Outrage over a controversial film about Islam which depicts the Prophet Mohammad in a degrading manner is said to be the reason that two American embassies were attacked on Tuesday resulting in the deaths of at least four Americans.
The outrage is centered on the film “Innocence of Muslims” and is said to have led to the most recent series of violent acts against American installations in the volatile Middle East region.
The film was created by Israeli filmmaker Sam Bacile and promoted by Terry Jones, the Florida pastor who caused outrage throughout the Muslim world when he declared he would burn the Koran as a protest of Islam in 2010.
The film depicts the Prophet Mohammad as a womanizing goon whose followers are mindless thugs. It also shows the Prophet in compromising sexual positions and offers insults to Islam as punch lines.

Those depictions, coupled with the fact that Muslims find it extremely offensive to depict the prophet in any form, ignited an already flammable base of Islamic extremists.
Bacile is reportedly already in hiding and anticipated the backlash that his film would cause. The California based filmmaker, during a phone call from an undisclosed location, told reporters that Islam is a cancer and that its flawed principals need to be exposed.
