DAMASCUS- The Syrian government condemned on Tuesday what it said the US-Zionist "Innocence of Muslims" film which offends Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).
The Government considered, in a statement issued on Tuesday, that the producing, funding and directing of this film is a denounced and shocking act as it provokes the moral and human logic.
Syrian government said that the film constitutes a part of a western project that aims at destroying the nation, harming its values, fragmenting its structure and distorting its heritage to pave the way for eventually eliminating it and dominating its resources.
"The Syrian government condemns this disgusting film and calls upon all countries of the world not to show it in full or partially including on the internet as this constitutes an encroachment on religious, humanitarian and moral values and a flagrant assault against all symbols of humanity," the statement said.
The government called upon the peoples of the Arab and Islamic nation to be cautious and stand together in the face of the Zionist conspiracy against the position of Prophet Mohammad and the holy religions.
The government held those who are responsible for and involved in this "immoral offensive act" regardless of their nationalities and motives legally accountable for the film, adding that no one in the whole world has a moral, religious, cultural or humanitarian justification to do such "a hateful act".
