Here's the reason, I suspect, that many Muslims blame the US for production and release of that film:

"YouTube blocked in Saudi Arabia after king orders ban on websites carrying anti-Islam film"

http://news.yahoo.com/youtube-blocked-saudi-arabia-king-orders-ban-...

When you've lived your life in a country where the government controls the media, you tend to assume that that's the way it is everywhere. WE know that if the US tried to shut down YouTube across the country, there would be an unimaginable 1st amendment uproar, which the government would lose, but that kind of freedom is unknown in most Islamic countries.

That's an interesting point, Archae.  Just a reminder of the importance of remembering the other person's context.

Pat for the win.

It's certainly rousing and evokes righteousness, but can it help solve the problem? Will it make militant Islamists and terrorists feel shitty enough to renounce Islam or Allah?

It's definately an effective way to stir the pot, but what's the final product? (Call me an idiot. I hope I'm just missing something simple!)

I'm converted now, or at least I appreciate his brilliant speaking (if not comedic) style. I hope it does some good, even if I don't see how. Maybe a few muslims can pick up on it and help popularize it, along with other magic tricks in their performances?
