Hezbollah Chief Hassan Nasrallah (center) wants Islamic ridicule outlawed in the U.S.
At behest of Hezbollah Chief Hassan Nasrallah, tens of thousands of protesters have gathered in Beirut, Lebanon in protest of the anti-Islamic film that is alleged to have sparked massive unrest throughout the Mideast.
According to RT, many of the protesters have adorned themselves with green and yellow headbands bearing the words “At Your Service God’s Prophet” to signify membership to Hezbollah.
“America, hear us – don’t insult our Prophet,” the protesters have been heard chanting.
“Prophet of God, we offer ourselves, our blood and our kin for the sake of your dignity and honor,” Reuters quoted Nasrallah during a rare address to the protest crowd.
The Hezbollah leader is reportedly calling for the government of the United States to make it a criminal offense to ridicule the Islamic prophet in the public sphere and is calling for punishment against those involved in the production of “Innocence of Muslims.”
“The US should know the film has dangerous repercussions,” Nasrallah said, according to Press-TV.
