Satan, President Obama, and the History Channel

Have you been watching The History Channel series The Bible? The series creators have found themselves at the center of a controversy surrounding their use of Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni to portray Satan. Ouazanni, a Moroccan actor who has often portrayed satanic characters, bears a striking resemblance to President Barack Obama.

Roma Downey and Mark Burnett have denied any kind of insinuations, saying:

Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. “False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.

What do you think was this intentional, or coincidental?
