Chanting “God is Great” and waving the green flags of the Israel Islamic Movement, around 50 protesters gathered outside the US Embassy in Tel Aviv on Thursday, to protest against an anti-Islam film that has inflamed passions across the region.

Islamic Movement spokesman, Attorney Zahi Nujeidat, said Thursday that the protesters came from across Israel to the embassy, to “express our rage about this despicable movie that has harmed the honor of our prophet.”

Nujeidat said he and the protesters did not see the movie as merely the creation of a single individual, rather a direct result of US policy in the Muslim world.

“We are protesting here because US policy, in Iraq, in Afghanistan, is directly responsible for inspiring people to express this hatred towards Muslims and Islam.”
