The Copt/Wall St Journal Blood Libel Against the Jews – the anti-Mohammed Movie & Nakoula/Bacile

By Debbie Schlussel

When will the Copts and the Wall Street Journal apologize for their blood libel against Jews and Israel with regard to the movie, “Innocence of Muslims,” the movie used as a phony excuse for planned, coordinated Muslim violence on the 11th anniversary of 9/11 earlier this week . . . and the violence ever since? As I’ve said all along, Muslims don’t need an excuse–phony or legitimate (and it is never legitimate)–to engage in the violence that is their way and prescribed by the koran, the hadiths, and the imams and their sermons. But a movie trailer was used by Coptic Christians to defame and incite blame and hatred against the Jews and Israel, and the Wall Street Journal was complicit, with zero apologies from either party.

Scene from the “Innocence of Muslims” Trailer by Fake “Israeli Jew”/Real Copt “Sam Bacile”/Nakoula Basseley Nakoula


Reporters Camped Out @ Agent Provocateur Nakoula Basseley Nakoula’s House

On Wednesday, I told you my suspicions, confirmed later in the day, that “Sam Bacile”–the man who implicated Jews and Israelis in the crappy trailer he posted online–was a fraud, not a Jew, not an Israeli, and never raised the $5 million he claimed he got from “100 Jewish donors.” I said he was an agent provocateur, and I was disgusted that the Wall Street Journal reported this as fact and never ever made any attempt to verify even one of these specious claims that turned out to be the work of a Coptic Christian ex-con who committed bank fraud. But where did he get the money–even though it was not $5 million? And why did he implicate Israel and the Jews? And why did the Wall Street Journal–the second most popular newspaper in America (behind USA Today)–report his BS as fact, without making a single attempt to verify that “Sam Bacile,” who we now know is Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was Israeli, Jewish, and raised $5 million from “100 Jewish donors”? Just so you know, the Journal reporters whose bylines appeared on the story were Matt Bradley, Dion Nissenbaum, Sam Dagher, and Jay Solomon–respectively, a gentile, a Jew, an Arab, and another Jew. Not one of these “reporters” actually did any reporting. They, instead, put their names on a blood libel against Jews, and it spread around the world. The stories debunking that did not spread as far or wide, and the Arab Street–already prone to Muslim conspiracy theories against Jews–will use it as an excuse for more violence against Jews, just as they used it as a phony excuse for premeditated, planned violence against Americans and our embassies. Here is what they reported on Wednesday as fact (when it was not–and they did nothing to verify it):

The movie, “Innocence of Muslims, ” was directed and produced by an Israeli-American real-estate developer.

Hmmm . . . how did they know he was an Israeli or a real-estate developer? Because he told them so, and they didn’t want to break a fingernail dialing the Israeli Embassy or looking up California property records to verify this.

Then they wrote:

Mr. Bacile said he raised $5 million from about 100 Jewish donors, who he declined to identify.

Um, maybe the fact that he didn’t want to identify even one of them could have been a hint that he was lying. I mean, next, David Duke will tell the Journal that the “100 Jewish donors” were behind 9/11, and will the Journal report that? I heard that “100 Jewish donors” were behind syphilis and gonorrhea and the return of the Bubonic Plague. ‘Cuz someone told the Wall Street Journal, and they just published it. So, it’s gotta be true, right? (What other Wall Street Journal info is equally phony? Probably a lot more than people realize. Amy Chozick, then of the Journal and now of the New York Times did the same thing to me. She repeated as fact false info fed to her by HAMAS CAIR and other Muslim groups, claiming that John McCain dumped an “innocent, respected Arab businessman” from his campaign in Michigan in 2008 because of what I wrote about him. But, as I wrote, the man, Ali Jawad, was a federally convicted insurance defrauder and was an open supporter of Hezbollah, not to mention the fact that he was under investigation for Hezbollah cigarette smuggling.)

Clearly, “Bacile” a/k/a Nakoula is an agent provocateur against the Jews and Israel. The question is who funded his provocation and how deeply the Coptic church, despite its obligatory public denials, was involved. That he is Copt is hardly a coincidence and not exclusive of his anti-Semitic blood libel.

