Israeli-American Sam Bacile Produces Hate Movie about Prophet Muhammad Provoking Protests and Violence

Israeli-American Sam Bacile Produces Hate Movie about Prophet Muhammad Provoking Protests and Violence

“There is no excuse for violently reacting to such a poorly made and clearly incendiary movie, ever; in fact it is surreal, like something out of a salivating Islamophobes wildest dream.”

The Daily Beast reports that an Israeli-American real-estate developer by the name of Sam Bacile produced a movie about the Prophet Muhammad meant specifically to provoke a reaction of rage–he succeeded. The Atlantic tells us that not much is known about Bacile, and that there are doubts about his true identity. Amongst those involved in promoting the film is the goofball Pastor Terry Jones,

Earlier on Tuesday, scholars at Egypt’s influential Al-Azhar mosque condemned the film ridiculing Prophet Muhammad produced by an Israeli-American real-estate developer in California, Sam Bacile, and promoted by among others Florida-based Christian evangelist Terry Jones, whose burning of a Quran sparked riots in Afghanistan in 2011. The condemnation and news about the movie moved like wildfire across Islamist Facebook pages. Salafi preachers took to Islamist satellite channels to add their fury.

The two-hour film of a symbolic “trial” of the Muslim prophet has not been shown yet, but a 14-minute trailer of the movie was posted on YouTube both in an English version and another dubbed into Arabic. The movie, Innocence of Muslims, depicts Muhammad as a fraud and a womanizer. Bacile told reporters that he doesn’t know who dubbed the film. Terry Jones said that the film shows “the destructive ideology of Islam,” adding that the attacks in Benghazi and Cairo demonstrate that Muslims “have no tolerance.”

The trailer for the movie can be viewed here: The Innocence of Muslims Movie Trailer.

Lets just say that Sam Bacile is no Salman Rushdie.

The movie is of a quality that is several degrees below horrid, the amateur and crude nature of the production render it devoid of any artistic value. Forget about any real, accurate, historical basis for the depiction of Prophet Muhammad, he is assigned all the usual Orientalist, Islamophobic characterizations: child molester, murderer, forcibly converting non-believers, bastard seed of an unknown father, sadist and oddly as having a homosexual relationship with the second Caliph Umar.

The fact that the intent behind the film was a bigotry laced attempt at provocation rather than a critical or irreverent look at the life of Prophet Muhammad is confirmed by Bacile himself,

[A]ccording to one of Bacile’s consultants on the film, Steve Klein, the two knew full well that their incendiary movie would provoke violent reprisals…Bacile told The Wall Street Journal’s Matt Bradley and Dion Nissenbaum that “Islam is a cancer” adding that “The movie is a political movie. It’s not a religious movie.”

The movie was produced several months ago, screening to a mostly empty theater in Hollywood and elicited no reaction. This trash movie would have been relegated to the garbage bin of history if it weren’t dubbed into Egyptian Arabic. The dubbed version went viral on Egyptian and Libyan Facebook pages and networks, resulting in the protests that we witnessed yesterday and today.

The movie feeds already existing anti-Western sentiments as well as narratives in the region of an American-led Western War on Islam, an overall disrespect and intolerance for Muslim culture and symbols, and a sense that the West is a bastion of hypocrisy, decadence and uncivilized conduct. Opportunistic Egyptian media outlets, politicians and preachers have exploited the video for their own causes, in effect generating and energizing a movie that should simply have been ignored, or at the most mocked and scorned for how over-the-top terrible it is.

The protesters reaction on the other hand will fuel perceptions in the West that Muslims  (though there were only several thousand mostly fundamentalist protesters) cannot distinguish between the free speech of its citizens and the positions and actions of governments. It will also fuel the perception that Muslims cannot properly handle offensive speech directed against those personages or symbols they hold as sacred without reacting irrationally and violently.

This mutual miscomprehension will continue so long as both sides remain wantonly ignorant of where the other side is coming from, and as long as those voices vested in promoting hatred and bigotry on both sides are amplified.

In a turn for the worst we have also learned that tragically, the US Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stephens along with three members of his staff have died in an attack on the US consulate,

The US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens, has died from smoke inhalation in an attack on the US consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, the country’s interior ministry and security sources have said.

