Behold! The short film Innocence of Muslims (Mohammed: Prophet of the Muslims) which is allegedly being attributed to having sparked riots and the murdering of four U.S. Diplomats in Libya.
We were so curious as to what could be so incendiary as to be at the ground root of such heinous actions that we had to go and pull the youtube clip before it is wiped away. And yes, we did sit through the trifling material first.
Offensive? Certainly appears to be its core message.
But what we are left really pondering is where the hell did $5 million go in the making of this garage made home-movie. For real!
Assuredly someone, and by that we mean the alleged “investors”, got seriously jipped. Cuz this is some hand-held non-sense, not worthy of a film student creation anywhere.
Of course we don’t attribute the likes of this here shabby attempt at cinematography as the root of the present uprising – those folks don’t rightly need to much of a push to point their finger to the West and burn the American flag. But why would anyone want to go and give them apparent cause is the real question.
52-year-old writer, director and producer, Sam Bacile – if we are to call him that…, is quoted as stating that he “wanted to showcase his view of Islam as a hateful religion.”
We’d say he managed to bypass that and just be downright insulting. Oddly enough Jews get riled up over any statement directed at their views. So why would you need to go and insult a people who don’t have capacity of being objective.
“Islam is a cancer,” he is said to have added in a telephone interview. “The movie is a political movie. It’s not a religious movie.”
Wrong again Mr. In-Bacile! For additional coverage on this topic click here.
