Australia: Islamic Protest Sparks Violence In Central Sydney, ‘Behead All Those Who Insult The Prophet’


Luke 17:1-2, "Jesus said to his disciples: 'Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.'"

Luke 17:1-2, “Jesus said to his disciples: ‘Things that cause people to sin are bound to come, but woe to that person through whom they come. It would be better for him to be thrown into the sea with a millstone tied around his neck than for him to cause one of these little ones to sin.'”

AFP – “EIGHT people are expected to be charged after violent clashes between hundreds of police and protesters erupted in Sydney’s CBD.

Six police were injured and 17 others were treated for the effects of capsicum spray today when a demonstration against an anti-Islamic film got out of hand.

Eight of the protesters were expected to be charged with a range of offences, including affray, assaulting police, resisting arrest and throwing a missile.

Police said they would also begin poring through ‘a significant amount of evidence’ that had been gathered through the media and officers, and that anyone caught committing offences would be ‘vigorously pursued’.

Saturday’s angry scenes began after about 1pm (AEST), when an ‘unannounced and unapproved’ group of people gathered at Town Hall as part of a global protest against an anti-Islamic film.

Police said the group began walking along George Street towards Martin Place, where they attempted to enter the US consulate, which is located in the MLC Centre.

It was here, according to police, that violence between officers and the growing group first broke out.

Tempers flared again when the demonstrators – then about 300-strong – took their rallying cry to Hyde Park.

Capsicum spray was fired, leaving faces red and inflamed, while one man was seen being dragged along the ground with blood dripping down his face.

Superintendent Mark Walton later said he believed some people went to the protest ‘armed’, with a view to cause damage and assault police.

‘The group was unorganised and clearly split into factions, being some there to express their concerns from their community perspective,’ he said.

‘However, there were other elements … who were clearly here with another intent.'” Read more.

    The police did an excellent job. Aren’t these people perceptive enough to realise it was an American who made the film and not the American people and government? Any excuse for a violent protest! And that sign held up by a mere child – what the hell are they teaching their children? I used to think a lot of Aussie Muslims were beyond this – but now I wonder who exactly to trust.
