Let the car-torching by German ‘youths’ begin!
Americans and Jews villains in blockbuster

BERLIN -- A virulently anti-Semitic film about the Iraq war has provoked a storm of protest in Germany after it sold out to cheering audiences from the country's 2.5-million-strong Turkish community within days of being released.

"Valley of the Wolves," by the Turkish director Serdan Akar, shows crazed American GIs massacring innocent guests at a wedding party and scenes in which a Jewish surgeon removes organs from Iraqi prisoners in a style reminiscent of the Nazi death-camp doctor Josef Mengele.

Bavaria's interior minister conceded last week that he had dispatched intelligence service agents to cinemas showing the film to "gauge" audience reaction and identify potential radicals…

The production went into general release in Germany two weeks ago and has had full houses ever since. More than 130,000 people, most of them young Muslims, saw the film in the first five days of its opening.

At a packed cinema in a largely Turkish immigrant district of Berlin last week, "Valley of the Wolves" was being watched almost exclusively by young Turkish men. They clapped furiously when the Turkish hero of the film was shown blowing up a building occupied by the U.S. military commander in northern Iraq.

In the closing sequence, the hero is shown plunging a dagger into the heart of a U.S. commander called Sam. The audience responded by standing up and chanting "Allah is great!"…

The nature of the film and the enthusiastic reception given to it by young Muslims, has both shocked and polarized politicians and community leaders.

Bernd Neumann, the state secretary for culture in Chancellor Angela Merkel's government complained last week that the reaction to the film "raises serious questions about the values of our society and our ability to instill them."...

Europe, lacking the political will and courage to deport those Muslims who refuse to assimilate, will shortly succumb to the effects of its ‘three monkeys’ political correctness (i.e., see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil), and that too will shock them.
“...Islam is a religion, and an explicitly political one - unlike the birthplace of your grandfather it's not something you leave behind in the old country. Indeed, for its adherents in the West, it becomes their principal expression - a Pan-Islamic identity that transcends borders.”
