Google, YouTube Refuse To Remove ‘Innocence Of Muslims’ Despite White House Request

'Innocence of Muslims' and Google's decision

Despite growing international unrest stemming in part from the anti-Islamic film Innocence of Muslims, Google, YouTube’s parent company, has denied the White House’s request to remove the film from searches and the video sharing site. Though Google has blocked access to it in some parts of the world, the company has said that the film does not violate the company’s terms of service.

The 14-minute film’s portrayal of Islam’s central figure, Muhammad, has received near-universal damnation, even from members of the cast and crew who claim that they were duped into participating in the film, and were outside any knowledge of its propagandist nature. Muslims across the world have shown outrage over the portrayal, initially believing it to be an official American film production rather than an embarrassing and amateur production financed by a small group of extremists.

The short film is thought to have inspired a number of anti-American demonstrations across the Middle East, including an embassy riot in Libya that claimed the lives of four US citizens.

In light of the fallout, the White House requested that Google reconsider keeping the film available through search engines and on YouTube. Despite the violence caused either directly or indirectly by the controversial film, Google decided that Innocence of Muslims does not violate its terms of service regarding hate speech, reports the New York Times.

The company has temporarily restricted access to the film in Libya, Egypt, and other countries due to the “sensitive situations” caused by the film, reports NY Daily.

“We are passionate about our users so we try to take into account local cultures and needs — which vary dramatically around the world — when developing and implementing our global product policies,” wrote Rachel Whetstone, the company’s senior vice president for communications and public policy.

US authorities are currently questioning the film’s producer, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, to see if his involvement in the film violated conditions of his parole stemming from a previous conviction, reports Reuters. Google’s decision and the White House’s request have sparked a conversation regarding censorship regarding content distributed online.

Do you think that Google should block or remove Innocence of Muslims in light of the violent response worldwide?

    Certainly not.leave to the choice of people that they want to see the movie or not.

    Google should remove Innocence of Muslims.You have no right to criticized others religions belief.Why some peoples are interested to criticized others belief? God and religions stands for belief. If you belief or not belief in religion but you have no right to criticized any religions. You have no right to force others. It should be must avoid to criticized others religions beliefs and it is very necessary for happy peace healthy society. Some peoples like freedom of opinion and writing but it is not right to disrespect others religions belief.

    End of america is started.. now America will suffer by this what he did.. Muslims are not terorrist, and the real terrorist is America and Israel.

  5. Todd Chaffee

    Free speech does not mean an obligation to publish and / or distribute. Shame on Google for refusing to take down hate speech.

  6. The-Riper Hachimi

    they must remove those stupid video , and respect other religion , why do they attack isslam and not christianity or jewdeism? becuz islam is the truth.

  7. Sean Mulrooney

    Thank you Google for not collapsing under world pressure! When we start to crumble under the pressure of the uneducated fanatical masses it will truly be the beginning of the end for us. No one, or thing, is above criticism in a modern free society. Massive displays of protest and violence over a stupid movie trailer only isolate you further from a progressive world.

  8. Todd Chaffee

    What about the pressure from the educated masses? If the video were hate speech supporting for example setting gays on fire, would you still want Google to not "crumble under the pressure"? This is such a clear case of hate speech from both the content and the people involved in making and financing the film. Why would Google stand proud in supporting it? Why not just say "not on our servers, not in our community"? Hate speech should be allowed by law like all speech, but that doesn't mean normal folks (like Google) have an obligation to help spread it. What exactly are you defending here?

  9. Rashid Ocampo

    what if somebody insults your most beloved one, what will you feel? If you treat your religion as mere play, then we Muslims are different. That's why I left Christianity because it is not a good religion, and this is what they are doing now to Islam. Curse you and all those who are behind and made this video.

  10. Zahid Nawaz

    Freedom of speech needs have some check and balances, we cannot allow people to create mass disorder in the world under the banner of freedom of expression. The film (which is poorly produced on any Film standards!) is by no way an academic scrutiny of the Islamic Faith. Hillary Clinton is right to criticise the film please see attached link:- http://www.latimes.com/news/opinion/editorials/la-ed-speech-romney-clinton-innocence-of-muslims-20120915,0,7746352.story.

    Youtube is watched around the World by millions of Muslims and I must enjoyed as well. They now should play their part in maintaining high standards of broadcasting and wins the hearts and minds of millions, even if its not for religious reasons.

    You will also find it of interest that the organisation representing two million Muslims in the UK belonging to the Traditional Sunni (Ahle-Sunnat-wal-Jamaat) belief, Jamaat Ahl e Sunnat (UK & Europe) has issued this statement:-

    JAMAAT AHL E SUNNAT (UK & EUROPE) POSITION STATEMENT.

    “INNOCENCE OF MUSLIMS”: A CHEAP EFFORT TO FULFIL THE DREAM OF A CLASH OF CIVILISATIONS!

    Jamaat Ahl e Sunnat (UK & Europe) condemns in the strongest possible terms any attempts at presetting a distorted image of Islam and the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). We strongly condemn the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims” that has offended ALL Muslims around the World, we demand that this be taken off YouTube and other social media sites.

    We believe Freedom of speech is the core pillar of human rights, however, this ‘freedom’ has to be exercised with caution ensuring that our actions promote understanding, integration, mutual respect and peaceful dialogue. The recent publication of photos of the Duchess of Cambridge is once again a serious wake up call that we cannot allow such breach of privacy and injury to people’s feelings to prevail under the name of ‘absolute freedom’.

    This cheap attempt by the film producer is wholly inappropriate and aimed at causing offence to Muslims which will inevitably damage the fabric of our multi-cultural, democratic society, giving rise to unnecessary violence and clashes between communities and civilisations.
    We strongly condemn the film and express deep disappointment on the American film studios for allowing such a cheap attempt at insulting Muslims throughout the World, knowing well that this would only lead to instability, violence and unfortunate turmoil in many parts of the World.
    The World Community has to act appropriately, quickly, sensibly and make very effort to expose those who seek to offend, insult the world faiths with the aim of creating mass disorder.
    The position of the Jamaat on this issue is:-
    I. Strongly condemns the film: “Innocence of Muslims” as offensive to Muslims World wide and sees this as a VERY cheap attempt at achieving other motives;.

    II. The abusive film should be banned immediately;.

    III. The World community should work towards establishing international standards on accepted forms ‘freedom of speech’;.

    IV. We equally call on Muslims to show restraint in their reactions and to fully exercise their right to protest peacefully, lobbying the media, Government Agencies and Parliamentarians, manifesting the real qualities of the Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him) as a Mercy for All of the Universe.

    V. We see this as an URGENT need to raise awareness to the International Community on the true reality of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) and on the true messages of Islam. To achieve this, we will be engaging with the national and international media and in a programme of conferences and lecturers around the UK. We encourage our Mosques within the UK and Europe to deliver conferences/seminars on the theme ‘Prophet Mohammed – A Prophet of Mercy’.

    This is america. we have the right to criticize anyone we please. we have freedom of speech here.

    What you don't do is kill and rape people, because they think differently than you do. I suppose you don't understand that concept.

  12. Billy Jones

    the freedom of speech is absolute, even when, especially when it is unpopular. Let someone say that you can't say something because it offends them, and the next thing you know, you are gagged for fear of offending someone and having your family raped and murdered in the street, because apparently, that's ok if someone gets offended.

  13. Ryan Warren

    Stop your bitching people. It's what's in your heart that counts.NOT some video.

  14. Amirul Shakir

    That is a gross stereotype. Not all Muslims are like that. Just like I believe not all non-Muslims can act like the people who made this movie just to instil hate and fear in others.

    There ARE Muslims who don't kill and rape, and are just as appalled by 9/11 or the 2012 diplomatic attacks.

    You jerk.

  15. Billy Jones

    Amirul Shakir i wasn't saying all muslims were like that… just the ones that recently raped and killed the american ambassador, the ones that routinely behead people while quoting from your holy book, the ones that say that "everyone who mocks the prophet should be beheaded" as in Australia etc etc etc. one bad apple ruins the whole bunch. I'm sorry to say, there are a lot more than one bad apple in this equation.
    I respect all religions equally, and you can believe whatever you want. I can believe whatever I want, but just because we disagree doesn't mean that you should have the right to tell me what i can or can't believe or can and can't say. I can't tell you what to believe, correct? since I have a different opinion than yours, does that mean i can threaten harm to you, or god forbid, actually harm you? No…. and no one should be able to do the same to me or any other person. Live and let live. If you don't like something that offends you, don't watch it. thank you, and have a great day.
    Believe me… I don't hesitate to point out that christians are screwed up, muslims, jews, mormons, quakers, buddhists, shaolin monks, etc etc… when you see a wrongness with something, should you turn away and ignore it? or should you bring it into the light?

  16. Billy Jones

    if a video can damage a whole community's self respect, their self respect is screwed up to begin with, or… am i simplifying the situation?

