Why did @BBCWorld snub me?

A while ago, at the height of the current Muslim – West conflict further exacerbated by the amateur, derogatory film concerning The Prophet Mohammad, I read an article on the BBC, my #1 source for world news and felt the need to write in with my views.

So I sent them the following:

Comments: Friday prayer sermons in Egypt were alight yesterday with calls of keeping the peace in the face of this incident.

What the West fails to realize is that it is more pertinent to deal with the cause of the problem rather than the results. Yes, people are OUTRAGED at the movie, and no, the West is doing nothing about it. The West calls for an end to the RESULTS of the movie when they should be condemning the makers of the movie, in actuality, the violence is a direct result of their actions.

Upstream prevention rather than downstream correction.

Islam prohibits depiction of any of the Prophets, whether it is Abraham, Noah or even Jesus. A little respect is not too much to ask.

I did my part and cleared my conscience, later I received an email from BBC correspondent Nathan Williams (below):

Dear Ayman Nassar,

Thankyou for your message to the BBC. Would you like to talk more about your views? If so, let me know when I can call you.

I have yet to hear from them…

Come on already BBC!

Update: According to the BBC, the maker of the amateur film has been arrested for violating his parole which prevents him from accessing computers without officers’ supervision (link).
