* FakeNationality: Maybe subverted into an ActorAllusion, as Samir Nazhde is played by French ([[OohMeAccentsSlipping you can hear it]]) of Tunisian descent Sami Bouajila, and even though he is Palestinian, Haddad suggests to deport him to Tunis (although there are Palestinians all over the Arab world now).
* LifeImitatesArt: Three years after the movie came out, the U.S. suffered its worst terrorist attack in its history, with many parallels to the film.
