An Unmighty Film

An Unmighty Film
By Debbie Schlussel
FrontPageMagazine.com | June 18, 2007

I went to the screening of “A Mighty Heart”– Brad Pitt’s and Angelina Jolie’s movie on the Al-Qaeda murder of Daniel Pearl–expecting a movie with an agenda.

And that is exactly what I got. That, plus a Lifetime Channel damsel-in-distress movie of the week. Muslims are the heroes–NOT the perpetrators-in this “Can’t we all just get along?” kumbaya film ostensibly about terrorism.

As one would expect from the Jolie-Pitts, “A Mighty Heart” is mostly NOT about the Al-Qaeda murder of Daniel Pearl, killed in cold blood specifically because he was a Jew. In fact, the movie minimizes that, instead repeatedly blaming America for its treatment of Guantanamo Bay prisoners as the reason Pearl was cut into the ten pieces like a slaughtered chicken, the state in which his body was found. (That’s no surprise, given that the Jolie-Pitts hired as “A Mighty Heart’s” director, Michael Winterbottom, who also directed the propaganda fake-umentary, ” The Road to Guantanamo.”) In “A Mighty Heart,” we see no depiction at all of Pearl’s captivity or even kidnapping by Qaeda thugs, but for a few re-enactments of tiny parts of the famous Pearl video.

Most shocking, we get an onscreen repeat of the oft-told Muslim myth that 4,000 Jews didn’t show up for work at the World Trade Center on 9/11, because the Jews planned the attacks. The movie provides no refutation of this myth or any indication that it is invalid. (It shouldn’t be shocking, though, given Jolie’s anti-Israel and pro-Palestinian activities.)

And instead of depictions of Daniel Pearl’s treatment at the hand of Muslims, Jolie/Pitt repeatedly hit you over the head with a baseball bat that the hero–not the murderers–in the Daniel Pearl story is a Muslim, a Pakistani Police Captain. We see him admonishing a Qaeda Pearl suspect that he is not “a good Muslim.” The movie also stresses that Pearl’s friend, Asra Nomani, is a feminist Muslim who also is upset and worried for Daniel Pearl. And don’t forget the cheerful, hijab-encrusted full-time, diligent housekeeper and her cute little Muslim baby boy–both of whom we constantly see, in-your-face-style, throughout the movie.

That’s all nice and dandy. But these Muslims wouldn’t be involved, but for the fact that oodles of their fellow co-religionists–the ones who follow the dominant Sunni strain of their religion, Wahhabism–kidnapped and murdered Pearl in the name of their religion, an undisputable fact that is minimized as much as possible in “A Mighty Heart.”

The long, boring, disjointed movie is less about an Al-Qaeda kidnapping and live crude dissection murder of an American Jew, and more a mixture of MTV’s “The Real World” (or CBS’ even worse reality show “Big Brother”) and a Lifetime Network movie of the week. Short on Qaeda info, it is long on scenes of Angelina Jolie, as Mariane Pearl, wandering, brooding, and whining as she roams a cool looking, modern house in what is supposed to be Pakistan.

Mostly, we see her speaking–and whining–in a really, really bad “Saturday Night Live” version of a French accent (that’s in addition to the brief, terrible Israeli accent of the actor playing Judea Pearl, Daniel’s father).

We see Jolie, uh . . . Pearl, roaming around a cool modern house interacting with friends and associates and constantly uttering meaningful, poignant lines, like: “Sh*t, Sh*t, Sh*t;” “Bullsh*t, Bullsh*t, Bullsh*t;” “F*ck, F*ck, F*ck.” Actually, most of the American characters in this film have those obscenity-laced lines, too.

On top of that, we’re treated to dialogue by Mariane’s Muslim friends, like this:

    “What do Americans really know about Afghanistan and Pakistan . . . other than bombing them?”

In addition to blaming America’s ‘Gitmo detention of terrorists’ for Pearl’s murder, the movie also blames the Wall Street Journal for providing the CIA computer files it obtained, giving insight into the operation of shoe bomber Richard Reid, his Al-Qaeda connection, and his scoping out of Israel. By doing that, in Jolie/Pitt/Mariane Pearl’s eyes, the Journal confirmed Qaeda’s assertion that Pearl is a CIA agent.

Any reason, any excuse to grab for Pearl’s inexcusable, horrific murder–other than Muslims hate a Jew and barbaricly kill him for it–and the movie grabs onto it. Even prior to making the movie, last year, Brad Pitt a/k/a Mr. Jolie–producer of this film–lectured us that:

     “We hope the film can increase understanding between people of all faiths and portray the story and the people involved . . . without anger or judgment.”

