Five Minarets In Fantasyland

Via Atlas Shrugs, I learn of a Turkish-financed movie called “Five Minarets In New York.” Here is one of the posters for the film; click to enlarge:

The film’s official site is here. This is how the moviemakers describe the story, not very coherently:

Leader of a radical Islamic organization, Anti Christ whose name turned out to be a phenomenon and who was sought with red notice by Interpol was reported to have been taken into custody in the USA. In order to fetch the convict, the two most successful policemen of the Turkish Police Department fly to the USA. Everything from then on seems easy but things are never the same as they seem. The story taking place within Istanbul, New York and Bitlis triangle challenges the recent-era Turkey and underlines America’s paranoia with the Islamic world after 9/11.

As you can see if you watch the trailer, this description is modest. The movie is actually more pro-terrorist and anti-American than the plot description suggests. Suffice it to say that if you see a guy in an orange jump suit, he is the hero. Long-time Hollywood radical Danny Glover plays a starring role, illustrating once again the easy alliance between the far Left and Islamic extremism.
During the Cold War, there were many in the West who were sympathetic to Communism but didn’t want to admit to being Communists. I believe it was Gore Vidal, one of their number, who labeled himself an anti-anti-Communist. Today, in a very similar way, we have some in the West who do not openly endorse Islamic terrorism, but can fairly be described as anti-anti-terrorist.
