“Libya” from “Daybreak: After Attacks, Israeli Filmmaker Hides”, By Adam Chandler|September 12, 2012 9:00 AM, “The Tablet”

What creates such hate and fear in any human that would lead him to incite hate, fear and violence, leading to murder and potential planetary war?

As America prepared for the anniversary of  “September 11,” re-living, re-wounding and ruminating over the events of eleven years ago – Watching the repeats of every conceivable video ever created of that morning in 2001 – another attack, by “Americans” this time, against peace and the planet was well underway.

A video, released on You Tube, “created” by a fantasized “filmmaker” named “Sam Bacile” (or “Youssef M Basseley” according to the call put out by Pharoah Voice, Inc” in 2011 , now determined to be Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, convicted felon, acting out his blood-lust and hate, or any number of people who have been flushed out of the gutter on this sleazy promotion of world wide “snuff”) and his friends carried out an attack of  its own –  The release of the video called “Innocence of Muslims” in an attempt to create rage throughout the volatile and newly formed nation states from the “Arab Spring.”

Whether the “riots” and “protests” in Egypt, Libya, Yemen and breaking out throughout the Islamic world, are pre-planned, using the film as an excuse or motivator in order to set off unrest and divisiveness, the result is the same.  That end result is bloodshed, fear, anger and hate.

Islamophobia is alive and thriving in America…………….

And they are winning the War on peace and freedom.

This poorly made schlock masquerading as “film” was a scam from the outset.  A “company” set up in 2011 under Youssef Bassley, a dubious character - convicted fraudster - who promoted a Casting Call in August of last year for his “film”, “Desert Warrior”.

The Call:

“NOW CASTING SAG and NON SAG ACTORS for “DESERT WARRIOR.” Director Alan Roberts.

Historical desert drama set in Middle East. Indie Feature film shoots 18 days in L.A. in August. Studio and backlot locations.

Male Roles: DR. MATTHEW (Lead): Middle Eastern Pharmacist, 40-50, intelligent, family man; GEORGE (Lead); 40-50, Middle Eastern warrior leader, romantic, charismatic; YOUNG GEORGE (featured) 18-22; PRIEST (featured): 60-70, bearded; ABDO (featured), 60-70, Elder tribe leader; ISRAELI MEN 30-50 (featured); WARRIORS (featured) 18-50, Various Middle Eastern types, bearded.

Female Roles: CONDALISA (featured) 40, attractive, successful, strong willed; HILLARY (featured) 18 but must look younger, petite; innocent; YOUSTINA (featured) 16-18, Daughter of doctor; MIDDLE EASTERN WOMEN (Various Featured Roles) 18-40, attractive, exotic; OLDER WOMAN (featured) 60-70, feisty.

Please place Role desired in SUBJECT: line of email.
Indicate SAG or NON-SAG”

The actors were duped into believing the script was about a lead character named “George” but, upon release, they found their 18 days on back lots and with poorly produced cheap green screen, produced a piece of historic revisionism that even Leni Riefenstahl and her mentor, Josef Goebbels, would have found pathetic.

But like the work of Riefenstahl, this film had a purpose and that purpose was to enrage and inflame, unifying people behind a message derived from spinning history into the most heinous and fantastic lie possible in order to promote the subject as a warring, thieving pedophile – The signature of the Religious zealots and islamophobes of the world….

TREATING  the religion of Islam exactly as Goebbels treated Islam’s sister “of the Book”, Judaism

That fantastic fiction in immature and unprofessional video-making is exactly the type of vitriolic pap promoted by the likes of Neo-conservative Islamophobe,  former Project for a New American Century Founding “Father” and founder of Center for Security Policy, Frank Gaffney and his proteges in paranoia, Representative Michele Bachman (R-MN) and  Representative Louis Gohmert (R-TX) promoting their current Muslim Witch Hunt;   promoted by the propagandists at “WikiIslam”; pushed by the likes of Neo-Conservative, PNAC member, former Bush-ite and misogynist anti-Muslim xenophobe, John Bolton, Pamela Geller (and her love-child the Anti-Mosque campaign as well as her continued hate-mongering in print and on FOX), Anti-Muslim, self proclaimed “Christian” activist Steve Klein and his band of paranoid xenophobes, Terry Jones - the preacher of hate and divisiveness (who ran out to LA to be in the limelight of like-kind);  and a host of other hate-mongers slithering out from the filthy recesses of fear,  hate and narcissism to promote their “American Exceptionalism”.

