The “Innocence of Muslims” And The Hypocrisy of Non-Muslims

The spate of racist anti-Muslim/pro-Israel ads that have sprung up throughout New York’s subways have been widely condemned but permitted  on on the grounds of freedom of speech.  The ads which had previously appeared in San Francisco were taken out by the American Freedom Defense Initative (AFDI) who are spearheaded by notorious Islam-bashers Robert Spencer and Pamela Geller, who had personal contact with Morris Sadek, the Egyptian-Copt behind the “Innocence of Muslims” film.

However, “freedom of speech” for all it’s unquestionable merits has been abused by the gatekeepers to villify “the savage” and “support the civilized man”  – the Arab/Muslims semitic cousins.

Case in point being the contrast between the courts acceptance to display Spencer and Geller’s hate-filled message in the public transport system with an anti-Israel ads which were to appear in King County with the tagline “Israeli war crimes, your tax dollars at work”. The respective judges ruling on:

Anti-Islam Ad:

The judge, Paul A. Engelmayer of Federal District Court, ruled that the rejected ad was “not only protected speech — it is core political speech,”

Anti-Israel Ad:

The Court also determined that in light of the undisputed facts regarding the purpose of the forum and the factual basis for King County’s application of its policy in this case, King County’s decision to cancel the SeaMAC Ad was both reasonable and viewpoint-neutral.

Charlie Hebdo and The Sine Affair

The hypocrisy on display is undeniable though far from unique and not exclusive to the USA.  Another to pour fuel onto the flames of the already raging inferno of Islamic-Western tension was the French Magazine Charlie Hebdo who decided to run provocative cartoons of a turbaned, naked Mohammed.

The magazine defended it’s right to publish the caricatures on the grounds of “freedom”

He says nothing wrong has been done, and that his magazine has not infringed French law, as a publication has the right to use the freedom to run critical or satirical cartoons.

The French magazine clearly has the freedom and desire to insult Muslims yet the same “freedom” evidently didn’t apply when the criticism is focused on Jews.

Maurice Siné had been a contributor to Charlie Hebdo for  twenty years when in 2008 he published an “anti-semitic” comment in his satirical column suggesting that Jean Sarkozy, the son of the former French President was set to convert to Judaism prior to his marriage to his fiance; a Jewish heiress, to improve his career prospects.

Sine’s offending comments:

‘He’ll go a long way in life, this lad!’

Source

Sine was then ordered to apologise by the magazine but he refused and was duly sacked.  The Guardian reported:

The piece was published without controversy – until several days later, when a radio presenter referred to it as anti-Semitic. The families of those concerned were said to be ‘sickened’. Val, who took the controversial decision to re-publish a Danish newspaper’s cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed two years ago in the name of freedom of the press, agreed that the piece was offensive and told its author to apologise.

Siné refused, saying he would rather ‘cut his own nuts off’ and was, more or less, fired. Cue outrage, argument, counter argument, argument. Was the original statement anti-Semitic? For Val, there was no doubt. Siné’s statements, he said last week, ‘could be interpreted as making a link between conversion to Judaism and social success’ and that they spread the old stereotype associating Jews and money.

Max Blumenthal, Death Threats and The Hypocrisy of Google.

Proving that Islam is not uniquely prone to violence Sine, 79, was targeted with death threats by the terrorist outfit the Jewish Defense League (JDL).  Who threatened:

20 centimeters of stainless steel in the stomach, it could well teach the bastard to stop and think.”

Source

Another to receive death threats was Jewish journalist/filmmaker Max Blumenthal who received numerous death threats for being a “self-hating Jew” after producing a film critical of the attitudes of Israelis.

(You can watch the film here: Feeling The Hate In Jerusalem — The Censored Video from Max Blumenthal on Vimeo. )

Blumenthal’s film went the way of  The Palestinian Media Watch who had their account banned for “hatespeech”  while Blumenthal’s film was banned from Youtube due to “innapropriate content”.

