Zan is a Muslim documentary filmmaker who was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Many see Malaysia as a moderate Islamic country that has found a unique and harmonious balance between religion, secularism and multiculturalism. And just like any curious Malaysian Muslim, decides to learn and find out more about Islam and his identity as a Malaysian Muslim. Zan decides to embark on a journey with nothing but his video camera and a bag full of instant noodles to the heartlands of Islam, the Middle-East. He meets a brutal heavy metal band in Iran, discovers a Syrian version of Low Yat Plaza in Damascus, hangs out with a couple of young Palestinian dudes in a camp in Beirut and learns about love and sex from a bunch of artists in Jordan.

hello my bro….can i get a film with tittle “I`M MOSLEM TOO!!!
i`m very2 interesting to get that cd…
please send ur answer to my email or myspace….
dear dear, malaysia since when you become muslim ? 100 years ago ? 200 years ago ? maybe 20 years ago ? or maybe 50 years ago ?
it’s like saying Japanese are christians.
you can not convert the whole country into being muslim, you know the problem is, you really have to be born into this faith not afterwards.
its common believe between muslims. go ask anybody. i never believed malaysia is muslim, i can still remember from long ago. before islam came to your ports. a very long time ago.
malaysia is a buddhist country.
wow! you’re smart! thanks for informing me. i didn’t know all that! hahahaha!! 🙂
and your point is …?
the point is: The bleeping Arabs got to your fore fathers first. Otherwise you will all be Buddists or Hindus today!! Got it????
how come i never knew that Malaysia is a buddhist country! Wow, thanks, that’s so enlightening!
First and foremost, Malaysia only came to be since 16 September 1963 right after the joining of Sabah and Sarawak. Before that we were known as Tanah Melayu and earlier before that – The Malay Archipelago. You mentioned Malaysia not Tanah Melayu or Malay Archipelago. Though there were of course connotations of the name Malaysia being used as early as 1914 when a map in Chicago dated that very year was found. Nonetheless, it was only officiated in 1963 as stated earlier. So, obviously it wasn’t exactly as early as 100 or 200 years as you may have (hopefully in sarcasm) suggested. Secondly, Buddhism and Hinduism era came to halt at the arrival of Islam in the 13th century. So, even if you want to consider the years before Tanah Melayu became Malaysia, Islam had already arrived. Finally, it was not just the Arabs that brought Islam. The Indian traders also spread the religion. Therefore, if you were to remember that far back.. well I guess it just suggests that you’re over 700years old. I wasn’t born in Malaysia neither am I old enough to remember when ‘The Arabs brought Islam to the ports’ though if there was one thing I believe in, it would be history. What is written, happened or else it wouldn’t have been written or officiated.
And p/s to Zan Azlee, kudo’s on the Movie. Its about time people begin to understand something from a different aspect and open minds across the country.
🙂 Appreciate it buddy!
Tolerance becomes a crime when applied to evil. Thomas Mann
Muhammad, founder of Islam and author of Koran, was mentally sick psychopath, could not read and write. While in seizure, he uttered disjointed phrases, which his followers represented as Allah divine afflatus. This is the history of Islam that muslims and “honest and free” western media would not like you to know. These facts show that islam is not a religion, but a cult.
Read: “History of Middle Ages” Professor Nikolay A. Osokin, Textbook (in Russian), Publishing house: Imperial University Printing Office, Kazan, 1888, 771 pp.; Second edition Publisher: ACT, Harvest, Moscow, 2008, 672 pp. (reprint)
Islam is incompatible with Western culture, history, judicial system, and civilization. Remember, our judicial system based on Judeo-Christian values. Islam objects these values and Koran calls for extermination of Christians and Jews. Muslims objective is creation of global Caliphate and establishing Shariah Law. All this eventually leads to civil war, unless we will take care and deport all muslims from US and Europe. Look what is going in Britain, France and other countries where muslims clear declared their primary objective to overcome current social systems and replace them with Sharia law. Read below confessions of leading muslims around the world, including American
and watch the Fitna on:
These facts show that islam is not a religion, but a fascist cult.
Why Muslims Come to the West:
Dr. Ja`far Sheikh Idris in article “Separation Of Church And State”
said: “Secularism cannot be a solution for countries with a Muslim majority or even a sizeable minority, for it requires people to replace their God-given beliefs with an entirely different set of man-made beliefs. Separation of religion and state is not an option for Muslims because is requires us to abandon Allah’s decree for that of a man.”
Omar Ahmad Co-founder of the Council of American-Islamic Relations: “Those who stay in America should be open to society without melting, keeping Mosques open so anyone can come and learn about Islam. If you choose to live here, you have a responsibility to deliver the message of Islam … Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faiths, but to become dominant. The Koran, the Muslim book of
scripture, should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.”
Fatah, a left-wing Canadian Muslim who wants Canada to ban the hijab and burka, writes about Tariq Ramadan as the new face of Islamists.
“Tariq Ramadan reflects the new sophisticated arm of the worldwide Islamist movement, which sees the West as the right place to wage a cultural and intellectual jihad. It preys on Muslim youth who are tired of the old guard; men in beards and long frocks, frothing as they denounce the evil West. The new technique is to undermine the West from within, like parasites and termites, with the host society never
knowing what hit it, until it is too late. UK is one example.”
Algerian leader Houari Boumédienne said at the United Nations in 1974:
“One day, millions of men will leave the Southern Hemisphere to go to the Northern Hemisphere. And they will not go there as friends. Because they will go there to conquer it. And they will conquer it with their sons. The wombs of our women will give us victory.”
Al-Jazeera’s Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradhawi, who is widely hailed as a moderate reformer in the West, said:
“Islam will return to Europe as a conqueror and victor,” and “the conquest this time will not be by the sword but by preaching and ideology.”
A Saudi Sheikh, Muhammad bin Abd Al-Rahman Al-‘Arifi, imam of the mosque of King Fahd Defense Academy, said:
Muslims “will control the land of the Vatican; we will control Rome and introduce Islam in it”
Also read article “Arab-American author outlines secret 20-year strategy to undermine country” by FROM JOSEPH FARAH’S G2 BULLETIN.
Plus, remember, all muslims organizations in US have close ties to global terrorist organizations, like Hamas, Hezbullah, Brotherhood.
The whole world become Islamic countries? In their bleeping dreams!!!!!!
