Leave it to
eagle-eyed critic Debbie Schlussel to
spot the hand of Al Qaeda in Andre Dubus III’s Oprah-touted “The Garden of Last Days,” which
“sympathizes” with one of the 9/11 terrorists. Good call, Debbie - if we start to try comprehending the motives
and psychology of our enemy, then the terrorists will win.
doesn’t stop there. Of course you’d expect a pointy-headed liberal “auteur”
like Steven Soderbergh to spend four hours of screen time celebrating the life
of a cold-blooded commie killer in his new hagiographic biopic “Che.” Nor is it a surprise that our craven European “allies” are turning out garbage hailing such
deranged political criminals as the Baader-Meinhof gang (in the upcoming German film “The Baader-Meinhof Complex”) or the lovable Carlos the Jackal in a new film by French director Olivier
But in fact
the bad guys are much closer to home, no further away than the local multiplex.
Again, hats off to Debbie Schlussel on tipping us off months ago about the
baleful influence of "Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo:" “It's not
exactly a newsflash that Hollywood
sides with Islamic terrorists and is against the impotent War on Terror,” she
sagely reminds us. “And I've noted that actor Kal Penn, who played Kumar Patel

about Kal Penn.
I mean, he LOOKS like a terrorist. But Adam Sandler? Sad but true. His new
comedy “Don’t Mess With the Zohan” not only portrays a terrorist (played by
John Turturro) as “sympathetic,” but has the malignant audacity to suggest that
one way to solve the ongoing crisis in the Middle East is by having Israelis
and Palestinians getting along with each other! “[H]igh quality Bin Laden Cinema” indeed.
You can mess
with the Zohan. But don’t mess with Debbie Schlussel
