Denmark: Jewish community concerned about terrorist movie

The Jewish community is concerned about a planned film about the terrorist who attacked the synagogue in Copenhagen.  They fear that the movie will encourage understanding for the killer's motives. 

Via the Local:
Danish film company Zentropa will make a movie about the life of Omar El-Hussein, the 22-year-old Dane of Palestinian origin who killed two men in a Copenhagen terror attack on February 14-15.


 The film, entitled ‘Lukkede øjne’ (Closed Eyes), will “tell the story of Omar El-Hussein and what happened with him before, during and after his actions” according to a press release from the company.

Zentropa said that the film will be fiction rather than a documentary on El-Hussein, but will use his life to describe how a young man born and raised in Denmark could become radicalized.
