Anti Muslim Film Maker is An Ex Convict!


 

While the Media has been abuzz with the protests in Egypt,Libya,Yemen,US Ambassador’s Killing,Blocking of sites on trailer of the Film calling The Prophet ‘womanizer,cheat and mad’, the earlier purported Director of The Film Sam Bacile was described as a Jew and was hiding in Israel,it is now known that the Man behind the  Film is an Ex convict named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a Californian with a conviction for bank fraud.

Vilolence erupts after the Film Trailer calling Prophet's Name.

It was thought the film had been directed by a Sam Bacile. But no trace of him could be found and the trail led to Nakoula, a Coptic Christian — the biggest Christian church in the Middle East and Egypt.

Confronted, he admitted being involved. He got a 21-month jail term for the bank fraud in 2010 and was ordered not to use computers or the Internet.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, told The Associated Press in an interview outside Los Angeles that he was manager for the company that produced “Innocence of Muslims,” which mocked Muslims and the prophet Mohammed and may have caused inflamed mobs that attacked U.S. missions in Egypt and Libya. He provided the first details about a shadowy production group behind the film.

Nakoula denied he directed the film and said he knew the self-described filmmaker, Sam Bacile. But the cell phone number that AP contacted Tuesday to reach the filmmaker who identified himself as Sam Bacile traced to the same address near Los Angeles where AP found Nakoula. Federal court papers said Nakoula’s aliases included Nicola Bacily, Erwin Salameh and others.

Nakoula told the AP that he was a Coptic Christian and said the film’s director supported the concerns of Christian Copts about their treatment by Muslims.

Nakoula denied he had posed as Bacile. During a conversation outside his home, he offered his driver’s license to show his identity but kept his thumb over his middle name, Basseley. Records checks by the AP subsequently found it and other connections to the Bacile persona.

The AP located Bacile after obtaining his cell phone number from Morris Sadek, a conservative Coptic Christian in the U.S. who had promoted the anti-Muslim film in recent days on his website. Egypt’s Christian Coptic population has long decried what they describe as a history of discrimination and occasional violence from the country’s Arab majority.

Pastor Terry Jones of Gainesville, Fla., who burned copies of the Quran on the ninth anniversary of 9/11, said he spoke with the movie’s director on the phone Wednesday and prayed for him. He said he has not met the filmmaker in person, but the man contacted him a few weeks ago about promoting the movie.

“I have not met him. Sam Bacile, that is not his real name,” Jones said. “I just talked to him on the phone. He is definitely in hiding and does not reveal his identity. He was quite honestly fairly shook up concerning the events and what is happening. A lot of people are not supporting him.”

The film was implicated in protests that resulted in the burning of the U.S. consulate Tuesday in the eastern Libyan city of Benghazi.’

US Town Sold for $900,000, Buyer Revealed.

When is the US being sold?

Does the United States of America have a Government?

Shame that a part of your Country is sold.

In life, every thing is not measured in Dollars.

Waiting for the Right price?

Does the United States of America have a Government?

Sold to some one from Vietnam?

Ironical.

BUFORD,Wyoming
BUFORD,Wyoming,USA

Story:

The town of Buford, Wyoming – population 1 – was sold for $900,000 to an unidentified buyer from Vietnam on Thursday after an 11-minute Internet auction that attracted worldwide interest.

The tiny Western town garnered online viewers and bidders from 46 countries for the sale of 10-plus acres with a convenience store, gas station and modular home located in southeastern Wyoming between Cheyenne and Laramie.

The buyer, who wished to remain anonymous, flew to Wyoming from Vietnam for a purchase he likened to “the American dream,” according to a statement released by Williams & Williams, the Oklahoma auction house handling the sale.

“Owning a piece of property in the U.S. has been my dream,” the buyer said in the statement.

Don Sammons, long the town’s sole resident, moved with his wife, Terry, from Los Angeles to the Buford area in 1980. In 1992, six years after his wife died, Sammons purchased the town.

Sammons decided to auction off the Interstate 80 hamlet, billed as “the nation’s smallest town” and named after Civil War Union Army General John Buford, to move to Colorado to be near his adult son.

Buyer Revealed.

Vietnamese businessman Pham Dinh Nguyen flew to the U.S. for the first time, drove to a tiny, frigid trading outpost and bought his own piece of the American dream: Buford, Wyoming – population 1.

Nguyen’s name was not released last week when he won the auction for Buford – billed as the nation’s smallest town – but he has since drawn attention in Vietnamese media and on social networks. Many are lauding him for showing the world that Vietnam has moved far beyond war and poverty.

Nguyen, who bid $900,000 for Buford, runs a trade and distribution company in southern Ho Chi Minh City. He said that although he is not exactly sure what he will do with the town just off Interstate 80, he expects to use it to sell items made in Vietnam.

“Frankly, I just see Buford as part of the United States: A large and potential market for Vietnamese goods,” Nguyen told state-controlled media. “Buford is likely to be the showroom for such goods.”

Nguyen, 38, has been quoted widely by local media since the April 5 sale, but he did not respond to emailed requests for comment from The Associated Press or return phone messages left with his company, International Distribution Services. An employee confirmed that Nguyen bought the town.

His purchase impressed many Vietnamese. Businessman Tran Thanh Tung said Friday in Hanoi that he was “surprised, but also proud.”

