Protest Against America on September 11

    Today (of all days) Muslims in Cairo, Egypt staged a protest against an American film that attacked their forebear, Prophet Muhammad.  They climbed the American embassy. took down the American flag and replaced it with a black flag.

    Here in the United States, we recognize the right to protest.  We also recognize the right to produce films.  In fact, films can be a form of protest.  Neither right takes precedence over the other.  However, I think September 11 is probably not the most conducive time for Muslims to express a grievance against the United States. We praised them for what the media termed a bloodless revolution, but I bet there are more than a few Americans who see red right now.

    Do you think the timing of their protest is significant? How would you have felt about their cause if they had chosen a different date? … ale/nR8CM/

    They do not take kindly to mockery of the prophet.
    From the article, the film is pretty inflammatory.
    However, the filmmaker does not represent America or Americans.
    Just as militant extremists do not represent all Muslims.
