I used to like actor Liam Neeson, especially after he played a father rescuing his daughter from a Muslim sex slavery ring in “Taken” (read my review). But I always warned that his mother-in-law is anti-Semitic, pro-Islamic terrorist, friend-of-Arafat, Qaeda-concubine, Vanessa Redgrave. And clearly her propaganda has finally seeped in and poisoned Neeson’s mind.
On Friday (tomorrow), the latest installment of “The Chronicles of Narnia” movies comes out in theaters (my review will be posted on this site, then). And Neeson–as he has in the previous two Narnia movies–provides the voice for Aslan, the lion in the movie. Anyone who knows Narnia author C.S. Lewis’ Christian orientation, knows that the Narnia books are supposed to be metaphors for the stories of the Christian faith and the New Testament stories. Although I am not Christian and don’t believe in Christ, it’s clear that Lewis meant the lion, Aslan, to symbolize Christ. Aslan is willingly slaughtered to death in the first movie as an allegory for the crucifixion.
But that didn’t stop Liam Neeson from engaging in the traditional Redgrave family delusions and claiming the lion symbolizes Mohammed. Here’s his nonsense:
Aslan symbolises a Christ-like figure but he also symbolises for me Mohammed, Buddha and all the great spiritual leaders and prophets over the centuries.
That’s who Aslan stands for as well as a mentor figure for kids – that’s what he means for me. . . .
Walter Hooper, Lewis’ former secretary and a trustee of his estate, said the author would have been outraged.
“It is nothing whatever to do with Islam,” he said.
“Lewis would have simply denied that. He wrote that the ‘whole Narnian story is about Christ.’ Lewis could not have been clearer.”
He attributed Neeson’s remarks to political correctness and a desire to be “very multicultural,” adding: “I don’t know Liam Neeson or what he is thinking about… but it was not Lewis’ intention.”
It’s doubly absurd, especially when you consider that Aslan discourages children from wrongdoing, and allah and his Mohammed do the exact opposite as we see all over the Islamic world, where kids are encouraged to hate Jews and Christians and kill them in the name of Mohammed and allah.
And it’s even more silly when you consider that Lewis didn’t really like Muslims too much. For good reason, because he knew what they were about. In the new movie, people who kidnap Narnian subjects for slavery look and are dressed like Arabs. It’s so apropos.
What a shame that this guy got to play Oskar Schindler, who rescued Jews from their deaths at the hands of the Nazis. Now, Neeson is playing real life propagandist for the modern-day Nazis of Islam.
One of my long-time friends from college, Brad Turner, was Liam Neeson’s stunt double in “The A-Team” (read my review). I should ask him if he stunt-doubled Neeson’s dangerous pandering to Islam.
You could get a lot of injuries from that. And, often, it’s fatal.
