Protesters torch KFC, Hardee’s in Lebanon’s Tripoli

Protesters in a number of countries across the Muslim world vented anger against the West on Friday as the controversy over an anti-Islamic film raged, with a KFC restaurant torched in Lebanon, violent attacks on U.S. embassies in Sudan and Tunis and fierce protests in Egypt, Jordan and Pakistan.

U.S. embassies and consulates are braced for trouble on the Muslim day of prayer, when demonstrations are often held, following the attack on the consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which killed U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans.

Lebanese men ransack American fast food chains Hardee's and KFC as they protest against the controversial film "Innocence of Muslims" in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Sept. 14.
Hundreds of protesters set alight a Kentucky Fried Chicken and a Hardee's restaurant in the northern Lebanese city of Tripoli on Sept. 14, witnesses said, chanting against the pope's visit to Lebanon and shouting anti-American slogans.

 

One observer commented as he watched the mob venting anger   over the  anti-Islamic film  . “What have these fast food outlets  to do with the film ?”

        well i am sorry you are taking my remarks negatively they are just meant to be educational and of course we think of each other since we keep on retaliating in writing. i do not try to figure you out; i think you are somewhere on maameltein beach; maybe metn though; i could still be wrong. I salute your freedom of speech however i deplore the way you are subjectively biased: you do not judge the content; you just agree on rubbish because it goes in your direction and you dislike jewels because they go in an opposite direction. Intelligent people always care about how people react to what they say without necessarily having to take it into consideration except that, because we live in a society thus interaction is important, when you want to market a product, you need to present it in a way the public accepts it. I noticed you are bored in life: “sa’imtou takalifa al hayati wa man ya3esh samanina 7awlan la aba laka yas’ami”; even though many think i am a shia yet i drink alcohol but i wish, despite the fact you think i despise you, you are not an addict, a feature which sometimes might  be reflected in your words.
        Last but not least, you are not at all disturbing me otherwise i wouldn’t even take time to answer you; i am not here for any agenda unlike many here; i am here as a free CHRISTIAN LEBANESE, realising sadly what the politics of our leaders had as disastrous consequences; even though i might have appeared as blunt on certain occasion, this is just my lebanese eastern side which does not always tolerate insults; i never started by attacking anyone personally and i never used big words unlike what i was subdued to, a level that does not bring too high the blog. As far as this blog is concerned, it is not really a free speech blog because anything that is against it is blocked while they tolerate insults from their own partisans. I myself had a blog for 15 years and there i allowed pêople to insult me personally; i was used to sissies on my side who did not tolerate being insulted while insulting others: i was more fair and either blocked both or allowed both. The reason i closed my blog is that i radically changed my philosophy; hizbollah, which i was stronly against originally, made me change my stance. BTW, only idiots do not change opinions

    the moslem mobs in tripoli proved the movie maker is right , and it is  violent religion!!,ripping the pope picture in tripoli should be a wake up call that sunnis fanatic will make syria worst than now. The christians watched al keada training in afganistan on shooting target that were crosses ,no one went and killed moslems. Ifthe moslem continue in such mob behaviour expect the west to react one day and god help the moslems when the west retaliate!!!

      i wished you specified the salafis rathee than say the moslems; it is obvious israel is behiond the movie, whether it is a coptic or a shia or even a hizbollah operational: he is just a mossad undercover. I am not disagrreing with freedom of speech, howevver these reactions, barbaric i agree, are well known and expected. Who will profiot from that? israel. Israel which is losing ground; israel which is losing american support; israel whose existence is in jeopardy; israel which cannot survive economically without arican support which is getting scarcer and scarcer. Do ot convince me please that copts will be prrofiting from it. Mind you the egyptian salafis did not attack the copts yet: isnt it a sign that the salafis are allies with the yahood thus sparing the copt for the time being awaiting some more weapons to arrive to the copts? at least it is a strong signal All i hope is that the copts do not fall into the same mistake the christians did because this will annihilate their power; if america wants to give them an independant country which i believe they deserve, none deserves to live with the bestiality of the salafis except geagea, it will be done in less than 2 minutes by an ordeer coming from the white house

      • Rubbish. The film maker was coptic. There’s nothing more remote than Israelis and Muslim radicals. 

