Should Google (YouTube) remove the video (Islam/Mohammed) that supposedly led to anti-US violence?
Should they remove the video as "hate-speech", remove it because of the violent demands of radical muslims or is this protected by our value of free speech and it should be allowed to be made/shown/seen?
What about other videos or internet depictions that mock or criticize religion (just Islam or other religions, as well)…Should they all be treated the same way? How?
no they shouldn't remove it. it is a movie, made from freedom of speech and just because a bunch of religious fanatics don't like it, too bad. if anything, it should be promoted.
I am sorry to say that I disagree with your thoughts. I bet you cannot upload a video against queen of England otherwise even your ip will be blocked by YouTube. To hurt feelings of more than one billion people is against true "freedom of speech" .
ahmed.b In THIS country, we have FREEDOMS and RIGHTS. We do not need to adjust our way of life, words or actions to coddle & cater to the tantrums of ignorant, hateful, radical zealots, who kill for fun. Even a billion of them. Hurt FEELINGS?
How would you feel if a similar film of Jesus was made or his mother or the apostles?I am not free to verbaly abuse my husband
i'm sorry to say but when these people react with violence, their feelings become irrelevant.if they would for just once, act civilized, i'd actually care about their feelings.
I am against both sides in this controversy but especially against fundamentalist and mindless Americams fanning the flames knowing what would happen across the world.And I beg Muslims to be dignified and not commit more crime
@kathryn1000 I feel almost the same as you do. I am a muslim and do not support voilance. I think there can be other organised ways to show sentiments. @nightwork4 There are rare chance that you 1st abuse some1s parent and still one behaves civilize
kathryn1000, there are plenty of videos and shows and parodies and other crap that makes fun of Jesus. I never see thousands of christians burn things and kill people. You know why? Because christianity preaches peace and Islam does not.
Does freedom of speech allow me to insult you or your faith ?if it allows me to do so, which law then protects your freedom of faith ?
Insulting and assaulting are two different things. Insulting does not harm my faith as a christian at all. Telling me I'm stupid, or jesus is a joke or other shit will not make you change anything.
Freedom of Speech is just that free to speak. Unfortunately our freedoms are being taken away for the benefits of people who stone fornicators.
Yes they should remove it. To hurt someone's feelings and beliefs is something out of manners and against true meanings of freedom of speech. It is like I cannot and I should not be allowed to abuse anyone just because I have "freedom of speach".
"To hurt someone's feelings & beliefs...???." You mean, radical Islamist who plot murder & torture and mass killing ...continual blood shed and atrocities? Really, ahmed? Are you defending hateful, ignorant, blood thirsty Muslims? CLARI
Most Muslims are not wicked people.Christians killed many in the Crusades..would Jesus have wished for that?
Freedom of speech does not permit men to abuse their wives or neighbours.It's called abuse.
But the reaction by the Muslims is also too much
@fpherj48 I do not understand the harsh tone of your reply as I JUST expressed my opinion which according to your own so called "freedom of expression" I have right to . Anyhow to correct your misconception about Muslims please compare the ....
fpherj48 >>>>Nothing called radical Islamist.This is an insult to all Muslims even the moderate Muslim.If you do not want the bees to attack you do not attack them and call them radicals.Who gave you the right to insult others in the name
No it should not. Do you know who many videos and parodies are out there that make fun and disgrace other religions. You don't see those people in violent outrage. Radical Islam will find a excuse no matter what.
That is an over simplification.Xtians did much harm inn the past to Islam...with the excuse we wanted Jerusalem to be ours...they killed thousands in the Crusades and memories last.We need to see the point of view of the mainstream Muslims,
Nothing called radical Islam. We as Muslims do believe in Jesus Christ and he is mentioned in our holy book as messenger whose message has been replaced by Islam.However my religion does not allow me to insult or contempt him.
Jerusalem was Jewish then Christian way before the Muslims came in and killed almost anyone. Its unfathomable the ignorance of people. The Crusades were an attempt to regain lost territory. If you are going to be ignorant don't comment.
You have completely bought into the twisted liberal view on the crusades. Yes there where atrocities on both sides, but the Christians did not enter the crusades for no reason, it was a defensive war.
I have not seen the video but YouTube does have terms already. If they keep it on it means they think it is okay. As far as the Muslims being violent some of them seem to use any excuse. Not all of them but enough of them seem to think it is okay to kill people for saying or doing something they do not like. It is like a person insulting Gandhi and having a group of people go on a killing spree. If you don't know who Gandhi is he promoted peace. My point is that I don't think Mohammed would want people to kill in his name. Not that I really know anything about him except what I heard on TV.
Personally I don't think the movie should have been made but I don't think people should kill over it either. Taking the movie down would not help now.
you are absolutely right Mohammed would never want people to kill in his name.We have learned this from his teaching and behavior but the fanatics are found anywhere and there are non-muslims who killed foreigners just for racial reasons.
Read the Koran, Muhammed killed plenty of people who wouldn't convert.
NO! Freedom of expression is essential to progress. If a group of delusional, brainwashed fanatics...acting like spoiled children, gets their way every time they throw a violent tantrum, where is that going to lead?
It's not the film that is making these Muslims act this way. It is their psychotic beliefs, and the indoctrinated sensitivity to their childish, psychotic beliefs.
I have seen many things on the Internet that offends my heritage. Sometimes I get extremely angered at the vile accusations and heartless vitriol, but I still must defend their right to express their views.
There can be no double standard when it comes to freedoms of expression. These violent lunatics simply need to be de-programmed...and grow up!

Sacrilege was intolerable for the Muslims, as it was not the issue of freedom of expression instead it was the question of violence on earth, Geo News reported.Addressing the Ishq-e-Rasool Conference here, the prime minister said that freedom of expression didn’t mean that revered personalities be...

Very rarely do I see a forum thread on Islam. I have not seen an atheist who has started a thread on Islam insulting Mohammed or Allah or just speaking out against them. Christianity and Jesus seem to be the target. I know it is because the US, for example, is considered a...

Your first statement should probably be a definition of Islam: is it what the terrorists, using religion for an excuse for jihad, worship or is it what the more peaceful people worship. Or somewhere in between?

Does Islam support terrorism?Suddenly this question comes in my mind. As a Muslim I know Islam doesn't support terrorism. If anyone read Holy Qur'an and research the life of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh), he can easily understand the real fact of Islam. You can say about Al Qaeda, ISIS who use the name...
