Sept 15, 2012 – Innocence Of Muslims Movie: Anti-Islam Film On Prophet Muhammad (Mohammed) That Sparked Violence In The Muslim World

Innocence of Muslims movie is a new Prophet Muhammad (Mohammed) movie made by a film maker named Sam Becile that caused some Muslims protester to kill US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens and other American in Libya few days ago. naijagists.com

The alleged anti-Islam movie claims Islam is a lie and that Prophet Mohammed was a pedophile.

Innocence of Muslims movie has been rated as disgusting due to the riot it has caused all over the world.

Since the onset of the violent protest about this very controversial movie on Prophet Mohammed and Islam titled “Innocence of Muslims“, I kept mum on producing any report on it but as at today, I’m compelled to write a report on it after reading the peaceful protest held by Arab Muslims in Israel today.

First we all have to acknowledge what religion is and how it affects our morals.

According to it’s dictionary definition: Religion is:

  • The belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power, esp. a personal God or gods.
  • Details of belief as taught or discussed.
  • A collection of belief systems, cultural systems, and worldviews that relate humanity to spirituality and, sometimes, to moral values.

We should not blame Muslims for supporting their Prophet but the violent movement behind is the point of concern.

Apart from other religion in the world, Christianity & Islam are the majority.

Christians are taught to embrace peace even if something bad is said about Jesus whom they believe is the son of God.

As a Christian, we’re taught to avoid violence at all cost. My bible claims follow peace with all men and holiness without which no man shall see the Lord. Hebrew Chapter 12 verse 14.

If someone tears my bible in front of me, I will challenge the individual however, I will not kill him/her simply because it’s against my believe.

I have so many Muslim friends in Nigeria that are upset about the movie, Innocence of Muslims because of the way it portrayed Islam as a religion of violence. I support the outrage but the only thing I condemn is the violence that is attached to it.

God bless Muslim people in Nigeria and other parts of the world for not allowing violence of this sort.

Correct me if am wrong, unlike Christians who’ll not kill someone for tearing their bible, a radical Muslim might kill anyone who tear or burn any page of the Qu’ran right? Because that is their religious upbringing however some Muslim especially the ones I know very well’ll not engage in this type of behaviour it’s only Islamic fundamentalist that’ll kill others in support of their religion.

Christianity is a religion of peace and on the other hand, most of my Muslim friends in Nigeria are people of peace so that doesn’t portray all Muslims as violent people.

Religion Aside, Let’s Embrace Peace

Whether you’re a Muslim or Christian, let’s all embrace peace, according to an article I just read on this site that forced me to pour out my mind on this controversial subject, we do not need violence to change the world.

Muslim or Christian, we need no VIOLENCE for the outside world to be converted.

I’m not sure if there is anywhere in the Qur’an that justifies killing and violence if someone says something bad about Prophet Muhammad however, killing innocent people all in the name of religion is not just.

LET’S ALL EMBRACE PEACE, IT’S ONLY PEACE THAT WILL CHANGE THIS HURTING WORLD.

WHETHER YOU’RE A MUSLIM OR A CHRISTIAN, WE ALL HAVE A COMMON CREATOR, THE ALMIGHTY GOD, who created the heaven and the earth.

He is not asleep neither does he slumber, he is watching our every deeds whether good or bad.

He will use our deeds on this earth to judge us on the last day.

Let’s keep that in mind

God bless you.

      Brother you can’t tell anybody to keep quiet. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion.
      Beside the writer didn’t say anything bad. He’s an embracer of peace.

      Stop tarnishing images of Muslims worldwide

      Are you Sunni and Shiite?

      Let us show the unbelievers Islam is a religion of peace by our actions

    Muslims in Nigeria especially in the south-west are not radicals, they are good people I support the writer on that. Boko Haram terrorists are not from Nigeria. Boko Haramists are foreign trained terrorists. Peace will reign by God's grace.

    Writer don't tell me Islam is a religion of peace. ISLAM is all about violence and bloodshed. Those guys that killed believe believe all of you Christians are infidels. If they have their way, they will eradicate all of you because that is what Quran teaches them. THEY ARE FOLLOWING KORAN'S TEACHING that is why you see a lot of terrorism and violence in the world today all in the name of THIS TERRIBLE ISLAM. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE BOKO HARAM HAS KILLED IN NIGERIA.

    Now you are telling me some muslim are people of peace. I don't believe it. All muslims have tendencies of being violent. If you want to prove me, tear quran anywhere in Lagos Nigeria, All those wicked muslims will kill you right away.

