The Muslim world is in an uproar, in Cairo and Libya protests are not letting up. In fact, they are getting more violent. U.S. ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, was killed in the attack and three other U.S. personnel also died in the violence in Benghazi.

The reason: a controversial film titled "Innocence of Muslims”, which portrays the Muslim prophet Muhammad as a womanizer and child molester. Needless to say, it has outraged Muslims worldwide.
But the cast of the film says they had no idea about the content of the film being referring to Prophet Mohammad. They claim the offensive passages as well as references to Islam were dubbed in after filming.
Cindy Lee Garcia, an actress who played a role in the movie, told Gawkershe had no idea the film is going to be a propaganda against Islam and their prophet. The film had the working title Desert Warriors and was supposed to be set thousands of years before Muhammad lived.
"It wasn't based on anything to do with religion, it was just on how things were run in Egypt,”she said. “There wasn't anything about Muhammad or Muslims or anything."
A man, highly believed to be either fake or at least using the pseudonym Sam Bacile, confirmed to Associated Press not only making the film but supporting the content as well. "Islam is a cancer, period," are said to be his words.
The film which according to Bacile cost $5 million to produce, had been on YouTube for two months before it was dubbed by an unidentified person and released to anEgyptian television, creating a rage that has not yet settled.
The quality of the film at best, can be called crude, from plot to dialogues to acting. It seems nothing more than a two-bit piece of propaganda that usually litters the internet with respect to all the religions as well as their apostles and beliefs. It should have been ignored. It didn't deserve any more attention. The fact that it did, and the repercussions it incurred is sad as well as humiliating.
