Steven Klein, a Californian Vietnam War veteran, who says he was an advisor in the making of a film about the Prophet Mohammad, defends the film and says the content was based on research.
The release of the film has created a wave of anger and violence across the Muslim world, especially the Middle East. In Libya, the violence even claimed the lives of the U.S. Ambassador and three consulate workers.
Klein said he was an expert on Islam and his role was to ensure the film's accuracy.
A U.S. activist group says Klein is a Christian with ties to right-wing extremists, a charge the man himself denies. He, however has no qualms in agreeing to his pursuit of radical Muslims in America, prompted by Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and his son’s involvement in the Iraq war. He says he expects to be killed but will die hoping his grand children will be “safe from these monsters."
