Anti US protestors are likely to continue in Yemen

Protesters storm US Embassy in Sana'a

SAN’A, Yemen—Anti-American protests are expected resume after Friday prayers in response to the anti-Islam film produced in the United States. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton took strong steps Thursday to distance the U.S. government from a movie that has sparked protests throughout the Muslim world including Yemen.

“The U.S. government has absolutely nothing to do with this video. We absolutely reject its content and messages,” Clinton said. “But there is no justification none at all for responding to this video with violence.”

Yemen’s president, Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, quickly apologized to the U.S. for the embassy attack and vowed track down the culprits, just as Libya’s president did. Egypt’s Islamist President Mohammad Morsi, who had been slow to speak out on Tuesday’s assault on the embassy in Cairo, promised Thursday that his government would not allow attacks on diplomatic missions.

In Yemen three killed and thirty people were injured on Thursday clashes between the embassy guards and the angered protestors who kept Chanting “death to America” and “death to Israel,”.

For the first time, over than three thousands Protestors managed to reach the embassy yard destroying 12 vehicles for the embassy. Yemeni security forces who rushed to the scene fired in the air and used tear gas to disperse the demonstrators, driving them out of the compound after about 45 minutes and sealing off the surrounding streets.

Inside the compound grounds, they brought down the American flag in the courtyard and replaced it with a black banner bearing Islam’s declaration of faith – “There is no God but Allah.” They did not enter the main building housing the embassy’s offices, some distance away from the entry reception. Demonstrators set tires ablaze and pelted the compound with rocks.

US law enforcement official says a man named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is behind the anti-Muslim film being blamed for mob attacks on US missions in Egypt, Libya and Yemen.

A man who calls himself Sam Bacile has said he created the film, but The Associated Press on Wednesday connected Nakoula to the Bacile persona.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to discuss an ongoing investigation.

In an AP interview, Nakoula says he managed logistics for the company that produced the film, which mocked Muslims and the prophet Muhammad. He denies that he was Bacile.

The movie is implicated in inflaming mobs that attacked US compounds in Egypt, Libya and Yemen. The US ambassador to Libya and three other Americans were killed.

  • These are dumb moslem asses, there is no film, just a 14 minute stupid clip that the government has nothing to do with. These rioting, murderous savages are backward, ignorant, uneducated, inbred beasts who marry their cousins and like to decapitate. They murder and riot because of their miserable, pitiful lives. They will never be able to live in a democracy, they need a dictator to keep them in line.

    • Perhaps its to do with the fact that the US goes around the world slaughtering people including Yemen citizens

    • Iraqis 1.1 million killed under Bush-Cheney. 12,000 Afghanis killed in 11 years , hunfreds of Yemenis with drones, Somalis, thousands of Syrians killed by US armed gangs to overthrow Assad, 10,000 Libyans in 2011 with bombs and cruise missiles and now likely more. The US wants chaos to establish military bases, and that is a fact which is what is happening on the ground in these countries.

    • Bernard, It's called war not slaughter. The U.S.A. has has done more good, given more in money and blood for the good of all the worlds people than any country ever.

  • I’m telling you something stinks about this whole situation. Neo-Cons move greedy fanatic savages around the Middle East like so many useful tool pawns on a chess board.
    The breaking news in Libya and Egypt is a farce. The same covert-op, Christian, neo-con devils who instigated the protests before the Iran Hostage taking incident during the Carter Administration are perpetrating these traitorous acts AGAIN!

    The situation in Iran led to the defeat of President Jimmy Carter to Ronald 6 Wilson 6 Reagan 6… Conservative wackos actually voted for an actor who played 2nd fiddle to Bonzo.

    Big monied interests are paying off Libyan-Egyptian locals to storm US compounds in a concerted effort to bring down Obama/Biden before the election. By the way, what has Ollie North been up to recently?

  • all countrys that give these people aid and support should leave then to look after them selves and then nuke the savages

  • It has begun though it began long ago. This moment is but part of a well scripted play. All the actors appear surprised but none are. The simpleton news is but just a blip in reality for it is not real. What is real is the hate and the blood. Does society have what it takes to kill an ideology towards god? Where would that slippery slop take anyone even if they didn't believe in god? None of these answers you'll read in the press. If you don't know the blueprint, you don't know the path. It is wide and leads to the destruction of man. Those of learning, they will be practical but also they will be nice for it is politically correct. Those who only know what they have been taught to believe will seek blood and righteousness. Innocence does not matter whether ally or foe as long as objectives for their god are reached. The ends justify the means. Death of innocence is but a bump in the road. The world is about to be shocked into being witness to lemmings as they plunge willingly into the sea. What is horror? It is a person who cares more for an idea than his own life or the innocence of others. Meet Islam. Also, what is a martyr who would rather die than kill innocence? Someone who believes and cares more for an idea than his own life. Meet Christianity. The two sides of the sword will fight over a Jewish text and idea that enmity is sown forever between two people by god. Meet the Jews. Those who live by the sword will die by it.

    People can overthrow countries. Are people capable of stopping an idea about god that is non compromising? Is truth black and white? If you believe so, then woe be unto you. The world is a product of ideas some of which have been hijacked by the enemy.

    Yet none I've met can see the enemy until it is to late. How could the world see the enemy? Bare witness to what they do based upon what they say and decide for themselves each and everyone one. It is not what you believe that only counts but what you do with the belief you have. If someone can't weigh their own soul in their own mind based upon the truth of their own life in reflection to what they believe then they are the poor and theirs is another place like this one that is allocated for their inheritance. In the end, they will hate themselves as well as the innocent.

    But, this is a life of survival of the fittest. Then is man fit enough to stand against the teaching of one or the other of them that profess what "God said"? We see how that has turned out since the reign of man. An idea brought man out of darkness. An idea may well carry all mankind back there. In between are liars for all lie. Who do you believe? Know, they were a liar once as you.

    What does it profit a man to gain the whole world but lose his soul yet knows this and still does it anyway? Today – they have divided the house of man and a house divided cannot stand. Such is why it is ordained that the proud shall fall. Witness the fall of man. It has been a long time in the making and is only the beginning of mankind's decision about who man is and what man will do to combat intolerance. Nothing is good which comes from intolerance but reciprocal hate and its back to an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth. When will they ever learn? To those who oppose them but refuse to fight them awaits martyrdom as lambs to the slaughter. Thus, man will rise up to survive and in doing so will become that which man detests. That is all the justification that the true enemy needs to live another day unto eternity. Game, set, match.
