‘A Mighty Heart' Gives
A Free Pass To Terror

by Youssef Ibrahim - June 25, 2007 - The New York Sun

I am not one to believe American movies must be propaganda, for that indeed would doom them. As an avid fan of cinema, like billions of other people around the world, I believe they should simply be good and, in the face of such an obvious evil, be there.

My strongest reservation in "A Mighty Heart" is the absurd political correctness that permeates the film; its writers, producers, and directors do not even mention fanatical Islam to avoid offering offense.

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing." - Edmund Burke

Two quotes . . . one from an article about current events and one a famous quote that has been repeated again and again. The two are inescapably entertwined. Daniel Pearl's death was an example of the Islamofascist (fanatical Islam) movement's willingness to kill anyone who was not a subservient follower. Not just kill. Kill in the gruesome manner of beheading the victim alive! Yet the movie actress Angelie Jolie, a socialism advocate, whitewashes this event and removes any mention of the evil of Islamofascism from her movie. You don't have to wonder why.

Her motivation is total opposition to anything American that supports free enterprise or patriotism. This commitment to opposing America in favor of ending free enterprise (in support of the failed and evil concept socialism) is like a pavlovian reaction among socialists. So too is their willingness to attack anyone who questions their motivations and label them with insults. Usually this includes calling them Nazis or Fascists (a set of insults I find amusing since both of these political ideologies were socialist!).

Throughout the world the popularity of this actress will allow this movie to blur the evil practiced by the Islamofascist movement. How can that do anything to assure that the Western World maintains the will to fight this war for our existence?
