You all might remember Florida-based “BURN THE KORAN!” religious wingnut “Pastor” Terry Jones.
Well in memory of 9/11 (which Jones has dubbed “International Judge Mohammad Day“this batshit lunatic helped make and produce an anti-islamic film that depicts Mohammed as a homosexual and child molester which helped push Egyptian protesters to overran the U.S. Embassy in Cairo tear down the American and now the latest reports are saying that the Anti-US violence has now spread to the American consulate in Libya.
An armed mob has attacked the US consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi and set fire to the building, witnesses reported, in what they said was a protest at a film they said offended Islam. A little earlier, Libya’s deputy interior minister Wanis al-Shari, told AFP the crowd had attacked the building and that information was confirmed by the US embassy in the capital Tripoli. “There are fierce clashes between the Libyan army and an armed militia outside the U.S. consulate,” Abdel-Monen Al-Hurr, spokesman for Libya’s Supreme Security Committee, said to Reuters, adding that roads had been closed off and security forces were surrounding the building. A U.S. embassy source said there had been “an attack” on the diplomatic office in Benghazi, but gave no further details.
Last April, eleven people were killed in Afghanistan after riots erupted when Jones burned the Koran outside his Florida “church.”
The Atlantic has details about anti-Islamic movie.
The movie is called Mohammed Nabi al-Muslimin, or Mohammed, Prophet of the Muslims. If you’ve never heard of it, that’s because most of the few clips circulating online are dubbed in Arabic. The above clip, which is allegedly from the film (update: Kurt Werthmuller, a Coptic specialist at the Hudson Institute, says he’s confirmed the clip’s authenticity) is one of the only in English. That’s also because it’s allegedly produced by Florida Pastor Terry Jones (yes, the asshole who burnt the Koran despite Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates’ pleas) and two Egyptians living in the U.S., according to Egyptian press accounts. The Egyptians are allegedly Coptic, the Christian minority that makes up about a tenth of Egypt. [snip] Other scenes in the above clip seem to portray Muslim Egyptian characters, who for some reason all have strong New York accents, as immoral and violent, particularly toward the Christians whom they pursue with near-genocidal fervor. A number of Islam’s founding figures, including the prophet, are accused of homosexuality and child molestation.
