Special Report: Jihadists riot in Australia

The spread of hate from Islam continues.  The pretext of the film that "insults" Muslims as the reason for the anger continues to be used, despite the fact that the attacks had been planned since August 30.  Claims that the insults are because the film shows Muhammad as a womanizer and pedophile carry no weight, as Islamic jurists and Al-Azhar University in Cairo uphold the doctrine that Muhammad did marry Aisha at 6 and consummated when she was 9.  Muhammad had 13 wives and over 50 children plus he took women that had been captured as slaves, even marrying one, a Jewess.  Nothing in the film, from what I have been able to watch is incorrect from an Islamic theological or historical perspective.  Interesting how Muslims attack when a non-Muslim tells the truth about Islam, but never anger towards the imam who says the same thing.

Eight people were arrested and six officers were injured after a protest swept through the Sydney CBD this afternoon.

Police said that, about 1pm today, a group marched from Sydney Town Hall to Martin Place, where a confrontation occurred between protesters and police outside a building housing the US consulate.

The protests were triggered by a US film, Innocence of Muslims, portraying the prophet Muhammad as a womaniser and paedophile.

Police said two of the injured officers are now in hospital. Two vehicles were also damaged.

The crowd carried signs such as "Behead all those who insult the prophet" and "Our dead are in paradise, your dead are in hell".

Police used capsicum spray on the protesters, who at times pelted officers with bottles. Up to 500 people stormed through the city, working their way through Pitt Street before moving to Hyde Park amid a heavy police presence.

The protesters were pushed back as police dogs were deployed and capsicum spray was used.

Police made several arrests in Hyde Park amid violent confrontations with demonstrators.

Protesters refused to leave Hyde Park until police released those arrested.

The riot squad and mounted police then pushed the demonstrators out of Hyde Park. The crowds moved down College Street near the Australian Museum, sparking running battles with the police, then ran down William Street.

Paramedics attended to several protesters suffering from the effects of the capsicum spray.

Fairfax Media saw a number of arrests and seriously injured protesters. One protester being taken away by ambulance spat at officers and chanted "Allahu Akbar".

More than 10 ambulance crews were at Hyde Park.

Speakers addressing the angry crowd called for calm.

"We are going to pray," a speaker said. "The other important thing is our brothers want our arrested brothers out. There is not going to be any more violence.

"Our anger and emotion is purely for Allah and his message," he said.

Abdullah Sary, a speaker at the protest, said the protesters came in peace and were disappointed police used tear gas and the dog squad.

"The anger comes from the fact if you attack the prophet you are attacking our way of life," he told Fairfax Media.

"This was a non-violent protest but people don't like seeing their brothers attacks by dogs and ending up in hospital."

A speaker said to the protesters: "The person who made this video must be held responsible." He received a loud cheer amid chants of "Allahu Akbar".

Late in the afternoon a lone man from outside the group shouted: "Shame on you for promoting murder in the name of religion."

The crowd swarmed at him attacking him and sparking a second wave of violent clashes with police.

Police rushed to the man's aide and dragged him out of the park under a rain of waterbottles, sticks and abuse.

Founder of the Islamic Friendship Association of Australia, Keysar Trad, condemned the violent protests, describing the marchers as a noisy minority.

"To be honest I am dumbfounded as to why people would deal with this issue in this particular way..."

Keysar, a little advice for you; you may be misunderstanding your own religion, please read the Qur'an again.  That should help the clarity issue.
