A panel discusses the anti-Muslim film that has contributed to protests in the Middle East.
Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf, founder and CEO of the Cordoba Initiative says, “The Quran states explicitly that no soul shall be responsible for the sins or the crimes of another.

And we can’t let the Arab Spring be hijacked by the extremists and remember that it’s a good news story – a positive development for the people of the Middle East.”
