“Terrorist leader” Ayman Abu Aita is furious over his
portrayal in Sacha Baron Cohen’s new film Bruno.
The Palestinian, who reportedly was involved with the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigade,
is claiming that the film mislabels him and that Cohen conducted the interview
under false pretenses.
In fact, Aita holds on to his claim that he is no longer involved with the
organization and hasn’t been for years.
In what we've been told is a publicity seeking stunt,
Sacha Baron Cohen, has increased security for himself and his partner,
Australian actress Isla Fisher.
In a supposed letter to a Jerusalem-based journalist,
the al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigade supposedly states,
"We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man".
Aita, who is labeled in the movie as “terrorist group leader”, claims he was shocked when he learned that the film is about a homosexual character and contains scenes of graphic homosexual sex and full frontal male nudity.
Cohen also stated last week on Letterman that Aita may have been carrying a
weapon during the interview,
a claim that Ayman Abu Aita disagrees with.
He states that Cohen told him the film was going to help the Palestinian cause.
Back in the REAL world,
Ayman Abu Aita is threatening legal action.
Aita's lawyer, Hatem Abu Ahmad,
says Aita's life is at risk for being associated with the homosexual character.
