1- EXT. SMALL VILLAGE –DAYWide shot of small village that seems to be strange mixture of both current and ancient ways of life, but is somewhat common for this part of the world. It reads... “El-Kosh-Eh Southern Egypt – present day” We follow Constable Zembawy, fifties, as he walks down this quiet village street. we hear the distant sound of many angry male voices. We cannot tell what they are saying, nor does it seem close enough to be any consequences at the moment. Constable Zembawy enters a small pharmacy. 2-INT. PHARMACY- DAY Inside the pharmacy Doctor Matthew, fifties, comes from around the counter to greet constable Zembawy with a big smile and a lot of enthusiasm. DR. MATTHEW Ahhhh, Constable Zembawy, welcome. How are you my friend? CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY I am very good Dr., very good DR. MATTHEW That is good, I am glad to hear it He reaches back to the counter and grabs a small vile. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) Here, this is the medicine for your wife. It should make her feel better. He takes the medicine. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY How much do I owe you doctor? DR. MATTHEW Oh No! I already took care of it. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY Come now Doctor. You don’t charge for my wife. You don’t charge for me. You do too much for us.
DR. MATTHEW It is alright. We must look out for each another, Yes? Oh, before I forget…. He calls to someone off screen. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) Youstina, please bring what you have for Constable Zembawy. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY What is this? DR. MATTHEW You will see. YOUSTINA, the doctor’s seventeen year old daughter, enters from the back carrying a large covered pot. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) Youstina, give the food to Constable Zembawy. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY Wow! Even food, I cannot accept this doctor. DR. MATTHEW You must take it- your wife needs nutrition while taking her medicine and you have four wives and eleven kids. The doctor looks to the pot that Youstina holds and back to Constable Zembawy. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) Take it please... for your wife... Youstina cooked it special for her. Take it. Constable Zembawy looks to the doctor. Both men know what is really going on, but neither of them speak of it. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY For my wife, okay. He takes the pot from Youstina. DR. MATTHEW And stop getting married and having more kids!
CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY For your knowledge Doctor, our prophet Mohammed had 61 wives, eleven at the same time... plus the girlfriends. DR. MATTHEW I know, I heard about it. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY Thank you for the medicine and the food. And please thank your wife for examining my wife for free. DR. MATTHEW You are welcome. Go now and take care of her. Constable Zembawy blesses them and as he turns to walk out talks to himself. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY (V.O.) The infidel Matthew does not like the Muslim breeding. If my sick wife died today, I will sell the medicine, eat the food and marry a young girl tomorrow. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY I will marry her tomorrow! He passes Mr. Rostom coming into the pharmacy. Mr. Rostom, a poor man in his early forties is dressed in nothing but rags. MR. ROSTOM (overhearing) Oh, Congratulations Constable Zembawy. Do not forget to invite me? CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY Shut up Rostom. MR. ROSTOM (To Dr Matthew) This is the prescription for the medication my son needs. The doctor looks at the paper then goes behind his counter and grabs a small bottle.
DR. MATTHEW Here is your son’s prescription. God bless him. That will be ten pounds. Mr. Rostom gets frustrated. MR. ROSTOM Ten pounds... ten pounds... Oh no! I don’t have ten pounds. DR. MATTHEW How much do you have Mr. Rostom? Mr. Rostom pulls out his money and counts. MR. ROSTOM I only have seven pounds doctor. I swear on the Quraan YOUSTINA I will pay the difference Daddy. DR. MATTHEW Okay. Do not worry Rostom. Youstina will take care of the difference. He gives the doctor the money and leaves. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) (To Youstina) You may go back upstairs to your mom’s clinic. EXT. VILLAGE STREETS DAY A crowd of angry MEN are coming down the street waving sticks, axes, knives and shouting out loud. Many have their faces covered with scarves. The leader, SHEIKH METWALI, age 50, an angry Muslim, is the loudest. SHEIKH METWALI (loudly) Allah and Akbar! Allah and Akbar! Muslims, let us attack! Let us attack! Let us go for Jihad! Kill the non Muslims and rid our country of them. Whomever wants to enter paradise, let him kill the infidels.
The crowd is really worked up now. They start running through the streets attacking anybody and destroying everything they see. A man runs up in front of the Pharmacy and slams the end of a hatchet right into the stomach of another man causing him to double over. A man from the mob throws a large rock that crashes into the plate glass window of a small shop. Another man throws a rock that hits a woman square in the face, knocking her to the ground. A MAN runs into the middle of the street pleading with the mob. CHRISTIAN VILLAGER 1 Please... Please... Do not do this. There is no mercy. Six men from the mob converge on him from all directions and beat him to the ground with large thick sticks. Once down, a few others begin stabbing him brutally with knives. They grab the CROSS from his neck, throw it on the ground and step on it. 4-INT. PHARMACY –DAY Dr. Matthew hears the commotion outside and rushes to look out the door. He is shocked at what he sees. He exits out the front door and calls to his daughter and wife in the clinic upstairs. DR. MATTHEW Marina...Youstina... Marina... YOUSTINA (from balcony) Yes Daddy... yes... What’s going on? DR. MATTHEW There’s an angry mob in the street. Tell your mother to release all the patients and close the clinic. We must go home now! YOUSTINA Okay Daddy. Dr. Matthew closes the pharmacy very fast... He rushes his daughters and wife by calling them again. DR. MATTHEW (loudly) Youstina... Youstina, we must go, we must leave now.
YOUSTINA Daddy we canâ€™t. After the patients left some men locked the door from the outside. They said they will blow up the place. DR. MATTHEW Okay, I will get a ladder for you. Alone, he finds a ladder and goes up to the balcony. Nearby, Mr. Rostom looks on without trying to help. The mob has reached the pharmacy, throwing bricks through the window and trying to break down the door. We see Constable Zembawy in the street. He still holds the pot of food. He kicks an old tree trunk that is by the side of the road. CONSTABLE ZEMBAWY (loudly) Men... Men... Use this tree trunk to break down the door of this forsaken Christian. A handful of the men run over, pick up the tree trunk and easily break down the pharmacy door. They rush inside, Mr. Rostom with them. A number of Policemen, Officers and Generals are now standing not too far from the pharmacy. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHOF (to Officers) Freeze. Do not take any action until everything is over. Wait for my further instructions. 5-INT. PHARMACY-DAY The men are pushing racks of items over. Everything scatters in all directions. They break everything they can with their axes and other weapons, shouting as they do so. Some of them, including Mr. Rostom, put money and other things in their pockets. MOB 2 Yes and kill the infidels! 6-EXT- PHARMACY-DAY The mob outside is out of control.
SHIKH METWALY Set the place on fire. We will burn out these forsaken Christians. All of men cheer at this idea as others start throwing burning torches into the pharmacy through the broken window. Within seconds the entire place begins to go up in a blazing fire. Several Policemen finally come forward to break up what is happening and push the mob back. NEARBY CAPTAIN HANY GAMAL (To Christian Men) I saw you start this fire. You killed two people! You’re coming with me. CHRISTIAN MAN I’m innocent. I’ve done nothing. The victims are my father and my brother. CHRISTIAN MAN’S WIFE It is true. Why would he kill his father and his brother? Captain Gamal grabs her SON, only 4 years old, in a threatening way. CAPTAIN HANY GAMAL (To Christian lady) This man started the fire and killed two people did he not? THE WIFE Yes... Yes my husband killed his brother and his father. Please let my son go. Gamal releases the boy and takes the man into custody. CAPTAIN HANY GAMAL I thought so. Another officer, Captain Islam El Badry grabs HANAFI, a Muslim who threw a burning torch into the pharmacy. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHLOF (to officers) Captain El Badry... Not him. Only arrest the Christians. Only Christians... as many as you can.
CAPTAIN ISLAM EL BADRY As you order General Makhlof. He releases Hanafi. Dr. Matthew’s family go down the ladder. First Youstina, after that his wife Marina and the last is Dr. Matthew. From down below, we see Mr. Rostom looking upward trying to see up the dress of Doctor Matthew ‘s wife and not at all ashamed of doing it. Marina push him hard and he falls down on the ground, a lot of money falling out of his pocket. Finally Dr. Matthew comes down the ladder and within mere seconds of him making it to the bottom the entire building goes up in flames. He sobs as he puts his arms around his wife and his daughter. DR. MATTHEW Thank God... Thank God we are not hurt or killed like the other Christians. Dr. Matthew looks up and locks eyes with Constable Zembawy, who is not far away, still holding the pot of food. They look at each other for a moment and then Constable Zembawy turns and walks away, showing no shame at all. Rostom gets up to clean his clothes. General Khalil Makhlof appears and is angry at what he sees. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHLOF (loudly) Who the hell started this? A man steps forward. MAN 1 We heard Sheikh Metwali calling for Jihad in the Mosque. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHLOF And where is Sheikh Metwali? He looks all around and then calls out louder GENERAL KHALIL MAKHLOF (CONT’D) Where is Sheikh Metwali? You will step forward now? The crowd begins to part and through them comes Sheikh Metwali. SHEIKH METWALI I am Sheikh Metwali.
The General steps right into the face of Sheikh Metwali. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHLOF Explain to me what is going on here? SHEIKH METWALI I believe that the infidel Christians would attack us. So we must attack them first. You’re Muslim and you know that war is the art of deception. We must do like Hitler did with Jew holocaust. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHOF What? SHEIKH METWALI Holocaust... Holocaust for the Christians. Without warning the General strikes him across the face with the back of his hand. GENERAL KHALIL MAKHOF You are a stupid idiot. Is this the time for that? Get out of my face; We are who decide when and how. While Sheikh Metwali is angry at this he does not have the courage to stand up, to the general. He turns and walks away. GENERAL KHALIL Everybody go home. Go home now or I will take all of you to jail! The mob begins to disperse rather quickly. INTERCUT still pictures of the real victims. Dr. Matthew approaches the General. DR. MATTHEW Aren’t you going to arrest any of these people? FROM THE MOB. They killed twenty-four Christians and injured others! This is a Massacre General Khalil!
GENERAL KHALIL There is no point. You are living in an Islamic country. Muslims aren’t punished for killing nonMuslims. This is Quraan law. DR. MATTHEW Then why do you arrest these Christians if they have done nothing wrong? They are the victims. GENERAL KHALIL This is a diplomatic issue. Ask Captain El Badry and Captain Gamal. They are in charge now. CAPTAIN EL BADRY I will teach the Christians a lesson. I will make them confess to everything that happened here. I will prove it in the court. The doctor looks at him understanding the message. DR. MATTHEW (sarcastically) Now I understand why Egypt is living in the past. The Islamic terrorists kill the Christians under the Islamic law and the Egyptian government gives them permission. The village street is now calm as the people move away. 7 INT. DR. MATTHEW’S HOUSE - NIGHT In a small unassuming house- Marina and Youstina Matthew sit in the main room looking at the grandfather clock. They are waiting for something very important. YOUSTINA After three years, today is the sentence for the twenty-four Christians that were killed in the city. The door bell rings, Marina rushes to the door. YOUSTINA (CONT’D) Daddy... Daddy has the verdict.
She opens the door and we see Dr. Matthew walking into the house very sad and tired. YOUSTINA (CONT’D) What happened in court? DR. MATTHEW Again, the Islamic Egyptian police arrested 1400 Christians... tortured them and made them confess to the killings. YOUSTINA Why do they do this? DR. MATTHEW To hide the Muslim’s crime. The Egyptian police committed fraud against the Christians to protect the Muslim mob. YOUSTINA That isn’t fair. This is a scandal. I’m happy the U.S and the Allies are now killing the Muslims in Iraq. DR. MATTHEW (interrupted) NO, no don’t say that. The Bible tells us to love all people... even your enemies... and to pray for them. Muslims are not our enemies at all. They are our brothers in our country of Egypt. Youstina starts to walk but her father stop her after her mother looks at him. YOUSTINA How can I love them after what they’ve done to us. No Daddy. God bless America and the Allies. DR. MATTHEW The Islamic media reports the American soldiers are killing Muslims. The Americans and the Allies don’t attack the Iraqi people. It is the Muslim terrorists who are killing them. YOUSTINA Daddy...
DR. MATTHEW The Americans and the Allies made a mistake when they attacked Iraq. YOUSTINA How? DR. MATTHEW I’m a pharmacist so I put it in a simple formula. YOUSTINA Formula? DR. MATTHEW Yes, if they understand this formula they could save thousands of lives and billions of dollars of tax payer’s money. INTERCUT coffins draped with the U.S flag coming out of an airplane. DR. MATTHEW (CONT’D) Listen to this formula. Man plus “X” equals Islamic terrorist. Islamic terrorist minus “X” equals Man. He writes this formula on the blackboard. YOUSTINA What is “X”? DR. MATTHEW You need to discover it by yourself. I will help you. YOUSTINA I met Hanafi’s wife, an American girl, when mom examined her. We spoke about Osama Ben Laden. She said “So what?” “Hitler killed millions of people and he was a Christian.” DR. MATTHEW I agree. Hitler caused the Holocaust and killed more than six million Jews, but he never said the Bible ordered me to do that.
YOUSTINA You are right. But why did Hanafi marry an American woman? DR. MATTHEW I’m hungry. I’ll explain to you while I eat. INT. DR. MATTHEW DINING ROOM - NIGHT Dr. Matthew, Marina and Youstina are eating. DR. MATTHEW Mr. Hanafi is the son of Sheikh Metwali. He went to the U.S on a visitor visa. 8-EXT. LAX ARRIVAL GATE - DAY A sign reads “Arriving Passengers.” A sliding door opens and Hanafi, age late 20’s, exits. He is wearing an old fashioned suit without a tie, old shoes and carrying a suitcase in each hand. He is surprised at everything he sees. A GIRL, age twenty, stands in a corner feeding her DOG from a box of dog food. Suddenly, a taxi stops and the Girl and dog jump in the taxi and drive away fast. She forgot the dog food. Hanafi walks to the box, looks around and takes a piece from the box and starts to eat. A MAN passes Hanafi and notices the food he is eating. THE MAN Sir, this is dog food. HANAFI (with a big smile) Yes... Yes good, very good. Thank you Yes... Yes... Yes, very much. THE MAN Sir... You are eating dog food. HANAFI No... No... THE MAN Yes... Yes sir, this is dog food.
