Hollywood Crusading Again to Revise History

FrontPage magazine.com :: Crusading Against History by Robert Spencer

You knew when you heard that Hollywood was making an "epic" movie on the Crusades that of course Muslims would be the tolerant and peaceful ones. Why would they do this, you say? Well, because Hollywood has an aversion to Christianity.

But then, nothing will satisfy the likes of Islamic apologists:
Yet despite Kingdom of Heaven’s numerous whitewashes of history and strenuous efforts to portray the Muslims of the Crusader era in a favorable light, Islamic apologist Khaled Abou El Fadl, a professor of Islamic law at the University of California, is in a froth about the film: “In my view,” he raged, “it is inevitable – I’m willing to risk my reputation on this – that after this movie is released there will be hate crimes committed directly because of it. People will go see it on a weekend and decide to teach some turbanhead a lesson.” Of course, this is less an indictment of the film than of the American people. I think it very likely that there will be no hate crimes against Muslims committed because of this film — and I hope that in that event Dr. Abou El Fadl’s reputation will be accorded the treatment it deserves.

Yup - I can see it now. The Muslims in the U.S. will be even FURTHER persecuted because of the is "epic" piece of tripe. Just like they have been since Sept. 11th, 2001. I think CAIR should sue the producer, director and all of the actors for this indictment produced against Islam.

As Robert Spencer writes:
In any event, Kingdom of Heaven cost over $150 million to make, features an all-star cast, and is being touted as “a fascinating history lesson.” Fascinating, maybe — but only as evidence of the lengths to which modern Westerners are willing to go to delude themselves.

Think of the religion of peace (pieces??) the next time Al Jazeera releases another beheading from the "militants" of Islam!
