The Jerusalem District Court rejected on Monday an appeal by MK Taleb a-Sanaa (UAL-Ta'al) asking Google to remove the anti-Muslim film Innocence of Muslims from its video sharing website YouTube.

In September, the Jerusalem District Court issued an intermediate order postponing a ruling on the petition by a-Sanaa and other Muslim leaders asking to ban the movie mocking the prophet Muhammad in Israel.

"The movie offended Muslim people's feelings, which is why Google blocked it in different countries in the Arab world," Sanaa said. "There are Muslims in Israel who were just as offended as Muslims in Egypt or Libya, so I think it is necessary to ban it here as well," he added.
