Filmmaker Whose ‘Innocence of Islam’ Started Riots in Benghazi, Cairo, Went Underground

The raid of a U.S. consulate in Libya followed a protest in Egypt where demonstrators scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it.

Filmmaker Sam Bacile has provoked strong protests in recent days, protests which have already claimed the life of an American consulate employee in Benghazi, Libya. In a telephone interview with The Associated Press, Bacile said that he went into hiding for fear that Islamic radicals would try to hurt him because his video, titled “Innocence of Islam,” showing the Prophet Mohammed as a skirt chaser who favored the sexual exploitation of children.

“Islam is a cancer. Period,” said Bacile in the call, made, he claimed, from his hiding place. He said he only wanted to send a message. The provocative filmmaker is a 56-year-old real estate man, describing himself as an Israeli Jew – though that claim of Israeli citizenship is unconfirmed and doubted by some. He explained that the film would help Israel by revealing the expansionism of Islam in the world and the danger of it.

Following news of the new film, gunmen attacked the consulate compound in Benghazi on Tuesday evening, clashing with and overwhelming Libyan security forces with heavy fire. Reuters reporters on the scene saw looters raiding the compound, walking off with desks, chairs and washing machines. A security official said a fire was burning inside the consulate and that staff had been evacuated. Three injured members of the Libyan security forces taken away in an ambulance.

The gunmen emerged from a crowd that was protesting a film they said was blasphemous.

The raid in Libya followed a protest in Egypt where demonstrators scaled the walls of the U.S. embassy, tore down the American flag and burned it.

The U.S. embassy in Cairo issued a hasty response, probably in an attempt to prevent what later took place in Benghazi:

“The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims – as we condemn efforts to offend believers of all religions… We firmly reject the actions by those who abuse the universal right of free speech to hurt the religious beliefs of others.”

But an administration official told Politico, “The statement by Embassy Cairo was not cleared by Washington and does not reflect the views of the United States government.”

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton subsequently issued a statement of her own, saying:

“Some have sought to justify this vicious behavior as a response to inflammatory material posted on the Internet. The United States deplores any intentional effort to denigrate the religious beliefs of others. Our commitment to religious tolerance goes back to the very beginning of our nation. But let me be clear: There is never any justification for violent acts of this kind.”

“Innocence of Islam” cost $5 million dollars and was funded by more than 100 Jewish donors. It was written and directed by Bacile, filmed in 2011, and is two hours long. The production employed 59 actors.

The only full screening to date has been in front of a half-empty theater in Hollywood. The parts of it that were uploaded to YouTube have already caused a wave of protests across the Muslim world.

Referring to the killing of a U.S. consulate worker in Benghazi, Libya, Bacile said: “I feel that the security system in these embassies is not good. America needs to do something to change it.”

  2. It is not that hard to put something together showing just the bad things of various groups because every religion or other large group of people does some bad things. One could also make a video showing such things as Orthodox Jews throwing stones at women who dress in ways of which the Orthodox disapprove. Such videos do not justify violent behavior by those depicted in the videos but that does not mean that producing such videos is a good or beneficial activity. In particular, the chance that "the film would help Israel by revealing the expansionism of Islam in the world and the danger of it" is approximately equal to the chance that the Messiah is going to announce his existence via a tweet on Twitter this coming Yom Kippur. The number of people who will feel more negative toward Islam and more postive toward Judaism due to this video will most likely be outnumbered by those who will conclude, after watching the video, that Israelis are crazy bigotted radicals.

  3. Hayat Muaref says:

    After every problem that concerns Islam now a days , Israel is behind all the problems , they will never stop , they instigate the problem an fuel Muslims to react in violence , and they say terrorists , they r violent , look at what you are putting out , this was made by stupid idiots , how can you judge a religion when u know nothing about it , everything that was played in this video was FALSE , I think hell is to good of a place for people like you, this is disgusting an outrageous, ignorance ignorance ignorance ignorance ignorance!

