If you were a muslim, or if you are, would you be offended by this cartoon documentary clip. Do you think the points made have substance or are just made to incite religious hatred or to entertain? I'm not a person that goes ''ow no, religons, especially islam...we can't talk about that, incase people thinnk we're racist." Religious debates are fine as long as they stay respectful in my opinion. And I find the clip very very funny, even though I disagree with some of the points made, espeically the last comment, I take it for what it is, entertainment.

I found that very very offencive (great vocabulary I have eh?)

To start with it was OK, but when it got to insulting the Prophet(SAW) i felt really quite angry and offended.

I don't get how you could call that a "cartoon documentary". Its just pure rubbish.

I don't mind dialogue, criticism, and debate. I enjoy that. But just throwing a load of insults and talking pathetic trash isn't contructive or entertaining (to me and 1.3bn other people worldwide at least)

The reason it's SO funny is that it's being presented by the devil...it highlights the narrowminded views of some people. Just as in faulty-towers the German scene is so funny, because Basil(SAW) is an idiot and a racist. In the same way this is funny because the devil is an idiot and a racist. This is in my favorites folder saved as 'TOO FUNNY FOR WORDS'

German Scene incase Rashid hasn't seen it:

Hmm, I still find it offencive.

I also find pictures/cartoons of Jesus(AS) offencive as well, BTW...

Oh, and anything insulting to Basil Faulty is also highly blasphemous! :mad:

Some parts were funny but it was a bit low generally I'd say. If you wan't something which mocks religion in a funny way then try watching Dogma, excellent film.

Its not the point of making fun of Muslims. I don't mind that.

Its the ridiculing and insulting the Prophet(SAW) that offended me. (in fact, just the drawings of the Prophet...)

That clip was hilarious, although i wouldn't blame someone who was Muslim getting a bit bent out of shape about it.

What do you mean when you say (SAW)? I know I'm ignorant, just wondering.

These pictures are offensive? Offence is subjective, isn't it? Therefore shouldn't anything that offends be censored by the state?! :rolleyes:

Can't people simply ignore things they find offensive? Or shun the creator of such offensive material?

lol, its not ignorance

It stands for the Arabic phrase: Sall Allahu alayhi Wa salam.

It means: May the peace and blessing of God be upon him (sometimes people use pbuh instead of saw)

Its a sign of respect and love for the Prophet. (in fact, to Muslims, for a Muslim to NOT say it is a sign of disrespect )

Hmm controversial one, I think a few people might object to it...and it would be almost impossible to impliment.

If Muslims immigrate to Britain, and they are certainly welcome to do so, they HAVE to accept European values of freedom.

If I go to Iran, Arabia or any other god damn Muslim nation and insult Mohammad, I give all the Muslims their the right to shoot me that second, but don't come to Europe and demand from us complete respect for your religion.


My ancestors did not fight the Vatican, the Church, the Nazis, the monarchy, Communists and all other *******s so that intolerant Muslims can come over here and suppress our golden freedom.
