Some Protesters in Middle East Regret Anti-U.S. Outbreaks | The New York Times

CAIRO — Ahmad Aggour is a 24-year-old Egyptian activist who was shot in the face by the police during clashes last November on Mohammed Mahmoud Street in Cairo and again in his legs in February at protests that followed soccer riots in Port Said. In short, he has no qualms about protesting.
Yet Mr. Aggour said he was embarrassed when a mob of angry protesters breached the United States Embassy’s walls in Cairo on Sept. 11 to protest a short trailer for an amateur film mocking the Prophet Muhammad.
