Anti-American protest continued today in the streets of Afghanistan, Indonesia, Pakistan and Lebanon. The leader of Hezbollah, Hassan Nasrallah called for more protest over the video “Innocense of Muslims.”
The Hezbollah leader called for fresh protests Monday over the video, which he described as "a dangerous turn in the war against Islam and the great prophet." Protesters were seen carrying posters that read; “No to the insulting of the prophet.” Thousands protested in the streets of Beirut chanting “Death to America”
In Afghanistan, hundreds of demonstrators attacked police officers near the U.S. Embassy in Kabul. In Pakistan, at least one person was killed Monday when protesters clashed with police in an anti-American demonstration along the Afghan border.
And in Indonesia, protesters threw rocks and used slingshots to launch marbles at riot police outside the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta. Police responded with tear gas.
With more and more anti-American outpour since the release of the video last week on Youtube, Islamic leaders are taking advantage of the heightened outrage seen by young, mostly male protesters. They are using the video to promote their propaganda to the uneducated, unemployed, and eager to destroy mob.
It was no coincidence that the original attack on the US Embassy in Libya that killed 4 Americans was on the anniversary of 9/11. Many believe the video is a scapegoat for the killing of the number two leader in Yemen’s Al-Qaeda, Said al-Shihri.
Since last Tuesday, protests have spread to more than 20 nations, and the United States has increased security at its embassies and consulates worldwide.
