Pitts: Response injures Islam as much as insults
I was not aware of a film insulting to Islam until American embassies were attacked in Libya and Egypt. Thus, Muslim extremists managed – through the expedient of riot and rampage – to bring attention to the very thing they loathe. The irony of that likely goes over their heads like a jet.
“Innocence of Muslims” is said to have had a budget of $5 million. From the look of it, maybe 40 of those dollars made it to the screen – you’d see better production value in a home movie. Of course, it’s not the quality that’s causing the problem.
Islam forbids depictions of the Prophet Muhammad. “Innocence” not only depicts him but also shows him as a philanderer, child molester, killer and feckless fop.