  17. Amirul Shakir

    I agree with Google for not putting it down. There have been tonnes of videos mocking other religions, and while it pains me to say it, Muslims should share the same pain other believers have of defending a beloved religion. Proves your faith.

    Though it has no relevance of "because it offends them, and the next thing you know, you are gagged for fear of offending someone and having your family raped and murdered in the street, because apparently, that's ok if someone gets offended."

    That is stupid. As expected from a man blessed with incalculable ignorance.

  18. Billy Jones

    really? tell that to the american ambassador that was raped and killed how relevant it is.

  19. Muhammad Nawaz

    I pray to GOD that punish the people who did this or want to do like this.
    We respect all the humans and prophets are much more respectable then a common man.
    I strongly condemn it.

  20. Mousan Ali

    Billy Jones why not you criticized and disrespect your own religion belief? I understand what do you want in the name freedom. you guys do it with intentionally and purposefully to create hatred about Islam and Muslims .

  21. Billy Jones

    feel free, Mousan. i'm an atheist. Please, attack my belief system.
    I don't mind. we can debate anytime you want. I'd be honored to know more about how the "normal" non radical/extremist muslim sees his religion. Although, as I said in the second paragraph of the post above, i don't hesitate to point out when something is wrong. If your faith can handle that level of scrutiny, please, feel free to tell me anything you wish, but if your faith is so weak that it can't, i suggest you don't talk to me about it. you'll just get upset…

  22. Mousan Ali

    Billy Jones dear I feel always free . you are an atheist , I respect you also. but you have no right to disrespect others religions belief.I always oppose all extremist and terrorist activities. I respect all religions and all religions stands for peace. No religions belief allow to killed any human. One who are extremist or terrorists ,they are not religions lover or human. World is suffering due to this type of peoples and they are very little in number. I think you will get upset! think free be free do positive for peace and unity.http://mousanali.blogspot.in/2012/08/stop-terrorism.html

  23. Billy Jones

    I'm not sure if i'm understanding you. If you are saying that no religious book says to kill humans, then we'll have to agree to disagree. I could send you a list of verses from the hebrew, christian, and muslim books, but what's the point? i can't convince you that you are wrong. you can't convert me. Live and let live. I do have to say that it bothers me that you believe what you said, since, unless my translation is completely off, you are incorrect. have a good day, Mousan.

  24. Mousan Ali

    Billy Jones dear me not wrong as u think. try to understand that today trend is to misuse religions for some peoples interest.one example is here for about Muslims and Islam .
    ISLAM WANTS PEACE AND MUSLIMS ARE NOT TERRORISTS

    Here it is very common idea and easily used by some organisations ,peoples that Muslims are terrorists.It seems to very strange. Some media also regularly trying to established to this fact.If a single Muslim involved with crime or unlawful activity then whole Muslims community should be blamed and targeted. If a non Muslims do any bad it will be crime but if a Muslim do any bad it will be terrorism. If you love your religion then why not respect others religion. Islam never allow any crime or killing any human. One who do that they are not Muslims or human.

    here are some about history what we see actually .
    who started the first world war? Muslims???
    Who started the second world war??? Muslims??
    who killed about 10 millions of aborigines in Australis? Muslims??
    Who send the Nuclear Bombs in Hiroshima & Nagasaki? Muslims??
    Who killed more than 100 millions of Indians in North America? Muslims??
    Who killed more than 50 million Indians in South America? Muslims??
    Who took about 180 millions of African peoples as slaves and 88% of them died and was thrown in Atlantic?? Muslims?? No they weren't Muslims !!!!!
    recently we see 20,000 Muslims killed by Buddhists in Burma
    2002 riots in Gujarat, India,5000 thousand Muslims killed by Hindutva extremists
    now you can see the real terrorism
    have good day dear

  25. Rafizi Razak

    Billy Jones freedom of speech is not to hurting people. So let terrorist get the freedom of bombing… in d name of freedom to react

  26. Ammar Hasan

    So if we criticize Holocaust or if we criticize The Holy Trinity by using the freedom of expression, then it would become a blasphemy and an unforgivable/un-ignorable crime. Wake-up!

  27. Agha Zair Ali

    Hye Billy, in america, if some one disrespect your president or in UK if someone disrespect the queen you guys take strict action against them but when some one talks or disrespect about our (Muslims) most respectful and beloved personality you guys start talking about freedom of speech.. That's bullshit.. There are a lot of examples go and read your law and then talk….

  28. Foaad Ahmad

    haven't you seen what happened to those bastards who tried to be disrespectful to our beloved Prophet Muhammad (salalaho alaehy wasalam). Allah Almighty Himself is the guardian of our prophet's honor. You people claim to be the protector of human rights, respecting others' belief and religion. And what you do, here is the story. And freedom of speech does not mean to utter whatever comes to ones mouth. Or does it?
    And what do you think, is it a joke to make movies like that. Your religion or beliefs might allow you to make movies, clips and other stuff about your religious personalities but its not allowed in Islam. We cant tolerate that. No Muslim can. Oh I see, you are an anthiest. You don't believe anything. Let me tell you what you believe, you are born by your parents. And your have no destiny, just eating, drinking, making money, sleeping with other's wifes and you don't mind if some one sleep with yours or do you? and die one day. Do you see any point of you being here in the world? I don't see any. Am I wrong? did I hurt you? You are a good man.I'm not insulting you rather I respect you. I am just criticizing the code you follow. Not your mistake.
    How do you feel now? Yaa. I know it hurts as it hurts us when your people do things like that.

    Does anyone in the world quote any instance when any or a group of muslims have insulted Jeses or Moses (PBUT) in the name of freedom of expression. Kindly draw a clear line between freedom of expression and spreading hatred. Although the cheaply made video will in no case undermine the greatness of Muhammad PBUH, yet muslims loose their faith if they fail to resist such heinous move.

  31. Muhammad Yahya Siddiqui

    Honestly speaking, people like me who are mostly considered 'people of weak faith' are strongly motivated to react to such situations. For no matter what, the strongest foundation stone of Islam is 'total unconditional love' for the Prophet Muhammad (May Peace be Upon Him). I may not be a very good practicing Muslim, but when it comes to the honor and respect of my Prophet (or other prophets we are told about in Quran, like Jesus or Moses), I CAN NOT sit relaxed. No human being in this world has a right (of freedom of speech) to disrespect and ridicule Prophets of any religion. Those who made this movie are not stupid people, they have a bad design of instigating the second largest religion of the world for 'some carefully thought out purpose'. They knew what was coming and they WANTED it that way. If Google aides them, it makes a team.
    I suggest US should take a serious stand on this. Requesting Google and denying associations will NOT resolve this issue. Some concrete measures need to be taken by the authorities. Protests will continue. And no one knows when people like me join this violent stream. Please DON'T DO such things. PLEASE.

  32. Billy Jones

    If someone mocks you, it doesn't take away your freedom to do something. It just mocks you.
    I personally don't care what you call me or my family. They are just words, of course, slanderous or libelous comments that are not based in fact are illegal, but feel free to call me a faggot or my mom a whore and my dad her pimp… Heck, say I don't know him at all. Since I know the truth, your words can't hurt or bother me.

    Before I make my point, let me give you some material to feed any ad hominem attacks that may follow. I'm not American, Christian, Arab or Muslim. I was never religious or "spiritual" (whatever that means) and I grew up in Greece, a country with a relaxed, moderate Orthodox Christian majority.

    So, here goes:
    Innocence of Muslims is the stupidest and most unnecessarily insulting video I've seen in quite a while. But it does have a right to be out there, just as all the countless South Park and Family Guy episodes that mock Jesus have the right to be out there.

    That having been said, at least Stone, Parker, McFarlane and the Jullands Posten cartoonists used their right to free speech to actually produce some good content or make a statement worth making. "Innocence of Muslims" is plain talentless sub-par crap. It's like that Piss Christ "art" piece of shit. It has nothing to say about nothing. Its artistic merit is absolute zero and it's trying to be edgy by offending for offending's sake. If you 're an American and you make a movie that YOU KNOW will cause a stir in the Muslim world, at least try and make it half-decent. If you don't give a shit about the people you're going to offend, fine. At least show some empathy for the American troops (YOUR countrymen) that serve in the Arab world and whose military service just turned into a living hell because of your movie.

    Does this guy have a right to post such a video on YouTube? OF COURSE HE DOES! WE KNOW HE DOES! The fact that you have the right to be an asshole doesn't mean you have to act on it every single time.

    - You begin with an indirect threat. That's interesting.
    – "You people" – see, the makers of this video are a bunch of amateurs. Youtube/google are only defending freedom of speech, which does not say anything about their opinion of the content of the video. (Other than it not being hainous enough to break their rules.)
    – "It's not allowed in Islam" This video was created in america, not by muslims. I don't see your point.

