JERUSALEM -- The Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, the terrorist group depicted in the film "Bruno," is "very upset" their group's namesake and former member was featured in a film about a homosexual character that includes graphic depictions of homosexual sex.

The group, as well as individual members, released a statement to World Net Daily's Jerusalem bureau chief Aaron Klein that includes a veiled threat against the movie's star, Sacha Baron Cohen:

"We reserve the right to respond in the way we find suitable against this man [Cohen]," the statement said.

"This movie was part of a conspiracy against the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades," continued the statement, released through a senior member of the group in the West Bank.

"According to what we checked there was no meeting about the real context of the film. This was a dirty use of our brother, Aiman, and we don't accept that the name of the Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades is part of the film."

Aiman is a reference to Ayman Abu Aita, who was interviewed in the movie "Bruno" and labeled as a "terrorist leader" from the Brigades division in the West Bank city of Bethlehem. Aita told Klein yesterday the movie mislabels him and that Cohen conducted the interview under false pretenses. Aita said he is pursuing legal action against Cohen.

Several Al Aqsa Martyrs Brigades leaders responded to the use of their group in the "Bruno" movie.

Jihad Jaara, the infamous exiled chief of the Brigades in Bethlehem, called Cohen "not funny" and said his film was "stupid."

"I'd like to tell Cohen if you like to be funny you are not. You showed the world how stupid is this film," Jaara told WND. "We don't need for him to show us to the world in a homosexual film. That made us very angry at him."

Continued Jaara: "If he wants to make a real film, then come to the Palestinian territories and see how children are dying every day at the hands of the Israeli occupation."

"I heard about this film and I felt very shamed when I heard about it," Jaara added.
