COMPLETE MADNESS – AT 9:22 A.M. ET: When will we finally have the courage to say publicly that all cultures aren't equal. Now the Mideast madmen are going after Britain and Germany. From BBC:
Protesters angered by a film mocking Islam have attacked the German and British embassies in the Sudanese capital, Khartoum.
Demonstrators started fires and tore down the German flag, raising an Islamist banner in its place.
In the Lebanese city of Tripoli, one person was killed as demonstrators set fire to a KFC fast-food restaurant.
We all know that Kentucky Fried Chicken is an anti-Muslim conspiracy.
Five people were injured in protests in Cairo, state media said. There are also clashes in the Yemeni capital, Sanaa.
A spokesperson for the UK Foreign Office confirmed to the BBC that a demonstration was taking place outside the embassy in Khartoum, and said Sudanese police were at the scene.
However, the spokesperson could not say whether protesters had entered the embassy, or whether the demonstration was about the anti-Islam film.
In Cairo, police firing tear gas pushed about 500 protesters back from the US embassy. The streets nearby have been blocked with barbed wire, concrete and police vehicles.
Egypt's Islamist President Mohammed Mursi has called for protests to remain peaceful.
Islamist groups and others had called for a peaceful "million-man march" in the city, but a number withdrew those calls on Friday.
I think Louis Farrakhan probably has the copyright on that.
In Lebanon, protesters in Tripoli, in the north of the country, set fire to a KFC branch, sparking clashes with security forces.
COMMENT: I have no idea what the grudge is against Germany and Britain. Perhaps next we'll see the embassies of Sweden and Brazil stormed. Maybe even a Brooks Brothers store. I mean, they must have done something to the prophet?
What is the source of this madness? I think the first place I'd look would be the school systems where the riots are taking place. As Oscar Hammerstein II once wrote: "You've got to be taught to hate." A lot of people in these countries were carefully taught, but we averted our eyes in the name of "multiculturalism."
