Nearly 100 Arab protesters in Israel have joined in on the protests at U.S. Embassies around the world today, demonstrating outside the American office in Tel Aviv.

Protesting the American made film “Innocence of Muslims”, the group in Tel Aviv carried signs and chanted slogans, generally in a peaceful manner, condemning the film’s contents which denigrates the Islamic prophet Muhammad.

Ahmed Tibi,  who is an Arab member of Israel’s Knesset (parliament), referred to the film being protested around the world as a “contemptible and despicable film whose intention is to light the fires of hatred on the backdrop of the rising wave of Islamophobia in the West.”

“If the UN does not mobilize to stop this erosion, it will be Armageddon,” said Talab Sana, another Arab member of Israel’s Knesset.

A group known as the Northern Branch of the Islamic movement, which aims to promote Islam among Israeli Arabs, organized and led the protests in Tel Aviv.
