Ignorance certainly is your strong suit though and you continue to prove it with each and every post. You have no idea why the video was created and who was behind it, do you? You're completely ignorant that 9/11/12 wasn't the only day violent demonstrations over the video took place the world over aren't you? Do you know how the Coptic Christians in Egypt are linked to this controversy?
Instead of trying to uselessly slam me, why don't you do some research for yourself?
An act of provocation? The "Innocence of Muslims" Film, and Its Political Consequences
Posted on September 26, 2012
The low budget movie "Innocence of Muslims" has caused a major stir around the Islamic world. However, a very interesting story is behind the production, which has sparkled violent protests around the Islamic world. The first issue that needs to be taken into consideration is the coincidence of this movie getting worldwide recognition at the 11th anniversary of the 09/11 terrorist attacks in the USA, despite the fact that the "movie" was released in July 2012.
It can be assumed that the reasons behind Mr. Nakoula's anti-Muslim film are related to the abuse, discrimination and violence against the Christian Coptic minority in Egypt, fuelled by the country's political instability after the revolution, the concern for the future, and the wellbeing of the Egyptian Christian minority in the country. If Mr. Nakoula's film was an attempt to bring into light the Coptic rights connected to the safety of the Coptic population in Egypt, then why did he use a fake name and most importantly an American-Jewish alias?
An extreme interpretation of the film's true objective would be the director's will to involve the US and Israeli governments and their populations into a sectarian conflict with Islamic populations.... As extreme the above assumption as it may sound, the film successfully managed to provoke a violent reaction around the Muslim world. In Libya the US ambassador was killed along with four other Americans who were inside the US Consulate in Benghazi that was attacked by furious armed men who stormed inside. In Kabul, Afghanistan and Jakarta, Indonesia demonstrations in reaction to the film turned violent with protestors burning cars along with US flags. In Pakistan, protestors clashed with the police while in Lebanon, Hezbollah released an angry statement about the film calling for the punishment of the filmmakers.
Finally, the film has without any doubt caused an unbelievable reaction, although this kind of reaction was absolutely unnecessary and could have been avoided. As for the US government, it would be better not to be directly involved in controlling the clashes, but to co-operate with local governments in order to control the situation and avoid any further loses. In case the USA were directly involved the outcome would have been unbelievable; more hatred against the USA and violent reactions would have been caused. Additionally, the anti-American wave would have taken even wider dimensions that would probably even resemble the one during the invasion of Iraq. The stance that the USA have kept until now is without any doubt right. thegwpost.com