        • saoudiAhbal

          there are no better friends except two blind radicals: a salafi musslum, a radical christian, a radical jew, a radical atheist like 5th, at least claiming to be so (i believe she is a radical jew in hiding). these radicals have common interest: turmoil. they may not love each other actually they hate each other till death yet they help each other knowingly or unknowingly. I believe 5thdrawer is best helper of salafis in this blog as well as radical orthodox judaism; yet 5th drawer pretends to be atheist; a radical atheist. Grand orient de france, a notorious atheist masonic organisation starts their meetings by:”a bas la calotte” to mean down with the pope; same with jews same with salafis. Hizbollah on contrary were welcoming the pope on their website much more than the self nominated radical christian the maffiosi geagea who pretended he cannot meet the pope for security reasons; stupid argument

          Ahbel … Habibi. (fluttering eyes 😉
          So … you can’t figure me out … I see it bothers some that I’m a square peg needing a larger round hole to fit into. Well, I only lay myself out on beaches … you’re not going to get all my philosophy of life in any huge treatise here. 🙂
          If I agree with something said, I don’t care who says it. Same if I don’t agree. Even idiots can come up with something useful sometimes. Quirk of nature, perhaps, but there it is.
          You can say I’m a ‘fallen athiest’ if you like. I actually don’t care what you think about me or what I say. I put something out, and it’s up to you to digest. It doesn’t require a close relationship to any particular God to have some practical thoughts on life … varied as they may seem at times. But then, life is varied too. I have made mine so. After all, lying on a beach ALL the time can be horribly boring, and is generally not good for the exercise programme. 🙂 It’s the way I am. And if I think ANY of the idiots who try to control lives all the time are getting out of hand, I’ll say so. But sometimes I just walk away … depends on the weather perhaps. 🙂
          If I do something good for the ‘fellow man’ in making a brain work, it’s better than trying to trash him all the time … although I might disturb some … and they probably need it. 🙂
          That’s why we’re all here … buddies in bad times … friends … stuff like that. A human exchange.
          Happy you think of me. 😉

    • In Islamic countries they stone homosexuals to death.

      I see no reason to interfere with the Islamic culture in that respect.

      The American president, Sodom Hussein Obama has an official policy of promoting homosexuality…

      I don’t think this is helping his foreign policy in Islamic countries.

      The president of Iran said promotion of homosexuality is a Zionist plot.

      In Pakistan, they called the promotion of homosexuality by the U.S. Embassy there an act of cultural terrorism.

        A friend of mine who is a farm engineer told me that cows are lesbians… probably because the bulls lose interest in them after mating a couple of time. That is why farmers are seen often exchanging bulls between farms. Monkeys are often seen in homosexual acts however one thing is exclusive to Humans (and it is beyond me how it can be tolerated in Islamic countries)… Pedophilia. 

        • All mammals evolve heterosexually.

          You should stop molesting your cows.

    • Jews and Christians live together without any problem at all in Israel and in most of the Western countries. There are hudreds of thousands of Christians in Israel – Many in mixed Jewish-Christian families from former USSR, and there is no difference between them and the Jews. I myself had Christian girlfriends that I love very much. Arab-Christians also look exactly like Israelis, live together, study together and some even enlist to the army or Israeli civil-voluntary service.

        Yes Omeriko … true … And did you try Bacon & Eggs cooked by the girls? It’s wonderful, like Falafels can be too. 😉
        Hmmm … although … in a world of imperfections …. I seem to remember something in news about Orthodox (what the Pope calls fundamentalist) Jews in Toronto Canada causing disturbances over wine stores and Christmas trees in other stores or places, and another story that said they can’t say ‘Merry Christmas’ any more at Christmas …. or maybe that’s because the few folks (again fundamentalists only) who wanted ‘state-within-a-state’ Sharia crap were turned down on it. But the debate over it all (and equality) got the nervous government to say they had to simply call all Holy Days ‘holidays’ … without affecting anyone’s eyesight with ‘trimmings’ in shopping stores.
        Maybe I can Wiki that one up …. 😉

          now i see what you meant by great books; your satyre had dual meanings; i thought you were talking about university books which you hate; nope, you were talking about other books which you hate too: religious books.
          Well first reiligious healing is an established facts; many hospital based studies have shown that people in intensive care being prayed for, regardless of the type of prayer, achieve in a statistically different manner much better than those not prayed for; to such an extent that one of the studies consluded that if prayer was a medication the FDA would have approved it.
          Second religious books are a source of philosophical brain food.
          Last but not least, do you know that atheists have great philosophical religious(atheist) books too?
          am always ready to show you some

        • saoudiAhbal

          even though i am not a book bound religious person, i do not believe that any book was written by God himself and i do question myself a lot of questions, but, if one is honest, by the same token you ask yourself questions that deny the existence of god, you can ask yourself questions that consolidates it; like: despite all the scientific progress we reached till now, have we found a discovery which allows us to take a pill and walk?

        • saoudiAhbal

          well yes 5th, 1984 is an important date; when israel allows joumblatt to massacre the christians of the mountains and your family perishes, in collaboration the bandit geagea, you will think thrice before saying israel is your friend, dont you?

        oh sure and in Iran they do not have this homosexual “phenomenon ‘ as their president stated..
        Read some history book and you will see that Homosexuality existed before Islam and even exists in nature/animals. Allowing humans to live as equals under the law is not a promotion of an agenda its called civil rights. 

        • Mammals only evolve heterosexually.

          All men are born of a woman.

          You have no right to tell other cultures how to live.

