All I need to know about Islam: Not Without My Daughter

I actually read the 1987 book. Ages ago, when I was young. I never forgot it. This trailer looks to be an accurate portrayal of how I remember the book. It is one of the most gripping, terrifying stories I know. A mother's struggle to keep her child safe. Primal and timeless.

I saw this movie not too long ago on cable. It is definitely worth seeing.

Sadly, I don't expect Hollywood to be making movies like this anytime soon . . . maybe never again. They are too busy being PC.

Welcome to the world of Islam they want to share with the world.

I remember this well. What really bothers me is that there is NO WAY anybody'd produce this film today....NO WAY would Sally Fields probably even star in it.
It's the truth, this didn't only happen once or twice, but no production company would touch this story with a 10' pole today and, if they did, Muslims would be marching in the streets. Sadly, the WE ARE AMERICAN! comment was made so proudly that it sounded almost foreign to my ears today.
Yes "primal and timeless".....
In the fear of Muslims and the Hollywood leftwing 'open mindedness' of accepting other cultures and slamming our own, the only sequel I could imagine anybody producing today would be a story about how the daughter grows up and decides she likes Iran better! :-)

And I quote. "Everything I need to know about Islam; I learned on 911" Actually in 1979 when the peanut farmer was whatever and they held 52 hostages for 444 days.

I saw this movie when it first came out. Upon leaving the movie we were being told that we just invaded Iraq to free Kuwait. It seemed ironic, wouldn't you say?

I remember when this came out 23 years ago. Not only has nothing changed, it's gotten far worse and remember, Iran was fighting a world jihidist war with Iraq at the time. Now this evil country is about to go nuclear! Who would had thought that when this was made. Now our media and government supports the Iranians. History proves that man learns nothing from history. The final proof is the feminist spoke out against this abuse then. Now they're silent, like good Muslim women. My how things have changed. . . for the worse.

This looks like it is well worth seeing. True story movies are my favorites. This movie trailer looked so good that I just sent my hubby out to look for the movie.