  4. Charlie Hall says:

    There is no more excuse for this kind of extremist hate propaganda than there was for the Mubarak regime to produce a film version of Protocols of the Elders of Zion. While there is absolutely no excuse for violent terrorism, just because someone else lit the match does not mean that the people who spread the gasoline are innocent!

  5. Bill Meadema says:

    Your an idiot if you believe Israel is behind this and all the violence that the arab community has pontificated…REMEMBER 9/11 and who was behind it…Muslim terrorists!

  6. Amade Camal says:

    Bacile and is finance supporters (jews) show they ignorance and radicalism.The violence are consequence of radicals opportunistics infiltraded at peacefull demonstrations.

  7. Ikhlas Jaber says:

    I think this is the most disgusting and disrespectful movie I've every seen, to portray a picture of Islam or any religion or it's prophet

  8. Ikhlas Jaber says:

    It just shows how ignorant these kinds of people are

  9. Amade Camal says:

    estes actos provocativos, fazem parte de estrategias conspirativas eleitorais nos USA afim de afectar um dos candidatos. Os Israelitas/Judeus estao sempre disponivel, e os Muculmanos sempre prontos a reagir na flor da pele.Temos que ser mais inteligentes, usar e nao sermos usados.

  10. Hayat Muaref says:

    can u tell me how many jews died on september 11????? i can answer that for u …………..>>>>>>>>>>>>> 0

  11. Hayat Muaref says:

    Bringing up september 11 an comparing to this stupid movie is insulting not only to muslim people its insulting americans that died on that day , you people cant compare the anything to september,11 , it was a sad day in history for those american people I should know ,stop using september,11 to get anyone to feel sorry for you, they do not share you're views about this , stop instigating between Islam an USA,

  12. Hayat Muaref says:

    Bill Meadema In america when you want to make a movie , you do research , thats what many of the news media were saying as well as film makers.

  13. Fatimah Rafati says:

    Agreed 100 percent!!! Well said hayat :)

  14. Bill Meadema says:

    Many Jews died in those towers on 9/11 when those islamic terrorists flew the planes into them. You are very niave if you think no Jews died… Hayat and Fatimah; please stay away from the USA…we don't want your type in our country nor do I want to support your country(s) anymore…

  15. BS”D
    I find tragic that the ‘prejudices’ of someone else would cause the suffering of others. Religious intolerance is the problem. Sadly the same way too many people portray and misrepresent Islam today is very similar to how Judaism and the Jewish people were portrayed by anti-Semitic propaganda through hisotry. Tragic!!! May the Eternal One makes us intruments of peace.

  16. Seems he is an Egyptian Copt and not a Jew!

  17. Hayat how many Jews participated in killing Muslim diplomats after Egypt put out the series on the Protocols of the Elders of Zion? I know how many zero and as to your stupid post about Jews Killed on 9/11 learn how to read and see the victim lists. You are so brainwashed that you may be hopeless. I have a suggestion reas something other than the Koran!

  18. Ethan Perks says:

    I looked up Sam Bacile on line. It's not his real name. Sources further said he's not Israeli and likely not a Jew. It's beginning to look like this film (if indeed their is a film, beyond the YouTube clip) is part of a disinformation opp to incite ant- US, anti-Jewish fervor in the Islamic world. That doesn't take much effort and appears to be working.

  19. Ethan Perks says:

    Bill; Hayat is not an idiot. That could be forgiven. He's a rabid anti-semite, a common theme among the worlds Muslems.

  20. It's sad to see the one guy on here blaming another race of people ( In this case Israel ) for his own religious problems.

  21. Julane Jazzique says:

    What about having self control over your emotions? Killing is never justified over hurt feelings. One would have to say grow up.

  22. Julane Jazzique says:

    Now that makes perfect sense.

