Host: Vic Eliason
Guest: Walid Shoebat
Walid Shoebat is a former PLO member and Muslim Brotherhood activist. He is the author of several books including “God’s War on Terror” and “For God or for Tyranny”.
What was it that stimulated the terrorist activity against our embassy in Libya where our ambassador was killed? Was all of this really instigated by the film “Innocence of Muslims”?
As it pertains to the film, Walid believes our media and government are using a narrative that is mired with contradictions, relying on false statements by the filmmaker who himself is not a trustworthy source. Walid makes this claim based upon the fact that
the film’s producer, Nokoula Basseley Nokoula (a.k.a. Sam Bacile), was arrested again recently and he also changed his name again.
Walid noted that there are court documents and he has collaborated with the F.B.I. as well as with the Canadian Intelligence Bureau on the issue of Walid’s cousin, a terrorist supporter, who Nokoula Basseley Nokoula has been dealing with for some time.
Why has Nokoula been dealing with Walid’s cousin? This is just part of the narrative behind this film that the media for some reason refuses to report on.
Complicating matters even more is the fact that no one has stepped forward or can confirm positively that whoever holds the identity of this filmmaker is even that man. This means that the man who calls himself Nokoula Basseley Nokoula could actually be Muslim.
Perhaps what’s most interesting is what Walid shared concerning the Muslim world; the idea that everyone is known by their clan names. So you’d think that of the many thousands of Muslims that were angered by this film, if they really wanted to find the man behind it, they should be able to produce his siblings, wives or even ex-wives if they exist. In other words, it makes no sense that Egypt cannot produce this man.
There are two other odd characteristics of this film related incident. This film is alleged to have been made well before the attack. In addition, those who attacked the embassy are alleged to have had the accoutrements of a military team and not a group of people who’ve decided to press their cause on short notice.
