‘Innocence of Muslims’ Film Consultant Reports Death Threats

HEMET (AP) — The Riverside County man, who served as a consultant to the anti-Islamic film that has sparked anti-American demonstrations in the Middle East, says he has received numerous death threats.

The newspaper said Klein appeared agitated, waving the gun and saying he was standing up for his First Amendment rights in helping with the film.

Klein says he is prepared to die for those rights.

Klein was a script adviser for “Innocence of Muslims,” which mocks the Prophet Mohammad.
