Innocence of Muslims? Actors say they were duped

The 80 actors and technicians of the controversial film “Innocence of Muslims” say that they were deceived to work for this anti-Muslim piece of movie, which has led to protests and riots in Libya and Egypt (Morocco and Yemen, too).

“Innocence of Muslims”-Producer Sam Bacile has filmed a completely different movie with them and the title of the message and the voice recordings were later changed completely. That`s what the actors of this strange movie have published now.

The actors of “Innocence of Muslims” (or Desert Warrior as it was called before) have released the following statement:

“The entire cast and crew are extremely upset and feel taken advantage of by the producer. We are 100% not behind this film and were grossly misled about its intent and purpose. We are shocked by the drastic re-writes of the script and lies that were told to all involved. We are deeply saddened by the tragedies that have occurred.”

It looks as if the religious references were laid over it in the post-production of this movie. The actors say they had no idea in the movie it was about the life of Muhammad. The script that was given to them was called “Desert Warrior” and it should be the story about the ancient Egyptian life of “Master George”. This was later re-synchronization and he became “Mohammed”.

Actress Cindy Lee Garcia said in an interview with the website gawker.com:

“It was going to be a film based on how things were 2,000 years ago,” Garcia said. “It wasn’t based on anything to do with religion; it was just on how things were run in Egypt. There wasn’t anything about Muhammed or Muslims or anything.”

Cindy Lee Garcia, an actress from Bakersfield, California, said that she has called Bacile and told him her opinion: “I called Sam and said, ‘Why did you do this?’ and he said, ‘I’m tired of radical Islamists killing each other. Let other actors know it’s not their fault.'”

The actress Garcia was horrified when she saw the end result and as the protesters in Libya, the four employees of the U.S. Embassy killed. She isn’t satisfied simply knowing it wasn’t her fault and is going to sue Bacile.

“I had nothing to do really with anything,” she said today. “Now we have people dead because of a movie I was in. It makes me sick.” (Source: gawker.com)

In fact, if you take a look at the original call for the cast of the film, see below, then the names of the characters are very different, as now shown. There is no role of a person who is called Mohammed.

The main character is indeed named George, should be 40 to 50 years old and a militant leader who is described as being romantic and charismatic.

There are now a lot of rumors about the producer of this movie and who is hiding. Sam Bacile should not be his real name and it is said that he is no Israeli but a Christian who regularly appears in the militant Christian scene in California – which is said to consist of people from Egypt or Syria.

But not only the actors of the movie “Innocence of Muslims” were misled, because it is a large-scale deception on all sides and it disguises the real masterminds and financiers. The whole story and rumors and the way and date it happened sounds more like an planed intelligence operation to outrage the Muslims and, of course, to especially motivate the radical parts to make some “noise”. In addition, the attack and murder of the people in Libya does not look like an amateur act by an angry mob. It must have been planned before. The sad or true irony is clear.

The radical parts that were supported, motivated and armed by America and other Western countries have killed the U.S. ambassador now. As it is usually happening when one backs radical parts. The history of the U.S. Foreign Policy is full of these examples.

In addition, as the German Blog “Alles Schall und Rauch” also has written as final words, even the German news channels and media uses a kind of deception again. This is not surprising when one recalls the recent months and the evidence that the German Intelligence and Government is involved in the bloodshed in Syria and backs the Islamists, Terrorists and foreign mercenaries.

As recently published, the German government gets blackmailed by the U.S. administration to follow the “American way” when it comes to Syria. This should not be the first time that something like this happens.

German media said in the evening news last night, that this movie is an amateur movie. This cannot be true – 80 people participated in the movie “Innocence of Muslims” / “Desert Warrior” and about 5 million dollars were used to produce this. This doesn`t sound like an amateur movie. Of course, the question is, why was and is there so much trivializing and misrepresentation by German media when it was and is easy to investigate the background of this movie?

At least, to investigate the real motivations for the re-synchronization and things that happened now is more difficult but it doesn`t sound like the work of an amateur movie producer, does it?

    Were These Protests Really About That Film?

    Reuters: Anti-American fury sweeps Middle East over film

    Fury about a film that insults the Prophet Mohammad tore across the Middle East on Friday with protesters attacking U.S. embassies and burning American flags as the Pentagon rushed to bolster security at its missions.

    These protests were not about that film.

    The action at the consulate in Benghazi on Tuesday/Wednesday was a deliberate, well planned attack by some AQ affiliated or Salafist group. It seems that the storming of the embassy in Egypt was launched as a coordinated diversion for that attack.

    The attacks on the U.S., German and British embassies in Khartoum today were state sponsored for local political reasons. Omar Hassan al-Bashir needed to prove his Islamic credentials and even designated the targets:

    Christians always get sandwiched wherever there is sectarian violence. It is not bad that they pick up guns and fight alongside the legimate Assad Al- Bashar’s troops. Assad Al-Bashar was legitimately elected to govern Syria after his father’s death. Christians do have the right to self-defence.
