“How come the Syrian embasses haven’t been stormed!” Answer: They have been.

“How come the Syrian embasses haven’t been stormed!” Answer: They have been.

Many Muslims (including myself) complain and talk about how Muslims are protesting, getting angry, burning flags and storming embassies around the world because of a stupid video on the web while they do not about what is happening in Syria. ¬†They usually say how come Syrian embassies aren’t stormed or attacked.

The fact of the matter is the Syrian embassies around the world have been attacked:

London, Australia, Cairo and other places:

Protesters attacked seven Syrian embassies around the world following reports of the bloodiest episode yet in Damascus’ nearly yearlong crackdown on dissent. Mobs trashed diplomats’ offices from London to Australia and set the embassy in Cairo on fire. (source)
