In a Thursday press statement on the controversy caused by the "Innocence of Islam" film, Egypt's Popular Socialist Alliance Party registered its rejection of sectarianism and religious intolerance.

The party also emphasised its support for the public's right to stage peaceful protests.

The leftist party went on to denounce those they described as "sectarianism sheikhs," or Muslim preachers who, it asserted, incited sectarianism between Egypt's Muslim and Christian communities.

"[What they do] is no different from what the producers of this insulting film [denigrating the Prophet Mohamed] did," the party stated.