HANAFI (Offering to share) Piece? You piece? I piece. You piece? The Man is confused and leaves as Hanafi tries to give him the dog food. Hanafi continues eating. The taxi returns. The Girl inside, VICKY, looks from the window to see Hanafi eating the dog food. VICKY Sir... This is my dog food. HANAFI (talking to himself) Everybody is looking at me and need food. (to Vicky) You piece? Okay thank you. VICKY This is dog food... this is dog food. HANAFI Huh! Take everything, finish it already. VICKY Sir... Sir... This is “Ruff, Ruff, Ruff”! Finally Hanafi understands what kind of food he is eating. HANAFI NO... Yes... Okay, Okay. (to himself) If this is what the dogs eat then what American’s eat? Hamburger? God damn it. Vicky opens the taxi door. VICKY You need a ride? Hanafi smiles broadly. He throws one bag on the front seat and gets in. 9- INT INSIDE CAR - DAY Hanafi is sitting next to Vicky and her dog, with one bag on his leg.
VICKY Iâ€™m Vicky Henderson and you? HANAFI Egypt... Egyptian... Hanafi Metwali unlimited. VICKY Where are you going? HANAFI Going mosque... mosque... Sheikh Bayomy... Bayomy unlimited. VICKY (to the driver) Can you take him where he wants to go please. THE DRIVER Okay... I will. I know around here fifteen mosques. VICKY Thank you. HANAFI Thank you very much. EXT. STREET IN FRONT OF MOSQUE - DAY In front of the Mosque, SHEIKH BAYOMY, age 50, is standing in front of a line of African Americans. The cab stops. The Driver opens the door for Hanafi, after Hanafi ties several times. Vicky hands him her CARD. VICKY If you need anything please call me. Hanafi exits with his scuttle but forgets his other luggage. The cab leaves. Hanafi tries to call after it but nobody hears. FIRST MAN La elah ela Allah. Mo Rasool Allah. Sheikh Bayomy hands him CASH. SHEIK BAYOMY Here is 600 dollars.
SECOND PERSON La elah ela Allah. MO Rasool Allah. SHEIKH BAYOMY Here is 600 dollars. THIRD MAN La elah ela Allah. MO Rasool Allah. SHEIKH BYOMY Here is 600 dollars. After that Sheikh Bayomy puts the cash in his pocket. SHEIKH BAYOMY Finished... finished... no more money. MAN FROM THE LINE What do you mean finished...? No more money? SHEIKH BAYOMY Yes, no money. The Arabian kingdom did not send enough money this month. I will tell the Arabian King. SAME MAN No money. No... no... no... No, Mo rasol wrah. Finally Sheikh Bayomy discivers Hanafi. SHEIKH BAYOMY Who are you? HANAFI I am Hanafi, Sheikh Metwaliâ€™s son. I just arrived from Egypt. SHEIKH BAYOMY Oh welcome! Okay come with me. I will show you where you will sleep and tomorrow I will show you where you will work. They leave together. EXT. GAS STATION - DAY Sheikh Bayomy and Hanafi are talking with the owner.
SHEIKH BAYOMY (to Hanafi) You can work here temporarily until you get a residency. HANAFI How? SHEIKH BAYOMY A lot of women come here. Pick one and try to marry her to become a resident. EXT. GAS STATION - DAY Hanafi tries to talk with a LADY 1, who ignores him. He tries again with LADY 2, using some flowers. She also ignores him. LADY 3 slaps him with her PURSE. He sits down on the ground. He remembers something, puts his hand in his pocket and finds the card. INT. COFFEE SHOP - DAY Hanafi and Vicky drink coffee and talk. INT. RESTAURANT - DAY Hanafi and Vicky talk while eating. HANAFI I love you. VICKY Oh thank you Hanafi. HANAFI Do you like to visit Egypt? VICKY (exited) Oh sure, I would love to. HANAFI But I cannot. VICKY Why?
HANAFI Because I don’t have a residency in the U.S., so I cannot come back anymore if I leave. VICKY Can you get a Visa if you get married? HANAFI This is what I want. Can you help me? INT. CITY HALL - DAY Hanafi and Vicky sign the marriage papers. EXT. IMMIGRATION OFFICE - DAY Hanafi and Vicky exit, very happy. INT. TRAVEL AGENCY - DAY A poster of Eqypt on the wall.
Hanafi and Vicky buy tickets.
INT. ARABIC SUPERMARKET - DAY Hanafi and Vicky shopping. EXT. LAX DEPARTURE - DAY A sing reads “Departure”. Hanafi tries to cover Vicky’s hair with the Muslim veil. HANAFI Now you are a Muslim women. Your new name is Amenah. VICKY Oh this is a fantastic name. She looks in her pocket MIRROR. VICKY (CONT’D) I’m pretty now Hanafi? HANAFI Of course, now you are Muslim Woman.
EXT. EGYPTIAN PYRAMIDS - DAY Hanafi and Vicky ridding a CAMEL. INT. MOSQUE - DAY Hanafi talks with his father, Sheikh Metwali, Hanafi is counting American CASH. HANAFI 30,000 dollars for converting and infidel to Islam and making her wear the Muslim veils? Where does this money come from? SHEIKH METWALI From the American aid. We get money to print books against the Christians and to spend on girls we kidnap to be Muslims. Now go, go to your wife, she’s calling you. EXT. LAX - DAY Vicky and Hanafi at the LAX “Arrival” sign. Hanafi is now wearing an expensive suit. EXT. BEACH - DAY Hanafi and Vicky have a picnic. EXT.

Inside, Hanafi is with another Muslim women. They are kissing and ready to make love.
VICKY It’s Vicky, your wife. What is going on? HANAFI My wife is with me stupid? VICKY What? HANAFI I don’t want you anymore. I have my real Muslim wife now. VICKY How? Why? I gave you everything. I gave you my heart, my money, my love and citizenship. HANAFI That is what I wanted, you stupid fool. VICKY Stupid fool? Because I love you? Call me a stupid fool? She falls to the ground crying in front of the door. INT. DR. MATTHEW’S DINING ROOM - NIGHT Dr. Matthew, Marina and Youstina are eating. YOUSTINA Poor Vicky... She is not a lucky girl. I feel so badly for her. But I have a question Daddy. DR. MATTHEW Go ahead. YOUSTINA Are you against the American aid for Egypt? DR. MATTHEW Not at all. No Egyptian is against the aid to Egypt. But the problem is how the Government spends the money. Most of this money goes to Islamic issues... to print Dr. Mohammed Emarh books. (MORE)
21. DR. MATTHEW (CONT'D) These books turn the Muslims against the Christians. Also they pay this money to have terrorists kidnap Christian girls to convert them to Islamic ways.
YOUSTINA Why are the Muslims acting like this? DR. MATTHEW Now we have to go back to the formula... Egyptian man plus “X” = Islamic terrorist. YOUSTINA Oh again, please tell me what is the “X”? DR. MATTHEW To help you with the answer, let us go to the Islamic library and open the Islamic history books. You will discover what is the “X”. INT. ISLAMMIC LIBRARY - DAY Dr. Matthew and Youstina look for the Islamic history book. EXT. THE DESSERT - DAY A very desolate area of the Arabian desert. One large TENT and a few smaller ones. There are also CAMELS, goats, donkeys and sheep. An old lady in robes, OM ZALAT, age 90, is milking an uncooperative GOAT. Off in the distance a small dust cloud is rising in the sky. ASH-ABB, a man age 60, steps out of the small tent, sees the dust cloud and gets excited. ASH-ABB What is that I see? It is a dust storm filling the air! Oh my God! It’s the caravan. Oh the amazing power of the Gods. Master Abd Ellat is returning and bringing the riches of the land of the Euphrates. I hope that he has brought back the silk shirt I asked him for.
Om Zalat stands from where she had been milking the goat and is excited at this news. She drops all the MILK she collected on the ground. OM ZALAT I am sure that Master Abd-Ellat will not forget to bring a new cloak for me from the land of the Euphrates. ASH-ABB Master Abd Ellat is an honest and generous man. I am sure he will not forget his loyal subjects. OM ZALAT Oh I shall tell Master Abd El Mootlab the good news and obtain the reward for doing it. She calls toward the large tent. OM ZALAT (CONTâ€™D) Master! Master, the caravan is here! It is time for the reunion! Feeling a bit left out Ash-Abb speaks to himself. ASH-ABB How could I forget to give the good news to the Master? I was the first to see the caravan coming. (louder, toward the big tent) Master! Master Abd El Mootlab, our great elder. The son who you have been waiting for is finally here. ABD EL MOOTLAB, a man age 70, with a large white beard and a majestic presence, steps out of the larger tent. He is a bit upset. ABD-EL-MOOT-LEB What is this noise? You sound like howling dogs. Whatâ€™s this screaming about? Are we being attacked by wolves? Speak now that you have awakened me from sleep. ASH-ABB The caravan and master Abd-Ellat have finally arrived Master.
OM ZALAT (chimes in) From the land of the Euphrates Master. ABD-EL-MOOT-LEB (with great joy) Is it true? Is it true that they are near? My eyes are old but I can see the dust cloud and what a wondrous site it is indeed. Praise be to out Gods. Ash-Abb and Om-Zalat both praise the Gods. ASH-ABB AND OM-ZALAT Praise Allat and Al-Ozza. ASH-ABB And our highest God Akabar. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB, ASH-ABB AND OM-ZALAT Praise Akabar. Praise Akabar. Abd-El MootLab speaks to himself. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB I will take my son Abd-Ellat to celebrate. We will go together and get married. I will marry Hala and my son will shall marry Amina, her cousin. We shall be married on the same night. We shall seal the marriage contracts and council at the same time. EXT. LARGE TENT - NIGHT It is the celebration. Many PEOPLE are present eating and drinking. All are dressed in their best robes. The two best dressed men are Abd-El Moot-Leb and his son Abd-Ellat who are both seated at the head of a long table on the ground that is covered with food and drinks. Also seated with them is AbdEllatâ€™s older brother Abo-Taleb. A MAN close by addresses them. MAN A blessed wedding Master Abd-El Moot-Leb And Master Abd-Ellat ABO-TALEB Is that how you do it my father? Get married with your son? (MORE)
24. ABO-TALEB (CONT'D) (he laughs) I must admit that you my father do indeed put the young men to shame.
ABD-EL MOOT-LEB (laughs at this) I know that my son, you have said nothing new. They all laugh. MAN 2 The brides, the brides! OTHER SIDE Everyone celebrates. [Takh-Tra-waa] The camel with each man carrying one of the brides. Abd-El Moot-Leb facing his bride and Abd-Ellat facing his bride. Each carries their bride into their tent. EXT. DESERT - DAY Abd-Ellat and Abd-El Moot-Leb are riding HORSES. Slaves behind them lead camels by their reins. Some sheep and goats are herded behind them by other slaves. The two men on horses pause for a moment. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB Abd-Ellat my son. It is time to depart my favorite son. ABD-ELLAT Father, you know that I have been with my wife for more than a month now, but I must not let my business be delayed any further. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB A month has already past? Ohh! I know son and where will you be departing to next? ABD-ELLAT To the land of Syria this time. I ask of you to take care of my wife Amina. She is part of your household now and she is in need of your care father.
ABD-EL MOOT-LEB Indeed my son. Be assured she is in safe keeping. Go in the care of the Gods. Abd-Ellat nods to his father then turns his horses just a bit so he can wave to his wife who is standing near the opening of the tent. She is a very beautiful woman with red hair. Then Abd-Ellat rides away followed by his slaves, camels, goats and sheep. His wife turns sadly and enters the tent. Abd–El Moot-Leb sits alone on his house as he watches his son and caravan move off into the distance. He is sad to be saying good-bye and it is obvious by the tone of his voice. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB (CONT’D) May the Gods protect you my son. So that I may see you again and before my death. EXT. DESERT - DAY The tents and other things that make up the realm of Abd-El Moot-Leb Across the bottom of the screen it reads “3 months later.” Amina is slapping her face and some women put sand over their heads in despair. The men are calling out loud. MAN 1 We have received news of the death of Abd-Ellat, husband of Amina and the son of Master Abd-El Moot-Leb MAN II Poor Abd-Ellat. He only spent a month with his wife Amina. MAN III As you know my wife who is a midwife told me that the wife of the senior citizen Master Abd-El MootLeb is pregnant. MAN II Is the wife of Abd-Ellat, Amina, pregnant? MAN III No my wife, after checking both of them, said only the senior citizen’s wife, Hala, is pregnant.
Then Abd-El Moot-Leb steps out of his tent along with his other son Abo-Taleb. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB It is a sad day indeed when a father out lives his son. No father should ever be expected to do so. I will regret this day until the end of my life. And in the same day I’ve been told that my wife, Hala, is pregnant. ABO-TALEB Is my dead brother Abd-Ellat’s Wife also pregnant? ABD-EL MOOT-LEB No, Amina is not pregnant. I wish so, but the mid-wife said after she checked both, Hala is the only one pregnant. The other MEN all come to comfort him. 6 YEARS LATER EXT. FRONT OF ABD-EL MOOT-LEB’S TENT - DAY Abo-Taleb comes to his father’s tent carrying a young male CHILD, age two. ABO-TALEB Father Master of Quersh. Waking up from inside the tent Abd-El Moot-Leb responds. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB Yes, yes what have brought, AboTaleb Abo-Taleb holds out the child. ABU TALEB Look, look father. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB What is this Abo-Taleb? Have you had a child for two years and haven’t told me. What a sly one you are my son.