The ambassador was paying a short visit to the city when the consulate came under attack on Tuesday night, Al Jazeera’s Suleiman El-Dressi reported from Benghazi.

He died of suffocation during the attack, along with two US security personnel who were accompanying him, security sources told Al Jazeera. Another consulate employee, whose nationality could not immediately be confirmed, was also killed.

Two other staff were injured, El-Dressi reported. The deaths were confirmed by Wanis al-Sharif, the Libyan deputy interior minister, to the AFP news agency.

According to several reports the attackers used the protest as a “diversion” to launch an attack on the consulate that had been planned well in advance,

U.S. officials say the embassy attack in Libya may have been a coordinated attack planned ahead of time. That follows a report by CNN citing sources that say the attackers used the film protests as a “diversion” to reach the embassy.

There is no excuse for violently reacting to such a poorly made and clearly incendiary movie, ever; in fact it is surreal, like something out of a salivating Islamophobes wildest dream.

There is a lot here that is oddly coincidental, why is this happening right around the time of the 11th anniversary of 9/11? Once again a movie is the center of attention during a tight presidential race involving Barack Obama and his Republican opponent; in 2008 it was Obsession, this year it seems to be The Innocence of Muslims.

Finally, I want to add that we should not be surprised that violence based in ignorance has surfaced. If rampant and ignorant anti-Muslim Islamophobia expressing itself violently can rear its ugly head in a stable, prosperous and wealthy nation like the United States, how can we expect that hateful anti-Muslim propaganda won’t lead to emotional and violent anti-American protests in countries that have weak, transitioning governments, poor economies and significant levels of illiteracy?

  1. hell wid america n Isra’HELL’

  2. CNN reported that this was not the cause of the attacks on the Embassy in Libya… maybe we should just focus on the real cause of the attacks, and not give any air time to the perpetrators of garbage like this

  3. ISLAM: “O you who believe, be steadfast in your devotion to God, bearing witness to the truth in all equity, and never let the hatred of others to you make you swerve to wrong and depart from justice. Be just: (for) that is closest to being God-conscious. And remain conscious of God: verily, God is aware of all that you do.” [Quran, 5:8-9]

    ISLAM: “The (true) servants of (God) the Compassionate are those who walk on the earth humbly, and when the ignorant address them, reply with (words of) peace.” [Quran, 25:63]

    ISLAM: “And endure with patience whatever people may say [against you], and avoid them with a comely avoidance.” [Quran 73:10]

    ISLAM: The Messenger of Allah (saws) said: “If any of you becomes angry, let him keep silent.” (Reported by Imam Ahmad, al-Musnad, 1/329; see also Sahih al-Jaami‘, 693, 4027)

  4. Richard Engle (MSNBC) said the Egyptian attack was carried out by “hardcore” aka salafi muslims. And in Libya it seemed more OF A STAGED PLANNED COMMANDO ATTACK, MORE OF AN AL-QAEDA TYPE OF ATTACK BECAUSE OF THE RPG’S AND MACHINE GUNS

  5. I doubt “Sam Bacile” really exists.

  6. I hate it when people die no matter what the cause and this was a big tragedy ..these muslims are giving a bad name to the rest of us..even though they were probably 100 and we are 2 BILLION :(

  7. Just my opinion: That director was a total inconsiderate moron for making such a film! But for others to react with such violence, including outright murder, is so uncalled for. I believe it is totally against what the Muslim God, Allah, would have done, as would the Christian God. I pray to all to remain calm, announce your disgust with orderly protest if necessary but discontinue the violence and death. All things living on this planet earth need to work together for the common good, for survival and for peace and harmony for all. Again, just my opinion.

  8. Islam is about peacefully living with every faith .Quran 49:13 O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that ye may know each other (not that ye may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of God is (he who is) the most righteous of you. And God has full knowledge and is well acquainted (with all things)

    Quran 3:34 “Say: “O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but God; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God.”

    Quran 3:199 “And there are, certainly, among the People of the Book, those who believe in God, in the revelation to you, and in the revelation to them, bowing in humility to God”

    Quran 48:29 “But their description in the Injeel (Gospel) is like a (sown) seed which sends forth its shoot, then makes and do righteous good deeds, forgiveness and a mighty reward (i.e. Paradise).

