Dateline – Armpit Of The World: Afghanistan anti-Charlie Hebdo protest draws 20,000

At least 20,000 people protested in the western Afghan city of Herat on Friday against French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo for publishing a cartoon of the Prophet Mohammed.

The demonstrators burned French flags, chanted death slogans against France and demanded Paris apologise to Muslims in Afghanistan’s biggest rally yet against the weekly.

A smaller protest was held in the capital Kabul, where a few demonstrators threw stones at the French embassy, prompting guards to fire one or two warning shots.

“No Muslim can tolerate insults to our beloved prophet Mohammed, we demand the French government apologise to all Muslims and punish those who have insulted Islam,” said one protester in Herat.

  • Islam, the brainwashed cult of death.

    • These are stage managed for a reason. Muslims want to keep this going. Likely in the hope it inspires more attacks on western targets.

        If it does cause more attacks they can then use those attacks to claim they wouldn’t happen if we gave up the freedom of speech.

    Damn you Sylvester Stallone for your appearance and making of the film Rambo III with your sympathetic role of Afghanistan’s mujahideen. They will never be the “good guys” as long as they are under the control and influence of Islam. Believe it or not there was a time where Islam was not a major factor in people’s lives in certain regions (mostly Kabul) of that country!

    I demand no more monetary or military support for Islamic countries. I also demand no more immigrants from Islamic countries. I guess i wont be voting the next time around….

      Vote for the party that refuses Islamic immigration. Doesn’t look good now, but email all of them anyway. I do, makes me feel better. Wear the bastards down. Just consider if you don’t vote, who will take your vote from you? Come on, all is not lost. Winston Churchill did say NEVER, never, ever give up. I won’t and neither should any of us!
