That's The Spirt!

A movie I have seen once and would like to see again was called To Be or Not To Be starring Mel Brooks who portrayed an actor just prior to WWII in a stage performance that made fun of Hitler.

Hitler: All I want is peace
Starts Singing
A little "peace" of Poland
A little "peace" of France
A little "peace" of Denmark
And I will sing and dance.
(or words to that effect - - - I am going on memory here.)

His version of the movie takes place in England but apparently there was an older version of the movie that took place in Poland. Anyway the English authorities try to shut him down because he is antagonizing Hitler and they don't want to do that. (Does this ring a bell anyone?)

Somebody in London has the right idea. Jihad the Musical.

It need not be said that the Muslims are up in arms about it. Too bad. If Christians have to put up with being mocked in the media Muslims need to learn to do the same.

Here is a clip from Jihad the Musical.




This is a musical I wouldn't mind seeing. I hope it comes to America though I don't think too many people in Hollywood would have the courage to make such a movie.

Thanks all.

gunz you're almost right. That which mocks them and tells the truth about them is also worth seeing.
