Lebanon’s Hezbollah resistance movement says the US-made movie deemed offensive to Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is a true representative of Washington’s hostility toward Arabs and Muslims.


“American insults against the Prophet Mohammad are further evidence of the US aggression toward Arabs and Muslims and the belittling of their nation,” English-language The Daily Star quoted deputy head of Hezbollah's executive council Sheikh Nabil Qaouk as saying on Sunday.

“The height of US hypocrisy is that no one can question the Holocaust without escaping punishment, whereas when the greatest prophet of our nation is insulted, [US Secretary of State Hillary] Clinton considers that America cannot do anything about freedom of expression,” Qaouk added.

He also called on Arab nations to keep in mind the US support for the Israeli occupation of Palestinian lands.

“The Arabs should realize that the nation’s main problem lies in the occupation of Palestine, which is supported and covered by America,” the top Hezbollah official noted.

Qaouk also criticized US President Barack Obama and Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney for “devotion and service to Israel.”

Muslims in Iran, Turkey, Sudan, Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Bangladesh, Indonesia, Malaysia, Kashmir, Pakistan, India, Iraq, Gaza, Morocco, Syria, Kuwait, Nigeria, Kenya, Australia, Britain, the United States, France, Belgium, and some other countries have held many demonstrations to condemn the blasphemous film.

Angry protesters across demand the US government apologize to the Muslim world over the anti-Islam movie.

The Wall Street Journal reported on September 11 that the profane film has been produced by anti-Islam Israeli-American director Sam Bacile.

The report added that, Bacile, a real estate developer, has assumed responsibility for the film, which he said was made thanks to Zionist jews donations totaling USD 5 million.
