EXCLUSIVE: The Muslim Honor Killing Hollywood Doesn’t Want You to See (Anti-Semitic Scenes Remain); Did ICE Movie Writer/Director Lie to Get U.S. Citizenship?

By Debbie Schlussel
**** UPDATE, 06/05/08: More on how “Crossing Over” a/k/a “ICE, The Movie,” Lies About U.S. immigration policy and defames ICE Agents ****
**** MUST CITE Debbie Schlussel and/or DebbieSchlussel.com (That means you, Sean Hannity & Wold Nut Daily) ****
To update an old Mark Twain (and Benjamin Disraeli) quote, there are lies, damned lies, and Hollywood scripts.
Sometimes the lies are not what is in the script, but what is removed under pressure from whining, politically correct interest groups. These days, those groups are primarily Muslim and Middle Eastern.

Honor Killing Scene Deleted From “ICE, The Movie” a/k/a “Crossing Over”

Muslim groups have successfully gotten scenes–accurately depicting them as terrorists and murderers–removed from scripts or changed to another, more acceptable nationality. Brilliant blogger Sultan Knish drew my attention to the latest such cave-in: “Crossing Over,” starring Harrison Ford and Sean Penn and produced by the Weinstein Brothers. I’ve been writing extensively about this movie and have a copy of the original script.
Muslim Iranians were upset that a scene portrays them committing an honor killing. Late last week, they succeeded in getting it removed from the film. No worries, though, about the anti-Semitic scenes in the movie. Those remain. The Weinsteins and Writer/Director Wayne Kramer are Jewish, and we can’t expect them to cave on those the way they did for the “more worthy” Muslims. It’s politically correct to attack Jews, not so–these days in Hollywood–to attack those who attacked us before and on 9/11 and repeatedly try to again.
In the movie–about immigration, illegal aliens, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents–Hamid Baraheri is a Muslim Iranian ICE agent in his early forties. Predictably, he is Hollywood’s version of a kind, decent, hard-working, loyal American agent, much unlike the real-life Muslim federal agents, many of whom have been the subject of insubordination and tipping off targets in federal terrorism investigations.
But Baraheri’s brother, Farid, murders his sister, Zahra, in an honor-killing, and ICE Special Agent Hamid Baraheri is in on it. After all, Zahra is dating non-Muslim men and sleeping with a Latino. An honorable Muslim family cannot allow her to live and continue to shame them with her existence.
And though you will never get to see that scene, my spies in Hollywood got me the script, so I’m reposting the scene below (scanned from the script).
**** HERE IS THE MUSLIM HONOR KILLING SCENE, recently deleted from the “Crossing Over” script:

In their successful campaign to get the scene removed, Iranian Muslims whined that Iranians don’t commit honor killings. But they should tell that to the Iranian Supreme Court, which–only four months ago–acquitted a gang of six men who brutally murdering a woman because she was holding hands with a man to whom she was engaged. And there have been many other instances of honor-killing in the country (including here and here). To claim that Iranians don’t commit honor killings is like saying Americans don’t eat at McDonalds.
It appears that the part which most offended Muslim Iranians was not the honor killing itself, but the invocation of the name in the script that we all know comes with most honor killings:

May Allah have mercy on your soul.

Of course, even that was a sanitized version of what happens at Muslim honor killings. Usually there are no well-wishes for Allah’s mercy on the “dishonorable” victim. Instead, it’s the general, Allahu Akbar [Allah is the Greatest/Greater, as in "Greater" than other gods], asserting the “godliness” of the despicable cold-blooded murder.
Since the honor-killing is a theme discussed in several scenes toward the end of “Crossing Over,” one wonders whether it will be sanitized out completely from the movie, which has already wrapped filming. That’s a likely bet.
The Weinsteins say they removed the scene because:

While we believe strongly in freedom of expression, we also believe in the importance of constructive dialogue between artists and the communities they seek to portray.

