    Understandable that a Coptic would be quite motivated to make this film, but where did he get the $5 million?

    How did the Youtube clips cause such a reaction in the Middle East?

    He had backers, obviously.  So he's not a lone wolf.

      Money appears to have come from ultra right wing with some Israeli ties. No reason two parallel motivations might cooperate. What's interesting is that the film seems to have been re-dubbed recently. I'm thinking the election isn't going well here. There are a couple lawsuits pending.
