    6. The Rev. Steven Martin, writing for Huffington Post:
    I have no sympathy for anyone who would assassinate a U.S. ambassador. But I have even less sympathy for filmmakers who spread hatred and for pastors who knowingly incite violence. Jones, and his love of the limelight, needs no further introduction. This latest incident seems to have been sparked by his promotion of a $5 million film produced and directed by Sam Bacile, a filmmaker living in Los Angeles. Being both a filmmaker and a pastor, I can relate to the responsibility both offices carry.
    He has less sympathy for those who create crappy YouTube clips than those who would assassinate a U.S. ambassador?"

    He knows what he's doing.

    It's almost like you have more sympathy for Jones than you do for those that died and are still under threat.

    No, just confused...since Jones has zero to do with the deaths of those people...and zero to do with the fact that many more remain under threat of violence.

    I have no sympathy for Jones, but it looks like he's not the guy who made the movie either.

    I understand that. Yes, we have free speech in the US. But there's certain things you DO NOT do, just because! You don't stand up and yell FIRE in a move theater...and you DON'T purposefully make a film like Jones did. He knew it would piss the Muslims off....there was no doubt about it. I think he was completely wrong, he knew what would happen, and he should be arrested. Now i don't know if this film was really the cause of it all, but i'm not surprised that the muslims reacted this way. I'm in no way saying they were right in doing it...but we all know they don't care and they will not put up with dissing their muhammed.