The film was met with little response in the US but, in the world already shaken with the newness of people standing their ground against oppressive regimes; in  lands still building from the people’s revolution against horrendous, torturous and corrupt regimes, it is the perfect vehicle to incite destruction. Al-Qaeda is on the run but not gone and they are not giving up without a fight; Extremists in every Middle Eastern country are jockeying for a foothold just like the rest of the people trying for a “voice”.

Now we hear that poor little producer is on the run and afraid of retaliation.  He is claiming “he is not responsible” for the slaughter of a strong, determined and peaceful man who accepted the job of assisting Libya to develop a government free of Quadaffi; He isn’t “to blame” for the murder  and destruction that is breaking out across North Africa and the middle east.

Ain’t that somethin’.

Nope, not responsible for the perfect propaganda piece expressing nothing but hate and lies in order to promote hate and lies.

Unfortunately, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula’s  denials aren’t going to work with anyone with 2 brain cells that can still create a synapse, and knowing that your ideologue’s porno piece was meant for the sole purpose of inciting hate, but you are not the only one responsible for the events that butchered 4 Americans in Benghazi, to include Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens,  and dozens of Libyans or for the set off riots in the streets across the Middle East.

The US has its own role in this history in the making. We are responsible for our actions against Iran as early as 1953; actions against Iraq; support of repression and oppression throughout the planet; the use of extraordinary rendition against thousands of private citizens in other countries;  use of torture to set intelligence and create a false paradigm;  use of Guantanamo and Bagram to imprison innocent men, women and children who become a “threat” or are used to create a “perceived threat” to “national security”; and  refusal to hold those people accountable who are guilty of crimes against humanity……..

More importantly,  each and every American is responsible  for allowing people,  who are no more than narcissists promoting fear and bigotry, to have a role in this government of the people; to give them forum for spewing the most evil kind of hate; and for denying our actions against others.

In light of our 11th anniversary of 9/11 as well as the election of the 45th president of the United States, isn’t it time for all of us  to be accountable?

    John, you are despicable. Our own Christian Bible has many stories of such marriages, taking of concubines, polygamist marriages, brothers and sisters in incestuous relationships and yes, many of those concerned male prophets. That was then and this is now. Such goings on are flatly against the mores of this modern society but as for other nations, they have their own mores. I fear you act and think within the Christian idea that only you and God are correct and often you secretly fear God has it wrong. Ugh. As the mother of a child molested by a pedophile, I detest such actions in our own society, but there I draw the line. Judge not lest ye be judged by the same judgement with which you judge others. You sir are a rabble rouser of the first order. If we as a nation, and Christian as a religion want to be respected we can accomplish that not with war and vile words but with treating everyone as we would like to be treated. If you want respect for this nation we much earn it and 2000-2008 we’ve done precious little to create respect. President Obama has tried to express our national regrets for our shameful actions in attacking a nation which had nothing to do with 9/11 but the big mouths of people like you undo all that with a few ugly words. You make me ashamed.

  • John

    For those who said this is a stupid poorly written article, yes that’s what it is. The author titles her blog as “RANTINGS of a MAD woman” (caps are hers).

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Lee-Foley/508663794 Michael Lee Foley

    Perhaps I am stupid (just kidding, I am fucking brilliant) but I don’t get this sort of mentality.

    Violence is NOT a sane or normal reaction to a movie. For anyone. Ever.

    Muslim radicals are not exempt because ‘they’re Muslims radicals.’

    Christians didn’t kill people over Last Temptation of Christ, Jews didn’t slaughter ambassadors over Jud Süß, Hindus haven’t destroyed buildings over Apu and the Simpsons spoofing the Hindu gods, pagans don’t kill people over The Wicker Man or the Craft or movies based on various pantheons (Thor, Troy) etc, etc. Not even $cientology has killed anyone who parodies it, even though it’s severely lampooned everywhere.

    It simply isn’t an acceptable way of reacting. Was this movie’s intent to ‘incite hate’?

    Probably. So?

    These people could have taken the higher road. They could have said, “You will mock our prophet, but we will simply shake our heads, sigh, and get on with our lives, like every other religious person in the world does when people mock their prophets, be they Moses, Christ, L. Ron Hubbard, Joseph Smith, or anything else.”

    They didn’t. And THAT is the difference.

    • Cosmic Surfer

      Do you understand the concept of personal responsibility? How about social responsibility? “Christians didn’t kill over the “Last Temptation of Christ”…Was it used as a propaganda piece?
      By the way, there were threats against the producer, the studio and the actors as well as vandalism and destruction because of the film.
      There was even the same response over “Jesus Christ Superstar” when it came out.

