Beawiharta / Reuters, via the Washington Post.The steady parade of incredible childishness continues, around the Muslim world. The poor little things just can’t handle the fact that some insolent, Neocrusading Coptic Christian living in California dared make a movie that mocked their precious prophet Muhammad. Things had settled down a bit since the height of the fury late last week, but the Washington Post reports things have kicked up again, including in Beirut, Lebanon (WebCite cached article):

Tens of thousands of people hit the streets of Beirut to protest the controversial video mocking the prophet Muhammad on Monday, a massive rally organized by the Shiite Muslim militant group Hezbollah that was also an attempt to show the party’s strength.

Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, made a rare public appearance around 6 p.m. local time and led the crowds in chants pledging martyrdom to the prophet Muhammad.

“The world should know our anger will not be a passing outburst but that this is the start of a serious movement that will continue all over the Muslim world to defend the Prophet of God,” he told the crowd, who roared their approval as he spoke. Nasrallah also warned the U.S. that if the full anti-Islam movie is released, rather than the short clip that has been posted on YouTube, there will be “dangerous consequences.” The video supposedly promotes a full-length film.

The WaPo notes that different Islamic factions are trying to one-up each other in this effort to protest the movie “Innocence of Muslims”:

Sunni leaders, not to be outdone by their Shiite counterparts, also announced more protests on Monday. The controversial Sunni sheikh Ahmad Assir, who is based in the city of Sidon, announced a demonstration for his followers later this week.

Yes, guys, that’s the way to show the world how wonderful your religion is! Get into a pissing contest with your rival sects to show which of you can be more immature and violent. Well done, Muslims! You must be so proud! Why, I am just so impressed by all of you … it makes me want to run right out and start worshipping al-Lah along with you!!!

NOT … !
