Karim Saleh stars as Ziad Jarrah in...

Jihadinator 3: The Infidels Must Die!

"a brilliant film" about "[...] real people, they are flesh and blood people. They had histories, they had families, they had people they loved and were loved back."-Sam Wollaston, The Guardian

"THE must-see film of the year!"-An O. Nymous

"a serious, well-researched attempt to make us see
how ordinary-seeming young Muslims
could end up willing to kill thousands of people."
-James Walton, The Daily Telegraph

Mr. Wollaston, I don't ever want to hear the words "beautiful" and "terrorist" mentioned in the same paragraph again.

From The Daily Telegraph... An excerpt:

Alice Perman, the film's co-writer, conceded that Jarrah - who is torn between jihad and an ordinary life in the West - was one of the more sympathetic terrorists.

Former tutors, flatmates and colleagues whom she spoke to "all talked about this likeable man", she said.

"We chose him because his story was less straightforward. He was a complicated character and would have a greater resonance with the audience."

Karim Saleh, a Lebanese actor who played Jarrah, said: "It's hard to be sympathetic to someone who allowed himself to be so dominated by people and ideas, and absorbed by a group."

I'm inclined to agree with Saleh. I myself, am torn between nuking Iran and assasinating Khamenei... but I don't expect any sympathy. By the way, Alice, which audience were you hoping this terrorist scum-bag would "resonate" with?

it will be too late,"

Meanwhile...the Department of Holy Shiite is running a new advertisement on Iranian television:
