Developing: Islamist mobs storm British and German embassies in Sudan; German embassy on fire; Update: Fire at US embassies in Khartoum and Tunis; Update: Mob, flag burning outside US embassy in London

Islamist mobs in Sudan have joined the violent attacks on Western embassies.

Reuters reports the thugs have attacked the British and German embassies in Khartoum, setting the German embassy ablaze and raising an Islamic flag. Are we to believe these attacks are also about a film?

Mobs are reportedly heading toward the U.S. embassy outside the city.

An unverified account for the U.S. embassy in Khartoum reports that staffers were evacuated.

Reuters reports that German embassy employees are also safe, according to German Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle.

There may be “tens of thousands” of people attempting to breach and destroy the embassies.

Meanwhile, violence rages on in Cairo.

And one person is dead in Lebanon.

But it’s a filmmaker who should be charged with murder.

KFC? This is about a movie and they set KFC on fire?

The mob has reached the U.S. Embassy outside of Khartoum.

The trees outside the American embassy are now on fire as well as the violence continues to spread:

And there is a large fire inside the U.S. embassy compound in Tunis.

Twitchy will monitor the situation and update with developments.


And a mob outside the embassy in London now.

    at what point do those in this world who believe in civilized behavior and civil discourse and the free expression of ideas simply wash our hands of those animals in the muslim world, withdrawing not just human resources, but the availability of our business expertise, our educational institutions, our vast wealth of opportunity, AND OUR FREAKING MONEY!

  • TugboatPhil

    Could we drop the term “protesters” now? It’s getting as ridiculous as the destruction in France a few years back by the “disaffected youths”, that just coincidentally were all young, Arab, Muslim, males.

    • cloaked in mystery

      Indeed, these are rioters/looters

      • WingedBishop

        They are terrorists.

    The truly depressing thing is that the UK and German governments, just like the US, is more likely to issue apologies and curtail free speech than they are to denounce the thugs attacking embassies and consulates.

      Foreign Minister Guido Westerwelle said Friday afternoon that of the staff of the German Embassy are in safety. “The German embassy in Khartoum is on target of attacks by violent demonstrators,” said Westerwelle. He condemned the storm “in the strongest terms,” said the minister.

      Westerwelle: “Film is no justification for violence”

      He understands the “anger in the Islamic world over the anti-Muslim hate-video,” said Westerwelle. The film was “intolerable and hurt the feelings of millions of people.” The video did not contain any defamatory “justification for violence, for the storming of embassies and for the killing of people.”

      According to Westerwelle has summoned the Sudanese ambassador in Berlin on Friday morning and pointed out the duty of his government to protect diplomatic facilities.

        Sounds like an apology to me…..
        Everyone knows this has nothing to do with a movie…..

        • ked5

          everyone with two-brain cells to rub together knows it’s not about a movie. look at all the hollywood leftists and whackjob polititians who take an opportunity for a photo op and are blaming the movie’s producer with some calling for him to be tried for murder.

  • John Hanover

    The ” IslamoFascists ” strike again. Even if you kiss their asses they still kill you. The leaders of this terrorism are hypocritical in how they advance their lives and influence and keep their own people in the darkness, using religion to control and create a more hostile world.

    • Richard Jefferies

      They’ll kill you because you kiss their ass. They are like the Romulans in the original Star Trek series. Even back then, Roddenberry understood that some cultures you cannot show weakness too. Too bad our prez probably never watched any episodes.

      • Maria

        It was the same in “Star Trek: The Next Generation”. Romulans were jerks.

  • Cruz2016!!!

    What more does it have to take to see that these people are totally wacko! They are the destroyers of the earth and you still want to pacify their behavior and apologize for videos? Wake up morons!! Obama has failed miserably again! He is a child in the school yard, Romney is the leader we need!

  • Robert Rouse

    So, what offensive film did the Brits and Germans make? What kind of scapegoat will they find for these attacks?

    • ked5

      well – as one above picture shows – the brits and germans were crusaders a few hundred years ago. sept 11 is also the anniversary of turning back the muslim invaders at the gates of vienna in 1683

  • Richard Jefferies

    There is no western nation whose leadership is more Dhimmi than the Brits, and their embassy is being attacked. So much for that false narrative, eh US media.

