So now the idiot mob spreads to Jakarta -- how disappointing is that? Especially given that it should have been pretty clear by now to all but the most obtuse that all this trouble over a cheap-ass movie, insulting not only to Islam but to any thinking human being, was but an excuse for the fomenting of murder and mayhem, and ever so coincidentally on September 11th. Come on, people! How many times will you let yourself be turned to pawns, to be pushed about by the few, the extreme, the sick, the haters, happy to leave the blood on your hands? Stop a minute, think it through . . . do you really believe that one film made by a small handful of nuts is the same as a policy statement from the American nation at large? Do you imagine that it was submitted for approval to Congress and signed by the President himself? Have you read the newspapers, seen the television reports, or have you only listened to the shrill madness of the man on the street with the megaphone? Think, for Christ's sake, and for Mohammed's sake too! Innocent lives are too precious to be sacrificed on the alters of blind ignorance.
