US Embassy in Cairo Stormed by Protesters Upset by a Movie, Embassy then Denounced the Movie Producers and Not the Violent Mob

Seriously, I think we have lost sight of American values.  The US Embassy in Cairo has been stormed by protesters who tore down the US flag and the embassy releases this in response:

The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions. Today, the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks on the United States, Americans are honoring our patriots and those who serve our nation as the fitting response to the enemies of democracy. Respect for religious beliefs is a cornerstone of American democracy. We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.

Apparently the movie in question is being produced by US based Egyptian Coptic Christians and is a Dutch production.  I haven't found many details of the movie but apparently it shows Muhammad in a bad light.  Yup, the guy who had sex with a 9 year old and murdered thousands is somehow put in a bad light, shocking I know.

In other scary Egypt news, Morsi is a 9/11 truther and will likely use funds freed by a US bailout to purchase attack submarines to challenge the Israelis.  I miss Mubarak.


  1. Thanks for your blog. I was looking to read about his story and your's was that first that came up. As I was reading I thought umm thanks for relating the story in an unbias way and then you say, "Yup, the guy who had sex with a 9 year old and murdered thousands is somehow put in a bad light, shocking I know."
    As a Muslimah, although you have every right to say what you did; you are entitled to voice your opinion. Allow me to clear up this ignorant thought. First of all you have no right to judge when you nothing about the religion. In the 1800's up to the 19th C many US states had an age of 9 if not less for sexual consent and it wasn't till the last 100 years that it was changes and up to now one state still exits that an age of 10 for sexual consent. Also what you are going is called, ethnocentrism. The marriage of Muhammad (peace be upon him) to his 9yr old wife was something that was not taboo in his time, going back 1400 years, as I am sure it was for many other older regions of that time. Whatever the case, we should all try our best not to judge our current modern culture to what was ok in the past. The girl's father gave her in marriage with open arms and happiness, everyone was ok with. Anyway!....We have to look at things in context and not soley judge wihtout having full knowledge. As for the mudering of thousands, to simply put it..he and his followers were threatened and left their homes out of fear for there own lives. Muhammed never initiated the wars, it was in fact the Quraish tribe in Makkah who wanted to kill him and when we defending him and his religion the first time and won over them and they come back again for revenge and the wars started from there. You might want to read some books, many written by non-muslims who view him in great light and give his history in an unbias accuracy. Please don't take what said in offence. I just want to defend and clear whatever misconception you have about him. Here watch his if you care to, it's pretty great and many professors of US and UK comment o the historical events. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yX3UHNhQ1Zk

    1. My understanding is that Mohamed had two era's which are very different to eacch other. In the Mecca years when he was seeking cconverts he was inclusive and reasonable. In his Medina years, that is when he got bloodthirsty as some of the more violent verses of the koran can attest.

      And while I do make comments about mohamed, my real problem is with the actions of modern islamists who commit atrocities like 9/11, suicide bombings, honor killings and murder of apostates
