I neither accept or reject it...it happened far away a long time ago in a culture of which I have absolutely no personal experience...NO ONE does that
is alive today. All we have is the documented writings of the people who lived then.
But it doesn't matter...it is not my place to judge anyone...and in this situation it is distraction and irrelevant in the context of the movie and
it causing offense to Muslims.
Some cultures offered up POW's as sacrifices to their gods. It was still the taking of a human life.
Some African tribes killed and ate the members of other tribes, looking at them as livestock. It was culturally acceptable for them. I wonder how the
people that were being eaten felt about it?
I'm sure they did not like it one bit. But what does that have to do with the topic of this thread?
We are (supposed to be) discussing this movie trailer...of a movie whose creator is on the record as saying was intentionally created to stir up
strife and is based on a negative personal opinion of a predominant religion...it was made to stir up some conflict. And it did...4 people died
because of it.
Now it turns out that the person who made the movie might be an Arab Christian who has family ties in the ME and possibly has lived there. If that be
the case, then is the person responsible for the movie in some sense accountable for what happened afterward?
Not in the sense that he can control the reactions of others...but knowing full well, most likely, just how much of a reaction it would cause and that
it could become deadly for Americans in the midst of a place already heated to the boiling point? ESPECIALLY if he is not even an American but made it
purposely appear as if he were, and therefore making the victims of the raid on the embassy, who were literally innocent in regard to this movie and
the sentiments it stirred up, appear to be complicit in his own deliberation provocation!
