The media is a huge contributor to a lot of unrest around the world. During the London riots, it was mainly British media that aggravated emotions in people by a reporting that sought to inflame and stir emotions to gain more readers and viewers – and more profits in Murdock’s coffers.
With the announcement to the Islamic world that a “jew” had made an offensive film about Mohammed, the already brewing violence that has been ongoing during the entire Arab spring got another reason to vent their indoctrinated anger and hatred, meticulously taught at mosques since Muslims are children.
The report turned out to be wrong, and the filmmaker appears to be a Christian – another hated group by the Muslims. Well, we argue that the blame on the film is completely invented by the media. Fact is that the entire film is not available on the internet anyways. And most of the Muslim countries that started the riots, don’t even have access to the film and cannot view the content through the internet channels available since the internet is heavily censored. Muslims in the Middle East can’t surf all of the web from the West. In addition, the majority of rioters are uneducated and unemployed. They can’t understand English (the film was in English).
Would you ask Muslims to describe the scenes in the film, I doubt you will even find a handful who are able to do so! The media has created upcoming persecution of Coptic Christians all across the Muslim world, of which they need to be made responsible.
