An Israeli filmmaker based in California went into hiding Tuesday after his movie attacking Islam's Prophet Muhammad sparked angry assaults by ultra-conservative Muslims on U.S.
Speaking by phone from an undisclosed location, writer and director Sam Bacile remained defiant, saying Islam is a cancer and that the 56-year-old intended his film to be a provocative political statement condemning the religion.
Bacile, a California real estate developer who identifies himself as an Israeli Jew, said he believes the movie will help his native land by exposing Islam's flaws to the world.
Though Bacile was apologetic about Americans who were killed as a result of the outrage over his film, he blamed lax embassy security and the perpetrators of the violence. A consultant on the film, Steve Klein, said the filmmaker is concerned for family members who live in Egypt. Bacile's film was dubbed into Egyptian Arabic by someone he doesn't know, but he speaks enough Arabic to confirm that the translation is accurate. The full film has been shown once, to a mostly empty theater in Hollywood earlier this year, said Bacile. Christopher Stevens, the US Ambassador to Libya, was killed in protests; filmmaker Sam Bacile enters into hiding.
Riots in Libya and Egypt broke out in protest of a little-seen, cheaply-made film produced by an real estate developer who claims to Israeli, leaving four Americans, including the Ambassador to Libya, dead. While it was nominally released in America in July, a dubbed trailer hit the web early this week, making the rounds on the web and airing on Egyptian television, outraging Muslims in both Libya and Egypt, where smaller riots broke out.


Though Bacile claims he spent $5 million on the movie -- a figure that would put the film's budget on par with the Toronto International Film Festival entrant and Julianne Moore-starrer What Maisie Knew -- the 13 minutes of footage available online look unprofessional. The film is being promoted by Florida pastor Terry Jones, who has stoked up protests before by burning Korans. The letter asked Eastwood and Cooper to speak out against such messages "in an effort to reduce the hateful rhetoric"."Your visibility, influence, and connection to the film would be a tremendous force in drawing attention to and lessening the serious dangers facing the respective communities," ADC president Samer Khalaf wrote. Jack Horner, a spokesman for the Warner Bros film studio, which released the film, told the Reuters news agency that the company "denounces any violent, anti-Muslim rhetoric, including that which has been attributed to viewers" of the film.
Iranian-backed militiamen and soldiers are battling the Islamic State group now in Iraq, but the country has not joined a US-led coalition targeting the extremists with airstrikes. A Danish newspaper's 2005 publication of 12 caricatures of the prophet triggered riots in many Muslim countries.
The film, Innocence of Islam, written and directed by Sam Bacile, is a loose biography of the Prophet Muhammed, and indulges in many of the negative stereotypes about the holy Muslim figure: that he was a philanderer, homosexual, approved of child sexual abuse, and led a minion of goons.
The comments by Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, published in the daily IRAN Farsi newspaper, come amid renewed criticism of the West by the leader as his country negotiates with world powers over its contested nuclear program. Veteran actor-director Clint Eastwood's film, which was released on December 25 and has garnered six Oscar nominations, tells the story of Chris Kyle's four tours in Iraq as a sniper. The writer-director-producer has no agent listed on IMDBPro and no credits on any film or TV production.


The newspaper quoted Khamenei as saying he hadn’t watched the film directed by Clint Eastwood and starring Bradley Cooper, but had heard about its plot from others. Its name comes from a colloquialism for the directory given to students at some American universities. The film focuses on the life of US Navy SEAL marksman Chris Kyle, who with 160 confirmed kills is considered the most lethal sniper in American military history.
Khamenei denounced "propaganda against Muslims in Europe and America", saying there was "no trace of aggression against non-Muslims by Muslims" since the advent of the Islamic republic in 1979. The newspaper said Khamenei made the comments while meeting representatives of Iranian religious minorities in the country’s parliament three weeks ago. Infiltration is a major problem when dealing with the common enemy of Islam and Christianity.
Some Libyans carried Chris’s body to the hospital and they helped rescue and lead other Americans to safety. The US and Iran have viewed each other with suspicion since the country’s 1979 Islamic Revolution that overthrew the American-backed shah and the ensuing hostage crisis at the US Embassy in Tehran.
