Every year, movie studios are inundated with tens of thousands of college students yearning for a scant few spots as academic interns.
Now, the chance to become an academic intern at Marvel Studios–home to the Spiderman (including the upcoming “Spiderman 3“), The Hulk, X-Men, and Fantastic Four movies–just became impossible for most Americans. . . unless they are Arabs, most likely MUSLIM Arabs, from the United Arab Emirates.
Marvel Studies announced that it will reserve several academic internship spots for Arabs (ie., Muslims) from the United Arab Emirates, in cooperation with the Young Arab Leaders and Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai’s ruler (Dubai is the largest of the 7 Emirates that make up the UAE).
It’s the new affirmative action. Don’t be surprised if you see “Super(Peaceful)Muslim” or “Captain Legitimate Resistance” at a theater (and in comic books) near you.
Remember the days when Superman (not a Marvel property) fought the Nazis? Those days are over. Today, Spiderman and the Hulk are embracing the new Nazis.
Well, no wonder Marvel recently killed off Captain America. Having him around–when you’re trying to pander to the America-hating Islamic world–is a huge liability.
More from the Dubai City Guide:
DUBAI – Young Arab Leaders (YAL) and Marvel Studios have agreed to the first ever Hollywood academic internship alliance, according to Mohammed Khammas, the YAL UAE chapter Vice Chairman.
Marvel Studios, one of the world’s most prominent character-based entertainment companies, has agreed to allow sponsored internship students interested in film studio production, directing, editing, script writing, publishing, animation, marketing and back lot associated careers to work directly under Marvel staff in the full range of industry careers.
Mohammed Khammas stated “The alliance between Young Arab Leaders and Marvel Studios marks the first of its kind in the world. From our end, this partnership is a great honor and testament to our standing in the international community. Through this agreement we will be opening great opportunities for young students and professionals in the Emirates”
“It is our objective to build capacities in a number of industries in the Arab world. The entertainment, movie, publishing and directing careers are the new wave of career interests in our region.”
“H.H Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid’s Al Maktoum vision is to explore all unchartered professional territories and excel in them, and with that vision we are preparing young Arabs to be professionally trained to manage these industries from all its aspects, with this great opportunity provided by Marvel Studios and its visionary chairman David Maisel.”
This Young Arab Leader’s initiative is fully supported by Marvel Studio Chairman, David Maisel and the board at Marvel Entertainment who lead both the studio and publishing empire.
Forget the days when superheroes fought America’s enemies. Today, they embrace our enemies. They recognize that the real victims of 9/11 were not 3,000 Americans who were murdered in cold blood, but millions of the fellow co-religionists of the 19 murderers who want to impose their way of life on us.
Today, Spiderman embraces the UAE, which helped the 19 hijackers perpetrate their mass murder. Despite the fact that many Marvel characters were conceived and created by Jews, today Marvel embraces one of several nations that boycotts the Jewish State and does not allow its citizens into the UAE’s borders.
And–surprise, surprise–Marvel Studios chief, David Maisel–is Jewish. Apparently, he forgot about the UAE’s Zayed Center–a state-run agency founded by the UAE’s late leader Sheikh Zayed–which sponsored speakers and published Nazi propaganda and literature, whose central theme was that Jews and America were behind 9/11.
Hath Maisel no shame? Apparently not.
I’ve already written about Spiderman star Kirsten Dunst bragging of being a pothead. Looks like she’s not the only one at Marvel Studios who’s doing too many drugs.
