The problem with the earlier resolution, Ms. Radsch said, was that it equated "religious discrimination, which is a real human rights issue, with this vague concept of defamation, not to mention the issue of who decides what constitutes blasphemy or what constitutes defamation."
"The film is an excuse," Ms. Radsch said. "The film did not incite violence. There were intermediaries who used the film as a pretext to manipulate the public and public opinion that has resulted in mass violence. But there's no causal link between the video itself and the violence that has occurred."
