The Prophet's Grandson Gets An Animated Feature

I bring this up because a) it's interesting and b)it might help shine a little light on a dark and violent world...

A Beirut-based production company has produced ARD AL-TAFF, a 3D animated film chronicling the story of the death of the Prophet Mohammad's grandson, Imam Hussein, whose fall during the battle of Kerbala in Iraq in AD 680 is a key historical point for Shi'ite Muslims, according to REUTERS.

What's interesting about this to me is, Islamic animated films aren't new. A few years ago, one of the smaller signator studios here in L.A. did a series of Islamic animated videos.

There's a big market out there. It's smart that some corporate entity is tapping it.
