Fatwa issued against Russell Crowe's new £75million blockbuster Noah as three Arab countries ban..
UK Daily Mail ^ | March 10, 2014 | Dan Bloom

One of the world's most respected Islamic institutions has issued a fatwa against a Hollywood epic about Noah's Ark because it 'contradicts the teachings of Islam'. Russell Crowe's £75million film Noah has also been banned in three Arab countries after religious leaders complained that it depicted the Biblical figure - who is also a holy messenger in the Koran. Due to premiere later this month, the blockbuster will not show in Qatar, Bahrain or the United Arab Emirates and several other countries are expected to follow suit.

Well, I’m not a Russell Crowe fan, and the ads for Noah make it look like a complete load, but if it pisses off Muslims, it can’t be that bad.

The mere fact that it SHOWS Noah is enough to drive them crazy. And Western liberals are going to reach agreement with them how??

And you have to love this at the end:

The film is not the first to stoke controversy among Muslims. . . . A 2012, an amateur Youtube video deriding the Prophet Mohammad which was produced in California stoked protests throughout the region, and may have contributed to a deadly militant raid in Libya which killed the U.S. ambassador and three other American staff.

Repeat a lie long enough . . . . .

Meh. Saying you shouldn’t have sex with a nine year old girl contradicts the teaching of Islam. What else is new.

Will pass on the Russell Crowe “Noah” movie, waiting for the “Heaven Is For Real” movie to come out.