In other words, don’t judge the Muslims. Don’t judge the people who barbaricly killed Pearl because he was a Jew. Don’t even think that’s why they killed him. Understand the murderers. Understand that it’s not right for us to keep murderous terrorists in detention with three gourmet halal meals a day and every religious article they’d ever want. Understand that the Wall Street Journal should never help the CIA with intelligence to counter terrorists.

And those are the messages of this movie. That’s why, instead of scenes of Muslims beating, interrogating, torturing, beheading, and dissecting Daniel Pearl, we see Muslim Asra Nomani crying and anguishing over Danny. We see Muslim police officers very concerned about Pearl. Mariane tells us of the beauty of Muslim Eid Al-Adha sacrifices of lambs. We see a scene of Mariane, a French Afro-Cuban/Dutch Buddhist, bowing down to the ground meditating. Then, it shows Muslims also bowing down to the ground praying to Allah. Forget the butchering Muslim murderers. We are all the same. We all care. We all pray in a similar manner. That’s the message of this movie.

And then there are the even sillier parts of this movie. Woven in with the earnest, concerned Muslim detectives and police officers, we see caricatures of the Americans, which are such comedic parodies, you wonder how they made it into what is supposed to be a serious movie about an execution of an American Jew. They appear stolen from the editorial cartoons of Islamist newspapers in Egypt and Saudi Arabia and propaganda dramas on Hezbollah’s Al-Manar.

We see a useless lesbian FBI agent who does nothing but sound and appear officious in a Rosie O’Donnell know-it-all way. No, the movie doesn’t say she’s a lesbian, but trust me, they picked the most butch-looking actress possible. Clearly, she plays for the other team.

Then, there’s Randall Bennett, a mysterious “security official” from the U.S. Embassy in Karachi. Played by Will Patton, who often plays criminals, bad guys, and bizarros, the CIA-esque Bennett constantly wears sunglasses indoors and gushes and drools over Pakistani torture of suspects.

And don’t forget Wall Street Journal reporter Steve Levine, played by Gary Wilmes, the most stereotypically Jewish-looking actor they could cast–a living embodiment of the angst-ridden, sweaty big-nosed, glasses-wearing Jew you’d find in “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” picture book for kids.

Yup, that’s how the Muslim world–and Pitt and Jolie–see America: bizarre, drooling torturers in sunglasses, lesbian FBI agents, and big-nosed, bespectacled Jews who dominate the media.

So much for Pitt’s exhorting us to be “understanding” and “without judgment.”

At the end of the movie, we are told in Jolie/Mariane’s voice that:

    “Ten Pakistanis were killed this month by terrorists. They [Pakistanis and Muslims] are suffering as much as we are.”

Are they really? How many of the Americans were killed because they were from rival terrorist groups? How many Pakistanis were blown to smithereens because they were on airplanes or in the two tall towers they flew into?

The problem with the film is that the Jolie-Pitts do have judgment–against us and not the terrorists or their Islam–and that they have very selective understanding–lenience only for those, ie., Muslims, who hate Jews and hate Americans, looking for that tiny fringe of moderation that’s barely on the far, outer margin.

In the many print and broadcast interviews in the mounting PR campaign for this summer movie, Jolie tells the press that

   ” Mariane is a person who has every right to be full of hate, and yet she’s completely the opposite. She wants to have a dialogue.”

And there are Jolie’s and Pitt’s lectures that the hero of this movie is a Muslim Pakistani Captain . . . . Muslim, Christian, Buddhist, Jewish–they all came together, all of them becoming great friends.

The problem is not with whether or not Mariane Pearl hates those who butchered her husband to death or whether those who helped investigate it were a tiny number of Muslim friends and police who don’t represent the dominant anti-Semitic, pan-terrorist thought on the Muslim street.

The problem is that those who butchered her husband were dominated by hate and that they are Muslim. And a propaganda film whitewashing that by a beautiful actress and her metrosexual boyfriend won’t make them hate us any less or make Islam any less extremist.

Until we face those facts, there will be many more Daniel Pearls. Onscreen Valentines to terrorists and their hateful religion, a la “A Mighty Heart,” only enable their murderers.

If your heart is so big that your head is buried in the sand, it’s not “A Mighty Heart.” It’s a weak heart, soon to be in cardiac arrest.

Has a limit been reached?

