Who In the World is Sam Bacile?

There’s a bit of a mystery surrounding the identity of Sam Bacile, who has claimed to be an Israeli Jew living in California.

Israel Channel 10‘s Nadav Eyal claims that Sam Bacile is a pseudonym and that the film’s creators are ex-Muslims who converted to Christianity – at least one of them Iranian.

The claim is further strengthened, based on statement in the Wall Street Journal, which leads one to suspect that Egyptian Coptic Christians are involved in the film making.

The movie has been promoted in the U.S. by conservative Coptic Christians, including Morris Sadek, who runs a small group called the National American Coptic Assembly. “The violence that it caused in Egypt is further evidence of how violent the religion and people are and it is evidence that everything in the film is factual,” Mr. Sadek said in a telephone interview from his Washington home.

Tzvi Yeheskeli (Channel 10 Arab Affairs Correspondent) questions if the attack on the consulate in Benghazi is actually just about the film, or also revenge for the recent killing of Al Qaeda number 2 in Yemen.

  1. Investigative Journalists should flush out the truth about this alleged Israeli-American real estate developer, film maker and film fund raiser.

    The WSJ interviewed him and he stated all the above along with Jews backed the movie financially.

    In Israel and in the Israeli Los Angeles community no one has heard of him, there is no trace of him on the internet although all his professions would normally leave an imprint there.

    This film is a huge PR problem for Jews and Israel and there is a good chance his identity is a forgery like the Protocols of Zion.

    Sam Basile is more like Sam Im-basile.

  2. Stewart Nasar says:

    sounds like an im-bacile

  4. Chaiya Eitan says:

    The question is: who first reported this and why publicize that he's Jewish/Israeli if he isn't?

  5. Holly Dazzle says:

    I've figured out Sam Basile is an anagram for "Islam Base", which is another term for al Qaeda… curious…

  6. The latest news is that Sam Bacile is a pseudonym for someone whose middle name is Basella.

    I hope some reporters interview him again to find out why he pretended to be an Israeli and why he made this move.

    He may be contacted in Ceritos, Caliofornia at a residence located south of 166th Street and Bloomfield Avenue.
