Special Report: Morsi draws red line, veiled threats against those who "insult" Islam

Ah yes, that indefatigable Islamic line that cannot be crossed is, once again drawn for all to see.  Imagine if the Pope, on a regular Wednesday mass told the congregants that if anyone says anything bad about him (the Pope) that they (followers) need to go and avenge these crass insults with the death of those uttering blasphemous words.  World outrage would follow, but in the case of Morsi...nothing.  The world reacts not by condemning his statements but by upholding the victimization of Muslims and strengthening those threats.  Morsi may indeed be thankful that there were no deaths during the American embassy attack, but in his heart he prays that Muhammad's ideals will be the norm, both in Egypt and here in America.  The film is merely a pretext for the mass riots now filling the streets of Libya, Yemen, Sudan, Egypt and others. If it had not been this film it would have been something else.

Anti-Islam Film: Prophet is untouchable red line, Morsi

(ANSAmed) - CAIRO - The Prophet 'is a red line nobody can touch', Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi was quoted as saying by Egypt's Mena news agency comments on protests across Egypt and Libya and a film on the Prophet slammed as blasphemous. The Prophet 'is a red line for all Muslims and we refuse any attack', said the president. ''We will sacrifice with our soul and heart'' Morsi also said, citing a Muslim profession of faith. 

The Egyptian president, who had a phone conversation with US President Barack Obama before talks with European leaders and then a trip to Rome this afternoon, stressed his condemnation of 'all attempts to attack the Profet(sic) and the sacred principles of Islam'. .

Meanwhile he also assured Egyptian security forces will do everything in their power to protect foreigners in the country.

Since that "power" is based in sharia law and the Qur'an any protection of foreigners will fall under a definition that is exclusively Islamic and having nothing to do with how we perceive their application of Western civic law or rule.
Morsi asked also his US counterpart Barack Obama to ''take dissuasive measures against those trying to demolish relations with the US'';. Morsi also expressed his condolences for the death of the US ambassador in Libya in statements to Egypt's state television.

Talking about the ''dissuasive measures'' requested, Morsi cited Father Terry Jones stressing that ''he is the same person who tried to burn the Koran and is now trying to offend the Prophet'';.

It is easy for non-Muslims to insult Muslims, just say anything not glowing about any aspect of Islam and there you go.

''We don't attack anyone and do not accept any aggression against our sacred principles'' Morsi told state television after phone talks with Obama.