Apparently they and Wayne Kramer had no dialogue between their own community of fellow co-religionists because these scenes remain:
* Gavin Kossef, a Jewish illegal alien Hebrew Teacher (who barely knows Hebrew) from South Africa, and the Israeli principal of the L.A. Jewish school where he teaches discuss their plan to openly defraud Citizenship and Immigration Services (CIS) officials so he can get U.S. citizenship and keep teaching at the school. This is phony, since there are no shortage of U.S. citizens trying to get jobs at Hebrew schools. And unlike him, they can actually speak Hebrew.
* Gavin is sleeping with an illegal alien Australian actress who is also sleeping with a CIS adjudicator, so she can get citizenship. After one of their sex-scenes, she throws a Siddur (Jewish prayer book) at his naked body, while she gets dressed. Ask yourself: Would this scene remain in the movie if it was a Koran being thrown? Trust me, if this guy doesn’t know Hebrew and is sleeping around with a gentile actress, he ain’t carrying around a Siddur (it’s in Hebrew).
* The CIS adjudicator assigned to Gavin’s case doesn’t believe he knows Hebrew, that he is lying to get a special skills visa (as I said before, Hebrew-speaking is not a “special skill”; Enough Americans speak it to keep the Hebrew schools running). The adjudicator brings in a rabbi, Rabbi Yoffie, to hear Gavin sing a Hebrew song or prayer. Gavin hasn’t a clue and sings something completely jumbled and non-sensical. Yet, the “trusted Rabbi” lies to the adjudicator, saying Gavin did well, and bingo, he’s approved.
Yes, Muslim imams never do this, but Rabbis are defrauding immigration all the time. Right? That’s despite report after report from Homeland Security and Congress that MUSLIMS–not Jews, not any other religion–are fraudulently obtaining special visas for “religious workers.” But, hey, it’s Hollywood. Who cares about facts?
And while we’re discussing facts, there are the “facts” of Writer/Director Wayne Kramer that remain in question. He recently became a U.S. citizen, and as Sultan Knish (who gave me a lot of background on Kramer) points out, Kramer says the script is based on his own life:

I’ve lived every step of the way in the screenplay. The average American citizen does not understand how hard it is to get status in America.”
The director said the immigration issue is much bigger than people crossing the Mexican border illegally. For that reason, his script also examines “how the system works and who are the people caught up in it and forced to do fraudulent things.”

Sultan Knish notes that like, Gavin Kossef, the Jewish South-African character who defrauds Immigration officials to get citizenship, Kramer is also a Jewish South-African. And Sultan Knish raises another point:

It’s also listed elsewhere that Kramer had malaria back in South Africa. Is malaria a condition that bars immigrants? Did he lie about it?

Is Wayne Kramer “Gavin”? Did he fraudulently obtain citizenship? If so, his citizenship application can be re-opened and he can be stripped of it and deported.
Based on this horrid PC movie, that would be just desserts. But don’t hold your breath for ICE and CIS–the two largest Homeland Security agencies–to even care.
Their “leadership” is too busy doing more important things, like recruiting new Muslim agents to honor-kill their sisters.

The reason movies like this are made is simply because Christians & Jews will not murder the film makers. Muslims will. This is why we continue to see lawsuits to stop Judeo/Christian prayer in schools while simultaneously universities around the country build muslim-centric facilities on campus. These “americans” are traitors and sellouts. They will continue to feverishly bank their money while the rest of us are pressed into dhimmitude. Thanks for nothing you rats.

There is a muslim stranglehold on the American psyche. Establishment (liberal)media will not address anti-Semitism and, in fact, promotes it with anti-Semitic images and storylines. I often discontinue watching. When those of Jewish background kneel to Islamic pressure to promote anti-Semitic characterizations as reality it is very hurtful to the rest of us (Jews and others). Self hatred is a sorry state and deeply sad. Not everyone is the kind of hero you are, Debbie. Keep writing about this issue! & Thank you!

