Yemeni women took to the streets of Sanaa to protest a film mocking the Prophet Mohammed. Chanting "there is no greater God than God," they called the film "Innocence of Muslims" an insult of the highest order. At the rally, held near the president's home, they also had a challenge for the west. SOUNDBITE: Um Amar saying: "You claim the adoption of the freedom of religion and beliefs and if you are really doing that you should make sure your fools refrain from those insults that undermine relations between nations ". The film which was produced privately in California, has been denounced by the U.S. government. This point has made little difference to many in the Muslim world who see the west and particularly the U.S. as hostile to Islam.
