Anti-Islam Movie ‘Innocence of Muslims’ Sparks Attack That Kills US Ambassador In Libya

The Middle East is in uproar today after the US Embassy in Libya was bombed and the US ambassador, Christopher Stevens, was among those killed. The attack was apparently part of a protest against an obscure film, “Innocence of Muslims,” directed by California-based Israeli Sam Bacile and allegedly financed to the tune of $5 million dollars by Jewish supporters. There’s little doubt that the film is blasphemous so far as Muslims are concerned and will likely be offensive to most non-Muslims. It also appears to be an incredibly bad piece of filmmaking based on the trailer below.

    This sounds like another bunch of crazies…like the Colorado theatre massacre, some people are just pure crazy and use any excuse to murder innocent people. There’s NO excuse.

    Lybia’s president should PUBLICLY denounce this terrorist act on innocent American’s that have done nothing but HELP LYBIA…we need to STOP giving American’s taxpayers dollars to them NOW!

      Then you certainly won’t mind when my comedy about the Holocaust, “Don’t Empty that Ashtray, That’s my Bube!” comes out on Youtube, will you?.

      Those wacky, fun-loving SS guards, Hans and Fritz, turn Auschwitz upside-down with their lovable Teutonic concern for hygiene among the guests. There’s plenty of hot water in the showers to go around and with the ovens blazing 24/7 no one ever gets chilly at night.FREEDOM OF SPEECH IN THE USA! USA! USA! If ya don’t like it, move to Israel!

    Israel is hellbent on fomenting a regional war.  I just pray we have enough clear heads in our government and military to resist this potential global disaster.

      So you say the action of a few Muslims speaks for the actions of all? only a little while ago Christians were killing people under the pretense of being a which. Even further back they were killing anyone who disagreed with them, before that they themselves were being killed for being Christians.

  7. This movies looks hilariously bad!  I want to see it!

    The US should stop agitating regime change in some cases, propping up other regimes, giving billions in military aid, and selling weapons in the region.  The United States is the number 1 destabilizing factor in the region.  

    If Israel were not getting billions from the US, allowed to purchase advanced weapons systems, and given a slap on the hand when they got caught stealing the few things we won’t sell them, then maybe they’d have a reason to actually pursue the peace process.

    The disaster of who we sell weapons to, which regimes we support, which regimes we bomb, only bites us in the ass in the end.  Who funds and supports Islamic radicalism?  The Saudis.  Yemen.  But we’ve got a boner for getting Gaddafi out of power after he’s been isolated for decades.  

    But oh well.  Both US foreign and military policy will continue to be dedicated to support most favorable conditions for commerce for the oligarchs, rather than pursuing stability or human rights or anything else that would make sense.  

  9. Who invented Christianity and Islam? Same people. 
    Why did they do it? To divide and conquer.

  10. That religion bullshit sure gets people stirred up, huh?

  15. SneakyGuy | Sep 12, 2012 at 1:25 pm |

    Let’s try reverse psychology.  Name one other religion practiced today where followers will make violent protests (and kill innocent people) when one independent filmmaker criticizes the religion?  Could it be that the PURPOSE of this film was to prove its own premise by virtue of the reaction to it following its release?  Perhaps what this world needs is a group of violent secular people … who will violently protest against those who would mandate that people think like they do – or kill them if they don’t.

  16. coiled embrace | Sep 12, 2012 at 1:51 pm |

    Perhaps, someone should throw a trailer up on Youtube for a film depicting what an absolute hilarious and justifiable comedy the Holocaust was, and we can sit back and watch the Israelis and Jews in general go total apeshit over it and we can smugly pontificate about the glory and virtues of free speech and how people are so overly sensitive about religion and culture?

  17. DeepCough | Sep 12, 2012 at 2:29 pm |

    This movie looks like it was produced by Tommy Wiseau (director of “The Room”).

    This has Israeli false flag attack written all over it.

    The U.S.S Liberty

    The Mavi Manara
    The Lavon Affair

    How many times does Israel get to murder Americans or steal our military intelligence through it’s extensive U.S. based spy networks and still remain our “ally”?

    • AIPAC sucks | Sep 12, 2012 at 9:30 pm |

      And don’t forget to add 9-11 WTC to that list of Israeli false flag attacks.

      • I’m willing to believe it was a false flag, but I’ll need to see some evidence it was Israeli.

          • Marklar_Prime | Sep 14, 2012 at 2:26 pm |

            Israel needs U.S. and European backing for an insane Iran attack that will be the start of WW3. Who else would benefit from fanning the flames of Islamaphobia?

          • First of all, fanning the flames of Islamophobia wasn’t the only result of 9/11–support for global finance capitalism grew, as that’s what the WTC was a symbol of.  Second, lots of people benefit from Islamophobic fear mongering–multinational corporations and governments wanting to crack down on citizens’ rights in the name of security are two examples.  The military/industrial and prison/industrial complexes benefit greatly.

            Even so, motive is not proof of guilt.