ABO-TALEB No Father. I swear by Akabar, the greatest God, this is not my child. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB Then to whom does this child belong? ABO-TALEB He is... he is... Well, she claims it... to be... ABD-EL MOOT-LEB (louder) Speak! Who claims what? ABU TALEB Amina, the wife of my dead brother Abd-Ellat has said... ABD-EL MOOT-LEB May she go to hell. She disappeared a year after the death of her husband. And the people have told me that she works in a whore house as a prostitute. OTHER SIDE A tent with a red FLAG above it. Amina tries to grab a MAN inside the tent, but he refuses. Another MAN gets inside the tent after he paid her MONEY and left his SHOES and CANE outside the tent. We hear a voice from inside the tent. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB May she go to hell! May she go to hell! AB0-TALEB She died last week, but before her death she claimed this boy to be the son of my dead brother. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB (getting angry) A son of Abd-Ellat? A son of two years old from a father who has been dead for six years. This is preposterous! This is a scandal! My son has been dead for six years. ABO-TALEB Calm down father.
ABD-EL MOOT-LEB How can I calm down? My son cannot possibly have a son of two years! We got married on this same day and he dies three months later. My son, Hamzah, is six years old now. What madness is this? ABO-TALEB Father, weâ€™re not stupid. I know and understand father, but we must conceal this disgrace. You must take him and raise him, for you are the Master of our tribe. Raise him as one of your slaves if you must. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB (after thinking) And what shall I call him? Who shall I attribute him to? ABO-TALEB His name is Mo and we can call him the father unknown. Abd-El Moot-Leb turns and takes a few deep breaths as he considers what his son has said. After a few moments he turns back to his son. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB I think you are right my son. It shall be as you say. Go now, for this has depressed me greatly. ABU TALEB Yes father. And when he turns sixteen years old I will take him to Khadija to work for her as a slave. She is rich and she needs a lot of slaves. ABD-EL MOOT-LEB It is not a bad idea. If you can take him to her now, it would be better. ABU TALEB No... No, she is. not a baby sitter.
INT. KHADIJAâ€™S BEDOUIN HOME - DAY In a lavishly furnished Bedouin home we meet KHADIJA, an attractive woman, age 40, who is very well dressed and richly adorned in JEWELRY. She is sitting in the main room and a MAID is at her feet giving her a pedicure. We hear aloud commotion outside. Several of her SLAVES, including BILAL, a strong Black Man age 20, are present. KHADIJA Slave... What is this loud noise I hear outside? BILAL It is a Caravan belonging to my lady Khadija returning from the land or Iraq. At its head is your servant, Mo the unknown father. KHADIJA Very well, bring him to me as soon as he arrives. BILAL Yes, my lady. The slave moves off and Khadija speaks to her maid. KHADIJA Today I will speak to Mo and make him marry me. Mo?
A MAID Mo, the unknown father?
KHADIJA The son of Abd-Ellat is an ophan rejected and despised by the people in the area. Once I marry him I will be able to change his life past and future. Abo-Taleb brought him to me when he was sixteen years old, almost four years ago. MAID But everyone attributes him to be a bastard and claims that his mother was a prostitute in a whore house. KHADIJA I said I will change and control him. Bilal! Bilal! The slave she spoke to earlier comes back to the room.
BILAL My Lady. KHADIJA What is it? BILAL Mo the bastard has arrived with the caravan. KHADIJA Send him in and then stay out. BILAL Yes, my Lady. The slave exits the room. INT. KHADIJA HOUSE - ANOTHER ROOM - DAY Mo is sitting down with a very plain girl on his side. He eats a DRUMSTICK like an animal. Khadija’s slave enters and kicks Mo with his foot. BILAL Mo! Mo the bastard, your lady summons you. MO My lady? My lady? He jumps up giving the drumstick to the girl next to him. MO (CONT’D) Don’t finish it. Mo exits as Bilal grabs him by the neck. Then he returns. MO (CONT’D) (to Girl with drumstick) I am watching you! I am coming back! Don’t finish it. Gluttonous. I know you are gluttonous. THE GIRL Okay you bastard the unknown father. What?
MO What did you say?
THE GIRL Okay the unknown father. Mo exits after Bilal grabs him again by the neck. MOHAMMED Take me, Bilal, to my Lady. INT. KHADIJA’S BEDROOM - DAY Mo enters and bows before Khadija. KHADIJA Come in Mo, sit. MO I am not worthy of such honor. Khadija points to the spot she has chosen. KHADIJA Sit here, I command you. MOHAMMED As you wish my Lady. He sits and reaches into his robe. As he is not wearing underwear, Khadija notices his naked privates and is embarrassed. KHADIJA You don’t wear underwear? Cover yourself! MO Sorry. (he adjusts himself) I have your money and the Caravan outside is full of all your goods. KHADIJA Forget about that for now. I wanted to meet you because I have another thought on my mind. You know that I have been a widow twice and I have daughters and a lot of money. My family is well known, but I am now forty years old and I need a husband. MO And is it my honor to know who is the lucky man.
KHADIJA You! You Mo. You will be my new husband. Mo is shocked. MO Me? I am honored. I could never dream of such things. KHADIJA Then it is said and done. Go bring Abo-Taleb and meet me at my cousin Woraqua Ibn El Nofal’s church. He is a Christian Priest. We will consummate the marriage agreement there on the basis of Christian teaching. It will be under the Christian doctrine of one wife. MO As you wish. We shall meet at Woraqua’s church. KHADIJA Mo, you must come with better clothes. And don’t forget your underwear. MO This is the best of what I have. KHADIJA Bilal! Slave! Give him some new clothes... and a shower! MO Shower? Thank you. Thank You. Mo exits, very excited at the prospect of marrying his Lady Khadija. INT. KHADIJA HOUSE ANOTHER ROOM - DAY Mo enters and takes the drumstick from the girl and starts eating. MO Are you Gluttonous? I am sure you are gluttonous.
EXT. WARAQUAA’S HOME (CHURCH)- DAY A tent with a CROSS above it. Inside of this Christian home is WARAQUA IBN NOFAL, an elder of eighty plus years. He has a full white beard and is a man who carries with him the presence of a religious man. Also present is Mo, Khadija, AboTaleb and some other MEN and WOMEN and SLAVES. Mo and Khadija stand side by side facing the others. Next to each is the eldest members of their family. Next to the groom is Abo-Taleb and next to the bride is Waraqua Ibn Nofal. ABO-TALEB I am honored to ask for the hand of Lady Khadija, daughter of Khowled in marriage for Mo. KHADIJA I accept. WARAQUA I announce the marriage of Khadija to Mo the unknown father. Note: during the scene once in a while Mo scratches his head and eats whatever he finds. Bilal stands behind him to control him ( need explanation from me to the director). KHADIJA (cuts them off) The son of Abd Allah... Allah... Abd Allah. WARAQUA I announce the marriage Of Khadija, daughter of Khawled to Mo. GUESTS (cheer) Praise be to Allah! Praise be to Allah! Kadija ask Bilal to carry (Mo) after Waraqua finished. INT. KHADIJA BEDROOM We see Mo sleeping but we don’t know for sure who is. Then Khadija comes in the room. On the wall pictures Jesus and Mary.
KHADIJA Mo, wake up! Why are you still sleeping? Mo wakes up. Khadija tries to uncover him, but she finds another cover and another, up to four covers. KHADIJA (CONTâ€™D) One month now since we got married, but we must not delay business any further. You will go with the caravan and Iâ€™ll take care of the business here in Mecca. Finally Mo raising his head from the opposite side. MO Okay, as you command my Lady KHADIJA Remember, you married me under Christina law. I have spies everywhere. Just as soon as I made you my husband, I can make you a slave again. Now go, let Bilal give you a shower. You smell! MO Shower again... Belal... again Shower again? She closes her nose with her hand as he scratches his head. 15 YEARS LATER EXT. THE DESERT - DAY Mo is alone in a wide open area. Suddenly, Mo hears and imagines he sees a Devil appear and he is terrified. He imagines the Devil holding him from the back of his neck and chocking him. He falls down. No one, except Mo, is seen. VOICE Read Mo! Read Mo! MO No... No... I cannot read now. VOICE Read I said!
MO No I cannot! We see Mo running home. EXT. DESERT DESERT - DAY Looking out across the desert as the sun sets over the western horizon. INT.
BEDROOM OF KHADIJA AND MO - SUNSET
Khadija is sitting on the edge of her bed as Mo enters the room frightened and shaking. MO Hide me Khadija! Hide me! Keep me safe. Keep me warm please. KHADIJA Whatâ€™s wrong Mo? He answer, still shuddering and very afraid of what he saw. MO I was touched by a monster! I have seen the Devil! I have seen the Devil, I was touched by a monster. KHADIJA What are you talking about? Have you gone mad? MO Oh no! He was choking me from behind. Who?
KHADIJA Who was behind you?
MO I told you, the Devil! It was the Devil. Yes, it was the Devil. I know him. Khadija gets up and moves across the room. KHADIJA (to herself) Perhaps the time has come so that I can have both the wealth and power I seek.
MO What? What do you speak of my wife? KHADIJA Nothing my husband. I am getting you some flour and water to drink so that the fear will depart from you. Then you can tell me if you can see your friend again. At a table she begins to mix some flour and water in a wooden bowl. She brings it to him. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Here, drink as much as you can. Mo drinks down the liquid like it was his last. Then he drops the bowl and steps back in fear. Again he sees and hears the Devil. MO There he is Khadija! There is the Devil! Khadija seems confident in how to deal with this. She sits on the edge of the chair and reveals her naked right thigh. KHADIJA (referring to her exposed leg) Come and sit down here. Mo sits on her exposed leg. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Now, do you still see him? MO Yes, Yes I do! And he is coming For me! Khadija uncovers her other thigh. KHADIJA Now sit here. Mo moves to sit on her other thigh. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Do you still see him? Mo stands. She thinks for a moment and then pushes her leg open.
KHADIJA (CONT’D) Come Mo. Put your head between my thighs. He kneels before her and Khadija grabs his head and pulls it deep between her thighs so that his face is right up to her. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Now can you still see this Devil? Mo holds his nose with his hand as if smelling something bad. MO Yes I do ! Now Khadija removes her veil, uncovering her face. KHADIJA And how about now? MO No, I can’t see him anymore! Khadija puts her veil back over her face as Mo pulls his head out from between her legs. They are both excited and relieved. MO (CONT’D) He is gone Khadija! The Devil is gone! How did you do that? KHADIJA Be joyous my husband, for he was not a Devil. He was an Angel. MO I do not understand? How do you know this? KHADIJA I know you were visited by an angel because he got ashamed and left when I exposed myself. If he was the Devil, he would have stayed and watched. She stands and takes Mo’s face in her hands. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Mo, you have been visited by an Angel. You are the profit of our nation. I swear by Allah.
Mo is quite taken back by all of this. After all it is a lot for one man to swallow. MO But... But how? How can this be? KHADIJA It matters not. You are now the Messenger of our nation. Let us go and see the priest Waraqua Ibn Nofal, for he is a reader of the new testament and the Torah and very wise in these matters. Take a shower and follow me. Do not be late. I am going right now. MO Shower again? Billal! EXT. WARAQUA’S HOUSE - NIGHT Khadija step up toward the front of Waraqua’s house. KHADIJA This is our chance Waraqua. This is our one chance. WARAQUA What do you have in your mind? KHADIJA Mo is coming now. I made him believe he has seen an Angel. We can use this Waraqua. This is a chance to create a state and a Messenger. They both look at each other for a few minutes as Waraqua contemplates what he has just been told. Khadija breaks the silence. KHADIJA (CONT’D) Time is running out Waraqua. We only have this one chance. As Waraqua considers this, Mo walks in. WARAQUA (To mo) Ahhh Mo! Bearer of the word of Allah. I have seen a sign from heaven. (MORE)
39. WARAQUA (CONT'D) And it has told me that you are the prophet of our nation. It is the revelation of Abraham.
Waraqua exchanges glances with Khadija, but Mo does not see this. MO (surprised) Then it is true! I am a Messenger! I am a Messenger of Allah. WARAQUA Do not forget the God of the Arabs. His name is Akabar. Say Allah and Akbar, at least for the time being. Mo drops to his knees. MO Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. KHADIJA And I am the first Muslim Lady. MO And Waraqua is the first Muslim man. WARAQUA (cutting him off) Ah no... no... Forget about me. I am born Christian. I live as a Christian and will die a Christian. I will help you only. A MAN walking with a DONKEY. MO And this is the first Muslim animal. Mo tries to talk with the donkey, and he listens. MO (CONT’D) What is your name? His Name is Yafor. Do you like the women Yafor? He said “no.” Yafar does not like the women. Mo acts like someone who lost his mind. He starts to move away from them.
KHADIJA Please my cousin help us. WARAQUA Of course Khadija. I will make a book for him. It will be called the Quraan. It will be a mix between some versions from the Torah and some versions from the new testament. (12 YEARS LATER) EXT. DESERT - DAY A man sitting alone in front of his tent and GOATS. another Man approaching.
Closer: The Man sitting in front of the tent beside the goat is Mo. He is older now and at the moment he seems very sad. The Man that approaches him is Abu Bakr. ABU BAKR Messenger of Allah, some Muslims have left the Islamic way. MO And is there a reason for that Abu Bakr? ABU BAKR We used to give them money to stay as Muslims. MO What has happened then? What has changed their minds? If they want more money, give them more. ABU BAKR From where shall we get the money? Ever since your wife Khadija past away, we no longer have the money to give to the people. MO What shall we do then? ABU BAKR I donâ€™t know Messenger of Allah.
