Too high a price to pay
GIVEN the continuing dreadful outcome, I cannot help but feel that the American man who produced the internet film Innocence of Muslims, which was so grossly insensitive and insulting about the Islamic prophet Mohammed, should be punished.
No one likes their religious beliefs to be scorned. Such insulting reflections and personal bigotry are, at best, deeply hurtful, and, at worst, are an incitement to violence and outright killing.
No nation can afford to allow people to make such hugely derisory, hateful films or programmes. Anyone doing so should know that they will be held to account for such monstrous behaviour.
To have lost, in Benghazi, such a fine man as Christopher Stevens, the US ambassador to Libya, and three other diplomats, is far too high a price to pay for such deliberate abuse of freedom of speech.
