One Small Voice. A Lot of Big Ideas. Let Freedom Ring!
Egypt is calling for the arrest of Florida preacher Terry Jones and Sam Bacile, the guy who made the film, “Innocence of Muslims” that so many want us to belive led to the riots and murders. (ahem) And of course they want to try them under Sharia Law which would result in their execution.
From the examiner: Egyptian president, liberals, say filmmakers, pastor, should be arrested, punished:.
On Wednesday, Egyptian President Mohamed Mursi and American liberals called for the arrest and punishment of those responsible for the online video that allegedly motivated the attacks on U.S. embassies in Egypt and Libya.
Reuters reported that Mursi, a member of the Muslim Brotherhood, “asked the Egyptian embassy in Washington to take legal action in the United States against makers of a film attacking the Muslim Prophet Mohammad, the official state news agency said on Wednesday.”
This situation gets murkier by the day. And honestly, didn’t our own President Obama and Secretary of State Clinton feed into this foreign-relations fiasco by condemning a hateful little video first, instead of standing up for American lives and American values?
But with this latest outrageous suggestion, Egypt has effectively confirmed what many around the world already know–Islam, as practiced by many, is an intolerant, immoral, anti-freedom, abusive “religion”. It’s not things like videos or cartoons that shape non-muslims view of Islam. It’s the behavior of out-of-control Islamists as witnessed during the past week that shape most Americans’ point-of-view.
So you hate us. Well, I am personally not too impressed with way you handle your government affairs, treat your women, persecute Jews, Christians and even opposing sects within the Islamic order, or try to force your will on the rest of the world.
Arresting Americans on American soil for…Freedom of Speech?
Good luck with that.
