The Yemen-based branch of al-Qaeda urged Muslims to step up protests and kill more US diplomats in Muslim countries in retribution over “Muslim Innocence,” a US-produced film mocking the Prophet Mohammad. Al-Qaeda described the film as “another chapter in the crusader wars” against Islam.
“Whoever comes across America’s ambassadors or emissaries should follow the example of Omar al-Mukhtar’s descendants, who killed the American ambassador,” the group said, referring to Tuesday’s attack on the US consulate in Benghazi, Libya, which claimed the lives of US Ambassador Christopher Stevensand three other members of the US mission.
“Let the step of kicking out the embassies be a step towards liberating Muslim countries from the American hegemony,” a statement posted on the group’s website on Saturday said.
“The incident is so huge that the resources of the nation should be pooled together to kick out the embassies of America from Muslim lands,” it said.
