Storyline

Take one Muslim advocate for global jihad and put him in a room with one conservative Christian on a mission to evangelize the world's Muslims. Which man will be left standing? Touching down in four hotbeds of religious fundamentalism - Pakistan, Lebanon, UK, and heartland America - "Holy Wars" goes behind the scenes of the 1400 year old conflict between Islam and Christianity. The film follows a danger-seeking Christian missionary and a radical Muslim Irish convert, both of whom believe in an apocalyptic battle, after which their religion will ultimately rule the world. Tracking their lives from the onset of the "War on Terror" to the election of Barack Obama, "Holy Wars" shows that even the most radical of believers can be transformed by our changing world.

Quotes

Stephen Marshall: Khalid, why do you feel you need to fight for Islam?
Khalid Kelly: I guess like some of the other people around the world, I like standing up for what's right. For example, you would see something happening as a child, like someone being beaten up by the schoolyard bully, I challenge anybody to say that a person wouldn't stand up for the weaker child against the stronger kid. So many people do that, you know? And I guess that when I embraced Islam, that's what I found: that it's justice for everybody.

Brilliantly Provocative for all the right reasons
23 August 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is one of the best documentaries that i have ever seen. After the film the cinema was buzzing with dispute and everyone had a different take. In this age where Fundamentalism, of all creeds, could literally destroy the world ( when W.OM.D become more freely accessible ). This film examines the pathology of fundamentalism and inadvertently gives us hope. You think you know the outcome but the whole thing unexpectedly twists. In turns it is distressing and very funny. Ridgidly closed minds cannot help but be so. God bless you Mr Marshall for sticking at it for 5 years and creating such an important and pertinent piece of filmmaking. You walk a fine tightrope. Everyone should see this film. Ideally it should be followed by an open debate as it sure as hell stirs up one.
