I'm pretty sure it's because they are arguing about an imaginary being? How can you involve feelings and imaginary beings in world politics?

Surely there has to be some cut off point? I thought we had learned our lessons from the past?

These Children are getting all upset over a 14 min. video made by some group in mommys basment?


So they made fun of your god, who cares get over your self.
You are making your self look like a A$# by carrying on over something so pathetic.

No wonder they are always in turmoil and fighting, someone send them to the corner for time out.

how anyone could have watched more than 3 minutes of that crap film trailer is beyond me

Actually laws may have been broken. The filmmaker lied about what the movie was about and then dubbed over the actors. That is here nor there in regards to the Egyptian outcry though, they haven't a leg, or a stump, to stand on.

this is cleary a move to appease the extremists.

Any parent worth his/her weight in peanut butter knows that 'appeasing' bad behavior, i.e. a hissy fit, only feeds such behavior ...

Toned down, the two compare quite nicely, parenting and extremists ...

If you serve your child green beans for dinner, and the child throws the plate against the wall to express his distaste, do you apologize for serving green beans?

Or do you discipline the child for throwing the plate?

A hissy fit is a hissy fit ... Sometimes it's plates against the wall, and sometimes it's setting fire to an embassy and killing an ambassador ...

Governments world wide are run by horrible parents ...

Would you discipline your child if you thought you might wake up to a bomb strapped to your car in the morning? Other than that I agree.

bloody typical ... they protest the film westerners complain... they file charges against the film makers westerners complain and laugh ... then westerners wonder why the rest of the world has little to no respect for them ...

at least egypt is making an effort to solve the problem in a more civilized manner now rather than continuing with violence..

So you believe the solution is to remove free speach? That's kind of scary.

Well the US charges peole for crimes not comminted on US soil, the Spanish charged Allende, all sorts of people are making complaints about miscellaneous dictators and other bad dudes to the ICC, etc.

Why should moslems miss out??

As soon as they come up with actual crimes I am sure we will be happy to help them out.

Idiots...what a waste of time
After knowing the stance of the US public, they finally decided to charge ?
Talk about egyptian politics (domestic & international) to appease.

Brandenburg v. Ohio, 395 U.S. 444 (1969), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case based on the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The Court held that government cannot punish inflammatory speech unless that speech is directed to inciting, and is likely to incite, imminent lawless action.

So did they incite imminent lawless action with this movie?
