The-infamous film that allegedly insults and ridicules the Prophet Muhammad-Anti-Muslim video presumed to have been produced by and Egyptian-born Coptic Christian known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, sparked violent protests targeted at Western embassies across the Muslim and Arab world. The video has largely been blamed to have sparked violent protests in Libya that led to the death of Christopher Stevens, American high commission to Libya.

Additionally, this anti- muslim video mocking the prophet Muhammad has put its author and director, Nakoula Basseley Nakoulain the same limelight as Terry Jones and ignited a debate on the First Amendment Right to speech, especially around protection of speech. the the promotion of the film and the film, under the First Amendment, are protected speech, and so is the filmmaker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, aka Sam Bacile. This paper examines the video and explains whether the filmmaker had a First Amendment right to make the film; it offers a vivid legal explanation as to why the filmmaker First Amendment right cannot be violated. Additionally, the paper looks at how the mainstream American media covered the story, how the United States government treated the issues, the filmmaker's interpretation and explains how, assuming that I made the film, I would have handled the alleged uproar. The paper also answers the question of whether the U.S government should arrest and criminally prosecute the maker of the anti-muslim film, ?The Innocence of Muslims?.
