Humour is the English (and I mean English, not British) weapon of choice when faced with a threat against which we cannot either effectively retaliate or defend ourselves, and I'm surprised it's taken us this long since 7/7 to produce a comedy film about exploding Jihadists.
Chris Morris' 'Four Lions' premiered at the Sundance Festival over the weekend, and the Guardian publishes a clip here well worth watching. It can't be too soon before it's rolled out on Network TV.
And let's have more exploding Jihadist comedy. Let's have a series penned by Armando Iannucci, a Christmas Special from Marks and Gran, a film from Sasha Cohen; let the airwaves be filled with Bowel Bombers and twots setting their testicles on fire, with blind and fingerless Jihadists whose competence at handling explosives matches their theological nous.
I'll bet Four Lions will change the way we view Jihadists and make Geert Wilders look like one of those 1950s nuclear danger films; when we chuckle at the sight of a bearded and capped Muslim, we'll have won. Whatever they do.