  23. This guy is, hands down, nuts…

  24. Fatimah Rafati says:

    I was born and raised in san antonio TX so im sorry Im not going any where. And by type what do u mean? I am a american muslim and I am proud to be an american muslim. Just because you see one act from certain people does NOT MEAN every single other person is doing those acts as well. You cant label a certain type of people Just by there race and where they come from or how they dress. People here treat me with respect and I respect other races as well. My friends are mexican, jewish, muslim, chinese you name it!and we love each other as equal people :) also I respect the people that died on those twin towers.

  25. Can't disagree with that …

  26. Kamrujjaman Kazi says:

    true but still it is hide.

  27. Hayat Muaref says:

    Oh wow I love that you believe that jews were killed in those towers, an were not going anywhere I gotta be you're worst nightmare I'm a PALESTINIAN- AMERICAN I know are kind will be around to keep ur kind in line :)

  28. Hayat Muaref says:

  29. Anya Khan says:

    wow are you a nazi sympathizing a s s clown

  30. Anya Khan says:

    So? I did not see you complaining that the ambassador's body was bing dragged down the street. The movie was nothing but an excuse to attack Americans on 9/11

  31. Anya Khan says:

    The ultra orthodox that were arrested? And what kid of animal compares throwing rocks to attacking the embasssy Almost no one will ever see the movie but we will never forget that once again muslims attacked the US on 9/11

  32. Anya Khan says:

    BS this was a planned attack on the US on 9/11

  33. Amade Camal says:

    this stupid attack was planned by USA secret services using muslims once again, to influence us elections and fuel middle east, to justify the presence of new US army contigent in region.

  34. Bill Meadema says:

    Hayat Muaref…Can you spell Canter Fitzgerald? Many employee's of Canter were in the towers at the time of the cowardly attacks… Many of them were of Jewish faith and they were also Americans… So your hypothesis of "0" is flawed to say the least… To comment on the movie in discussion (which was totally poor); the movie is freedom of speech which is allowed in the United States.. Get over it..no reason to kill 4 people or attack our embassy's…

  35. Hayat Muaref Many Jews were killed on 9-11. You sound hateful and ignorant. This film was not made by Jews,but an Egyptian Copt,how about the films made by Muslims slandering Jews,like the bllod libel bs…Get real a few sick people are ruining this world. Are you one of them or are you for peace with all no matter what their religion is or isn't.

  36. Hayat Muaref says:

    Im over u an this stupid guy support who ever u want , we know who Muhammad is we don't need ur input on who we are , may the people who died on september 11 rest in peace , you can have freedom of speech but plz do research before u go after Muslim people and there messenger , I don't think you've ever watched a movie in arabic that was about the profits because all there is respect towards them , from Moses, Jesus, Abraham, an all the rest , we don't disrespect any of our profits so why should we sit back an have this person disrespect our profit??????????????anyway PEACE!!!

  37. Hayat Muaref says:

  38. Hayat Muaref says:

    Unfortunately racism and ignorance still exist in this world, we must smile in the face of hatred and show no pain , we must continue to live as we have lived before no fear except the fear from Allah , we must tolerate and forgive the ignorance of others for they have not been taught the truth about who we really are!!
    IM DONE!!!

  39. Yes it is working all over the world. In the UK the most influential Muslilm groups still post a condemnation of "the Israeli" even though everyone knows he is an Arab Christian.

    Of course, a leading Pakistan paper says congressional testimony by
    David Duke blames 911 on Israeli agents and doesn't bother to tell it's readers that he is the KKK leader.

    There are an enormous amount of allies in the big lie against Israel.

    It's difficult to challenge this community but whenever possible

    questions should be asked.

    As for "Sam Basile"

    I think the people have right to know more about this film maker and what if any truth or lies he may have. Reporters should go back to Cerrtios, CA at his home located near Frontier Park on the 12600 block of Park Street. south of 166th Street and Bloomfield Avenue until they get all the answers. This is also part of free speech.

