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 - HolyWars 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, HolyWars shows that even the most radical of believers can be transformed by our changing world. Written by

Did You Know?
Khalid, why do you feel you need to fight for Islam?
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.