A few local JEWS approach hoping to speak to Mo. Assad is the first one of them to speak. ASAAD Shalom Mo. Abu Bakr is a bit angry by the greeting. ABU BAKR Say peace be upon you Messenger of Allah. ASSAD Peace be upon you Mo. ABU BAKR Say Messenger of Allah. ASSAD I shall not attempt to say it, Bakr. Bakr reaches for a long knife which is sheathed in his Robe. Mo holds out his hand. And Assad holds out one of his people hands try to hit Bakr with the sword MO Stop Bakr! ABU BAKR Are they not the Jews who changed the Torah? They bastardized it. MO No Bakr, do not speak with the words of the ignorant. What the Quraan says is some Jews misinterpreted the Torah and live according to this. Remember, the word of Allah cannot be destroyed or changed. ABU BAKR How is that? I memorized the verse. It says Jews and Christians changed the Torah and the New Testament. MO Okay Bakr, you are an idiot. Shut up. Assad, how can I help you? ASSAD We have a man and a woman who have committed adultery. (MORE)
42. ASSAD (CONT'D) The Torah commands that we stone her. But we would like your advice on the matter.
MO (to Bakr) Bring me the Torah. Assad has the book with him and hold it out. ASSAD Here it is Mo. Mo takes the book and hold it up after he opens it. MO (to the book) I believe in you and what was revealed in you. (to Assad) Therefore, go ahead and stone her, for I have not seen a book that is more favorable to God than this. ABU BAKR Should I understand that the Jews did not change the Torah? MO We Muslims have revealed the Message and we have preserved it. BAKR But the message is the Quraan, right? MO Bakr, you are still stupid! The New Testament and the Torah are the messages from God. The Quraan says to me, if I doubt what I have in the Quraan to ask the Christian and the Jews. Do you get it Bakr? ASSAD I do not understand. MO You have the Torah and it has the precepts of Allah. ABU BAKR Then the gospels and the Torah have not been changed until now?
MO The word of Allah can never change and no one can change it. That is what the Quraan says. ABU BAKR Rejoice Assad for the Messenger of Allah has testified to the Torah and the gospels. Assad bows to Mo. ASSAD Thank you for your counsel Mo. You are a good and wise man. Assad leaves. Bakr steps a bit closer to Mo. BAKR Did you mean what you said Messenger of Allah? MO Do not argue with the people of the book unless you have power. Don’t forget that they have warned about a false prophet. Also they have money and we need it. EXT. IN FRONT OF MO’S TENT Mo steps out of his tent. There is something wrong with him as he is sweating badly. He starts calling out to everyone and to no one, waving his arms about as he speaks. MO (loudly) Men of Mecca. I was sent to my nation as a Messenger for many years. Why don’t you believe and follow me. Mo’s speech comes out more like ramblings and it gets the attention of Bakr and the young ALI, age twenties, who is the son of Abo-Taleb. ABU BAKR Messenger of Allah, if you continue to preach to these people in a gentle manner you will get nowhere. Too many years have passed and those who believe your message are now few.
Mo looks at him with wild eyes, but we cannot be sure if he has even understood Bakr’s words. ALI Also, you cannot cut through metal unless you are using metal. What does the new verse say in the Quraan, Messenger of Allah? I want to know what Allah will say about that. When he responds, Mo doesn’t necessarily do it to Bakr. MO Verse?... Quraan?... Verse... Verse... Quraan Hahahahaha BAKR Yes, verse in the Quraan. ALI What does the new verse say? MO What Quraan? What verse? What are you talking about? After the death of Warqua Ibn Nofal, the inspiration has disappeared and I did not receive any new chapters. BAKR Not even a few verses Messenger of Allah? MO Not even one verse. Don’t say Messenger of Allah. Don’t say messenger of Allah. Both Ali and Bakr look at each other and frown. They don’t understand what Mo is talking about. BAKR & ALI What? The inspiration has disappeared? MO Waraqua is dead and the inspiration has disappeared? BAKR Waraqua is dead and the inspiration has disappeared.
Mo holds his hand to point. ALI I don’t understand what is the relationship between Waraqua’s death and the inspiration. MO Now I must return to the mountain once again for the third time to find a solution or to kill myself. I tried to kill myself by jumping from the top of the mountain two times before, but this time I will I will kill myself. EXT. MOUNTAIN - DAY A distraught Mo, walking alone on a mountain side, comes to a very steep cliff and looks down. He backs up about ten feet from the cliff and starts babbling to himself in an almost unintelligible manner, just barely audible what he is saying. MO I must jump. I must jump. I must kill myself. Waraqua died. Waraqua died. I need Waraqua. I need verses. I want Quraan. He starts moving toward the edge. MO (CONT’D) I must kill myself... I must jump. Just as Mo reaches the edge he suddenly stops and looks up into the sky as if something interrupted him. VOICE ??? MO What? What? Yes, I am Mo the unknown father. VOICE ???? MO Yes, I am Amina’s son. He has obviously herd something. He looks all around but can’t see anyone.
His head turns again as if he has heard this voice again. We don’t hear any voice; he is the only one who hears it. VOICE ???? MO Who are you? The Angel Gabriel? Welcome... welcome. Mo drops to his knees and puts his hands together. MO (CONT’D) Please Gabriel, please. Tell Me... what shall I do? VOICE ??? MO I am the Prophet. So I am the prophet of this nation. I am the Prophet. So I am the Prophet of this nation. Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. I am the Prophet of this nation. Moving in slowly getting closer and closer on Mo’s face, we hear the distorted sounds of horses hoofs pounding on the ground. Women are screaming, men are shouting out orders and the unmistakable sound of metal swords clashing together. All of these battle sounds start mixing together. Extreme close upon on Mo’s face sweating and shaking. The battle SOUNDS continue to get louder and louder. Suddenly all goes black and all the sounds stop. We hear only the shallow labored breathing of Mo. After several seconds the screen goes bright white and we see Mo’s almost naked body, curled up in the fetal position as it slams down onto the desert ground. INT. MO’S TENT - DAY Abu Bakr enters the tent and moves to where he had left Mo, but Mo is gone. BAKR Mo... Mo... Mo.
He is worried now and searches outside of the tent. He barely sees a naked man out in the desert. He reaches his side to help him. BAKR (CONTâ€™D) Mo Messenger Of Allah. Are you okay? MO I have never been better Bakr. You are looking at the Messenger of Allah. BAKR Yes, Mo. I know you are the Messenger of Allah. MO No my friend. Now only now I am the Messenger of Allah. A new Messenger of Allah. For I have been to the top of the mountain trying to kill myself and I heard the new word of Allah. BAKR New word of Allah? MO Yes, new word of Allah. Now is the hour that I shall come forth and bring the word for all to listen. And they will listen. Allah has given me new words. BAKR Is Allah changing his words? Praise Allah. Praise a new Messenger of Allah. EXT. MOâ€™S TENT - DAY Fully dressed now, Mo sits with a big SWORD beside him much like Bin Laden does. Several men are sitting around waiting to hear what he has to say. They are Bakr, Ali, OMAR, OBI as well as some OTHERS. All of them tie their heads with something strange like some gangs do. MO Men of Mo you are the ones chosen by Allah and his Messenger. (MORE)
48. MO (CONT'D) As such, you shall inherit the Earth with all its lavish and delight, such as wealth and power. From now on, swords talk.
ALI And women Messenger of Allah? MO Indeed you womanizer. You shall have all the women you ever want in paradise for eternity. OMAR Guide and inform us Messenger Of Allah. During the following speech we see images of brutal attacks by Mohammedâ€™s followers on Jewish caravans. MO We shall gather the men and the weapons. We will attack the trade caravans, killing the men and capturing The women. We shall loot the goods, the camels and any animals or anything else of value. OBI What about the children Messenger of Allah? You know some of us prefer children. MO No problem Obi. You can use whomever you like from the children and the rest of them we will sell as slaves, to buy more swords and horses. OBI Allah and Akbar! What happens if we get killed in battle? MO Then you shall be accounted as martyrs, inheriting paradise and all that lies in it. OBI Even children?
MO Of course you can do as you wish with the children infidels in paradise. That is what Allah in the Quraan says. And donâ€™t worry about your wife, if you get killed in battle I will marry her. I know she is very beautiful. OBI Indeed Messenger of Allah. OMAR And what else lies in paradise Messenger of Allah? MO The martyr gets a palace in paradise underneath of which will run rivers of milk, rivers of honey and rivers of wine. OMAR A river of wine? Allah is great! ALI No river of women Messenger of Allah? MO For the martyrs there are 72 virgins and the beauty of these virgins exceeds the beauty of the daughters of the earth. ALI Will there be sex in paradise Messenger of Allah? MO Indeed my cousin, grinding sex. And after you have had your way with her, Allah will make her a virgin once again. So what do you think about that? ALI Is there anything more beautiful or glorious than that, Messenger of Allah? MO Then I want your sword ready and your lives.
OMAR We are with you messenger of Allah. We’re all with you Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. The men begin to chant together as they draw out their swords and hold them up. ALL TOGETHER Allah and Akbar. Allah and Akbar. EXT. DESERT - DAY A large caravan of many camels, horses, donkeys, men, women, and children moving through a narrow pathway that has high and steep rock wall on one side and several large rocks on the other side. As the caravan moves through the pass, Mo and his men attack, charging at them on horseback. For the men and women of the caravan there is no escape. Ali reaches them first and is bearing down upon a MAN who holds his hands out and screams. MAN Peace be with you! Peace be with you! But Ali’s sword has to slash through the air only once to take this man’s head clean off. Mo bears down on another MAN and slashes his sword across the man’s chest sending him to the ground as blood squirts out, some of it hitting Mo in the face. Then he immediately turns to find another MAN running toward him with a sword and he drives his sword right through the torso. Another MAN from the caravan runs to one of Mo’s men on the horse and jumps up stabbing him with a long dagger causing him to fall off the horse dead. Three of Mo’s men race past this man on horses, each one slicing them with their swords as they go. After the third one slices him, he falls to the ground dead. Abu Bakr hops off his horse and charges these people on foot, quickly killing two of them with his sword and then looks for more people to attack. Omar jumps off his horse and runs into the people. OMAR Allah and Akbar.
He easily kills one of the SLAVEWS who barley tries to defend himself. He then turns to chase down another MAN. Ibn Massoud is surrounded by three MEN who all have long staffs in their hands and they are using them to defend from the man’s sword. Ibn Massoud is able to kill them all, sending blood flying in all directions. Obi Mesa’s large steel tipped spear runs a man through and then pulls it out so that his body falls. He then turns and runs it into another MAN. Ziad Ibn Alhartha runs through the crowd of people screaming. ZIAD IBN ALHARTHA Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. He is chopping everybody he sees with his sword as he is surrounded by his enemy. He is swinging his sword around like a mad man. Blood is flying everywhere and within seconds there are dead bodies laying around him and he is drenched in blood looking like a devil of some sort. He looks around and realizes that they have victory and he raises his arms high in the air as he calls out. MO Those who bring victory to Allah, Allah shall make them victorious. Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. a pair of men’s feet walking along until they finally come to a stop, revealing a sheet hanging off the side of a cart that is hitched to donkeys. A hand reaches out and pulls the sheet to the side revealing several women ranging from older to very young crowded in fear. Mo is standing there looking at them, his face still covered in blood. He smiles at them in a devilish way. MO (CONT’D) Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. EXT. MO’S DESERT TENT - DAY Mo is sitting on the ground with his sword beside him. He is surrounded by many of his followers. Among them is Amir Ibn Adii, a blind man, early forties. ABU EL-DEH-DAH Messenger of Allah, I have divorced my wife twice and I have taken her back twice. Just the other day I divorced her for the third time and now I want her back. (MORE)
52. ABU EL-DEH-DAH (CONT'D) We have five children together and the youngest is an infant, whom I need her help with. I also need her help picking dates from my palm trees as I own over six hundred palm trees.
MO This is a simple matter Abu-El-DehDah. The Quraan says wait until she marries another man or find one for her and she gets a divorce. Then you can marry her again. Obi, one of Moâ€™s inner circle, interrupts. OBI Easy you can find an incompetent man to marry her and pay him to divorce her. MO This is not accepted by the Quraan. Her new husband must test her honey and she must test his honey. By the way, give me your palm trees so that Allah will reward you double in paradise. Is it not a good investment? Isnâ€™t it? ABU-EL-DEH-DAH Of course, Messenger of Allah. I declare it among all the people here, the six hundred palm trees are for the Messenger of Allah and the blessing is for me. Mo stands and holds his sword out as the chanting begins to subside. Ali approaches. ALI Messenger of Allah, I have heard Asmaa, daughter of Marwan, has made statements that are critical of you. She uses words that even I will not repeat here. What shall we do about her? Mo gets angry at this and gestures with his sword wildly. MO Curse her! Curse her! She shall taste my sword. And then all who follow her will be afraid.
Amir Ibn Adii steps forward and bows before Mo. MO (CONT’D) Go and see this woman and make sure she is dead. Tell all those around her that there shall be no safe place to hide for those who are not Muslims. AMIR IBN ADII As you command Messenger of Allah. ABU-EL-DEH-DAH Messenger of Allah. She is a mother who has many children including an infant. And Amir is blind. EXT. DESERT - DAY A tent in another part of the desert. A woman named Asmaa is nursing an infant and has several other small children around her. Amir Ibn Adii and a few other men arrived on horses, get off their horses and walk toward Asmaa. One of the other men whispers in Amir’s ear, as if to guide him. Then the men stop some several feet out in front of her. AMIR IBN ADI Am I in the presence of Asmaa, daughter of Marwan the infidel? ASMAA Yes... Yes you are. AMIR IBN ADII Step forth and present yourself to me. Asmaa looks at this blind man and to the other men. She knows they are very dangerous and she stands up carrying the infant. AMIR IBN ADII (CONT’D) I have a message for you from Mohammed the Messenger of Allah. He pulls the infant from her breast and throws the baby to the other side toward the other children. ASMAA (screaming) I am here before you. What message do you have for me?
