@ The Movies: “Rendition” Against America, Bin Laden Style

By Debbie Schlussel
I’ve already said most of what I had to say about the blatant propaganda film, “Rendition,” which debuts in theaters, today, so I’m reposting my previous post on this movie, below, to remind you, along with these other points I did not yet make about this “Traffic” for Terrorists movie starring newly-minted dhimmi Reese Witherspoon:
Left-wing Jake Gyllenhaal’s CIA Agent character tells us, tells his senior CIA bosses:

If you torture one person, you create ten, a hundred, a thousand new enemies.

That’s the message of this movie, which is starkly one-sided and high-quality propaganda against torturing of Islamic terrorist who want to eliminate us off the face of the planet.

It’s one of the claims of the left in its attempt to stop us from finding out information that could save Americans’ lives and has in the past. Our torture, our surveillance, or get-tough efforts that we’ve used far too little of is what saves American lives, not left-wing movies that tell us the same message Bin Laden wants us to hear– ie., that we are evil, torturous barbarians and that if we torture, we won’t get the real info on their plans. Actually, past practice has proven otherwise. It has proven some terrorists do talk, many do talk. And it has proven that if you torture one person, you save ten, a hundred, a thousand lives.
But Bin Laden and the Qaedans want us to think otherwise (just as the makers of this movie want you to think otherwise), so that their warriors have it easy. Other than that, the movie is boring, slow-going, and uses confusing timeline-jumping, flashback tricks without telling the viewer.
Here’s the rest on this extremely skipworthy movie:
Alhamdillullah [Praise Allah], Reese Witherspoon Joins the Jihad
By Debbie Schlussel (September 26, 2007)
Yesterday, I screened the upcoming propaganda release, “Rendition,” which has a didactic message against torturing of “alleged” Muslim terrorists.
Like I’ve said about so many other of these propaganda films coming out of Hollywood these days, this one, too, is high quality Bin Laden cinema. Wouldn’t be surprised if the writer, producers, and director are all card-carrying members of the ACLU Politburo. It stars Reese Witherspoon, Jake Gyllenhaal (whose homely sister, Maggie Gyllenhaal, said America deserved 9/11), his “brother-in-law” (not sure what you actually call the person who fathered a kid out of wedlock with your sister, other than “scumbag”) Peter Sarsgaard (he’s the same guy who defamed Federal Air Marshals as terrorists in “Flight Plan”), Meryl Streep, and Alan Arkin.

Gone is the cute Reese Witherspoon of “Legally Blonde” days. She’s no longer the strong but feminine woman of “Sweet Home Alabama” and other films. Now, she’s a dhimmi (the status of a non-Muslim in a Muslim society)–the blonde apologist for Islamic extremists and Noam Chomsky types by lending her name and acting to this propaganda-fest. Shame on her. I thought the “Rendition” movie name and poster were not accurate. I liked my ideas far better and asked David Lunde make these two above (can’t decide which one is more accurate). Of course, since they (Muslims) hate dogs, maybe we should have shown a beheaded Chihuahua.
The gist of the movie is that an innocent Egyptian Muslim living in America is wrongly accused of being a terrorist, kidnapped by the CIA, and tortured (waterboarded, beaten, electrocuted). The Egyptian is married to Reese Witherspoon in the movie.
And she tells all who will listen that her Egyptian Muslim husband (who still is not a U.S. citizen after 20 years here) could not possibly be a terrorist because “he coaches [his son’s] soccer team, has a green card, pays his taxes.” Because terrorists would never do that, right? I’m sure all those HAMAS soccer teams in Gaza are associate with HAMAS the peace group, instead of HAMAS the terrorist group.
Terrorists love this kind of movie because it makes their job easier. It softens the Oprah-cized American public and makes them scowl at torture of what are almost always real terrorists who want to kill us. Of course, in this movie, there is no not-so-innocent Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. As we know, he is not an innocent Muslim living in America. He was Al-Qaeda’s top director of terrorist planning and operations for Bin Laden who was tortured by waterboarding and other means, and because of it, we learned of terrorist plots and plans that were stopped.
The real “Rendition” movie poster, below, reads: “What If Someone You Love . . . Just Disappeared?” But it should really say: “What If Someone You Love . . . Was Just Murdered by An Islamic Terrorist Who Didn’t Disappear?”
But you won’t see that in this movie, which debuts October 19th. It’s a little too close to Halloween then to tell the real story. So instead they bring you costumes and costumed reality about innocent Muslims tortured for nothing.
We know the real story. It’s a shame Hollywood won’t tell it.

I am suprised about Reese Witherspoon as she seemed definitely not a Hollywood moonbat.

I just saw Rendition; what a crock! Nevermind the time warp narrative that obliterates common sense, the producers secularize jihad. There is only one brief scene in which Islamic imperative is allowed to be a proximate cause of suicide terror. But, ultimately, jihad murderers don’t slaughter for their 72 virgin award; they do it for personal revenge against big bad America and its friends. As for the ideology of the terror group, the script skates around the Muslim Brotherhood dictum, “jihad is the way.” The producers message: terrorism is the product of situational ethics mixed with defensive-war against America.
As for the scenes of farmed out torture, farming out would appear to preclude CIA witness of same. Not in this agit-prop. The techniques are straight out of accounts of the Arar case, which resulted in apologies from 50 US legislators the day before the film opened. What a coincidence! Unfortunately, other than effecting the rendition, US authorities were blameless for the accusations against Arar. Canada’s security service (CSIS) admitted that details of Arar’s relationship with an uncle who had actual terror connections, were falsified in order to concoct a lead for security conscious American intelligence. The government of Canada paid Arar ten million dollars in compensation. Prior to same his Islamic garbed wife sought federal office with the anti-American, New Democratic Party (she lost). When questions of her approach to gay rights were raised, she said that she would defer to her party’s position notwithstanding her Ikhwan opposition to Western decadence. Jihad if you can; democratic politics if you can’t, yet.
Some US legislators spoke of further compensation to Arar. For what? For providing Democratic Party propaganda? For trusting the Canadians?

I feel sorry for Witherspoon. At her age, all she has been taught is America=Bad.
It’s frightening to think of the PC anti-US BS kids are taught in school, but this is what you get–propaganda on behalf of the enemy that the enemy doesn’t even have to pay for.

“…Egyptian Muslim living in America is wrongly accused of being a terrorist, kidnapped by the CIA, and tortured (waterboarded, beaten, electrocuted).”
Well, to be fair, they had to show a fictionalized version of US torture. Real CIA torture would be to much for film censors.
…fake menstrual blood… ham sandwiches… the HORROR….

He should put a burka on the dog.

I saw the film this morning and the subtext that occurred to me is that America is a very dangerous friend to have. The Egyptian security chief who finally breaks the terrorist, is betrayed by his American observer.

Yup, we are willing to betray the few Muslims who are our friends and help our enemies who want to destroy us. And we wonder why even the “good” Muslims distrust us.

Our Bin Laden quality pan-Islamic propaganda movies are not so much a reflection of the Muslim World as its reflection of the treachery in America. This one thing about “Rendition” that is literally true is there are thousands of pan-Islamic and terrorist sympathizers honeycombed throughout our homeland security network.

“Rendition” does acknowledge that torture and breaking terrorists actually saves lives. But then that would be admitting people sent to prisons in other countries aren’t actually the innocents like the film makes the lead Muslim character to be. The worst Islamic terrorists are secular Muslims like Mohammed Atta. Ironically, “Rendition” makes a note of it but it wasn’t enough to change the anti-American diatribe that permeates it.
