Fallout from the furor over an anti-Islam movie and its false Jewish connections.
There was no Israeli-American real estate developer named Sam Bacile, and the 100 Jews he claimed had financed his anti-Islam film were fictitious as well.
Both fabrications were offered to the media apparently to hide the true identity of the Egyptian Christian from Southern California who has since been fingered as the main figure behind the film that sparked violence across the Muslim world.
As questions continue to linger about the bizarre anti-Islam film that sparked protests in the Middle East, the Anti-Defamation League is calling on media organizations covering the story to more heavily scrutinize the apparent myth that an “Israeli Jew” made the film with help from Jewish donors here.
Protests over an anti-Muslim film continued outside the U.S. Embassy in Cairo, while in Yemen security guards fired at demonstrators who stormed the U.S. Embassy gates.
On Thursday in Yemen, the protesters tore down the American flag and burned it, according to reports. The protests in Cairo continued late Wednesday, a day after protesters climbed the embassy walls and tore down and tried to torch the American flag.
