UPDATED: The incredibly awful trailer that instigated the violence in Libya

Sep. 12, 2012by: Alex Maidy

UPDATE: Many have commented on this article asking for the video to be taken down. While we do not support what is depicted in the video, it is the central focus of the violence that occurred in Libya and Egypt. YouTube has blocked access to the video in Libya and Egypt due to these events. While you may not agree with the contents, it is presented as part of the overall discussion of film and the impacts film has on our world.

The beauty of film, just like any artistic medium, is the freedom of expression. Everyone should be entitled to express their beliefs through any form possible. But, there is a difference between expression and hate. Sometimes people have so much anger and resentment that it comes across as nothing more than vitriol.

The tragic attacks on the US Consulate in Libya that resulted in the deaths of Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others was spurned by a movie. The film (and I use the term film loosely) is titled INNOCENCE OF THE MUSLIMS. Director Sam Bacile has apparently gone into hiding due to the events in Libya and Egypt. Bacile, according to The Hollywood Reporter, says he made it on a $5 million budget raised from 100 Jewish donors; Bacile himself claims to be Israeli. The film supposedly screened once in July at an empty Los Angeles theater, and it was not until a trailer, dubbed in Arabic, began circulating online that it caused any sort of wave of anger..

I share this video not to give this person any undue exposure but rather to show that in our modern society where everything is accessible via the Internet, there are repercussions to what is committed to film. We are lucky here in North America to be able to have movies like FAHRENHEIT 9/11, 2016: OBAMA'S AMERICA, and even THE MASTER. These films, whether you agree or disagree with their subject matter, are competently made films that examine topics in a professional manner. What INNOCENCE OF THE MUSLIMS is is not a movie or a film. It is pure hate.

This movie would never have made it to the Middle East if not for the Internet. Without proper sources being cited, it has incited violence and death where it would never have been needed. Could this small, terrible movie have far reaching effects on what Hollywood is able to produce? Much like how RED DAWN had to change the villain from China to North Korea, will studio films now have to shy away from Middle Eastern villains?

After viewing this clip, please keep your comments respectful and on topic. This article is meant to share this news and is not a forum for anyone to spread any further hate.

I agree with everyone else, this movie looks like shit and is utterly ridiculous but films didn't kill those four people in Libya, the wacko terrorists did. It's also shameful how Bacile misled and manipulated his entire cast and crew into signing up for something that appears to be a hateful waist of time. No one is going to get any wiser and the world isn't going to become any better with lazy propaganda like this around.

WRONG WRONG WRONG. This video clip is the scapegoat for what happened. It's come out now that as of Sept 4 we had significant intel that our embassies we're going to be attacked on the 11th and our president didnt do a fucking thing about it. This was retaliation for killing Bin Laden, many of terrorists were yelling "We're all Osamas" while the attacks we're taking place. The release of this video has little to do with it and the media is pumping the story that it was the reason for the

As far as this movie goes, this is awful, not for context but simply awfully made. As far as context, offensive it may be but Mel Brooks has made films more offensive to the Jewish community that did not cause an uprising. This was an excuse to be had to stir chaos, especially on 9/11, I'm not trying to be offensive, but serious some groups of people need to chill out.
There's worse things out there to be upset about!

The appalling events in Benghazi did not occur because of this movie, a few nut jobs didnt see this and go, Lets attack the US Embassy, no this was a planned attack and the film used as an excuse.
The problem is radicals that hate America, hate the West and will stop at nothing to kill and maim as many as they can.
Where we are taught tolerance, they are taught hatred. We embrace freedom, they employ fear.
And it will never stop, they cannot be reasoned with because they have nothing but

I for one am sick and tired of the political correctness, the tip toeing around not to offend anyone and then the US Ambassador is murdered and the West apologies for a film that The Asylum wouldnt admit to making. Its pathetic.
When is enough going to be enough?

The fact that this was taken seriously enough to help inspire violence by a mass of people just goes to prove how there are far too many people who have been brainwashed by organized religion and don't think for themselves. Look, I understand that may sound offensive, and it isn't a statement about organized religion itself. It's a statement about many of the masses who adhere to these religions. Sorry for using this as a place to preach these words, but I think they are very much tied into

The only reason that these kinds of things inspire people to get violent is because they don't think about how ridiculous it is. They simply blindly adhere to their doctrines and then people have to be afraid and PC about what they write and put on film. This film was too ridiculous and insignificant to be offended by or take seriously. I sincerely hope a day comes when stuff like this is considered petty and we can simply ignore it to move on to more important things.

