JLH sends his translation of a German-language TV review from Politically Incorrect. I am as amazed as the translator that the film described could have appeared on any Western state-sponsored TV network, and in Germany, of all places.
We certainly would never see anything like it on PBS here in the USA — much less on CBS, NBC, ABC, etc. Nor can I imagine that it would be aired in Canada, Australia, or the UK. This is a breakthrough:
ARD TV Film: “Inshallah” — As Allah Wills
by Michael Stürzenberger
June 16, 2011
Yesterday evening the ARD [National broadcasting, analogous to BBC, MPBN] offered a TV film in prime time, at 8:15 PM, and watching it made you rub your eyes, more amazed from minute to minute. So many political incorrectnesses massed together in educational television governed by public law have rarely been seen. The video “Inshallah” describes the elements of the “most peaceful of all religions” with such intensity that even the eyes of the most uninformed do-gooder idealist must have been opened wide.
Astonishingly, Islam’s full program was there to be seen: A shattered marriage between a German woman and a Muslim Iraqi, who in the end took his nine-year-old daughter, Dalia, back to his home country. When she returns to Cologne at seventeen — a believing Muslim, she prays in a mosque which is being surveilled by the BKA [FBI with more guttural initials], is in close contact with the radical Islamic woman, Halimah, who teaches her to internalize the concept “taqiyya” and induces her to commit a suicide attack on infidel kuffars.
At the same time, her father, Basim, comes to Cologne to fetch her back to Iraq. In the best Islamic tradition, her mother’s opinion, of course, counts for nothing. The showdown takes place in a church: The psychotherapist Bloch is attempting with a reading from the Bible to talk the veiled suicide bomber, who has her finger on the button of the bomb, out of mass murder in service of Allah. Now, if that is not a highly insensitive attempt at inter-religious dialogue. Dalia cries fervidly to him:
“But Allah has commanded, blasphemers and infidels are to be killed! Allah is taking me by the hand and showing me the way.”
This film deserves the sobriquet “absolutely worthwhile.”
By way of exception, the ARD this time has earned respectful and laudatory reviews. With such films, it may be possible to open the eyes of the populace to what is rapidly spreading among us.
