Nakoula Basseley Nakoula: Anti-Islam "Innocence of Muslims" Filmmaker Revealed!

by at . Comments

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (also known as Sam Bacile) has been revealed as the creator of the anti-Muslim film that has contributed to violent protests in the Middle East.

"Innocence of Muslims", a low-budget movie filmed this year, has been blamed at least in part for the recent political and social unrest in the already volatile region.

Here's the New York Daily News' photo of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula (a.k.a. Sam Bacile) on the set of Innocence of Muslims with actress Anna Gurji ...

Nakoula, who resides in Cerritos, Calif., is believed to have gotten considerable financial backing for the now-infamous movie from strident anti-Islam organizations.

The film triggered violence in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Israel, Palestinian territories and Libya, where Ambassador Chris Stevens was killed.

Federal investigators questioned - but later released - Nakoula, who is on probation for a check-kiting scheme. The 55-year-old was not arrested by authorities.

The Egyptian-born filmmaker has since gone into hiding, according to The AP.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denounced the video as "disgusting and reprehensible" last week but defended the right of American citizens to express their opinions.

Majority of muslims are moderate, peaceful and tolerant.We believe that activities of a tiny minority of extremists are against the teaching of Islam, so we condemn their acts.Ironcally every now and then someone in the west surfaces with highly objectionable and incorret material ridiculing islam and muslims triggering protests through out the muslim world.For global peace we need to condemn such acts whoever commits anywhere in the world and should not defend such crimes under the cover of "freedom of expression".

My Friend Lobo, havent seen yr post, hope you are well. Just wanted to bring forward one point o yours that Man today has thrown out the barbaric laws of the religion. I will refrain from speaking for any other scripture and will focus on only Quran. If yo come across any barbaric law in Quran please donot hesitate to bring it forward. It will be my pleasure to try to make you understand the reason behind that law and its implementation is benificial for mankind. Hv a great day.

My friend Lobo, Very civilized way of handling it but in reality it is not so. May be you have the tolerance of going and reporting to the police but trust me majority will take justice in his hand. Its human nature. H/e if you see no response from the police then what would you do ????? . Has the government taken any such action to punish the producer of this film. But that dosent give any muslim a reason to kill the innocent american ambassadors. We need to respect others faith especially when Islam is the 2nd largest one and the fastest growing one. Take care.

TAN all religions has some barbaric passages written many centuries ago. The KEY is to evolve. Murder and stonings are NOT civilized nor acceptable in modern society. In the Bible people use the GOOD that is written and throw out the outdated savage behavior. Most religions have gone through many changes and one should NEVER take a book written centuries ago, literally. Respectfully, that includes Muslims. It is good to see you write that the killing of the US Ambass is condemned.As it should be. Just as any disrespect towards a religion and/or religious leader should be condemned. But no one has the right to kill someone for their opinion, no matter how disrepectful that opinion might be.
