Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia calls to end attacks on embassies

Consider the source if it matters and it doesn't Before he was involved in the making of a noxious video that provided an excuse for anti-American riots in the Middle East, and before he was convicted of federal bank fraud, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was arrested on charges relating to the making of angel dust.

Court records reviewed by Danger Room show that Nakoula and a co-defendant were brought before the Los Angeles County Superior Courthouse in Downey, California on April 15, 1997. They were charged with possessing the narcotic’s chemical precursors with “the intent to manufacture phencyclidine,” otherwise known as angel dust or PCP.

The only reason the protests are growing and in more than 20 countries in the middle east and around the world is Islamist extremist have succeeded in keeping this alive. They have succeeded in keeping Osama Bin Laden's vendetta against the west alive. That said, it is time for normal citizen's Muslims included to forget this stupidity and get back to the business of life. It is time to isolate the extremists who will never stop as they have nothing else to do.

Protests Over Film Expand to nearly 20 countries across the Middle East and beyond as Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia calls to end attacks on embassies

Anti-American Protests Over Film Expand to nearly 20 countries across the Middle East and beyond: The anger stretched from North Africa to South Asia and Indonesia and in some cases was surprisingly destructive. In Tunis, an American-run school that was untouched during the revolution nearly two years ago was completely ransacked. In eastern Afghanistan, protesters burned an effigy of President Obama, who had made an outreach to Muslims a thematic pillar of his first year in office.

The State Department confirmed that protesters had penetrated the perimeters of the American Embassies in the Tunisian and Sudanese capitals, and said that 65 embassies or consulates around the world had issued emergency messages about threats of violence, and that those facilities in Islamic countries were curtailing diplomatic activity. The Pentagon said it sent Marines to protect embassies in Yemen and Sudan.

Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia calls to end attacks on embassies: The Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia, the highest religious authority in the kingdom, on Saturday condemned the attacks against diplomatic representations as contrary to Islam after protests that have rocked the Arab and Muslim world. Sheikh Abdulaziz bin Abdullah Al al Sheikh condemned the anti-Islamic film "The innocence of Muslims" which sparked protests and called on governments and international bodies to criminalize insults against the prophets.

"It is forbidden to punish the innocent for the crimes of the guilty or attack those who were given the protection of their lives and their property or public buildings exposed to fire or destruction," said the Grand Mufti in a speech quoted by the SPA news agency. Describing the film as "pathetic" and "criminal," he said attacks against innocent people and diplomats were "as a deformation of the Islamic religion." They "are not accepted by God," he said.

Howday Jim ... This is my first time I seen this video, it's shorter than what I thought (Thank God : ) ... I can see the humour in what folk's would grasp in it, but also see what it portrayz the prophet as, as to why it is easy to inspire I reckon folk's of the faith to retaliate (as you say, being certain group's using this as propaganda I reckon basically to instigate it) ... for one being that it potrayz the prophet in a negative and degrading way, and beside's, the majority (although the xtian believe's that the Nazarene Christ figure is actually not a prophet but God in flesh, while muslim's reckonize Jesus as the 2nd prophet after Moses and before Muhammad, but not the son, etc) of muslim's of faith look at the prophet the same way christian's look at the Jesus prophet, being a prophet of pece and love, etc,. But also even if the movie was not insulting/ degrading of the prophet and honoyred him instaed, it would still be rejected by a muslim of faith, sinple because it "picture's/ portrayz" the prophet, the same would be felt if it was Allah even. But Thanx for the video too here, I just didnt get around to catchin it online yet. Other than that, well ... you kind of know where I stand on alot of this.

Later Guy ....

You know Tom I actually liked it. This is an outtake but you can get the full version on line.

I was just watching an interview of the woman saying she was mortified because they were lied to as to what the low rent movie was about and voices were dubbed in later.

The guy who made it is a convicted crud and personally I would like to know the truth as to why he did this and hold him accountable!

I don't believe it's so much about the film as I do about the conditions over there after the fall of so many dictators and the power vacuum that's left. As you may recall this all started because a certain street vendor couldn't even make a living selling his wares and set himself on fire. That speaks volumes to the conditions pre arab spring. They will continue to blame the U.S. for their problems until they come to the realization that it is their own system that is failing them. I don't think we're helping out by selling them more arms either.

I think it only has to do with the film in that the Islamists are using it to get the people going against the west fanning the flames of Bin Laden's personal vendetta.

You are right about the weapons. We use to have a policy of not selling them weapons so as not to fan the flames now everybody sells everything trying to gain favor disregarding the consequences.

RC I take it back that does seem to be the full version. It was supposed to be but when I looked at it once it was not, I just looked at it again and it was. Hmm!
