Innocence of Muslims director real name released

After the trailer and clips for Innocence of Muslims – an Anti-Islam propaganda film – popped up on YouTube in July 2012, demonstrations and violent protests due to the film, targeting mostly Americans, took place all around the world. Since then, numerous lawsuits have been filed against the film’s writer and producer, Sam Bacile, whose real name, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was revealed on Thursday in a court hearing in California. Nakoula’s attorney Steve Seiden has argued that his client’s bail should be set at $10,000  as a result of the hardships Nakoula has suffered due to the harsh media treatment he has endured in the last few weeks, and also argues that Nakoula poses no threat. Despite Seiden’s efforts, U.S. Central district Chief Magistrate Judge Suzanne Segal did not buy these claims and has decided the filmmaker should remain in jail on account of his 2010 conviction for check fraud, which violates the terms of his probation. With no date set for Nakoula’s next hearing, Judge Segal has also denied Seiden’s bail request, stating that Nakoula poses a flight risk. ~Brandon Bastaldo

    Honestly, the film was so bad, and utterly cheesy that Muslims had very little ground to take offense. I’ve seen better scripts coem from Power Rangers and the Kardashian wedding.

    If you get worked up over something like this, then you are an idiot.
