BEIRUT, Sept. 17 (Xinhua) -- Hezbollah chief Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah warned Monday against the broadcasting of the entire anti-Islam movie allegedly produced in the United States, for fear of "very dangerous repercussions," National News Agency reported.
Nasrallah made his remarks during a rally he had called for in the capital Beirut's Dahiyeh southern suburb, protesting against the movie.
"The United States must realize that broadcasting the entire film will have very dangerous repercussions in the world," the Hezbollah chief said.
This was the fifth public appearance of the Hezbollah leader over the past six years.
Nasrallah held the United States responsible for ensuring the halt of the airing of the movie, "Innocence of Muslims," which has sparked outrage and anti-U.S. rallies across Arab and Islamic countries and regions.
He reiterated his demand that the Lebanese government exert efforts on the international community to issue an international resolution that incriminates insults against religions.
