The film obviously portrays Muhammad and his dog-breath religion in a bad light. But they do that themselves everyday. I guess when we see beheadings and stonings and women mutilated in full view of the world, we're supposed to feel warm and fuzzy all over for the "Religion of Peace". Moslems complaining about this film because it "insults their prophet" is absurd. If this is the tolerant, peaceful religion they profess it to be, then they insult their prophet everyday and especially with their actions of this week.
Now, according to somewhat sketchy reports, the makers of the film "Innocence of Muslims" are ex-pat Coptic Christians living in the L.A. area. They have since gone into hiding fearing for their lives. And what about the Coptic Christians in Egypt? They have been brutalized, raped, and murdered for 1500 years with very little outcry from anybody. This was in the New Republic a few months ago.
This kind of persecution goes on all the time in Egypt and throughout the Middle-East, and nobody says a word. These guys were just trying to get a little attention paid to their people's suffering, and a little payback probably. Wouldn't you?
But we should use this as a teachable moment. We know the film is just a pretext for violence against us but we should run with it. We can shame the Egyptians and Islam for their brutality towards Christians and other minorities. We should beat them over the head with this, and it's only right. Egypt is most likely lost as any sort of ally or partner in the region so let's start demanding they act civilized if they want our money and friendship. And if it turns out Egypt is in fact lost to the nut-case Islamo-Fascists, we can thank the Democrats and Barack Obama.
