I have been struggling with myself for a long time whether I shall post the unspeakable, disgusting, inflammatory hate video which has lead to the riots in the Middle East and North Africa.
I have already pointed out the irony I see in attacks against embassies and murder being used as ways to express protest against the allegation of belonging to an uncivilized and violent religion. I have also proven on other occasions that I value freedom of speech even if it that speech consists of extremely bad taste. On the other hand, not everything which is allowed to be shown has to be shown, especially not by me.
But meanwhile, especially after noticing that most of the protesters on the “Arab street” have not even seen the film “Innocence of Muslims”, I think it has become necessary to watch at least the following trailer of it in order to be able to participate in the discussion. Here you go:
Hm. Not even that bad, this film.

Do you get “The Daily Show” with Jon Stewart in your parts? He set up a clip with Terry Jones, convenient in that the nutcase American Quran-burning preacher is also named Terry Jones. And as he points out, that movie has been around for decades with nary an Embassy burned anywhere…..
I think “The Daily Show” is no longer on CNN International, so I would need to find it somewhere online. But I do often find clips of it on YouTube.
I hadn’t thought of or spotted the Terry Jones coincidence, but that’s an added bonus.
I find fundamentalism at all levels offensive. Religion has always been used to manipulate the masses to commit or condone acts that escape logic and/or morals.
Do onto others as you would have done onto thyself. You don’t need a religion to follow ethics, just common sense and the balls to prevent others from inflicting themselves onto others.
