US EMBASSY IN PAKISTAN UNDER SIEGE
There is somewhere around 1.5 billion Muslims in the world. What percentage are radicalized? What percentage will never blow themselves or someone else up, but will dole out money to others who will gladly hear the call of Allah to kill the infidels? What happens if Iran goes nuclear, will they hesitate to sell a dirty bomb to some of these radicals? The world is a dangerous place, and Islam is at the head of the class. The current U.S. policy to appease murderous radicals is a policy of national suicide. You want war, just appease. You want radical Jihad inside of the U.S. just appease. (Stealth Jihad is already inside the U.S. and our government, winning friend and influencing others, as are radical Islamic sleeper cells and Jihad training facilities) I hope you are sleeping well in your slumber America, because you will be awoken one day, it will be the harshest awakening you can imagine. - W.E.

Protestors descend on U.S. offices in Pakistan, Indonesia as anger over anti-Islam film persists(AP) ISLAMABAD — Several hundred lawyers protesting an anti-Islam video forced their way into an area in Pakistan's capital that houses the U.S. Embassy and other foreign missions on Wednesday, and the United States temporarily closed its consulate in an Indonesian city because of similar demonstrations.
The lawyers who protested in Islamabad shouted anti-U.S. slogans and burned an American flag after they pushed through a gate, gaining access to the diplomatic enclave before police stopped them. They called for the U.S. ambassador to be expelled from the country, and then peacefully dispersed.
The demonstration followed three days of violent protests against the film in Pakistan in which two people were killed. At least 28 other people have died in violence linked to the film in seven countries, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans killed in a Sept. 11 attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
Much of the anger over the film, which denigrates Islam's Prophet Muhammad, has been directed at the U.S. government even though the film was privately produced in the United States and American officials have criticized it.
The U.S. Embassy in Indonesia sent a text message to U.S. citizens saying that the consulate in Medan, the country's third-largest city, has been closed temporarily because of demonstrations over the film, "Innocence of Muslims."
About 300 members of Hizbut Tahrir Indonesia, a pan-Islamic movement, rallied peacefully on Wednesday in front of the consulate in Medan, the capital of North Sumatra province. Later, about 50 Muslim students also protested there. Both groups called on Washington to punish the makers of the film.
It was the third consecutive day of protests in Medan. On Monday, protesters hurled rocks and Molotov cocktails outside the embassy in Jakarta, the capital.
In France, the government has barred a planned protest by people angry over the anti-Islam film, but defended a newspaper's right to publish caricatures of the prophet.
France's foreign minister said security is being stepped up at some French embassies amid tensions in France and elsewhere around the film. French authorities and Muslim leaders urged calm in the country, which has the largest Muslim population in western Europe.
Riot police took up positions outside the Paris offices of a satirical French weekly that published crude caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad on Wednesday that ridicule the film and the furor surrounding it. The provocative weekly, Charlie Hebdo, was firebombed last year after it released a special edition that portrayed the Prophet Muhammad as a "guest editor" and took aim at radical Islam.
The investigation into that attack is still under way.
Prime Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault of France said organizers of a planned demonstration Saturday against the film won't receive police authorization. Ayrault told French radio RTL that "there's no reason for us to let a conflict that doesn't concern France come into our country. We are a republic that has no intention of being intimidated by anyone."
On Tuesday, Islamic militants sought to capitalize on anger over the film, saying a suicide bombing that killed 12 people in Afghanistan was revenge for the video and calling for attacks on U.S. diplomats and facilities in North Africa.

The US embassy in the Pakistani capital has become the latest target of protesters angry at an anti-Islam video that triggered protests in the Arab and Muslim world.
Hundreds of students from various colleges and educational institutions in Islamabad clashed with police on Thursday as they were being blocked from reaching the embassy.
Students pelted the police with stones, and the police retaliated by firing tear gas shells.
Several students were injured when policemen hurled the stones back at the crowd.
According to local television channels, several policemen were injured.
"Our policemen are not any better than the Americans because they are trying to stop us. They are in the same league as them, they are heretics like them," said student Jawad Ahmed.
"They should allow us to demolish the American embassy because they have blasphemed against our holy Prophet. The police are also becoming an accomplice of blasphemers."
There were also protests in other parts of Pakistan as well.
In Lahore, the cultural capital of the country, students from an Islamic school marched through the streets and chanted anti-American slogans.
In Muzaffarabad, the capital of Pakistani Kashmir, over two hundred protesters set fire to an effigy of U.S President Barack Obama.
