Rubbish Documentary without any truth... Full of Lies...
14 September 2010 | by ilovejhelumSee all my reviews

This video is the Prime example how west is manipulating the brains of people who don't know much about Islam and People of Egypt.

Its a propaganda video in a sweet way to spread hate and negativity of Islam and Muslims, Really shame on Author and i pity how less he knows. Sham on you.

There are so much information in the documentary which is false and has no true Islamic truth, Author is just assuming what he thinks is right but he never care enough to know what exactly is the truth.

I seriously don't see any logic behind this video other than to give Muslim and Islam bad name, director/author thinks that people in middle east are imagining the truth and their beliefs are self made. Which i find really deceptive and prerogative.
