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

Posted on 03/10/2014 6:03:02 AM PDT by C19fan

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 . . . . .

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

Maybe not... a respected Islamic institution could be an ‘institution’ where all the Muslim crazies are ... well, intstitutionalized.

But I guess there aren’t THAT many giggle jackets on earth!! :)

Remember that low rent individual who made a movie in California that slammed Mohammed, and Obama ordered him arrested for whatever?

It would make a fine hoax to put out that Obama had ordered that all prints (ha, digital) of the movie be seized, and that director Darren Aronofsky be arrested on some utterly bogus charge, after complaining that his movie offended Islam.

I believe the Muslims have Noah’s ark landing on a different mountain than Mt. Ararat.

Time to arrest Russel Crowe.

Actually, I was wondering: how long will it be until we hear of some editing due to “concerns with movie time length” or “artistic considerations”, all of which will, oops, just so happen to make the film palatable to Muslims in the end. What a coincidink that will be.

The Quran says the flood came because people would not worship the one God.

The Bible says the flood came because "the earth was corrupt before God, and the earth was filled with violence".

I'm guessing that the Biblical version hits them where it hurts.

I issue a forqua against Islam for bastardizing the Holy Bible. Mohammed was a pervert warlord and his followers are dupes.

Well John Huston directed and played Noah in a 1966 movie called The Bible In the beginning but a fatwa on him might be difficult since he cashed his chips in in 1987.
