As i said in an older post, and as radical moderate also showed, it's the fault of Muslims for making so much noise for such a thing, if Muslims make a video of Jesus being just a prophet, running from the cross, i wouldn't go out and burn Egypt embassy, because i would know that it's because their spiritual blindness they are doing that, and they have fallen in Satan lies, if it's too offensive, i could go to a protest but a peaceful protest to a place where the author can see me (not an embassy as if the whole country is the one who made the video), so the makers of this video would know our desagreenment, but more important I WOULD MAKE A COUNTER VIDEO exposing their lies about Jesus and giving good reasons to dismiss their beliefs and accept the Bible. Yet i don't see muslims telling us what part of this video is a lie about Muhammad? and why? are those hadiths jewish hadiths? if so, i must say your "perfect" religion is very polluted by the Jews, it seems Allah just could take care of the quran, but everything else which is also important because without it you can't understand the Quran he just was too tired and let it be corrupted (as they suppose he did with the Torah and Inyil) unbelievable...

I am a christian from pakistan and have a lot of muslim friends. I discussed with my muslim friends about this video. My point of discussion was that the muslims their selves made this movie popular all over the world with their so much unnecessary reaction. Within few days this type of foolish movie becomes disappear in millions of internet movies but now only a few minutes clip is getting millions of views.

At Least now some country to dare to ban Quran. This Muslim world never allow others to sleep well.

I was watching AL Jazeera today. And the commentator where saying that the US needs to stop the TV stations in the US from airing this video.

Only one small problem with this, US TV stations where not showing this stupid movie, it was Egyptian TV that was showing the movie lol.

You do not appease a child that throws themselves on the ground in a temper tantrum.

Add Australia to that list- there were major riots in Sydney yesterday. I believe we need to keep on 'Offending' Muslims with Movies,books and articles on the truth of their Prophet and Islam. Because the Violence will never cease anyway. The world cannot keep on backing down to threats and simply hope it will all go away- the time is coming soon when we will all need to make a stand and defend our Children's futures!
