Hezbollah mimics The Passion: TV highlights suffering of Iraqis under US
The Lebanese-based terrorist group Hezbollah is broadcasting on its TV station a 40-second clip simulating the trailer for Mel Gibson's "The Passion of the Christ" that takes aim at the U.S. military presence in Iraq.

The spot reportedly shows Iraqi prisoners' humiliation at the hands of U.S. troops as a parallel to the torture of Jesus Christ at the hands of the Romans and the Jews.

. . .

The clip starts with images of Iraqi suffering, including a U.S. soldier kicking an Iraqi prisoner and a man and woman cowering in terror as troops burst into their home. The words "No Mercy" and "No Compassion" are flashed on the screen.

Then, with the movie's familiar soundtrack in the background, the words 'The Passion of the Iraqis" appear on the left side of the screen next to the photo of a hooded Iraqi prisoner standing on a box with wires attached to his outstretched arms.

1.  "Prisoner standing on the box" one of the eeriest pictures I've ever seen

and it's correlation with "the Passion of The Christ" is even eerier. it's turned us into Herod and the Jews. It's almost if there is a God and he's punishing the Bush misadministration. Myself, I think when they said after 9-11, irony was dead. I think that irony got mad and came back with vengeance.
America has made it's way back into Amsterdam's torture museum after being hammered by the Nazis and Bad Communists. The spirit of the Salem witch trials and lynching is not dead.
