Satan is behind all films that insult Islam or Christianity, Bishop Paul of the Egyptian Orthodox Church told an 'Egypt Message of Peace' press conference on Sunday.

The Devil uses human beings to spark sectarian conflict, therefore the battle against sectarianism is a war against the Devil, he claimed.

Blasphemous films aim to promote atheism, he added.

The anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims, provoked angry protests throughout much of the Islamic world earlier this month. The US embassy in Cairo was attacked by angry Muslims and the US ambassador to Libya was killed in an attack on the US consulate in Benghazi.

Dozens of protesters gathered outside the French embassy in Cairo on Friday to condemn the publication of insulting cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed in the French satirical weekly magazine, Charlie Hebdo.

Dont fall in Their trap
I wasn't aware of this "movie" until all the publicity given to it . I saw the trailer and immediately concluded that this is a stupid movie made by stupid people that will be ignored by everyone. Unfortunately there are people with hidden agendas that want to politicise my religion and they managed to create this fuss. DON'T FALL IN THEIR TRAP. Those that try to gain political advantages in the name of my religion will never get my support. They are good at mobilising the illiterate populace. They will not count me in that group and if you are on this website, do not allow them to include you in the millions of sheep they want to lead to intellectual "slaughter".

Literally or figuratively
I believe figuratively is good enough--Satan is behind that film "figuratively." In all fairness, it seems that many are to blame for this film--countless are those who should be shamed. Read "Shame" http://azzasedky.typepad.com/egypt/2012/09/shame.html
