Oh boy…the implications here are staggering. If this film was indeed produced by Islamic hucksters, and Shoebat makes a very good case that it was — what does that make the Obama administration, who so enthusiastically jumped on the anti anti-Mohammed film bandwagon, and stayed on, even as the narrative fell apart? It’s now being reported that the US knew Stevens assassination was the work of terrorists within 24 hours of the attack. Why, as Romney and Ryan ask, doesn’t Obama want the American people to know exactly what happened in Benghazi?
Is it because the truth would reveal the deplorable lack of security at our Middle Eastern consulates and embassies? Or is there an even darker explanation?
Many of you are probably familiar with Walid Shoebat. He used to be a radicalized Muslim willing to die for the cause of Jihad before he converted to Christianity in 1994. As a member of the PLO he was involved in terrorist activity, and was even imprisoned in Jerusalem for three weeks. More about his background, here.
He has some questions about the identity of the man who made the film, Innocence of Muslims, who calls himself Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and claims to be a Coptic Christian.
…no one has stepped forward or can confirm for certain that whoever holds an identity by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is that man’s true identity. In the Middle East, if a man by the name of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula indeed exists while being blamed for creating a mess of international proportions—which included the anger of over one billion Muslims—it would not be that difficult to find the entire family in Egypt, including brothers, cousins, aunts, siblings wife, wives, ex-wives, mistresses, pets and all.
In the Middle East, no one can hide. Egypt is where the demonstrations that have taken place all over the Middle East and Asia were sparked. Yet, it cannot produce this man’s background?
Court documents have revealed that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula partnered in a scheme with Eiad Salameh, Shoebat’s first cousin, a Muslim from the Palestinian district of Bethlehem.
Shoebat blogged about Eiad Salameh back in 2008. The first real reportage of the Eiad and Nakoula connection was revealed at The Smoking Gun on September 14th, 2012.
…why would Nakoula, who claims to be a religious Coptic activist, have extensive connections with Eiad? My cousin hated Copts with a passion and is well-known in the Middle East as a master schemer, probably one of the best the Middle East has produced. He also has multiple contacts with terror networks.
Eiad is from Beit Sahour, Bethlehem. He is a dubious individual who was well known in the Arab community as the main contact for obtaining authentic, legitimate identifications from passports to credit cards, under many nationalities. He then places these identifications into the hands of dubious characters whose names are not the names written on the passports.
Eiad is a Muslim terror supporter and is not an Egyptian Copt. Both my cousin Eiad and whoever this man is who pretends to be Nakoula, had multiple, fraudulent identifications and the two connected for a decade in multiple scheming operations—the type that usually links to terrorism.
The Daily Beast reported regarding Nakoula’s bust:
The bust came around the time the feds were launching Operation Mountain Express, which would become a huge investigation into pseudoephedrine-dealing involving numerous people of a Middle Eastern background. The authorities initially insisted there were no links to terrorism, but suddenly switched and decided that a chunk of the money was going to Hizbullah.
Eiad, like Nakoula, portrayed and identified himself as an Israeli Jew, a thing Eiad did for years. He even fraudulently holds an authentic Israeli passport.
No one knows for certain that Nakoula is even who he claims to be, but we are 100% certain that both my cousin Eiad and Nakoula had multiple fraudulent identifications and what has never been disclosed until now is that the two were linked for at least a decade.
There’s much much more at the link, including a radio interview in Arabic he obtained, in which Nakoula stated that he is not Christian but a secular liberal.
A serial liar and con man, Nakoula claimed that he produced the film with his son, Abanob Basseley with money from his wife’s family in Egypt, but that hasn’t been proven..
What has been proven is that he embezzled millions with Eiad and the money must have come from these scandalous operations, which are usually linked to terrorist activity.
Shoebat asks, “why would any anti-Islam Christian or even Jewish activist want the destruction of his own? It makes zero sense, unless of course this person intends to do harm to his real enemies—Israel and the Copts.”
