There is a storm brewing around the movie "Innocence of Muslims"
Check out the trailersYouTube to see for yourselves.
Since screening the movie in Egypt and Libya, the director Sam Bacile has gone into hiding.
Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion.
Ambassador Chris Stevens (Libya) was killed on Tuesday night when he and a group of embassy employees went to the consulate to try to evacuate staff as the building came under attack by a mob firing machine guns and rocket propelled grenades.
In Egypt, protesters scaled the walls of the US embassy in Cairo and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner.
"This is a political movie," said Bacile. "The US lost a lot of money and a lot of people in wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, but we're fighting with ideas."
The film claims Muhammad was a fraud. The 14-minute trailer of the movie that reportedly set off the protests, posted on the website YouTube in an original English version and another dubbed into Egyptian Arabic, shows an amateur cast performing a wooden dialogue of insults disguised as revelations about Muhammad, whose obedient followers are presented as a cadre of goons.It depicts Muhammad as a feckless philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse, among other overtly insulting claims that have caused outrage.
So we must tolerate Islam which has no tolerance for criticism?
We must tolerate Islam whilst Islam does not tolerate a different point of view?
We must not offend Islam when Muslims are offended at the slightest criticism of their religion?
Must we bite our tongues in order to co-exist peacefully with an intolerant, rigid, brutal and barbaric religion?
