Updated: YouTube Blocked In Egypt Over Anti Islam Film For 1 Month
An Egyptian judge ordered YouTube to be blocked carrying the film, which he described as “offensive to Islam and the Prophet (Muhammad).” Update: the court decision has not been forced yet.
The 14-minute trailer for the movie “Innocence of Muslims” spread lies about Prophet Muhammad portraying him as a religious fraud, womanizer and pedophile. It was produced in the United States by an Egyptian-born Christian who’s now a U.S. Citizen.
Google declined requests to remove the video from the website last year, but restricted access to it in certain countries, including Egypt, Libya and Indonesia, because it said the video broke laws in those countries.
