Thrust of argument: In 2012 Graham Peebles wrote 'International law, acting as a guide and aid to clarity of thinking, states there are limits to free speech. Where such expression is clearly based on racial or religious hatred and incites violence, then it is illegal and the perpetrators subject to prosecution'. Direction of resistance / implied resistance: Peebles goes on: 'Unless the filmmakers of Innocence of Muslims are completely naive or plain stupid, they would have known that producing a film in which the Prophet Mohammed is portrayed, as a violent, promiscuous simpleton would inevitably cause offense and would probably result in violent demonstrations. Therefore the film breaches international guidelines on free speech, and should be banned, its makers charged and prosecuted.'

Even in the hardest of cases such as this anti-Islamic film, the old arguments against censorship remain the best.'' Unification: Where does that leave Cohen? In terms of international law?
