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.

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

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 !
