A California video of lewd sex by Mohammed was promoted as by FL Rev of Koran burner infamy was posted on You Tube and was viewed 6000 times before Someone dubbed it into Arabic, which sparked a riot which was repelled with live ammo causing a Right wing islamic group to storm the Begazi Embassy in Libya resulting in the death of the US ambassador and possibly his staff. Riots are also in Cairo for the same video.

A State Dept resopnse was developed to tone down the violence but events moved too quickly and are now blamed as a WH apology by Mitt Romney.


The formula of hate+ignorance over religion = death
The equation of hate moves faster than truth again.

The Arab Winter vs The Arab Spring?

As the US ambassador and staff tried to flee, an RPG was fired into his car. He was a very young man who was proud that the US had intervened just enough to save Bengazi from the genocide promised by Ghadafi.

This is a tragedy in 4 acts in which FOX is already portraying Obama as apologizing to Islamic religious defenders with the comment regarding a religious free speech statement that was not approved.

All the US right wing Lonesome Roads talking heads will blame Obama for all the Jack Asses in this tragedy of terrors.

It's just the kind of inflammatory film that will undermine our international efforts to reach out to Moslems the world over. Oh and, yes, the people who led the mobs against our embassies should also be brought to justice.

Under the Constitution, the jackasses who made the film in question cannot be arrested for making it, but a case could made - conceivably - that they are guilty of incitement to riot and the reckless endangerment (and possibly worse) of American citizens.

But I'm no lawyer, and maybe nothing can be done.

In that case, some new laws are needed. Freedom of speech under the Constitution has never been absolute, and from what I gather from CNN, the film may have been made explicitly to outrage the Muslim world, like shouting "Fire!" in a crowded theater when there is no fire.

Which, for the benefit of our overseas friends, *is* illegal.

That the worst our country has to offer are the FL hate preacher types is a testament of how great our country is for the seperation of church and state.

Sadly the fanatical religious muslim versions of our preacher fire RPG into the cars of their most true hard working allies.

The preacher and congregation should be made to pay resitution to the families of the fallen.



The dark side in me still growls 'fuckem if they can't take a joke' and wishes harm on the Islamic killers. But we have had enough killers in our longest war/crusade in America's history.


I've had my cartoons banned in countries like Afghanistan and China by those governments. Should our State Department now have a censor board 'The dept of Peace' to prevent the mental equivalent of a un civilized Christian Pit Bull from inciting world war ?

And what about the fuck wit Arab who dubbed some porn in Arabic so the average moron could be inflamed?


If Al Quada starts dubbing Rush Limbaugh, Lou Dobbs, Hannity, Levin, Slaughter, Brit Hume,Paul Ryan, Mitt and Congressman West in Arabic

Oddly enough, the mob that attacked the embassy no doubt thought that they were bringing some wrongdoers to justice, merely by national association...they can't reach the Americans who made the film, so they go after the ones they can reach. Now the call by America is to bring them to justice. If that is done, other people in the Muslim world will respond by further retaliation against America to bring the Americans who brought the Lybian mob to justice to justice! Ah, yes........JUSTICE! We all want it. I can see no forseeable end to such a line of reaction and counterreaction, revenge and counter-revenge....except for everyone to sober up at some point and just stop.

The price for misinterpretation of religious words,magical thinking and personal teddy bears is grim. The only clarity in the eyes of violent morons is aiming and firing.

Congress shall make no law regarding religion and its practice.
The clarity of the founding fathers is still misunderstood.

The communists attempted to regulate religion as the dangerous vehicle it is. Epic failure.

As unlikely as it sounds, Reagan may have had the key when he said at the UN "sometimes I think if we all experienced an extratresstrial encounter (sic threat) we would drop our petty differences and unite as a world."


LH maybe just maybe this incident with ALL its absurdities and deliberate misunderstanding, can serve as THE evolutionary teaching moment for healthy minds and zealots who shoot first and ask questions later.

