As protests continue to spread following Muslim outrage at the film the Innocence of Muslims, hatred of America is on the increase. In the latest development the USA has ordered all its non essential staff to leave Tunisia and the Sudan.
US Embassies in both these countries have been attacked in recent days. The US has also advised its citizens currently in Tunisia to leave as soon as possible.
In the Sudan the US have been refused permission to bring in Marines to protect its embassy. It appears that anti US feeling is running high in Muslim countries. Peaceful protesters are being railroaded by those with an agenda of violent disorder.
Certainly some of the messages being carried by protesters are a cause for concern. Some convey a message of Sharia Law dominating the World. Most however simply want condemnation of the anti Muslim film and assurances that in future their faith will be free from foreign blasphemers.
The death toll in regions of the Middle East affected by the protests continues to rise. At least seven peple have been killed so far.
Tunisia was one of the Arab Spring countries. It was the first to experience an uprising. It remains, it seems, in a state of limbo.
