you had clear statement about couple days ago. appreciate that. Ordinary
people the United States, like ordinary people here, are against incitement. dont know who
benefits from this incitement. This against all tenets Islam which, you know, the religion does not
call for this. But anyway, need united condemn these acts both sides. Incitement
doesnt serve anyone. Freedom speech, which all want, when used for incitement works against
all people. you said Mohamed, have repeatedly, bas the President and other officials our
government, deplored not only the content this stupid, very offensive film, but also intentional
efforts denigrate the religious beliefs others. This runs counter American history and the
Constitution. But weve made clear that violent attacks are never justified any religion /.But we-:ve exercise more self-discipline and also governments
must clear rejecting any kind offensive speech and stand for our values. That has the
clear line drawn, because otherwise well vicious downward circle against everyone who has
ever felt offended, particularly the Internet, where you can find anything deeply offensive. think
the double message deploring the content such offensive film any kind statement
content really appropriate. Equally, think its appropriate say cant return offensive speech
with violence. Thats the message that has communicated. Amr: course, that what are doing. Those coincide. They are looking for this kind
.reaction. Its playing into their hands. think thats right. Anytime this happens, theres someone who hopes profit from i_._
