Kingdom of Heaven Bowdlerized?

Someone is claiming insider information that the new Ridley Scott movie Kingdom of Heaven has been heavily edited to make Christian Crusaders the bad guys and Muslims the good guys, under pressure from Muslim groups including death threats.

Now after all the disinformation that preceded the release of Passion of the Christ I'm hesitant to believe this before seeing the movie. In fact, as great as Gladiator was I hope that the claims are false. (Hat tip: Little Green Footballs.)
