A Touch of Arab Fall in the Air

I, for one, am not buying it that it was a trailer for an amateurish movie, which Rich Galen points out may not even exist fully, that set off a riot in Egypt and an attack on the US embassy in Libya. Then add in the monumental unlikelihood that that it was September 11th was just a coincidence. My hearing in the high band isn't what it used to be, and I'm not sure it was ever that good, but it sure sounds like someone blew a dog whistle.

All of which is neither here, nor there, and only goes to show that, in the Middle East, it is the same as it ever was.

Sure, the names are different, but serial apologies, or no, the season is changing:
Oh if only Islamic radicals would riot over the HHS contraception mandate and gay marriage. If they did, the Administration would fall all over themselves to apologize.
Don’t believe me? Consider yesterday’s events well chronicled by Jeff Emanuel.
A group in the United States exercised their first amendment rights, which set off rioting yet again among the religion of peace. Egyptians stormed the American Embassy, torn down the American flag, burned it, and replaced it with a black flag used by Al Qaeda. In Libya, our consulate was attacked and an Embassy employee killed.
The Obama Administration’s Egyptian Embassy responded by apologizing that someone somewhere exercised their first amendment rights and dared offend the religion of peace. In fact, the Embassy wants it known that no religion should ever be offended ever. So you Christians who think Jesus is the only path to Heaven, don’t say it. It might offend someone.
I guess now Barack Obama will abandon calls for gay marriage and Democrats everywhere will stop calling Christians “bigots” for standing up for their religion. After all, it appears now to be American policy to apologize for offending religious sensibilities. continue reading...

Skepticism about the "authenticity" of the film continues to steam along.

Update 2:

Well, it appears that the movie is real, but several months old with no real distribution, so its role as riot inciter is still suspect. There's still more than meets the eye here.
