Nakoula Basseley NakoulaThis is the man whose anti-Muslim movie -- "Innocence of Muslims" -- has triggered a wave of violence in parts of the Muslim world.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula -- who produced the low-budget movie -- is seen here with Anna Gurji, one of the actresses in the film. The photo was shot this year, during production.

Nakoula, who lives in Cerritos, CA., got backing for the movie from hardcore anti-Islam organizations. The flick triggered violence in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, Iran, Iraq, Israel and the Palestinian territories.



U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens and 3 other Americans were killed in the violence.

reading thru all these comments, brings one question to mind. How many of you actually pay attention to facts? I.e; Evil acts are committed by any handy reason at hand. Anyone that takes others lives for a disrespect to their GOD, or Idol is committing an evil act. You cannot reason with the delusional or insane(Latin for unclean). Learn, think, communicate, act when needed. But never sit in angry silence. Posting hate for the filmaker, or the terrorists on TMZs web page is fruitless. If your concerned, read more about whats really going on. Do not take everything you see posted in the internet as the truth, do your own homework.

Jawad, do your respect the Christian religion? Do you resepct that as a Christian we are to turn the other cheek at an insult and we are not to judge and condemn others for their sins? So whether this man is right or wrong, we cannot do anything about it. I think he is right, and I think you should watch this movie and understand what sort of prophet you are following. You are being decieved by your leaders. Killing is not the answer to your low self esteem. Love edifies, killing and judging just shows how vulnerable you are to attack.


You must learn to enjoy life for the good things in it, such as laughter and love. Klling is a bloodlust. You just need more and more to satisfy your desire. Break the bonds of your cult and walk in freedom. The true God of the universe, YHWH, will then bless you for it.
