ASSociated Press: Denmark Reopens Embassy in Indonesia

Tens of thousands of people massed in Pakistan and Turkey on Sunday to protest cartoons of Islam’s Prophet, Muhammad, that have fired anger throughout the Muslim world. Denmark reopened its embassy in Indonesia on Monday, more than three weeks after hard-line Muslims stormed the building and it closed amid widespread protests over the caricatures, which were first published in a Danish newspaper.

About 50,000 people, many chanting “Hang those who insulted the prophet,” rallied Sunday in the southern Pakistani city of Karachi. The protesters burned the Danish flag, hit an effigy of President Bush with a stick and chanted “Death to America” and “Death to Musharraf.” Pakistani President Gen. Pervez Musharraf welcomed Bush to Pakistan on Saturday.

Hundreds of policemen in riot gear lined the central Karachi road where the rally was held. There was no violence.

Women supporters of Islamic coalition Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum take part in a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Sunday, March 5, 2006 in Karachi, Pakistan. About 50,000 people, many chanting ‘Hang those who insulted the prophet,’ rallied in a southern Pakistani city to protest Prophet Muhammad cartoons. The headbands read: ‘God is great.’

Ahhhhh the Taliban and Al Qaeda apologists/supporters are up to turning out the crowds again. But, the Pakistani government has threatened a crack down so there is NO violence.

The Mullahs must stir up the masses to keep them in line. Can the Pakistanis and Turks not see that the Islamic Clerics are trying to “CONTROL” them?

Pakistan’s opposition leader and anti-U.S. cleric Maulana Fazlur Rahman addresses his supporters at a rally to condemn the publication of cartoons depicting Islamic Prophet Muhammad printed by some Western newspapers, Sunday, March 5, 2006 in Karachi, Pakistan.

In Pakistan, the protest was organized by a coalition of radical Islamic groups opposed to Musharraf and the United States. The alliance, Mutahida Majlis-e-Amal, or United Action Forum, has organized a series of demonstrations against the cartoons, which were reprinted in several other European countries.

Some cartoon protests in Pakistan have turned deadly and at least five people died in two Pakistani cities in rioting last month.

Radical Islamists in Pakistan oppose Musharraf for his cooperation with the United States in the war on terrorism.

“Both Musharraf and his master Bush are killers of Muslims,” said Maulana Fazlur Rahman, parliamentary opposition leader and a senior figure in the religious alliance.

So, the protests ARE political not religious. The protests over the Muhammad Caricatures are a SHAM.

DUH…….

Stay tuned…….
