Q&A: Why are Muslims angry over video?
Islamic scholar Moataz al-Khateeb explains what is behind a wave of recent protests over an anti-Islam video.
Matthew Cassel Last Modified: 19 Sep 2012 15:55
...
Why are some Muslims so angry over the depiction of the Prophet Muhammad?

All the prophets - Muhammad, Jesus Moses and others [of the Abrahamic religions] - are highly respected figures in the Islamic faith. One cannot differentiate between them in terms of the reverence that should be given to each. Therefore Muslims believe that the prophets have a higher status than other people. To ridicule them or their lives is an insult to the origin of their faith, and therefore any abuse to them is abuse of Muslims in general.


So where were the Muslim protests, flag burning, killing, calls to behead, with Andres Serrano's photograph Piss Christ? After all in this case the US Government through the National Endowment for the Arts actually paid for the work.

Americans are apparently more efficient at killing people they don't like -- Sikh Temple anyone? Colorado? Fort Hood?

And indeed the world suffers too many 'crazies'...

But also, how much hatred is our own press stirring up in the name of sensationalism to grab profits rather than keeping to sane honest journalism?...

Note:


Avaaz: What the media isn’t telling you about #MuslimRage

One US magazine cover screams out the media slant of the last two weeks... threatening us all.


13 Powerful Images of Muslim Rage

... we've collected 13 striking, powerful images of MUSLIM RAGE... ... a few that will strike a chill into your heart...


All very silly pathetic stuff that unfortunately is causing harm. So how do we shame the gutter press to get real?

All in our only world...

Skil, that is, in some ways a convenient characterization. It might mask the underlying hate that resides beneath the surface. Certainly, on our broadcasts there is enough hateful rhetoric to kick up dust -- and we all know there are plenty of weapons to go around to act on the rhetoric.

I think our inclination to say 'this doesn't happen in civilized countries' is somewhat too self-congratulatory.

It wont be to long and you wont be able to buy the product. Newspaper all over are closing down or focusing on a web site. My own paper in January will be only home deliverd 3 days a week. Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. O yes you can stop at a newsbox and buy one. Or as they say read our website. Im sorry websites suck for the full news, syndicated columinists and the comics.

And I think it wont be long and you will have to pay to get a tidbit of news on the website too.

I agree. Jounalists have forgotten to be impartial. In the advent of ambush journalism and opinufact reporting from Fox we are confronted with other news sources attempting to match Fox in their outragiousness and fact failures.

Perhaps the FCC could do its job and force news agencies to separate fact from opinion in its reporting. I recall a day when Op/Ed produced on TV news was presented as OP/ED not as just another part of the reporting process.

It is called fiduciary duty to the shareholder. Higher ratings means more advertising revenue. As soon as you go public that is the only thing that matters.

Now I'd love to see someone sue Fox and claim they are using false advertising saying it is news ...

LOL, "Inman, located between McPherson and Hutchinson, is located in just the right place for people who want a slower-paced life with easy access to bigger cities. Inman is a place with all the amenities needed for a thriving small town. From a well-stocked grocery store to local health care, that is why we're a place 1,377 people choose to call home."

You can't write/type that! Apple must have that trademarked, copyrighted, and patented, to thus wage thermonuclear Jihad against all who blaspheme such a term against the great round one and only one true Apple.

All other "I"s are idulterous!


So we have this all WRONG. It has been a certain range of religion with their Apple-infringing terms that are the blasphemes against innovation and... Ooooops! Just gone iBang!


Oh what a silly farce?...
