This supports what I said here:
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula apparently deceived many people in order to get his crude movie made. It has even been suggested that he is a jihadist who made the movie in order to provide a provocation that Islamic supremacists could use to push for destruction of the freedom of speech. But no matter who he really is, no matter how terrible of a man he may be, no matter how checkered his past or present or both may be, make no mistake: he is a political prisoner. He has been arrested not for the technicality of the probation violation, but for insulting Muhammad. His arrest is a symbol of America’s capitulation to the Sharia.
The protests are not about the film. The protests are to intimidate the U.S. into criminalizing criticism of Islam. Nakoula Basseley Nakoula is nothing more than the fall guy who became the first offender against the new federal crime of blasphemy against Islam.
Rehman Malik is not fooled by blather about probation violations. He knows what Nakoula’s arrest is all about, and that Nakoula is a political prisoner, and he is thrilled about it. It’s yet another victory for the ummah, courtesy Barack Obama.
“Anti-Islam film: Malik claims credit for producer’s arrest,” by Huma Imtiaz for the Express Tribune, October 7, 2012
In yet another bizarre instant, courtesy Rehman Malik, the interior minister appeared on Saturday to claim credit for the arrest of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, the producer of anti-Islam movie “Innocence of Muslims”.
“I don’t claim entire credit, but it is a credit for the Muslim Ummah, the credit goes to my government. In fact, it is our government and the entire world which took up this derogatory documentary film at all international forums,” Malik told a news conference at Pakistan’s Embassy in Washington on Saturday.
When pressed on the point that Nakoula had been arrested for violating terms of his bail in a separate case, Malik said, “I pointed out that he is a fugitive of law, I did have information. And perhaps that voice reached the right quarters, and he was arrested, it is not me who has made the arrest, but I became instrumental in appealing to the United States.”
About his meeting with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at the State Department, Malik said he thanked Clinton and President Barack Obama for condemning the anti-Islam film.
Making a case for the extradition of Dr Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neurosurgeon jailed in the United States for terror links, Malik said she could serve rest of her jail term in Pakistan.
He said that he had raised the issue of Dr Aafia Siddiqui in his meeting with FBI Director Robert Mueller, who said the suggestion could be considered.
Malik said he had also written to the US attorney general on the matter and would release the contents of his letter soon.
The interior minister said he also raised the issue of enforced disappearances in his meetings with US officials.
“I highlighted how aggression is coming to us from Afghanistan into Balochistan and through Mohmand Agency and Khyber. How arms and ammunition are being shifted to Pakistan in the hands of so-called Azad Baloch and Maulvi Faqirullah and Fazlullah,” he added.
Asked about the Haqqani Network, the interior minister said, “The Haqqanis are not Pakistanis. That is the wrong notion, the Haqqanis are Afghans located in Afghanistan. I have emphasised that while the US is concentrating on the Haqqani Network, what about the other networks? There are so many stakeholders who are against peace in Afghanistan. Both Afghanistan and Pakistan are victims of war.”
When Islamic supremacists are confronted with the behavior of their own, they inevitably disclaim any connection to the offending party: Osama bin Laden was not a Muslim, the Haqqanis are not Pakistanis, and on and on with the nonsense.