The fact that the killers took a piece of crap like this seriously enough to kill people of the same race as the filmmakers is just as ridiculous as the film itself. To me they are just extremists just looking for a reason to pop stuff off and they found their excuse here. Hatred is the sign of the ignorant and this over produced YouTube video and the actions following it just proves my point exactly.

Thanks Joblo for taking a stand and not taking it down. We can all agree that we all think the film is bullshit but even bullshit shouldnt be censored. Censorship isnt the answer.

This is a terrible and stupid film, but saying that the filmmakers are responsible for the deaths of those four people, is like saying girls are responsible for being raped if they dress too "sexy."

Not sure if you did that intentionally, but when speaking of extremist Islam, you ARE talking about people who do believe girls are responsible for being raped. They kill people for it. They don't even know that movies are fake. The kid in the Kite Runner movie got death threats because they thought he'd been raped since it happened in the movie.

I would question any religion or organization that is intolerant of those who question it. Look at Scientology. Look how they're moving to work against the release of The Master. If you are a good and honest religion then open the doors and let the truth be known.

As for the violence over there, that place isn't a melting pot, it's a boiling pot and has been for 2000 years. The extremists are just looking for any reason to explode, any excuse to act out. They are not right in their

They are not right in their actions and they certainly do not represent the thoughts of so many Muslims who honor peace and want nothing more than to live a quiet life just like any of us, free of violence and strife.

Never blame the whole for the actions of a few retarded asshats. I'm pretty sure if you gave the entirety of the Muslim population a choice between eliminating America or eliminating the extremists that keep making them all look bad, America would still be standing in the morning and the middle east would be a lot safer and quieter.

This film had nothing to do with the killing of four people. You know why this attack happened? Because of crazy religious nut bugs. Yes, this movie is offensive to Muslims but you cannot blame a movie for the action of a certain group of people. Just like you cant blame TDKR for the actions of James Holmes. If you take a religion that serious, you really do have some mental issues.

Yes, you can blame the film and the director. If the director wasnt such a racist nut job making a movie to bash an entire religion (regardless of how crazy it can be sometimes) this small group of people wouldnt have been so outrage to go and shoot up an embassy and resulting in 4 dead. This film is what ignited this outrage, with out it those 4 people would still be alive. This director along with the people who did the killing should be strung up.

Are you kidding me? Its ridiculous to think that a movie caused this. I wouldn't be surprised if this attack was planned before they even seen this movie and if not its just another reason for them to kill. Was it disrespectful to Muslims? Sure but the "Human Beings" associated with this attack are to blame. People are responsible for their own actions. Movies come out all the time bashing different beliefs. So someone makes fun of Muslim religion this time, move on and get over it. People

The people who caused this attack are still living in the dark ages. They are uneducated, worthless individuals that believe a book written thousands of years ago is word for word the truth and if you dont bow down to Muhammad then you should be slaughtered. Right now they are blaming this movie. Something else will come along and they will blame that. This will go on and on for a very long time.

And for you to say that the films makers should be "strung up" makes you just as bad. The only crime they committed was making a really bad movie. Its not something to kill over.

Instead of repeating the well-known fact that some Muslims are violent, why don't you inform yourself on how many Muslims there are in the world. Then, you'd realize that the vast majority of them have never done any of the stuff you accuse them of doing.

Not fair to accuse this shitty filmmaker of provoking violence.

Wasn't fair to accuse The Matrix for Columbine either. This IS the shittiest film ever filmed though. Ever. As a filmmaker myself, I am quite confident the reason this person is in hiding is because he pulled a 'The Producers' scam and pocketed 4.9 million, leaving his investors to take the blame. This stinker has 'Springtime for Hitler meets Plan 9 From Outer Space written all over it. Too bad it's not a joke.

What you said is true though; those muslims who killed people cause of their faith are messed up. People need to start being more out spoken regarding the vile acts against other people in the name of religion.