What gets me is that, by their very nature, followers of Judaism and Christianity, must believe that prophet of Islam is a charlatan, and likewise followers of Islam and Judaism don't believe that Jesus was the son of god.
Infact, the very existance of any one of those three religions is an insult any other two.
And, of course, there are the others i.e. the ones using logic and their brains who realised a long back that all religions should be mocked - and totally marginalised - as dangerous fairy tales!

Now they are saying it may have been a coordinated attack to coincide with the anni of 9/11...I thought this was a good thing to point out, (NOT that I believe all Faux News has to say):

They said some Libyans tried to fight to defend the U.S. post while it was under attack, even carrying Stevens' body to a hospital. The Libyan doctor who treated Stevens also told The Associated Press that he died of severe asphyxiation, apparently from smoke inhalation, and that he tried for 90 minutes to revive him. There continue to be conflicting reports about the circumstances of Stevens' death.

The reporter's question, at least as quoted, is itself a provocation.

As far as I know, the phrase "act of war" has no legal standing. A nation may take any affront - real or imagined - to be an "act of war" and respond any way it sees fit. Then the ball is in another court, of course.

But the public, I believe, thinks an "act of war" is something clearly defined by some international code of law and that must be answered with military force. Since the death of the ambassador and his staff was caused by an attack on U.S. territory (the consulate grounds), it was *in that sense* no different from the 9/11 attacks, which Pres. Bush declared, with justification, "an act of war."

If Obama had said, "Yes, it's an act of war," that would mean he'd be giving orders to retaliate against the government of Libya, which (unlike Afghanistan in 2001)is more or less an American ally. It would be absurd. What's more, FOX could then slam him for mishandling whatever happened next, including getting America into another war as the result of "leading from behind" in Libya last year.

But if Obama had said straight out, "No, it is not an act of war" FOX could then replay Bush's "act of war" sound bite, show the burning consulate in split screen with the collapsing WTC, and "prove" to people who think war is cool just how stupid and spineless the current President is for denying that an attack on American territory and citizens is an "act of war."

They can do it anyway: "Obama won't call it an act of war (even though YOU know it is)!" Cue split-screen.

The President's actual statement shows he can keep his head when people around him are losing theirs and blaming him for it because that's how they make a living.

Correct. The US has hate crime laws that pertain to assault battery and death but no hate speech laws.

Pursuant to the 1st ammendment free speech has become a variety of things and has been modified in a very grim manner recently.

Speech is now cash, and after the Citizens United Supreme Court ruling, Millions of dollars by secret donors be they American or not are allowed to influence Federal Elections.
Speech used to be all kinds of expression be it rolling your eyes , books, movies or even porn. Now that speech has become money the issue of free speech is as corrupt as money used for any nefarious use.

If we had hate speech laws what would happen regarding money being used for hateful reasons?

Yes a new Constitutional ammedment is needed as a result of Citizens United rulings, at least to bring speech back to being expression and not "he who has the most cash rules".

The Guy has disappeared from view. Very upset, but denies responsibility.

So, he puts up the film under a pseudonym, then goes into hiding, so terribly upset at what has happened, but denying any responsibility for the unintended consequences. Thing is, violence in the Mid-East was certainly a potential consequence, intended or not, and the guy must have had some awareness of that to have worked under a pseudonym to begin with.

On the rare occasions I am deliberately insulting, I am not surprised that some people are insulted.

Hate and "righteous judgement" beget hate and "righteous judgement." It doesn't matter where the "begatting" begins. What makes a difference is when any person is willing to stop hating and stop making "righteous judgement."

There are the seeds of an opportunity within this tragedy for greater understanding and tolerance between cultures to arise from the ashes, and for haters and "righteous judgers" to reflect on the cost of intolerance of differences, lack of respect, ignorance of other cultures and societies, and emotional reactivity to what has become a very small world.
I read the news quotes from officials in Egypt about the non-lethal assault on our embassy there, and find myself first thinking, why don't they speak up, point out the US Government had nothing to do with this, and protests and attacks against our Embassy in Egypt are senseless. Then I consider that our cultures and mores are so different that perhaps even the highest leadership in many countries of the Mid-East don't understand the degree of individual freedom, hegemony and diversity represented within our society, and protected and allowed under our laws. In many of those countries, it may be that protected by law means sanctioned, if not endorsed by government and that our ways are incomprehensible. It may mean the highest leadership of those countries understands perfectly well, but does not want to lose their fragile hold on power. It may mean some combination of the two, or may mean I completely do not comprehend.