Many elites in the United States and Europe continue to behave as pre-emptive Dhimmis, submitting to demands for the application of Shari’a law in their countries. Think of the Metropolitan Airports Commission in Minneapolis-St. Paul, at first planning a system of taxi signals, so that Muslim drivers could indicate to travelers their unwillingness to carry alcohol-bearing passengers. Or, of the judge in Germany who recently cited the Koran on wife-beating in an effort at cultural sensitivity in divorce case.  Or of Target Stores, which at first allowed its Muslim checkout clerks to refuse to scan pork products.

But in each case, outraged ordinary citizens (including some moderate Muslims)  forced a retreat. The German case is covered today by the AP via Newsday:

Politicians and Muslim leaders denounced a German judge for citing the Quran in her rejection of a Muslim woman’s request for a quick divorce on grounds she was abused by her husband.

Judge Christa Datz-Winter said in a recommendation earlier this year that both partners came from a “Moroccan cultural environment in which it is not uncommon for a man to exert a right of corporal punishment over his wife,” according to the court. The woman is a German of Moroccan descent married to a Moroccan citizen. [….]
Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries condemned the judge’s decision.

“Every so often, there are individual rulings that seem completely incomprehensible,” she said.

Lawmakers from Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democrats said traditional Islamic law, or Sharia, had no place in Germany.

“The legal and moral concepts of Sharia have nothing to do with German jurisprudence,” Wolfgang Bosbach, a lawmaker with the Christian Democrats, told N24 television.

“One thing must be clear: In Germany, only German law applies. Period.”

Ronald Pofalla, the party’s general secretary, told Bild: “When the Quran is put above the German constitution, I can only say: Good night, Germany.”

Representatives of Germany’s Muslim population were also critical of the ruling.

“Violence and abuse of people — whether against men or women — are, of course, naturally reasons to warrant a divorce in Islam as well,” the country’s Central Council of Muslims said in a statement.

It appears that elites are all too ready to betray their own cultures, and must be kept in check by ordinary folk applying common sense.

Next Attack Imminent: Muslims ordered to leave the United States —- BREAKING NEWS —-Not confirmed