And Google/Youtube’s response to the “hatespeech” and innapropriate content” contained in the Innocence of Muslims trailer?

They denied a White House request to take down the film – all in the name of “freedom” of course.

Jyllands-Posten

A final example of the hypocrisy at work is the original spark in 2006 of the Mohammed cartoons hysteria; that of the 12 cartoons published in Danish newspaper the Jyllands-Posten including the infamous image of Mohammed with a bomb in his turban.  They were the brainchild of editor Flemming Rose, a keen admirer of leading Islamophobe Daniel Pipes.

The newspaper again defended it’s decision to publish the highly offensive images to Muslims on the grounds of “freedom” yet the very same hypocrisy was exposed when it was revealed that in 2003 they refused to publish satirical cartoons of Jesus on the basis that they were offensive to Christians and later in 2006 they point-blank refused to publish satirical cartoon relating to the Holocaust.

Carlos Latuff’s Entry To The Iranian Holocaust Cartoon Competition

While freedom of speech  is an absolute requirement of every truly open, free and just society it is also a double-edged sword.  A sword that is only sharpened on one side to hack at Muslims while the other is intentionally left blunt.

Morris Sadek: Useful Idiot or Tool of Zionism?

“Every kind of inter-Arab confrontation will assist us”

Oded Yinon, World Zionist Council, 1982.

Sadek’s vision of the dissolution of Egypt into five states

On the third of September one of the central figures behind “Innocence of Muslims” also released a statement on the National American Coptic Assembly website calling for the balkanisation of Egypt into five states one of these being a Coptic state with Alexandria as it’s capital.

It was released by Morris Sadek, who incidentally would become the new state’s Vice President.  Sadek is an extremist, Coptic-Zionist who is denonunced by mainstream Copts in Egypt as an anti-Islam fanatic who dishonestly pushes his extremist agenda. However, in the US Sadek, has forged alliances in his anti-Islamic crusade with the lunatic fringes of the Christian-right and the Zionist-funded anti-Islam propogandists such as Brigitte Gabriel of ACT! For America and Robert Spencer of Jihadwatch.

 

A September 1st Arabic news article suggested that there are moves afoot in Egypt to charge Sadek and his Coptic co-conspirators for treason.

So it may come as no suprise that Sadek’s vision for the Middle-East neatly parallells “The Zionist Plan For The Middle-East”  The following is a section from a report written in 1982 by Oded Yinon who worked The Foriegn Ministry of Israel and was published by The World Zionist Organisation:

17
In the course of the Nineteen Eighties, the State of Israel will have to go through far-reaching changes in its political and economic regime domestically, along with radical changes in its foreign policy, in order to stand up to the global and regional challenges of this new epoch. The loss of the Suez Canal oil fields, of the immense potential of the oil, gas and other natural resources in the Sinai peninsula which is geomorphologically identical to the rich oil-producing countries in the region, will result in an energy drain in the near future and will destroy our domestic economy: one quarter of our present GNP as well as one third of the budget is used for the purchase of oil.9 The search for raw materials in the Negev and on the coast will not, in the near future, serve to alter that state of affairs.

18
(Regaining) the Sinai peninsula with its present and potential resources is therefore a political priority which is obstructed by the Camp David and the peace agreements. The fault for that lies of course with the present Israeli government and the governments which paved the road to the policy of territorial compromise, the Alignment governments since 1967. The Egyptians will not need to keep the peace treaty after the return of the Sinai, and they will do all they can to return to the fold of the Arab world and to the USSR in order to gain support and military assistance. American aid is guaranteed only for a short while, for the terms of the peace and the weakening of the U.S. both at home and abroad will bring about a reduction in aid. Without oil and the income from it, with the present enormous expenditure, we will not be able to get through 1982 under the present conditions and we will have to act in order to return the situation to the status quo which existed in Sinai prior to Sadat’s visit and the mistaken peace agreement signed with him in March 1979.10

18
(Regaining) the Sinai peninsula with its present and potential resources is therefore a political priority which is obstructed by the Camp David and the peace agreements.

