Mystery deepens: Coptic Christian behind anti-Prophet film?
Chidanand Rajghatta TNN
Washington: The man described by the Israeli government as an “unspeakable idiot” who made what critics say is an unwatchable anti-Islam film is now trying to be untraceable. Media hounds initially turned up with zilch in a search of public records for ‘Sam Bacile’, whose crude celluloid caricature of the Prophet sparked off violence in the Libya and Egypt.
But the AP zeroed in on a man named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who, while denying he was Sam Bacile, acknowledged a role in managing and providing logistics for the production of the film ‘Innocence of Muslims’ which has agitated Islamists for ridiculing the Prophet and Islam.
While Bacile’s associates said he variously spelled his last name as Basil, Basilee etc, federal court papers showed Nakoula’s aliases included Nicola Bacily, Erwin Salameh and other names that sounded like Bacile. The cellphone number where it found ‘Bacile’ for his first interview had the same address in Los Angeles where Nakaoula was traced.
It turns out that while Bacile was initially portrayed as a Jewish Israeli-American ( the Israeli government disavowed any association with him, calling him an ‘unspeakable idiot’), Nakaoula is a Coptic Christian settled in the US. He also has a criminal conviction for financial shenanigans in the country.
From all accounts, ‘Bacile’ teamed up with Morris Sadek, a fellow Coptic Christian in the US, and a fundamental American Christian pastor Terry Jones, to promote the mediocre and offensive film. In fact, few people have seen more than a few minutes of the film, and there are doubts if it was even completed. But the little that is online is so crude and contrived that it wasn’t even taken seriously till Islamist mobs made it world-famous.
Meanwhile, actors in the film said they were misled about the project and some of their dialogue was dubbed during post-production.
“The entire cast and crew are extremely upset and feel taken advantage of by the producer. We are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose. We are shocked by the drastic rewrites of the script and lies that were told to all involved,” the LA Times quoted the actors as saying.
One of the actresses who identified herself as Cindy Lee Garcia of California, said she answered a casting call last year to appear in a movie titled ‘Desert Warrior’. But somewhere along the way, it was changed to ‘Innocence of Muslims’, apparently to beguile Muslims into seeing it, and offensive references to the Prophet were overlaid on the soundtrack.