      It is irrelevant what YOU think about the response, there is a response that is set off by the refusal to be responsible or accept responsibility for one’ s actions.
      Facts are facts and responsibility is UNDENIABLE. No one said that the rioters are not responsible for their actions but we ALL are responsible for the bed from which those riots sprung. Our action and our inaction, our denial and our refusal to be accountable for that which is done in our name. THE ONLY people accepting responsibility in the entire incident are the few Muslims standing against the rioters in protection of others.

      YOUR country still slaughters, tortures, renditions, holds innocents for years in cages, abuses, destroys homes, farms and land across the planet

      Let me ask you, what have you done to confront the ignorance (willful and otherwise) and the fear that has allowed for our acceptance of war crimes done in OUR name? What have you done to confront the systematic abuse of people for their religion and their genetic make up? What have YOU done to stop the idiocy committed by YOUR government since we became imperialistic? Korea? VietNam? Iraq? Iran? Afghanistan, Pakistan, Syria? Yemen? Egypt? Morocco? Libya? Nicaragua? Panama? Costa Rica? Bolivia? Peru? Puerto Rico? Philippines? Guam? Samoa? Hawaii? Alaska? California? Texas? Colorado? Florida? Manhattan?

      YOU are as responsible for the actions of this government as I am responsible for the actions of this government . YOU are responsible for your inaction and YOUR denial…..Me, I choose to write and scream and fight and get called names by irresponsible people afraid of being responsible and refusing to accept anything remotely related to responsibility for their thought, speech or deeds.

      The only way to BE free is to accept responsibility for EVERY action across the planet and my part in it. The only way one deserves FREE SPEECH is acceptance of the consequences for it.
      If one is too afraid or immature to accept the consequences or lies about their responsibility to themselves and others doesn’t deserve either free speech or freedom. It is not something bestowed from on high – it is something to be EARNED and protected – held sacrosanct and not abused. Something for which we must all fight on a constant basis and confront those who treat it as something deserved by their sheer exceptionalist and irresponsible existence.

      The producer of the film has proven he isn’t free and never will be because he refuses to be responsible and will always be looking over his shoulder. He treated his freedom like it was bestowed on him because he believes he is exceptional.

      Hubris .
      He never respected it, never earned it and most certainly denies his responsibility just like most of us have chosen to do.
      That hubris will be the death of freedom nation and it is already happening

    Cosmic Surfer is a MUSLIM.

    • To a xenophobe

      And IF she or he is, what does that matter?

      • John

        Cosmic Surfer,
        Yes, it does matter, because only a Muslim would say “the film has incited violence and its now the responsibility of Americans” and putting no blame whatsoever on the violence done by Muslims from Muhammad’s own era to this day of protests against the films.
        Here is what you need to understand: —-> Free speech should be combated with free speech, not with violence and destruction. <—–
        Free 'action', which Muslims are now doing, will only attract opposing free action. Do you think that's ok?

        "newness of people standing their ground against oppressive regimes" – what are you talking about? Are these kinds of violent protests anything new in the Muslim world? Here's some news for you: These things have been done by Muslims since forever.

        Now, you want to see some real incitement of "hate, fear and violence"? Condemn these quotations of the Quran and Hadith and prove that you're not a Muslim.

        ANTISEMITISM: Abu Huraira reported Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews. – Sahih Muslim 41-6985

        HATRED AGAINST HOMOSEXUALS: It was narrated by Jaabir (may Allah be pleased with him): "The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him) said: There is nothing I fear for my ummah more than the deed of the people of Loot." – Tirmidhi, 1457

        PREACHING HATE: Narrated AbuDharr: The Prophet (peace be upon him) said:
        The best of the actions is to love for the sake of Allah and to hate
        for the sake of Allah. – Abu Dawud 40-4582

        SLAUGHTER OF 900 DEFENSELESS JEWS: The Jews were made to come down, and Allah’s Messenger imprisoned them. Then the Prophet went out into the marketplace of Medina, and he had trenches dug in it. He sent for the Jewish men and had them beheaded in those trenches. They were brought out to him in batches. They numbered 800 to 900 boys and men. (this is the famous Banu Qurayza story and you can find it on Wikipedia)

        RACISM AGAINST BLACK PEOPLE: Narrated Anas bin Malik: Allah's Apostle said, "You should listen to and obey, your ruler even if he was an Ethiopian (black) slave whose head looks like a raisin." – Sahih Bukhari 9-89-256
        This one should be personal to you, I believe. Also know that Muhammad owned many slaves.