(…)

19
Israel has two major routes through which to realize this purpose, one direct and the other indirect

(…)

Israel will not unilaterally break the treaty, neither today, nor in 1982, unless it is very hard pressed economically and politically and Egypt provides Israel with the excuse to take the Sinai back into our hands … Israel will be forced to act directly or indirectly in order to regain control over Sinai as a strategic, economic and energy reserve for the long run.

(…)

20
Egypt, in its present domestic political picture, is already a corpse, all the more so if we take into account the growing Moslem-Christian rift. Breaking Egypt down territorially into distinct geographical regions is the political aim of Israel in the Nineteen Eighties on its Western front.

(…)

21
The vision of a Christian Coptic State in Upper Egypt alongside a number of weak states with very localized power and without a centralized government as to date, is the key to a historical development which was only set back by the peace agreement but which seems inevitable in the long run.

The report fantasizes over the the establisment of Israel as an expanded regional superpower ruling over weak and defenseless, Muslim mini-states ravaged by internal strife.  Coincidentally or not this process has already begun – Sudan has been split, Somalia and Libya aren’t actually controlled by a central government and the two other main focuses/threats (Syria and Iraq) have been destroyed or are in the process of being destroyed.

On Iraq:

Iraq, rich in oil on the one hand and internally torn on the other, is guaranteed as a candidate for Israel’s targets.

On Syria:

The dissolution of Syria and Iraq later on into ethnically or religiously unqiue areas such as in Lebanon, is Israel’s primary target on the Eastern front in the long run, while the dissolution of the military power of those states serves as the primary short term target. Syria will fall apart, in accordance with its ethnic and religious structure, into several states such as in present day Lebanon, so that there will be a Shi’ite Alawi state along its coast, a Sunni state in the Aleppo area, another Sunni state in Damascus hostile to its northern neighbor, and the Druzes who will set up a state

Steve Klein Fired From Courageous Christians United For “reprehensible” Film

Rob Sivulka,President of Courageous Christians United (CCU) has moved to distance himself from Steve Klein and his anti-Islamic film and has had him unvceremoniously dumped from the CCU board.  Sivulka claims the film “served primarily to evoke a violent response”

http://www.courageouschristiansunited.org/

We at Courageous Christians United (CCU) had no knowledge of the film “The Innocence of Muslims” or Steve Klein’s involvement in it until September 12, 2012.  Steve was removed from the board of CCU as of September 14, 2012 because of his involvement in this film.  As the founder of CCU, Steve was an honorary board member, but he has never been to any of our board meetings.  In 2006, when I wanted to form my own non-profit corporation, Steve gave me CCU, which he was no longer using.

Steve was in no way acting on behalf of our mission organization in the production of the video.  While both Steve and the film maker have a right to express their views, that doesn’t mean that we here at CCU endorse this movie as a good means to convey the truth about Islam.  In fact, we find this film reprehensible and irresponsible, and serving primarily to provoke a violent response.

Joseph Nasrallah: Good Copt? Bad Copt?

Militant Christian-Zionists and Coptic-Zionists with possible support from the stable of the Zionist-funded professional Islamophobia industry.

Quote:
An inflammatory anti-Muslim film that has been blamed in this week’s deadly attack on U.S. diplomats in Libya was produced by a Duarte-based Christian non-profit, officials said.

Media for Christ, which has its administrative offices south of the 210 Freeway in Duarte, took out a film permit for the production, according to City Manager Darrell George.

The producers also used Blue Cloud studios in Santa Clarita, also known as Blue Cloud Movie Ranch, as the film’s location, George said.
“It was filmed in Santa Clarita,” George said. He said he obtained the information from the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department.
http://www.presstelegram.com/breakin…-east-produced

(…)

Quote:
According to public records, Media for Christ took out a business license in 2006 at the Duarte location.