It’s “something that one could not imagine few years ago,” he said.

Most Expensive Cities of the World.


Mumbai stands at 130,Karachi 131.

Chart showing Costliest Cities.
Costliest Cities of the World.

 

Zurich is the most expensive city in the world, according to the latest Worldwide Cost of Living Survey from the Economist Intelligence Unit, which found the four priciest metros are all in Switzerland and Japan.

The survey compares the price of hundreds of products and services, including food, rent, and transportation, in 131 cities. The prices are then indexed to New York City, which keeps a score of 100. Zurich knocked off Tokyo by a score of 170 to 166, which indicates that living in those cities is 70% and 66% more expensive than living in NYC, as measured in U.S. dollars. No American cities cracked the top 10. (If you find it hard to believe that so many cities in the world are more expensive than every U.S. metro, keep in mind that real estate prices aren’t factored into the survey.)

Looking deeper down the list, some surprises emerge. New York City fell below Los Angeles into a tie with Chicago. Globetrotters might be surprised to learn that Cleveland finished just above Rio. The three cities at the bottom of the list were Karachi, Pakistan, Mumbai, and Tehran, all of which finished around 50, suggesting that they are half as expensive as New York City. This great graph from The Economist offers a good sampling of large metros:

Osama’s Plan for Carnage-Bin Laden Journal.

A U.S. officials told FoxNews said that the records currently in the hands of the United States contains the ideas and plot terror operations.

From behind the walls of his hiding, bin Laden continues to communicate with the branches of Al Qaeda, particularly Yemen. And although not yet completed sufficient evidence, he allegedly was behind the terror business day of Christmas 2009 at the Detroit Airport, USA.

“Do not limit the attack to the City of New York,” said Osama in writing on the notes.Any other city in the journal is Los Angeles, or another small town. ”Spread the target.”

Osama also stressed to pengikutinya how many Americans who have become victims, in order to rid the country of the Arab world. He said, a small attack would not be enough. To his followers, he calls the thousands – the number of victims is not far different from the tragedy of 11 September 2009 terror attacks.

Meanwhile, as the site loaded CNN, bin Laden is known not only send messages on its network, the evidence also shows that he received a response to his message was.

Osama’s diary also refers to the important dates in the U.S. calendar: July 4 U.S. Independence Day, Christmas, and 10-year anniversary 9 / 11.

He pointed the network in certain directions. One of his missives to his supporters was to stop focusing on the big cities, particularly New York, and instead target Los Angeles and other smaller cities.The missives were sent via plug-in computer storage devices called flash drives. The devices were ferried to Osama’s compound by couriers, a process that is slow but difficult to track.

Osama’s diary included significant dates that he preferred for attacking American targets, including the Fourth of July and the upcoming 10th anniversary of the Sept 11 attacks.

He also urged his followers not to focus only on planes but to target trains too – an instruction that chimes with last week’s warning from the US authorities alerting people to be vigilant on trains, though they were not aware of any specific plot.

Osama also schemed about ways to sow political dissent in Washington and play political figures against one another, officials said.

Meanwhile, US Attorney-General Eric Holder has said the raid on Osama’s lair was “not an assassination”, the BBC reported.

Mr Holder told the broadcaster that the operation was a “kill or capture mission” and Osama would have been captured if he had surrendered.

He said the safety of the US special forces troops who carried out the operation was priority.

“If the possibility had existed, if there was the possibility of a feasible surrender, that would have occurred,” Mr Holder said. “But … the protection of the force that went into that compound, was I think uppermost in our minds.” Agencies

US senator describes ‘gruesome’ Osama photos
A Republican who sits on the United States Senate Armed Services Committee viewed the death photographs of Osama bin Ladenon Wednesday and said the pictures – some gruesome – leave no doubt the Al Qaeda leader is dead.”Absolutely no question about it … That was him. He’s gone. He’s history,” Mr James Inhofe said on CNN.

Mr Inhofe said he saw 15 photos – nine taken at the scene of the May 2 raid on a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan; three from the USS Carl Vinson, where Osama’s body was prepared for burial at sea; and three older photos to compare for positive identification.

Mr Inhofe described some photos that showed brain matter protruding from an eye socket. But the senator, a proponent of releasing the pictures, said he has not changed his mind after viewing them.

He said he thinks at least two photos from the USS Vinson showing the body being cleaned should be released because they depict an easily identifiable Osama. Reuters

Flying House- Video


The people at National Geographic have built a house modeled after the one in the movie UP! for a new TV series called How Hard Can It Be?. The house flew for about an hour and reached 10,000 feet. There was no report of anyone spotting The Beast of Paradise Falls.

http://idle.slashdot.org/story/11/03/07/191232/Crew-Builds-a-Flying-House-Modeled-After-emUPem?from=rss

Yesterday morning, March 5 at dawn, National Geographic Channel and a team of scientists, engineers, and two world-class balloon pilots successfully launched a 16′ X 16′ house 18′ tall with 300 8′ colored weather balloons from a private airfield east of Los Angeles, and set a new world record for the largest balloon cluster flight ever attempted. The entire experimental aircraft was more than 10 stories high, reached an altitude of over 10,000 feet, and flew for approximately one hour.

The filming of the event, from a private airstrip, will be part of a new National Geographic Channel series called How Hard Can it Be?, which will premiere in fall 2011.