Exclusive to Canada Free Press and Northeast Intelligence

Next Attack Imminent:
Muslims ordered to leave the United States

By Paul L. Williams& David DastychSaturday, September 16, 2006 Urgent news from Abu Dawood, the newly appointed commander of the al Qaeda forces in Afghanistan:Final preparations have been made for the American Hiroshima, a major attack on the U. S.Muslims living in the United States should leave the country without further warning.The attack will be commandeered by Adnan el Shukrijumah (“Jaffer Tayyer” or “Jafer the Pilot”), a naturalized American citizen, who was raised in Brooklyn and educated in southern Florida.The al Qaeda operatives who will launch this attack are awaiting final orders. They remain in place in cities throughout the country. Many are masquerading as Christians and have adopted Christian names.Al Qaeda and the Taliban will also launch a major strike (known as the “Badar offensive” against the coalition forces in Afghanistan during the holy month of Ramadan.The American people will be treated to a final audio message from Osama bin Laden which will be aired within the next two weeks.The announcements from Abu Dawood were obtained by Hamid Mir, the only journalist to interview Osama bin Laden, Ayman al-Zawahiri, and Taliban leader Mullah Omar in the wake of 9/11. Mir earlier reports regarding the resurgence of the Taliban with support from Iran and an unofficial truce between President Pervez Musharraf and al Qaeda have been panned out by the press in recent months.Mr. Mir interviewed Dawood on September 12 at the tomb of Sultan Mehmud Ghaznawi on the outskirts of Kabul. Dawood and the al Qaeda leaders who accompanied him were clean-shaven and dressed as Western reporters. The al Qaeda commandeer had contacted Mir by cell-phone to arrange the meeting. The contents of the encounter are as follows:Q: How did you have my local mobile number?A: We watched you on Geo TV walking in the mountains near Kabul with British troops. You were embedded with our enemies. We were sure that you are staying in one of the few hotels or guest houses in Kabul. We were looking for you in Serena and Intercontinental hotels, but then some Taliban friends informed us that they had your phone number and you might visit them in Zabul [an Afghani province]. We got your number from Commander [Muhsen] Khayber. [Khayber was responsible for a homicide bombing in Casablanca that killed 32 people]. Don’t worry about that. We will not make any harm to you. We just want to warn you that you better don’t take any rides in the tanks and humvis of the Western Forces; they are not safe for any journalist in Afghanistan.Q: Thanks for your concern; can I know your name?A: Yes my name is Abu Dawood, if you remember, we have already met in Kunar two years ago, but at that time I had a long beard, now I have a small one. You were there in the mountains, close to Asadaabad [a small village in the Kunar province of eastern Afghanistan] and you met some Al Qaeda fighters. I was among them.Q: OK. I just want to say that I am a journalist, I have to speak to both sides of a conflict, for getting an objective view and that is why I was traveling with the British troops; now I am sitting with you and that is my real job. I have interviewed Osama bin Laden as well as Condoleezza Rice, General Pervez Musharraf and President Hamid Karzai of Afghanistan. I hope you will appreciate my objective approach?A: You have claimed to be objective, but you and your TV channel have always given much time to the propaganda of our enemies. Anyhow, it was our moral responsibility to warn you that you better try to avoid traveling with the British, American, Canadian, French, Spanish and Italian troops in Afghanistan, we will target all of them, we don’t want that people like you suffer by our attacks, it is not good for you, and at least you should not be killed with the enemies of Islam. I am sure, brother Khayber have informed you that the Taliban will launch a big operation against the Crusader Forces, in the holy month of Ramadan; don’t come to Afghanistan in Ramadan. You will see a lot of fadaee amalyat [“suicide bombings”] in coming days, Kabul will become a graveyard of NATO and ISAF.Q: Yes Khayber told me about the “Badar operation” in Ramadan. I think you are an Afghani but you are not a Talib, are you a member of Al Qaeda?A: You are right. But we are with the Taliban, just helping them, fighting under their command. Every Al Qaeda fighter can become a Talib, but every Talib cannot become Al Qaeda.Q: So where is Sheikh Osama bin Laden?A: I don’t know exactly, but he is still in command of Al Qaeda, and he is in contact with his Mujaheddin all over the world.Q: Why there was no new video statement from him, in last two years?A: Because the CIA can feed his fresh picture to the computers fitted on their Predator planes, and these planes can get him, like Nek Muhammad or Akbar Bugti. But he has released many audio messages this year. Listen to him carefully. Don’t underestimate his warnings. America is playing with the security of Muslims all over the world, now it is our turn again. Our brothers are ready to attack inside America. We will breach their security again. There is no timeframe for our attack inside America; we can do it any time.Q: What do you mean by another attack in America?A: Yes a bigger attack than September 11th 2001. Brother Adnan [el Shukrijumah] will lead that attack, Inshallah.Q:Who is Adnan?A: He is our old friend. The last time, I met him in early 2004, in Khost. He came to Khost from the North Waziristan. He met his leaders and friends in Khost. He is very well known in Al Qaeda. He is an American and a friend of Muhammad Atta, who led 9/11 attacks five years ago. We call him “Jaffer al Tayyar” [“Jafer the Pilot”]; he is very brave and intelligent. Bush is aware that brother Adnan has smuggled deadly materials inside America from the Mexican border. Bush is silent about him, because he doesn’t want to panic his people. Sheikh Osama bin Laden has completed his cycle of warnings. You know, he is man of his words, he is not a politician; he always does what he says. If he said it many times that Americans will see new attacks, they will definitely see new attacks. He is a real Mujahid. Americans will not win this war, which they have started against Muslims. Americans are the biggest supporters of the biggest terrorist in the world, which is Israel. You have witnessed the brutality of the Israelis in the recent 34-day war against Lebanese civilians. 9/11 was a revenge of Palestinian children, killed by the US-made weapons, supplied to Israel. The next attack on America would be a revenge of Lebanese children killed by US-made cluster bombs. Bush and Blair are the Crusaders, and Muslim leaders, like Musharraf and [Afghani President Hamid] Karzai are their collaborators, we will teach a lesson to all of them. We are also not happy with some religious parties in Pakistan and Egypt, they got votes in the name of Mujaheddin, and then, they collaborated with Musharraf and [Egyptian President] Hosni Mubarak. Now look at all of them, Musharraf and Karzai don’t trust each other, the CIA and ISI don’t trust each other, all the hypocrites and enemies of Mujaheddin are suspecting each other; this help to us is coming from Heavens. Allah is with us.Q: But if you attack inside America again, then Muslims living in America will face lot of problems, why would you like to create new problems for your brothers and sisters?A: Muslims should leave America. We cannot stop our attack just because of the American Muslims; they must realize that American forces are killing innocent Muslims in Afghanistan and Iraq; we have the right to respond back, in the same manner, in the enemy’s homeland. The American Muslims are like a human shield for our enemy; they must leave New York and Washington.Q: But your fighters are also using the American Muslims as their shield, if there are no Muslims in America, then there would be no Al Qaeda, may be the Americans would feel safer?A: No, not at all. We have a different plan for the next attack. You will see. Americans will hardly find out any Muslim names, after the next attack. Most of our brothers are living in Western countries, with Jewish and Christian names, with passports of Western countries. This time, someone with the name of Muhammad Atta will not attack inside America, it would be some David, Richard or Peter.Q: So you will not attack America, until Muslims are there?A: I am not saying that, I am saying that Muslims must leave America, but we can attack America anytime. Our cycle of warnings has been completed, now we have fresh edicts from some prominent Muslim scholars to destroy our enemy, this is our defending of Jihad; the enemy has entered in our homes and we have the right to enter in their homes, they are killing us, we will kill them.Long time investigative journalist, Paul L.

