;) Me too ... But who will write it ? ... Perhaps we both ? ;) ... But anyway, Hollywood will never take up the challenge ... Al-Buraq might anger Hollywood's Saudi sponsors and Moslem viewers ... And there is nothing most of those smiling celebrities are scared of more than angry Moslem mobs."

I think we actually could create a believable action movie script along the lines of the Indiana Jones series - based on a conspiracy to harness the buraq technology. The best time for this would be 1941 - we could have as a subplot the Nazi attempt to unearth its secrets , American and Russian spies in the Middle east watching what the Nazi's were doing and brilliant Russian and Ukrainian Jewish scientists working feverishly to stay ahead of the Institute of Quranic Science researchers - and all groups hopin both to paralyze each other. It would be like Peenemunde - but with 3 main players .

But you are right - there would be a huge temper tantrum thrown by those in the Muslim world completely devoid of a sense of humour.

A very sad state of affairs that is then - don't you think? It can't even be suggested that an absurd extension to an existing but absurd fable even be mentioned in public for fear of arousing the 'sensitivities' of people who think it's quite OK to watch the beheading of apostates and the stoning to death of women who might have had an affair.