    • garethmiller

      Your ‘Dhimmi’ jibe is not only incorrect, it is also offensive.

      • Kevin Krom

        If you’re that offended, go attack an embassy.

        • garethmiller

          Mature response

          • PennyRobinsonFanClub

            Same to you, twatface.

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Tough sh1t and fu(k you.

      • TugboatPhil

        Would you prefer spineless appeasers instead of Dhimmi?

      • Maria

        And your Lefty’s calling us all teabaggers is not offensive? Hmm.

    • Burt Zerker

      So true – it offends

  • mindRider

    What the heck did the Germans do wrong? The British can of course stil be held to blame for their empire. When is the western world going to stop cooing to Islam and it’s violent illiterate adherents.

    • Burt Zerker

      What did they do?,.same thing we did, gave them aid, helped to rid them of tyrants and terrorists,..apparently that is inexcusable in Islam. These days,.. any nation that has indoor plumbing is a target.

      They should get on their knees and thank the Brits every day for that ’empire’. It was ’empire’ that ended up doubling their life spans and improving their standard of living ten fold. .

      • mindRider

        It was meant ironic 😉

        • Burt Zerker

          mindrider: Yeah, I know, no prob…just wanted to get my 2 cents in.

    • garethmiller

      They are angry about the new German law banning circumcision. The UK embassy just happens to be next door and it has got conflated.

      Nothing to do with ’empire’.

      • PennyRobinsonFanClub

        Funny, I don;t see thousands of Jews rioting anywhere. Do you? Can you tell me if any embassies in Israel are burning? Are there mobs of Hasidics throwing Molotov cocktails at Peter Luegers? Are they cancelling Oktoberfest in Milwaukee for fear of the JDL?

        Get the camel di(k out of your throat, Failboy, you’re cutting off the O2 that used to make your brain work.

      • Maria

        Why would they care? They never go to Germany anyways. They are just looking for any excuse. Face it. Apologists like you make me sick.
        The only reason the German and UK Embassies were attacked was because they are allies of the U.S. That is the ONLY reason.

    This all has nothing to do with a film. Last time it was a cartoon. The time before it was a teddybear named Mohammad. Before that, all you had to be was an Israeli Olympic athelete. These are all pathetic, limp-wristed pretenses to allow bigoted, violent, hate-filled neandrethals an excuse to kill and destroy. They always claim they have no ability to restrain themselves from their base animal instincts against woman, Jews, Christians, homosexuals, Infidels, etc. so their handy catch-all solution is to kill all of the above groups. Did it ever occur to them that what _they_ say and do to these groups is offensive to us, the civilised world? If they really want to kill someone for a movie, how about Warren Beatty and Dustin Hoffman for the film “Ishtar”. Now _that_ … was offensive. (for those hate-filled muslims out there that last line is known as “humor” out here in the developed world. Look it up on your American invented smartphone)

    • garethmiller

      Wait, Johnny Ive is American now? 😉

      • J. Cox

        Can you be more obtuse?Would you like to make a few excuses for them..hold their hands?

  • NWFL Conservative

    Hey Barry, how’s that Arab Spring thing working out for us now you pathetic excuse for a “president”?

    Welcome ladies and gents to the prelude to WWIII, a movie had absolutely nothing to do with any of this.

  • colliemum

    Amazing, isn’t it, how this pitiful little film has been suddenly watched by so many millions, in countries not known for their internet infrastructure …

  • gekkobear

    What? Why?

    This is all about a youtube video made by a guy in California.. Carney the White House Spokesman SAID SO.

    Why would Britain or Germany be targeted? It’s almost like the White House is lying to us or something. Weird…

  • J.N. Ashby

    Idea: Embargos and Cutoff Immigration from said embargoed countries. You wanna play hardball? Let’s play hardball.

  • Maria

    We should pull all our personnel from all the overseas Middle Eastern and African Embassies and Consulates NOW. And we should give no more financial aid to those countries either. Barry’s hugest mistake in a presidency full of mistakes was to continue giving aid to Egypt after the Muslim Brotherhood took over. Then again they were probably his friends at the time. Now Egypt is a frenemy, according to Barry. Romney wouldn’t make that mistake, I can assure you.

  • TheDoctor

    Yet we continue to give millions to these countries.