Both are Eiad’s ardent enemies.
How is it possible that these two would snuggle up together for a decade?
On one hand, we have a Meth-dealer-Egyptian-Coptic-anti-Muslim-activist-fundamentalist-Christian. Then on the other hand, we have a Muslim-fundamentalist-Palestinian-scam-artist-terrorist.
According to Shoebat, despite Nakoula’s serious offenses, DOJ lawyers defended him in court – “giving several excuses to Judge Snyder and pushed for leniency, all because of him supposedly promising to help them catch Eiad.”
Yet when Eiad was finally locked up in January 2011 in Canada, and the Canadians were working with the Feds to extradite him to the United States, the Obama administration opted not to bring Eiad in to face justice. Instead, they asked the Canadians to fly him to freedom in Palestine.
I received my last email from my contact on July 15th, 2011, which stated: “He is awaiting deportation to Palestine, unless the US hurry up and indict him…” The feds never responded to the Canadian’s last appeal and within a few days, Eiad was put on a plane, courtesy of the Canadian taxpayers.
Where did he go?
From day one, this international clusterfark (that started on 9/11 – hello?) over an absurdly moronic film no one had ever heard of, posted months ago, looked fishy to me. The whole thing looked orchestrated – “community organized” by the international organized left/Islamic alliance – like the so-called “Arab Spring” was.
What has been the result of all this Islamic outrage over a dopey film? Besides repeated apologies and appeasement from the Obama administration?
A look at today’s headlines at Weasel Zippers offers a clue:
All over the Islamic world we’re hearing calls for a ban on mocking Islam…
Even the Lefty Rag Slate Says Americans “Overvalue” Free Speech, Should Censor Themselves When Criticizing Islam…
Indonesian President Calls For Global Ban On Blasphemy During Speech To U.N. General Assembly…
Egypt’s Islamist President Morsi Speaks At Bill Clinton Event, Calls For U.S. To Limit Free Speech To Stop Criticism Of Islam…
Breakdown Of Obama’s U.N. Speech: 5 Minutes Spent Talking About Mohammed Film, Only 1 1/2 Minutes On Iran…
That’s just from today.
We’ve seen the lengths that this administration will go to curtail our Second Amendment rights. Is manufactured outrage over a bogus film, perhaps produced by radical Islamists – a pretext to curtail our First Amendment rights?
I’m just throwing the question out there. There’s a reason why this whole thing smells…and I submit it’s not just due to the incompetence of the Obama administration.
Last July, Cliff Kincaid of America’s Survival held a critical National Press Club event: The Vetting: Obama, Radical Islam and the Soros Connection.
James Simpson of Right Side News called it: The Most Important Press Conference Ever Held at Any Time in U.S. History:
It revealed how a huge network of U.S. and foreign communist and hard left organizations connected to this President has colluded with radical Islam for decades to oversee the destruction of their mutual enemy: America.
Overshadowing all is the malevolent Soros network, and the billions he and others like him are devoting to facilitate this goal.
When the so-called “Arab Spring” launched in February of last year, I wrote that we are witnessing the collapse of the Middle East. The Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt long sought to aid the Palestinian terrorist group, Hamas, operating in the Gaza Strip. Under Mubarak, Egypt sealed the border with Gaza, while Israel erected a blockade against shipments to Gaza, to stem the flow of arms to Hamas. They were aided by American Marxists.·
Bill Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn, Medea Benjamin and Jody Evans, all radicals with close ties to Obama, visited Egypt repeatedly, joining in pro-Hamas protests, and reported in to the White House upon their return. Benjamin and Evans also notoriously participated in the “Gaza Flotillas” that attempted to run the Israeli blockade. Radicals throughout the U.S. have repeatedly expressed their solidarity with Muslim terrorists.
