Anti-Islam filmmaker has no regret

Mark Bassely Youssef, the Egyptian Copt who made the "Innocence of Muslims" film is not sorry about putting it together:
The Egyptian-born Coptic Christian who made the anti-Islam film that sparked protests across the Muslim world has no regrets about his insulting portrayal of the Prophet Mohammad, according to an interview with The New York Times.

In his first public comments since the 14-minute trailer for his film, "Innocence of Muslims," gained notoriety in September, Mark Basseley Youssef told the newspaper he wanted to reveal what he called "the actual truth" about Mohammad and raise awareness of the violence committed "under the sign of Allah."

The film portrayed Mohammad as a womanizer, ruthless killer and child molester. The film touched off a torrent of anti-American unrest in Arab and Muslim countries. For many Muslims, any depiction of the prophet is considered blasphemous.
Reuters, who published this article, may want to consider that these horrific acts commited by Mohammed that the film brings up are written about in the Koran, and if they want, they can always get someone to research it to learn about all that.
In explaining his reasons for the film, he cited "atrocities" by Muslims. After a Muslim gunman killed 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas in 2009, "I became even more upset and enraged," he said in written comments conveyed to the Times through his attorney. A Times request to interview him in person was blocked by prison authorities.
I'm amazed. He really cares about the lives of the soldiers and military base staff who were murdered in cold blood by Nidal Hasan. Reuters should be ashamed of themselves for their use of quotations, which runs the gauntlet of being offensive to the victims of jihadism.

Youssef may not be perfect, but his feelings on the Religion of Rape are completely understandable, and good for him if he's not sorry for putting the film together. Besides, as was discovered, the film wasn't even what started the riots.
