Embassy attacks: As usual, America provoked it
When I first heard that the Embassy’s in both Libya and Egypt were attacked this week, I almost immediately had to find out why. I couldn’t help but wonder why out of the blue two embassy’s in two different country’s would be suddenly attacked, and then one of my staffers was so delighted to show me a video they were already aware would offend me.
As a Muslim myself, I’m appalled that this video even made its way onto the internet — but not as much as I should be, to say, be involved in the riots themselves. I can’t say I’m really surprised such a brainless movie was made by, wait for it, an American.
My philosophy on this entire situation is this.. if this were another country that made a hateful film about ‘God‘ or the ‘Bible‘ preferentially aimed towards America… you best believe American’s would be up in flames over the film itself.. just like Muslim’s are over the film referring to Mohammed as a ‘Pedophile, Fraud, and a Womanizer‘.
The worst part, and this still isn’t surprising, the nut-cases at Youtube who couldn’t tell the difference between offensive material and freedom of expression even if it bit them in the ass.. won’t remove the video because it ‘doesn’t violate user rights’.
