This has nothing to do with Terry Jones and everything to do with killing Americans on the anniversary of 9/11.

But, please, continue with the false equivalences and keep making excuses for farking cave men that should be ground up for fertilizer.

I can only hope that Obama has enough of a spine to order the intelligence agencies to find out who organized this and carried it out and then order the armed forces to kill them immediately - at this point I'm guardedly optimistic.

PBUH is what muslims must write after Mohammad. It's short for "Peace be upon him". Short explanation: They have to attach the proper honorifics to all of their holy people or it's a real bad thing.

thunderbird8804: The right to storm a consulate and murder someone over hurt feelings.


Of course not. But I happen to think there's more going on here than the stories have said so far. Consuilates and embassies should be protected by the local military. It seems suspicious to me that they aren't being protected. I think this more than some random mob pissed over Youtube. And because this is happening in multiple countries on a day of the week normally not used for Islamic protesting and on 9/11, I think there is more here than meets the eye.

Shanghai_Flyer: What does Terry Jones have to do with these incidents?



Nothing as far as I know.


Sam Bacile, an American citizen who said he produced, directed and wrote the two-hour film, said he had not anticipated such a furious reaction.

"I feel sorry for the embassy. I am mad," Bacile said.

Speaking from a telephone with a California number, he said the film was produced in English and he doesn't know who dubbed it in Arabic.

The full film has not been shown yet, he said, and he said he has declined distribution offers for now.

"My plan is to make a series of 200 hours" about the same subject, he said.

Morris Sadek, an Egyptian-born Christian in the US known for his anti-Islam views, told the AP news agency from Washington that he was promoting the video on his website and on certain TV stations, which he did not identify.

evoke: Still haven't heard anything from Obama about this.

Our embassy in Cairo invaded by terrorists. Our flag burned. An American citizen murdered at an American consulate in Libya. All this on 9/11.

The only thing we've heard from the White House is that, paraphrased: "respect of religion is a cornerstone of American society". Liberal apologists. Yup.

Where the fark is Obama?

Probably playing a round of golf.


Yeah, where is he? He should be on the roof of the embassy with an M-60 firing indiscriminately. The fact that he's not just shows what a spineless sekrit mooslim libtard he really is.

madgonad: Screening the movies was deliberately provocative.


So if I make a movie or documentary that is liable offend someone, I shouldn't be allowed to publicly screen it lest I seem "provocative"?

madgonad: You know how pissed-off you get when you see crowds in the Middle East burning American flags?


I don't get pissed off when I see Muslims burning American flags. I guess I'm just not that sensitive. In fact, had they responded to this film by just burning American flags, no one would give a shiat, just business as usual in the Middle East. Instead they murdered a diplomat and burned down a consulate.

madgonad: except in our country it is legal to burn a flag but in their country it is ILLEGAL to insult Islam.


The thing about Sharia law is that it only applies to those who are stupid enough to impose it on themselves. These films were not even screened in an a Muslim country and violated no law, domestic or international. The same can't be said for the actions of these religious fanatics.

They don't think he's god. It's an atheist country. Instead of worshiping God, they worship human constructs, which is what would happen if you eliminated religion... people would still find shiat to kill each other over.

Vegan Meat Popsicle: machoprogrammer: Yeah, let's blame him and not the guys who killed the diplomat. Because it is so hard to not outrage over someone making a film about your sky-wizard prophet

Or we could blame the both of them. Or we could just point out that religious people, having actively chosen to abandon reason, are almost inevitably doomed to this sort of shiat all around.

When you start to believe that your opinions are intractable and absolutely untouchable pillars of reality after you came to them entirely through "faith", this becomes unavoidable in the long term because everybody who does that isn't going to draw the same random horseshiat conclusions out of their asses. The only solution is for all religious people to grow a motherfarking brain and stop chasing after magic in the sky.


Or we could act reasonably, respect the right to free speech and freedom of religion and hold solely accountable those who act like violent savage barbarians. Sad to see so many people who think fear (terror) is a good enough reason to even question constitutional rights.

The blame for these violent acts lays ONLY with those who committed them.

So far the information I've been able to find, one person has died, but I'm not able to find out much more than that. Rather than inciting a mob mentality by labeling all protesters as "murderers," I think it would be better to wait until more facts come in. If you have more accurate information, please share it.

Apparently "we" did.

Here's the trailer they're all pissed about:

Sam Bacile, an American citizen who said he produced, directed and wrote the two-hour film


OK, so I thought this was going to be some sort of slanted documentary but it is more like a badly acted comedy. Its a bunched of browned up white people, bad green screens and over the top stereotypes. I laughed at the Life of Brian. Why can't they laugh at this? Also this is a 2 hour movie? You learn all you need to learn about the film in the 13.5 min trailer there. Its like a cliff notes version.
