Day after day, the false story was kept alive, on social media, blogs and newspapers.
Yes, it was, and Eric was the principal promoter of this non event. You can read him mentioning the bounty in his appeals for money.
Here he is on Israel National Radio saying four Pakistani Newspapers have called for his death.@ 10:00
There is no truth to this. Later, during the broadcast he implies his case is working its way to Eric Holder.
Boasting, lying, incitement, fraud, this is Eric.Someone kept fanning the flames to keep this story alive.
The someone was Eric Allen Bell.a ridiculous sum of money in the form of a bounty (as reported in the Pakistani Tribune and other publications)
Now the bounty is ridiculous?
He was not saying that last year.
In fact, that is not what he was saying this year. He is a liar.
While his fraud was on going, I was bringing people's attention to what he was doing, and he told his followers I was "bizarre". I have the screen shot.
Eric's follwers then came over, to my thread on Facebook, and called me names.A Pakistani politician offered a bounty for "the filmmaker" and other high profile Muslim leaders followed suit.
I am not sure what he is referring to here. I think he means Ghulam Ahmad Bilour, Iran's Federal Minister for Railways who issued a $100,000 bounty on the maker of "Innocence of Muslims", without ever mentioning Eric Allen Bell, at all.
I am unable to find any mention of Eric Allen Bell either in the main article, or the talk section of Wikipedia's "Reactions to Innocence of Muslims"
Eric Allen Bell's reaction was over blown, and manipulative. It was part of his campaign of fraud.My Facebook inbox was literally flooded with explicit death threats from Muslims around the world, including the United States. I had initially contacted Robert Spencer and asked him what I should do.
Eric is the kind of leader who loves authority, but runs from responsibility. Eric was taunting Muslims for weeks by calling for bombing, and/or nuking Mecca. His slogan was about spreading napalm. Several times he has called for the destruction of Islam.
There is no point bringing up Robert Spencer, or the FBI. Eric's decision to run was his own.
By the way, I told Robert Spencer that Eric was here to siphon off funds, gain power, split the movement, and pursue his New Age agenda. Robert Spencer has told me, twice now, that I was "right about him all along".
I have the emails.The FBI recommended I take steps to protect myself
What would you expect the FBI to say? I can assure you the FBI did not tell him to engage in a fraudulent campaign involving a phony bounty, misleading statements about his status with the FBI, and non-existent death threats in Pakistani newspapers in his appeals for money.a PR disaster.
Well, that is what he says now, but if you read the contemporaneous record you will see that business was good.
]I had posted something on Facebook which was critical of religion in general.
What he posted was a stream of statements claiming the CJM is being held back by Christians. This is a self serving lie. He did this after he left, and is still doing it. For the better part of 2012 he hid his New Age beliefs, lied through his teeth about his beliefs, repeatedly.Contrary to what was in the rumor mill, I was not “kicked out” of the movement.
Eric 's decision to leave was strictly his own. Robert Spencer, Eric Stacklebeck, Glenn Beck, Pat Robertson, none of these people had any thing, what so ever, to do with making Eric leave.
However, he is trying to spin a narrative that he was forced out, and now persecuted. It just isn't true.
Previously, he told us that he left after finding Christians using his work. Now we have a modified version. It isn't true either.
I think this should clear up the bulk of Larry Estavan’s (Living Engine) allegations concerning me as a person who has committed fraud. He has stated that he contacted the FBI with this accusation. This is of course baseless and arguably it is libel.
Eric did commit fraud. I consulted experts, and they assured me he was doing this, and told me I could contact the FBI over it. I did this, and he left within days. Immediately after which, he began unleashing on Christians.
He based his appeals for money on the phony bounty, exaggerated threats in Pakistani newspapers, and used vintage Eric Allen Bell double talk to mislead everyone that he was under FBI protection. I do not know if my reporting Eric to the FBI, and his leaving the CJM are related events, but he did commit fraud last year.
Eric Allen Bell has threatened to sue before, and he is free to sue me any time he wants. I am more than ready for him.There are countless blogs in which this individual has obsessively attacked by character and made claims that I am committing fraud. Should this continue, I may pursue legal action.
I have to laugh. Eric has engaged in a campaign of maligning, and defaming me online. I have multiple screen shots of his doing this. There is never any substance to what he says, and this is in response to my pointing out his lies, and hostility.
]I am not a cult leader.
This is a partial list of traits of dangerous cult leaders. Eric Allen Bell meets all these criteria.
· He has a grandiose idea of who he is and what he can achieve.
· Has a sense of entitlement - expecting to be treated special at all times.
· Is exploitative of others by asking for their money or that of relatives putting others at financial risk.
· Is arrogant and haughty in his behavior or attitude.
· Has an exaggerated sense of power (entitlement) that allows him to bend rules and break laws.
· Publicly devalues others as being inferior, incapable, or not worthy.
· Is frequently boastful of accomplishments.
· Needs to be the center of attention and does things to distract others to insure that he or she is being noticed by arriving late, using exotic clothing, overdramatic speech, or by making theatrical entrances.
· Doesn’t seem to listen well to needs of others, communication is usually one-way in the form of dictates.
· Haughtiness, grandiosity, and the need to be controlling is part of his personality.
· Behaves as though people are objects to be used, manipulated or exploited for personal gain.
· Anyone who criticizes or questions him is called an “enemy.”
· Refers to non-members or non-believers in him as “the enemy.”
· Acts imperious at times, not wishing to know what others think or desire.
· Has “magical” answers or solutions to problems.
· Is superficially charming.
· Habitually puts down others as inferior and only he is superior.
· Has a certain coldness or aloofness about him that makes others worry about who this person really is and or whether they really know him.
· Treats others with contempt and arrogance.
· Doesn’t seem to feel guilty for anything he has done wrong nor does he apologize for his actions.
· Believes he possesses the answers and solutions to world problems.
· Believes himself to be a deity or a chosen representative of a deity.
· Rigid, unbending, or insensitive describes how this person thinks.
· Tries to control others in what they do, read, view, or think.
· Uses enforcers or sycophants to insure compliance from members or believers.
· Doesn’t think there is anything wrong with himself – in fact sees himself as perfection or “blessed.”There is a lot of material, primarily YouTube videos, out there which warns Evangelicals that the "New Age" people are coming to destroy Christianity and that this is a sign of the end times. Is it any wonder, given the story I have recounted above, that I would get lumped in to this?
Again, notice how this isn't his fault. It's the Christians, and their videos; they are doing this to him.
In conclusion, Eric declared a death fatwa on himself in 2012. He then lied to his audience about this to gain attention, and money. This is fraud.
To any one who continues to accept Eric's version of events of 2012 in defiance of the public record, I say to you, you are in the cult of Eric Allen Bell. He can literally get you to see 1,000,000,000,000,000 as 10,000,000.
