SCOAMF's NewSpeak: "The Prophet Muhammad"?

This was mentioned by Steyn tonight on the Hewitt show.

“What we’ve seen over the last week, week and a half, is something that actually we’ve seen in the past, where there is an offensive video or cartoon directed at the prophet Muhammad,” he said. This “is used as an excuse by some to carry out inexcusable violent acts directed at Westerners or Americans.

Yes, we all know that "the video" was NOT the cause of the riots and murders.

More interesting is SCOAMF's use of the phrase highlighted in red.

When he speaks of Jesus, he does not say "Jesus, Son of God", or "Jesus Christ, Savior of the World."  He doesn't do that because it is not natural to do so in common discourse.

Nor is it natural to say 'prophet' before 'Mahomet' in common discourse--at least in America.

In other words having lived in a Muslim country and been in a Muslim school, he knows how to "speak" their language and perhaps connect a little better that "Bring it on"?

Shut the fuck up, Jim.

GREAT job of 'connecting', Jim.

Our ambassador in Libya is dead, along with 4 other Americans.

The President of Egypt has told Obozo that "the US must change."

The Muzzies have resumed their hue-and-cry for administrative repeal of the 1A.

And--not to forget--Iran is about 90 days from a nuke.

Yah, he's really good.
