Libya: Muslims accused of being violent — kill four innocent victims to show they’re not

September 12, 2012

An armed mob protesting over a film they said offended Islam, attacked the US consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday and set fire to the building, killing one American, witnesses and officials said…

Abdelmonoem al-Horr, spokesman for the Libyan interior ministry’s security commission, said rocket-propelled grenades were fired at the consulate from a nearby farm. Security forces and the interior ministry were trying to contain the situation, he added…

The film at the centre of the protests was made by an Israeli-American who describes Islam as a ‘‘cancer’’, the Wall Street Journal says.


That’s silly. Cancer kills people slowly and can usually be cured.

Update: the death toll has now risen to four, including the US Ambassador to Libya.

Update: They’re at it in Yemen, too, and one protester has been shot dead. Quote of the week:

The low-budget movie “Innocence of Muslims,” in which actors have strong American accents, portrays Muslims as immoral and gratuitously violent.

And they’ve just killed four people to show they’re not.
