Actress: Director of anti-Islamic film deceived us
Yahoo News ^ | 09/12/12 | Max Zimbert

An actress in the movie about the Prophet Muhammad that sparked outrage across the Middle East on Tuesday and Wednesday said she will sue the filmmaker and that the film's script, titled "Desert Warriors," focused on life 2,000 years ago.

Cindy Lee Garcia told Gawker that she called the film's writer and director, who has now gone into hiding, when she saw the protests and his quotes in the media.

"'Why did you do this?' and he said, 'I'm tired of radical Islamists killing each other. Let other actors know it's not their fault,'" she told Gawker. "I'm going to sue his butt off."

“’I'm tired of radical Islamists killing each other.”

WTF? This woman needs her head examined. What kind of statement is that? C’mon, we all want them to NOT STOP killing each other, what a useful idiot in more ways than one!

She’s an actress in the movie and she didn’t know it would offend the Muslim population until now. What a friggin dope!

Haha! She never read the script? It never occurred to her that MO-hammed looked bad ? I watched 5 minutes of this ‘film’ (it was awful to sit through) and I could see where it was going. Hope she has to pay all legal fees and the filmmaker counter sues.

WTF? The world would be a lot better place if all the radical islamists killed each other.

Spoken like another member of the Film Actors Guild:

>>“I’m tired of radical Islamists killing each other.”

She’s supposedly quoting the director. Doesn’t make any sense that way either!

The Yahoo story contains not a word about what grounds she thinks she has for a lawsuit, and also nothing about the supposed ‘deception’. That is NOT a quote, BTW, in spite of it being in the story title. She never used the words deceived or deception.

Interesting take too from the article on this site.

A self-described militant Christian activist named Steve Klein - a consultant on the film - informed the Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg that there were Copts and evangelicals involved in the making of the movie.

Good catch!

Cindy thinks she sees a WOO here and is apparently going to go for it! I knew another "Cindy" who went for it and was used and abused by the left. Same thing will happen with this "Cindy" if she gets that far!

OK, I'm even confused now!?. Is she talking about his "quotes in the media," or making the film, when she asked, 'Why did you do this'? (I think the "?" after the quote marks is correct for all the GN's out there.)

Being part of the movie I would hope she would've known, 'why' he made the movie.

I think a jury of 25 years ago might have been more lenient.

She was just happy to have an “acting” job, it’s all about the money, don’t have a clue what her underlying cause of action should be.

And besides, Debka says the video was a signal to do the 9-11 outrage in Libya, so she was actually working for al Quaida.

Deal with it, Ms. “actress”.

Sounds like the guy behind the film is an invented character. Nothing real is even known about him, what bits there are are contradicted by other made up facts.

They should start by looking for the guy who used to direct the "bad television" spoofs on SCTV. I think he's involved.

She’s trying to protect herself from Jihadis AND increase her exposure to help her “career”. A snowballs chance in post-nuclear Iran for both.

This whole thing may be a deflection.

“militant Christian activist”

A term used by the Godless left. Not sure what to think.

California man confirms role in anti-Islam film

American actors and actresses who appeared in "Innocence of Muslims" issued a joint statement Wednesday saying they were misled about the project and alleged that some of their dialogue was crudely dubbed during post-production.

Cindy may have a point!

So? It had nothing to do with the attacks, but now that the media is going out of their way to publicize this crap, the riots are now spreading.

If Obama/Hillary had kept their mouths shut about the movie, then most likely nothing more would have happened.

The self-proclaimed director of "Innocence of Muslims" initially claimed a Jewish and Israeli background. But others involved in the film said his statements were contrived as evidence mounted that the film's key player was a southern Californian Coptic Christian with a checkered past.

Interesting link...

Arabs love being offended - it gives them something to do... an outlet for their jealousy, hatred, rage and boredom. And it's a nice break from their traditional outlets of rage - their wives, mothers and teenage daughters.
