Haman, Extortion, Incitement, Censorship, & Inspiration

Catchy title, isn't it? A few really fascinating links...
Life-of-Rubin finds a movie being made about - basically - Megillas Esther (The Book of Esther). The previews both look pretty good. Something about it reminds me of the Ten Commandments, without the cheesiness.

He also notes a story that should be more reported than it is: A Reuters cameraman inciting people to throw rocks at Israeli vehicles, starting a riot.

BagelBlogger has been censored in Australia on his American-based website by the Danish government about Muslim issues. Interesting... and not a good sign.

R' Max Weiman on BeyondBT regarding thinkers vs. sheep. Great post.
Finally, (via KesherTalk) RedState notes that the recent attempted outing of a supposed closet gay GOP Senator is extortion, whether it's true or not. The person behind the outing threatened to out the Senator unless he voted against Alito, and said he would wait to out him until a politically expedient time - i.e., 3 weeks before the election. That seems pretty clear cut to me, and it's not as if the person behind it is hiding his intentions about this.