OMEER IBN ADII This. Amir shoves his sword into this woman’s torso so that it comes out of her back. Then he pulls it out as her lifeless body drops to the ground, her children crying and screaming on her body. Amir then turns and calls out to all who might listen. AMIR No God except Mo’s God! No God except Mo’s God! Mo’s is the Messenger and the Quraan our constitution! Two of the men lead Amir to his horse. EXT. DESERT WITH TENTS - DAY Assad, a strong looking Jewish man in his forties, turns as he speaks to his second in command, the slightly younger KENANAH, but not less strong than his master. ASSAD But I do not understand. Although I have only met him twice before, I have known this man Mo for a long time. He has for many years been a friend to both the Jewish and the Christian people. Can you be certain of what you speak Kenanah? KENANAH I know what my eyes have seen and what my ears have heard. Mo and his band of men are attacking caravans and killing all who dare stand against them. He has proclaimed publicly that all those who do not become Muslim shall perish. ASSAD (in shock) All those who do not become Muslims shall perish? KENANAH That is what everyone is saying. It would not surprise me if he intended to kill us all with his bare hands.
ASSAD This cannot be. It cannot be. It makes no sense. He has nothing to gain by this, other then personal riches. KENANAH Perhaps that is his true motive. ASSAD Perhaps. (he thinks) I shall go and speak with him. KENANAH And I shall go with you. ASSAD No, it is important that I go to him alone and humble. KENANAH Then we shall pray for your safe return. ASSAD Have my horse prepared for the journey. KENANAH Yes master. EXT. DESERT - DAY Mohammed is praying in the Mosque, surrounded by many of his men who are also praying. The blind Amir, with his helper, shuffles through them and settles in next Mo and begins to pray with him. Amir wears bloody clothes. Mo looks at him. AMIR It is done Messenger of Allah> Mo smiles and puts his hand on Amirâ€™s shoulder in approval. He turns to address the crowd of men. MO Muslim nation of no God but Allah and Mo the Messenger of Allah, if anyone needs an example of a man who is made victorious by Allah and his messenger, let him take Amir Ibn Adii as an example and look up to him.
Amir grins wickedly showing his raggedy teeth. The other men all begin to chant together. EVERYONE Allah and Akbar! Allah and Akbar! Allah and Akbar! EXT. DESERT - DAY A lone rider on a horse moves across the desert. It is the Jew, Assad. EXT. IN FRONT OF MO’S TENT - DAY Mo sits drinking wine and eating along with several of his followers. An unattractive woman, Om Bashar, approaches him. OM BASHAR Do you need something Messenger Of Allah? MO What? OM BASHER Something? MO I’m always want something, but not from you. You are ugly. Now go from my sight. Other MEN close by laugh, as Om Bashar moves off. Another woman, OM AYMAN, age 30, approaches Mo. She is very attractive. OM AYMAN Can I do anything for you, messenger of Allah? My husband left already with the caravan. Mo looks her up and down. MO Yes, go and wait for me in your tent. I am coming. She then bows her head and moves off. One of the women close by, BOTHAINA, speaks up.
BOTHAINA Isn’t it shameful for a woman to expose herself to a man unknown to her? MO Have you not hered what Allah has said in the Quraan? The Messenger of Allah desires whom he wants and shall be given whom he wants. Bothaina realizes that she has made a mistake and no longer wishes to question Mohammed’s judgment. BOTHAINA Allah is true in all that he says in the Quraan. MO And Allah says in his Quraan, if a married woman offers herself to the Messenger and he wants to have her, he is allowed, even though the rest of the believers are not allowed. ALI Allah in the Quraan is true in everything he says. How pleasurable is our Islamic ways. We get pleasure here on Earth and in paradise, the great paradise with all of the virgins. Praise be to Allah and his Messenger. One of Mo’s men comes up to him and whispers into his ear. Mo gives the man a stern look. MO Show him in. The man walks away and within moments he comes back into the front of Mohammed with the Jew Assad, who steps forward and greets Mo. All of the others grow quiet as they watch and listen. ASSAD Mo, Messenger of Allah. It has been a very long time since we last met. MO Indeed. And what has brought you to me Assad? Assad looks around for a moment and then continues.
ASSAD Both Jews and Christians all over these lands are living in great fear of you and your men. MO I am simply doing the work of Allah and what Allah says in the Quraan to me, nothing more, nothing less. If this is something for Jews or Christians to fear, then so be it. ASSAD I have been told that many have been killed. I don’t understand. There once was a great truce between Jews and Christians, a truce honored by all of us. MO That was then... this is now. The word of Allah in the Quraan must prevail. Mo stands and holds his sword out. MO (CONT’D) Now we are strong... the sword talks. I give you an offer to become Muslims or to pay an extortion... or the sword. All of the men chime in. ALL TOGETHER Allah and Akbar. Allah and Akbar. Assad understands all too well. ASSAD Then we are to be enemies? Mo puts his hand on the man’s shoulder. MO I like to hear from you there is one God and Mo his Messenger. Remember, your God in the Torah ordered the Jews to destroy the city of Jerico and kill all people, even the women and children. Am I right?
ASSAD Yes. Eloheem our God did that, but if you noticed God gave this city of 450 years a chance. Also he did not except extortions or ask anyone to convert to Judaism. Also for your knowledge we believe in one God. Before you were born, even the Pharos in Egypt believed in one god, 5000 years ago. MO Believing in one God is not enough. You cannot go to paradise unless you say “Allah and Mo his Messenger”. Go read the Quraan or move to Palestine or pay extortion. ASSAD I received your message and I will not read your book. Assad leaves very angry. ALI Did Allah really in the Quraan give the holy land to the Jews? MO Yes Ali, in the fifth verse 20/21. Muslim people do not read and if they do read they do not understand. Another MAN approaches Mo. His name is Obi. OBI Messenger of Allah, have you heard that Kaab son of Al-Ahran is criticizing you in his speeches? Mo gets angry. MO Is that true? Abu Na’la, are you too busy in your whore house making money while your brother openly criticizes me? ABU NA’LA Messenger of Allah, I have heard of that, so I did not attend his wedding, Which was only two nights ago. (MORE)
60. ABU NA’LA (CONT'D) Also my daughters want to quit the work as prostitutes in my whore house. I need your opinion from the Quraan, Messenger of Allah.
MO Now you shall go to your brother. Teach him what it means to stand against the Messenger of Allah. Give him my gift and I will ask Allah to give you verses regarding your daughters and your whore house. ABU NA’LA As you wish. Those who obey the Messenger, obey Allah and his Quraan. Abu Na’la leaves. EXT. DESERT OASIS - NIGHT There are a few tents set up in another small desert Oasis. Abu Na’la and his two men approach on horses and dismount. ABU NA’LA Brother Kaab Ibn Alashraf. Where are you my brother Kaab? Kaab comes out of the tent. KAAB Who is here? Do I hear the voice of my brother? He sees Abu Na’la coming toward him, KAAB (CONT’D) Brother it is so wonderful to see you. (to another) Slave go and start a fire and grill my best goat. We must have a feast to celebrate the coming of my brother Abu Na’la. The slave moves off to do as he is told. The two brothers come to an embrace. ABU NA’LA I am happy to see you this one last time my brother.
As he is about to ask what he means by that, Kaab frowns strongly. When he tries to speak the blood begins to run out of his mouth. Abu Na’la pulls the long blade of his dagger out of his brother’s body and allows him to fall to the ground. ABU NA’LA (CONT’D) You should not have spoken badly about the Messenger of Allah, brother. EXT. MO’S TENT - NIGHT Mo and the other men are still sitting around drinking. From far they can hear men chanting. THE MEN (from faraway) Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. MO (to all) Hear this noise men? For this is the noise that is the greatness of Allah and his Messenger. Abu Na’la and his two riders arrive at the tent. Abu Na’la is carrying something under his arm that is wrapped in a CLOAK. ABU NA’LA Messenger of Allah. MO Abu Na’la, have you done what was asked of you? Abu Na’la unwrapps the thing covered by the cloak and presents the HEAD of his brother to Mo. Mo smiles and holds up the head with one hand for all to see. MO (CONT’D) Behold! Abu Na’la has done what the Messenger of Allah has requested. He has certainly reserved his place in Allah’s paradise. Praise be to Allah! Praise be to Allah! ALL TOGETHER Praise be to Allah... Praise be to Allah!
MO Also, Allah has given him verses in the Quraan about his whore house, saying “do not push your daughters to do adultery if they do not want to do it.” But if you push them, do not worry. Allah will forgive you. We see Abu Na’la grabbing his daughters to the whore house and collecting money. After he makes sure everything is okay, he starts to pray. INT. TENT OF ASSAD - NIGHT Assad enters and is joined by Kenanah. KENANAH What is it Assad? What have you learned? ASSAD This man Mo has gone mad. He says all Jews and Christians must convert to Islam or pay him extortion or be killed. KENANAH He cannot be serious. ASSSAD He is very serious, my friend. And he has many men behind him very thirsty for blood. KENANAH Then what shall we do? ASSAD We shall defend our selves. KENANAH But, but we cannot win! Can we? ASSAD I don’t know. But we will fight just the same. Kenanah looks at him and the two men stand there for a moment of silence. ASSAD (CONT’D) Tell the men to pray tonight. For soon we will go to war. (MORE)
63. ASSAD (CONT’D) I mean war will come to us. There is no escaping it.
KENANAH Yes Master. We have to hide our treasure. ASSAD Of course, go ahead. Kenanah exits, leaving Assad alone in deep thought. EXT. IN FRONT IF ABU BAKR’S TENT - DAY Abu Bakr’s wife, Om Roman, is sitting quietly and knitting when Abu Bakr enters excitedly. ABU BAKR Let the house of Abu Bakr be joyous. OM RAMON What is wrong with you husband? We do not have that much to be happy for. ABU BAKR Oh but we do. The Messenger of Allah has asked our daughter’s hand in marriage. Om Ramon seems concerned. OM RAMON And this make you happy? ABU BAKR Yes, of course, it makes me very happy! My daughter shall have the stars! Are you crazy? reached must be now!
OM RAMON crazy? Is your Mohammed Your daughter has not yet her seventh year yet. Mo fifty five years old by
ABI BAKR He is fifty-three not fifty-five. He has both wealth and power. My daughter shall be his bride whether we say yes or no. (MORE)
64. ABI BAKR (CONT'D) And he has promised to make the Caliph of the Muslims after him.
OM RAMON Then there is nothing I can do for my poor daughter Aisha. She is not yet seven years of age and he is fifty three. What a strange world that we live in... what a strange world. There is a moment of silence and Mohammed enters. MO Bakr... did you announce the good news to the bride? I would not be surprised if she has fainted over the good news. OM RAMON I am the only one who came close to fainting. MO From joy, of course, my mother in law. OM RAMON Of course, my son in law. MO I already knew that or I would not be the Messenger of Allah. Now where is my bride? Where is my beautiful bride, my father in law? OM RAMON She is on the swing playing with other children, my son in law. BAKR Go and fetch her woman. Do not keep your soon to be son in law waiting... I mean the Messenger of Allah waiting! Om Ramon does as she is told and immediately gets up and heads out the door. EXT. HOUSE OF ABU BAKR - DAY Om Ramon goes outside to fetch her daughter. Some women are doing chores.
She finds the children between 6 and 9 years old playing together on the tree swings. She picks up Aisha and takes her to wash her face and goes inside the house. INT. HOUSE OF ABU BAKR - DAY BAKR Thank you Messenger of Allah. You bless me by coming into my humble home. MO You are a good man and a good follower of me Bakr. You will be a good father in law and you shall indeed have your place in Allah’s paradise. BAKR Praise be to Allah... praise be to Allah. Om Ramon returns leading Aisha by the han. She takes her over to Mo and puts her hand into Mo’s hand or puts her on his lap. OM RAMON Aisha this is Mohammed Messenger of Allah. He is going to be your husband. Mo looks at her with that look that only a man can give a woman as he rubs the back of her hand. MO Isn’t that wonderful Aisha, my bride? Praise be to Allah. Mo stands and picks Aisha up in his arms and on his shoulder. MO (CONT’D) Come, for now you belong to me, to the Messenger of Allah. He walks toward the door carrying the girl. Aisha looks back toward her mother and reaches out a hand. She calls out, nearly in tears, simply because she does not understand what just happened. AISHA Mother... Mother... Om Ramon, I’m hungry.
Om Ramon looks at her. OM RAMON It is okay Aisha... everything will be alright. Om Ramon watches them leave. It is obvious she doesn’t believe her own words. A single tear runs down her cheek. EXT. ABU BAKR’S HOME - DAY Mo carries Aisha outside as the other women are blessing them. WOMEN May Allah bless you both... May Allah bless you both. Aisha is frightened and does not know what is happening. Once again she calls out to her mother. AISHA Mother... Mother... Mother I’m hungry. MO With me there is no need to be frightened, my bride. AISHA Where are you taking me? MO Wherever I want to go. I am the Messenger of Allah. Do you not know that my bride? Mo says something in her ear. She slaps him on his face, but he just laughs. EXT. OUTSIDE MO’S TENT - DAY (NIGHT) After the wedding, guests are watching two slaves in a knife fight to the death. The guests make way to allow Mo and his bride to step right up to the edge of the action. One of the slaves swings his knife at the other, who jumps back to avoid being cut and bounces into Mo. Mo shoves the slave back in with a smile on his face, much the way a child might throw a baseball back to the players.
