Where do Western media come up with this nonsense? No one ever refers to this clerical kook as "the Brad Pitt of Muslim clerics"?

Dubbed the "Brad Pitt" of Muslims clerics, Mohamed Al-Arifi is a leading religious figure in Saudi Arabia and the Muslim world who is known for his charismatic personality."  They really make things up sometimes in Western media dispatches.   As Basim wrote to me about this: "I challenge you to tell me who ever called him this - other than the BBC". (thanks Basim)
