Cummon - even you have to admit it is 10x funnier than anything Sacha Baron Cohen has ever done..

With its crude production values, including false bushy beards, thick American accents, wooden acting and a clunky script, it is clearly an attempt to take the piss out of the Muslims!!

The thing that made me chuckle was the Mohammed = Jesus analogy.. Plausible?

Well that's not saying much. A housebrick is ten times as funny as anything he has done.

But seriously - check out the guy playing Mo.. he looks, and acts,  like a stereotypical 'Jesus'!!

Oh.. in case you haven't worked it out - this is why the Muslim world is attacking everything Western.

Seriously, where is their sense of Humour?

You would have thought Christians would be more pissed at their saviour being portrayed as a Paedobear!!

A little bit too close to home I think.
The film is based on the biography of Ibn Ishaq and although it is highly satirized, most of what I have seen in the extracts of this film are contained within his account of Mohammad's life story.

Islam have tried very hard to distance them selves from Ibn Ishaq's writing, especially since the rest of the world have become interested and the translation ( by Alfred Guillaume) is  widley available now. But Ibn Ishaq's is the first and arguably the most authorative version of Mohammad's life story accounts, although muslim scholars would deny this now.

I can understand why they are upset and angry though. But I think the over reaction we have seen lately just makes people like the ones who made this film, feel even more justified in their villification of Islam.

It's not any more offensive than numerous depictions of "Jesus" recently..


I personally doubt 99.999999% of these twats; who claim they have actually taken offense in the most extreme of ways, and killing and burning stuff, have even ever seen the furkin video....

I guess they have just been told to take offense and like the uneducated thickwads they are, have just bang their heads with thickbricks and done exactly as they are told....

We used to call that the "Dark Ages", but there is no excuse for such behaviour in these supposed enlightened times...

Oh yes there is - We call it "Islam", a religion that is 600 years behind current thinking.....

That, to a greater or lesser extent, is the norm for religions.

And until medical science finds a way to strengthen the ability to reason, revealing to all that the cause of the cosmos is unknown as yet, it will continue thus.

Hi Farmer, I totally agree, but most of us have learned to take this on the chin, even though it upsets and hurts us. Also the teachings of Jesus are very different to the teachings of Mohammad, Jesus believed in turning the other cheek and he taught us to pray for those who would persecute us or treat us as enemies. In the account of Ibn Ishaq Mohammad personally beheaded approximatley 600-800 people in the market place in Medina, at leat one of these was a woman, this (according to the writer) was in punishment for making fun of and disrespecting him.

Possibly not, but I wouldn't want to watch it either if I were a Muslim, i have never seen the life of Brian or Jerry Springer the opera for instance, I know that they would probably upset or offend me so I ignore them, just like the TV if you don't like what is showing, there is always the off button!

I really believe people who would be prepared to behave this way would not need any encouragement, they are that way inclined already, add some of their scriptures and the lawless regimes in the Countries they reside and it is a recipe for disaster.

But I think we should remember that not all Muslims think and behave in this way, it is probably still a very small minority at the moment.
Islam have been responsible for many good things also.

Interesting there H.

You "have never seen the life of Brian or Jerry Springer the opera for instance".

How do you "know that they would probably upset or offend" you if you have never seen them, especially "Life of Brian"?

This seems a typical reaction, like that of the Muslims; that you have been 'told' to how to feel against said productions.


Would you have demonstrated against them if you had been around at the time?
