Germany Condemns Producers of Anti-Islam Film, Ban them Entry to the State

PNN | Sept 19, 2012

Wednesday 19th September, Germany condemned the anti-Islam film, which mocking the Prophet Mohammad and praised the protests that has sparked across the Islamic world.

Germany’s foreign minister Guido Westerwelle said, “We shouldn’t fall for those who sow the seeds of confrontation and conflict through violence, extremism, intolerance and fundamentalism.” He continued, “German law guarantees freedom of expression but not beyond the point where people feel insulted.”

Westerwelle decried the film as an “anti-Islamic hate video”.

He said authorities would consider whether to ban any screening. The government issued last weekend a ban on the film producer Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and on US pastor Terry Jones entering Germany.

Jones angered Muslims with threats to burn the Koran in 2010 and has lent his support for the film. Some German politicians warned that in forbidding the film to be shown, Germany would be sacrificing its free speech laws and pandering to extremists.

Westerwelle said, “Germany is home to four million Muslims, mostly of Turkish origin.”