    Quran 7:128 “Said Moses to his people, “Seek help through God and be patient. Indeed, the earth belongs to Allah . He causes to inherit it whom He wills of His servants. And the [best] outcome is for the righteous.””

    Quran 7:159 “And among the people of Moses is a community which guides by truth and by it establishes justice.”

    Muslims allowed marraige with jews and Christians. Quran 5.5″.their food is lawful for you and your food is lawful for them. And [lawful in marriage are] chaste women from among the believers and chaste women from among those who were given the Scripture before you”

  9. Our freedom stops where other people’s freedom start. Freedom of speech should never be used to insult another group of people. The views expressed by the movie cannot be considered a freedom of speech as it is hurtful, and the reaction to the movie cannot be considered as freedom neither because it is violence against people. I think this movie was indeed made to provoke people and Muslims who protested violently only made those who insulted the prophet very happy. They were looking for this reaction, and we gave them exactly what they were looking for. what a shame!

  10. Now found Sam Bacile does not exist, so who really made the film and is the reaction exactly what they wanted.

  11. there is no excuse to execute and participate in the murder of 1.6 mil ppl in iraq btwn 2003-2007 and the approx 500,000 children who died during the US led sanctions on iraq btwn 1991-2003 which madeline albright confirmed. no excuse

  12. Terry Jones made the video and it was streaming live yesterday

  13. Response to such shamefull productions against our prophet should be in being even more motivated in spreading Islam, giving out free Qur’an’s, giving the best possible image about muslims, and this is to be done not only by ” Muslim Preachers ” but from moderate muslims and every single muslim out there, that’s how its supposed to be, not do meaningless violence acts. thats just totally brainless and retarded.

  14. Instead of stupid comment like “hell wid america and isra’hell’, try being productive and make a counter movie showing the real Islam. As a West Virginian, I’ve seen the Hunnington mosque and WVU Muslims do GREAT things for the community. Show people stuff like that. Stupid comments won’t solve anything.

  15. i wish more good things happened in this world than bad :(

  16. If it is such a bad movie? Who cares? Ignore it! Forget it! Wite it off as being produced by nut jobs. You islamophiles are wound too tight.

  17. Well said Rana I fully agree

  18. Yeah, the attacks themselves seem like they may have been planned in advance, whereas the protests were just a convenient coincidence. http://www.aljazeera.com/news/middleeast/2012/09/20129112108737726.html

  19. can’t you tell its an election year? to all Christians, remember what christ said,” what you do to the least of these you do to me.” so Christians when you are racists to any one you are racists, towards Jesus.

  20. Just received several notices from my Jewish-Blogs, informing me that the ‘gentleman’ you named is Not JEWISH.
    Before you go on, please check this for yourself and please then issue that information.
    To be Jewish is a fantastic gift ; but his gift comes with a warning.
    We are blamed by so many, for so many things we have not , do not, or would not do.
    My family, friends, temple members, indeed no one I am in contact with, would ever dream of being anti- Muslim.
    The very idea is sickening and inexcusable.

    PLEASE be careful in your writings, please be more accurate, and please do Not play semantic games ; none of these things will speak well of you, or will give you credence.

  21. So it’s the directors fault for using his right of free speech as an american, and not the blood thirsty mob’s fault? The original link blames first and foremost the director/producer, and not the animals who killed our Ambassador. These were people who were just liberated from 42 years of Muammar Qaddafi after crying, begging the west and america to save them from being slaughtered like rats. And they repay us with killing our Ambassador, two of our fine Marines, and an embassy staffer! Pull aid from these assholes, asap!

  22. no excuse…,

  23. “Pull aid from these assholes, asap!” Elizabeth, because the Libyans are just a homogenized political group huh? Not at all like they had a civil war just under a year ago.

  24. maybe they need a thicker skin when it comes to “their G-D” they are the intolerant ones. dont hate the religion get rid of the extremest

  25. This ambassador helped that country while they were going through war, and that’s how they pay him.. I can stomach the anger in Egypt and other places, but to kill innocent souls who have done absolutely nothing, it angers me and makes me sick to my stomach as a Muslim.

