Israeli-American filmmaker Sam Bacile has gone into hiding after his anti-Muslim film sparked protests that led to the deaths of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, a foreign officer Sean Smith and two other Americans. Um, why go into hiding? If you claim Islam is such a “cancer” why hide? Put your money where your mouth is and face your critics, many of whom are willing to die for their religion.
Speaking by phone from an undisclosed location, writer and director Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion.
Protesters angered over Bacile’s film opened fire on and burned down the U.S. Consulate in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, killing U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three others on Tuesday. In Egypt, protesters scaled the walls of the U.S. Embassy in Cairo and replaced an American flag with an Islamic banner.
The two-hour movie, “Innocence of Muslims,” cost $5 million to make and was financed with the help of more than 100 Jewish donors, said Bacile, who wrote and directed it. Source
Terry Jones is defiant too, but these guys won’t stop until they get a dose of their own medicine. By the way, it seems that Sam Bacile isn’t this punk’s real name and he’s not Israeli either, according to The Atlantic. Something stinks and I would love to know who are those Jews who financed the film. I hope we get answers. I will certainly be digging around.
Mitt Romney made a complete ass of himself for slamming President Obama’s response to the tragedy, before he actually knew the ambassador was killed, as “disgraceful.” Well, Obama’s approval rating just shot up to 51 percent to his 42 percent, according to a new Gallup poll. Seems like Mittens is getting desperate with Obama’s widening lead.
According to the Guardian: “Army Gen. Martin Dempsey has called Terry Jones, the Florida-based pastor and provocateur, to ask him to disavow the film “Innocence of Muslims.”
Chairman of Joint Chiefs Gen. Dempsey called Pastor Jones + asked him to consider withdrawing his support for the film, per @lmartinezabc
