Ah, haven't seen (or heard) of that movie - thanks! Dylanfanatic - 27/04/2004 01:51:51 AM

Because it is against Islam to portray an image of Mohammad or close members of his family, the entire movie was filmed from the point of view of one of his uncles (Anthony Quinn). He has 'conversations' with Mohammad where we cannot hear Mo's voice. So it goes like this:

Interesting. I'll have to see if it's available at the local Blockbuster's sometime. Thanks for the tip.

Quinn: So where should we go now?

Mohammad speaks (a few moments of silence)

Quinn: To the Valley, you say? Well then, off we go.

Still a pretty good movie, but you know... how freaking silly. By the way, (I'm pretty sure you know this, but others will read this post) it's also unIslamic to portray images of Jesus or Moses, but Islamic countries have made an exception (in some cases by law, in some cases by looking the other way) for "The Passion" because it shows just how bad those darn Jews are.

Yeah, I knew that. I think it's for any religious figure from the Books, but I may be mistaken. It is saddening to see how some will warp the religion just to make ugly political statements. Not any better than the Jew-baiting plays of the Middle Ages. And to think I know personally plenty of Muslims (mostly Pakistanis) who are polite and rational people who treat non-Muslims with great respect. To have the equivalents of Fred Phelps in their religion must be a shame for a great many. But that's how people are, huh?