  26. Here, one political party didn’t do as well as they wanted and decided “Fuck human life”. It’s not at all like there has been a unified representation of Libyan politics in this attack.http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/383649/20120912/benghazi-consulate-attack-salafist-libya-stevens.htm

  27. The more journalists look into Sam Bcle (who supposedly made the original movie) the less anyone can find anything about him. He doesn’t appear to actually be Jewish Israeli, he also is not a land developer in California, and there are no paper trails proving “100 Jewish” donors funding this allegedly $5mil film. There is even some info that “Bacile” may be linked to salafists?

  28. It was just youtube trash, plenty of same already there. So why did this get the big reaction? Orchestrated for 9/11.

  29. Who got theaters for this? It sounds too low for most theaters. Juan Cole is minimizing at his place as usual.

    Poster at Huffpo says US should quit trying to teach fish how to climb trees, leave fish in the pond.

  30. Here’s the man who claims responsibility for organizing and distributing this movie: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Stand-Up-America-with-Dr-Terry-Jones/152854321414642?ref=ts

  31. He came all the way from Israel into America to make that movie.. !!!

  32. @Daniel I did not quite understand what u meant.. but my opinion if u care… Lybia is a country that has just come out form war.. and there are ppl out there who really hate US ect. ect. Lybia-US relationships.. what I think.. some one took advantage of the situation.

  33. @Daniel: Where were the Libyan Security Forces? Ah, that’s right…they actually pointed out the building where the Ambassador was hiding to the terrorists. That sounds like complicity to me.

  34. Help films showing Islam in a good light get made! Not the ignorant films that provoke violence and breed Islamophobia! make our campaign go viral and we promise to make a world of difference!

    http://tinyurl.com/OLFfilm

  35. we must be taking about the movie.. what happened in Lybia was SERIOUSLY tragic, let Lybia and US take care about it.

  36. we must be taking about the movie.. what happened in Lybia was SERIOUSLY tragic, let Lybia and US take care about it.

  37. @ On LookFilms you made no sense..

  38. @Rana: That is not freedom of speech. You ARE free to insult a religion or state your grievances with it if that is what you choose to do. You are free to voice criticism, opinion, and even hatred for anything, so long as you do not infringe upon the rights of others to practice their religion or political philosophy, or what have you. You have a very skewed view of ‘freedom of speech and conscience’. Just because something is ‘hurtful’ does not mean that nobody on the planet has the right to say it.

  39. What should be noted is that, in spite of the hateful and vitriolic portrayal of the Prophet, most Muslims did NOT react violently. 2 Billion people do little more than shake their heads at the stupidity of a rabble rousing preacher, but all we hear about is the few hundred who reacted violently. It is fewer than one thousandth of a percent.

    Clearly, violence is not the accepted behavior for Muslims.

  41. There was no excuse for making the movie. Bacile shares in the blame–as does pretty much everybody down the line.

  42. No surprise that the leftists and Islamists are blaming the Jews for what some Muslims did. These are the same people who defended the murder of Theo van Gogh, death threats against Salman Rushdie, and the riots over those Danish cartoons.

  43. that trailer was hilarious. the acting was worst than porn.

    ““There is no excuse for violently reacting to such a poorly made and clearly incendiary movie, ever; in fact it is surreal, like something out of a salivating Islamophobes wildest dream.”” shouldn’t that be the end of the article. well maybe you can say what is surreal, it that peace loving muslims would be driven to murder over a film? call me crazy but i’m starting to think that islam might not be “the religion of peace”?

    “Sam Bacile produced a movie about the Prophet Muhammad meant specifically to provoke a reaction of rage–he succeeded.” how sad that it is so easy to provoke murderous rage from the followers of “the religion of peace”.

    “Lets just say that Sam Bacile is no Salman Rushdie.” true that. and how many people died at muslim hands for satanic verses. it appears there has been little growth in the muslim world for freedom of speech.

    “the West is a bastion of hypocrisy, decadence and uncivilized conduct.” lol. so it is civilized to kill four people for what someone else did. calling yourselves the religion of peace yet, you riot and kill constantly, could that be call hypocrisy? and so the fuck what if we are decadent. who are the muslims to tell us we can’t be decadent.

