Yusuf Does Tinsel Town

Coming soon to a multiplex near you--Muslim bro' Yusuf al-Qaradawi's Mohammed P.B.U.H. This American Thinker has the details--in glorious jihad technicolor:
...Basically, Qaradawi is all jihad, all the time. In your world, it may be time to pay the bills, kick back with a beer, or plant your tomatoes. In Qaradawi's world, it's time to furiously expand his infidel-blasting empire of media weaponry. One minute, you may find him explaining on his Al-Jazeera television series that Hitler carried out "divine punishment" for the Jews, and "Allah willing, the next time will be at the hand of the believers." The next, he may be uploading his latest fatwa onto his Islam Online website, like the famous one he unleashed against "Pokémon," a kids' television show he's convinced features animated characters whispering, "Become a Jew." Or perhaps he's writing a learned chapter for his 41st book, addressing the finer points of wife-beating, child marriage, and female genital mutilation.
And now Qaradawi's gone Hollywood! Yes, the man the ADL dubbed "The Theologian of Terror," the choleric cleric who's banned from entering the U.S. and England, has rocketed to the top of Hollywood's A-list. Barrie Osborne, producer of the blockbuster trilogies The Matrix and The Lord of the Rings, has hired Qaradawi to guide all aspects of his new $200-million movie on the Prophet Mohammed, which Osborne optimistically describes as "an international epic production aimed at bridging cultures." Some moviegoers might find Qaradawi's approach to "bridging cultures" a tad peculiar: "The only thing I hope for is that as my life approaches its end, Allah will give me an opportunity to go to the land of jihad and resistance, even if in a wheelchair. I will shoot Allah's enemies, the Jews, and they will throw a bomb at me, and thus, I will seal my life in martyrdom." All Hollywood's asking: Which part will Keanu Reeves play?...
Maybe he can play a rude Jew of Arabia who, when Mo presents himself as the "seal of the prophets" says, "If you're a seal, let's see you clap your flippers together and roll a ball on your nose"--and whose head gets sliced off as a result.
