"Zionist elements" are to blame for increasing hatred and fear of Islam, MK Taleb a-Sanaa (UAL-Ta'al) said on Thursday, in reaction to rioting over the anti-Islam film Innocence of Muslims.
"This is an abomination and a desecration of God's name," a-Sanaa stated. "Whoever made this is playing with fire."
The UAL-Ta'al MK said whoever made the film does not understand the role Mohammad plays in the individual and collective identity of Muslims.
He added that "Zionist elements" are trying increase Islamophobia "out of political considerations."