    And, yes, I'm an atheist. I believe this life is all I have – I embrace my mortal and animal condition. Besides, there are laws and societies to stop people from murder.
    As an atheist, I also believe there is no greater purpose to anyone's existence, and that only us can find meaning in our own existences. So, no, you did not hurt me.

    If something someone said upset you, you believe that he should be forced not to speak again. I believe I should understand why that thing upset me and see what I think about it. That way everyone is free of speech and mind.

  38. Billy Jones

    @The-Riper Frankly, your logic is flawed. you are self-important enough to think that you dictate my freedoms. if my freedom ends where yours begins, then yours ends where mine begins. See? Circular reasoning. I could start raving about how much your laws offend me, but i don't. why? because I see you as having a right to be a complete idiot if you want to be. Shall I dictate to you all the things I find offensive about your world and say that you can no longer do them, while using a buzz word like "blasphemy"? No… I shall not, because you wouldn't change, and it would just piss you off. right? well, guess what? it works both ways.

  39. Billy Jones

    to all: I believe that our problem in communicating is that we come from different worlds. We both think of each others world as a foreign alien place full of horrors we don't ever want to experience. They go against everything we believe in. I can't change your world. You can't change mine. I, personally, do not wish to change your world, but I'd greatly appreciate it if you stayed out of mine. I do urge you to visit America first hand and meet the people yourselves. We are a kind and understanding people. We don't care if someone is atheist, Muslim, Christian, Mormon or even if they believe in the Flying Spaghetti Monster. oh, we may debate those people on the veracity of their beliefs, but we don't try to stop you from believing them. Blasphemy is real in your world… often misused from what i read for people in power to kill anyone that opposes them, but in my world, I don't think I've ever heard the word used to describe something someone has done.
    That being said, I do hope that you will understand that maybe, just maybe, you should quit looking for things to be offended about. If you don't like that fact that someone makes fun of something in a movie, don't watch it.

    Circular reasoning again The-Riper. You can't dictate my freedoms. The Constitution of the United States of America does that. It would be if I told you that eating rice was against my religion, so you can never eat rice. Let's say that I told you that eating any animals or animal products were against my religion… so YOU, a non believer of my faith, could never again eat meat…. Sounds silly and preposterous, doesn't it?

    Well, that's exact

  40. Ammar Hasan

    That is true, but it is an ethical responsibility of people that they should respect others religion and do not insult their sacred bodies. Also criticism should be acceptable but it should not mean to insult others personal attributes or religion.
    For example if someone insults you or you personal attributes or someone you love in public, how would you feel? It is certain that you would feel angry and enraged, similar is the case of insulting someone who is the beloved of 2000 million Muslims, so this should be avoided and should not be done on ethical basis. And international laws should be created for those who insult other religions or the sacred bodies of other religions, because insulting the beloved of millions would lead to nothing but rage and violence.

  41. Billy Jones

    Ammar Hasan Such pretty words, but they still describe a religious tyranny. No thanks. This country was formed to escape that sort of slavery, and I think you'll have a hard time convincing America to live by your rules of ethics, when we don't believe in your ethics, in fact, we find them unethical.

    Muhammad Yahya Siddiqui I respect their freedom to express their point of view. Mine is just as valid, and i have the same freedom to express them, do i not?
    So far, I have been called a half a dozen names or so. Have I responded in the same way? no. I've conducted myself like an adult debating differing viewpoints. It is others that should think before they type if they want to prove anything other than their complete disregard for anyone else's rights but their own.

  43. Ammar Hasan

    This is not something related to my ethics or your ethics, this type of ethics is related to humanity. Whoever is a human, should consider to follow these rules. Insulting a person is no freedom of expression, an insult is an insult and criticism is different than insult. For example, if you burn the flag of USA in USA, you would be called a traitor and would be treated likewise, why is that? Why is that not called the freedom of expression? Similarly, in Israel, if you even criticize the Holocaust, you would almost be awarded a death sentence, why is that not called the freedom of expression? And likewise there are many many more examples which express that freedom of expression does not mean insult.
    Anyway Sir, think as human first, then as a liberal, because humanity with it self brings many bounds to liberalism.
    Thank You :)

    Billy Jones your being horrible just because they believe something you dont. It's okay to say your wrong sometimes its human. But whats not okay is to be mean to people just because they dont think the same way as you. If everyone thought the same life would be boring.

  45. Stephen Bates

    It won't make a difference. I've downloaded it from YouTube and if they do take it down I'll just reupload it and to Vimeo and every File Sharing site I can (although it probably already is) and I'm sure I'm not alone. All religion, not just Islam, comes second to free speech. If you don't like it, tough. We will fight to maintain free speech except, unlike your lot, we won't kill anybody to do it.

  46. Stephen Bates

    I see it on Twitter regularly. Even if they didn't, they just threaten to kill and in some cases actually kill people. In which case you should consider yourself lucky that 'insults' are the worst you get back. People losing their faith is the best thing that could happen in the world.

  47. Stephen Bates

    Foaad Ahmad, you acting like an four year old really won't bother us one bit. You can inslut me, my friends, my familt and anything else you can think of. Apart from the implied threat at the beginning your entire rant is hilarious.

  48. Billy Jones

    You really should come to America. Burning the US flag is a constitutionally protected freedom of expression. Sure, we will call the people that do it idiots. We will question ourselves if they are crazy or not, because most of us love our country, but there is no law about burning a flag, a book, religious or otherwise, but when people do burn books, it does bother us, but it's not like they are burning any books I own, so everyone goes on with their life.

  49. Billy Jones

    I'm in in Israel… But I think it's silly to question the holocaust's existence when their is proof of it. Although, I don't know Israel's laws. I don't know if you do either.
    I truly do recommend you come to visit America. Come with an open mind and open heart. See how we live our lives everyday, and if you don't fall in love with our way of life, you will be tempted to.
    Imagine a place where you can say whatever you want, except when slanderous/libelous… And no one does anything. Heck, even slanderous and libelous…. Still nothing will happen to you.
    You could burn a stack of bibles wrapped in American flags at the fence outside the white house, and nothing will happen to you, as long as you clean up after yourself. That is true freedom, Sir. I do hope one day you can experience it.

  50. Billy Jones

    Oops typo. I'm "not" in Israel. Is what that was supposed to say. Phone autocorrects "not" when I accidentally hit backspace.

  51. Ammar Hasan

    :) you came to the same point, you will do that in love of country, so people who are protesting are doing that in love of their religion. So it is almost the same, and there was a law in US which was overruled by Court but still is very controversial that at any moment they will make it as a law again. And you do not talk about Holocaust?
    I know that common people in US are less concerned about their and other's religion, but on the ethical basis there should be a law about insulting millions of humans.

  52. Ezul Safwan

    f it pork it is alroght..but this is about our prophet,our religion..u still have the right to gibe your opinion..but do not mock our prophet..in the video obbiously show that they mock our prophet..what you would do if i mock your parents??what if i do a video that shows your mom is a prostitute for example…what would you do???what is your reaction???you will say that i do not know your mom and

  53. Sam Watkins

    I don't think it should be censored off the face of the internet, but I strongly feel that it is not appropriate content for youtube.

  54. Miezan D. Laut

    Billy Jones so ur saying if someone wanna mock at our principle our god our beloved prophet our religion…just feel free to do so? just let them do what they want with offending activities?

  55. Miezan D. Laut

    Nakoula originally identified himself to reporters as an Israeli-Jew, using the pseudonym "Sam Bacile", and said that he collected $5 million from Jewish friends to fund the movie.(wikipedia).

    What can kinda fools to waste a lot of money just to make an international-rage-triggering, religion offending video clip…Imagine if they use it for the sake of humanity..like helping the orphans and the poor instead?

  56. Sam Sha

    Billy Jones freedom of speech not means to hurt any specific group intensionally this movie is just made for terrorism through our emotions see , i cant berief u bcz u cant understand ,if u want to understand why we r reacting like this u can go to biggest church's father if u r christian or if u r hindu u can ask to biggest hindu scholar , n if u dont believe any1 u can go to educated ppl n u can search just for ten mints take urself in our shoe n search why we r reacting like this…..

  57. Sam Sha

    ok if this is freedom of speech then then why u r killing ppl in afghan just bcz hey r hitting womens according to them that is freedom of speech so let them do there own freedom of speech…this film n workers n everything r nothing then negativity minds full of …….nothing if u go there life r going not going there lifes r hell …

  58. Sam Sha

    freedom of speech them why youtube has a option to report anything ,ok freedom of speech u know that means freedom of speech means say everything do everything that is true n that dont hurt any specific group or religion .n if u think honestly positivly about our point n see that movie u will defenatly say this is directly hit to muslims emotions bcz we r nothing whtever we have life n positivity just bcz of OUR PROPHET(S.a.w.w) . n if u say we have negativity also this is our own thing…

  59. Billy Jones

    I'm killing people? this is news to me! I haven't left my house except for work for about 2 months.

    to your "hitting people is freedom of speech" comment… I think you need to read the definition of "speech",(1.The expression of or the ability to express thoughts and feelings by articulate sounds.
    2.A person's style of speaking.) then when you are less ignorant. admit, at least to yourself, how wrong you are.

