The Anti-Islamic Film That Sparked the Attack in Libya Killing the Ambassador and Three Americans
On July 2011 a casting call went out in Los Angeles California for an adventure film set 2,000 years ago called "Desert Warrior." That's how acting publications described it. The trailer of “Desert Warrior” was posted on YouTube. Viewers saw scene after scene of the Prophet Mohammed portrayed as a womanizer, buffoon, ruthless killer and child molester. Islam forbids all portrayals of Mohammed, let alone offensive ones. The Muslim world erupted in rage. Protesters aired their anti-American anger in Egypt, Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco, Sudan, and Iran and in the Palestinian territories.
On September 11, 2012 a violent mob attacked the U.S. Consulate in the Libyan city of Benghazi, leaving Ambassador Chris J. Stevens and three other Americans dead. Law enforcement officials say a man named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is behind the anti-Muslim film. The man who calls himself Sam Bacile has said he created the film, but The Associated Press on Wednesday September 12, 2012, connected Nakoula to the Bacile persona.
Official are speculating that this was a planned attack. U.S. sources said Wednesday the four-hour assault in Benghazi had been planned by militants, with the attackers using the protest as a diversion. State Department Under Secretary Patrick Kennedy offered his opinion Wednesday that the attack was planned because it was so extensive and because of the "proliferation" of small and medium weapons at the scene. He was briefing congressional staffers when he made the suggestion. A London think tank with strong ties to Libya echoed the theory. The assault "came to avenge the death of Abu Yaya al-Libi, al Qaeda's second in command killed a few months ago. If this is the case, I think this conflict over in the middle-east will never end.
As for the Muslim world to condemn all of Americans for the actions of a few idiots is ridiculous, this statement goes both ways. The Islamic world and the West are incompatible. Free speech is part of Western culture it obviously is not a part of Islamic culture. A lot a Muslim want the democracy, but they do not want everything that goes with it. Freedom of speech happens to be one of our biggest freedoms. Sam Bacile or Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and all the people who were involved, you can run and hide you cowards. You will get what is coming to you.
Ambassador Chris J Stevens was from California. He attended and graduated from Piedmont High School in San Jose in 1978, and Graduated from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982 with a B.A. he taught English as a Peace Corps from 1983 to 1985. We at Streetwise Special Delivery Courier Service send our prayers to the families and friends of all four Americans that were killed on that day.
