Innocence of Muslims

Is there any real evidence that this is really a movie and not just a trailer? Can any of us make an anti-Islam video, post it to YouTube and get a reaction from the fanatics? I'm tempted to try it.

Hello Jim. You might be right in your suspicions. It may have been last week when I heard something over NPR to the effect that the trailer could have been all that there was. Who knows whether the Muslims understand that anyone anywhere could make some nasty and provocation film or other message denigrating their faith or prophet. Heck, I suppose goons at Al Qaeda could do this just to keep things boiling over there.

That being said, I would not do such a thing. Why provoke a reaction, especially one in which people get killed? To see and any of the insinuations in the trailer were true, I read a little about Mohammed on Wikipedia, a Catholic website on Islam, and a write-up on Islam and their prophet from an evangelical institute (S.I.M). All of them said pretty much the same things and n-o-n-e of them provided any basis for the nasty things in that film about Mohammed. The only thing all three of them said about his private life is that when he was young he married a woman of station who was about 15 years his senior and by all accounts their marriage was a good one. Bottom line, when one speaks, speak only the truth....

Best,
