Muhammad Daoud Really Wanted to Direct

Across the blogosphere, much has been made of the criticism Muhammad Daoud has leveled against Steven Spielberg and his new film Munich that Spielberg called his "prayer for peace". From Damascus, Daoud said, "If he really wanted to make it a prayer for peace he should have listened to both sides of the story and reflected reality, rather than serving the Zionist side alone." I didn't see Daoud considering both sides of the story in 1972 as I watched the attack unfold.

Muhammad Daoud, the Black September terror mastermind of the massacre of 11 Israeli athletes at the 1972 Munich Olympic Games, showing himself for the shameless, bloodthirsty pig that he is, said, "We did not target Israeli civilians ... Some of them (the athletes) had taken part in wars and killed many Palestinians. Whether a pianist or an athlete, any Israeli is a soldier."

Of course, he neglects to add that the athletes, when fighting, were soldiers wearing uniforms and acting according to the rules set down in the Geneva Conventions, but hey, technicalities - Palestinians and Muslims don't need no stinking rules to fight and kill; it's what they do. They can wear any clothing they want (the co-ordinated sweatsuits are sooooooo 1980s!), shoot anyone (men, women, children, elderly, babies), then run away to hide among the other "civilians".

"Spielberg showed the movie to widows of the Israeli victims, but he neglected the families of Palestinian victims," Daoud whined.

But, none of this was of any real importance to Muhammad Daoud. Yes, he was probably very angry as a practicing terrorist, and, yes, he probably was pretty well ticked off that Spielberg didn't have a special sneak preview for terrorists and their families. Nope, that's not what really got Daoud pissed off, though. So what did it for Daoud - what got his dander up? He was outraged "at not being consulted for the thriller."

I thought that the uniform for palestinians were white sheets with matching hoods. Was I wrong? Don't all palestinians serve in the military? Hmmmm.

I'm sure there are a number of Israelis who are willing to "consult" with Daoud.