    “will fuel perceptions in the West that Muslims” perceptions? this is reality. there are many precidents. this isn’t a one off anomily. he mentions rushdie himself.

    “It will also fuel the perception that Muslims cannot properly handle offensive speech directed against those personages or symbols they hold as sacred without reacting irrationally and violently.” again how is that a perception? is he serious? do we need to review?

    “Finally, I want to add that we should not be surprised that violence based in ignorance has surfaced.” of course not, we have seen it many times before.

    “If rampant and ignorant anti-Muslim Islamophobia expressing itself violently can rear its ugly head in a stable, prosperous and wealthy nation like the United States,” i must have missed some serious news. we killed a muslim ambassador? we stormed the egyptian embassy?

    “poor economies and significant levels of illiteracy?” so being poor or illiterate is an excuse for violence? i thought muhammad was illiterate? hang on, so now he’s making excuses for the violence? “There is no excuse for violently reacting”, so which is it?

  44. Honestly, people should be free to express themselves, no matter how poorly (and believe me, it is a really bad movie from the film aspect alone) so people shouldn’t harp on whoever made it for simply for making it. Now, the fact that the filmmaker is so smug about what has happened in the face of all this violence is cause to berate him.

  46. Hang Sam Bacile !!

  47. ISLAM: Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment, KORAN 5:33.

    funny this guy says that sahih bukhari says all the same things as this movie.

  48. Okay this movie just gets more and more bizarre. http://gawker.com/5942748

  49. Okay this movie just gets more and more bizarre. http://gawker.com/5942748

  50. Today I am both embarrassed and extremely sad more than words can display.

    There are obviously two sides for what happened today. First, I’m deeply sad because that movie was an insult to: #1 All Muslims all over the world. #2 All Christians, because that could not be the act of christians. #3 It was an insult to all of 9/11 victims and their families for using their memorial as an excuse for racism and hatred.

    Second, I’m very embarrassed to see the anger of few Muslims (as they would describe themselves) directed toward people that have NOTHING to do with that movie whatsoever. If they have just questioned themselves what the prophet would do or if they have read their book (Quran), they wouldn’t have any of that because The holy Quran teaches:

    “Those who spend (for charity) in ease and in adversity, and those who control their anger and are forgiving toward mankind; God loveth the good;” (3:134)

    “Hold to forgiveness, command what is right, and turn away from the ignorant.” (7:199)

    “And when they hear vain talk, they turn away therefrom and say: “To us our deeds, and to you yours; peace be to you: we seek not the ignorant.” (28:55)

    It really doesn’t get much clearer than this, but sadly we have people that act against what they believe which gives Islam the bad name.

    In the end, I don’t quite understand the reason behind that movie, it could be political as some people say, but innocents were killed, and millions were offended, so we can NOT just let this pass without learning something here. That thing in my opinion is that there are people who want to divide us, mankind, and IT IS EVERYONE’S RESPONSIBLITY TO LOOK FOR THE TRUTH and to find who are those people and why they have done that movie (not from Fox or Al-Jazeera people, don’t be lazy). It’s not freedom of speech as you might think, because according to my knowledge there is no religion asks the people to offend and disgraced those from other beliefs.

    May all the victims of today’s event rest in peace, and may God forgive those who insulted the Holy Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). If they knew him well, they would be so ashamed of their action.

    If people would just open their minds and respect others beliefs, then maybe we would have a better World.
    Peace to all from Baghdad/Iraq.

  52. Thank you Carl. Most Muslims I know would never believe that the killing of innocent ppl would be a moral thing to do. Our Prophet(pbuh) never taught ppl to act in such a manner. The one who made this movie did so to get just this reaction. It’s a few Muslims who give him just what he wanted. Some Scholar I have on my FB have already condemed what happened. :(

  53. Scholars i meant.

  54. Last I read was that the film is simply a montage of clips, it had been on youtube and was promoted to rile up the masses, the Libya attack was just some people attacking the embassy at same time as those protesting the film.

