"If, as it claims, the United States believes in freedom to
the extent that it gives its citizens the right to burn the American flag if

deleting them from YouTube?"
Police preventing demonstrators from reaching the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta react to the tear gas dispensed by one of their colleagues. Protests over a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad have now spread to a number of other countries.
shouldn't we rise up and protest a film that denigrates our Holy Prophet? Don't countries
oftentimes protest and revolt for the slightest insult aimed at symbols or slogans

Islamic faith, which is falsified by media in all the Western countries with
the supported of Zionists.

absence, so far, of any statement or announcement by those who classify themselves
as members of the political elite.
to Martin Luther King, "The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those
who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict." I believe we are living
through a time of great moral trial which requires serious, ceaseless work in
order to preserve the prestige of the Islamic religion and the Holy Prophet in
all the parts of the world. Unfortunately, even the denunciations and
condemnations we expected from Muslim Arab leaders have been very late in
coming, or not made at all!