        LOOTING AND PLUNDERING OF CARAVANS BY MUHAMMAD: Expeditions Led by Allah’s Messenger: In this year, according to all Sira writers, the Messenger personally led the Ghazwa of Alwa. [A Ghazwa is an Islamic Invasion in Allah’s Cause consisting of an army unit led by the Prophet himself.] He left Sa’d in command of Medina. On this raid his banner was carried by Hamzah. He stayed out for fifteen days and then returned to Medina. The Messenger went on a Ghazwa at the head of two hundred of his companions in October, 623 and reached Buwat. His intention was to intercept a Quraysh caravan with a hundred men and twenty-five hundred camels. – Al-Tabari Vol. VII page 15

        WIFE BEATING: Speaking of incitement to violence, Quran 4:34 ask a man to beat his wife if she doesn't obey him.
        You're a woman so you should be aware of the countless anti-women teachings of Islam. But you're not going to say anything about that or the things I quoted above, because you may actually be a Muslim. If you're not, then admit that these are bad things in Islam. You already believe that "without women there is no revolution", so I want you to stand with women and show your clear opposition to misogynistic teachings of Islam.

        The concept of Islamophobia is invalid. Please look it up in Wikipedia. For that matter, you have "America Phobia", "free speech phobia" and "Islam criticism phobia". Criticism of something doesn't mean the person is "phobic".
        For example, multiple Sahih hadiths record the fact that Muhammad married
        9 year old Aisha when he was 54. That makes him a pedophile. I'm sure
        you would not want your own 9 year old daughter marrying a 54 year old
        man. As mentioned before, by pointing this out I don't become an
        "Islamophobe". Only Muslims will make excuses for something like this.

        So please prove that you're not a Muslim by condemning these incidents in Islamic history. And remember, Muhammad is the role model for all flavors of Muslims, from moderates to terrorists.

        Jesus has been made fun of MANY times and yet we don't see Christians violently protesting. Why is that? Why does Muhammad deserve special treatment?

        Give a rational response, prove you're not a Muslim and that you support women's rights. Also give me your thoughts about the teachings of Islam I've pointed out here.
        "I don't have to prove anything to anyone" is a typical expected response, which is what I predict you will say or some other similar non-response.
        You can be happy though that I will not be debating here for long but may be checking this page for the next few days to see if you have a response.

        Thank you
        John

          “Yes, it does matter, because only a Muslim would say….”

          No it really doesn’t. Only a far right wing xenophobic republican would make that statement. From what I know of Cosmic, she’s more of a Buddhist – not that it matters either way.

          ….”
          Yes, it does matter, because only a Muslim would say ‘the film has incited violence and its now the responsibility of Americans’ and putting no blame whatsoever on the violence done by Muslims from Muhammad’s own era to this day of protests against the films.

          Free 'action', which Muslims are now doing, will only attract opposing free action. Do you think that's ok?"

          1) your entire premise is based on your chosen refusal to read and comprehend what was stated. 2) The statement, "the film has incited violence and its now the responsibility of Americans" does not appear in the article and it has never been stated by anyone here, more specifically, never stated by me. You have invalidated your entire screed by implying…. No by actually lying about what was stated in the article. You have chosen to lie at the out set as you lie by pretending to be multiple people on this thread; as you lie about knowing anything about me.
          These aren't "misspeaks" nor are they "misunderstandings". They are bald-faced lies in order to promote your ideology, nay, dogma, that is based entirely on faulty and willfully ignorant assumptions you make..3) Your entire refusal to address issues as stated but, instead, focus on your own defense mechanism of deflection shows your own, denial of responsibility for yourself, your behavior and your fearful, bigotry. A cosmic-surfer-does-not-do-as-i-do-or-express-as-i-feel-or-believe-as-ME-therefore-she-must-be-a-muslim belies the actual truth of you. You have bared "your filthy heart to me" (Shriekback) and the rest of the world.
          Everything stated by you heretofore is either a lie, based on a lie or a rant to justify your lie or a deflection from awareness of your lie and lying by "look-over-there"….see-see-see-she-is-a-muslim in order to deny the facts.

          I can go all day stating the verifiable facts but that isn't what you want.

          You want a forum for your proof of exceptionalism
          You want a fight to prove your sanctimony.
          You want to argue in order to promote your dogmatic delusion
          You want to justify your hate and fear
          You want to lie to yourself and the world in order to promote divisiveness, hate, anger and instill more bigotry in order to justify your perceived existence.