    TO HELL WITH ISLAM & ANY RELIGION THAT PROMOTES VIOLENCE.

      Hi William, Have u read Quran, pls. read it. Islam = Peace, if anyone killed a man which is equal to killed the whole humanity, this wat Quran teach us. Islam is not allowing terrorism in any form. In the world, if u read the history, u would know who killed and shed the blood of People. check the history :from 1991 to 2001, Americal killed around 8 million people

    If not for His grace after converting to Christianity, my own blood parent would have killed me.

    I believe Islam is a religion of violence and it’s not their fault they’re just following Quaranic teachings.

    Imagine parent killing their children because of mere religion.

    I’m not surprised I have read a lot of article of parent killing their children.

    God please uproot this evil religion. IT’S THE PROBLEM THE WORLD IS HAVING TODAY. IT’S A SATANIC RELIGION

    Thank God for Christ that brought me and you the freedom.

    I’M A WINNER. GOD BLESS BISHOP DAVID OYEDEPO.

    Hmm well everybody has spoken well,everyone has been bestowed with a right to air out your opinions.I only have one thing to say nd that is that : Peace is a virtue inwhich all irrespective of ur religion must uphold for the world to be better place.Peace&Violence r like a Dog&a Cat.Nw is up to you as human being whom was born with a Natural sense of humanity,to decide which one you should embrace either Peace or Violence.But i think a little quote like this may help ‘they r many ways to fight it dosen’t neccessarily mean it must b with a Gun or Matchet’!!!!!!

    I don’t know what to say I think they are fighting for what they know how to do best.

    Islamists are fighters they’ll do anything to defend their religion.

    I’m a muslim and a peace lover.
    Yes it’s in the qu’ran to attack infidels however, I believe it’s morally wrong.

    Let’s embrace peace!

    I will like every muslim to think deeply about their relegion . Since God has given us mind and heart to differentiate btw good and evil.. If Allah is almighty and merciful he won’t ask ordinary men to fight for him. The Almighty God Yaweh, Jehovah, God of peace,and Father of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is watching and will judge every one according to his or her deeds.. He does not encourage christians to fight and kill but He said the battle is His. I urge the muslims reading this right now to question allah and call on him to see if he will answer and call on the God of Abraham Isaac and Jacob and see if He won’t answer you.. All muslims I say Jesus loves u.. Come to Him and be saved.

    i think muslim should allow muhamed to judge his offender same way christian allows Jesus to judge his offender. even the gods worshiper would never kill u bcos u abuse gods of thunder it left for the gods to prove his spiritually

    Koran – Hadith 9:4 “Wherever you find infidels kill them; for whoever kills them shall have reward on the Day of Resurrection.”

    Koran – Hadith 9:50, 57 “No Umma (a member of Muslim community) should be killed for killing a Kafir (an infidel).Whoever changes his Islamic religion, kill him.”

    “Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world.” Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini, Iranian Shiite mullah)

    “the religion of Islam could be above all, so that all areas of life could be guided by Islam, and so that the earth could be cleansed from unbelief” (The Islamic Council in Chechnya)

    “The foremost duty of Islam is to depose the government and society of unbelievers (jahiliyyah) from the leadership of man.” (Sayyid Qutb, Egyptian)

    LOVE FOR ALL HATRED FOR NONE…HITLER A CHRISTIAN LAEDER KILLED 1.2 MILLION JEWS MEANS CHRISTANITY TOLD HIM TO DO? NEVER .. THE SAME WAY . PROPHET MUHAMMAD NEVER ASKED ANYBODY TO KILL EVEN A SINGLE PERSON… THE MEANING OF ISLAM IS PEACE. A DRIVER WHO DOESNT KNOW HOW TO DRIVE AND IF HE SITS ON MERCEDES AND AN ACCIDENT OCCURS WHO SHUD B BLAMED? OBVIOUSLY A DRIVER, THE SAME PRESENT MUSLIMS ACT IS LIKE A DRIVER , NO ONE ASKED ANY MUSLIM TO DO KILLING OR SPREAD HATRED… ITS AN INDIVIDUAL ACT , NEITHER REVEALED NOR PROPHECISED BY PROPHET MUHAMMAD…

    Until this moment,people still call Islam a religion of peace.what a shame.what kind of religion supports the fact that you should take another man,s wife,not only taking kill the husband,what religion supports that a 52 years old should marry a 7 year old?what kind of religion supports looting,capture of innocent children and woman then giving them out for slavery…this is nothing but greed of the highest order under the cover of Allah.I dont know what the prophet mohammed used to blindedthe eyes and brain washed those who followed him and support all his actions.
