It Figures: CAIR Sponsors Islamo-Whitewash Flick, “A Mighty Heart”; TNR Editor Peretz Cites Schlussel

Well, don’t say I didn’t .
I told you about a month ago that Angelina Jolie/Brad Pitt’s new movie, “,” is a whitewash of Islam’s role in the live dissection murder of Daniel Pearl.
Now, there’s confirmation in the form of the Council on American Islamic Relations’ (CAIR) sponsorship of a special showing of the movie in Hollywood. CAIR wouldn’t touch this movie with a ten-foot pole, unless it was anything other than a glowing portrayal of Islam and whitewash of Islamists, which it definitely is. Ditto for Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC), another pan-terrorist, extremist co-sponsor of the event.

Pan-Terrorist Group CAIR Loves “A Mighty Heart” Flick

Even Martin Peretz, Editor/Owner of the liberal The New Republic, notes the CAIR sponsorship on his blog. He also cites my , though he says it seems “hysterical.” Yet he hasn’t seen the movie and his post on the movie matches the sentiments in my review, so who knows:

Angelina is one of those frothy Hollywood humanitarians who, trying to look evil in the eye, decides to find the best in everyone. I suppose it was not she who decided to have “an exclusive screening” of the movie, immediately followed by a panel discussion, “Building Unity and Understanding in Today’s World.” Still, it probably pleased her to have Paramount Vantage organize this Hollywood event, which is being co-sponsored by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, a seedy outfit . . . . Its ties to certified terror organizations and its hate-Israel agenda make it a strange partner to this “progressive” venture.
Which, by the way, is supported by Cafe Intifada, a venue where presumably left-wing Jews meet their Arab counterparts, drinking dark coffee and conjuring up the dark plots the Jewish state is planning against the innocent Palestinian population. The basic strategy of the intifada, first and second, was terror. . . .
I’ve just read a . It strikes me as being more than a bit hysterical. But maybe I don’t understand how ingratiating and insipid the makers of this film–Jolie, Pitt and Michael Winterbottom–wanted to be so they could purport to be “Building Unity and Understanding in Today’s World.” Even the words are bullshit. And the thought is worse.

Uh, Marty, wait until you see the movie. My review is very calm and reasoned–and understated–if anything.
FYI, I was an intern at The New Republic, one summer, when I interned for then-TNR Senior Editors Fred Barnes and Mort Kondracke, now of FOX’s “Beltway Boys.

Don’t forget that Amnesty International and Doctors Without Borders sponsored the NYC premiere. Maybe CAIR and Amnesty should just chip-in on a joint sponsorship next time. Is there any real difference at this point anyway? (hint: rhetorical question).

I didn’t know you interned at TNR! I used to read that magazine. I dropped my subscription when Andrew Sullivan became editor and turned it into a gaycentric publication. Nothing against gays but did everything have to be seen through the gay prism? Then there was the Al Gore connection so it really didn’t interest me at that point. Is Mort as inarticulate and annoying in person as he is on Fox? Both Fred and Mort have gone native and support open borders. Now I’m dropping my Weekly Standard subscription.

Liberalism IS a mental disorder. Why else would they make a pro-islam movie, when muslims has so far to go to prove they are compatible with civilized behavior? These idiot lefties would never make a pro-Christian movie.

Organizations like CAIR have been dancing for a number of years now. Their time to pay the band is coming. I travel A LOT and I can’t tell you all how many people I’ve spoken to, who really want to get rid of all these a-holes (along with most of Congress). I don’t really have a problem with these people (actors) who make movies. They portray themselves in the place of factual or fictitious characters. For better or worse, it’s their interpretation of a written script. It’s when their characters “bleed” over into reality that things go haywire. Branjalina is a pretty good actor but she’s no different than Rosie O’Donnell when it comes to understanding national or global current events. If these people would stick to their jobs and not pontificate on things that highlight their lack of education, things would be so much better. Since when did “Whorelywood” dictate Local, State, U.S., or World policies? Ever notice over the years how these people always bite the hands that feed them?

Bruce Willis’ new Die Hard movie features terrorists, but guess what, they are American ex-government employee cyber-terrorists. It would seem we’re never going to see real terrorists (the RoP kind) in movies again, just phoney non-existant ones.
