MR says: "In the consensus view of modern American liberalism, it is hilarious to mock Mormons and Mormonism but outrageous to mock Muslims and Islam. Why?" -Wall Street Journal

'Hasa Diga Eebowai" is the hit number in Broadway's hit musical "The Book of Mormon," which won nine Tony awards last year. What does the phrase mean? I can't tell you, because it's unprintable in a family newspaper. ...

The "Book of Mormon"—a performance of which Hillary Clinton attended last year, without registering a complaint—comes to mind as the administration falls over itself denouncing "Innocence of Muslims." This is a film that may or may not exist; whose makers are likely not who they say they are; whose actors claim to have known neither the plot nor purpose of the film; and which has never been seen by any member of the public except as a video clip on the Internet.

Good article. We need to push for the moderate Muslims to please stand up to rescue their religion from extremism. The major piece that is missing - the economic and political meddling of the U.S. in the Middle East. Propping up medieval dictators who create mind-blowing wealth gaps with oil money - that's terrible foreign policy. Not only does it create desperately poor and militantly ignorant also makes these folks hyper-vigilant about further Western insults. It doesn't justify their response - but it does lend some necessary context.
