Sacha Baron Cohen appeared on "Late Show with David Letterman" where he discussed the difficulty of finding a terrorist to interview for his "Bruno" movie. After a long search, a terrorist was provided and that same terrorist is now pursuing legal action against Cohen.
"[Baron Cohen] said this was a film going to help the Palestinian cause," terrorist Ayman Abu Aita told WND. "When I heard (four days ago) what this film was about I really didn't believe it."
Aita is depicted as a terrorist group leader from the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, which has been responsible for scores of suicide bombings, shootings and deadly rocket attacks against Israeli civilian population centers. But Aita is claiming that he's no longer a terrorist and now believes in non-violent ways of promoting Palestinian rights.
HAHA, i can't believe this this guy kills innocents for no reason and now expects to sue SBC for what, humilation??
If SBC gets sued, then there is seriously no God!!

this is outrages, the way the Palestinina and Arabs are portraid as terrorists on daily basis just for defending their land while innocent kids are being killed all the time by the Israeli army for no reason.
Oh great, now we have the Isreali/Palestenian debate on here. Want to blame someone, blame Britian. They were the ones that drew up imaginary lines in the Middle East and Africa and forced different tribes/cultures/people together. If you look it up, Jews thrived under the Turkish Empire. Wasn't until the Brits took control that violence between the two religious groups erupted. I believe that Turkey has the highest % of Jews living in an Arab country and how often do you hear of violence between Jews and Muslims there?
Portrayed? f*ck off- I dont see how being a "former" terrorist no longer makes you a terrorist. It's like saying, "I used to be a murderer, but I'm not anymore. Im peaceful now." If it didnt work for Tookie it dhouldnt work for this shlub...

I'm not giving the guy who SBC interviewed any excuse to blow up civilians still it's unfair that this is the only way media have portrayed Arabs in most of their movies and people intend to believe that without any hesitation.
People need to read more and research more before believing whatever the movies says...
I screamonly serious? NO one in their right mind takes a MOCKumentary to heart...which is why this ex terrorist is taking it to heart. SBC becomes the stereotype to expose the stereotype- if you dont understand that blatantly obvious satirical concept then YOU are the one who needs to be informed and educated properly before you begin to comment on entertainment-let alone complicated religious conflicts.
