WASHINGTON (AP) -- Federal authorities have identified a Coptic Christian in southern California who is on probation after his conviction for financial crimes as the key figure behind the anti-Muslim film that ignited mob violence against U.S. embassies across the Mideast, a U.S. law enforcement official told The Associated Press on Thursday.
The official said authorities had concluded that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, was behind "Innocence of Muslims," a film that denigrated Islam and the prophet Muhammad and sparked protests earlier this week in Egypt, Libya and most recently in Yemen. It was not immediately clear whether Nakoula was the target of a criminal investigation or part of the broader investigation into the deaths of U.S. Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans in Libya during a terrorist attack.
No one knows who produced the movie and even if he was a $#@!ing Roman Priest, what $#@!ing difference does it make......it's called freedom of speech.
Get over it.
You Islam apologists are sickening slime who seem to be proud of the atrocities these slithering misfits perform in the name of God......they're degenerate baby killers and the scum sucking sewage drinking liberals in the US embrace them.....
...that's Margot?...YES!!!!!...my first ignore on this forum!!!!!...
Granny says, "Dat's right - now throw away the key...
California Man Behind Anti-Muslim Movie Sentenced To Prison November 07, 2012 : A California man behind the anti-Muslim video that sparked widespread protests in the Muslim world has been sentenced to one year in prison for breaching the terms of his probation on a previous offense.
The U.S. District Court in Los Angeles sentenced Mark Basseley Youssef Wednesday after he admitted to four allegations, including the use of false identities and violating the terms of probation for a bank fraud conviction. None of the violations was linked to the content of the movie Innocence of Muslims that parodies Islam's Prophet Muhammad.
Youssef is an Egyptian-born Coptic Christian. He was arrested in late September after going into hiding when the movie he financed enraged Muslims worldwide and led to deadly violence in Libya. He will serve the new sentence in federal prison.
The film depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a thuggish deviant offended many Muslims and sparked a wave of anti-American protests that saw mobs burn U.S. missions, schools and businesses. During one such protest outside the U.S. consulate in Libya's city of Benghazi, members of a radical Islamist group broke into the U.S. compound. Four Americans, including then-U.S. ambassdor to Libya Chris Stevens, were killed in the September 11 violence.
