    Copts are in trouble in Egypt, this will not help them.

      I just finished reading the AP story at NPR and am envisioning North Africa and the Levant exploding if this isn't quickly contained and the conspiracy (yes, this counts as one) is revealed.

      And i can't help but wonder if the forces that are running these bozos -- Klein, Nakoula, etc -- calculated that a few thousand dead Coptic Christians would put Obama in a real bind.

      Just saying.

        But yes, the backlash against the copts is going to be huge and, Egypt aside, Lebanon is a MASSIVE powder keg with Greek Orthodox, Coptic Christians - and a gazillion Syrian refugees.  If anyone lights a match in that country it'll blow up like a tanker full of dynamite.  I've always thought that Lebanon is one fist fight away from the next civil war and depending on how this goes (do the key opinion leaders strike conciliatory tones?  or double down?), it is not difficult at all to imagine this as the first shot.