  55. I suppose they wanted to kill some americans in honor of 9/11. Security forces told them which building to attack. It’s a Libya thing. Bah. Leave the fish in the pond and quit trying to teach them to climb trees.

  56. perhaps the facebook fiqh is not too in depth.

    http://awgilani.wordpress.com/2010/12/04/blasphemy/

  57. so does israeli-israeli caroline glick who is a real person. google her or see her in action on you tube.

  58. As long as ignorant non-Muslims are disrespectful of.the things Muslims good sacred there will always be this type.of reaction. People should stop trying to.create drama in the world and grow up.

  59. Most of these comments are proof that Islamist Muzzies are not humans. They are like rabid dogs who are demented and are on a biting frenzy. These dogs do not need any excuse to attack us. They bite because we exist.

    Listen Islamist Muzzie dogs and leftist dog shit eaters, Freedom means that anyone and everyone who has ever walked this earth can be and will be criticized. Pedo Mo is no exception. If your shitty religion receives even 1/100th of the treatment it offers to other religions, all of you would be exterminated like pests now. Bloody bastards, your used toilet roll of a book, the hole-e-qurant, is full of hatred for non-muzzies. So shouldn’t you all be killed for that ?

    Freedom is the only religion. Truth is the only God. Rest is all made up bull shit.

    Your nations deserve to be nuked to save rest of the humanity from Pisslamist virus.

  60. Here is the man who cheerfully claims responsibility for distributing this movie. If anyone would like to call Terry the number assigned to his page is 352-371-2487; If anyone cares to write a letter here are the addresses associated with this page: Dove World Outreach Center, Mailing Address: 5200 NW 43rd St Ste. 102 #188. Gainesville, FL 32606-4486; the other address associated to him listed is: Lisa Jones House 5805 Nw 37th St, Gainesville, FL. http://www.facebook.com/pages/YES-Im-Muslim/434591193247247?ref=hl#!/pages/Stand-Up-America-with-Dr-Terry-Jones/152854321414642

  61. true that. We need to stay calm n deter the negativities.

  62. @Cody Wilkinson, you are so RIGHT!!! Im hating this, hating this claims of religions. Its irrelevant who are insulted or criticized, and especially a religion are not free from any critic. Im hating Terry Jones and the other of this mischpoke, but its a right to say this, and this right is in my opinion more worth than sensitivities of beliefers.

  63. Turns out he’s not Israeli.. ignorant Coptic Christian :(

  64. There cannot be peace until America and Israel stops making stupid movies of our beloved Prophet Muhammad(PBUH). If you are serious about peace then stop anti Islamic propaganda.

  65. :'(

  66. Ban the film for hate speech?

    Ban the koran too then…

    http://quran.com/9/27-33

  67. You tube has a number of anti islam movies. Why the sudden uproar about this particular one?

    Libyan gov no doubt organized the protestors expressing condolence.

  68. Continue Violence and Violence will continue against you

  69. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-19584734

    yemen. they must be pissed about a drone strike? no just a stupid film.

    Aaishah,

    so who needs to grow up? salman rushdie? theo van gogh, well he’s dead? the dutch cartoonists? the american constitution needs to change?

    let me see if i follow you? an american insults something sacred to muslims, he should be killed? and if you can’t kill him because he is half way around the world, just kill the nearest white guy you see? on attack anything “western”.

  70. I don’t think it has much to do with the film, there are films cursing islam and Mohammad all over youtube.

    There are a great many muslims that think theocracy is a good idea and they are not going to believe otherwise until their own son is dragged off a bus and shot for being the wrong religion or wearing the wrong kind of pants.

    So what we are going to see is years of blundering and massacres. They could kill as many people as the communists did.

  71. Or maybe we just bomb Mecca?

  72. Israeli filmmaker has done America great harm by makeing a film to hurt the feelings of muslims world wide, and to give rise to anti Americanism world wide

  73. Israeli filmmaker has done America great harm by makeing a film to hurt the feelings of muslims world wide, and to give rise to anti Americanism world wide

  74. “Israeli filmmaker has done America great harm by makeing a film to hurt the feelings of muslims world wide, and to give rise to anti Americanism world wide”

    While murderous, violent, muslims are showing the world how peaceful islam is?

