grow up mentally stable looking at such atrocious representations of evil in its most heinous form.

  10. Hinduism: A Repulsive Cult

    We believe that India poses a clear and present danger to the regional security of the world. Hindu cult extremism is on the rise and fanning all terrorism worldwide. Indians are the bankers to and financing terrorism and supporting Talibans and Al Qaeda and harboring them in India. Shame on these Indians. Like the NAZI's they need to be stopped forcefully and immediately without further ado.

    We now need to focus on Pakistani Terrorist Groups (PTGs). Last month, Mrs. Clinton labeled Pakistan-based terrorist group Haqqani a threat to American interest in the South Asia. She also came close on numerous occasions to label Pakistan a terror sponsoring state, and who was that US policy maker who called Pakistan a "ROGUE STATE". Pakistan with a population of little over 180 million Sunni dominated Muslims, there is no value that this nation could bring to the table, except terrorist threats. Their soldiers (terrorists in army uniform) continued to protect al Qaida and terrorists around the world. Pakistani youths are directionless and committing crimes or turning into terrorists out of frustration. Not a day goes by without hearing some bad news out of Pakistan, be it Taliban attacking Pakistani military bases or politicians going after decent individuals like Ambassador Haqqani, or dishonest like HQ Khan leaking Nuclear secretes to enemies of Israel. With current economic turmoil in the US and Europe, we cannot support this liability country forever on our tax dollars. It's time to break up Pakistan into smaller manageable states.

      I think you are being too emotional as is evident from your vitriol. India must cease financing the terrorists and address the Kashmir genocide issue (among others such as Tamils, Maoists etc.) in order for peace to prevail in south Asia. It appears to me that Pakistan considers India as an insignificant player in the region (except for nuisance value) and has gotten away from the south Asian model. It is poised, per my model @ 15% clip – GDP growth – when all cylinders start firing next 12 months. What differentiates Pakistanis from India is that Pakistanis think BIG and have BIG hearts not to mention BIG d!cks for the likes of you. Pettiness is not in their DNA.

    It appears to me that Muslims are the fastest growing segment of world society today. As others are withering away the Muslims seem to be rising again with their contributions as was the case historically when they ruled India and Europe and left behind a legacy of science, art, architecture, culinary et al. One only needs to go to Spain and India to witness this. As immigrants, it is a good thing to be aware of your glorious heritage and be connected with it. The Italian immigrants do it as do the Germans, Polish, Jewish, Hispanic and many other cultures. What really pleasantly surprised me was what I witnessed in the Middle East. A tolerant and progressive Islamic society that has come so far in a few years. Most importantly providing job and economic opportunities to all, Hindus/Indians, Jews, Christians, Muslims, Europeans, Americans, Africans, South Americans, Chinese, and Russians etc. Never have I witnessed such openness and equal opportunities unless you go back to the times of Muslim rule in India and Spain. My conclusion is that the Muslims get it. They are striving to once again take their leadership role in the world order and take this civilization to its next level of excellence. The climb to success and progress is not a linear curve but a stochastic one. Let us join in wishing our Muslim brethren well and much success in their endeavors. If we can't help them let's not pull the rug from under them.

    Islamofascism does not recognize the legal system of their respective nations, only Sharia law. Violence and murder are totally acceptable in the form of Jihad. Opposing viewpoints are met with hostility if they are critical of Islam. There is a concerted effort to stifle intellectual growth in favor of Islamic fundamentalism. Although seemingly multicultural, Islamic fundamentalism holds all others cultures and religions to a double standard, keeping them in perceptual subservience. Even this picture is easily comparable to Germany in the 1930s.

      Thank you for pointing this out. Sir, let me now turn your attention to another phenomenon that is really disconcerting. Perhaps you can enlighten us further on this matter in your next posting.

      "It is no secret that Hitler and his Nazi cronies sought inspiration from Indian extremist groups including the branding of his Nazi Party by adopting the Swastika, a traditionally Hindu symbol and representation of Hindu god Ganesha, as its marketing tool. The thesis being that like the Norwegian massacre the Jewish holocaust orchestrated by Hitler was inspired by the inherently violent cult of Indian Hindus and the manifesto of its then extremist/terrorist groups still in existence today. These groups are now the successors to and carrying out the vision of Al Qaeda all over the world albeit in a clandestine manner."

        I'm sorry, but there is no evidence that India had an influence on German national socialism in the thirties. I rely on primary source material. It prevents people like you from making history up as you so choose.

        New, More Dangerous Hindu Extremist Groups Emerge in India

        Christians concerned as rightwing factions splinter to form militant outfits.
        PUNE, India, October 29 (CDN) — After more than a decade of severe persecution, India’s Christian minority is growing increasingly concerned over the mushrooming of newer and deadlier Hindu extremist groups.

        Gone are the days when Christians had to watch out only for the Vishwa Hindu Parishad (World Hindu Council) and its youth wing, Bajrang Dal, which are closely linked with the most influential Hindu extremist umbrella organization, the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). With voter support faltering for the RSS’s political wing, the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), moderate and extremist sections within the Hindu nationalist movement are blaming each other, and militant splinter groups have emerged.

        Claiming to be breakaway factions of the RSS, new groups with even more extreme ideology are surfacing. The Abhinav Bharat (Pride of India), the Rashtriya Jagran Manch (National Revival Forum), the Sri Ram Sene (Army of god Rama), the Hindu Dharam Sena (Army for Hindu Religion) and the Sanatan Sanstha (Eternal Organization) have launched numerous violent attacks on Christian and Muslim minorities.
