Jewish Groups Fear 'Blood Libel' Over Anti-Islam Film


Jewish groups have expressed fears of “another blood libel” against Jews due to the anti-Islam film that has been said to have triggered the widespread riots in Muslim countries. While there have been conflicting reports as to the identity of those behind the inflammatory film that is allegedly responsible for provoking the recent wave of Mideast violence, reports indicate that it was in fact produced by Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a 55-year-old Coptic Christian living in California, not by an Israeli-American Jew who had identified himself under the pseudonym of Sam Bacile.