          And you want to show the planet you are not responsible for yourself or anything else because you believe you don't have to be.
          Unfortunately, everyone is responsible its whether or not they act out in immature, narcissistic denial or accept it with insightful intelligence and mature grace.

          So far, I see you have chosen the former, not the latter

            Cosmic Surfer, Muhammad married a 9 year old girl when he was 54 and had sex with her. Are you afraid of calling him a pedophile?

                Muhammad married a 9 year old girl when he was 54. That makes him a pedophile. What are your comments about that?
                Speaking of free speech, it looks like I’m not allowed to do that here since my previous post was removed. I guess if I’m offended by your free speech, I have the right to burn down your house. Is that correct?

    This article is just REALLY poorly written. I mean, the only clever thing about it is the title, which the author didn’t even write himself. And what’s it advocating anyway? Taking away free speech in the US? No thanks. If we’re going to have the Internet, everyone has to be less easily offended, or we’re all screwed.

    • flubaluba

      Freedom of speech does not allow anyone the right to incite violence, the people behind this movie must be arrested and charged with the killing of 4 American citizens and however many Libyans , maybe even be sent to Libya for trial , to show the Middle east that America does not support this type of spreading of hatred. With freedom of speech come a great responsibility to use that freedom carefully, if not , face the consequences.

      And if Political parties are found to be behind this movie for political gain, those involved must be held on charges of treason and be put to death as soon as possible to not only send a message to the Middle east but to send a message to those that believe they can just do whatever they want with no repercussions..

        Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. is credited with a quote by Zechariah Chafee “Your right to swing your arms ends just where the other man’s nose begins.” The latter also said “Speech should be fruitful as well as free.” He POed Joseph McCarthy, which is a glowing endorsement for me.

    • John

      Free speech is given because it is assumed the person on the receiving end is not nuts enough to start violence and destruction as a reaction. This is only how animals behave. This is not civilized behavior.
      Non-Muslims have NO responsibility for these riots, whatsoever – 0.00%. For the real truth about Islam and the spirit of Muslims, see the quotes I have below.

  • Geniushead

    Seriously, you are an idiot. With hundreds of millions of people in the U.S., there will be quite a few idiots like yourself, unfortunately some who will make meaningless, stupid, offensive movies. Violent reaction to these idiots are nothing more than a pathetic excuse. The movie had little to do with the violence in the first place – think drone and 9/11 anniversary (if you believe it is a coincidence, you’re even more of an idiot than I thought).

    • Cosmic Surfer

      A concept lost – responsibility for one’s actions. Oh, sorry. Someone who has as a first response, (while hiding behind a claim of “geniushead” and using the anonymity of at least one wall if not multiple to protect “identity”) is adolescent name calling, might not comprehend the idea of personal responsibility not to mention social responsibility.. Nothing is unique and isolated by its uniqueness.
      One is free to do and act and say anything as long as one is willing to accept the consequences, willingly, and with thoughtful awareness and comprehension.
      You most certainly prove a refusal to understand. You choose not to be responsible therefore allowing others not to be responsible.
      You have proven this by the mere fact that you chose to attack instead of question, assume instead of comprehend and become defensive instead of reflect.I did my job and made my point, eliciting your response, as you did yours, responding as one could expect from one who is, apparently, unfamiliar with the concept of responsibility
      The knee jerk response and denial is exactly the point and you proved it beautifully. Sorry if it flew too high to be caught

      • John

        “hiding behind a claim of “geniushead” and using the anonymity” – So you’re using an anonymous username yourself and are making this allegation on others? Your reply to Geniushead has no utility. You too might be using other usernames. Can you prove you’re not? Therefore you cannot make ‘anonymous username’ allegations on others.

      You’re talking about yourself right? We live in a very globally interconnected world. The words, or hate speech in this case, of one man can have grave consequences in other parts of the world. The assassination of the prime minister of Austria by some twerp caused WWI. It really doesn’t take much to set the world ablaze.

      Even though it’s a video game, there’s a quote from ‘Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 3′ I like to use: “This world is a tinderbox. All it takes is one man to light a match.” -Capt. Price

        The difference is, angry Muslims actively sought out this film on the Internet, then watched it and became outraged. It wasn’t being broadcast on their television. It wasn’t being shown in public. It was on the damn Internet. If I stumble onto a site with hairy old man fetish porn, and I get offended, it’s still MY fault for clicking that link, or not looking at the URL first or whatever. It’s not the web site’s fault for putting up content that offends me. This is how the Internet has to work. There’s no other way.
