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.

a good but in complete snapshot of religious Dogma
3 March 2012 | by See all my reviews

A thought provoking documentary by Stephen Marshall but what was promised as a good debate between a conservative Christian evangelist and jihad advocating Muslim ended up as being one sided affair as Aaron the missionary didn't have any answers to the questions and challenges put to him by Khalid the Irish Muslim convert. This may have been due to Aaron's age, inexperience or lack of knowledge about world out side his New Mexico. Khalid on the other hand came across as a much more world aware and prepared advocate for his hard lined Muslim belief, even though he didn't find acceptance from his Pakistani brothers. In the end we get a glimpse of how a well educated doctor can turn into a militant when he cant find the answers he seeks from the people he believes in. And Al Qaeda is there waiting with open arms.