  75. If rampant and ignorant anti-Muslim Islamophobia expressing itself violently can rear its ugly head in a stable, prosperous and wealthy nation like the United States,” i must have missed some serious news. we killed a Muslim ambassador? we stormed the Egyptian embassy?

    Ok so were equating the breakage of signs or the shooting of a pellet rifle at a Mosque wall as examples of equitable violence I guess I can agree. If your bringing up the shooting at the Sikh temple then I would suggest they are not Muslim and the incident does not represent a pattern. Muslim violence, on the other hand, one can see the pattern.

  76. Filmaker is Nakoula. Riots are using the film as an excuse.

  77. Yes I am a Muslim: That was a pretty dirty thing to do in posting Terry Jones address and phone number. There can only be one reason for doing so given the violence that is occurring today and yesterday over that video. I am not sure if face book posters can even see this page, but the posting is another black mark against Islam and the will of its followers. I do not like Terry Jones but what do you think will happen if someone drives up to his house and shoots him? He has a following, and they are not the smartest in the world. What do you think their reaction will be? In physics a law states for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. In the human course of events it reads for every action there is often a non equal overreaction. Who do you think will pay the price of this overreaction? I fully support free speech, but when you specifically place an address in a public place knowing you are placing a person and his family’s life in danger with that placement , you are way outside of free speech bounds.

  78. ccc,

    “you are way outside of free speech bounds.” what are you taking about? first of all addresses are public record. second he has a church that any idiot could find. and third, if the facebook muslims call him, most of them appear to be so dumb that they will leave voice mail death threats. he would love nothing better. this guy is a publicity genius. he might be able to parlay that into a guest spot on the 700 club.

    outside the bounds would be when the new black panter party guy but a $10,000 on zimmerman’s head. or did you hear the one nbpp guy on the radio saying we are going to have to start killing these white babies born 3 seconds ago. throw bombs in the nursery.

  79. Akido Arjun,
    U r perhaps the most uneducated and hate filled individual as well. Just another crazy loon who supports all America’s wars. Name me one war that was started by the Muslims first, if you dare. Do I hear 9/11? Of course for all those who are unaware on why we really needed to invade Iraq.

    Cynthia Neal
    Just received several notices from my Jewish-Blogs, informing me that the ‘gentleman’ you named is Not JEWISH.

    No one said he was Jewish. Or blamed Judaism. Reporting he is Israeli is just an example to show how Israel gains support for its war on Muslim countries.

    Mike,
    funny this guy says that sahih bukhari says all the same things as this movie.
    “Actually its funny how u can lie so easily even after I proved u were lying about 5:33. U are a perfect example of what haters and racists do. Recycle the same garbage and spit it out again.

  80. Maybe Mike: but you know as well as I do why that information was published. Not all addresses are public record some are kept hidden for various reasons. I understand the church is easy to find, but it was wrong to publish the house address. Terry Jones is not a good person but basically inviting people to his house to do whatever is just not right. Same thing occured when the two writers from south park were threatened. A Muslim website published their home addresses, in the end the the man was arrested and jailed.

  81. One person said, “It is wrong to equate the two sides in this situation. Sma Bacile was wrong to produce the movie, but the violent demonstrators are responsible for their actions…they could have laughed it off, or cried, or prepared a rebuttal, or made a counter-insult, or peacefully protested, or a combination of any two or more of those things…instead, they chose to go a rampage, and engage in murder, arson, looting and other types of thuggery.”

    I largely agree with that. The movie is a scurrilous, offensive piece of garbage, and Sam Bacile is a horse’s ass, but violence is not the appropriate answer.

