Insha’Allah [If It’s the Will of Allah]: Video of the Day

This one is just over 5 minutes long, but a great video. The pay-off is at the very end, so you must watch the whole thing. Thanks to reader Ari and Hot Air for the tip. The video director, Michael Shepard, calls the short “Jihad,” but I’d call it, “Insha’Allah,” Arabic for “If it’s the Will of Allah” (or god-willing). If I picked the Oscars, this one would have been my pick for Best Live Action Short, instead of the absurd “” (which, after viewing, I found to be worse than I’d earlier diagnosed):

I love it! It’s almost like a jihadi version of Curb Your Enthusiasm.
