New 'Allah' doc ready to raise a ruckus

Obviously some people think the Muslims aren't angry enough.

Sandi Dubowski, who won the Teddy gay and lesbian award in 2001 for his controversial doc "Trembling Before G-d," may cause an even bigger stir with "In the Name of Allah," which explores the struggles of homosexual Muslims.

And you thought they were pissed about the cartoons. Why don't we, as a planet, just all go to the Middle East and poke all the Muslims with a stick on a continous basis? I'm not advocating tip-toeing around these people, or sacrificing my civil liberties in order to keep them just below the murderous rage level. My problem is the next line in the article:

Dubowski vows to screen pic in every Muslim nation.

Why? Has anything in the past, I don't know, century or two given you any indication that the Muslim masses in the Middle East might enjoy this flick? They are threatening cartoonists with decapitation. Cartoonists. These people draw funny things, like cats who are fat and hate Mondays or a pussy-whipped Viking that has a stupid friend. The Muslims want these peoples blood and you think that the Islamic version of Brokeback Mountain that has 'Allah' in the title is going to be well-received?

Fair warning everyone.

It's not bad enough that we made a cartoon of Allah but now we have a
brokeback mountain version. Oh! when will the rioting end...it looks like never...If they had movie theatres in the middle east they would all self-distruct. Hey want to win this war! send them the South Park DVD

But it's not like they don't butt fuck each other already, women for procreation boys for recreation and all that. But maybe a film about it won't help.
