A Map of ‘Innocence of Muslims’ Protests

The disease has spread and it looks like global chicken pox

Print Email

The image above is a Google Map posted earlier today detailing, in pinpoints, the spread of violent protests attributed to the hate film “Innocence of Muslims.”

For those seeking more context, I’d like to point back to our excellent essay “Beware of Even Numbers” from this morning by Zachary Novetsky on the media’s failing to cover the origins of the film responsibily. Check it out here.

We’ve also got a stellar offering from Matt Welch about the pernicious claim among some commenters that the film and not the mobs are to blame for the violence.

Tablet is committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing on Jewish life, all free of charge. We take pride in our community of readers, and are thrilled that you choose to engage with us in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse). Starting today, then, we are asking people who'd like to post comments on the site to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping us bring you the ambitious journalism that brought you here in the first place.

Readers can still interact with us free of charge via Facebook, Twitter, and our other social media channels, or write to us at Each week, we’ll select the best letters and publish them in a new letters to the editor feature on the Scroll.

We hope this new largely symbolic measure will help us create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all of our readers, and, as always, we thank you deeply for your support.

Islam consists of several strains, from those who dont mind coexisting peacefully with all other religions to those who believe in a caliphate and believe the only choices are Islam or the sword. Relations between the Catholic Church and other religions were problematic until Vatican II came about. Islam needs its own similar movement, in which universally respected clerics proscribe violence against non-Muslims. It would have to be a cleric on the order of Sheikh Qaradawi. Unfortunately, Qaradawi has said that violence against Jews and gays is kosher

This riots are an example of manufactured rage.

The reason why all the worlds scumbag muslim & marxist rioters burn the
flags of only 3 nations, the USA, the UK & Israel, is obvious – because
those 3 flags represent Freedom & Democracy. Nobody burns the Palestinian,
Egyptian, Jordanian, Saudi, Iraqi, Syrian, Iranian, Russian, Chinese, Cuban,
Zimbabwe, South African, Nigerian, Pakistani, Libyan, Venezuelan or any other
3rd world flags because they aren’t worth anything !
In fact I wouldn’t even
wipe my backide on any of those flags since I respect my backside more than
those filthy rags !
