The protests reach day 3 in Cairo and the anti-American sentiment spreading with domino effect to other countries.
Israeli Arabs protest outside the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv Thursday following the attacks on U.S. compounds in Libya, Egypt and Yemen.
The Times of Israel reports about 100 peaceful demonstrators marched outside the embassy to protest the anti-Islam movie which mocks the prophet Muhammad.
A radical group called the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement led the demonstration, according to the Times of Israel.
A top Israeli Arab Knesset official warned of “Armageddon” if the United Nations does not intervene.
“If the U.N. does not mobilize to stop this erosion, it will be Armageddon,” MK Talab el-Sana told the Israeli paper.
Tuesday’s attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya that left American ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans dead seems now to have just been the beginning. The uprising has spread throughout the Middle East, with protesters now in Egypt, Iran, Tunisia, Morocco and Afghanistan. Protests were finally quelled in Yemen, where demonstrators breached the perimeter of the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa.
But the situation is most untenable in Cairo where at least 13 protesters and six police officers were injured, according to government officials.
The onslaught began three days ago when just a few men scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and tore down the American flag, replacing it with a Jihadist message.
Now days later, what started as just a few has grown to nearly 500 protesters in the streets of Egypt’s capital just outside the U.S. Embassy ( via washington.cbslocal.com ).
