From Man Who Insulted Muhammad, No Regret
New York Times ^ | 11/26/2012 | SERGE F. KOVALESKI and BROOKS BARNES

Posted on 11/26/2012 7:51:43 AM PST by SeekAndFind

LOS ANGELES — Fuming for two months in a jail cell here, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula has had plenty of time to reconsider the wisdom of making “Innocence of Muslims,” his crude YouTube movie trailer depicting the Prophet Muhammad as a bloodthirsty, philandering thug.

Does Mr. Nakoula now regret the footage? After all, it fueled deadly protests across the Islamic world and led the unlikely filmmaker to his own arrest for violating his supervised release on a fraud conviction.

Not at all. In his first public comments since his incarceration soon after the video gained international attention in September, Mr. Nakoula told The New York Times that he would go to great lengths to convey what he called “the actual truth” about Muhammad. “I thought, before I wrote this script,” he said, “that I should burn myself in a public square to let the American people and the people of the world know this message that I believe in.”

In explaining his reasons for the film, Mr. Nakoula, 55, a Coptic Christian born in Egypt, cited the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood, Tex., as a prime example of the violence committed “under the sign of Allah.” His anger seemed so intense over the years that even from a federal prison in 2010, he followed the protests against the building of an Islamic center and mosque near ground zero in New York as he continued to work on his movie script.

Until now, only the barest details were known about the making of the film that inspired international outrage. Initial reports made it seem as if the film had been thrown together in about a year.

The NY Slimes still continues pushing the big lie. Even the regime has sort of moved past this lie.

IOW, spot on accurately.

If his film instigated ANY violence then certainly “Zero Dark Thirty” MUST be shut down immediately! Just think of the worldwide outage that will happen when America proudly displays on film the murder of one of Islam’s superheroes.

They never arrested the maker of the film Batman that caused the death of many in Colorado.

The guy is in jail ostensibly for a probation violation, but the NYT headline convicts the guy of a sharia-crime.

The "Prophet" Muhammad was a bloodthirsty, philandering thug.

“...After all, it fueled deadly protests across the Islamic world...”

And there, ladies and gentlemen, is proof positive (as if we needed it) of the total sleeze of the NYT.

A more blatant stinking pile of bull Obama does not exist.

Oh wait, I forgot about the White House press releases and the Hillabeast vocal emissions.

Our press demonizes a person who points out the inconsistencies of Islamic fundamentalism as hateful, but promotes anti-Israeli militant activity and decapitation of Christians who simply share their knowledge of God with others.

Reads as though the worldly press tends to be more demonically influenced than those they observe.

There are many things in this world that I dislike, despise and have a wish to have removed, But unlike the irrational and all to common response of isalamic peoples I ague my case and make attemtps to educate or sway by reason not blood shed. The islamic nations that support an and encourage this behavior would be well served to always hope that the peoples of the West continue to act as I do, and not as they do.

Obviously it didn’t, but if it did it would only be an indication of how crazy the Islamic world is.

An islam ‘superhero’ is one who enjoys lying down with children, sodomy, sex with animals and murdering innocents.

Quite a religion the grizzled old pedophile founded.

GAH! Even when Obama ADMITTING IT WAS NOT THE MOVIE, the NY Slimes still cannot stop pushing that lie.

Idiots, the lot of them!

Thanks for posting link to that video. Anybody who hasn’t seen it should take the time to watch it. Also Warner’s other videos.

“it fueled deadly protests”
A sneaky way of saying that the film CAUSED the deaths.
Normal people know what the word CAUSE means. For the left, there is no such thing as a cause and effect relationship, unless it’s something they can use against a Republican.

The British foreign office and its clone, the American state Department have always been pro-Arab. It’s those “dirty Jews,” you know. /s. Despite the Balfour Declaration, the Mandate administration sought to prevent Jewish immigration into Palestiine, even as Arabs flooded into the Mandate from every direction.
