    Christians in Egypt stand next to Muslims as anti-US sentiment grows
    Coptic Christians in Egypt stand next to Muslims as anti-US sentiment grows

    Anyone who has a inkling of familiarity with the Muslim world knows that sacrilege and blasphemy are not understood as acts of free speech, political expression, or artistic creativity. No, they are bright red lines that promise public panic and guarantee violence. Couple that reality with two centuries of colonial and neo-imperial European domination of the greater Middle East and you have the perfect storm for an international communications disaster. So, as history repeats itself, the only thing ludicrous is the incessant stubbornness of both the West’s commitment to “free speech” and the Muslim world’s rush to violence, the irony of which is lost upon them both.

    ... But one look at Sam Bacile’s film will demonstrate that its vitriolic message elevates it to the status of a hate crime. The movie depicts Muhammad as sexually licentious, insane, and fanatically violent. It draws upon (in the most uncreative ways) a long line of anti-Muslim stereotypes that date to the crusades. In short these stereotypes are to Islamophobia what blood libel is anti-Semitism.

    The Coptic Christians are trying to accommodate and placate in an effort to save their own lives. Too bad it isn't going to work.