Steve Klein, who claims to have consulted a Jewish filmmaker using the name Sam Bacile, said Media for Christ “had nothing to do with the filming of this movie.” But Klein also said he could not say where exactly the video was filmed.

It was “somewhere in California,” he said. “I don’t know where.”

The Associated Press reported that Bacile is actually a California Coptic Christian convicted of financial crimes who acknowledged his role in managing and providing logistics for the production.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula,
55, told the Associated Press in an interview outside Los Angeles that he was manager for the company that produced “Innocence of Muslims.”

Nakoula however denied he directed the film and said he knew the self-described filmmaker, Sam Bacile. But the cellphone number that AP contacted Tuesday to reach the filmmaker who identified himself as Sam Bacile traced to the same address near Los Angeles where AP found Nakoula. Federal court papers said Nakoula’s aliases included Nicola Bacily, Erwin Salameh and others.

Nakoula denied he had posed as Bacile. During a conversation outside his home, he offered his driver’s license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Records checks by the AP subsequently found it and other connections to the Bacile persona.

Klein said he has taped a television show called “Wake Up America” on The Way TV, which shares the same Duarte address as Media for Christ, according to public records.

The Way TV offers Arabic Christian programming.

“I talk about different current events, what’s happening in the Middle East,” Klein said.

Public records list Steve Klein as director of Courageous Christians United. According to the Southern Poverty Law Center web site, Klein “has a long history of ties to militant Christian organizations.”

Klein lives in Hemet.

Both Media for Christ and The Way TV are run by Joseph Abdelmasih of Arcadia, who is listed as chief executive officer for both entities, and president of Media for Christ, public records show.

Nasralla and the Islamophobia Industry

Quote:
Nasralla (also spelled Nassralla) participated in the 2010 anti-mosque rally at Ground Zero, also sponsored by Geller and Spencer, and received media coverage because of an incident at the event. The crowd surrounded Nasralla and another Egyptian speaker mistaking them as Muslims.

Spencer is the director of Jihad Watch, a program of David Horowitz’s Freedom Center. Spencer and Geller founded Stop Islamization of America (SIOA), an affiliate of Stop Islamization of Europe and a project of their American Freedom Defense Initiative (AFDI). The AFDI is the sponsor of anti-Muslim advertisements on buses in Manhattan and San Francisco. Spencer and Geller describe their inflammatory activism as being “pro-Israel,” although they have no doubt alienated many supporters of Israel. Sources, including a 2011 Slate article, counted the references to Geller, Spencer, and their collaborators in the writings of Norway’s mass killer Anders Breivik, and found them cited over 250 times.

It was Spencer and Geller that organized the 2009 rallies around Rifqa Bary, the Muslim girl who ran away from home with the aid of her Christian proselytizers. See previous posts on this issue ( 1, 2, and 3) including the role of controversial pastor Terry Jones, who has also been reported as promoting the movie in question.

Media for Christ

Media for Christ received its non-profit designation with the IRS in 2009 and is described in the filings as follows.

Quote:
“Media for Christ is a non-denominational evangelical Christian organization providing spiritual aid to people worldwide through its web site and its satellite TV station, the Way TV.”

According to the organization’s 990 tax forms, Nasralla (listed as Joseph N. Abdelmasih) is the president, Kamal Rizk of Raleigh, N.C. is vice president and CPA, and Rania W. Mossad is secretary of the non-profit. Income increased from 65,000 dollars in 2007 to over one million dollars in 2011. The latest available 990 showed a “program expense” of $10,500 dollars for “TV broadcast” in Egypt.

