Coptic Christians on LI condemn anti-Islam film

WOODBURY - Details on the filmmaker behind an inflammatory anti-Islam video are emerging, as anti-American protests and demonstrations continue across the Muslim world over the film. The clip, produced in California and posted on YouTube, shows the prophet Muhammed in a bad light. Investigators say it was created by a man named Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, a self-described Coptic Christian. Coptic Christians on Long Island are condemning the film. Many say that while the filmmaker may have been exercising his freedom of speech, his views do not represent that of the church or the community.Al-Qaida urges more embassy attacks around the worldU.S. braces for more violence over anti-Islam filmOfficials: Pentagon moving 2 warships to Libyan coast