  40. Bazla Sumbul says:

    I don't understand why people try their hands on something they don't know. If you want to hate something atleast know it well. To condemn with half known facts is grave foolishness. If they only knew how much grave sin they are committing. Anyways muhammad(saw) is real, his teachings are real and above all islam is real and that's what these people can't digest. Now let Allah make a decision for them. And I pray that Allah forgives you because otherwise the punishment will be…………..

  41. Abu Mukaddas says:

    There is a concept of “New World Order" and the dark conspiracy of illuminati- the ZIONS. They are making things happened as their plan and this is one their plan. There will be every effort to diminish Muslims (i,e actual Muslims but not fanatics terrorists) and make the clear ground for Anti-Christ to come. After 9/11, New world order is established partially; but you will they will implement many of their plans gradually by fueling fanatic/extremist Muslims (most of them indulge in most anti-social activities in their daily life- drugging, extra-marital sexual relations, robbery etc.). So if you see those strayed Muslims are killing innocent people to show anger against a member of Anti-Christ (Satan), then you should realize it that Satan/Anti-Christ/Zion planning are getting true face. There are big wars inevitable as Zion’s are always active around you. Notably, one thing should be realized here that every Jew is not a Zion or A Zion need not be a Jew. May Allah save us from the big conspiracy of Anti-Christ- "Dajjal"

  42. Anya Khan says:

    You seriously need mental help. Conspiracy is one thing but you are sick

  43. Liad Bar-el says:

    “I don't understand why people try their hands on something they don't know.”
    Probably for the same reason that you are trying your hands on something that you don’t know.

    “If you want to hate something atleast know it well.”
    Are you saying that you know the writings of Jews well enough to hate them? Even your prophet mohammed plagiarized the Jewish Tamud incorrectly; yet, he hated the Jews without knowing their teachings well.

    “To condemn with half known facts is grave foolishness.”
    Please see comment above.

    “If they only knew how much grave sin they are committing.”
    Please see comment above for not knowing what you and your prophet are condemning will likewise not know the gravity of the sins as well.

    “Anyways muhammad(saw) is real, his teachings are real and above all islam is real and that's what these people can't digest.”
    Once again, copied truth from the Jewish Talmud does not make it true for when it is distorted, it becomes false altogether.

    “Now let Allah make a decision for them. And I pray that Allah forgives you because otherwise the punishment will be…………..”
    You’re telling your god what to do and what the punishment (curse) should be? I’ll teach you a tiny bit of the Jewish teachings……… that one has to be without a doubt a completely righteous person to place a curse on another otherwise that very curse will come on his/her own head.

  44. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Allah Promised the Land of Israel to the Jews
    Al Israa 17: 104 And We said thereafter to the Children of Israel "Dwell securely in the land (of promise)":
    *** Allah, in very clear Arabic, asserts that he fulfilled his promise to reward the People of Israel with the Promised Land, the same land that the later conquering hordes of Muhammadan Arabs claim as exclusively theirs CONTRARY to their own Quran ***
    Al Baqara 2: 40 O Children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favor which I bestowed upon you and fulfill your covenant with Me as I fulfill My covenant with you and fear none but Me.
    Al Baqara 2: 47 O Children of Israel! call to mind the (special) favor which I bestowed upon You and that I preferred you above the whole world
    Al Baqara 2: 122 O Children of Israel! call to mind the special favor which I bestowed upon you and that I preferred you above the whole world.
    Al Dukhan 44: 30 We did deliver aforetime the Children of Israel from humiliating Punishment

