Innocence of Muslims : aux comploteurs les mains pleines

Justin Raimondo n’a jamais ménagé sa tâche autour des complots, manipulations, coups fourrés et autres. Jamais il ne nous a paru pourtant emporté par l’ivresse de son propos, si bien que sa réflexion, quelle qu’en soit la conclusion et qu’on la partage ou non, comporte toujours un aspect enrichissant pour l’esprit du lecteur. C’est bien là l’essentiel et, cette fois encore, nous dirions même cette fois plus que jamais, il se plonge presque délicieusement dans l’imbroglio à la fois kafkaïesque et hollywoodien de l’étrange film sur “l’innocence des musulmans”, pour en sortir triomphalement, – énigme nullement résolue, cas nullement tranché mais l’esprit notablement aéré.

Ainsi, le 14 septembre 2012, sur, Raimondo examine le cas de l’étrange film Innocence of Muslims… «The murder of US ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other US diplomats at the hands of rioters probably wasn’t just another case of Islamists-gone-wild. The circumstances surrounding this horrific incident — the riot was in reaction to a “film” supposedly made by a mysterious Israeli-American director under what is probably a pseudonym — point to a carefully staged and well-thought out event. The question is: staged by whom?...»

Là-dessus, Justin développe son enquête. Comme toujours, travail terriblement fouillé, avec les liens et les références qui importent. Il décortique l’histoire improbable de cette étrange production post-hollywoodienne, post-kafkaïesque

«The key question to ask about this incident, and the motives of the film’s makers, is this: what did it accomplish? The answer is that it drove a wedge between Washington and its newfound Islamist allies, specifically the governments of Libya and Egypt. That’s why Hillary was so quick to absolve Tripoli of any responsibility: but her mere assertion cannot hide the reality of the split, which is sure to widen.

»Who would want to undermine Washington’s tilt toward the Islamists, however “moderate”? In what country — aside from the Land of the Neocons — are the Patai-like views dramatized in Innocence commonly held? Which of our vaunted allies is all but openly rooting for Romney, and would have cause to rejoice in what has got to be the low point of Obama’s presidency, at least in foreign policy terms? The ingredients were all there: a volatile country, Libya, with well-armed radical Islamists running loose, the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt, and a history of provocations aimed at Muslims specifically defaming and ridiculing the prophet Mohammed. All that was needed to produce outbreaks of violent rage was the right provocation...»
