New details emerge of anti-Islam film's mystery producer

By Moni Basu, CNN

(CNN) – Some time in the summer, a small theater in Los Angeles screened a movie to which hardly anyone came.

It was a clunky film filled with scenes in a desert and in tents. The characters were cartoonish; the dialogue gauche.

The actors who'd responded to a July 2011 casting call thought they were making an adventure film set 2,000 years ago called "Desert Warrior." That's how Backstage magazine and other acting publications described it.

The American-made movie, it turns out, was hardly an innocent Arabian Desert action flick.

  2. Atheism is not healthy for children and other living things

      I'm sorry "Atheism is not healthy for children and other living things", but you assertions regarding atheism and prayer are unfounded. I see that you repeat these unfounded statements with high frequency. Perhaps the following book might help you overcome this problem:

    Sad thing is that I want to see this movie now...Is it like the "Plan 9 from Outer Space" of religious satire?

  4. Atheism is Great for Kids and Grown-Ups Too!

    It's really best for all people including children to have an agnostic approach to god, and an atheistic approach to all religion. It keeps things simple for kids, and lets them be all that they can be. They just need to be taught that some things, like all religion, were just made up by salesmen and politicians from long ago**; and that other things, like god, we really don't know a damn thing about.

    Atheists have strong minds and don't need a religion. Sometimes, religious folk run and hide their misdeeds within their religion (and by doing so, they disserve society). Sometimes, religious folk are easily offended when someone mocks their make-believe characters – and, as we can see they can get really CRAZY!

    Religions are just big old evil clubs – each trying to out do each other and inspiring hate and division along the way (disguised as love).

    So instead of praying to make-believe people, get a good cup of tea and go on and sit down and collect your damn thoughts. My goodness.

    ** (yes, charlatan spam started long before the Bible; what would make you think it hadn't?)

  5. atheists are bunch of cowards and gutless jerks

    The man behind it is a closet atheist and the movie was secretly funded by atheists' cult. Its real intent was more than plain ridicule and insult of Mohammed and Islam but rather not less than creating war and chaos between all religions. And they are now planning to on of the 3 Major religions(Christianity, Islam, Jewish).

    It's their long-time obsession to topple down and end religions of all sorts. But they don't have enough numbers to doit. They are just a drop in a bucket even in the non-believers segment.

    It's now their design to stir-up the the one or a couple of the major religious group to anger to make them (all religions) anihilate each other that they (atheists) will prevail in the end.

    I just hope that all our muslim brothers will be enlightened that they may discern things in deeper perspective that will not be used by atheists to further their evil agenda.
