APNewsBreak: US identifies anti-Muslim filmmaker - A&E - Boston.com

He is apparently one Nakoula Besseley Nakoula, a convicted *********. [edit -- that was supposed to read 'f r a u d s t e r' but C-D, oddly enough, censored it]

He also is alleged to have duped at least one "actor," a sometime gay porn star whose stage name is Tim Dax, into appearing in the film.

And finally, the film's spokesman Steve Klein has been revealed by the SPLC to be anti-abortion, anti-Muslim, and anti-Mormon (!) activist.

This story just keeps getting stranger and stranger...

you want weird? check this article.

There may be no anti-Islamic movie at all - CSMonitor.com

If you watch closely, you can see that when the actors are reading parts of the script that do not contain Islam-specific language, the audio from the sound stage is used (the audio that was recorded as the actors were simultaneously being filmed). But anytime the actors are referring to something specific to the religion (the Prophet Muhammed, the Quran, etc.) the audio recorded during filming is replaced with a poorly executed post-production dub. And if you look EVEN closer, you can see that the actors’ mouths are saying something other than what the dub is saying.

For example, at 2:53, the voiceover says “His name is Muhammed. And we can call him The Father Unknown.” In this case, the whole line is dubbed, and it appears the actor is actually saying, “His name is George (?). And we can call him The Father Unknown.” I assume the filmmakers thought they were being slick, thinking that dubbing the whole line instead of just the name would make it more seamless and less noticeable to the viewer. But once you start to look for these dubs, it’s hard to see anything else.

This "movie" is a scapegoat.

WHO FREAKING KNOWS. This is all crazy.

1) What happend to "I may disagree with you, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." It is a founding principle we have in the US. 2) It is also clear that there is an anti-Muslim voice over. The funny thing is it looks like the actors thought they were making a hate movie about some other group or person. Trying to read lips it looks like it was sold to the actors as anti-Jesus and anti-George Bush. 3) And stupidest of all in this total madness, is that the mob reactions must have the creator of this movie pointing to the news casts and expounding "My point exactly." Forest Gump said it best, "Stuipid is as stupid does."
