"In a televised speech, Hezbollah leader Sheik Hassan Nasrallah said the U.S. must be held accountable for the film, which was produced in the United States. The U.S. government has condemned the film.
"The ones who should be held accountable and boycotted are those who support and protect the producers, namely the U.S. administration," Nasrallah said. He called for protests on Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
He urged protesters to call on their leaders to express their anger too.
"We should not only express our anger at an American embassy here or there. We should tell our rulers in the Arab and Muslim world that it is 'your responsibility in the first place' and since you officially represent the governments and states of the Muslim world you should impose on the United States, Europe and the whole world that our prophet, our Quran and our holy places and honor of our Prophet be respected," he told his followers in a televised speech."

It is worth remembering that candidate Obama declared that his presidency would transform our relationship with the Mideast countries. Candidate Obama derided U.S. arrogance under the Bush administration and blamed Bush (no surprise) for our troubles abroad.

Well It appears that Candidate Obama was right. His presidency did transform our relationship with the Middle East and Islam in general. They now have less respect for us, much more anger, very little fear, and no reason to work with the United States. President Obama is running for re-election mostly on his foriegn policy issues and faulty, disingenuous, economic redistributive socialistic economic policies. It has been well known that his economic policies have not worked and has increased dependency on the government. All that leaves is foriegn policy...oh thats right it doesn't appear that foriegn policy has worked either. My Bad.
