New Noah Film Banned in Several Middle Eastern Nations, Conservatives React

The Biblical epic Noah, a new film by director Darren Aronofsky, has been banned in a number of Middle Eastern nations: Qatar, Bahrain, and the United Arab Emirates. Censorship boards in all three nations told Paramount they will not release the film because goes against Islamic law with its portrayal of religious prophets.

In addition to those countries rallying behind censorship, Egypt’s top Islamic body has called for the film to be banned in Egypt as well.

Fox News’ The Five took on the issue Friday, with Eric Bolling slamming “Muslims who seem to have intolerance for everything except their way of thinking.” Bob Beckel referenced his own issues with the Islamic faith when he said, “Have I gotten myself my fatwa yet? Fatwa this!”

Greg Gutfeld mockingly suggested Muslims release a book telling everyone exactly what is offensive to the Islamic faith, since it feels like everything is, while Andrea Tantaros called Islam “the most intolerant religion in the world.”
