Judge bans film ‘Innocence of Muslims’ in Lebanon
Far than we could imagine, the controversial video about Muhammad, “The Innocence of Muslims”, continues to talk: Now is that a Lebanese judge banned the film is transmitted by any means, threatening heavy fines who violate his order.
The decision of this court, which is reviewed by Portaltic, would have occurred after he saw the controversial recording of that before you have discussed here , and consider that there are scenes that could be offensive to Muslims.
So YouTube has demanded, they do not block “The Innocence of Muslims” in Lebanon, while it has instructed the Ministry of Interior of the country, and Internet providers, not to allow the controversial video to be seen in that country.
What if YouTube or any Internet provider refuses to censor the video? Then must then assume the fine of one million U.S. dollars to set the judge, that is over 750,000 euros.
Have to wait to see if this decision is copied by other Arab countries, where we have seen that movie about Muhammad caused violent protests … In addition, we are waiting to see if YouTube will comply with the ban but is against their rules censorship as you said at the request of the White House to withdraw the video … Will you dare to challenge the authorities in Lebanon and pay the fine?