  60. Sam Sha

    no when i said hitting ppl is freedom of speech;? n as u r said u r not killing ppl american official r then same here ppl who r hitting ppl r just few u also can see on video latests that 90% ppl r protesting peacefully as i m the 1 of tham….ya ability to expess then who will judge they ppl have ability to express anything through that movie …will u admit if they ppl hav no ability….

  61. Billy Jones

    Your spelling went to shit there, sam. i have no idea what you are saying.

    but i don't think it matters. you are just spewing nonsense at this point.

  62. Billy Jones

    Your spelling went to shit there, sam. i have no idea what you are saying.

    but i don't think it matters. you are just spewing nonsense at this point.

  63. Billy Jones

    I think it's actually kind of tragic. No one would've ever watched that video, if people hadn't gone crazy about it. So, in short, people are watching the video, because it offends others. the offended have become the advertising for it.

  64. Tarek Mahmoud

    Billy Jones is it fair that America do what it wants and no one can criticize it … is it fair that you criticize other religions by making video showing disrespect to those religions … i think there is no freedom of speech in this thing …. the freedom of speech is giving a speech without showing disrespect to any religion or sex or anything or anyone and finally not all Muslims are good, there is always good people and bad people every where.. some people misunderstand the concept of Islam …. we are not angels

  65. Sam Sha

    then why that counts to u bcz thats wht in ur heart , u said these wording bcz ur mind effect frm the situation that going on around u ya ,so wht happened with u same happened with us…. think about this in positive way not by fighty way..

  66. Sam Sha

    same here brother i didnot use google for 2-3 days n INSHA ALLAH will not use it, will go for any alternative

  67. Sam Sha

    u wont kill anybody bcz ur not living life just passing ur time when that will finish then u will know i didnot live life… u look like educated but u should read ur real educated ppl who know wht is islam n wht is life that if u need respect u must respect others if u dont thats another story..think positivly i know u dont believe anything but we have believe dont see wht u believe just see frm our side positivly wht emotions we have..

  68. Ryan Warren

    Don't presume to know what's in my heart or my mind,or why I gave that original statement.
    Getting angry over one video is ridiculous. Taking a bad religious video and protesting,rioting over it is sheer insanity.Taking religion seriously in the first place and killing people over it is stupidity.
    Like I said before in my original statement: It's what is in your heart that counts.!

  69. Sam Sha

    agree with ur orignal statement , n also agree that its stupidity to kill inocent ppls n we r not agree with ppl who do this they r basically thief who joins protester n do this robbery in banks like this wht u have in ur mind… but see that why they movie maker ppl directly hit muslims n make a cractor directly about our beloved PROPHET(s.a.w.w) if u r educated u can understand they can make movie about muslims muslim history maybe u know or not but they ppl who made that movie they know we will never except that n react they r just peace breaker n nothing than that n i m not saying n non muslim australian guy said this film nothing than nonsense i dont know wht they r trying to show he saw that movie. n u r protecting them u dont know they just trying to enjoy by doing this….

  70. Ryan Warren

    The reality of this film and film maker is that on a scale of 1 to 10(10 being highest) on how much influence the film maker has other then this video,he sits at about 3. This film does not come from any major movie studio or big media company in the United States. As for this film hitting the mainstream and garnering any attention,it should not have made any impact at all. I suspect it only made any impact because somebody on the low end of mainstream media wants to make a name for them-self and broke the story about this film to try to gain some sort of credibility. The best defense against a film like this is to laugh it off and forget it<-> then it will vanish into obscurity where it belongs.
    I have seen worse then this film and in most cases,nothing has come from other such films. I have also seen films poking fun,hatred etc at my beliefs. I do not take any of it seriously and never will. One group or persons point of view reflects nothing towards me.

  71. Sam Sha

    ya on some points u r right but to just leave it is not possible bcz if leave this time next time anyother person do like this again then they will reference to that movie why u didnot stand for them why for us thats the reason there is not option or chance to do this against our PROPHET(S.a.w.w) n we also respect other religions …we do respect then our respected things should be respected or if som1 dont respect its ok but not allow to disrespect

  72. Sam Sha

    freedom of speech u know youtube down on video option there is flag report it n we r repoting that video then why they didnot do this.. just they wanna enjoy the play game of muslims emotions…

  73. Rohit Deb

    may be what ever I m saying is not right but according to me we should not hurt anyone religion, we should respect everyone's religion and yes googel should remove Innocence of Muslims because we don't have the right to criticized anyone religion. If any person hurts u, u might hurt him back but not his religion.

  74. Arnold Savary

    Because youtube judged that the video did not break its policies, and so decided not to supress it. The "report" function only signals the video to Youtube's staff, which decides the measures to take on that video (or absence thereof).

  75. Sam Sha

    but if u say freedom pf speech then let see pornography is not allowed in youtube or any good decent culture or society i m sure u will agree with this bcz it will effect our minds into evil things our child go to bad things same as religious hits effects also minds or heart or hurts this also law in many anti-viruses not religious discussion bcz that effects our hearts mind soul i whould say so no 1 have authority to hurt millions of ppl souls directly without any reason… just dont thing to be fighty just think positivily 5 mints.. about our thoughts…

  76. Arnold Savary

    Again, pornography is against Youtube's policies so they delete it; it's just necessary censorship of a content that is not appropriate for this kind of website, because of its sexual nature. I invite you to read the rules of youtube, and also this wikipedia article : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pornography_by_region about the regions in which pornography is allowed; you might be surprised to see that pornography is legal in many countries.
    For the rest of the message, I'm sorry but I can't understand half of what you're saying. You should try to make an effort, even if english is not your native language.

  77. Sam Sha

    ya i m not english so english is not good ,u r right that that notpolicy of youtube but youtube policy is not final if somthing going rong in youtbe or anyother site or area n thats not against law but if that thing is going rong according to millions of ppls n that hurts then they should change the law or change that thing as u see to kills inocent womens in afghanistan was not illegal but through force n through world corporation they r trying to change this.. so we r not forcing we just have a demanded to stop this totally banned bca it hurts millions of ppl not few ppl….

  78. Alexandria Kidson

    Ok, there's a difference between criticism and acting within the bounds of freedom of speech, and producing a disgusting, violently hateful film that disrespects Islam to its very core. You can support Google in its decision all you want, but the fact of the matter is that this offensive message has caused extreme unrest and resulted in, what was it? 17 deaths? So far? And by leaving this video on YouTube, Google is as good as endorsing its message and encouraging similar behavior.

  79. Ahmed Ye

    Arnold Savary
    The owner of Google is the one who has contributed with his money to make that movie, so it’s nothing to do about freedom dude. Don’t be naive

  80. Ahmed Ye

    Todd Chaffee
    100000% agree with you mate. Guess what? When we are abused by others and get upset we become uneducated but it’s very hard to explain that to someone who looks at it from just one angle, and he calls himself EDUCATED.

  81. Billy Jones

    um… i don't think he even mentioned that, ahmed. who made it isn't the issue.

  82. Billy Jones

    People can spend their money any way they want. it's not your money. why does it bother you so much they didn't give it to orphans? You could have spent the money for your computer on orphans, but you didn't. You wanted a computer.

  83. Ahmed Ye

    Billy Jones
    Sergey Brin is the owner of google and Sam Bacile is the director of that movie who has been interviewed before the trailer comes out and he said “there are 100 Jews people have paid me loads of money to make the movie and few of them are owing the biggest profitable Internet companies” according to my research Sergey Brin is a Jew. So again it’s nothing to do about freedom, it’s just an abuse to Muslims and Guess what? Why do we have the flag button to press when the video is inappropriate and millions around the world have pressed it already, but unfortunately the boat wants to be stuck in middle of the ocean.

  84. Billy Jones

    do you actually search for things to be offended about? if so, i recommend watching 2 girls 1 cup. now that's offensive. or meat spin. funny, but some could say offensive. please, i can save you a lot of trouble. there are so many offensive things in this world, and you know what? meh… who cares? sometimes people just aren't going to agree with you, and they are going to be vocal about it. You don't throw a tantrum like a 4 year old until you get what you want, you are an adult and you accept that you don't always get what you want in life….

  85. Billy Jones

    do you actually search for things to be offended about? if so, i recommend watching 2 girls 1 cup. now that's offensive. or meat spin. funny, but some could say offensive. please, i can save you a lot of trouble. there are so many offensive things in this world, and you know what? meh… who cares? sometimes people just aren't going to agree with you, and they are going to be vocal about it.

  86. Billy Jones

    do you think the film maker knew that if he said jews paid him that it would piss off muslims? i think he did. maybe he did that on purpose? maybe no jews gave him money? maybe that's why he didn't mention any names? ah ha! see? you are being played. he wants you to get mad and spread the word about his film. You are advertising a film for him that is irreverent about your prophet, so … you are to blame for people watching it.

