What we can discern is this:
The film was made by Joseph Nasralla Abdelmasih. He runs "Media for Christ" studios. He, along with several others involved in the movie have made
previous propaganda films against Islam. He also has been heavily involved in Mosque protests, such as those involving Pamela Geller. As this article
mentions, he has "thrown his lot in with virulent Islamaphobes in the U.S." -
September 11th, Islamophobia, and the ‘Persecution
The virulent Islamaphobes involved are also not normally shy about their involvement in such projects - Steve Klein, Morris Sadek, Terry Jones,
Their (Media for Christ) previous releases were done under their own names and from their studio (also known as Christ TV). This one - "Innocence of
Muslims" - differed from all those in one major respect - they tried to hide their involvement behind a false name, and set up a fall guy
("Sam Bacile") to be blamed when the SHTF. Those earlier releases acknowledged they were Christians, Coptics and Evangelicals. This one - implied
they were Israeli Jews, who were funded by "100 Jews" who put up $5 million to make the film.
What does that tell you? It tells us Abdelmasih, Klein, Sadek, et. al. knew this movie was going to lead to some serious repurcusions. That's why
they set up Nakoula (Bacile) to take the fall. Maybe they had relied on his criminal expertise with devising aliases and fraudulent identities in
hiding their names.
There's also the timing of the media blitz conducted by Sadek and fellow Copts in Egypt, and why - if they are such devoutly anti-Islamic Copts, were
they even talking to (and disseminating the movie to) radical Islamic television shows like Sheik Khaled Abdalla? Sadek specifically translated the
movie into Arabic and disseminated the film in Egypt utilizing firebrand Islamic radical shows like Abdalla's on Islamist satellite TV channel
No sooner did the "outrage" start, then the protesters were going at the embassy in Egypt and consulate in Libya. According to CNN, someone within
the security forces had been working inside with the protestors - so that when the firebombing of the consulate forced the Ambassador to flee his safe
house, the assassination squad, armed with RPGs and mortars, were there waiting for him.
The attack that killed four Americans, including the U.S. ambassador, was an organized two-part operation by heavily armed militants that included
a precisely timed raid on a supposedly secret safe house just as Libyan and U.S. security forces were arriving to rescue evacuated consulate staff,
El-Sharef said. (source)
This whole thing was planned out from the beginning - the movie was designed to give the rioters a reason to riot, the heavily armed squad would slip
in under cover of rioters to kill the ambassador and any other Americans, and the Egyptian Islamist media would extol the righteous indignity of the
"western attack on Islam" to fuel the rioting.
Now maybe, maybe
, the movie producers had nothing to do with any of that. It could all have been done strictly from the radical Islamist side
(for instance, using the Danish cartoon as their vehicle, instead of the movie), but this begs the question - why did THIS movie, from Abdelmasih,
Media for Christ, et. al. break from their previous productions and try to hide the connection back to them? Why did they set up Nakoula as the fall
guy? Why gin up the blame on Jews? They were more involved than they are admitting.
