Terrorist’s Buddies Cry Gewald
People who regularly read this blog probably remember that Ayman Abu Aita from the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades was outraged that Sasha Baron Cohen had dared to depict him — an honest and hard-working member of a terrorist organization with more than a hundred successful murders on their record — in a homosexual setting.
If you’re not one of those people, feel free to refresh your memory here.
Now it turns out that not only Ayman Abu Aita is upset about the camp context in which he’s placed by Cohen. According to a report in Haaretz, the al-Aqsa Martyrs’ Brigades, the armed wing of the ruling Fatah party, has denounced Cohen’s misleading and dirty use of Abu Aita. They now plan a “suitable” response.
Considering the above-mentioned track-record of this organization, one can see why Cohen has tightened up security routines as of late.
