The most recent example is a US-made film called the “Innocence of Muslims,” which reportedly spurred demonstrations in Egypt and Libya that ended with the deaths of the US Ambassador to Libya, J. Christopher Stevens, and three of his consular staff. In Cairo, protesters scaled the walls of the US embassy compound and replaced the US flag with an Islamist one, but no one was hurt.
The two-hour film paints the prophet Muhammad as a pedophile and fraud. The details of the amateurish film's provenance are still being sorted out, but it was reportedly made in America. A YouTube trailer of the film was dubbed into Arabic and portions were later picked up by Egyptian TV stations and discussed in the local media.