As I’ve repeatedly noted on this site–often to doubters who want desperately to take the Copts’ side against Muslims–Copts were even more anti-Semitic than Muslims in Egypt (see also here). They led Muslims to the pogroms against Jews throughout Egyptian history. Their recently deceased clown of a religious leader, Pope Shenouda III, repeatedly attacked Jews as Christ-killers, called for the murder of Jews, and praised HAMAS, asking Copts to support the Islamic terrorist group. If you think that Nakoula a/k/a “Sam Bacile” engaged in this blood libel against Jews off the top of his head, think again. The Copts hate Jews, and they clearly set out to defame Jews and Israel with all of this, by claiming that Israelis and Jews were behind this when they were not. And it’s no coincidence that the Egyptians and Arab world discovered the trailer (I’ve noted that we don’t know if a real, full-length movie actually exists) after American Coptic leader, Morris Sadek–the President of the American Coptic Assembly (and a close ally of Hanan Qahwaji Tudor, the con artist who goes by several aliases including “Brigitte Gabriel” and “Rachel Cohen”), translated it into Arabic, publicized it, and sent it out to Egyptian Muslim media he knew would latch onto it like a match to gasoline. He has yet to denounce his friend Nakoula’s disgusting blood libel against the Jews and Israel, probably because he approves of it.

I say that because I’ve had some interaction with Morris Sadek in the past (and he’s not responded to my inquiry about the movie and “Bacile”/Nakoula). When I wrote several times on this site about Coptic pogroms against Jews, and Pope Shenouda’s anti-Semitic incitement in Easter sermons and elsewhere, Sadek e-mailed me and admitted to me flat out that I’m right about Coptic anti-Semitism. But then he went on to tell me how I should be on the Copts’ side anyway. Uh, sorry, no sale. I view Copts v. Muslims as I do Hezbollah v. HAMAS and Shi’ite v. Sunni. They all hate and wanna kill me, so I just want them to keep fighting each other forever . . . and all of them to lose.

This deliberate, planned blood libel of the Jews and Israel is more reason for me to feel that way about the Copts. So, where is all the Jewish outrage, especially on the Jewish right about this? Why isn’t anyone calling the Copts out for this, when Morris Sadek promoted the movie and said nothing when he knew Nakoula/”Bacile” and that Nakoula/”Bacile” was lying about being a Jewish-Israeli and that Jews financed the movie? Because that’s what Copts do–they defame and attack Jews. They use us. They are not our allies. And they are not the allies of legitimate Christians.

Again, where is the Wall Street Journal apology to the Jews and Israel? And where is the Coptic apology to the Jews and Israel?

If you think one is forthcoming, I have some ovens in Auschwitz–the result of many similar blood libels against the Jews–to sell you.

Also, check out Edgar Davidson’s piece on this topic.


One last question: why hasn’t anyone posted Nakoula’s mug shot, which can usually be obtained through a Freedom of Information Act request from the U.S. Federal Marshal Service or the Federal Bureau of Prisons? The face of this anti-Semitic blood libelist needs to be seen and known.

What that stupid fat Secretary of State should have addressed the libel of Jew by Arab Christian instead of praising the Muslim murder cult as peaceful. The Coptic Christian as are most Arab Christian (Sirhan Sirhan , Helen Thomas, etc etc )complete asshole.) minutes should have reported how they support anti-semitism instead of the lies about preventing Christan from praying.

Do I get a hat tip?

    Debbie is not going to reprimand me because I believe Jews have higher standards to live up – and desecrating G-d’s name in being a talebearer amount their own people is not meeting them.

    That said, the world’s mass media – Western and Muslim, hate the Jews and Israel. They would NEVER print an anti-Muslim rumor as proven fact yet they were all too happy to print unadulterated anti-Semitic BS fertilizer fed to them by a party with less than pure motives because “everyone knows the Jews do it.” Uh – they don’t.

    But we live in a time when the world’s worst problem isn’t “Islamophobia.” Its anti-Semitism and we have just seen how fast a lie can travel around the world and sad to say, many credulous people will believe it. And thanks to this belief, more Jews and Israelis will die in the future.

