Yesterday the nation took a moment of silence to reflection upon the many tragedies of 9/11. Thousands of people have died as a result of an event that has its origins in religion and religious conflict.
Later in the evening we were informed of another conflict overseas, this time resulting from an American produced (with over "100 Jewish donors") Anti-Islamic film entitled "Innocence of Muslims," by Sam Bacile. The film itself has been finished for over two years, but has only recently sparked interest from its coverage overseas. Hundreds of protestors swarmed the American consulate and embassy in Libya and Egypt, respectively.
