More like a convenient excuse.
Via Jakarta Globe:
More than 350 Muslim fundamentalists and their supporters staged an anti-US demonstration in Jakarta on Friday, spewing anger at America over an anti-Islam film.
Outside the US embassy in the Indonesian capital, the protesters — men and women with children in tow — carried banners that read “We condemn the insult against Allah’s messenger,” and the Koranic verse “There is no God but Allah.”
A speaker from the pro-Caliphate organisation Hizb ut-Tahrir that organized the protest, told the crowd: “This film insulted our prophet and we condemn it. The film is a declaration of war.”
The crowd shouted back: “Allahu akbar!” (God is greatest), while police clad in riot gear stood guard nearby.
Another speaker declared: “The US does not deserve to stay here,” as the crowd roared that Americans be expelled from the world’s largest Muslim nation.