    Like Debbie says, don’t wait for any one to apologize to the Jewish and Israeli victims of this blood libel!

That stupid fat Secretary of State used the Fatah member comment about killing, Did Abbas finance the killing in Sudan of 2 US diplomat. She should be facing treason charges.

madman on September 14, 2012 at 2:55 pm

I don’t understand why the media isn’t looking into what this film actually appears to be: a way to foment religious war between Jews and Muslims while the people who made it sit back, rub their hands together and laugh gleefully at the horror they have caused.

If these assholes were truly proud of what they had done, they would have taken ownership immediately, not tried to say that it was created and produced exclusively by members of one faith who have historical issues with the subject of the film.

This isn’t a Free Speech issue at all. As I see it, these people wanted war. It just didn’t happen the way they wanted it to happen.

GildaAnon on September 14, 2012 at 2:55 pm

    Don’t you find it curious that the same people worried about “offending” Islam are not at all worried about offending the real victims: the Jews and Israel!

    There is a double standard as transparent as its obvious: hate of Muslims isn’t halal but the hatred of Jews is kosher. Its not about freedom of speech or as the Muslims and their apologists are often fond of telling us, “respect for all the divine religions.”

    What this week revealed is that in fact its just the exact opposite and it had everything to do with defamation and nothing to do with the truth – or even with revealing the true face of Islam to the world.

    NormanF on September 14, 2012 at 5:42 pm

There are many actors in this charade, including the whole Hussein administration. They are all lying and covering up for the Muslims. They will pay, either in this world or the next.

I see this as a wake-up call to the Jewish people. There is nobody on our side except Hashem and many of us still don’t understand or know that. In the days leading up to Rosh Hashonah, this is a message from G-d to come back to him and not put our faith in anything or anybody but him.

Jonathan E. Grant on September 14, 2012 at 3:05 pm

Its clear from reading the WSJ article that Bacile claimed those things, the Journal did not. The Journal reported what Bacile claimed. You can argue the role of journalists as truth merchants or simply messengers, but you cannot claim the WSJ committed a blood libel against Jews. That’s just absurd.

“Attack on the Saudi Embassy in Khartoum
Carried out by the Black September Organization in 1973, the attack on the Saudi embassy in Khartoum was a militant attack which took ten diplomats hostage. After President Richard Nixon stated that he refused to negotiate with terrorists, and insisted that “no concessions” would be made, the three Western hostages were killed.[1]”

madman on September 14, 2012 at 3:14 pm

I think something rather bizarre is going on. Nakoula is on probation, and would have to report to a probation officer on a regular basis. If this beast did not show up at the appointed time, a warrant would go out for his arrest.

Worry01 on September 14, 2012 at 3:15 pm

Excellent article (in spite of the many typos). Please continue pushing for more information. Readers, quote this article and push for other journalists to investigate this.

PapaBear on September 14, 2012 at 3:17 pm

At this rate, “The Wall Street Journal” will be putting “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in serial form. Tossing around accusations of 100 Jews being behind the financing of an alleged film is not reporting, but rumor spreading. What happened to fact checking? Also, it does not say much for the reporters or editors of that wretched rage when such obvious propagandistic mush did not raise red flags.

Worry01 on September 14, 2012 at 3:19 pm

The major Canadian tv news channels — all of them repeated the blood libel. I’ve yet to hear any correction or retractions. (a Hindu group in Canada now wants to show the “film”, this utter piece of trash).

J.S. on September 14, 2012 at 3:19 pm

The White House is in full denial mode:

I guess the stomping on the U.S. flag and burning people in effigy is all about a film that may not exist apart from a trailer.

Worry01 on September 14, 2012 at 3:23 pm

The world is going up in flames and instead of nations dealing with the terrorists, they look for scapegoats. This filmmaker had no more to do with this latest display of islamic intolerance than George Bush had with the sinking of the Titanic!
Will our new FBI “morality police” seeking the filmmaker become a fixture at the FBI!
A large backward area of the earth insists on following the 14 century old raving dictates of a power and sex mad lunatic.
In many ways, “Mo” was the Sandra Fluke of his day ….
he needed extra rules and perks for himself.

