‘Innocence’ Trailer Maker Unrepentant

The maker of the crude Innocence of Muslims YouTube trailer stands by his work. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula says he went to “great lengths” to depict the truth about the Prophet Muhammad—very much as he sees it—and said he wants to let “the American people and the people of the world know this message that I believe in.” The 55-year-old Egyptian Coptic Christian said he had grown angrier since the 2009 massacre at Fort Hood in Texas. Nakoula recently pleaded guilty to violating his release for a bank-fraud sentence.
