Muslims Assault U.S. Embassy in Indonesia By ALI KOTARUMALOS, Associated Press Writer
1 hour, 15 minutes ago

JAKARTA, Indonesia - Hundreds of Muslims protesting caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad tried to storm the U.S. Embassy on Sunday, smashing the windows of a guard post but failing to push through the gates. Several people were injured.

Pakistani security forces, meanwhile, sealed off the capital of Islamabad to block a planned mass demonstration and fired tear gas and gunshots to chase off protesters. In Turkey, tens of thousands gathered in Istanbul chanting slogans against Denmark, Israel and the United States.

Protests over the cartoons, which first appeared in a Danish newspaper in September and have been republished in other European publications and elsewhere, have swept across the Muslim world, growing into mass outlets for rage against the West in general, and Israel and the United States in particular.

Christians also have become targets. Pakistani Muslims protesting in the southern city of Sukkur ransacked and burned a church Sunday after hearing accusations that a Christian man had burned pages of the Quran, Islam's holy book.

That incident came a day after Muslims protesting in the Nigerian city of Maiduguri attacked Christians and burned 15 churches in a three-hour rampage that killed at least 15 people. Some 30 other people have died during protests over the cartoons that erupted about three weeks ago.

In Jakarta, about 400 people marched to the heavily fortified U.S. mission in the center of the city, behind a banner reading "We are ready to attack the enemies of the Prophet."

Protesters throwing stones and brandishing wooden staves tried to break through the gates. They set fire to U.S. flags and a poster of President Bush and smashed the windows of a guard outpost before dispersing after a few minutes.

The U.S. Embassy called the attacks deplorable, describing them as acts of "thuggery."

A protest organizer said the West, and particularly the United States, is attacking Islam.

"They want to destroy Islam through the issue of terrorism ... and all those things are engineered by the United States," said Maksuni, who only uses one name.

"We are fighting America fiercely this time," he said. "And we also are fighting Denmark."

In Pakistan, where protests last week left five people dead, police put up roadblocks around Islamabad to keep people from entering the capital for a planned mass protest called by a coalition of six hard-line Islamic parties, the Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal — United Action Forum.

Authorities also detained several lawmakers and Islamic leaders during raids in three cities and announced they would arrest anyone joining a gathering of more than five people to prevent the demonstration.

Opposition leader Maulana Fazlur Rahman, a senior figure in the Islamic coalition, was eventually given permission to lead a small rally through a square in the city center. The protesters chanted "God is great!" and "Any friend of America is a traitor."

But when about 100 other protesters tried to reach the square, officers fired tear gas and at least one gunshot to chase them off. More gunshots were heard later in the city, but it wasn't clear who fired them. At least two policemen were injured, one bleeding from the head. Several demonstrators also were hurt.

A crowd of 700 people, some throwing stones at police, tried to march toward Islamabad's heavily guarded diplomatic enclave about 1.3 miles from the square but with blocked by troops in armored personnel carriers.

Police also blocked about 1,500 protesters from reaching Islamabad from the city of Peshawar by putting shipping containers and sandbags on a bridge along a highway leading to the capital, said Mohammed Iqbal, a key member of the religious alliance.

Elsewhere in Pakistan, about 600 people staged a protest in Chaman, a town near the Afghan border, burning Danish flags and an effigy of the Danish prime minister.

Such protests prompted Denmark on Sunday to temporarily recall its ambassador to Pakistan, Bent Wigotski, because it was impossible for him "to perform his job duties during the present circumstances," the Danish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

We're in a war for the very survival of the West and 95% of this nation simply refuses to see it, passing it off as "random events" or "it's our fault" or "oh, the game is on TV today, don't have time to think about shit that doesn't really mean anything like Muslims on the other side of the world" .

People hate what they don't understand.....

grow up in a world that teaches harsh guidelines and discipline..they will never understand America...they blame us not realizing that America was is and always will be a melting pot of people..so do they blame white Americans, black Americans, muslim Americans, or maybe Native Americans....do they blame the Churches, the blue collar workers, the bums, the agnostic, the doctors, the lawyers...I ask you...who is America

ignorance is the key to never understanding....they will hate us because they know nothing different. even if I walked in their streets with open arms speaking and acting on a (wrongful) apologetic view begging for their forgiveness I would be killed...to them there is no atonement there is only cleansing of non-muslims. They don't understand us they will always hate us. even though me and many other Americans have done no wrong.

They are obviously being orchestrated and supplied with signs and flags.

We have a large Muslim population in scenic Patterson to be concerned about, luckily they have remained relatively quiet so far.

A Coptic Christian family was attacked there last year, they made a big ph-lap til it was released that they were not Muslim, then silence....

This is only the start of something much worse. Only time will tell. Hopefully the liberals in this country will wake up. These people don't need therapy nor do they need to talk their problems out. These people vehemently hate the US. This includes Cindy Shehaan and the rest of the liberals.

We have been attacked several times by Muslim Extremists. They are burning our crosses and flags. Yet being a Muslim is about peace and tolerance. Whatever.

I propose..................

"The Muzzie's Dilema"

You are in Islamabad with a group of your buds, happily marching towards a Western Embassy ETA (see Vito's pic above- thanks) and loosening up your vocal cords for an afternoon of self righteous fun.

Arriving at the embassy, you see that the walls have been stenciled with the "Mohamed with a Bomb" cartoon that cranked your tractor in the first place. Totally covered.

Would you throw rocks and molatovs at the place to erase the insult, but in doing so attacking the image of the Prophet?

By the beard of Allah, inquiring minds want to know.

No kidding? Good for them. The Sauds called on the French to re-take the grand mosque in Mecca when it was overrun by the crazies in 1979. And the Legion retook a city overrun by African goons in 1978. The French can be hardcore if they choose to be, it just has to be over something important, not little things like stopping the Germans.
