'Thai Muslim Protesters March to US Embassy'
'Between 400 and 500 Muslims have marched to the US embassy in Bangkok to protest against (that should probably be, 'seizing as pretext for a threat display' - CM) the anti-Islamic film 'The Innocence of Muslims'.
'the protesters, many of whom were from the International Al Quds Federation of Thailand, chanted and carried signs reading "Down with America" and "We respect every religion".
Riiight. Then why do your co-religionists back-shoot Buddhist monks in southern Thailand, eh? And what about those Bamiyan Buddhas? - CM
'Speakers told the crowd the protest was about more than the film, but about tolerance.
'Tolerance'. In Islamspeak this seems to mean: Muslims can do whatever they like to non-Muslims, up to and including robbery, rape, enslavement and mass murder; non-Muslims put up with it, without resistance or complaint. - CM
'The group chanted "We hate hate" before walking on US and Israeli flags laid on the wet road.
What a way to demonstrate repudiation of hatred: by a gesture of dominance, rejection and contempt. What they seem to mean by 'hate' is 'any and all critique or rejection of Islam, Islam, Islam'. Muslims bent on Total World Domination just hate it when people say No, or when people say, 'well, actually, I don't agree with you and I don't like what you say and do'. That 'No, thanks' is the 'hate' that Muslims hate. - CM
'They also attempted to burn the flags (that is, the sopping-wet flags they had just been trampling into the puddles? - CM) but they were put out by the rain.
Methinks I see the face of a Laughing Buddha in the clouds overhead....- CM
'The embassy was closed ahead of the protest and staff were sent home early.
'Uniformed police lined up outside the front of the building while plain clothed officers were in the crowd.
'The group dispersed peacefully.
'Though the population of Thailand is 90 percent Buddhist, in the south of the country there are three Muslim majority provinces.
Where for at least ten years some among the local Muslims have been busy attacking and killing Buddhist monks, Buddhist schoolteachers, and civilians - shopkeepers, tea-house patrons, rubber plantation workers, villagers, men, women and little children, old and young, both Buddhist and deemed-insufficiently-Islamic Muslims - as well as, of course, Thai policemen and soldiers. By now they've racked up a butcher's bill of at least 4000+. - CMl