As it has been stated that this film (it is indeed a film) is full of bigotry and hatred, a film which exists solely to mock the Islamic faith and ridicule the prophet Muhammad. The people who made this film knew what they were getting into and Im sure they were counting on it to provoke people of that faith (which is disgusting in itself and Im sure it was their faith that lend them to make a film like this). Despite the arrogance of the film there is no way that people can say that this

The people who made this film knew what they were getting into and Im sure they were counting on it to provoke people of that faith (which is disgusting in itself and Im sure it was their faith that lend them to make a film like this). Despite the arrogance of the film there is no way that people can say that this film caused people to die. The real cause here is the actually act of people who are killing in the name of religion.

I 100% do not support any film that is made for shear hated but Im also for freedom of expression no matter how bile and disgusting it is. Should these people be killed for making a film that mocks a faith? Absolutely not but this isnt a statement that is shared though out the Muslim world (religious world). We should teach why the film should be shunned and why we disagree with it.
I see no difference between this film and a film like A Serbian film. Both use shock value to present hatred and to invoke negative emotions (both are just as disgusting); but the difference here is that it involves god. There seems to be a cant ridicule bubble around faith when it comes to criticism, especially around the Islamic faith. A Serbian film mocks incest, rape, abuse of women, children etc yet you dont see people trying to kill the film makers or kill people on behalf of the film.

The point Im trying to convey across here is it comes down to freedom of expression and fundamentalism of religion. People have been killing in the name of religion for centuries and it goes on everyday around the world regardless of what faith. What Im for is yes people should have the right to make whatever film they like even if it is disgusting and we should have the right to provide why the film is disgusting and the right to shun it but no one should be hurt or killed because of criticism of someones faith. (Sorry if I kinda went on a rant here but it is an complicated topic)

This isn't even a movie, it's an overlong youtube video made by a douche with bad filmmaking skills, probably his first ever camera and terrible ideas and world views. I guess I'd be pissed myself if I had to sit through this for over an hour but rather because of the quality.

Even though he made an absolutely terrible movie (and I'm not talking about the religious theme here either, which I guess might make normal

Even though he made an absolutely terrible movie (and I'm not talking about the religious theme here either, which I guess might make normal people a little angry, but that should have been the end of it), he cannot be held responsable for anything that happened. It's the idiots who decided that a freakin movie is enough justification to murder that are at fault here. To me it's as easy as that.

As far as this movie goes, this is awful, not for context but simply awfully made. As far as context, offensive it may be but Mel Brooks has made films more offensive to the Jewish community that did not cause an uprising. This was an excuse to be had to stir chaos, especially on 9/11, I'm not trying to be offensive, but serious some groups of people need to chill out.
There's worse things out there to be upset about!

The blood is on the hands of the hateful idiots that made this propaganda film. Everybody knows fully well what it would cause in the Muslim world. As of course the blood is on the hands of the murderering mob. The ones behind the film are probably about as derangedly fundamentalists in their own beliefs as the killers are.

How did this movie cost $5million?!?!?! Student films shot for $1000 far eclipse this garbage in production quality. This movie is not only pure hate, but it is also pure fraud. The filmmakers behind this walked away $5million richer.

What are you talking about Alex Maidy?

What's the matter with you? The libyan terrorists are the responsibles of the killing, not a fucking movie.

This is incredibly offensive

I'm not Muslim, but this is just plain insulting and offensive. I agree with Thunderstorm that this film didn't lead to the death of four people, but it did help give an excuse for chaos.

But to come in and, I quote, say "Muhammed the Bastard" while he's eating meat off the bone like a caveman is beyond ridiculous. It's disgusting and lacks total respect for our fellow humans.

Look, I know there is worse stuff out there. There is porn that is truly deplorable and sick, there is

Look, I know there is worse stuff out there. There is porn that is truly deplorable and sick, there is anti-religion films that are false and manipulative and there are just plain bad movies. This film however has the worst of intentions and anyone associated with it: the funders, the director, the actors, the meat bone... they all deserve to be ridiculed and frankly, I'm surprised more of them haven't gone into hiding.

Also, $5 million?! Are you kidding me? High school productions have better sound quality than this. The guy isn't just running for his life from Muslims, but from the Jewish doctors he scammed, because he clearly took the money and ran if his $5 million claim is true.

While I agree that this movie is ridiculous and the internet is dangerous if not used properly this movie did not lead to the death of the four people, it was the actions taken by the people in Libya that did.
