This summer, a new brand of wartime violence is lighting up Iraq's TVs -- the kind filmed in front of a green screen on a Los Angeles studio lot. According to Newsweek, the L.A. production company 900 Frames and Lebanon's EFXFilms spent over $1 million shooting an anti-suicide bombing PSA aimed at potential attackers.

The ad simulates a busy outdoor market in Iraq before and after a suicide mission, followed by verse 5:32 from the Quran and the slogan "Terrorism has no religion." For a rough translation of 5:32, visit IslamiCity.