It is not possible to understand irrationality. However, it is possible to accept that mankind is often more irrational than not. The more rational among us then have to decide what to do with that awareness.

So how's this for conspiracy speculation: the Koch brothers cut a check to the film-maker with the understanding that he will distribute it after the Democratic Convention with the help of the Irreverent Terry. Nothing like an international crisis to shift focus from the more basic issues of the campaign. And Obama was suddenly leading in the polls.

Here's some background on the Ambassador who was killed:

Ambassador Chris Stevens, a former Peace Corps volunteer, died in an attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya on Tuesday, along with three other Americans, and news of his death caused concern and sorrow in a region that is home to many diplomats and foreign-affairs advisers. It appears Stevens died while attempting to organize an evacuation of the compound, according to initial reports from Congressional and military leaders.

"They go into these countries with a handshake, not a gun," noted John Coyne, a Peace Corps veteran from Pelham Manor, speaking of Stevens' background in the Peace Corps and the diplomatic service. "What struck me was that he was going into the building to rescue people. You go to where the problem is, that's a typical Peace Corps reaction, that's what he was doing," said Coyne, who runs a website for Peace Corps veterans.

The attack on the embassy seems to have been a military attack by Salafist extremists, who have been bombing and destroying Sufi mosques, and attacked the Tunisian embassy this week, as well. Quaddafi(or however you spell his name) manage to keep them in check, but the democratically elected government seems powerless to restrain them.

The Salafists are the fastest growing segment of Islam, and are financially encouraged by our good and constant friends, the Sauds.

The "repressive and tyrannical regimes" that we were so eager to see fall focussed a lot of that repression and tyranny on these folks. Kind of reminds me of how glad we were to see that repressive, tyrannical Shah of Iran fall...

""Perhaps the U.S. has too much freedom of speech.""

I think it's more the case that Americans have forgotten the context within which the founding fathers wrote the right to free speech into the constitution.

In their day an extremist could air his obnoxious views to a few mates in the saloon without any really serious damage being done (some Native Americans might disagree), but he couldn't reach enough people to have real influence.

Even radio and television didn't alter that situation very much, since program controllers simply blanked those idiots.

The internet has changed all that. Now the extremist can post his filth world wide and cause massive damage on an international scale.

Time to re-think "Free Speech" in the context of modern communications, and enact laws permitting the prosecution and punishment of slime like Rev Terry Jones for performing the exact equivalent of shouting "FIRE!" in the world's largest theatre, with predictable consequences which are exactly the result he desires to achieve.

""Infact, the very existance of any one of those three religions is an insult any other two.""

That's exactly the kind of ill informed comment that leads to these events.

The Koran refers to Christians as "People of the Book", and respects them as legitimate followers of the same deity.

You should not equate the twisted interpretations of a minority of religious fanatics with the Islamic religion itself.

However, there are some things that ARE different. Islam takes insults to its prophet much more seriously than Christians do, and their reactions are much more physical.

Knowing that and paying their religion the respect it deserves is the way to peaceful co-existence, which would require the effective muzzling of hatemongers like Terry Jones.

I want to see the Benghazi killers in the dock, but only if Terry Jones is treated the same.

If you shout "fire" in a theatre knowing it to be a lie, you are guilty of a wicked, malicious and potentially deadly deception.
If you honestly believe there to be a fire, you have a right and a duty to warn others of your fear.

Christian beliefs are mocked all the time.
Why should any religion be more worthy of respect than any other?

Keith, I'm getting the impression that you consider the film to be defensible, as a "sincere" effort to "shout fire". Have you watched the lined clip of the film? I skimmed it; there was no way I could stomach the entirety of it. I've seen other things just as sick filmed or circulated as political or religious screeds, but I haven't personally seen anything sicker.
