    Lets see, he goes around, robbing those who have helped him, blows up country owned ships, recruits rival factions to take on established militarys, robs from his own, NEVER gets laid in any of the movies......

    Yeah Jack Sparrow is a terrorist....

    Of course, so was Columbus and Robin Hood.

    I`m gonna go ahead and say the point is that people have ideas in their head about what is and what is not a Muslim and that most people didn`t think of terrorists when they were watching Johhny prance around on screen. Stereotypes, yo.

    Technically it`s the symbol of the Ottoman Empire, not the "Symbol of Islam". The Crescent wasn`t even adopted until much later (I was going to say 14th century, but Wikipedia doesn`t distinguish between the 12th Century adoption by the Turks and any later adoption by Muslims).

    Despite what Jack T Chick might have to say on the topic.

    In other news... WE HAVE A LIKABLE PROTAGONIST IN A HOLLYWOOD MOVIE?!

    Okay, look, I`m just going to say it, the *real* Jack Sparrow also warned the British, uh, with bells and guns and stuff, that they weren`t going to take our freedom or our arms or our good ol` American Christianity. Danged dirty gay Muslim pirate bastards!

    Incidentally:
    1) Muslims aren`t known for wearing Turbans any more than Americans are known for their kilts. This is a "ghitra" and that`s Arab, not Muslim.

    2) He wasn`t wearing a Turban anyway, it was a bandana.

    thats the point... saying muslims are known for their turbans is like saying americans are known for their kilts. which, as you somewhat obnoxiously pointed out, is not something americans are known for.

    So what, He`s a pirate, a fictional one at that ?

    A lot of 16th century pirates were muslims, no secret there. Johnny Depp certainly didn`t portray Capt`n Jack Sparrow as following any specific religion, at all, in he 4 movies.

    The concept and number zero was invented by a Muslim scholar. Since all `real` Americans hate Muslims, please open your wallets or pocketbooks, find any money with zero`s on it, and send them to me

    so you can be safe at night from the evil influence of the Muslim zero. It is for your protection. Really.

    Remember, the more zero`s, the Muslim your money, or paycheck is, so send it all to me so you can be safe.

    don`t delay, operators are standing by to help you get safe from the dangerous zero`s on your money.

    Drinking and stealing is not acceptable in either Christianity or Islam. He might have converted so he could hide among the muslims. Or maybe England said he converted so he would be more hated than if he was a man of no cross.

    I don`t know who started this fable/myth, but it`s not true. None of the character traits match up, and neither does the accoutrement/attire/clothing.

    Black Bart was a vicious pirate, killing and looting. Sparrow isn`t a killer. Sparrow is purely based on being "the good pirate" so that children can emulate him without turning to violence. That should easily bust everything about his personality being based on Black Bart, as they are two completely different people.

    Google Black Bart Pirate, he wears Victorian clothing. Now google Jack Sparrow, feel dumb.

    Black Bart was actually whom they named "The Dread Pirate Roberts" after in The Princess Bride. But as far as PotC, nope.
