What a small minority of British Muslims? Can we keep the gross generalisations off the forum, please? Thanks.

Morris is a genius. I loved BRASS EYE. I reckon this'll be great.

Get off your high horse, it's not a gross generalisation it is the sort of thing which will cause complaints and you know it is.

Of course there will be complaints, from white Christian Daily Mail readers, as usual.

I think what Paul was talking about was the way you worded your post...

Personally, I think the vast majority of Muslims in the UK will see this as the dark satire it is and 'get' the joke. I'd imagine all the Asian actors in this film are Muslims too and they certainly won't be kicking off about any of this.

From the Guardian :-

"Morris has been at work for several years on a project that marks something of a departure for him in formal terms (it's a feature film) if not in his proclivity for provocative subject matter: Four Lions is a comedy about suicide bombers. Which isn't to say he is taking jihad lightly: he has embarked on serious research, talking to everyone from police and security experts to imams and Muslim community workers."

Yes i did.

Let's get this into perspective, if someone in Scandinavia can cause so much uproar with a drawing i reckon this could too.

I'm not anti-muslim i'm anti-muslim extremists. I'm not some div who thinks all muslims are the same you know.

Another thing, if it was me who posted the clip i bet it would have been looked at in a different light.

If you had posted the clip I'd have thought "Wow! I never knew Aarron was into Chris Morris' brand of humour! Good lad!"

I asked for you not to make generalisations, as your post read like a sweeping statement. "Them" certainly doesn't sound specific to extremists, does it? I've made my point. I will just deleted anything that I consider to be offensive going forward.

So why did you just admit to using the term 'them' to mean Muslims when what you really meant was extremists?

Delete what you want, feels good to flex your modding powers does it.

It's ok for you to express views on Marc's forum isn't it, yes i read it because there was a link put to it on pre-cert.

I do know what you mean but feel the need to point it out for casual readers of the forum who might not know you well enough to understand what you really meant. I don't want people getting the wrong idea about any of our members.