Israeli-US plot behind pope’s remarks: Iran hardline press

Israeli-US plot behind pope’s remarks: Iran hardline press

Well, we should have known all along: the Zionists are behind Pope Benedict’s remarks! Of course! From AFP, with thanks to the Constantinopolitan Irredentist:

Iranian hardline newspapers said there were signs of an Israeli-US plot behind remarks by Pope Benedict XVI that linked Islam to violence and created a wave of anger across the Muslim world.The daily Jomhuri Islami said Israel and the United States — the Islamic republic’s two arch-enemies — could have dictated the comments to distract attention from the resistance of the Shiite militant group Hezbollah to Israel’s offensive on Lebanon.

“The reality is that if we do not consider Pope Benedict XVI to be ignorant of Islam, then his remarks against Islam are a dictat that the Zionists and the Americans have written (for him) and have submitted to him.”

“The American and the Zionist aim is to undermine the glorious triumph of Islam’s children of Lebanese Hezbollah, which annulled the undefeatable legend of the Israeli army and foiled the Satanic and colonialist American plot,” it said.

Venezuela: Hugo Chavez Spreads 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

September 13, 2006

Venezuela: Hugo Chavez Spreads 9/11 Conspiracy Theory

If the Muslim dream of a world-wide Caliphate comes to pass, the “self-aggression hypothesis”, as Prensa Latina calls it, will become part of its official history and a cruel, mad tyrant like Hugo Chavez will be hailed as a courageous visionary: Chavez Comments on 9/11 Theories

Caracas, Sep 12 (Prensa Latina) Along with an increasing number of people in the world and in the US, Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez expressed doubts Tuesday about whether the NY Twin Towers fell because of the impact of planes piloted by terrorists.

It doesn’t matter whether more people are believing this nuttery; doubt coming from self-deception speaks badly of the doubter.

Recalling the self-aggression hypothesis [termed conspiracy theory in the US], he commented that the hypothesis gaining strength is that the imperial power planned and directed that horrible attack against its own people and others to justify the aggressions against Afghanistan, Iraq, and against Venezuela.

Prensa Latina is Cuba’s “News Agency”, e.i., the propaganda mouthpiece of the Cuban regime. I believe the parenthetical was inserted by an editor, because the writer didn’t have the nerve to acknowledge the “U.S.” calls the “hypothesis” a conspiracy theory without authorization from above.

In his speech at a ceremony on the date of the fifth anniversary of the Women’s Development Bank (Banmujer), the dignitary pointed out that it is impossible for a steel mass built to resist earthquakes and the impacts of planes to fall so quickly and easily.

Other publications, such as, heck, the AP release, claim Chavez wasn’t endorsing the theory. But in this paragraph he pretty much does so. It is a sad commentary on the state of the Press that when it comes to certain stories, you can get better information from a Communist mouthpiece.

Noting that architects taking part in the construction of the towers and explosive experts endorse the self-attack hypothesis, the president said it is not ridiculous to think of the placing of explosive charges.

A reference would be nice, but no, repeating the lie is a far more effective propaganda technique.

That hypothesis, he added, was strengthened by reports noting that a few hours after the attack a US plane took relatives of Osama Bin Laden, assumed mastermind of the horrific act, out of US territory.

This is a problem of interpretation; the U.S. hauled away the bin Laden family out of fear there would be retaliatory attacks against them. It is to the everlasting shame of our government that it put the safety of the family over the safety of our people.

The truth is that the entire world is threatened by that obscene, immoral and murderous empire, he stressed.

You would think he was talking about his dictatorship, but sadly no: there is no way Venezuela can be regarded as an empire, not even using the twisted definition Chavez is using.
