On October 14, 2004 Middle East Online reported, "The first animated movie of Prophet Mohammed will finally be screened in North America after being delayed by the September 11 tragedy, which sparked off unprecedented anti-Muslim sentiment, its distributor said Wednesday. 'Mohammed: The Last Prophet,' will premiere in theaters in 37 US and Canadian cities for one week beginning November 14 on Eid Al Fitr, a Muslim holiday marking the end of fasting in the holy month of Ramadan. Oussama Jammal, president of the film's distributing company Fine Media Group, said it was an irony that Americans would be able to watch the US-produced movie after much of the world had already seen it."
