The good news for Sacha Baron Cohen is that someone's still talking about Brüno despite its measly box-office haul. The bad news: They're terrorists and they probably want to kill him. A few weeks back, Ayman Abu Aita, the guy Baron Cohen identifies in the movie as a "real terrorist" and member of the militant al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigade, announced plans to sue Baron Cohen because, well, he's not really a terrorist or a member of the al-Aqsa Martyrs (oops!). Now, the al-Aqsa Martyrs, known to be responsible for suicide bombings in the West Bank, are upset about Brüno's assertion that "[their] King Osama looks like a kind of dirty wizard or homeless Santa." In a statement to World Net Daily, they say: "We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man." Presumably this does not mean they'll be attacking him from behind with a pair of phalluses.