          Stay home in the West and make your gay porn movies, Muslims don’t want you interfering in their culture.

        • FadiAbboud

          Of course, because anyone who defends human rights is automatically labeled as gay, that shows your ignorance. In the USA people do live as they want and if they want to practice free speech, like talking ill of gays or Muslims, we can.. Unfortunately for you- your Islamic Government does not allow freedoms so you get mad at the world and it confuses your brainwashed mentality. 

      • nayyashAl3arab

        buddy, in my country saoudi arabia, homosexuality is the norm; pedophelia is also legal. Let me tell you why: because if pedophelia is punishable, then a definition imposes itself. age has to be set. 18? 16? 12 years? 8 years? aysha was 8. You understand the rest. i hope the wahhabis dont issue a fatwa on me now; walak toz

        A friend of mine who is a farm engineer told me that cows are lesbians… probably because the bulls lose interest in them after mating a couple of time. That is why farmers are seen often exchanging bulls between farms. Monkeys are often seen in homosexual acts however one thing is exclusive to Humans (and it is beyond me how it can be tolerated in Islamic countries)… Pedophilia. 

        • All mammals evolve heterosexually.

          You should stop molesting your cows.

        • Hannibal

          @Winstone_Blake:disqus It is ok do not worry… I will leave the monkeys to you… They look like your ugly avatar.
          I thought for a while that you were a product of homosexuality… But it was far-fetched… Then it dawned upon me… You were definitely raped by homosexuals… Therefore the hatred.

        • You should not have sex with monkeys either…

          I told you before, I will drive you out like T.E. Lawrence drove the Turks out.

      BREAKING NEWS: LEBANON BEAT CHINA IN BASKETBAL

  • leb111

    This is stupidity at its best.Wonder who their leader is. Once again the Christians in Lebanon suffer.Maybe its time the Christians rise up from the ashes.

    • Leborigine

      Unfortunately that will never happen leb111. We are all divided like never before. Thats why marhoom Bashir killed hundreds to unify the Xtian ranks. We are our own worst enemy my friend. We have the Marada who hate the LF who hate the Oranginas who hate the Kataeb who hate etc etc.

      • saoudiAhbal

        actually you need to be more objective: the LF are not geagea maffia; are you aware of the real lebanese forces movement lead by massoud al ashkar fouad abi nader and joe edde? these are the real lebanese forces: koudama al ouwwat and they support general aoun

  • The minorities in the middle east should be allies and help each other, in the face of this WW3 between Shiite and Sunni muslims. Jews, Druze, Christians from all sects (Maronite, Greek, Protestant, Catholic, Armenian etc.), Bahais and others should assist each other.

    Bahais, Druze and Christians enjoy very good life in Israel and have high positions in every aspect of life. Mixed Jewish-Christian couples and marriages are very common because of the huge number of Christians that immigrated to Israel from the former USSR and because a lot of Israelis studied in the USA or Europe and married Christians.

    • saoudiAhbal

      i used to believe in that; i still believe in it except that i replaced jews by shiites; we imporve in life otherwise we die. I have no problem allying myself with jews but not the radical ones which unfortunately seem to be governing israel for the time being; maybe i do not see the difference since some say shiites are a jewish offshoot

    • saoudiAhbal

      it is not because israel does not use the same barbaric means as the salafis that they are not radicals; as our jewish radical sister 5thEinstein pointed out , orthodox jews can be worse than salafis citing canada as an example she knows. i myself had many jewish girlfriends in beirut in wadi abou jmil a notorious jewish area, yet i am still a radical christian, yet i am open to shiites, yet i am open to hizbollah, yet i am open to hindous, yet i do not murder…….

      • I’m an Atheist with both Jewish and Christian background. There are many Israelis like me. 

        As for ultra-religious Jews, I don’t like that sect either. However you should not see everything in black & white, there are many colors of grey. About half of the Jewish-origin israelis are secular or atheists. The other half are traditional, religious or ultra religious. The ultra religious usually don’t mix with the rest of the Jews, they don’t eat at a secular Jewish house, they don’t marry secular Jews – BUT – they are not armed, they don’t have a military militia and they even fight the courts to be exempt from military service – exactly the opposite of Hizbullah in that sense.

        Even in the times of Jesus, there were 4 different Jewish sects : The Mityavnim (Jews that took the Hellenic culture), The Zdokim (seculars), The Issiim (somewhat socialists. It is claimed Jesus was influenced by them), and the Prushim (equivalent to nowadays ultra-orthodocs).

    Where is the anti-riot police in all of this? Do we just let these idiots go on a rampage and destroy the hard work dedication of Lebanese entrpreneurs. This goes to show the level of fanaticism occurring in the muslim faith. Are you seriously a religion of peace or violence?…..You need to isolate those that use Islam to promote hatred and violence. Don’t be hypocrites either……….these incidents further isolate the Islamic faith. Do something now before it is too late.
