About 10,000 Bangladeshis
took to the streets of Dhaka on Friday to demonstrate against an
anti-Islam film made in the US and cartoons in a French satirical
magazine caricaturing the Prophet Mohammed. The protesters, many
carrying banners from half a dozen Islamist groups, burnt an effigy of
Barack Obama outside the national Baitul Mokarram Mosque, the country’s
largest, after Friday prayers. They also set fire to a French flag as
they carried placards and banners reading “Obama, you are a cheater”,
“Protest the disgrace of Prophet Muhammed!”
Seems the Rose is off the Obama Muslim Bloom.
Obama and his administration promoting what had been an unknown film to use as cover for their failed Middle East Policy (what little there is of it, if any) has literally backfired.