MO Kill him you piece of...! I hope you enjoy this Aisha because it is all for you. Everything today is for your wedding. AISHA These men try to kill each other for me? MO Yes, for your enjoyment. Isn’t that wonderful my bride? AISHA (not sure) Yes... yes it is. Where are you Om Ramon? The Slave is pushed back toward Mo again. This time Mohammed takes him by the back of his neck and puts his face right up to his ear. MO Kill him this time or I’ll kill you both. With that he shoves the Man toward the other Slave. The two men circle each other for a few moments while the on lookers shout at them both. Then the Man who Mo threatened lunges forward and sinks his blade into the other man’s throat. Blood gushes everywhere as the man slowly falls to the ground. Mo is pleased. MO (CONT’D) God bless you... God bless your hand. The others cheer. Aisha is horrified at the amount of blood that has gushed out of the man’s body and turns and runs off. MO (CONT’D) Aisha... Aisha, my bride... my bride. Mo runs after her. EXT. OASIS - DAY Aisha is running. Mo is running after her. He pauses to see which way she went and takes a slightly different rout. Aisha runs around the corner of a tent. Just as she is about to go around the next, Mo snatches her up into his arms.
MO Got you! Why did you run you silly girl? It was only blood. AISHA I am ashamed, but I could not stand to look at it. MO You will get used to such things. We all did. Now come, I have a surprise for you. AISHA More blood? He turns and walks away, carrying Aisha and still talking. MO Today you will become a woman. AISHA I need my mother. MO Hahahaha, by doing what a bride is suppose to do with a groom. EXT. MO’S TENT - DAY Mo carries Aisha as she screams, calling her mother. He carries her inside his tent then sticks out his head from the opening of the tent. MO (loudly) Everyone shall go now! Right away everyone begins to leave, blessing the Messenger of Allah as they go. At the rear of the group we see Om Ramon slowly backing away, never taking her eyes off her daughter. When everyone has gone, Mo takes his head inside the tent. INT. MO’S TENT – DAY MO Take off your clothes Aisha. Now! AISHA What? Why?
MO Because it is time for you to enjoy me with blood. Aisha frowns as she is young and still doesn’t get what he is talking about. AISHA Blood! Again blood... you will kill me? Mother! Mother! MO Hahahah, you are going to understand today what kind of blood I mean. Now take off your clothes. Aisha hesitates and Mo tells her one more time, in a stern manner. MO (CONT’D) Take off your clothes. NOW! NOW! Aisha begins to take her clothes off, as does Mo. (We only see them in close ups and over the shoulder shots so that we do not reveal their nudity.) Aisha looks at Mo‘s naked body and it is obvious that she sees his excited manhood and is frightened by it. AISHA What... What are you going to do? Are you going to kill me? Mo puts his hands on her shoulders and pushes her down on the pillows. She is very frightened now and begins to squirm, but he has her and he is not letting go. Mo leans in closer and closer. Aisha watches Mo coming down toward her and she is frightened. Mo has an evil grin on his face. EXT. MO’S TENT - NIGHT Aisha is crying very loudly in pain. AISHA No... no... please... don’t... mercy! no... mercy... ahhhhhhhh... ahhh.
Aishaâ€™s mother Om Ramon is standing nearby with tears streaming down her face as she hears the cries of her child. There is nothing she can do. 2 YEARS LATER EXT. OASIS - DAY Mo, along with his men and his young wife, Aisha, are sitting around eating and drinking. Omar is attracted to the young Aisha and is staring at her a lot. MO Life is good when we can enjoy the spoiles of war. Wine and gold and beautiful women. ALI And best of all are the women. Is it not Messenger of Allah? OMAR No. The best is the liquor. MO (cheerful) They are both very good. ALI Does Allah allow the drinking of rum? MO Allah says in the Quraan to make the rum from the palms and the grapes. OMAR Allah is great indeed. (he drinks) Messenger of Allah is it possible for me to exchange wives with you. You can take my wife and I take Aisha... only for one night. MO I can accept your wife, she is beautiful. But you cannot choose any woman from my concubines because Allah recently has ordered me not to exchange my wives any more. (MORE)
71. MO (CONT'D) But, he says in the Quraan, if I see any married women I like, her husband must divorce her for me immediately. (calling out) Where is Zaher?... Where is Zaher?
AISHA I see that your God is always prompt when it comes to your lust. Mo gives her a look, but says nothing. ALI And what does Allah say about gambling Messenger of Allah? MO Allah says in the Quraan of rum and gambling... that there is enjoyment in both. Where is Zaher? OMAR I know that there is good in drinking rum, but what is good in gambling? Mo stands up. In thought, he goes to his goat. MO Try to feed and touch it and when the next Gabriel come, I shall ask him. A man named OBI approaches and bows to Mo as he speaks. OBI Messenger of Allah, I need your help with a problem. MO Speak Obi. OBI My son and I wailed into my house yesterday and witnessed my wife in bed with another man. May I kill or divorce her? MO Four Muslim men must witness such an act before you can consider her guilty. You must place a rope between them. (MORE)
72. MO (CONT'D) If it passes through, she is innocent. If the rope does not pass through she is guilty. Where is Zaher?
ALI That means if my wife commits adultery in place and there are no Muslims to witness it then she is not guilty? MO Do you live in such a place where there are no Muslims, Ali? Where is Zaher? OBI Why is the Messenger of Allah asking for Zaher? ALI Because he is his boyfriend. OBI Is the messenger of Allah gay? ALI Yes. He is and Omar also. OBI I know about Omar but is the Messenger of Allah dominant or submissive? MO Both. Do you remember the night of the Jin? OBI Of course Messenger of Allah. ALI (drunk) What is the night of the jin? BAKR (drunk) Shut up, Ali. You only show your ignorance. Ali stands and grasps the handle of his sword with one hand.
ALI I am ignorant? I will show you ignorance. Bakr comes up to face off with him. But Mo gets right in the middle of it. MO Stop it! Stop it! He looks at both men to make sure they understand him. MO (CONTâ€™D) Now finish the story, Obi. OBI As I was saying, in the night of the Jin we were... ALI (drunk) And what is the night of the jin? BAKR Again you show your ignorance. Ali jumps up to face off with him. ALI Do not speak to me in such a manner. Once again Mo gets between the men to stop them. MO Stop it now. I swear by the God of Mo that I will let you continue this alone. I have better things to do with my time. The men listen to him and sit back down. OMAR What do I have to do Messenger of Allah? It is nearly midnight. MO I am busy with eleven wives, plus Zaher. ALI (with a smile) So it is a special night.
MO No, Ali. Messenger of Allah visits his eleven wives every night. ALI Every night? MO Yes Ali, and after number eleven that I take a shower. BAKR The shower after number eleven? The men all laugh and cheer, holding their noses, at hearing this. Then Aisha speaks up. AISHA Tell them Mo about the time the Jewish man put a curse on you. MO No... No... No... They do not wish to hear this. AISHA What do you mean no? Did he not put a magic spell on you? MO You know he put me under a magic spell but... AISHA (chuckling) Okay, I will tell the story then. The Messenger of Allah, the one who has eleven wives, was put under a magic spell, and on that day and for twelve months after he was not able to do what he usually does. ALI (drunk) What, did he not come to his women? AISHA No, not for twelve months. MO No, but I made up for it after. The men laugh and cheer.
OMAR Messenger of Allah, it has been said that Om Querfa has been reciting poems against you. Mo gets angry at hearing this. MO Is that true? ALI I have heard it also Messenger of Allah. MO (calling out) Ziad... my son Ziad! And in just a few seconds Ziad comes into the tent. ZIAD IBNEL-HARTHA Yes, my father. MO A woman named Om Querfa criticizes me with her silly poems. Will you go and make an example of her? Everyone must know that we will not tolerate an infidel daring to insult the messenger of Allah. ZIAD As you wish father. Mo stands and moves in very close to Ziad and speaks quietly into her ear. MO Make a good example of her, my son. Make me proud of you. And take your time. ZIAD I will father. With that Ziad leaves. OMAR Is it true that you gave your name to Ziad?
MO It is true Omar. His name is now Ziad son of Mo. He is my son by adoption. EXT. MO’S TENT - NIGHT Mo exits his tent on his way to Ziad’s tent. Aisha follows him, watching as he goes. SAFWAN, a handsome young man, appears next to her. SAFWAN Has your husband left? AISHA Yes, I know he went to his daughter in law Ziad’s wife Zanab but his gang is still inside. SAFWAN Then let us go behind the camels. AISHA Yes, please, I miss you. Safwan picks up Aisha and carries her off. EXT. ZIAD’S TENT - NIGHT Inside the tent stands the very attractive Zanab, his daughter in law. She is dressed in somewhat revealing clothing. Mo lifts up the tent flap and enters. ZANAB (Surprised) ) Yes, oh Messenger of Allah? Mo’s eyes run up and down this woman’s body with lust. ZANAB (CONT’D) Your son is not here. MO (smiling) I know. I know. I have come to see you. Mo takes her in his arms. ZANAB Maybe your son is coming?
MO No, I have sent him away and I asked him to take his time. ZANAB But I am your daughter in law. MO Who? Zaid is not my son from now on. Zaid? I do not know him. You are min, only you are for me. For you, I am going to cancel the adoption. Islam nation forbids adoption because of Zanab. This is the next verse in the Quraan. Burning up, Mo kisses her passionately and takes her down in a very passionate act. Aisha and Safwan look on. EXT. DESSERT - DAY In another area of the desert, three men pull up on hoses and dismount. One of these men is Ziad Ibn-El-Harhta. The three men approach a very old woman who uses a cane to stand, and who is now attending to some goats. She is Om Querfa. ZIAD Are you the old Wretch Om Querfa who criticizes my father Messenger of Allah. OM QUERFA Ha... Ha... Ha... Your father hahaha. ZIAD Yes my father. Mo and Zanab in a passionate moment. OM QUERFA I am her. My age has exceeded over one hundred and twenty years and all my young life I have not seen such a murderous thug Mo. He kills men, captures women and children, robs the caravans, breaches agreements and treaties, he sells the children as slaves after he and his men have used them. (MORE)
78. OM QUERFA (CONT'D) And what’s more, he does this all in the name of Allah. What God is this who is such an oppressor and so unfair to the people?
ZAID I will show you old woman who the God of Mohammed is. He makes a sign with his hand and his men move in on this women. A rope is tied around the old woman’s ankle. Her other ankle also has a rope tied to it. The men are now tying those ropes onto two camels each facing in opposite directions. When the men are ready they motion to Ziad. ZIAD (to the old woman) Do you wish to save your life by paying the Messenger of Allah 100 camels as extortion? Do so and he leaves you alone. OM QUERFA Hahaha, first time I see God asking for a bribe! Hahahha no... answer... to this God... She simply smirks at him and spits on the ground. Ziad motions to his men who both begin to hit the two camels until they start to move and split the old women’s body in half. The camels moving the ropes... stretching... Ziad watching... then a large amount of blood splattering on the ground. EXT, OASIS FRONT OF MO’S TENT - DAY Mo is sitting with his sword, surrounded by many of his followers, who are taking in his wisdom. MO Whomever refuses to follow Islam has only two choices. Pay extortion or die! Allah ordered me to wage war against all people until they say “no God but Allah” and that “Mo is his messenger.” OMAR And what about the Jews and the Christians?
MO Especially the Jews and Christians because they believe in one God but they do not believe that Mo is his messenger. Now we are strong enough to demand this. Bothina, a beautiful lady, speaks up. BOTHINA Messenger of Allah a man may have four wives and he may be intimate with any of the slaves he owns... MO (cuts off) the women too may have access to their male slaves. So do what you want with your male slaves. They are yours. Islam is fair! BOTHINA So it is allowed that a woman may enjoy a man in the absence of her husband at war for instance? MO That is true. I did give permission to the men during the war to enjoy foreign women. Also, when the men come back from war, I stop them outside the city. This is to give their women time, if she has a man, to let him go. BOTHINA Messenger of Alla how can I choose a right husband? MO Whenever a man and a woman are in agreement, let them make love for three night. If they enjoy each other then let them marry. If they do not enjoy each other, they can try more nights or let them part. During this talk. EXT. OUTSIDE MOâ€™S TENT - NIGHT Ziad and his men ride upon their horses and dismount. Ziad enters the tent.
INT. MO’S TENT - FOLLOWING Mo looks up and smiles. MO What news do you have Ziad? ZIAD I found the old woman and she spoke poorly of you, as you said. So I split her in half. MO Good Job! ZIAD I did what you said exactly. Mo’s eyes opened wider in glee. He stands and smiles broadly, very pleased with this news. MO Bless you Ziad. ZIAD Allah is true in all ways. Now I shall see to my wife, father. MO Oh... your wife! Yes... yes... of course. Mo walks Ziad outside the tent. MO (CONT’D) Your wife Zanab is very beautiful. ZIAD I shall divorce her so that you can marry her Messenger of Allah. MO Oh! Now you must be satisfied by her first. ZIAD I do not understand father? Mo puts his hand on Ziad’s shoulder.
MO Just go to your beautiful Zanab. But before you do anything, drink two cups of camel urine to make yourself healthy. ZAID Is that right? MO Oh yes, this is the perfect medication. ZAID Okay father. Thank you, Messenger of Allah. He leaves surprised and not at all sure what just happened. Mo watches Ziad walk toward his tent. He speaks quietly to himself. MO Go fool and have sex with her one last time. She might get pregnant and I will marry her and the child will be attributed to me. But I will have to retract my adoption of you first. Mo goes back into the tent. He is deep in thought. INT. MO’S TENT - NIGHT OMAR Messenger of Allah have you really been given a new verse? MO Yes Omar, I have been given a new verse... a holy verse from Allah. ALL TOGETHER Praise be to Allah... Praise be to Allah’ Messenger. MO The holy verse canceled the adoption. It says “attribute them to their fathers.”
