Innocence of Muslims

Filmmaker Behind "Innocence of Muslims" Has No Regrets

Might be worth putting some of the blame for the riots on the rioters


The New York Times has the first jailhouse interview with the man behind the now infamous anti-Islamic video that sparked protests all over the Muslim world, and he admits he's not the least bit sorry about all the trouble he caused. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula—or Sam Bassil or Mark Basseley Youssef, depending on when you ask him—is in jail now because of a parole violation, but there's no question that he would have escaped authorities attention were it not for the 14-minute YouTube video called "Innocence of Muslims" that depicts the Prophet Mohammed as a violent, perverted terrorist and led to, among other things, a mob storming the American embassy in Cairo.
