We are on the Front Page of Al-Arabiya TV-The Digital Jihad has Begun

Through the night, responses on Al-Arabiya have steadily increased with more than 230 comments right now, a more nuanced view emerging and this is one of the most highly commented stories on that site right now (other than Qaddafi's claims of all Arabs being Shia!)-we need you to go in large numbers to the website and post your comments as well.

We are on the front page of Al-Arabiya TV and more than 140 readers have responded in a matter of a few hours. The majority of the comments as expected, are not positive. As I always knew, the film will have a polarizing influence but in the long run and also immediately (as we are seeing with many audiences)-it will benefit large communities of Muslims. I continue this 'Jihad' with the intention of making sure that those who respond (on Al-Arabiya and elsewhere) will form informed opinions based on their experience of seeing the film.

We are monitoring the response on the Al-Arabiya website and urge all of you to log in and comment as well.

Abderrahman, who identifies himself as a 'gay man' from Saudi Arabia writes (in response to the mostly negative comments on the website)- "You are all backward and foolish".