    31 Inflicted by Pharaoh for he was arrogant (even) among inordinate transgressors.

    32 And We chose them aforetime above all the nations knowingly
    Al Jathiyah 45: 16 “We did aforetime grant to the Children of Israel the Book (Torah), the Power of Command and Prophethood; We gave them for Sustenance things good and pure; and We favored them above all the nations”
    Believers & Unbelievers, please be aware, that the Quran, in verse after verse, repeatedly and unambiguously asserts, that it was Allah & ONLY Allah who did the Choosing, contrary to the Hatemongering declarations by anti Jews, that it is the RACIST & ARROGANT Israelites and Jews who declare themselves the Chosen People ***
    Al Sajda 32: 23 We did indeed aforetime give the Book (Torah) to Moses: be not then in doubt of its reaching (thee): and We made it a guide to the Children of Israel.
    *** Allah is telling the followers of Muhammad that he gave the Torah ONLY to the People of Israel as a guide ***
    Al Mu’min 40: 53 We did aforetime give Moses the (Book of) Guidance
    and We gave the Book (Torah) in inheritance to the Children of Israel.
    *** “We gave the Book (Torah) in inheritance to the Children of Israel” means to them & their generations AFTER them ***
    And the last (but not least) GEM:
    Al Maida 5: 21 "O my people! enter the holy land which Allah hath assigned unto you and turn not back ignominiously for then will ye be overthrown to your own ruin."
    It is obvious that Muhammad did not realize that his loose-leaf notes had fully captured and preserved – though somewhat scrambled up from the more ancient accounts – actually verifying with detailed accounts, that the Israelites and the Jews had lived many centuries before him, settled and made their homeland as a nation in the very state of modern Israel & territories that have since been restored. These are the very lands that his followers absurdly deny had ever previously belonged to anyone else but themselves?
    In conclusion, based upon all the above, it is crystal clear, that contrary to the untested beliefs of hundreds of millions of Muhammadan Muslims in the world today, their Quran in fact, fully supports and verifies the claims of the Jews for the land of Israel as their ancient and rightful home and nation.

    Thus in a nutshell, the Quran is Zionist.

  45. Yehuda Cohen says:

    Back to the future, Islams low cost universal health care.

    Mohammad recommended drinking camel urine for healthy vim and viga; (Sahih Bukhari, Ablutions (Wudu'), Volume 1, Book 4, Number 234); so, he must have drank plenty of camel urine in his time. If a drink is a mans measure (shaken gin for bond) then camel piss is what we should measure Mohammad by. This camel urine nonsense is so obviously a cult practice, there should be no illusion of what Islam is, it's a dangerous cult masquarading as religion of peace, even know it all Obama bought into the religion of peace hypocrisy.

  47. Bazla Sumbul says:

    For comment no.1 Prophet Mohammad(saw) didn't denied Jews or Musa(a.s). All he said was that it was a yester truth and had been changed and the truth was again brought to them in the form of Quran which he wanted them to accept,which of course you didn't do. We are not hating you,we still want that you revert to islam and come to straight path. May Allah bless you. And i am not telling Allah what to do(Astaghfirullah). I am just praying that He forgives you. Who am i to order Allah… He is the Almighty.

  48. Bazla Sumbul says:

    For comment no.2 Well you yourself must have read so you should know that bestowed means past tense. Jews were bestowed because Allah favoured them,granted them everything they wanted but what did they do in return. They disregarded Musa(a.s),disregarded teachings of Allah and so the curse of Allah Almighty fell on them. May you follow the straight path.

  52. You'd better stop drinking that camel urine, sweety. Even your clothes look like it.

  53. I was not comparing throwing rocks to attacking the embassy. I mentioned that as something that could be included in an anti-Jewish movie to make Jews in general appear intolerant. For that reason, piecing together various incidents into a movie slamming some religious group or other is not all that hard to do and it is unlikely to make a positive impression on rational people. Since I wrote the comment above it has become known that Jews had nothing to do with the production of the movie. I am glad for that because the movie does not reflect very well on those who made it. Nevertheless, I defend the right to make such movies. The movie itself was a protest against persecution of the Coptic Christians in Egypt. I understand why they want to protest. But I doubt it will end up helping them. Also, I doubt that very many Coptic Christians wanted to protest this way. But, perhaps we all should try to turn it into something positive anyway by writing to Obama and other politicians asking them to try to stop the persecution of Christians that is going on in various parts of the world.
