Morris Sadek (born December 12, 1942) is a Coptic American lawyer and activist who reportedly brought YouTube video Innocence of Muslims to the attention of the Arabic-speaking world, where it was denounced by protesters at American embassies and consulates. His Egyptian citizenship had previously been revoked for promoting the invasion of Egypt and attacking Islam.[1][2] A vocal opponent of Islam, he reportedly protested the Ground Zero Mosque on September 11, 2010, with crucifix, Bible, and American flag, stating that "Islam is a religion." On September 6, 2012, he is reported to have sent out mails to journalists containing the link to the 14-minute version of the film Innocence of Muslims.[3][2]