I have been unable to find additional information on the other two registered officers of Media for Christ – Kamal Rizk and Rania Mossad – but the 2011 obituary of Kamal Rizk’s brother describes him as “the son of a furniture shop owner in Cairo.” Kamal Rizk is quoted in the obituary,

Kamal Rizk described his brother as a devout Christian who attended a Jews for Jesus worship service on weekdays and a regular church service on Sundays. He was also an active supporter of Israel and traveled to Washington each July to work with a group led by evangelist John Hagee to lobby Congress for support of Israel.

The Way TV includes a show hosted by Steve Klein called “Wake Up America.” Klein has told press that he “consulted” on “The Innocence of Muslims” movie, but denied to the press that Media for Christ produced the film. Klein and others have pointed to a “Sam Bacile” as director of the film, apparently a fictitious name. See the SPLC’s report on Steve Klein.

Klein, Nasralla, and Gary Cass are partners in an anti-Muslim student outreach effort titled 911 Defend Our Students, which has included handing out fliers to students as they leave their schools. A Christian Newswire press release describes the program in the words of Cass,

“Muslims are trying to convert and radicalize our young people. By telling them the truth about the dangerous doctrines of Islam and the and wicked practices of Mohammad we are protecting our children.”

Cass, former executive director of James Kennedy’s Reclaiming America for Christ, co-founded the Christian Anti-Defamation Commission with General William S. Hollis. Projects have included a series of videos titled “Seven Reasons Barack Obama is not a Christian.” The advisory board includes Matt Staver, Rick Scarborough, Lou Sheldon, Dick Bott, Ted Baehr, Don Wildmon, Leslee Unruh, and other Religious Right luminaries. Cass is one of the “Broadcast Celebrities of The Third Rail, along with Gen. William “Jerry” Boykin, Larry Pratt, and other “veteran patriots.”

Remember, the whole world is watching what you say at the Rally. Hostile international media will be listening to your every word. Your remarks will be parsed to find the most damaging pull quote that they can use to smear the whole rally. The media will be looking for a soundbite they can use in order to defame the entire Rally as a gathering of bigots and hatemongers.

We cannot and must not fall into their trap. You can be just as effective without being inflammatory.

We want to host more conferences and rallies in the future, and we hope you will speak for us again. Accordingly, we ask most urgently that you adhere strictly to the following guidelines:

Don’t say or suggest that all Muslims are evil or terrorists
Don’t say or suggest that all mosques are planning grounds for jihad terrorism
Don’t bash Islam. Don’t refer to it as an evil religion. If you need to refer to Islamic doctrines, be specific and avoid broad characterizations.
If you do not adhere to these guidelines, your address will not help us achieve our goal. You will have helped the media portray the Rally as hateful, and will have just made the mosque Imam Feisal Abdul Rauf look good.

Focus in on talking points that Bat Ye’or articulated in a recent interview with Pamela Geller:

Ground Zero is a war memorial, a burial ground – sacred to the American people
Mosque supporters say the mosque is intended to show good will, but Americans wouldn’t destroy the cemeteries of soldiers in Europe in order to show good will toward the Germans
A mosque at Ground Zero shows a lack of consideration for the victims and their families
The people are against the mosque. The government must listen to the demand of the people
The mosque organizers should respect the feelings of the nation and the memories of the families
This mosque will be an icon in the Islamic world for the global jihad
9/11 has become a symbolic date to accuse the West of Islamophobia – it has been subverted. In the same way, the mosque will stand for the jihad
We should ask the Muslim group for mutual respect and mutual understanding. Muslims cannot put a mosque on top of Ground Zero the way they put a mosque on the top of the Temple Mount. That is how this mosque is perceived, and people have to be sensitive to that.

If you believe in your heart that you cannot adhere to these guidelines, please let us know now that you will speak to press at the Rally.

Please acknowledge receipt of these Guidelines and reply back with your assent to them.

Yours in liberty

Morris Sadek’s official “Position on Israel”

Sadek advocates the ethnic cleansing of non-Jews from Jerusalem and the right of Israel to extend her borders to “historic Israel”

Statement released on the National American Coptic Association Aptil 24, 2010

We recognize the sacred right of the state of Israel and the Israeli people to the land of historic Israel .