Overthrowing Mubarak and installing a Muslim Brotherhood government in Egypt would facilitate aid to Hamas. As has been reported before, the U.S. State Department assisted the Mubarak regime’s opponents behind the scenes in the interest of “democracy,” while the Obama administration publicly advocated the overthrow of Mubarak.·
Given what we know about President Obama and what we have learned about the nexus between communists and Islamic radicals, his support for the Muslim Brotherhood is, sadly, unsurprising. Still, his public statement demanding that transition to a new government “must begin now!” was still shocking. Never in our history has any president so blatantly, publicly betrayed a loyal and critical ally.·
Kincaid again calls on Congress:·
It is the Marxist and Soviet/Russian/Cuban connection to radical Islam and the Palestinian terrorist cause that now deserves follow up and scrutiny from the Congress. There is a body of evidence that suggests Marxist organizations in the U.S. are working hand in glove with what they call “revolutionary Islam” here and abroad.·
Michelle Malkin: Who Is White House visitor Hisham Altalib?:
Altalib is an Iraqi-born Muslim identified by the FBI as a Muslim Brotherhood operative before he moved to America in the 1970s to earn an advanced electrical engineering degree from Purdue University in Indiana. By his own account, Altalib “soon became active in Islamic work in North America, which continues to this day.”
He was the “first full-time director of the Leadership Training Department of the Muslim Students Association of the United States and Canada (MSA)” — a longtime Muslim Brotherhood front group whose explicit goal is to “conquer” America through Islamic propagandizing.
Altalib is also a founding member of the SAAR Foundation and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). Last year, his online biography proudly notes, he was “awarded the ISNA (Islamic Society of North America) Community Service Award.” The Saudi-subsidized ISNA is regarded as the primary U.S. umbrella group for Muslim Brotherhood fronts and was named specifically by the global MB godfathers as a key player in their “Grand Jihad” strategy of infiltration from within.
Pat Dollard: Bombshell Obama Vetting: 1979 Newspaper Article By Valerie Jarrett Father-In-Law Reveals Start Of Arab Purchase Of U.S. Presidency:
Why would Muslim oil billionaires finance and develop controlling relationships with black college students? Well, like anyone else, they would do it for self-interest. And what would their self-interest be? We all know the top two answers to that question: 1. a Palestinian state and 2. the advancement of Islam in America. The idea then was to advance blacks who would facilitate these two goals to positions of power in the Federal government, preferably, of course, the Presidency. And why would the Arabs target blacks in particular for this job? Well, for the same reason the early communists chose them as their vanguard for revolution (which literally means “change”) in America. Allow me to quote Trotsky, in 1939: “The American Negroes, for centuries the most oppressed section of American society and the most discriminated against, are potentially the most revolutionary element of the population. They are designated by their historical past to be, under adequate leadership, the very vanguard of the proletarian revolution.” Substitute the word “Islam” for the words “the proletarian revolution,” and you most clearly get the picture, as Islam is a revolutionary movement just like communism is. (Trivia: it is from this very quote that Van Jones takes his name. Van is short for vanguard. He was born “Anthony”). In addition, long before 1979, blacks had become the vanguard of the spread of Islam in America, especially in prisons.
Interestingly, in context with the fact that this article was written by her father-in-law, Valerie Jarrett has an unusual amount of influence over Obama (along with personal security that may be even better than the President’s, another unusual and intriguing bit of business here). And equally interesting is that Obama, who may have been a beneficiary of this Muslim money, and may now be in this Muslim debt, has aggressively pursued both of the Muslim agendas I cited above. And, also equally interesting, is that Obama has paid a king’s ransom for court ordered seals of any such records of this potential financing of his college education, and perhaps, of other of his expenses.
GBTV: Muslim Brotherhood infiltration:
The Blaze: ‘The Project’ Part I — All Totalitarian Ideologies Are Threat to U.S
Is there a government cover-up at play?
A 2001 raid in Switzerland unearthed a chilling manifesto now dubbed “The Project,” a detailed Islamic blueprint for infiltrating, subverting and ultimately defeating the U.S. and the West. Today, 80 file boxes worth of evidence submitted during the 2008 Holy Land Foundation trial — the largest terror financing trial in U.S. history to date — including “The Project” documents, are being withheld from the American public by the Department of Justice.