Otto Schaden on September 14, 2012 at 3:25 pm

As far as Eygpt being an ally during Murbarak they allow the Achilles Lauro killer free and they cheered these murder at docks.
The Camp David agreement was Munich where the aggressor Muslim got all land back and money from USA. Peace deal would have been border At Suez Canal with Egypt and Israel splitting the Suez canal revenue.

The money that Israel was small in comparison to what they gave up and the amount of money wasted defending Germany and the rest of stinking Europe.

The Wall Street Journal by mindlessly repeating a vicious lie from a complete fraud is clearly guilty of journalistic malfeasance. There is no way of denying this.

J.S. on September 14, 2012 at 3:34 pm

@ FrenchKiss – are you familiar with the concept of “journalistic integrity”? Apparently not.

You don’t go around merely printing “what someone said”, you’re supposed to put at least some effort in verifying the source.

This was indeed blood libel against the Jews because any reporter, let alone a cadre of them working at a MSM entity like the WSJ, should have been suspect immediately that the claims about “an anonymous Israeli producer and 100 Jewish backers” sounds extremely lame.

DS_ROCKS! on September 14, 2012 at 3:34 pm

“Just me”– excellent question. I assume the fraudster has American citizenship, since he spent time in an American prison (he was also implicated in drug dealing). I think if he wasn’t a citizen, he would have been deported.

J.S. on September 14, 2012 at 3:41 pm

Debbie, why are you not on any government policy making committees or think tanks or other positions of influence in gov’t? Proof that the best people are not in government!

“J.S.” – I think administration policy now is to not deport illegals. Check out about the lawsuit many ICE agents filed about being directed to not enforce the laws they swore to uphold.

Additionally, many illegals must serve their sentences here prior to being deported. After they are deported they return again.

The embassy/consulate attacks were planned before this stupid flick hit the ‘net. The attacks happened because Obama is a pansy Urkle wuss.

Sadly, it costs lives and the media blames Romney?

The media, liberals, Obama’s crew (but I repeat myself) are whacked. Must be some tough polling data really bunchin’ their panties.

P. Aaron on September 14, 2012 at 4:31 pm

Not only does Obama lead from way behind, but he never learned that Peace Through Appeasement is a failed policy-see Neville Chamberlain. Of course, when your goal IS failure, I guess he could be said to be very successful. Either way, it’s been a disaster and will only get worse.

JeffT on September 14, 2012 at 4:38 pm

I have often observed the best anti-Semites are Jews.

That’s been demonstrated here again. That two Jewish reporters could disseminate a blood libel against their own people without verification or the slightest amount of skepticism – says a great deal more about them than it does about the anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Copt who fed them a such unadulterated BS. But the Jew-hating meme now lives on thanks to them!

No amount of breast-beating on Yom Kippur will undo the damage they inflicted on the Jewish people and Israel. The world’s oldest hatred lives on and Jews are as complicit in helping to perpetuate it to injure their own people than their worst enemies can ever dream of doing!

Yup – Debbie, if there are Jews G-d should never forgive, its those Jewish WSJ reporters who deliberately incited millions of Jew-hating Muslims to seek out, find and murder Jews. Thanks for calling them out by name and may they have no share in the world to come!

Color me sadly disgusted!

NormanF on September 14, 2012 at 5:17 pm

The mainstream media would print that a random, faceless, nameless, producer (and his 100 imgainary financial backers) are all Jews before they would print that Mila Kunis is a Jew. That’s just a fact and we’ve just seen it proven as such yet again.

It reminds me of loony left film critic David Poland and his basic guiding principle. In defending the movie Drive from charges of anti-Semitism, he said that it was possible that the screenwriter, a man named “Hossein”, was Jewish. In another post, he was discussing, indeed, Mila Kunis’ ethnicity, and had no idea that she was a Jew.

So a Hossein is “Jewish” before Kunis is. That basically sums it all up.

