Washington, DC -- The Islamic Counterterrorism Institute (ICI) strongly condemns the creators and publishers of  the so-called "Innocence of Muslims" movie. This wicked work not only is absolutely offensive to the world's Muslim population and all peace-loving citizens of our world, but is also a cause of strife and unrest.

We also strongly condemn the subsequent unprovoked and non-excusable attack on the U.S. embassy in Cairo and the terrorist attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. We call upon the governments of Egypt and Libya to take action and hold accountable the instigators and perpetrators of these savage attacks.

We are sorry for the loss of lives at the U.S. consulate in Benghazi and offer our condolences to the families of the victims wish those injured a speedy recovery.
