    •  Max plucked that one a bit out of context (7+ / 0-)

      I admire Max's work, but Steve Klein (who the quote is from) was wasn't referring to a political destabilization project or to the film's possible impact on the US election.

        Two clips were posted on YouTube on July 1 (13'02", title "The Real Life of Muhammad", comment "Part of the movie, "Life of Muhammad"..... اجزاء من فيلم حياة محمد") and 2nd (13'50", title "Muhammad Movie Trailer", comment "فضيحة الاسلام الكبري") by user "sam bacile".[64]

        By September, it[clarification needed] had been dubbed into Arabic and was brought to the attention of the Arabic-speaking world by Coptic blogger Morris Sadek, whose Egyptian citizenship had been revoked for promoting calls for an attack on Egypt.[65][66]

        A two-minute excerpt dubbed in Arabic was broadcast on September 8 by Sheikh Khalad Abdalla[67] on Al-Nas, an Egyptian television station,[10][68]

        On September 11, "Sam Bacile" YouTube account commented in Egyptian Arabic on a video from Al-Nahar TV uploaded 2 days earlier: "Idiots, this is an American film 100%".[69]

        The film was supported by pastor Terry Jones, whose burning of copies of the Quran previously led to deadly riots around the world. On September 11, 2012, Jones said that he planned to show a 13-minute trailer that night at his church the Dove World Outreach Center in Gainesville, Florida.[42] Jones said in a statement that "it is an American production, not designed to attack Muslims but to show the destructive ideology of Islam. The movie further reveals in a satirical fashion the life of Muhammad."[42]

        it may be parseing it to say they had no intent to's in the 'I'm just sayin/Is this bugging you, I'm not touching you' range of innocence' imo..this is the court of public opinion here, heh, I'm Judge Dread. :>

        Much shame on them.

        Good work here Bruce, thank you.