  87. Ahmed Ye

    Billy Jones
    You know what? If it’s my hand; I want him to be interrogated and if he is brave enough he can say who behind his ideas because I don’t think he did on his own. This is something is bigger than him because embassies in some countries have been burned-out WHICH I don’t agree with people reactions. Again that man knows the movie will insult Muslims feeling; but he did it.
    I don’t think someone know what kind of abuse will offend Muslims and he will do on his own, there are 100 Jews people have paid already for this film. It’s all politics and religious abuse not freedom as they are claiming and as they want you believe. Thanks for your sharing

  88. Sam Sha

    Billy Jones as u said jew making thats not the issue there r many issue not only google/youtube war as u said jews played with u us,maybe u dont know reality bcz u r not jew but jews know wht they did , they know how much important this is in our believe to respect our PROPHET(s.a.w.w) n if other dont do respect thats ok but we dont give authority to disrespect of make somthing bad about him, ok change the topic for a sec.. in just general not example see if u go out nude without cloths n i m sure u have family n u respect them surly ,n if som1 knew u respect them n come daily at ur door in nude way is it fair u will get angry bcz he know wht he is doing n u know this is not exceptable…

  89. Billy Jones

    dude, it's acceptable to everyone except muslims. you guys are stuck in the stone-age.
    you say "don't blaspheme the prophet" while the believers of your faith kill christians and others that had nothing to do with the movie.
    "my feelings are hurt, so i'm going to kill random people only tenuously connected to what offended me." is not a modern or rational response to a problem.
    you've got your panties in a wad, and you need to just straighten them out yourself. your religion/belief system isn't the only one in the world, and frankly, in my humble opinion, isn't nearly the best one either. If you want to believe that a purple unicorn crapped out the universe, you have a right to believe it, and i have the right to call you foolish for believing such tripe.

  90. Billy Jones

    you don't know what freedom is then. i pity you. i pity you for so many things. you are pitiful… that's what i'm trying to say.

  91. Sam Sha

    ya thats ur believe that u cant respect others believe thats the level of ur religion oh but forget i will not go for that n ya truth is truth i m agree with ur that line wording that to kill random ppl is not right even it is bad n we also agree with this u r saying this on the base of few ppl on the other hand u didnot see the protest in peacefull way u cant i m one of them n if u go 4 search u will find peacfull protest n i also can understand ur humblness n decenty frm ur profile pic.. n u said about chritians i will not say anything about this just 1 thing thats in pakistan n india chritians even hindus also did protest against that movie n if u dont believe u do nothing just go to any big church around u n just ask the church's father there thats is it right or good that movie is…n whtever u religion except jew u just to to ur religion master of elder n can ask about that….

  92. Billy Jones

    churches and religions are for the weak minded. just the "opium of the masses." the time of the old gods is ended. it is now a time for men.

  93. Sam Sha

    this not only freedom of speech this is breaking n spreading unpeacful atmosphere asd u said up there that jew or that movie maker knows wht they r doing means they play with muslims so if u r educated u should know to play like this with others n specially others feeling believe r heart broker… wht u will say about general heart brokers…

  94. Sam Sha

    ok now thats waste of time to talk with u about religion u dont belive anything so where u come frm n i m sure u will say frm some masses or sceintific prove wht sceince it now running fast but still proves changes u also know that n u have any answer to say how that big universe created how big that still todays science scientists cant imagine how big…

  95. Billy Jones

    how did your god get created? point made. you have no idea either. and your "always has been here" b.s. could work for the universe too. put your head back in the sand. i know more about religion than you would believe…. all of them. and yes, they are all the defensive response of small minds.

  96. Sam Sha

    ok maybe u know more about religion than me n also agree maybe ur mind is not small whtabout that small child in ur pic he has small mind small can u say these things when u were @ that small age.n u said about GOD ALLAH created us so creator is GOD not who have created by some1 u also know the defination of GOD as u know more than me. just say who created this univers these starts these planets sun bigger many times than world we r living.. is this all created by own….see if there is footprint of a man in any way that means som1 walked through that way then that print created so that small foot print created with anyone's action than how u can imagine this huge huge universe huge as we no one still know how much created without any GOD(ALLAH).

  97. Sam Sha

    i m not brainwashed oo!! i dont understand maybe but u dont know nothing didnot answer my any 1 question ….u just talk about u , u have nothing than urself…ha bcz u said its man time n u r only men u know about…

  98. Billy Jones

    there were no questions in your statement. there were no question marks. just rambling.

  99. Sam Sha

    also in ur stament no question marks but i means according to statment discussuion that about univers like that…

  100. Yusuf Abu Sa'dah

    Am a muslim, and I love our prophet Mohammad PEACE BE UPON HIM.
    And this film does not even harm any hair in our body or even his message or biography.
    he is beyond any kind of error or fault or even discussion,

    We love your our prophet.
    you are higher than all of US.

  101. Foaad Ahmad

    Guys. My comment (on top) was in response to the billy Jones for his crap. Sorry to Arnold for not mentioning the name. Its for you Billy. Read it again.
    Arguing with a guy like you is just a waste of time. Whether we are stuck in stone age or our system is best or not, who are you to judge. I feel sorry for you because you are one of those guys who have got a big mouth but know very less.
    Look guys, who we are talking too. Just an atheist, who has got a huge knowledge about all the religions (wao) and does not believe on any of them. Hey, are you a religious scholar? How can you be when you have no religion at all.
    This discussion is about the religion. What are you doing here? Get out of here.

  102. Abu Mukaddas

    Billy Jones ..Please tell me what do you understand by so called "FREEDOM OF SPEECH". Is it spitting to your fellow human, or whatever way you please you can sware on others. So if you mean this, then you do not have any law in USA that can protect you from the harm that one can do by publishing your naked picture publicly or any other way ( e.g by speech, video, any non-physical attack) playing with your self-respect.

  103. Billy Jones

    i followed the great teachings of sun tzu. "know your enemy and know yourself" and "keep your friends close and your enemies closer." So, i studied and read every holy book from the christian bible to what is left of the egyptian book of the dead. why? because i can. No one is going to stone me to death for it here.

    There you go again Foaad. You are telling people what they can say and when they can say it. that doesn't work here.

    and since your comment was pointed toward me, go screw your mother. :) If Allah is the protector as you say, how come he hasn't done anything? only a mob has. sheep, in other words.

    if you insist on seeing allah's hand in all things, read this: http://www.inquisitr.com/334893/anti-us-protestor-dies-of-smoke-inhalation-from-burning-american-flags/?obref=obinsite if there isn't a god, at least there is Karma.

  104. Billy Jones

    "spitting on a human" would not be freedom of speech, because it's not verbal. you are not talking, you are spitting. You don't seem to get the difference. spitting on someone is considered assault and battery if you hit them. but, if for example, you said you that, in your opinion, you considered them to be foul, horrible, disgusting, and fat. that's completely ok. see? words, not actions of a physical nature.
    and sweetheart, if you publish pictures of me naked, it will not harm my self-respect, i'm hung like a wildebeest. I'd even be more popular with the ladies. :) and if you are a man… well, clearly you weren't blessed in the manhood department… i find that hilarious.
    but to answer your question, there are laws to protect people from naked pictures of theirs being posted/published, depending on how the pictures were obtained. But i think you were trying to shame me, and nakedness is nothing to be ashamed of. so, nice try, you fail.

  105. Billy Jones

    I believe this is the best definition of what freedom of speech is: Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

  106. Sam Sha

    Billy i dont want to say anything to u just 1 thing that GOD our Creator is who is greatest of all if u r scientist or know about science u will know scienctist r proving ALLAH'S book HOLY QURAN , u can ask also that person wht is right who is our creator who was doing to prove Holy QURAN's fact right or rong(a.s.t) now he is muslim u also can ask english man or read him who is MOHAMMAD(s.a.w.w) although he was not muslim but he know wht is the lines of respect n where honest ppl go which line should they choose…

  107. Mousan Ali

    Billy Jones one thing I want to say that we are from different religions ,country but we all are from civil society. everybody should have some duties and responsibility to maintain happy peaceful society and world. everything should have limitation and discipline is the most important to us for development and happy peaceful society. we should never allow such things that would be harmful for society. I respect freedom of speech but it should be some limitations for the interest of peaceful society.You never disrespect any others religions belief and never hurt the peoples emotion and this is not fair. one who disrespect and criticized the others religion are not definitely not from civil society. I request not to misuse freedom of speech and do needful for humankind.stop disrespect and stop violation.

  108. Miezan D. Laut

    so let say i manage to get 5-10 million n i make a twice the offending 2-3 hours movie let just call it Innocence of Jewish or Innocence of Coptic Christian…u n many people who r defendng Innocence of Muslim would not mind rite? willu be offended or will u enjoy it too? i just saying i got rights too u know~~

  109. Billy Jones

    have you ever heard of the monty python movie "life of brian"? or the mel brooks movie "history of the world: part 1"? they are already made. i could name dozens of movies like that. everything from jesus being a homosexual, to hooking up with whores, heck, jesus being an alien or time traveler is also standard fiction. I think you really don't understand how big the rock is you live under. You only see what your government wants you to see, because in their mind, you are too weak willed to handle it.

