Tripoli, Libya - Dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip have burned American flags and chanted “Death to America,” protesting an American film that mocks the Muslim Prophet Muhammad.

The protest Wednesday in Gaza City was sponsored by supporters of the Popular Resistance Committees, a militant group aligned with the ruling Hamas movement.

Some protesters carried swords, axes and black flags. They also used knives to cut posters of Morris Sadek, the Egyptian-born Christian who has promoted the film.

They chanted, “Shame on everyone who insults the prophet.”

Hamas, the larger militant group that governs Gaza, also condemned the film.

Its religious affairs minister, Ismail Radwan, called it an “insult to the millions of Muslims all over the world.”

You know, I'm not sure if making such a film is the smartest idea, however I can certainly sympathize with the filmaker, people are totally fed up with these islamists for making our planet a far more dangerous place than it ever was.

If they expressed their rage toward the filmmaker, I might understand. But the rage at the United States government together with the violence and the attacks that are happening around the world just broadcasts what these people really are. Subhuman savages, just looking for an excuse to commit murder, destruction, and mayhem, all designed to dominate the world through terror. There is no political or diplomatic answer to this. Just השכם והרגו. The best radical islamist is a dead one. Will Obama and his co-conspirators recognize this? Or will they continue to shove money at them, provide them with military assistance, and "humanitarian aid"?

I've just attempted to view the 12 minute excerpt of the film available on the internet. I say 'attempted' not because it failed to play, but because I couldn't bear to watch/listen to more than one or two minutes. Those first few minutes of the film are crass, vile, disgusting and borderline-pornographic. They have no educational value to adults, and absolutely are inappropriate for children. I'm agitated and maybe slightly traumatized by the experience. While I don't think I have a tevih to mahn the producers in besdin, I certainly am carrying one angry hakpada and taromet against them for putting out such a film in reshut harabbim with a claim that it was kosher/positive. It is evil and sick.

I hope this warning will protect you all from falling in the trap I just did.

Seriously? And you don't think that this film maker is making it more dangerous? Do you wave a red flag in front of a bull?

Such a film could never be released in their country. Their country has controls and doesn't allow the freedoms that America does. They hold the country responsible for the individual. They understand their culture not ours. So before you condemn them for hated all of America why not try to understand the reasoning behind it? Are they right? No, but they don't understand better. Was Sam Imbecile right? No but unfortunately in this country he had the right to do it even though he put ALL of us in danger by doing so. Did he think for one minute what might happen to others because of his stupid film?????

It is all telling that you have only negative things to say against the Muslims and not the film maker. Who instigating the violence, was it really the Muslims this time? Would you not respond the same way if the film was made by Muslims and the subject was "Moshe Rabeinu" or "Eliyahu Hanovi"?

For those of you falling prey to the excuses put out for the violence, they have just announced that these attacks have been pre-coordinated, were sophisticated and pre-planned, and were not a grassroots outrage over videos . It was as 'spontaneous' as the Temple Mount Riots, which were planned well in advance, though the media portrayed it as a backlash to Ariel Sharon's touring the Temple Mount.

That being said, the Arabs continually vilify us with stories about blood in matzah and ritual murder in movies. These are shown across the Arab world; they portray Jewish doctors as inventing AIDS and giving cancer to Arabs over and over again in movies and books.So when it comes to outrageous movies, they take the cake. So all this righteous indignation is lost on me.

All that aside, did you see the photo of that poor Ambassador being dragged, half-naked, through the streets? Are you really excusing these people? Please do not defend these horrendous murders, because that is exactly what you are doing, and that is more despicable than anything.

Thanks for the warning. I had no intention of looking at the clip anyway. My problem here is simple. The American Embassies or government had nothing whatsoever to do with the production of the film. Why are these jungle savages aiming their rage at them? This, like many other events, are just excuses for violence. These creatures are stuck in their savagery, and any provocation legitimizes all for them. Poor things are angered by something. No, they do not have an anger management problem. They suffer from a subhuman character trait. They prey violently on anything. Israel and United States (by virtue of supporting Israel) are in their crosshairs all the time. Review history. Whenever there is an excuse, here come the bombs, molotov cocktails, the protests, the lynchings, the violence. They have never asked to meet and resolve an issue. United States needs to recognize this. I'm no secret fan of disgusting films. But let's call a spade a spade. This is just an opportunity, and not one of these barbarians will miss it. Bombs away. Do any of them remember the excuse of the day?

"Do you wave a red flag in front of a bull?”, I guess you're implying that they're in fact bulls and not humans, so we aren't so far apart.

I cannot believe you have the chutzpah to insinuate that there is justification for violence and murder! Cultures that do not respect the life of another have no place in humanity. As we have seen and recognized many times, their violence is not about the film, cartoons, or other events. Those are only excuses. Proof? The violence is directed at those who have nothing to do with the "crime". The filmmaker has poor taste, to say the least. But to even fathom to excuse their savagery and barbaric behavior? Sympathy? What possesses you? Yes, there is lots of negative to say about Muslims. Most of all is their frank departure from civility. They are offended. Big deal. Boycott the film! But bombing, murder, violence in the name of justice? You must be smoking something really good! Or is this the Obama - Liberal - PC garbage you usually froth?
