People of America, if this doesn't demonstrate the creepiness of the radical Islamists, I don't know what does. For a second time inside two weeks a significant bounty has been put up for the death Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the man who produced "Innocence of Muslims." Both rewards come from Pakistanis.
Former Pakistani lawmaker Ikramullah Shahid told demonstrators protesting the movie in Peshawar on Monday that he'd pay $200,000 to anyone who kills the filmmaker, according to Siraj Ul Haq, a senior leader of the religious group that organized the rally.
Nine days ago, current Pakistani Railway Minister Ghulam Ahmad Bilour personally offered a $100,000 reward to anyone who would kill the filmmaker. Bilour clarified to CNN he was speaking for himself and not as a government representative.
After he posed the initial bounty, Bilour was asked whether he was concerned about committing or condoning a crime as a government official.
"I am a Muslim first, then a government representative," Bilour said.
Now, here are two leaders in Pakistan openly calling for the murder of an American citizen for exercising a right under the U.S. Constitution. On top of it, they are offering money for someone to do the deed. Where is our government in defending the man's rights? Where is our government in dealing with those who are threatening and calling for violence against one of our citizens?
Shame on those in our government who stand by and allow such barbarous behavior to take place while the world sits by and watches. Perhaps we should not hold our breath in hoping that Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood member Mohamed Morsi will talk to Pakistan about how they should have limits on their freedom of speech. I'm sure he is all in favor of murdering someone for the production of a pathetic excuse for a film.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook, Google Plus, & Twitter.