On the TV show Big Brother, one of the “Christian” house-mates went on an anti-Jewish rant. It was captured and posted on u-tube. I’m betting the network simply ignores it, and I’m also betting that if she’d ranted against Muslims she’d be gonzo in a heart-beat.

stevecanuck on August 9, 2007 at 9:47 am

Great story Debbie: I don’t understand the psychology of Jews who want to defame and destroy other Jews. Leftist ideology trumps all, I guess.

sonomaca on August 9, 2007 at 10:47 am

Sonomaca;
It doesn’t take an excess amount of knowlegde in psychology to figure out the defamation and bashing of jews to other jews stems from self-hatred which is prevalent among the majority of left wing secular jews. I don’t condone such jew bashing. As a patriotic American jew, I find it repulsive and disgracefull. You can imagine what must be going through the mind of every anti-semite who sees jews portraying other jews in a negative degrading way via movies of this sort, not to mention the message that resonates with them.
I think I best skip this movie, exspecially if its starring the obnoxious Sean Penn, a left wing self hating American traitor in my opinion. I can almost bet the Honor Killing scene was ommitted due to the dissapproval of CAIR.

I’ll never understand why the liberal Jewish direcors and scriptwriters in Hollywood, many of whom had relatives perish in hitler’s ovens, continue to kiss mooslim butt in film. Do they not understand how incredibly anti-Semitic Muslims are (even your average akhmed on the street)?
Attention Jews: *muslims want you dead*.
If anything, you should be using your platform to counter their hateful messages, and awaken our country to the future we face if we keep kowtowing to these scumbags.

live from dearbornistan on August 9, 2007 at 11:13 am

I think one of the most disturbing things here is that in reality hollywood has a great influence over the average American. Alot of people are so busy with their day to day lives that they do not stay informed on important issues . Now let’s go out to relax tonight and see a movie. This movie may become their reality no matter how inaccurate the message .
I was so happy to see that the muslims were offended by the movie 300 ! What did the director say ? So what I’m offended by the Last of the Mohicans . Something like that . We have to fight fire with fire .

Too bad the movie is dooming itself to all of the usual cliches.
Kramer is wrong, no one is “forced” to commit fraud, that is a choice, one that demonstrates lack of faith. For someone who has “lived every step” he skipped lawful permanent residence (greencards) and went right to citizenship -two completely different concepts. Some residents are happy to maintain their native citizenship and remain greencard holders.
I have worked more religious worker benefit fraud cases than any agent I have met with ICE. They are the wackiest cases.
Let me tell that all of the belief systems have been guilty at one time or another. Usually a particular congregation has a leader that is put under pressure by a member to go along with this scheme, afterall they pay his salary. An Assyrian church leader went along with a fraudulent petition once and was cooperative in hopes I would go along because the petitioner had a daughter that received a $40,000 scholarship to the University of California. A state school, the university would not grant the benefit without proof of residency. Remember, they lied to get her accepted which cost a legal resident an education there. When I suggested that maybe God had a plan and that fraud wasn’t the answer, they quit cooperating. I asked their attorney what happened, she said, “Oh, the law changed and they were able to receive the scholarship money, afterall”. Their case was an example of choosing evil and lost faith in the face of adversity, they lied for nothing.
“Render unto Cesar, that which is Cesar’s”
The way things appear now, this movie may go straight to video.

mnay liberal jews have been seduced by the idea that they can have their cake and eat it too. they can be both liberal and protected by their wealth and power. unfortunately liberalism ( marxism) and islam are the same in many many ways.
but then the time comes to deal with reality and people start dying and guess who cant defend themselves?
this is a problem for city slickers and people dependent on other’s acceptance. proactive individuals know that once one steps out of cities like LA and NY muslims tend to keep their mouths shut and toe the line. the only thing worse than an ignorant loser is one that demands that you explain what they have done. the best way to control muslims is to let them keep doing what they do to each other. underneath it all deb isnt trying to denigrate them at all, she’s trying to save them from themselves. For this she will be denounced and unpersoned. the kramers and weinsteins are the ones commiting the racism by removing the scenes. but understanding that would require actual thinking..

