Egypt YouTube Blocked

More than fifty people in twenty countries have died as a result of the protests against the YouTube video, the Innocence of Muslims. And today, Judge Hassouna Tawfiq, ordered YouTube blocked for thirty days. The money shot: Lawyer Mohammed Hamid Salim, who filed the case against the Egyptian government, alleged the film constitutes a threat to Egypt’s security, adding that YouTube refused to remove the film despite its offensive content. Wow, that is a fragile government if a lousy movie can threaten it. Even though our politicians never do this in the United States, I have a feeling this is just a distraction from real issues, like rampant sexual assault. Or the sputtering economy.
