Harry Potter and the Prisoners of Guantanamo

Harry Potter's worldwide popularity is so broad-based that it has become favorite reading for Islamic terror suspects at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay. - Washington Times

Dick Durbin would not be happy with this. Imagine how the prisoner's feelings will be hurt when they read that Hermione dies in the latest book? (just kidding) The more humane thing to do would be to create a radical islamic version of Harry Potter. Here are 6 suggestions to make it more readable for our guests at Guantanamo Bay:

1. Hermione gets kicked out of Hogwarts for wearing a robe that shows ankle
2. Students at Hogwarts are taught how to fly a broom, but not how to land
3. House elves are now called Jews
4. The Daily Prophet's parent company: Al Jazeera
5. Harry's new name: Talib Mustafa Potter
6. Lord Voldemort renamed "George W. Bush"

Got any other ideas to "islamify" Harry Potter? Post a comment below.
