he Israeli director of an anti-Muslim video has gone into hiding after a trailer for the video sparked violent protests in Libya and Egypt, resulting in the death of Chris Stevens, the U.S. ambassador to Libya, and three of his staff members. Speaking from an undisclosed location to The Associated Press, director Sam Bacile defended the video, which claims that the Prophet Muhammad was a womanizer and a pedophile. "Islam is a cancer, period," he said. Bacile, an Israeli citizen who lives in the U.S., claimed that the video was meant to help Israel by exposing Islam's deceptions.