        • lifobryan | Sep 13, 2012 at 3:02 pm |

          I suspect someone else’s fingerprints are on this. Not the production of the film, which was made a while ago – but the timing of its dub into Arabic, and its viral dissemination by “Reverend” Terry Jones.

          Jones is a nutwack with a thirst for fanning the flames of mob violence to ‘prove’ his points about Islam. Why fan the flames now? The film has been around for at least a year. Was Jones “nudged?”

          Karl Rove has a history of whispering small but insidious suggestions into the ears of the willing & unsavory … with an uncanny timing that usually produces big results. Rove has been obsessed with casting Barack Obama in the role of Jimmy Carter for this US election cycle. And wouldn’t it be convenient for that narrative if ever-percolating middle east protests resulted in a well-timed hostage crisis?

          OK, I’m just kidding, I don’t believe that at all … I’m just pitching my plot idea for a new conspiracy-themed block-buster movie, starring Obama as Jimmy Carter, Mitt Romney as Ronald Reagan’s hair, and Nicholas Cage as the rumpled guy who solves the mystery.  

          But here’s the plot twist … it’s not a conspiracy movie at all, it’s a PORNO!!

          The film ends with a sweaty, flabby 3-way between Karl Rove, Benjamin Netanyahu, and Sheldon Adelson playing rusty trombones in a Tel Aviv waterbed.

          Oh yeah, I forgot to mention, the role of Rev Jones will be played by Julian Beck:

             You forgot Glen Beck returns to the silver screen now also to add his twisted-tongued narration to the flavor.

  20. Sonnenritter | Sep 12, 2012 at 3:39 pm |

    Theres no reason to suspect this event was ‘planned’ by some government or intelligence agency. If it was Mossad, then why does the movie look so fucking shitty? This shit looks worse than most student films, I’m surprised it cost 5 million dollars to make. If it was a deliberate provocation by an intelligence agency they would’ve hired actors and filmmakers who aren’t incompetent retards.

    • Tchoutoye | Sep 12, 2012 at 7:43 pm |

      It looks like $4 million was spent on prostitutes and cocaine and $0.9 million on the publicity campaign to make sure that Muslims all over the world have heard about it.

  21. let the Muslims make an anti Jebus movie
    and let’s see what the reaction of the X-ians is

    on the other hand
    there’s something fishy about all this
    there hasn’t been a killing of a US Ambassador since the late 70’s

    how does the ever paranoid Homeland allow
    its Ambassadors to be exposed to this type of danger
    most US embassies are heavily armed fortresses
    that aren’t easily stormed by by lightly armed mobs
    they are also protect by Blackwater/Xi/Gestapo troops
    here’s a case where 1 + 1 = not 2

    • Hadrian999 | Sep 12, 2012 at 11:20 pm |

      the lightly armed mob was using heavy weapons, it’s not that hard, most embassies don’t have huge amounts of security troops and from what i have been reading this guy was a security nightmare that liked to go out among the locals……all this could have been prevented by remembering the 80’s or reading this http://instereo92087.tripod.com/indiansnake.html

      • Ever been to a US Embassy?
        I’m familiar with the ones in Phnom Penh & Beijing
        those fortresses are located in countries that have a very low level of threat
        so I imagine the Embassy in Baghdad and other hot spots
        are even more heavily fortified

        Lydia strikes me as even more dangerous than Baghdad at this point
        the security lapse is questionable
        but given the lack of Homeland security during 911, not out of the question

        > most embassies don’t have huge amounts of security troops
        yeah right
        here’s something from NPR/CIA about that
        http://www.npr.org/2011/12/27/144198497/no-u-s-troops-but-an-army-of-contractors-in-iraq
        > have been reading this guy was a security nightmare that liked to go out among the locals
        yeah right

        • Hadrian999 | Sep 12, 2012 at 11:49 pm |

          yes i have but fortresses are useless if they arent staffed right and reinforced properly. you can see conspiracies behind conspiracies if you want but things like this can happen.  especially if the top diplomats interfere with the security people as has been known to happen. if you think an embassy is such a hard target look at what happened to the US embassy in Somalia in 91

          • > look at what happened to the US embassy in Somalia in 91

            that happened 10 years before 911
            so what you’re suggesting is
            Der Homeland Security has learned nothing
            and nothing’s changed since 91
            ok, have yer way

            but it still seems fishy to me
            despite your strong support
            for the idiot security forces idea

          • Hadrian999 | Sep 13, 2012 at 12:05 am |

            according to reports it wasn’t in the embassy it was during evacuation  between the embassy and the airport, it wasn’t a full embassy and there is no mention of any marines being present . the embassy itself wasnt a fortress it was a single story villa

          • Jin The Ninja | Sep 13, 2012 at 12:19 am |

            even in 1st world countries a single story “villa” used as an embassy is a fortified structure. i used to live nearby the korean consulate, and even as consulate it was a heavily fortified, 2 story relatively modest brick structure surrounded by a brick wall, cameras and armed guard.

