Stevens hails the story against everybody, even at Hollywood that financed this relatively boring film as a kind of penitence.

"الجامع الأزهر Al-Azhar Mosque Al-Azhar Mosque is a mosque in Islamic Cairo in Egypt. Al-Mu‘izz li-Dīn Allāh of the Fatimid Caliphate commissioned its construction for the newly established capital city in 970. Its name is usually thought to allude to the Islamic prophet Muhammad's daughter Fatimah, a revered figure in Islam who was given the title az-Zahrā′ ("the shining one"). It was the first mosque established in Cairo, a city that has since gained the nickname "the city "

" Ah, good ol’ intentional provocation-lite. Check out GQ’s play on football superstar Tim Tebow’s good-Christian-boy image and his imminent objectification as a sex symbol.
