“The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam,” said President Obama. And in Egypt Judge Saif al-Nasr Soliman agrees:

US-Based Anti-Islam Filmmaker, 6 Others Sentenced To Death By Egypt Court

Boy, when Hillary said at the memorial service that we’re gonna get that guy who made the video, she wasn’t kidding. Mr Yousseff or Nakoula or whatever he’s called this week has been convicted of “intentionally committing acts to harm the unity of the country and peace of its land;” “calling to divide the country into small states on a sectarian basis and harming national unity;” and “using religion to promote extremist ideas resulting in religious division and disrespect [of] heavenly religion” – all of which are apparently capital crimes in the new Egypt.

By the way, this paragraph jumped out:

The film, which insulted the prophet Muhammad, sparked violent protests and attacks on U.S. embassies across the Middle East when it was released in September. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in what is now accepted as a terrorist attack during a protest at the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

As every sentient being now knows (see M Walsh, A McCarthy, P Kirsanow, etc, below), there was no movie “protest” in Benghazi. None. But, two-and-a-half months on, NBC News still thinks those four corpses are something to do with this guy Yousseff. Maybe we should just cut to the chase and get some American judge to sentence him to death for quadruple homicide.
