Anti-Islam movie threatens Arab relations with Washington


09:26, September 17, 2012

CAIRO, Sept. 14 (Xinhua) -- Demonstrations in several Arab capitals over the past few days against a U.S.-made movie deemed insulting Islamic Prophet Mohammed put the Arab countries in an embarrassing situation, portending deterioration of their relations with Washington, said analysts.

"These events will badly influence the Arab countries... which have witnessed most furious protests over anti-Islam film," Fakhry Tahtawi, professor of Political Sciences in Cairo University, told Xinhua.

It raises possibilities of the United States' intervention, added Tahtawi, noting "the interference might be military, such as sending marine forces and battleships to Libyan coasts over the killing of four American employees in the U.S. consulate."

On Tuesday, some armed Libyans stormed the U.S. consulate in Libya's eastern city of Benghazi and set ablaze the consulate building, leading to the death of U.S. ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and three other staffers.

The intervention in Egypt might be prominent in exercising pressures to stop the American aids, inciting the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to halt its loans and crippling foreign investments due to security instability justifications, the analyst added.
