Sam Bacile Mohammad Video Sparks Violence in Middle East; U.S. Ambassador Killed in Libya

by at . Comments

An anti-Islamic video recently posted to YouTube has sparked major outcry, protests and even fatal violence in the Greater Middle East this week.

The U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed along with three staff members in an attack against the U.S. Consolate in Benghazi.

The video in question is a nearly 14-minute-long trailer (below) for a film produced by Sam Bacile which critiques the life of the Prophet Mohammad.

Bacile, according to the Wall Street Journal, is an Israeli-American real estate developer living in California; he made the film to condemn Islam.

He has been quoted as saying “Islam is a cancer” and has gone into hiding following the protests and demonstrations this week for obvious reasons.

Protests also occurred in Cairo, Egypt, where protestors scaled the U.S. embassy walls and replaced the U.S. flag with a flag depicting the Islamic faith.

In Afghanistan, the government even blocked YouTube for a period of time in an apparent attempt to prevent outrage and violent protests from spreading.

Bacile uploaded the trailer two months ago, but it only went viral yesterday.

Jones, a Florida pastor, called the Bacile film an “American production, not designed to attack Muslims but to show the destructive ideology of Islam.”

Jones also declared Tuesday, the 11th anniversary of the September 11 attacks on the United States, to be “International Judge Mohammad Day.”

as i am a muslim and i am proud to be a muslim...i would say that why are they targeting anyone's religion..they are completely wrong and this is disgusting whatever they are doing..they will burn in hell..and God will never forgive them...a sensible person will definitely against them...they are getting angry that why there is so much population of muslims in this world...we muslims haven't targeted anyone's religion so why are they doing this..but ya we are waiting for that day to come when they will burn in hell and will be apologising for their mistakes...shame on you..

The Muslim reaction is sad. I mean...think of the comments and nastiness that have been hurled at Christians...even Jewish folks..yet you don't see THEM killing a Muslim nation's Ambassador to the U.S., torching a Muslim country's embassy property or burning their flag--chanting death to the people of their nations. You're way outta line, folks! No way to win in the court of public opinion! This is crazy....settle it down!