On Wednesday, September 26, TheBlaze documentary unit released the first installment of this chilling two-part series outlining how the current administration has stonewalled repeated requests by Congress to release the disturbing documents and for allowing the Muslim Brotherhood greater entree into American government. Further the documentary reveals just how close American-Islamic operatives from groups such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) and the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) have been to subverting the U.S. and Israel.
Creeping Sharia: Muslims tell DOJ to find a way to criminalize criticism of Islam!
via Progressives | Islamists | Justice Department | The Daily Caller.
Top Justice Department officials convened a meeting Wednesday where invited Islamist advocates lobbied them for cutbacks in anti-terror funding, changes in agents’ training manuals, additional curbs on investigators and a legal declaration that U.S. citizens’ criticism of Islam constitutes racial discrimination.
The department’s “civil rights lawyers are top of the line — I say this with utter honesty — I know they can come up with a way” to redefine criticism as discrimination, said Sahar Aziz, a female, Egyptian-American lawyer.
“I’d be willing to give a shot at it,” said Aziz, who is a fellow at the Michigan-based Muslim advocacy group, the Institute for Social Policy & Understanding.
The audience of Islamist advocates and department officials included Tom Perez, who heads the department’s division of civil rights.
“We must continue to have the open and honest and critical dialogue that you saw in the robust debate,” Perez responded in an enthusiastic closing speech a few minutes after Aziz made her demands at the event.
“I sat here the entire time, taking notes,” Perez said. “I have some very concrete thoughts … in the aftermath of this.”
The meeting at George Washington University showcased the expanding alliance between American progressives and Islamists, said Andrew McCarthy, a former federal prosecutor in New York.
Progressives “are making these Islamist groups into the [political] representatives of Muslims in the United States,” he told The Daily Caller. That elevation of Islamists to a leadership role sidelines the majority of American Muslims who don’t want Islamist leaders, as well as American Muslims who are female or gay, he said.
McCarthy investigated and prosecuted Egyptian-born Imam Omar Abdel-Rahman, dubbed “the blind sheik,” for urging Muslims to kill New Yorkers. Abdel-Rahman was sentenced to life imprisonment in 1996.
Progressives ally with the Islamic lobby because “they think it will be a political voting bloc that will be reliably Democratic,” said Robert Spencer, an author and expert on Islam.
None of the Islamist advocates of civil rights officials in attendance, including Perez, objected to Aziz’s call for free-speech restrictions.
Of course not because free speech restrictions are part of the regime’s agenda, too.
Big Government, 8/8/12: Obama Administration Paves the Way for Sharia Law:
The most terrifying danger Americans face from a second Barack Obama term isn’t the economy, which is scary enough.
The most harrowing prospect is the Obama Administration’s passivity in the face of attempts to introduce aspects of sharia law into our legal system. Now there is strong and open evidence of the Obama administration collaborating with Islamist activists to ensure the path toward sharia law is accelerated.
Just last week, Thomas Perez, Assistant Attorney General of the Department of Justice (DOJ) Civil Rights Division, was asked this question by Trent Franks (R-AZ), a member of the House Judiciary Committee Subcommittee on the Constitution: “Will you tell us here today that this Administration’s Department of Justice will never entertain or advance a proposal that criminalizes speech against any religion?”
Perez refused to answer. Four times.
And why would Franks target Perez?

Lady Liberty: Incompetence or Failed October Surprise?
Over at Creeping Sharia, someone has a similar theory to one I have been kicking around since late yesterday. This ‘random’ video, made by a not so Coptic man as it turns out, lands on Egyptian TV just as the U.S. Presidential election heads into the debates before election day. No one here has heard of it or the maker until the riots break out in Cairo. No knows who this guy really is right now…except for the government, because it was this administration who arrested him and also let him out of jail when he agreed to turn snitch for them.
