A couple of months ago, a YouTube video called “Innocence of Muslims,” claiming to be a trailer for an independently produced movie, drew quite a bit of attention around the world. It’s a poorly produced movie by every standard, if it is indeed a movie, and not just a video. The video mocks Muslim reverence for the Islamic prophet Muhammad and denigrates his character, portraying him as an adulterer, power-mongering tribal warlord, pedophile, and stooge. The video, fourteen minutes long, was blamed initially for riots and attacks by Muslims on U.S. installations around the world, including a near-storming of the U.S. Embassy in Egypt and the deaths of a U.S. Ambassador and 3 other Americans in an attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