Left-wing media is reporting that Joseph Nasralla Abdelmasih is the man behind the curtain, and that Pamela Geller may also be involved.

adam on September 14, 2012 at 5:33 pm

I wouldn’t be surprised if Scamela IS involved. She has close ties to many anti-Semitic and anti-Israel Egyptian Copts. I find it hard to believe a Jew would have anything to do with such people but Jews like any one else can be quite credulous.

NormanF on September 14, 2012 at 6:22 pm

On so-called “Conservative” talk radio and on the twitters, those in the know will be able to tell the peeps who know the FACTS and those who don’t. I never hear anyone but DS tell the truth about the Copts (and Lebanese Christians, respectively…) and when the so-calleds start hand-wringing over the Copts I know they are FRAUDS. And so many are…once one would think they were on the level and serious Conservatives. Now we know better.

And this story from the get-go gives credence to DS’ summation on the Copts. Many so-calleds are still not even reporting the fraud of the fugazi “Israeli Jew”. A telling clue for those on top of the story (many more are NOT than are…)

And this am the only Conservative, local show had on Walid Shoebat on to explain the atrocity. Yep, more clueless wonders and the audience eats it up like candy. It’s a problem.

Skunky on September 14, 2012 at 7:57 pm

I remember you published something a while ago about the Copts being big haters of Jews, so when I read that this guy was a Copt, I totally understood the kind of sick mind that caused this horror.

Jacalyn Simon on September 14, 2012 at 9:22 pm

LOL, I think those 100 Jews may have called Harry Reed and told him that Romney didn’t pay any taxes for ten years. “The word is out.”

Statusmonkey on September 15, 2012 at 2:55 am

Missing from Debbie’s blog and all comments is one highly significant fact. The Wall Street Journal is owned by Rupert Murdock. And Murdock’s biggest investor is Prince Waleed. Now you know why the WSJ was so quick to run with the BS on the ‘movie.’

And is there a ‘movie’ or not? The actors are known – why has no one asked them?

I will guess there isn’t a movie. And that ‘trailer’ is either the dumbest thing going – or part of a brilliant hoax.

Nir Leiu on September 15, 2012 at 4:32 am

Wealthy men without visible means of support are known to police. Nakoula most likely was an informant for a shadowy intelligence agency. His probation officer was told to look the other way, while Nakoula followed instructions. He most likely will disappear in a federal lockup to prevent him from ratting out his network.

As i’ve said since day one, NO JEW on EARTH would have ever produced this pornographic piece of drek! Jewish high standards in film making are legendary; take HOLLYWOOD for example. The saddest thing about this entire imbroglio is, the message is getting buried under the controversy. The film may have had some truths in it but no one will ever know that now.

I am a 56 year old conservative Republican. I have been an
Atheist since I was in my teens. I am a Friend Of Israel
for the following reasons;

Israel is the only democracy in the region.

Israel is our greatest political ally.

I became a conservative after studying the history of the 20th
century. Collectivist ideologies may have killed as many as
150 million individuals.

It has recently come to my attention that after 1,400 years,
Islam makes Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, et al, look like rank

The God of the Old Testament gave parents the right to kill
their children if they became “Unruly.” Show me a teenager
who has not rebelled against their parents in the last 3,000

Christians were all about peace from the beginning. Judaism
has matured. I cannot recall a single case of Jewish or
Christian parents murdering their children. But since 9-11,
I have lost count of the “Honor killings” committed by Muslims.

If a Muslim woman files for divorce in London, she takes a
header off a 40 story building. As does her daughter if she
rejects an “Arranged marriage.” Even in America, a cab driver
in Texas slit the throats of his daughters for becoming “Too

When was the last time anyone saw an honor killing story
involving a son? That is because Islam is a perverse and
misogynist religion. If my wife shows more than her eyes
or shows her ankles, she deserves to be beaten. If I wake
up on the wrong side of the bed, I will beat her myself!

Sexual repression is the cornerstone of this so called
“Religion.” If you are a rich Muslim, you may have 4
wives. If you are a poor Muslim, you are screwed. You
are driven to Jihad by your sexual frustrations.

Look at the 9-11 hijackers who were putting dollar bills
on the rails of nudie bars and imbibing alcohol in Florida
in violation of their religious tenets.
