Demonstrations continue in front of the US Embassy in Cairo, with clashes breaking out between police and protesters including a constant volley of smoking tear gas canisters. Bahraini religious figures protest as well, though keeping their demonstration non-violent. About a hundred Tunisians protested on Wednesday, September 12, in front of the US Embassy, shouting anti-American slogans and burning American flags.

Hundreds of demonstrators gathered in Cairo Tuesday, September 11, 2012, shouting anti-American and anti-Israeli slogans along with "there is no God but Allah," and scaling the US Embassy's walls to pull down the American flag. The protests come in response to an inflammatory trailer to a film called "The Innocence of Islam," posted on youtube, which reportedly depicts the prophet Mohammed as a homosexual pedophile. While people's anger in Egypt propelled them to protest at the US embassy in Cairo, in Libya, enraged mobs attacked the US consulate in Benghazi. The US Ambassador to Libya and three staff members were killed during the attack. In this exclusive video, interviews with local Egyptians and protesters illustrate their religious sentiment, for a full transcription click here.

8:15: "I am Sabir Shartout from Giza, and when I heard about the protest I was one of the first people to confirm my attendance-- it's the least one can do. It is a protest to express the people's anger. This situation is in need of investigation. To those who insulted the prophet: he is the greatest symbol of Islam and he is the root of existence for all Muslims, for all Muslims are alive to love their God and their Prophet. It is really hard and painful for our people and people like us to have to go through those situations. Do we, as people, really deserve this insult? As Muslim, do we really deserve this humiliation? Someone has insulted a symbol, a great symbol that gives meaning to my whole life, and that is the Prophet Mohamed (PBUH). Why are they doing this?"

After the Tunisian Minister of Education Abdul Latif Obaid deducted 100 dinars (63$) from the wages of junior high school teachers who protested in May, the General Union of Tunisian Workers organized a demonstration with many of the teachers and trade unionists from different parts of the Republic.

Libya's Rebirth 9

Libyans celebrate after voting in Martyr's Square. This was formerly called Green Square, where Gaddafi would make yearly speaches.

After 42 years of Moammar Gadhafi's reign, Libyans are participating in the first democratic election since 1969. Calls for boycott and election violence threatens the momentous day as campaigning drew to a close the day before the July 7th election.

Des Libyens célèbrent sur la Place des Martyrs après avoir voté. La Place des Martyrs est un des symboles du règne de Mouammar Kadhafi. C’est sur cette place qu'avaient lieu, le 1er septembre de chaque année, le défilé militaire commémorant la Révolution du Fateh, qui porta l'ancien "Guide de la révolution" au pouvoir en 1969. Celui-ci avait également l'habitude d'y tenir ses discours politiques.

Le 7 juillet dernier, malgré les appels aux boycotts et les tensions dans le pays, les Libyens ont participé aux premières élections démocratiques du pays depuis 1969.

Itimar- Israeli Settlers march to Nablus

Settlers of Itimar protest against Palestinian statehood

Background: On March 11th 2011 two young Palestinians snuck into the Israeli settlement of Itimar (in the West Bank) near Nablus and massacred a Jewish Israeli family as they slept; this atrocious act initiated a ripple of settler violence that rapidly spread across the West Bank. Now months later, and in light of Palestine’s UN statehood bid – which will take place later this week –, the settlers of Itimar have decided to make a statement of their own.

On September 20, 2011 the residents of Itimar gathered at the Fogel residence (family who was murdered) and after a speach by the mayor, began marching toward Nablus. The heavily armed group of settlers marched enthusiastically through the settlement, out of the iron security gate, and down the long monotonous road toward Nablus. IDF forces stopped the demonstrators before they were able to enter Nablus.

20 Feb 2012

2011 meant big changes for Libya. After forty years in power, former dictator Muammar Gaddafi was ousted from power. But it took an ugly war, and Libyans are now facing the challenge of rebuilding and unifying their country. Among those suffering the consequences are the population of Tawergha, a coastal city of 30,000 inhabitants. During the war, many Tawerghans fought alongside Gaddafi’s forces. Many men were part of laying siege on the neighbouring Misrata, a city that suffered heavily during the months of fighting. When the war was nearing its end, Tawergha was captured by rebel groups from Misrata, who expelled the population and destroyed the houses. The inhabitants were forced to flee; today, many men are imprisoned while women, children and others are dispersed in refugee camps across the country. What will happen to them? The Tawerghans want to return to their homes, but the rebels guarding the city say that they can never come back.
