Completely wrong facts, full of quotes and allusions to Ancient Greek writers but also others, he has even copied from himself. The plot is stupid and the style is repetitive. There isn't anything Arabic in there, well, apart from some place names. This play claims to be against fanatism when in fact it just copies anti-Islam stuff from other writers. I know that it is intended to be an allegory to contemporary France but then he shouldn't have picked an existing person. It's like Borat who made Kazakhstan look really bad.