OMAR Should we understand then you will retract your adoption Messenger of Allah? MO Not me... but maybe Allah. OMAR So Ziad shall no longer be your son, but shall once again be called â€œZiad son of unknown father?â€? MO Yes. OMAR Yes. ALI What a wonder. MO And where is the wonder Ali? He shall divorce his wife Zanab and I shall marry her in the same night, if Allah is willing? OMAR What about the divorced woman waiting period? Like Allah says in the Quraan. MO (upset) Omar, have you forgotten that I am the Messenger of Allah? Allah has already married me and Zanab in the seventh heaven and his Angels are a witness to our wedding. Do you have any objections? OMAR Now I understand. Excuse my ignorance, Messenger of Allah. May Allah bless the marriage. ALI Mmm, now I understand why the adoption has been canceled. MO Did you say something Ali?
ALI Yes. May Allah bless the marriage. I heard, the Jews treasure entitled
OMAR Messenger of Allah, that have a great cache of and I think we should be to it.
MO And who has this treasure? ALI I think it is being held by Kenanah and his father, the leader of their tribe. MO Then send the spies and find out the exact location of the treasure. OMAR But Messenger of Allah, we have a treaty with them. MO There are no absolutes in Islam, have you not herd? Beside, there is nothing in our treaty about treasure. Also, I am the Messenger of Allah. Get the men ready. OMAR As you command Messenger of Allah Omar gets up leaving Mo sitting with his sword. EXT. DESERT - DAY Outside of his large tent, Mo sits with his sword in the same way. He is taking a drink of wine from a cup and then speaks to the others that are present, which include most of his men. We donâ€™t see Omar among them yet. MO I have been to the mountain and Allah has spoken to me once again. ALL TOGETHER Praise be to Allah and praise be to his Messenger.
DA-HYA-ELKALBY And what has Allah told you Messenger of Allah? If I am worthy enough to ask? MO Yes, you may ask, my friend. He said the life of a Muslim shall not be taken by an infidel, and that I, the Messenger of Allah, shall make sure that this does not take place. DA-HYA-ELKALBY Even if it is a Jew or a Christian? MO It matters not. I was ordered to wage war against all mankind until the whole world believes that there is no other God but Allah, and that Mohammed is the Messenger of Allah. And if they profess that, I shall spare their lives, women and money. DA-HYA-ELKALBY Messenger of Allah, I am married, but I have a female friend that I am intimate with. I built her a house and I visit her every time I have a chance. She became pregnant and has given me a beautiful daughter. She is now 19 years old, blonde, with an excellent physique. MO Where is the problem Ibn Masoud? DA-HYA-ELKALBY My son wants to marry her, but I objected immediately. MO Why? DA-HYA-ELKALBY Why? How can he marry his sister? MO Have you lawfully married your mistress? DA-HYA-ELKALBY No, she is only my lover.
MO Then you did not read and understand the Quraan well. DA-HYA-ELKALBY How Messenger of Allah? MO The daughter of an adulteress relationship is not your legitimate daughter and, therefore, she is not related to you or your son. DA-HYA-ELKALBY Messenger of Allah, I assure you that the girl is my daughter from my own flesh and blood. She has my mothers face. MO I know that and Iâ€™m sure she is your real daughter, but the Quraan considers her a stranger because you did not wed her mother legally. DA-HYA-ELKALBY What does this mean Messenger of Allah? MO It means... go ahead and let your son marry your daughter. DA-HYA-ELKALBY If she is not my daughter, I shall marry her myself. MO (smiling) May Allah bless you. Do not forget to divorce one of your four wives before you marry your daughter. DA-HYA-ELKALBY God willing. MO Also, give me your old wife. I know she is beautiful. Divorce your wife because I want her. Okay? DA-HYA-ELKALBY Allah willing... Allah willing.
Da-Hya-Elkalby leaves as Omar arrives. OMAR Messenger of Allah. MO What news do you have for me Omar? OMAR Our spies have confirmed that the Jews do indeed have a great treasure. MO That is wonderful news. Do tell these Jews that they owe me this treasure as an extortion. If they don’t pay their tribute for being infidels Jews then they will find out themselves who is Mohammed the Messenger of Allah. I will make a holocaust for them. The men all raise their swords and cheer out loud. Mo’s is excited at the idea of battle and the spoils of war. EXT. THE BATTLE - DAY A tight close up of Mo as he speaks. We see the action of the battle through the dissolved image of his face. Mo turns and goes up a hill to his tent, far from the action of the battle. MO I command you to clear this land of the Jews and the Christians. If they do not become Muslims, I shall take their lands and their women, children and all of their riches from them. Mo sticks his head outside the tent. MO (CONT’D) Kill all of the men. Take the spoils, capture their women and gather their children to be sold on the slave market in Ekasa after you’ve used them. I will make a holocaust for Jews and Christians. Battle shots over the dialogue above.
Mo’s MEN on horses charge at the camera. Swords clashing together. A tent burning in large flames. A sword pushes deep into a man’s mid-section and then pulls out as he drops to the ground. Two men fighting with their swords. A whip pans through several men fighting and blood flying out in all directions. Assad kills a man and then turns toward us with his sword raised. Before he can do anything with it, another man’s sword sinks into his chest and goes right through his body. When the sword is pulled out, we see that it is Abu Bakr who has killed him. Abu Bakr spits on his body and turns to fight another. A man throws a spear that soars through the air and impels a man, killing him instantly. A Jewish man turns, his eyes open wide in terror. Then his head is severed from his body by a sword. It flys into the air and falls to the ground. Two of Mo’s men, Ali and Dahia El-Kalbi, are leading Kenanah along in shackles and chains. Mo’s face now dissolves out of the image and we are back to a normal scene. EXT. BATTLEFIELD - DAY Mo looks up to see Kenanah being arranged to him. MO So, has this Jew not confessed and told you where the treasure is yet? DAHIA EL-KALABI No, he has not Messenger of Allah. Mo steps up to Kenanah who is now being held up by Ali and Dahia. He grabs him by his hair and pulls his head back so that he can see his face. MO You have lost the battle. You have lost everything. Do not be a fool. (MORE)
88. MO (CONT'D) Tell me where the treasure is and I will allow you to die a quick and painless death. Hahaha, die a quick and painless death, hahaha...
Kenana looks at him with contempt, but says nothing. MO (CONT’D) So be it. (to the others) He has made his decision. Go and torture him until he tells you the location of the treasure. KENANAH Mercy Messenger of Allah, mercy. I beg you Mo. Mo is the mercy’s prophet. MO (chuckling) The time for mercy has already passed. Do not speak except to tell me the treasures location. Now go and torture him. DAHI As you command Messenger of Mercy And the men drag Kenanah away. EXT. SOME NEARBY TREES - DAY Dahia and Ali drag the man over to a place where they have a board nailed between two trees. Kenanah’s hands are bound together on a nail in the counter of the board so that they are up above his head. They take turns beating him, over and over again. Mo calls Ali from his tent. MO Ali, go bring me his bride. I heard he just got married. ALI Okay Messenger of Allah. MO I know how I can make him talk. Dahi continues torturing Kenenah over and over . Ali arrived with a beautiful girl.
ALI Kenanah’s wife, Messenger of Allah. Mo looks at her with passion. MO What’s your name beautiful? THE LADY Sofia... my father got killed. MO Okay... are you Kenanh’s wife? SAFIA We just married and my father got killed. Mohammed thinks. MO Where is the treasure of the Jews? SAFIA My brother and my father got killed. I don’t know. MO Are you sure? SAFIA Yes my father and my brother just died. Mo thinking. MO Then take her Ali to her husband. ALI As you command Messenger of Allah He takes her in front of Kenanah. They don���t let her touch him. Mo follows them looking at her. SAFIA Kenanah, Kenanah, what are they doing to you my husband? MO Tie her. Mo’s followers tie her 10 yards away from Kenanah. Mo goes to her to wipe her tears.
MO (CONT’D) Sofia don’t cry. I only want to know where is the treasure of the Jews? He turns to talk to Kenanah. AQs Mo starts talking he looks toward Kenanah’s wife Sofia as if she were his first treasure. KENANAH What treasure do you want Mo? MO All... All treasures... all. He keeps walking in between Kenanah and Sofia. MO (CONT’D) Whip him! His men start whipping Kenanah harder and harder in front of Sofia. Every time Kenanah screams from the pain Sofia screams too, even more then her husband. Mo tries to dry Sofia’s eyes. MO (CONT’D) Please, please Sofia tell him. SAFIA Kenanah, my husband, I lost my father, my brothers in this war. I need you give him the treasure. KENANAH What treasure does he want? First he wanted the gold. Now he wants you my wife, my bride, plus the gold. He is a hungry devil, a hungry dog. No... no... the dog has mercy. Not even a hungry sick dog. no... no... no. SAFIA I lost everything. I need you my husband. I lost my whole family. Kenanah starts to look faint and stays silent. Safia is crying and Mo pretends to almost cry with her. MO You kill me Safia you are so sweet.
Mo gives his men the same sign to whip Kenanah. Kenanah screams and Safia too. Mo stands between to give his sign to his men and tries to dry Safia’s eyes. Ali holds Kenanah’s hand out. ALI Wait! He is trying to tell us something. Ali moves his head close so that his ear is right up close to hear what Kenanah is saying. Ali hears what the man is saying and smiles broadly at Dahia. EXT. FRONT OF MO’S TENT Mo sits near his tent with his sword as Ali approaches him. Ali throws a large camel skin bag in front of Mo and lots of gold coins apill out of it. ALI There is your treasurer Messenger of Allah. Messenger of Mercy. Mo digs a hand into the gold and pulls it out allowing the gold pieces to spill out all over. He speaks with a big smile on his face. MO (laughing) Hahaha Allah and Akbar, Allah and Akbar. Is that Jew Kenanah still alive? ALI Just barley... he will not last long. MO Let us take the other treasure. Cut off his arms, legs, then his head. Do it in front of his wife, his beautiful Safia. ALI As you command Messenger of Mercy.
EXT. DESERT - DAY Ali walks over to where Kenanah is still hanging form his hands. His wife Sofia is tied not more than ten yards from him. Dahia steps up close and Ali. MO (to Kenanah) I like to hear what is the last words you want to say to your wife. KENANAH (to Safia) Safia, my bride, this is my will when God remembers the Jews and they come together in the holy land. I wish they do not forget our bones and I hope they charge Mo’s sons a restitution for our grandfather’s blood and for our women that he raped, for our children and our riches. SAFIA Kenanah my husband, my husband my... KENANAH Sofia I’m going... I’m leaving Safia. SAFIA Kenanah! Kenanah! Mo gets angry with laughter and gives Dahia a sign to kill Kenanah. Sahia looks at the man with disgust and then with one sharp movement, he draws his sword and spins it around slashing the sword at the man. His head drops to the ground as blood squirts out of his neck. That happens after they cut his arms and legs. Sofia sees this and is crying her eyes out. SOFIA Kenanah... Kenanah my husband. Dahia sheaths his sword and moves away. EXT. DESERT - DAY Dahia is dragging Sofia by her arms. A very beautiful young woman who is very upset, screaming and crying as she goes.
MO (to Dahia) She is yours for three days. Then bring her back to marry her and you go back to battle. And do not forget the pavit drink. DAHIA Thank you Messenger of Mercy. I will drink 2 cups of camel urine. MO (to himself) Good, very good. Maybe she will get pregnant and I can claim the child. SAFIA No! No! How how can I sleep with the killer of my husband? DAHIA (with a smile) Now, come with me. I have to go back to battle after three days. He pulls her into the tent, leaving us with just a view of the tent and sounds of Sofia trying to resist, sounds which quickly disappear. INT. MOâ€™S TENT - DAY Mo and Omar and 2 other MEN are sitting in Moâ€™s tent. OMAR Messenger of Allah, yesterday I took my wife by the other way, I mean from the back. What does the Quraan says about that? MO (laughing) The Quraan approves that when saying your wives are a place of cultivation for you. So cultivate whereever you wish. SAHILAH, a women in her forties with a very nice body and a beautiful face, approaches Mo.
SAHILAH Messenger of Allah, we have a son by adoption and when you retracted all adoption, my husband became jealous of him. So what advice do you have for me. What can I do? MO Breast feed him, Sahilah. SAHILAH But he is a grown man, a grown man with a mustache and a beard. MO I know he is Sahilah. Give him your breast and feed him ten times full and then he will be considered sanctioned by you. This is in the Quraan, no Muslim can doubt it. SAHILAH As you command Messenger of Allah. I shall breast feed him if this is what the Quraan says. As she leaves, Moâ€™s wife Aisha speaks up. AISHA Messenger of Allah, could I then breast feed any man I want to meet him alone? MO Of course, Aisha. It is in the Quraan. The Quraan is inspired words of Allah. Billal, a large black slave, approaches with Safia. BILALA Messenger of Allah, here is Safia, wife of the Jew. Mo looks at Safia, smiles and tries to touch her stomach and listen as she maybe pregnant. MO (Pulls her hand) Come sit. Mo pulls her down to a sitting position and then reaches behind himself with one hand produces something which he places into Sofiaâ€™s lap.
MO (CONT’D) This is my gift to you. Safia looks down in horror as she realizes that it is the head of her dead husband Kenanah. She screams! SAFIA My husband! My lovely husband Kenanah! MO I can’t understand why she is screaming. This is just his head. Mo grabs her and throws her down on her back and mounts her. He licks the side of her face with his tongue as she lays motionless, still in near shock. He begins to hump her in front of all his men. His wife, Aisha, is very sad and leaves the tent. The men begin to chant, not loudly, more like a low rumble. ALL MEN Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar. SAFIA How... How can I sleep with three men within one week. MO I’m different. I’m the Messenger of Allah. I am the Messenger of Mercy. Mo humps Sofia, moving in until it closes on both of their faces. EXT. IN FRONT OF MO’S TENT Mohammed is sitting down in front of his tent door. MARIA, the Egyptian servant, a beautiful young girl, is working, washing clothes while singing. MARIA Egypt... Egypt, I love Egypt. I miss Egypt. I miss Egypt. HAFSAH, a wife of Mo, sits beside him feeding Mohammed fruits. MO Hafsah, this is enough. I have to go back to battle. My men are fighting the Jews. I have to go watch and lead them.