  110. Tarek Mahmoud

    Billy Jones i have one thing i want to tell you , please dont talk about the freedom of speech you cant respect other people so dont talk about anything , i pity you lol thats all what you can say ?

  111. Billy Jones

    lol, there you go limiting the freedom of speech again. that's what you guys do, yeah? "i don't like what you are saying! shut up shut up shut up!!!!! you shouldn't be allowed to say things i don't like! but sure, you should have freedom of speech, as long as I and everyone else approve of it before you say it." what a sad world you live in. and yes. i pity you.

  112. Tarek Mahmoud

    yeah there is limits for the freedom of speech …. when you attack my religion and disrespect it what do you think should i do ? if you discuss about my religion with me and respecting it and my beliefs then i will tell you about my religion and the decision is yours …. the freedom of speech is to talk about what you want but respecting other people and their beliefs and religions ,not to always keep attacking their beliefs and religions ….. by the way i didnt say to you shut up , you started to disrespecting me by saying i pity you , look, who is not allowing others to say their opinion ? and im not sad that you say i pity you , you know why cause am trying to help you so i doesnt mean anything to me …………… with my full respect to your opinion

  113. Billy Jones

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    That is freedom of speech.

    you say you didn't tell me to shut up but you said (and i quote): "dont talk about the freedom of speech you cant respect other people so dont talk about anything" you said don't talk twice. are you really this stupid? i find it hard to believe that. So are you stupid or a liar? which is it? because it has to be one or the other.

  114. Tarek Mahmoud

    Billy Jones i was very angry and thats my fault and im very sry , yeah there is no low abridging the freedom of speech your right but we are talking about human behave and im sry again for say dont talk twice

  115. Billy Jones

    i don't believe christians believe that mohammed was a prophet at all for their religion. if they say it out loud, is that blasphemy? if you say that jesus wasn't the son of god, is that blasphemy? does one religion have more weight than the other? if both or blasphemy to say, then you have no freedom to express your beliefs. if one is blasphemy and the other isn't, then it isn't "all religious freedoms" you care about, only those freedoms as apply to islam. we have a word for that here. It's called hypocricy.

  116. Miezan D. Laut

    yeah im weak.. i live under a rock..of course i live under the rock..buildings are made of some rock afterall..zzz…whatever anyway im glad Islam being popularize in this kinda of way..just look what happen on 9/11 for that USA blame on some muslims n brand them terrorists..but then 34,000 Americans have converted to Islam following the events of September 11. This shows that when people start talking and criticizing about Islam they begin to feel curious about it n want to know bout it. Its like a sunshine after a storm.

  117. Billy Jones

    silly person. you ramble and rant too much. I don't understand half of the words your write, and of the words that i do understand, none of them seem to make sense.
    what scientists? what person? what english man? what proof of any god do you have? you are just rambling, sir. I think you are in a religious frenzy and don't understand that you are not making any sense to a rational person.
    i think you don't understand that people show respect out of fear of reprisal. the civilized world, i believe, is growing more and more tired of bending over backward out of fear of reprisal. it won't be going on much longer.

  118. Billy Jones

    so sam, to you, killing people is a justifiable way to solve your problems. Noted. :)

  119. Billy Jones

    now that's the correct attitude! Thank you Yusuf. Your comment is a breath of fresh air! honestly!
    if you believe in your religion and have faith, nothing else matters. i respect you wholeheartedly in your faith and your belief that people, no matter how wrong, should have the right to say whatever they want.
    although, "above all discussion" is kinda against the point of having a religion, but hey! i'll just consider that as a miscommunication. have a great day, Yusuf. I'm proud of you.

  120. Mousan Ali

    billy jones, lol , u shut up first, first become a human ,your speech proved that you are not a member of civil society, you are nothing but definitely fascist fellow, no need to teach us. you fellow do not understand because you fellow blind ,idiotic in nature, stop nonsense talking.

  121. Billy Jones

    again, "shut up" another offense to the freedom of speech. you sure throw around "fascist" a lot. I find that hilarious. your society is 500 years behind ours, and your words are 40 years behind ours. what does the word "fascist" mean to you? a definition in your own words if you will.
    you guys really don't get what the freedom of speech is, do you?
    just "shut up shut up!!!!!" all someone gets from you if they talk to you online. of course, it's always better than a beheading, but still…. rational discourse with dolphins would be easier, and probably more interesting.

  122. Billy Jones

    yes, miezan. if what they are saying is true, why are you getting upset at truth. if what they are saying is a lie, why get upset when you know it's a lie? see? all this chest beating and rioting is just giving power to the horrible, stupid, cut-rate production that is "the innocence of muslims" because most people who have seen it now, would never have taken the time to see it before all the people that act like animals started killing and raping people.

  123. Billy Jones

    sam, i respect your views and want to hear them, but please, if you can, stop typing in shorthand. you have an amazing grasp of the english language, but some of us can't read your shorthand as easily as you can. I understand and respect your wish to make a point, but honestly, i'm finding it hard to find your point when i can't understand what you are saying. you may continue to type in shorthand if you wish, but i can't guarantee your point will be made as effectively.

  124. Billy Jones

    i think that giving the guy a 3 is pretty nice of you, Ryan. I wish i could get him to give me the 20 minutes of my life back i wasted on watching that crap video.
    btw, ryan, i think your attitude is one to be emulated by the knee-jerk reactionaries that kill, rape, and riot over silly things. the world would be a better place if there were more acceptance like yours.

  125. Billy Jones

    i see. you are saying that your feelings are hurt? am i right? this video has hurt your feelings?
    seriously? suck it up, man. lots of things in life hurt your feelings. it happens. you man up and move on. stop being ruled by your emotions. accept that people don't and won't believe in the same things you do. it won't ever happen. you can't change it. not only that, people that riot and kill because of this fact only demonize your religion and hurt the world-view of islam more than this video ever could.

  126. Billy Jones

    so, you don't want everyone to believe in Allah and Muhammed? …. you realize that could be considered "blasphemy" right?

  127. Mousan Ali

    shut up shut billy stupid, i know your society character,naked billy,shut up. shut up shut up lol lol. go to hell stupid stupid billy bily:P. I do not think that you are a civil lol. you are definitely suffering from psychotic depression. treat yourself is required for you,bloody nonsense.

  128. Billy Jones

    well, aren't you acting like a 4 year old? see… dolphins communicate more lucidly. thank you so much, mousan for validating my point. you argue on my behalf and don't even realize it.

  129. Mousan Ali

    i know u do not understand ,billy, you guys do not know respect others peoples, religions. you guys think that you are super. stop such nonsense talking . shut up billy.disgusting fellow ,same thing repeat , shut up billy, you dont have any common knowledge .

  130. Billy Jones

    "common knowledge" isn't very common, after all. but you are using the phrase "common knowledge" incorrectly.
    i am super. hell, dude, i'm awesome. :) don't you feel the same about yourself? do you have no self-worth at all? or is it just other's self worth that you dispise?

  131. Mousan Ali

    LOL billy enough is enough, you guys very below quality. I think you are not eligible for any discussion,shut up billy, again shut up below quality ,dirty mind fellow.

  132. Ryan Warren

    Sam Sha …it goes like this—-> do you see thousands of jewish people threatening to kill, every time a cemetery of theirs is destroyed? do you see thousands of black people threatening to kill, when some person of their race is attacked?
    all these protests ,with what's written on the signs ,are doing is reinforcing for the world a sad opinion shared by many in the western world.–> the muslim race and religion is extremist.
    I saw the film. it seems to me to be nothing more then somebody's attempt at bad comedy. Really,protesting over this video makes it seem to so many that muslims are intolerant of pretty much everything. You have to step back and look at this as the majority of westerners in the world see it.
    If you give off an image of intolerance and can't poke fun of religion,then all it does is back the western people into a corner where they will always think all muslims are a threat.
    if your prophet were alive here on earth while this protesting and demanding blood was going on,would he then be a vengeful god?
    Protesting and demanding blood in his name sets the tone for many that your god is vengeful.
    It's like the moronic preachers in the deep southern american states who think black people should be hung or that gay people should die. Now their god is the same one I have. Are they trying to tell me that my god is vengeful and full of hate that he would want me to take some other persons life in his name?

    See what I mean by all this?

    Sometimes,you have to pick and choose your battles wisely and know when to let things go.

  133. Billy Jones

    oh come on, mousan… you can't expect me to believe that you can't write better than that. after all those years of british rule, i'd expect more fluent english from you, considering the english ruled you so well that you adopted their language for business transactions.
    try better. that's all i'm saying. do it for the Queen!

