Former President Bill Clinton says the followers of Islam shouldn't resort to violence when they hear their faith challenged in an increasingly diverse and Internet-connected world.

Clinton tells CBS "you cannot live in a shame-based world. You won't make it in the 21st century."

He says in an interview broadcast Tuesday the United States wasn't "disrespecting Islam" by declining to censor a film trailer that, quote, "nobody in authority knew anything about."

Clinton says the world has learned the hard way that people must be allowed in a free setting to say and do things that others might find abhorrent. He adds, quote, "you can't react every time you're insulted."

Video clips of the movie appeared this month, sparking riots in Libya, Yemen, Pakistan and much of the Islamic world.
