Navideshahed: Leader of the Lebanese Hezbollah Movement Seyed Hassan Nasrallah called for fresh protests in Lebanon on Monday over a US movie insulting Islam's Prophet Mohammad (PBUH).

In a televised address, Nasrallah asked for nationwide demonstrations to display Muslims' hatred toward the sacrilegious film, saying that the United States must be held accountable for creating strife between Muslims and Christians.

"We call for protests tomorrow in the Southern suburbs (of Beirut) at 5 o'clock," the Hezbollah secretary-general said. "Muslims and Christians must remain vigilant in order to refrain from sliding towards strife. Those responsible for the film, starting with the US, must be held accountable."

The world needed to know Muslims "would not be silent in the face of this insult", he added.

Nasrallah also called for demonstrations around Lebanon, including the Southern coastal town of Tyre on Wednesday and the Northern town of Hermel on Sunday.

Also on Sunday, Head of Hezbollah's Executive Council Sheikh Nabil Qaouk said the US-made film, "Innocence of Muslims", is evidence of Washington's hostility towards Arabs and Muslims.

"American insults against Prophet Mohammad are further evidence of the US aggression toward Arabs and Muslims and humiliation of their nation," Qaouk said.

"All these developments are being orchestrated by US intelligence," he said, adding that the US government was using the excuse of freedom of speech in order to justify the continued broadcast of the film.

Fury about the film tore across the Middle East this week, with protesters attacking US embassies and burning American flags.

The five-million-US dollar movie has been financed by more than 100 Jews and produced by an American-Israeli man.

On Tuesday and after a trailer of the blasphemous movie took people in Egypt to the streets, people in Libya staged similar protest rallies which led to some clashes at the US consulate in the Eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, and Washington claims that its ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three staff members of the US consulate were killed in the clashes at the consulate building.

Following the events at the US consulate in Benghazi, the US evacuated all its diplomats in Libya and several other regional countries, but it then dispatched several warships to the Libyan coasts and deployed hundreds of marines and special forces in the country under the pretext of protecting the life of the Untied States' diplomatic corps in there.
