Israeli Jew goes into hiding over “Innocence of Muslims” film
The problem with Bacile’s logic is that Judaism is also an outdated, archaic, trouble-making machine. Both religions are a problem. It shows that God has not only a sense of humor but he wants to see how long it will take us to figure out that religions like ideas can be outdated. God does not go out of style but manner of worship…if you can call it that…can and does. I know that Muhammed was a man. He has been reborn just like a lot of other men. I wrote all about him in my book but disguised his identity. I can tell you only that he lives in France.
“Islam is a cancer, period,” he said repeatedly, his solemn voice thickly accented.
The two-hour movie, “Innocence of Muslims,” cost $5 million to make and was financed with the help of more than 100 Jewish donors, said Bacile, who wrote and directed it.
The film claims Muhammad was a fraud. An English-language 13-minute trailer on YouTube shows an amateur cast performing a wooden dialogue of insults disguised as revelations about Muhammad, whose obedient followers are presented as a cadre of goons.
It depicts Muhammad as a feckless philanderer who approved of child sexual abuse, among other overtly insulting claims that have caused outrage.
Muslims find it offensive to depict Muhammad in any manner, let alone insult the prophet. A Danish newspaper‘s 2005 publication of 12 caricatures of the prophet triggered riots in many Muslim countries.
