Putting the fun into fundamentalist

Apparently, Iran and South Korea are teaming up to produce animated films about Islam and Muhammed.

Iran’s Documentary and Experimental Film Center (DEFC) has recently signed a contract with South Korean company Zagunhyung to jointly produce educational animated films on Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (S), MNA reported.

And how are they going to do this without actually portraying he who must be opaque?

The contract was signed by DEFC representative and Zagunhyung director Lee Jae-cheol at the film market of the 11th Pusan International Film Festival (PIFF) in October.

According to the contract, the joint productions will be broadcast on South Korean state TV.

Stand by for the islamification of Korea - with the state complicit in the takeover bid!

The productions will familiarize South Korean children and young adults with Islam and the Prophet Muhammad (S), Lee said after he signed the contract.

So it's aimed at children and young adults. Familiarise or propagandise?

As I said, it should be interesting to see how they are going to put out cartoons about Muhammed without actually showing him. If they do, I wonder if this is going to cause as big a furore as the Danish cartoons?

I hope Mr Lee has found himself a good hiding place.
