-Islamists Kill US Ambassador in Libya and Embassy Attacked in Egypt Over a Movie?

by Dr. D ~ September 12th, 2012


The stories sound strange and make very little sense to those of us in Western countries but the damage and the deaths are real. According to reports US embassies were under attack yesterday on the 9/11 anniversary in Libya and Egypt over some movie which no one can name that supposedly insults Muhammad.

Mobs apparently attacked the US Consulate in Benghazi, Libya and the Us ambassador Christopher Stevens, and three staff were killed while they tried to escape. Meanwhile in Cairo, Egypt over 3,000 Muslims attacked the US embassy on 9/11 and hauled down the American flag and put up the black flag that represents al Qaeda shouting:

“There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his prophet.”

Response: This really does demonstrate the gulf and the continuing disconnect between Western cultures and the Muslim Middle East. The unsubstantiated rumors of an unnamed movie caused all of this? It does seem rather surreal.

Both events initiated by angry Muslims who are mad at the US over movie clips circulating on YouTube that are extremely offensive to Muslims since they depict and insult the Muslim prophet Muhammad. None of the initial Western news reports were able to clearly identify the offending movie clips or the source. The Muslims are responding to rumors that the clips are of a movie to be released soon in the USA and yet no one can really identify the title of this supposed movie.

Some news stories try to blame Florida pastor Terry Jones, who burned Quran several year ago, along with several Coptic Christians for the movie yet there is no real hard evidence to back the claim.

Here is the best and most probable reference that I have found concerning the rumored movie. It identifies the offending clips as coming from an Israeli film maker based in California. The film is called:  "Innocence of Muslims"

According to this article:

The film claims Muhammad was a fraud. The14-minute trailer of the movie that reportedly set off the protests, posted on the website YouTube in an original English version and another dubbed into Egyptian Arabic, shows an amateur cast performing a wooden dialogue of insults disguised as revelations about Muhammad, whose obedient followers are presented as a cadre of goons.

It depicts Muhammad as a feckless philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse, among other overtly insulting claims that have caused outrage.

Meanwhile, yesterday President Obama apologized to the Muslims for the offense and seemingly questioned whether folks should have the right to defame another’s faith while GOP candidate Gov. Romney criticized Obama for his weak response.            *Top
