They take th­ese things se­ri­ously

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

More news from the You’re Play­ing Into His Hands Depart­ment. The mil­i­tant Pales­tinian or­gan­i­sa­tion ridiculed by Sacha Baron Co­hen in Brüno has threat­ened to do some­thing or other to the brave comic.

“We re­serve the right to re­spond in the way we find suit­able against this man,” a spokesman for the hu­mour­less guer­ril­las raved. “The movie was part of a con­spir­acy against the al-Aqsa Mar­tyrs Bri­gade. Ac­cord­ing to what we checked, there was no meet­ing about the real con­text of the film. This was a dirty use of our brother Ay­man.”

Since you ask, Ay­man Abu Aita was the fel­low who scowled when Brüno com­pared Osama Bin Laden to a “dirty wizard”.
