A clash of civilizations?

Reader comment on item: Another Islamist Assault, Another Western Cringe

Submitted by Larry (United States), Sep 13, 2012 at 12:45

Ten years ago, our "ally" Egypt, through its government controlled media, produced and aired throughout the Middle East, a 41-segment television series, "Horseman Without A Horse." It was played despite US requests that it be banned as anti-Semitic.

Egyptian officials denied that the series, a non-stop attack against infidels and Jews, contained anything against Jewish people in general. One scene has religious Jews murdering a gentile child to use his blood to prepare Passover matzoh.

Egypt replayed the series in March 2012. There have never been protests in Egypt or any other Muslim country, or by any Muslim groups in the West, to this frontal attack on other religions. The "clash of civilizations" is now playing at your nearest Arab embassy.
