The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Navi Pillay, said in a news Release: “The film is malicious and deliberately provocative and portrays a disgracefully distorted image of Muslims. I fully understand why people wish to protest strongly against it, and it is their right to do so peacefully.” “However, I utterly condemn the killings in Benghazi, and other violent and destructive reactions to the film and urge religious and political leaders to make a major effort to restore calm,” she added.
To Muslims, the movie was made by a jew, with Israel Nationality, duped in Arabic by an Egyptian and showed on no American television but Eqyptian..
To Americans, the US ambassador in Libya wasn’t killed in any protest but a pre-planned attack, claimed by al-Qaeda and Salafi’s already. His injured body was taken to hospital by Libyan locals and was grieved over by many citizen after he died!
To media, you really know how to play with words huh! or u just don’t realize how big of the responsibility u hold. !
I have been pretty thoughtful lately, my thoughts being consumed by this new catastrophe and how media is twisting one news with the interest of people in different countries! where is this all leading? like there wasn’t already enough hatred between these 2 parts of the world, and lack of respect and understanding. i wonder lately what had happened to THE COMPASSION GENE in human population!!
