Protests Get Violent Across the Middle East Over Anti-Muslim Film: Should the Film Have Been Made?

As if the death of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other U.S. officials wasn't enough, violence continues in the Middle East in protest of an American-made, anti-Muslim film that portrays Prophet Mohammed as a womanizer, killer and child molester.

Clashes between protesters and security forces outside the U.S. Embassies in Tunisia, Egypt, Yemen and Sudan have resulted in a handful of deaths so far. Protesters continue to burn U.S. flags and attempt to storm U.S. Embassies across the Middle East.

Do you think the controversial film should have been made in the first place? Or was it a poor move considering the hyper-sensitive relationship between the East and West right now?

    1. It was not an 'anti-Muslim' film. It was a youtube clip critical of Mohammed.

    2. The murders and riots are not anti-film, they are anti-US

    3. The liberal narrative is to blame the movie because if they did not, it would lead them to the obvious conclusion: Obama's foreign policy of bow and scrape generates more violence against Americans.

    Freedom of Speech doesn't mean free speech only when Muslims are happy.

    If it wasn't this video, they'd be acting like animals over something else.

    Yes of course they are guilty, guilty of living in a free country. Perhaps you forgot about our Constitution and the first amendment. I would be willing to bet that that's not the only amendment you don't remember. It is your free speech that allows you to blame others while our friendly Muslim brothers with their religion of peace and love kill and murder through out the world. I’m sorry perhaps you have forgotten who the murdering scum are. Religion of Peace and love

    What doesn't anger the religion of Hate and Murder!

    A movie a cartoon a joke a quote an action an inaction or anything they deem an insult to their prophet or god sends them into a rage.

    What do they teach their children in America? " Muslim children attending mosques and Islamic schools are being taught to hate America, our government, our military personnel, and its non Muslim population." http://www.speroforum.com/a/E...
    To be honest..........This is the very thing my History teacher my Social studies teacher my Sunday school teacher my Preacher and some smart people I've met over the years Taught me or Explained to me or Schooled me and even Preached to me about the spread of Communism and the end times. Since the end of World War Two, the Liberal agenda has spread through our Open Borders our God is no longer allowed in our schools or in public places and UnGodly people have Ruined our Capitalist way of life and has now Attacked our Constitution with OUR OWN GOVERNMENT and corrupted the Back Bone of AMERICA herself.

    After the last four years of them in power, we will be under Sharia Law by the end of the next. Then we will be done and just history OR prophecy cause that's when the GOOD LORD cames to deal with a ONE WORLD OUT OF ORDER.

    NO NO NO, NOT GOD BLESS AMERICA.........

    I am sick and tired of the muslim cry babies... STFU already. These asshats wanted to kill the creators of south park, and a cartoonist in Europe as well.

    Maybe if our government had some balls we would pull everything from the middle east and that means our money too. Kick the UN out, and then just warn all the crazy zealots that the second they leave the middle east or harm a American in another country we will be back and the gloves are off.

    They wont listent ot reason so just cut them off and seperate them from the rest of the world.

    Tell that to the families of the dead. Let me know how that works out for you. We live in a highly volatile world right now and intentionally inciting violence from crazy people is well... crazy in itself! Saddest part is that innocent people were killed and hurt. Sadder if possible is how few of you on Sh here even care. It is almost as though you are supporting the crazy peoples actions against the innocent!

    The same here.
    US has freedom of speech.

    All Islamic countries punish gay men, over 10 islamic countries use Death Penalty as punishment.
    Also, death penalty used for apostasy & blasphemy.
    Do you want their laws in your country?
    They have their laws, we have ours.

    y would someone decided to make a movie on anti-Muslim controversy in the middle of a war whether it's over or not. We still have people living in the Middle East in hostile countries. The film and movie industry has gone too far with this. Look what they done now....so not freedom of speech people....this a hate crime and should be treated as one.

    Should it have been made? No. Should it be banned? No. The solution is to get out of the Middle East and stop subsidizing regimes over there. It never works out, other than for the contractors that is.