          • Hadrian999 | Sep 13, 2012 at 12:27 am |

            I’ve had an experience with such an ‘unguarded’ Chinese consulate.  A very smartly dressed, expressionless fellow with mirrored glasses and an earpiece walked briskly out a side door and stood about 20ft away with a clipboard checking something off rather intently.  A curtain parted on the building and there appeared a telephoto lens. 
            The generally effect is that you want to leave.

            hey boss, things seem a little odd with that 911 thingy
            are you crazy, this is as normal as pie
            nothing to see here, just the usual stuff
            go cover the school board, i hear they’re gonna strike

          • Hadrian999 | Sep 13, 2012 at 12:46 pm |

            i think you are barking up the wrong tree, nothing about the attack is remarkable or plausible, if you want to find funny-business take a look at the films producers, if you can find them

          • A point of view can be a dangerous luxury when substituted for insight and understanding.

        • Mike Tomlison | Sep 14, 2012 at 9:59 am |

          It is important to note that this was not an EMBASSY it was a CONSULATE. The embassy in Libya is in Tripoli there is a consulate in Benghazi which was where the attack happened.

          • It’s also important to note that it happened on 9/11, a date the CIA is notorious for it’s lapses in security. Deja vu all over again.

  22. What a fucking mess this world is. I need an espresso. 

  23. BrendanBabbage | Sep 13, 2012 at 1:55 am |

    Did you SEE that video!?

    IMO the Jews/Israel should be punished for it!

    How do I dare say they are to blame, despite their puppet media putting
    out all the Frogwash it’s just radical Christians?

    Well:

    1.  They spend $5 Million on that…  Someone clearly pocketed
    “Donations”.
    2.  The ONE part of “Good” acting was when one of the characters was
    leering greedily over a pot of gold.  That only he was alive with
    passion, the rest was a shadow of anything.

    What we should do is FINE them $40 million.
    Like a day’s US contributions or a weeks worth of the Kosher Tax…

    And have them give it to the people who made such cool movies as
    “DeathStalker”.

    Make a “Decent” so to speak attempt to turn Islam’s prophet into a
    “Conan the Barbarian” sword and sandal type.  Get a guy who looks like
    Lou Ferrignio and crudely dye his hair red, put on a fake huge mole on
    his back, and have him hack and slash and go into siezures and hack and
    slash more.  Embellish it, like have when he is destroying the idols in the
    Kaaba one of them is prayed to by a crazed shaman and turns into a big
    dinosaur monster.  Then he flings two sharp hooks on chains at it, it
    lurches launching him into the air, then he slashes it with an axe and
    it sprays blood all over ancient Mecca.

    Gory battles, often in the nude, him covered in blood and guts, his
    awesome manhood shaking…  Eat this Dr. Mahattan!  Raaarrrr! 
    Raaarrrrr!   RRRRaarrgggh!

    Oh, and the WOMEN…  Empty a few strip clubs for a week.  Fill the
    movie with luscious babes in revealing fantasy clothes and have him heap upon them tons and tons
    of … uh…  Prophetic Dictation, yeah…  Umm…  Well, for Ayesha they could contract a wee lassie from “Toddlers in Tiaras” but obviously her
    S— scene would have to be offstage!!!

    If the Jews/Israelis have to make a disgusting movie people die for, let
    it be a GOOD Bad movie…  I mean, those people rioted because of the
    insult to their prophet, but really, aren’t they embarassed they saw
    that!?  I mean “Turkish Star Wars” and “Knight without a Horse” are
    Sooooooo much better.  It’s painful to watch even for someone not of the
    faith of Islam.

    There’s Bad bad bad bad bad like this movie….
    And there’s Good bad, like “DeathStalker”, “The Sword and the Sorceror”
    and Bob Guccione’s “Caligula”…

    Looks like we’re gonna have to wait and see on that one.

  25. The special edition of this film is due out in the spring. It will contain 3 additional hours of low production quality.

    • Auto5734955 | Sep 14, 2012 at 7:27 am |

       I think what he did was a crime against the Muslim faith and that he should be extradited to Mecca for trial.  That would make an example of those who wish to stir up trouble using the exact same thing the Jews call Antisemitism, which is the color of their crying towel. That might teach others to feel the way they wish but to keep it to themselves. 

  27. Chihab Fethi | Sep 15, 2012 at 3:21 am |

    IN my opinion the actors who acts this must be punished because they cause for us  a lot of problems in our society a

    • Didn’t read the part about their lines being overdubbed against their wishes, did you?

  28. Don’t you people see it ?!! THIS MOVIE WAS DONE BY AMERICA ! ONLY TO LIGHT UP THE FLAME AND THE EMOTIONS OF MUSLIMS AND TO SHOW THEIR NEGATIVE SIDE !!! I am ASHAMED of this  !! We should respect them ! As they respect us ! We respect Christianize , Jewish , BUT WHY NOT ISLAM !! ISLAM IS NOT RELIGION OF TERRORISM !!! ISLAM IS A PEACEFUL RELIGION !!
