Given the last two weeks and our little run in with Brick Partition, you really couldn't make this up:


Sacha Baron Cohen threatened by Palestinian terrorists over Bruno film







Sacha Baron Cohen has been threatened by the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, a Palestinian terrorist organisation, after it took offence at its portrayal in his film Bruno

The Martyrs Brigades, a group of West Bank Palestinian insurgents, said it was "very upset" that it appeared in the film starring Baron Cohen's flamboyant Austrian homosexual character and would "respond in a suitable way", according to a statement published on the Right-wing website called World Net Daily.

In the film, Bruno, a television journalist interviews Ayman Abu Aita, who is claimed in the movie to be the leader of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades.


Mr Baron Cohen's character implores Mr Abu Aita to capture him, saying, "I want to be famous. I want the best guys in the business to kidnap me. Al-Qaeda is so 2001."

Mr Abu Aita and his associates were angry by his portrayal according to the statement published by the Jerusalem bureau of the World Net Daily.

"We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man. The movie was part of a conspiracy against the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades," the statement read.

"According to what we checked there was was no meeting about the real context of the film," the statement added "This was a dirty use of our brother, Ayman, and we don't accept that the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is part of the film."

A lawyer for Mr Abu Aita said that he was tricked into appearing in the film and was no longer involved with the Martyrs Brigades, it was reported. He added that Mr Abu Aitas planned to file a law suit against the 37-year-old British comedian.

Mr Baron Cohen has reportedly tightened his security following the publication of the statement.
I suppose that this really should be in CA, but play nicely everybody and this won't get culled!


Pah, forgot the linky:

It's about the idiocy of the Palestinians you Tit! Which part of that did you miss?
Yes I know it's about that! And I find Bruno/Borat very funny too, but the fun police don't.... (Oh, I don't mean the Arrse Mods (All hail the admin!))



1. Do not attack people because of their race, ethnicity, religion, gender or sexuality.

4. The Mods reserve the right to remove anything else they don't like as well.

New Arrse rules



But someone, somewhere will break the rules somehow.....
