"This is the exact opposite of the way the so-called "progressive" elites usually toast the eviscerators of religion in Hollywood and Manhattan." That's because even liberal progressives (or is that progressive liberals?), at heart, know that there really IS qualitative differences between the Western and Muslim worlds. One can be counted on to act like human beings (i.e, they won't kill me for insulting them) and one can be counted on to act like not-very-well-trained attack monkeys (they will mostly kill each other over any perceived insults.)
The "enlightened" who claim a firm grip on the steering wheel of Western civilization see the future through a lens in which man becomes ever more perfectible as outdated religious creeds fade away. And thus the irony. For all the contempt these cosmopolitans show for religion, there is one faith beyond public rebuke. Call it Islamic exceptionalism.

Public Enemy No. 1 right now is the man who made a ridiculously shoddy YouTube video titled "The Innocence of Muslims." This man and his so-called "film" have been blamed with a very broad brush for every riot and protest across the Mideast.
