Yeah so the NYT says an Israeli-American named Sam Bacile raises funds and directs an anti-Islam movie and posts the trailer (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qmodVun16Q4&feature=youtu...) on July 2. The first Arabic comments are from 2 months ago. 11k views and 2 months later protests erupt at the American embassy in Cairo and consulate in Benghazi.

Edit: Video has been pulled from youtube but the account(http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4DjVszAn4GAyzgsjtkJONg) it was uploaded by links(ed) to this google+ account (https://plus.google.com/u/0/100558867757140477111/posts) of Sam Bacile who has one person in his circle. This man (https://plus.google.com/u/0/110003734376972911289/posts) Mohamed Hamed El-Sherbini according to his g+ works for something called the Arab Parliamentary newspaper and attended Mansoura University.

Wow. That trailer is breathtakingly bad.