“The right of Return” of the Jewish people to the land of their foremothers and forefathers is a sacred right. It has no statute of limitation. The return must continue to enrich the Middle East .
We recognize Jerusalem as simply a Jewish city, It must never be divided, She is, and shall always be, the united capital of Israel .

The future of the Palestinians lies with the Arab states. A Palestinian state in Judea and Samaria constitute an imminent danger to world peace.

We believe that the Wahabi/Moslem brotherhood religious ideology and its power structures are threats not only to Israel and other non-Arab, non-Moslem peoples in the Middle East, but also to world peace.

It is our opinion that the North Atlantic Treaty Organization should be assigned the historic and critical mission of defeating this Islamic ideology and its power structures.

We believe that the resolution of the Arab-Israeli conflict and the achievement of genuine peace in the Middle East can only be visible with the emergence of tolerant Islamic faith. The toxic combination of Islamic supremacy and extremism and Arab racism is the real enemy to peace in the Middle East. It must be defeated.

In any current or future peace treaty among all parties involved in the Middle East conflict, the following must be part of such treaty :

“All parties to this treaty recognize Mecca and Medina to be the holiest cities in Islam, whereas Christian and Jewish parties to this treaty give up and surrender in full any and all legal and historical rights to these cities. All parties to this treaty recognize a united Jerusalem to be the holiest city in Judaism, whereas all Arab and all Moslem parties to this treaty will relinquish and surrender in full any and all legal and historical rights in

Jerusalem and as such accept it as the united capital of the Jewish state.”

NBC Reports: Nakoula Basseley Nakoula Is Ex-Con

Having previously being convicted twice on drugs charges Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is on probation for commiting fraud.

Man behind anti-Islam film reportedly is Egyptian-born ex-con

Updated 1:36 a.m. ET: A 55-year-old Egypt-born Coptic Christian man living in the Los Angeles area was a key figure behind the anti-Islam film “Innocence of Muslims,” blamed for sparking riots and protests in the Middle East, a federal law enforcement official told NBC News Thursday.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who is on probation after being convicted of financial crimes, also was twice sentenced to jail on drug charges in the late 1990s, the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office said.

Court records show that Nakoula was convicted on federal fraud charges in Los Angeles in 2010. Among the conditions of his probation, Nakoula was barred from using “any online service at any location” without the prior approval of his probation officer, according to a copy of court records in the case.

Meanwhile The Daily Kos suggests that the incompetent Nakoula is the fall guy and the “keyman” is actually fellow Copt Joseph Nasrallah,

Joseph Nassralla and Media for Christ (M4C) applied for the filming permit for Desert Warrior (per San Gabriel Valley media sources).  M4C has IRS non-profit status and files 990 returns. The 2011 return shows a budget of 1 million dollars, and assets that could be used to produce the film.

The film used Hollywood forms: Casting Calls, Permits, SAG categorization.  The film used modern green screen techniques, and sound editing and overdubs.

The Media for Christ (aka ATVSat.com ) website is a video blog production.  Klein and others use it for their platforms.

Nassralla knows how to roll a production.  There is no evidence that the incompetent Nakoula has any experience — his indictment for  check kiting schemes makes clear that he was not sophisticated in avoiding detection or recognition.

Joseph Nassralla has a very deep media trail, mostly on account of his featured roles in the various Pamela Geller promoted anti-Mosque events in New York City.  SEE: http://rainoutreachtv.com/…

The author then goes on to speculate that The Innocence of Muslims could be the work of the professional Islamophobe network of Pipes, Geller and Spencer.

I think it is not beyond speculation to think that the NYC-based  English speaking anti-Islamic  clique of Geller , Robert Spencer, Daniel Pipes commissioned the “Desert Warrior” project.  The movie was made in English (and likely for an American audience)  and the overdubbing to Arabic appears to be a second thought.
