Feel sick & disgusted that someone is holding a sign that reads "behead all those that insult the prophet" . Disgraceful #USEmbassy—

At Hyde Park in Sydney, Australia, a massive crowd of Muslims heeded the Muslim Brotherhood’s call and gathered for a pretextual Jihad Friday riot. Australians on Twitter were sickened to see viral signs calling for the decapitation of all who “insult the prophet” Mohammed. Even children held up the signs. Sick.
Protestor in Sydney "Islam is about nothing but peace." I guess he didn't see the sign that said "behead all those that insult Muhammad."—

“Peaceful” chanting to go along with the “peaceful” signs:
"Behead all those who insult the Prophet" and "Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell". Yeah, Religion of peace.—

Religion of Peace … or Pieces?
Via the Sydney Morning Herald:
Police have used tear gas on Sydney protesters who swept through the CBD as world-wide demonstrations triggered by a US film portraying the prophet Muhammad as a womaniser and paedophile reached Australia.
Up to 500 protesters stormed through the city as protesters worked their way through Pitt Street before moving to Hyde Park amid a heavy police presence.
The crowd carried signs saying “Behead all those who insult the prophet”. Paramedics attended to several protesters suffering from the effects of tear gas.
Police have begun arresting people in Hyde Park amid violent confrontations with protesters.
"Behead all those who insult the prophet"

If the signs look familiar, it’s because they’re regularly recycled at Jihad Friday riots (see here from 2006- 2007 in London).
“We are here to rally in protest about what they have said about the Prophet Mohammed,’’ he said. “We say that America should not play the role of supporting this movie.
“The prophet is more beloved than my family, my wife, my mother and myself, so if someone says this, you can see how upsetting it is.”
He said he had not seen the film, but understood it mocked the prophet.
And what’s a Religion of Peace “protest” without injuries to police officers?
Update: The Russian Times has posted video and photos of police pepper-spraying protesters as well as photos of injured police officers.
