Sudan protestors storm German embassy

By Associated Press

LAST UPDATED: 06:28 a.m. HST, Sep 14, 2012

BERLIN » Germany's Foreign Minister says the country's embassy in the Sudanese capital of Khartoum has been stormed by protesters and set partially on fire.

Guido Westerwelle told reporters in Berlin on Friday that the Embassy building was "partially in flames but fortunately... the employees are safe."

He says the demonstrators are apparently protesting against an anti-Islam film produced in the United States that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.

He says "I demand from the Sudanese authorities that the safety of the German embassy will be guaranteed immediately and I condemn this anti-Islamic hate video, but still this can't be used as justification for the outbreak of violence — this violence must stop immediately."

Any "Western Nation" embassy will do. Israeli and American embassies are preferred (of course) but they don't care if other "Western" nations are included. After all, "The West" is considered "Christian" and/or "infidel" so any Western country is fair game since not being I zz lam ic they're still enemies of I zz la m in general, especially if they befriend Israel. Where are the SS StormTroopers "problem solvers" when you need them?