HAFSAH No, it is my night... tonight is my night! A SLAVE enters. SLAVE Hafsah... Hafsah your father is ill. HAFSAH My father? MO (happy to hear) Yes Omar! Hafsah, go now to your father. I will pray and come follow you. Hafsah places her shawl on her head and gives a concerned look at Mo and Maria. HAFSAH Mo, come with me now please? MO Hafsah, I’m the Messenger of Allah. This is time for prayer. I will pray, fast and follow you... go... go don’t delay! Hafsah leaves with the Slave. Mo follows her until she’s gone, then turns to Maria and reaches for her. MO (CONT’D) Maria, you’re so beautiful. Come... come with me! MARIA Okay... Okay wait! God made the worlds in eight days. MO No, God made the world in six days, Quraan said. MARIA No, God made the world in eight days.
MO Okay... Okay, God made the world in eight days. Maria says that. MARIA Sir... Sir. MO Iâ€™m not sir. I am the Messenger of Allah. MARIA What is the meaning of Messenger of Allah? MO (laughing) Messenger of Allah is the person who kills the men and takes the beautiful women. Hahahha! Mo grabs her and takes her inside the tent. INT. MOâ€™S TENT - DAY Mo pushes maria on the bed kissing, touching her. He takes off her clothes and jumps on her... pan to reveal Hafsah arriving back. MARIA You are like Pharoh but Pharoh dies in the Red Sea. MO Pharoh did not die in the red sea. Pharos converted to Islam and God saved him. MARIA No! Pharoh died in the Red Sea... Okay... MO Okay... okay... Pharoh died in the Red Sea, Maria says a... aaaa.... aaah! Maria sees Hafsah. HAFSAH This is how you pray Messenger of Allah? With my servant in my bed and on my night!
MO Please Hafsah... please don’t scream. Aisha can hear you. HAFSAH Are you afraid from Aisha. If she doesn’t hear me tonight, I will let her know of your scandal with my servant. MO No... No, please don’t tell Aisha. I will let your father become the Caliph of the Muslims! Sudden, Ashia arrives. AISHA I am here Mo. Do you need help Hafsah? HAFSAH Thank you Aisha, I can take care of him myself. Hafsah and Aisha slap Mo with thier shoes. AISHA (lauging) More... More... Harder... Harder! HAFSAH On my night and in my bed! On my night in my bed! MO The battle... the battle I’m late! Leave me to go to the battle. Mo runs outside the tent as Hafsah throws her shoes at him. Aisha continues laughing. EXT. DESERT HILLSIDE - DAY In an area of many palm tree, Mo and his followers are about to attack yet another group of Jewish people. Mo inside his tent on a hillside watching the battle below. Only Mo’s head is seen outside the tent.
EXT. OASIS BATTLEFIELD - DAY Below, Mo’s men are killing a lot of Jews, burning their tents and cutting down their palm trees. Bakr fights and kills a man; Ali fights and kills a man; Bilal fights and kills a man; Obi fights and kills a man. EXT. DESERT HILLSIDE - DAY Mo, on the hill, shouting down to his men. Nearby one of his men sits down with another man eating dates. Mo sees them sitting and eating. MO Men, if you die in battle the heavens open for you and you will have all the fruits you desire. The men jump up, take the dates from their mouth and throw them away. THE MEN We will eat this in the Islam’s heaven with the another fruits. They run to the battle field where, by mistake, Ali cuts their neck. MO Poisen their water... Burn their crops... Destroy their houses! VOICE Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar! EXT. DESERT BATTLEFIELD - DAY Two of Mo’s MEN throw TORCHES on to a field full of CROPS. Another MAN is chopping a palm TREE with an AXE. EXT. DESERT HILLSIDE - DAY One of the Jewish women, ESTHER, comes to plead before Mo. We see only his head outside the tent. ESTHER Mo, didn’t you ban the burning of crops and the burning of homes?
MO Yes, but I approve now. ESTHER We can give you half of our crops if you just leave us alone. MO Not enough. ESTHER Do you want all the crops? Take them! My children will die from thirst as your men poison the water. MO So, I want to annihilate all of you worthless trash and take your land, take your women captive and sell your children. ESTHER You do that... and your followers call you Messenger of Mercy? MO Of course I am. I give them the spoils. ESTHER You call yourself Messenger of Allah. What kind of God is this? MO My God take only a fifth of the spoils and my followers take the rest. ESTHER But they could get killed. MO (laughing) They get 72 women in Islamâ€™s heaven. Listen, Esther, you are a beautiful women. Come with me inside the tent. ESTHER Not if you were the last man on earth. She runs off.
EXT. DESERT BATTLEFIELD - DAY Black smoke rising into the sky. Many casualties of men, women and children. Women and children screaming as Mo laughs. EXT. MO’S TENT - DAY Bilal approaches Mo. He is bloodied from the battle but is not hurt. BILAL Messenger of Allah, the battle is over. We have many prisoners, over a thousand men. MO Separate the men and children. BILAL What about the women? MO Put them on the side, I’ll take care of them. But keep the men away. BILAL As you command Messenger of Mercy. MO Bring the men to me first, twenty at a time. BILAL Yes Messenger of Allah. Bilal moves off. EXT. NEAR THE BATTLE FIELD – DAY Standing at the edge of a pit is Mo, SWORD in hand. Bilal shows up with twenty of the Jewish MEN. Mohammed begins to kill them one by one, cutting off their arms, their legs and their heads, tossing the body parts into the pit. He does this to another and another and another. The Jewish women can see this happening, crying and screaming out in anguish as they watch their men die. The Jewish children are also watching this slaughter in utter horror.
Some cover their eyes at the sight, while others watch with their jaws hanging open at what was happening. EXT. VIEW OF THE SUN - DAY View of the hot desert sun as it moves across the sky and is starting to set. EXT. THE BATTLE FIELD - DUSK Mo, now literally drenched in blood from head to toe, beheads one more Jewish MAN. He takes a deep breath and looks down on his work. BILAL (pray call) Allah and Akbar... Allah and Akbar! No God just Allah and his Messenger. Mo Messenger of Allah! MO That is enough for today. He turns and walks away. MO (CONT’D) Come let us pray. The men get together and begin to pray. After a minute or so Mo speaks up. MO (CONT’D) Now bring me the women. All of the men agree heartily. A few of Mo’s men start leading a group of captured Jewish women up to them. Mo notices one of the women in particular, GOURYIA, she is a very beautiful young blonde. He looks at her with “a look” and then he points to her. MO (CONT’D) Come here beautiful. GOURYIA (shouting) Beautiful! Who are you calling beautiful? I have seen you kill my husband, father and my people.
MO I shall marry you and make you a mother of believers. GOURYIA (shouting) Are you insane? You killed my family and now you expect to marry me? Your clothes are still soaked with the blood of my people!!! MO I shall free you from being a slave. You shall be happy for my mercy, because I am the Messenger of Mercy. GOURYIA (shouting) Leave me, you dog of the Arabs, I will not be your wife as long as I live... kill me... kill me! MO This is how you refuse the Messenger of Allah To be your husband? Iâ€™m the Messenger of Mercy. I am the Messenger of Allah. GOURYIA (Shouting) Messenger of Allah? What God is that, Messenger of Mercy? After this holocaust do you really believe anyone will believe your lies?! Mo moves closer to her and speaks in a low deadly tone. MO I do not care what anyone believes. The Messenger of Allah has spoken. Now, I will drink two cups of camel urine for you. He turns and looks to his men and motions to them with his head. Right away four of them grab Gouryia and put her on the ground holding her down spread eagle. Each man holds one of her limbs and Ali gives Mo a cup of camel urine, which he drinks. MO (CONTâ€™D) No one can resist the Messenger of Allah. No one.
Mo gets on top of her. He licks the side of her face with his tongue as she lays there motionless. Still in near shock, she screams and spills it on his face. INT. INSIDE THE ISLAMIC LIBRARY - DAY Dr. Matthew sits down at the table with Youstina. On this table we can see a lot of books on Islamic history and the Messenger of Allah. DR. MATTHEW We just read some of the books from the Islamic library. These books the students study in the universities in the Islamic countries. Remember the formula Usama Ben Laden + “X” = Islamic terrorist. YOUSTINA Now I can tell what is “X” in the formula. DR. MATTHEW I’m sure you can. YOUSTINA Man + Quraan = Islamic terrorist. DR. MATTHEW Exactly. That means the U.S. and the Allies should fight with the ideology... with Mo... with the Quraan... with Islam... not with the Muslim people. YOUSTINA This means Usama Ben Ladin - the Quraan = a good man. DR. MATTHEW Also, we must not give this cancer a chance to grow up in the world. YOUSTINA What do you mean by chance to grow up?
DR. MATTHEW Muslims can build a mosque in any place in the world, but they never grant permission to build even one synagogue or church in Saudi Arabia. It is very hard to build a church or synagogue in any Islamic country. They have big mosques in the Vatican and other places, but no churches or synagogues in Saudi Arabia... why? YOUSTINA But most of the Islamic countries are peaceful with the non-Islamic countries. DR. MATTHEW You’re right, because they are weak... they need help. But if they are strong enough, they shall do like Mohammed did and follow their Quraan. YOUSTINA What does the Quraan say if the Muslims get strong enough? DR. MATTHEW The Quraan says “do not call for peace while you are superior. When you meet those who are not Muslims, strike their necks.” Youstina stands up and goes to the window to catch her breath. YOUSTINA And the non-Muslim countries don’t read these books. DR. MATTHEW Mo was smart when he and his gangs were not strong. They used the peaceful verses. YOUSTINA In the Quraan are white verses and black verses? DR. MATTHEW (smile) Of course, it has all colors. (MORE)
106. DR. MATTHEW (CONT'D) Where Muslims stand depends on what they need. For example, a verse says “Jews and Christians believe in one God.” Muslims can use this when they need help from the Jews or Christians.
YOUSTINA And if they don’t need help? DR. MATTHEW No problem, the same Quraan says “anyone not Muslim goes to hell.” YOUSTINA This doesn’t make sense. DR. MATTHEW (smile) Again, I’m a pharmacist... negative 100 plus 100 still equals Zero. YOUSTINA This means the Quraan is Zero. DR. MATTHEW No, it has sex and terrorism. The Islamic governments, such as in Eqypt, ignore these black verses. The media reports Muslims and Christians living together in peace. On the other side, we see everyday crimes against Christians. YOUSTINA Like what happened in our city EKosh-eh. DR. MATTHEW Also in Nagey Hamedy City a scandal. YOUSTINA Scandal? DR. MATTHEW Yes, the police department gave three inmates weapons and released them to kill the Christians on Christmas day 2010. Eight Christians were killed and ten were injured.
EXT. EGYPTIAN CITY - DAY We see three TERRORISTS in a pickup TRUCK shooting people in front of the church, with blood all over some men on the ground. We hear the screaming of women and children. DR. MATTHEW In another scandal in Elmeia City the terrorists attacked the Monastery and kidnapped two monks. They tortured them to mske them convert to Islam. Two monks tide to trees and some TERRORISTS torturing them. The biggest terrorist walking with a GENERAL and meeting with GOVERNOR DEYA, who shakes hands with the terrorists. DR. MATTHEW(CONTâ€™D) And Mr. Deya, the Elmenia Governor, blesses the terrorist, as well. YOUSTINA This reminds me of what happened in Sanabo City when one of the Islamic terrorists got inside the church and killed eighteen youths between twenty and twenty-four years old. DR. MATTHEW And he left the church shooting in the air in the street, proud of what he did... With the Islamic Egyptian police watching him without a care. EXT. CHURCH - DAY A terrorist getting inside the church and shooting all the youth. We see the blood all over. Finished, he leaves shooting in the air in the street. Two OFFICERS watching with no response. YOUSTINA Shame on you Egyptian police. DR. MATTHEW Not only this. In Cairo, the Islamic Egyptian police went inside a Christian plumberâ€™s apartment and beat him in front of his wife and kids, throwing him from the fourth floor balcony.
INT. APARTMENT BUILDING CAIRO - DAY Police OFFICERS and 4 Egyptian Army LIEUTENANTS outside an apartment door. The men bust open the door, rush inside and beat a Christian MAN, dragging and throwing him from the balcony, his body smashing to the ground, not breathing only bleeding. DR. MATTHEW Also shame on the Egyptian army. YOUSTINA Army? The Christians always fight in the army in all the Egyptian wars. DR. MATTHEW That’s when Israel was in Sinai. After the peace agreement and Israel left Sanai, the Muslims turned against the Christians, even in the army! YOUSTINA This is incredible. DR. MATTHEW This is another scandal. Lieutenant Hany Sarofeem’s superior and some other Lieutenants tortured him until he died. YOUSTINA Why? what did he do? OFFICERS and a few LIEUTENANTS torture a soldier named HANY SAROFEEM, age around 24 years old, until he dies and they throw his body outside the camp. DR. MATTHEW He refused to convert to Islam and change his name from Hany Sarofeem to Mohammed Hany. I wish I could file a list of claims against these terrorists in front of the international criminal court. Remember, before Mo died he tried to fix what he did. But it was too late. YOUSTINA How Daddy?
INT. MO’S TENT BEDROOM - DAY Mo, on his death bed, lying on the floor with his wives and friends; Ali, Omar and Bakr. MO Give me papers and pen to write a new Quraan. ALI New Quraan... what we have then? MO What you have are false verses. I want to give you the right verses. OMAR Let us leave Messenger of Allah. The poison has affected his mind. Leave him alone until he dies. Fade to white: Swords cutting off heads. MO Every non-Muslim is an infidel. His land, his women and his children are our spoils. Plane crashing into towers. BEN LADEN I’m coming to take my spoils using my special plans. Nuclear Bomb explosion. NAGAD (Leader of Iran) I’m coming to take my spoils!
