— The Erimtan Angle —

A look at the conflicting reports about who’s behind the 14-minute anti-Prophet Muhammad trailer that’s sparked violent protests in the Middle East (13 Sep 2012).

Meanwhile, the rage goes on and on and on . . . so, here is the trailer causing all these diverse Muslims in the Middle East and beyond to shout and protest.

The atrocious clip has led to a lot of mayhem, as recounted by Anne Sewell in the Digital Journal: ‘Protests and outrage are now spreading to Lebanon and Iran, and continue in Yemen and Egypt, over the film “Innocence of Muslims”, released on YouTube, which insults the Prophet Mohammed’.[1]  Going into detail, as follows: ‘Lebanon: On Thursday [,13 September), in the Lebanese city of Tripoli, several hundred people have rallied, and are burning both American and Israeli flags, in outrage over the American-made film mocking Islam’s prophet Mohammed. In Sidon, on Lebanon’s Mediterranean coast men and women carried banners containing slogans like “freedom does not mean insults to religion” and “who are you, you lowlifes, to insult what is good for people.” Meanwhile the Pope visited Lebanon, amidst all the protests. Yemen: In Yemen on Thursday, at least 4 protesters have reportedly been killed, after hundreds of demonstrators stormed the U.S. embassy. According to witnesses, plumes of smoke were seen rising outside the embassy, while protesters chanted “Death to America”. Local media reported that two cars exploded after two bombs were thrown into the embassy compound. Heavy gunfire has also been heard in the area. Libya: As at 08:53 GMT on Friday [, 14 September), a 48-hour no-fly zone has been imposed in Benghazi, Libya, following the attacks on the city’s U.S. consulate that killed the American ambassador and three embassy staffers. All flights to and from the city have been suspended. Egypt: In Egypt this morning, Cairo police are erecting a wall of concrete blocks around the U.S. embassy in an attempt to prevent protesters from entering the compound, as outrage continues in the city’.[2]

Crowds are gathering in the Egyptian capital for a third day of protests against an anti-Muslim movie filmed by a US director (14 Sept 2012).

    Watched much of this video trailer and it is truly atrocious, and in many ways. It is an embarrassment that this kind of garbage can happen, and if I knew any of the people behind it, I would go out of my way to meet them face-to-face, ask what the hell is wrong with them, and tell them emphatically, they need to clean up and apologize.

    While watching it, I was trying to imagine what the storyline would be if this had been a 14-minute trailer done by Muslims, attacking Jesus’ reputation. Had this been the case, and had it been done as crudely as this trailer (the terrible green-screening, the absurd narrative, the complete lack of attention to sound and lighting, on and on…), all it would have needed was a laugh-track to become a simple and tasteless lampoon movie. Borat comes to mind; clearly a lampoon, with many extraordinarily wild lampoons, but also funny as hell. Nobody believes Kazakhstan is anything like what Borat presented, nor does anybody believe Americans are as rabid as Borat started to present when he sang the anthem at the rodeo (in the movie).

    Free speech is a nice idea, but wholesale insult is just hurtful and stupid.

    Insulting movie-making is wrong, and so is reactive violence. Neither should happen. Part of the problem here seems to be the technological gap. A machine gun vs. a slingshot. This movie trailer was produced, then distributed for all to see, attacking an important religious figure. Those most offended have no way to easily respond in kind (here, take this Christians, our movie trailer about your stupid Jesus-dude!; can you imagine the anger if they had Jesus saying ‘Love thine children … and pleasure yourself, too!’), so the venue for reaction goes primitive, to street violence.

    It would be great if someone would research and write up a true assessment of those involved in the making of this cinematic trash. How it came to be. Source of the money behind it. The sellout of souls who took silver pieces in their bit-parts leading to this tragedy. It is troubling to me, to think there are others on this planet, let alone in my own country, so depraved…