Another huge problem with Hollywood’s portrayal of America, Christians, and Jews, is that this is where a lot of people around the world get their impressions of us from.
I lived in Japan for two years, and no one there knows a thing about America or Jews or Christians, and I have no doubt that it’s the same way in China and Korea. That right there is about a quarter of the people in the world. And their impression of us is taken entirely from movies. I met people who were convinced that America was like what was portrayed in “American History X”. The common sentiment over there is “All religions are about the same, and Christianity, Islam, and Judaism are more or less interchangeable.” And at the same time, “The Motorcycle Diaries” was providing them their first exposure to Che Guevara.
This is the true damage of our movie industry. It’s no good for Americans to see this either, but at least a lot of us have enough exposure to the subject matter to know the truth. But there are over a billion people in this world who know nothing about this stuff *except* for what they see in these movies. It’s downright irresponsible what these movie producers are doing. The pendulum has swung so far in the opposite direction from “whitewashing white racism in the past” that now “white racism in the past” is the *only* thing a historical movie can be about anymore. It’s not a “nuanced re-examination of a certain time period” if that’s the only thing that’s taught to people in the first place.

LibertarianBulbasaur on August 12, 2007 at 9:52 pm

why don’t you all wait until you see the actual film before condemning it? A film goes through hundreds of changes from the original script until it ends up on screen. Right now, rushing to attack this as liberal Hollywood propaganda is extremely premature.
Someone connected to the production told a friend of mine that the Muslim murder still happens (and it’s pretty graphic), and the only thing that got changed is no one uses the term “honor” in reference to the murder. But the intent is still clearly implied.

lawnorder on August 13, 2007 at 10:51 pm

Wow this is amazing. Oh where did you get this information:
much unlike the real-life Muslim federal agents, many of whom have been the subject of insubordination and tipping off targets in federal terrorism investigations.
That sounds scary and i wouldn’t mind reading some articles backing this up.

lockstock on August 29, 2007 at 9:23 pm

Debbie, as always, many thanks. As far as I can tell, they want us ALL dead–anyone not a Muslim is an Infidel and as such, needs to die. It is a disgrace that the entire world is caving into this kind of insanity.

truthisgold on May 21, 2009 at 10:08 pm

we should do something drastic about this situation before we wake up one day & find out this whole U.S. is already a muslim state, YUCK!!!! i cringe at the thought that they would take away all the freedoms that our ancestors gave their very lives for! yo brothers, wake up & unite against this plague lest we all will be infested by it!

renegade960 on September 5, 2009 at 9:16 pm

In the movie the illegal alien aussie actress who sleeps with CIS adjudicator gets her citizenship but the fraud is discovered, the adjudicator arrested and the actress deported as also the Bangladeshi Muslim Girl who foolishly, arrogantly and fanatically tries to justify her opinion about the 9/11 terrorists and murderers. I would like to know the incidence of how many caucasians/whites get deported from USA. Another misleading part of the narration is the number of Blacks in high executive posts in Immigration. Every scene of arresting and deporting aliens has a black doing the honors. Not a single Black alien is shown arrested or deported in the movie. These are few of the big holes in the script. And the version I watched has all the scenes that this blogger (Debbie Schlussel) says is removed

Don’t you acknowledge that it’s the best time to receive the business loans, which can make your dreams come true.

AmberMCCALL33 on May 18, 2010 at 9:54 pm

Have been away from blogs for awhile…came back to Debbie at just the right time. Glad I found out about this film. Time to catch up on the older entries….

Not Ovenready on March 2, 2013 at 10:07 pm

It’s odd to see crazycatkids commenting above. From 2009! I guess that may have been me. Why are older comments being displayed? not that it matters.

I agree with myself then. It’s become more and more difficult to watch TV and I don’t watch many movies (one of the many reasons Debbie is so valuable to us by screening films, she lets us know which are “safe” ones).
Americans used to have lots of entertainment choices and it is difficult to “withdraw.”
As our world closes in, less and less people are willing to be any kind of hero.

Crazycatkids on March 8, 2013 at 1:30 pm

Why people still use to read news papers when in this technological globe the whole thing is presented on net?