  82. bennet,

    ““Actually its funny how u can lie so easily even after I proved u were lying about 5:33.” what lie was this you “proved”? impaling is the same as crucifixion? again, of the verses i posted that is the one that isn’t claiming that the pharoahs crucified people. the problem with 5:33 is that it says you can put people to death for spreading mischief. is it mischievous to make a movie saying muhammad was a murdering womanizing bastard? you do see that the iranians quote 5:33 in justification of their blasphemy law. did you read the other link. i’ll post it below for ya.
    “U are a perfect example of what haters and racists do. Recycle the same garbage and spit it out again.” well i’m spitting it out again because it is relevent to the topic. not that i always stay on topic. plus there are new people coming to the site daily, therefore it is not regurtitated to them. anyways as far as my hatred, i do hate ideologies that mean to limit my freedoms. i do love my decadence so. as for me being a racist. not true. i don’t judge people on their race. but i do judge cultures. i find the islamic culture to be backwards and inferior to western cultures. so would you like to see a world wide blasphemy law so your beloved prophet couldn’t be insulted? are you against american freedom of speech? you agree with nazrul ali, that the producers of the movie should be arrested? and harshly punished. can you go on facebook for me and ask him if he is an american?

  83. “Let’s get to another verse where Allah (SWT) announces the punishment for enemies (of ALLAH and His Apostle) and who so ever attributes disgrace to Allah and His Apostle Mohammad (S.A.W).” sorry the picture text where he quotes 5:33 didn’t paste. so here’s the link AGAIN.

    maybe i have to keep spitting things because you don’t acknowledge them the first time? speaking of repeating oneself. how many times have you called my a racist or bigot or hater? LOL.

  84. It seems so difficult to get Islam to overreact. Sam
    Besile does not exist any more than Muhammed did.

  85. Freedom of speech is respected by us Muslims as well, but it does not mean that you can insult the most respected person for muslims as this is sacred for us. Mike, please put urself in my place, for instance. Is there something sacred in this world for you? Something or somebody that you love more than life. How would you feel if smb insults this thing or person publicly and also states that there are documents which prove this, which actually is wrong and you know it? I wish the producer of that movie and all the supporters would feel the same way as all the muslims do!

  86. “Freedom of speech is respected by us Muslims as well, but it does not mean that you can insult the most respected person for muslims as this is sacred for us”

    Yet you are happy for your koran to insult christians and deny the divinity of jesus and the crucifixion of jesus – christians find that highly insulting.

  87. Saydullo,

    “Freedom of speech is respected by us Muslims as well,” come on. that is clearly not the case. you can’t say we respect freedom of speech, as long as we aren’t offended. so how is it that 5 islamic nation have the death penalty for blasphemy? many others will imprison people for insulting the prophet.
    “but it does not mean that you can insult the most respected person for muslims as this is sacred for us.” lol. that is exactly what freedom of speech means. you are a true abrahamic with your self contridiction. so you support freedom of non-offensive speech. offensive speech is that which needs to be protected. have you read the supreme court ruling on the westborough baptist church. have you heard of the skokie illinois case?
    “Mike, please put urself in my place, for instance. Is there something sacred in this world for you?” sacred? no. i can’t put myself in the place of the irrational, sorry. i can’t walk a mile in crazy moccasins. i hold the american flag and constitution in high regard. but i don’t go apeshit everytime muslims burn the flag. i’m not in favor of creating a law making it illegal to burn the flag. when muslims come out in support of people being able to insult the prophet, without threat of violence, THEN AND ONLY THEN can you say: “Freedom of speech is respected by us Muslims as well,”
    “Something or somebody that you love more than life.” no, there is no symbol or book or historical figure i love more than life.
    “How would you feel if smb insults this thing or person publicly and also states that there are documents which prove this, which actually is wrong and you know it? I wish the producer of that movie and all the supporters would feel the same way as all the muslims do!” insult away? trust me i won’t kill you, burn your embassy, or even throw a bottle at you.
    i’m sorry you are so emotional/irrational that you care what someone on the other side of the world says about some guy how has been dead for 1400 years. please your reasoning only reinforces the idea that muslims are against freedom of speech. feel anyway you want. it is your own words and your people’s actions that speak the truth. muslims are against freedom of speech.

  88. It is my personl opinion,i condomen both acts!bacile is trash and he has done that,the answer 4 those evil act is not killing the innocent!Do not call american, jewish…but the qoran can best answer.trash opinion against islam is not the 1st or end,it continues till the end of this world. u who beleive handle this the way the qoran teachs!!

  89. Deribe dalu,

    “u who beleive handle this the way the qoran teachs!!” so how does the teach to handle insults to the prophet? what about the hadiths? or are you a koran only muslim.

Have your say!
