My dear harrak the hyena is back for more and now the fun begins:
As for 3Adil Imam his name is not Adil Imame as you wrote.
And no the title of the movie is: "al-Irhabi" that was produced in 1993 in response to the assasination of Farag Foda (a secularist) by Muslim fundies in Cairo. And as usual the police had to be present during the screenings of the movie as Muslim fundies did not like it but Egyptians were lining up to see it. Ah the warm and fuzzy islam.
And your title: "Terroism & Shish kabob" is bogus because of the following:
1. Terrorism means Irhab and not Irhabi
2. And Mu3tamid wrote in Arabic: al-Irhab wa al-kabab and then he translated it as: Terrorism and shish (sic) kabob! So where is that shish coming from? So much for our friend Mu3tamid al-mutangeles wa al-mustaghrib.
I hope you are learning something as i suspect that you might be allergic to books, analog v.digital? who cares! as books will always be there. So much for Muslim education
For the readers Cairo was the home of the great writer Naguib Mahfooz.. And as part of the Cairo elite (most of them are secularists and religious minorities eg: Copts) he defied the system and Islamists by writing a book that mocked religion Islam inculded as in his book: "Awlad al-Gabalawi" which was first published in Lebanon and then when it became availabe in Cairo I understand people were lining up to get a copy from Madbouli the bookstore. He for sure was a great writer.
Now the rule of movie industry in Egypt and the Arab world is not unlike the rule of Hollywood movies for the rest of the world or the Bollywood movies for India and the rest of South East Asia. It attracted secular Msulims and members of the religious minorities and the end result was musicals, soaps, and comedies that are very much loved by every Arab with the exception of our dear Mu3tamid. And what is wrong with teaching the arabs about sex? I think it is good as it is known that people have sex.
For anyone who is interested in knowing about the movie industry in Egypt I suggest reading:
"Dream Makers on the Nile. A portrait of Egyptian Cinema" by Mustafa Darwish published by the American University in Cairo. 1998.
So what did you learn today our dear harrak? Oh I forgot that you are allergic to books but not to analog v. digital technology. Most likely you learned nothing and for this I pity you.
As for the fact that you live in Canada or which Muslim place did you come from does not interest me in the least.
Now here is my little qasida for today:
Haraak yaqool ihahu 3ajami wa inahu musta3rib (wannabe Arab)
Wa ini aqul inahu mutangels wa mustaghrib.
My dear harrak this very much sums up what you are really all about. Oh I forgot that you know no Arabic. May be you can ask our friend Mu3tamid al-jahil.
The hyena will be back for more.
