A film trailer for the anti-Islamic movie The Innocence of Muslims has ignited the Islamic world. Protests over this film have lasted for over 10 days and expanded to more than 30 countries, including parts of Europe. This situation is still worsening.
At first, US government wanted to blame this accident on the film itself. After the killing of the US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stephens, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that the film was "disgusting and reprehensible" but stressed that the US government had nothing to do with this film.
The producer of this film has also been questioned by US police for violations of his parole. However, with the increasing of anti-American protests, the US begins to understand that it cannot simply attribute the protests to The Innocence of Muslims or the guilt of the rioters. This film only lit the fuse of anti-American fury.
Many Americans may wonder, as Clinton said, "How could this happen in a country we helped liberate, in a city we helped save from destruction?" The US has helped some countries to overthrow old rulers and establish new regimes in the Arab Spring. However, why are these countries the ones that are reacting the most violently?
