"Innocence of Muslims"

Salaams -- SO, as insane as these fools who make and post insulting videos about the Prophet (pbuh) may be, the violence in Libya makes me ask ...

In Quran, do we read that followers of prophet Nuh or Musa stormed the buildings of the disbel
ievers when their Prophet was insulted? NO.

Was the punishment of these people the responsibility of Prophets Nuh or Musa? Or was it the responsibility of Allah? ALLAH.

Was the example of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) when he returned to Medina to unleash mass punishment upon those who had insulted him and plotted to kill him? NO

So clearly in this case the "Innocence of the Muslims" in Libya and elsewhere is not as expansive as we might wish. 
All too often, when we hear evil talk, in our response we are not following the dictates of our own religion or the examples of our own Prophets, may peace and blessings be upon them all.
