Innocence of Muslims

Washington, D.C. - September 16, 2012 - President Barak Obama

Despite calls from the White House requesting Google to investigate whether or not the recent Anti-Islam film on YouTube (owned by Google) was in vilolation of terms of user policy, directors for the company refused to take action against the hate video.

Did it get us anywhere?

Google will not remove the YouTube video that has been cited as the spark for demonstrations raging across the Middle East and North Africa, the company announced Friday.

The decision comes following a White House request for the trailer for ‘Innocence of Muslims’ to be reviewed under the company’s policies.

Did that do any good?

The Obama administration was not explicitly asking YouTube to remove the film, but to check if it meets their standards.

"The White House asked YouTube to review the video to see if it was in compliance with their terms of use," Press Secretary Jay Carney said.

Did that do any good?

The company determined that the video was within guidelines.

Here is what they said -

"We work hard to create a community everyone can enjoy and which also enables people to express different opinions," a Google spokeswoman said. "This can be a challenge because what's OK in one country can be offensive elsewhere.  This video -- which is widely available on the Web -- is clearly within our guidelines and so will stay on YouTube.  However, we've restricted access to it in countries where it is illegal such as India and Indonesia as well as in Libya and Egypt given the very sensitive situations in these two countries."

The trailer for "Innocence of Muslims" has been used as a rallying cry by those attacking U.S. embassies and consulates around the world. Several top lawmakers, though, have questioned whether the film -- in the case of the deadly attack on the consulate in Libya -- was used as a cover to execute a pre-planned attack on American officials.

This was not the best way to get the video off of YouTube! In fact, U.S. officials have claimed this was a cover up for something bigger?

Critics accused the Obama administration of putting too much focus on the film itself, and faulted the administration for continuing to condemn it.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, in a ceremony Friday marking the return of the remains of the four Americans killed, again described that video as "senseless" and "unacceptable." But she also called on leaders in those countries to stop the violence.

"The people of Egypt, Libya, Yemen and Tunisia did not trade the tyranny of a dictator for the tyranny of a mob. Reasonable people and responsible leaders in these countries need to do everything they can to restore security and hold accountable those behind these violent acts," she said.

Did that do any good?

Meanwhile, federal probation officials are investigating the California filmmaker linked to the video. He had previously been convicted of financial crimes.

No suprise here - the man was just doing his job, as a lying criminal - probably hired by some really bad guys to cause more hate in the world.

The latest in ongoing attacks against the religion of Islam seem to bring out the very worst of character from both those attacking and those who claim to adhere to the faith of Islam.

Doubtless, any observer would have to admit that both sides of the story are guity of crimes against God, against country and against humanity.

Where will it all lead in the end? Who will have to pay the price for the irreversible damage, mahem and chaos?

Good question...

should not click on ads sponsored by google either. this way when they loose money they will know that the muslims are not supporting inappropriate videos in the name of free speech.

Salamu alaykum Sheikh Yusuf Wallahi I love You in Allah alhemdulillah, but I just want to say something that bothers me the most in this topic about the insults of our dear beloved more than our selves and any one in this world prophet Muhamed salla Allahu alayhi wasalem, I think we muslims promoted and made this video a big success and all other previous insults and pictures as well, in the time of prophet Muhamed (puh) there was poets, insults and even body harm, and most of this things we never knew in owerdays because the sahabs did not publish this sort of things, another thing I want to montion wich we muslims intend to forget is that the prophet Muhamed (puh) has been sent by Allah to all mankind no exeption with a message of peace and love, so why do we say he is our prophet only and we can see a lots of shahadas alhamdulillah in all the world by all mankind, do we realy love him are we realy following his message of peace and love?

Assalaamualikum ,__Yes, agree with bro, yusuf. We all know if people read the Quran and Sunnah with open heart and if Allah Subhantalaah guide him/her, they will come to the fold of Islam. But Majority of Not yet Muslim actually see us (we muslim) and our conduct to perceive about Islam. I would say that each individual muslims is ambassador of Islam and if any Not yet muslim get the repellant effect of Islam by looking our conduct and behaviour, then we are responsible for creating wrong image about Islam. Yesterday I met one New muslim (reverted to Islam last week) in Las Vegas and I enquire the reason of his revert. He explain of first inspiration is due to his fellow muslim calleauge who owned him with his best of conduct/charact or and then he started understanding more about Islam through study of Quaran and Suannh and eventually convince him to accept Islam.__May Allah SubhanTalaah show us the only right way ....__JazzakAll ahuKhair._Tabre z

people want to be muslim, not by seeing the news or tv, they rather read the quran and understand that it is the real truth from Almighty. you can confirm it by reading if you are so curious.
what all you see and hear in the world abt muslim is not the real truth.
by the way nice message to be passed on

To brother Ben adamson, and to all non-muslims who do not yet understand what is the true meaning of Islam,You may just understand the true meaning of Islam when you totally submit yourselves to the oneness of our Lord Allah who created the universe, who created everything including you,who sustains the universe, who provides us all what we need..who listens to our prayers and grants our wishes..who is the all-mighty the powerful, the all knower,the greatest,who knows what is in our hearts,what we reveal and what we conceal,who created adam and eve, all the prophets including Jesus...and if you would try to understand why we are created? and if you would try to read carefully and humbly the Holy Qur\'an, sent by our Lord Allah, with the intention of finding the truth..thence, You may once and for all know and comphrehend well the true meaning of the will of Allah...the Lord of the universe...
