Embassies close in fear of more protests

Several diplomatic facilities were shuttered Friday as many brace for intensified protests over the anti-Islam movie "Innocence of Muslims," as well as recently published cartoons in a French publication of a figure resembling the Prophet Mohammed.

Demonstrations have raged for days as many in the Muslim world are angry about the U.S.-made film mocking the Prophet Mohammed and the French cartoons. And some believe Friday prayers, a time of protest recently in the Middle East and North Africa, could add fuel to the fire.

Demonstrations occurred in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran Thursday.

    @saywhat...Saudi Arabia is rich by way of American drillers who discovered Saudi Arabia's vast oilfields. (albiet by accident, they were drilling for water when oil was first discovered there) And so Saud's don't need handouts like Jews who are poor.
    The House of Saud still rules there, and along with the ultra-wealthy Bin Laden family, have developed close and personal ties with many US leaders, most famouslt the Bush family.
    There has been no "Arab Spring" there b/c Americans defend the Saud's from their own people, millions of whom view Saud's as renegade muslims. That, and citizens there consume massive amounts of drugs just like US and so are easily scared.
    Libya? Nothing more than liquidating faithful muslims who would rather die than be obese, deep in debt, sodomizing each other, and on government asssistance like US. Invading infidels have never been their cup of tea.

  3. Operation LIBYA

    The King's Colonel Ghadafi goes AWOL to war college in London, learns the art of the coup, and overthrows Libya's government. Millions of Libyan citizens viewd and still view Ghadafi's regime as "renegeade muslim".
    Operation LIBYA: NATO forces bomb Libyan communities known to be filled with faithful muslims of the Quran. Citizens flee for their lives, and upon returning are labled "rebels" and gunned-down by Gahdaffi forces bolstered by 50,000 private contractors trained and armed by the Israeli MOSSAD.

  5. Operation LIBYA

    Just as it took decades to find each and every single mass grave of jews buried by Nazis, for years to come mass graves of Libyan citizens whose only crime was faith in the Quran will be found.
    Does Nazi Bayer AG have a pharma lab in Libya?

    What we have is powerful men the world over running around pulling all sorts of BS as they pretend to be rectifying the very crimes they themselves secretly committed. (aka crimes against international law and umanity. national laws come and go and are constantly making way.)
    AND there is only ONE way they can get away with it. The earth is being filled with small minds confusing love of country with love of government. Occupied peoples basically roll-over for a regime change so in love with government, thinking "well, he's our leader now, might as well follow. Heil Hitler"Vichy French benedict arnolds.
    I CAN HARDLY WAIT until manmade flying saucers scare the sh/t out of you paranoid drug eating peoples of the world...scare you right into dropping your flags and uniting vs. "invading alien terrorists" into a one world order.
    Many will vote Bill Clinton King, no doubt.

    I hold the rotten coward Nakoula Basseley and Terry jones as wellas Morris Sadek for starting this and blaming the Jews and Israel for making and funding this stupid film.... i am a jew and am against any person insulting anothers belief system etc. in fact it is a law from TORAH. Now once again our supposed "friends?" the christians make such a movie and blame it on us... another blood libel.... now millions of misled angry moslems hate us and want to do us harm! I guess this was these pastors intentions since they purposely lied to world media about being jews.... innocent americans have been killed and now thousands of jews are in danger in rotten europe....Hertzl and Dreyfuss affair still valid... America and Canada are the only safe countries beside eretz Yisroel for Jews or Moslems goy fight your own battles! Cowards and liars!

    @ Philip, according to the Blue Book Project, there is NO evidence supporting or disproving this, thats why i asked you. Of course Timothy Good, the author disputes the Blue Book Project totally, so how the heck do you know who to believe?

    @chrissy:
    I haven't heard about that, and I will look into it...and, as everybody knows, the flag that was on the moon was displayed with a L-frame pole, so they *could* show the unfurled flag and photograph it, since there isn't wind on the moon.
    The astronauts have repeatedly stated this...but I haven't heard about the ufo's, so I wiLl check it out.

    @banasy. That flag was flapping in the wind in the recorded videos taken. Nice try though. And ASU did in fact find a copyright symbol on one of the hundreds of rocks NASA said were from the moon. What? Are you thinking Arizona State University are conspiritors?
    "There is nothing carefully concealed that will not be fully revealed."
    To discount these things, one would have to pretend...make-up scenarios where "maybe" this or that happened...maybe a student chizzled a copyright mark on the rock, for example.
    Face the facts: genuine moonrocks do not have copyright marks, and the wind never blows flags on the moon.

    ...and my reply @chrissy asking "how do you know who to believe was posted and then later, deleted by our Maude, mod, whatever. So here goes again:
    @chrissy. Pretend you are on a jury deciding if there really was a moon landing (also, the truth about 9/11, etc). It's not who a jury believes, it's WHAT a jury believes. And so a jury goes over the evidence again and again until a judgement is made.
    Heck. Pretend like you are the jury AND the judge. But don't stop until you have reached a verdict or it was all for nothing.