  134. Billy Jones

    very well written, Ryan.
    i hope you get your point across. i do not have your skill with words, but that is the point i've been trying to make. I have had no success at all.

  135. Mousan Ali

    great nonsense billy, oh come to me and i will teach you billy lol.I expect so from you because below standard fellow. motherchod freedom of speech.

  136. Billy Jones

    teach me how mousan?
    you want me to come to you? for what?
    are you going to "teach me a lesson" through violence? :) proving my point again, Mousan. thank you. you are the best debater that i could ever hope to be against. you, sir, are a master debater. :)

  137. Yusuf Abu Sa'dah

    Thanks billy for the nice words and I appreciate your respnose and polite words, yes I have faith in our prophet and when I said above discussionI meant it because I do, but sure I do not ask others who follow other faiths to be as I do.

    When you discuss his biography and life events you will surely know how great he was as a leader for the humanity since he was a very wise man and polite with his rivals as his followers.

    I will invite you to read about him and discuss what ever you want, since I will not force you on anything.

    day after day, I gain the faith to respect all other religious rituals even worshiping the mouse or the cow, since respecting others comes before any other relationship becasue we are brothers in humanity.

    one last word our prophet said: "religion is treatment", which means that our religion is based on treating each others and mulsims and other for sure, not only solid prayers and rituals.

    thanks billy
    and I wait any words you might have:)
    resoect
    YUSUF

  138. Billy Jones

    I would love to take time and discuss the Prophet with you soon. Sadly, I will not be able to for a couple of days, as work must take priority. Have a wonderful day, Yusuf. I hope you don't mind me saying this, since i'm not a believer, but may you walk in the path of the Prophet.

  139. Yusuf Abu Sa'dah

    most welcomed billy and contact me please when you are back, we might become friends if you dont mind

  140. Billy Jones

    I could always use more friends. Even if we end up disagreeing about some things, that is no reason not to be friends. I must go now. Have a good one.

  141. Anonymous

    This film and all such blasphemous acts can cause no harm to our beloved Prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H neither its in any way going to lessen our love and respect for Him P.B.U.H or revert us back from our religion! he definitely is the ruler of hearts and conquerer of souls, acts like this cannot change our minds! we know, He was the person who conquered a huge piece of land without shedding a drop of blood! we know him to be the ruler of a massive state who used to sleep on floor! we know him to be the person forgiving all his blood thirsty enemies, we know him to be the muslim commander asking the worriors not to cut the trees , not to kill women children and the old, not to kill the ones asking for mercy and what not? allegations and false blames cannot defame him P.B.U.H! we strongly condemn all such acts and only ask the culprit to be punished and not the innocent! if these things were meant to drag us away from our religion then let me tell all the ones who did this that this event has made our faith even more stronger and forced us to be much staunch supporters and followers of Islam!

  142. Billy Jones

    yup. now, it's a bit libelous, but you can call me names if you want. It doesn't bother me. No rational human being would believe it anyway. I respect your right to say whatever you want/need to. :) See how that works?

  143. Mousan Ali

    billy we know what you want. you want to killed Muslims, you want to destroy Muslims countries. your mind is anti Muslims and Islam . this freedom you want actually. shame shame billy .

  144. Billy Jones

    Crazy talk. I couldn't care less if someone is a Muslim. You are speaking like an extremist. A difference of opinion shouldn't have to have genocide involved.
    That's all it is. I have a differing opinion and so do you. The only difference between me and you is that you think I don't have the right to voice my opinion, but you have every right to voice yours. Correct?
    So, why is your reaction, when I won't shut up, to start thinking of killing off large groups of people for their belief system?

  145. Mousan Ali

    billy do not try to show that you are an honest. it is very clear what freedom you want. I do not care your opinion ,stop it.

  146. Billy Jones

    again… you get to talk, but everyone else should shut up if they have a difference of opinion. :) clearly, you don't know what a hypocrit is. get up. look in a mirror. There's one!

  147. Billy Jones

    but… you've been reduced to name calling like a school yard bully, because you have no further argument. "haha, billy's a doodie-head!" All you can do now is threaten violence and call names, because you can't defend your point. pathetic.

  148. Pujja Sarrah

    when you insult our Prophet Muhammad means you have insulted muslim as a whole, you don't represent America but you refresent your self, self humaliation, you are trash to be burned and disposed, let the world no more dirt like you, hopefully you can die with very painful and pathetic,, believe must happen….

  149. Mousan Ali

    dont teach me billy lol. I know your real face. you are a extremist and anti- Muslims. you can do any thing against Islam and Muslims. see your face first and look in a mirror. you have no logic , only you love anti Islam activities.

  150. Billy Jones

    dude, are you retarded? seriously? when have i said anything at all anti-islam?
    seriously, are you back to making up lies to make a point? i thought you were beyond that.

    oh!!!! you are playing the "racist" card! oh, i see. Because i don't agree with you, then i must be completely anti-islam! it doesn't work that way Mousan.

    nice try though. I just thought you were crazy, but now i see what a stupid attempt it was to twist the argument. My argument is for the freedom of speech in my own country within our own borders. You do your own thing in your country. I don't see why you find it offensive that I can say that I don't think you should tell me what a person that doesn't live in india should or shouldn't be able to say.

  151. Mousan Ali

    hello dude you really mad dear. you never understand simple matter . very unfortunate you are from USA. very unexpected response and language. Just relax dude think about freedom of speech only and what do u want about freedom. what card are you playing dear billy behind freedom? I

  152. Billy Jones

    And then you started ranting nonsense again.
    I am finding it more and more difficult to communicate with you, with your lies and accusations already, but when you start ranting and typing fragments of thought…. Well, communication completely breaks down.

  153. Mousan Ali

    you are an atheist , you like drinking and sex with anyone. you also like freedom of rape and this is your culture and freedom . shame shame for civil society. now you like insult and disrespect others religions beliefs. really very good freedom , thanks your culture and freedom. what a freedom ! you are really disturbing elements of civil society, mr billy .

  154. Billy Jones

    How have I disrespected your beliefs? Oh, I could, but I haven't. Who have I raped? What business is it of yours what I do in my bedroom 32,000 kilometers away?
    You live under the oppressive yoke of oppression. It's so bad that you hate to see others living free to do as they please.
    May I make a suggestion? When you are completely perfect, have no sins or sinful thought, and live exactly by your Quran, then judge me and tell me how I should live. I mean, it's your religion, not mine, but you expect me to follow your beliefs, when you don't do the same? Hypocrisy.

  155. Mousan Ali

    DEAR billy I know the meaning of hypocrisy. why you continuously support the fellow who disrespect Islam. your logic is only freedom and I ask you that is it freedom to insult and disrespect others beloved religions beliefs. we never accept it any how ,understand. please protest against it. we want peace and we also never like to insult others and never promote any violence. avoid hatred and do not insist agitation.do needful for peace and unity for future.

  156. Billy Jones

    seriously dude, grow up. you are a child talking to an adult. you whine and complain, but you don't say anything. i agree that you have a right to act like a child, but how far can communication go when you act that way?
    who is this "we" you are talking about that never promotes violence? who is the we that never insults others? I'm really confused here… because the "we" must not be "you" because you've insulted me quite a few times. I believe you said i'm "#1 terrorist"?
    you are just another liar. bye bye little one. go back and whine about how your feelings were hurt.

  157. Mousan Ali

    Billy Jones very unfortunate and sad that you never understand.SHAME OBAMA , SHAME AMERICA,shame mr billy
    Obama says a film against prophet Mohammad was
    no excuse for an attack on US ambassador
    but
    history says
    …for America
    A pearl harbour was an excuse for hiroshima nagasaki
    nuclear bombing which killed and wounded over 2.25
    lakhs
    Refusal of Taliban Government to hand over a person
    was an excuse for attack on Afghanistan war and
    killing 80,000 people so far
    and
    Not accepting an allegation of chemical and biological
    weapons by Saddam Hussain was an excuse for Iraq
    invasion which left over 1.1 lakh dead and count is
    continuing…http://t.in.com/8slZ

  158. Nabeel Hamoud

    Billy Jones you have the right to speak but not insult. Otherwise, I can say "you're a son of bitch" and claim that as "a freedom of speech". If you don't see the difference between Speaking & Insulting, then u need to return to school.

  159. Billy Jones

    i'm a son of a bitch. you can say that. :) it's freedom of speech.
    btw, the 1970s called. they want their collar back.
    but let's clarify, i could say "in my opinion, Nabeel looks like a child molester." and that would be insulting or freedom of speech? it's actually freedom of speech, because i said it was my opinion and that in my opinion you only "looked" like you diddled little boy's poopers. … now, if i said "Nabeel is a child molester" and there was no proof, that would be libelous…. you can't libel a dead person though. so, anything said about a dead person doesn't apply.
    you guys really need to work on your language skills.

    i have to run now. :) i'm going to go look at unrestricted internet sites and enjoy the freedoms that i have, and you lack.

