    Re: Israeli filmmaker in hiding after anti-Islam movie sparks deadly Libya, Egypt pro

    The search for those behind the provocative, anti-Muslim film implicated in violent protests in Egypt and Libya led Wednesday to a California Coptic Christian convicted of financial crimes who acknowledged his role in managing and providing logistics for the production. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, told The Associated Press in an interview outside Los Angeles that he was manager for the company that produced "Innocence of Muslims," which mocked Muslims and the prophet Muhammad and may have caused inflamed mobs that attacked U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya. Nakoula denied he directed the film and said he knew the self-described filmmaker, Sam Bacile. But the cellphone number that AP contacted Tuesday to reach the filmmaker who identified himself as Sam Bacile traced to the same address near Los Angeles where AP found Nakoula. Nakoula denied he had posed as Bacile. During a conversation outside his home, he offered his driver's license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Records checks by the AP subsequently found it and other connections to the Bacile persona.

    Interesting. A poster who fairly regularly posts from an anti-Israeli standpoint, preferring a Jewish source over the Associated Press in Wa. It appears to me that this is because the Israeli source says what you want to believe.

    The people protesting the film grabbed the Ambassador, carried him to a car and rushed to Benghazi Medical Center.

    The Ambassador was there to dedicate some joint venture between Harvard Med School and the Medical Center. mb Stevens had no ID on him. It was 2 AM and it was evidently mass confusion.

    The real joke here is that Muslims are constantly asking us not to judge them all by the actions of a few extremists but the moment one American makes an insulting video it sparks protests against America as a whole. seems to be a double standard.

    As far as the attack on the embassy is concerned, they are fairly certain it was a separate incident. There are plenty of reports saying it was an Al-Qaeda like group that used the protests as a distraction. They think it was in response to a video put out by the current leader of Al-Qaeda.

    Guys an idiot to make the film. There is literally no reason to make this film other than to cause hatred like this we are seeing now. Guy is a ****ing moron. How the hell did he expect more radical Islamist's to respond?

    The film proved itself true. Case closed.
