Al Sadr complains “I will not be ignored, Dan”

Posted in Iraq, political satire at 1:01 pm by thewashingtonbeltsider

Comparing himself to the wronged adulteress played by Glen Close in the film “Fatal Attraction,” Shi’ite cleric Muqtada al Sadr has been telling associates “I will not be ignored. Like that film…her boyfriend turns his back, when it gets messy, because she is pregnant. In the movie. She says ‘I will not be ignored, Dan!'”

Though it is known that many Western films are popular in Iraq, it was not clear that the Muslim leader was a fan of films, in particular those of director Adrian Lyne, but he has also referred favorably in his writings to his ally in the Iraqi congress, Prime Minister al Maliki, as “very much like a young Micky Rourke,” referencing the actor from several well-regarded, early 1970’s Lyne films.

“And then Dan does not Alex to the opera. That is not me. I will run my fighters through the streets. They would be so lucky to just have a cooked rabbit or a disfigured car. I will make them really wish they had shown me respect.”