  160. Billy Jones

    oh! I apologize Nabeel! please forgive me. I just looked up how much money you make at Saudi Oger, and …. no wonder you are wearing such horrible outdated clothing. I'd probably wear rags and hand me downs too if i made that pathetic amount. I was wondering why you had such a scraggly and uneven beard, but now i see, you can't afford a razor.
    seriously, they pay you slave wages. no wonder you are so angry and are so firmly based in your religion. I'd pray all the time too if I was living my life and I was only worth that little bit of money for my time.

  161. Billy Jones

    oh, yeah, Mousan. sooooo dramatic. "the world is Suffering for america :( " You are such a panty waste. Is Mousan a woman's name?
    anyway, i'd still like to know what was in this video that was so untrue. list the things that are lies for me please. you are part of the cult, so you should be about to point out the lies quite easily, right?

  162. Billy Jones

    oh, yeah, Mousan. sooooo dramatic. "the world is Suffering for america :( " You are such a panty waste. Is Mousan a woman's name?
    anyway, i'd still like to know what was in this video that was so untrue. list the things that are lies for me please. you are part of the cult, so you should be about to point out the lies quite easily, right?

  163. Aymaan Ahmed

    "Violence over a stupid movie trailer"?
    seriously, is this what you think this is
    That "stupid movie trailer" is an insult to millions of people around the world
    " When we start to crumble under the pressure of the uneducated fanatical masses it will truly be the beginning of the end for us." – what the hell does that mean? the support and creation of something as vile and profane as this movie trailer is truly the beginning of the end of the human perception of respect and shame.

  164. Aymaan Ahmed

    Muslims take religion a notch more seriously than other people. its not their fault that other videos taunting other religions weren't taken down because the people who believe in those religions did not stand up for what they believe in or are okay of other people making fun of their religion.

  165. Aymaan Ahmed

    Billy Jones
    you? conduct yourself as an adult?..Yeah right.(in case you can't tell, i'm being sarcastic)

  166. Aymaan Ahmed

    Billy Jones
    Sir, you are an ass. A racist and hurtful ass. you have no respect for other people or yourself. I know that you will mostly likely reply with some rant about how you have the right to be an ass. i won't argue with your logic. you do have the right to be an ass, but the question is "should you?". I won't pretend to understand what atheists believe in (or don't believe in for that matter) but i am quite sure that even atheists have some kind of ethical or moral code of conduct. if you do have one, i advise you to abide by it. there is right and wrong in this world and to most people, insulting other people based on their religion, beliefs and values is wrong. Neglecting the notion of right and, good and bad wouldn't make humans that much better than animals.

  167. Aymaan Ahmed

    Billy Jones (in reference to your statement the the universe being created by God and always being there)
    Here is my respone
    the same concept applies to a scientific approach. u can say that the universe started from the Big Bang (but even that is just a theory, there could be various other explanations). Assuming that the Big Bang theory holds true, then we can delve further into the nooks and crannies of cosmology and quantum physics. your next question will be how did the big bang 'go bang' in the first place. maybe its source always existed?, maybe it was created? you can always find an explanation to how it was created but then another question will arise, "how was 'that' created".You can keep rooting all your exponents (questions) and at one point you will get an answer that cannot be rooted. when that time comes, you will have to conclude your venture with the existence of God.

  168. Aymaan Ahmed

    Bitch please, what they say isn't true
    that's why people are pissed
    Why do you think the whole world is outrage? cos we're crazy and illogical?
    your not the only person with the power of rational thought

  169. Aymaan Ahmed

    i agree with what you said
    but just so you know, no Muslim, despite how dumb the are, would ever insult Jesus or Moses because they are also prophets in Islam

  170. Aymaan Ahmed

    Amazing how hard people try to be assholes
    If it means anything to you, you've been a standout, because you have made an unusually terrific effort

  171. Aymaan Ahmed

    Billy Jones
    yes it is, it is fast, simple and efficient. sadly it isn't always permitted in Islam.
    However, when it is (and it is only reserved for the most deepest, darkest shit-hole problems) it is in the name of Muhammad (PBUH) and is done to those who are not believers in 'his' mission'.
    Its called "Jihad" and yes, it is justified. No, that doesn't mean that Muslims are violent or homicidal. it just means that Muslims have the balls to stand up for themselves and what they believe in.

  172. Aymaan Ahmed

    Btw, sorry if I offended anyone (especially @Billy Jones) with my comments, I get kinda hot headed over religious matters (but hey, I'm a teenager, you can't exactly blame me). HAGD everyone, or at least try to. as lots of people said, The prophet Muhammad's (PBUH) reputation and legacy cannot be harmed because none of us Muslims have lost an ounce of faith in him.

  173. Mousan Ali

    BILLY you are really a culprit .you have also no moral value and humanity.shame shame billy

  174. Billy Jones

    The racism card! Poorly played! At no time have I even implied that any race is superior or inferior to any other race…. But doesn't the Quran openly say that blacks are inferior and mock them? That's racism.
    You should invest in a dictionary.

  175. Billy Jones

    Good point. Let me make a counter point.
    A religious person might see a mystery, lightning for example, and dive to the ground seeing it as the hand of god in action, and never question it again.
    While a rational man, will wonder "what is lightning?" And based on his discoveries harness the power of electricity….
    Clearly, you should be happy that all people don't see the unquestionable hand of god in everything.

  176. Billy Jones

    The whole world isn't outraged about this movie. Most people don't care. Others only care because they fear reprisal from people who get into a religious fury and harm others, and what is left is the very small percentage that are actually upset by it.

  177. Billy Jones

    As I'm no Islamic scholar, could you tell me all the "untrue" or "false" things that this video says? I am very curious as to what lies would make killing people who weren't involved in any way justifiable

  178. Billy Jones

    Sucks for them, I guess. It's not coming down obviously, and more and more people each day are watching it since there is such a buzz about it.
    No one would've seen it, but now, Muslims are advertising it.

  179. Billy Jones

    I'm not offended. You have a right to say and believe anything you want. I never said anything different. I hold your beliefs no higher or lower than anyone else's, except my own, of course, and even if we disagree about some things, I think we can agree that one's own opinion/belief should be more important than someone else's.
    I am not here to say that what was said in this video was fact or not. I'm not here to say that Muslims are "evil" as a whole. I'm just saying that in America, under our laws, this is a protected form of expression. It may not be acceptable behavior in another country, but this isn't those countries.
    The idea that someone thinks that any thought or word spoken should be a death sentence for anyone, especially the innocent, does bother me. Doesn't it bother you?

  180. Billy Jones

  181. Mousan Ali

    Like the obscure film is no excuse to attack on US…, So, the freedom of speech and the soil of US should not be misused to wage a religious war on other religions. Nobody in this world has an unlimited freedom but USA which wants to dictate the world, particularly on the Muslim countries.

  182. Billy Jones

    But some Muslims, yourself included, want to dictate what others should do.
    I think your point, whatever it was, just became invalid.

  183. Mousan Ali

    YOUR brain is now invalid and block because you are a blind anti -Muslims. YOU think all Muslims are terrorist s and all Muslims countries also! because you are a sure anti- Muslims culprit.

  184. Billy Jones

    You sure throw a tantrum, Susan. Oh, I mean, "Mousan".
    I guess randomly saying someone is anti Muslim, is easier than listening to a valid point. I'm sorry I had to school you so thoroughly in the art of debate, but you have to admit that in this battle of wits, you came unarmed.

    Billy Jones, there is no need for incorrect information to circulate itself and create an incorrect perception of Islam.
    What you are referring to about the slaughtering of blacks was an isolated incident in which Arab muslims slaughtered black muslims. It was by all means a human error. The Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) said "All people are equal, as equal as the teeth of a comb. There is no claim of merit of an Arab over a non-Arab, or of white over a black person, or of a male over a female. Only God-fearing people merit a preference with God." In the Quran, it says "O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And Allah has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)." In summary, in Islam, 'We' are all 'brothers' (or distant relatives; call it whatever you want to) and thus no one is more superior than than the other.

    It is not a stereotype without truth. Being active on a lot of Islamic propaganda it is quite true. I was like you and Iwas quite liberal until I became a Muslim and thankfully left (sort of).

    What I don't understand about the US policy on the so-called 'Freedom of speech', and Google's as well as youtube's decision on this 'Innocence of Muslims' issue, is that it's all good and well to upload videos insulting Islam and Christianity, Hinduism, buddism, Sikhism etc in the name of Free Speech….but if anyone puts up a video, criticizing (not even insulting, just criticizing) Judaism, all these ANTI-SEMITE red flags go up, the sirens start ringing, and the uploaded video is instantly removed.

    Freedom to insult every nation, every religion, every organisation but Israel, Judaism and Zionism…. my question is why?

    Mousan Ali Islam is the most disgusting load of shit in human history, & this is the reason that you are all as thick as pig shit. Un-inteligent low-life scum..
