Description Banned in France (released as 'Salafistes'), JIHADISTS goes deep into the heart of the Salafi movement, to reveal the inner workings of extremist Islam. A pair of Western filmmakers were granted unparalleled access to fundamentalist clerics of Sunni Islam who proselytize for a "purer" form of Islam--including jihad of the sword--in Mali, Tunisia, Iraq and Afghanistan. Their theoretical interpretations are juxtaposed against images and footage from recruitment videos to show the hardline application of sharia law. Without experts contextualizing these events, the film, which inspired the Oscar-nominated feature, "Timbuktu", paints a stark portrait of everyday life under jihadi rule. Co-directed by Lemine Ould Salem of Mauritania and France's François Margolin, an earlier version of the film was released in the days following the Charlie Hebdo attack in Paris where it was mistakenly interpreted as an empathetic portrayal of jihadism.

In the mid-1990s, as the fall of the Soviet Union began, a massive influx of immigrants from Central Asia, with the largest concentration in Iran, Azerbaijan and the Caucasus, began to flood Europe. Some were Muslims and others were refugees. In the years that followed, some, most notably those from Central Asia, have become the targets of jihadist terror. In this documentary, which was produced by the group "Citizen Lab" and available in French only, three Afghans living in the French suburbs of Paris are interviewed, one of them being Mujahid Abdulhamid, a former jihadist who now works in a French school. "The Islamic State" is a powerful film, and it is important that it is released in its entirety. In its 48-minute duration, this film contains a wealth of information. Although the documentary is primarily a report on the situation in Central Asia, it is also a telling portrayal of the Muslim community in France, and, especially, of its willingness to abandon its own values and sacrifice its own security for a vague goal of self-determination. In the documentary, the participants talk about the consequences of their decision to leave. In one case, a young man named Faisal, a Central Asian Muslim, refused to join the Taliban, preferring instead to travel to Europe, where he hoped to obtain work. Faisal was killed in a car crash while traveling on the road, which left him a paraplegic. Another young man, Muhammad, whose father had been killed by the Taliban, was also killed in a car crash. Muhammad's death also left him paraplegic. A woman, Nasir, who had fled Afghanistan with her two children, told the filmmakers, "It was very difficult to move to France with my two children, they don't speak a word of French, and when I went to get them, they were completely hostile. I tried everything to help them to learn French, but they were not interested. I had to resort to taking them to other countries, to work. I got no results, and so I decided to leave." Nasir's other children are now adult, and they are living in Germany. The filmmakers also talk to an Iranian immigrant named Shiba, who also fled the Taliban, and who is now living in Germany. Shiba had to leave his wife and two children because he had no money. The filmmakers ask Shiba what motivated him to leave. "They [the Taliban] did not have money, but they did not have anything else to live off of, so they did not have any other way to survive," Shiba answers. Shiba then points to a photograph of a man in a burqa. "They did not have a camera. They did not have anything. They were trying to survive, and they were trying to kill us." Shiba then says that he had been living in Europe for three years, and that he was thinking about leaving the country. "I wanted to go back to Afghanistan," Shiba says, "but I realized that I had to leave the country first, and I did not want to stay there any longer." The filmmakers are asking Shiba if he wants to return to Afghanistan. "No, I want to go back to my home country," he says. "I want to stay in Germany." The filmmakers then ask Shiba what is the reason for leaving the country. "The Taliban have no money," he says. "They do not have anything to eat, and they have not had a chance to study." Shiba and Nasir are seen in the documentary talking about the importance of learning French. "The Taliban," Shiba says, "want us to learn French. They have no money, but they have a video camera." "You can't say that you are not going to go back to the country," Nasir

By now you've heard the news. We all know the story: Iraq is awash in weapons of mass destruction. Our soldiers are in danger. A secret Pentagon unit is ready to "go to war" if they can be convinced that Saddam Hussein has weapons of mass destruction. If you thought the scene in "Platoon" was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. "The Rise of the Warrior Cop" is not a documentary. It is the story of one of these so-called "warriors cop" squads, which is, to be frank, not very credible. The men on the unit, who seem to be born to fight, have a lot of trouble with their jobs. The commander, who has all the guns, has little time for what the men do. The unit is led by Captain Michael Bay, whose life seems to be a succession of mistakes. His protégé, who has spent years with him, is the young lieutenant. As a result, the squad is rife with violence. If this is the product of a movie, we don't need to know. We know that the troops are fighting, that there are shootings, that the guys are killed, and that the captain, whose life is a succession of mistakes, is not very likable. The message is clear. This is a story about soldiers who fight, and we don't need to know anything more. If you do, you will be disappointed. If you don't, you won't. I don't expect to see much more of this movie. I don't expect to see the usual explanation of why we need to go to war, or how our men will get killed. I don't expect the men in this movie to die in the course of the movie. I don't expect the story to make any sense. But I do expect this to be a story worth watching. I would, however, advise you to check out "Platoon," which I also recommend.

The film, "The Arab World in War and Peace," takes us into the lives of the Arabs of the Middle East and the people who live there. For the most part, it follows the lives of three young men who have become involved in the fight for independence from the rule of the Egyptian dictatorship. The film doesn't provide any background information on the two leaders. The focus is on the fighters themselves, their personal stories and how they are struggling to hold onto their homeland and their freedom. The film's strength is the ability to show the fighters' struggle and their struggle for freedom. The cinematography is incredible. I was struck by the sheer beauty of the desert, the beauty of the environment and the sadness of the situation of the people who lived there. The film's subject matter is quite shocking to the viewer. The film's director, Alon Hagai, has made a film that is accessible to anyone with an interest in the Arab world. His subjects are not simply the fighters, but also the people who live in the Arab world, who have suffered because of the dictatorships that have existed there. I found the movie to be extremely inspiring and thought-provoking. The film's strengths are its ability to be entertaining and its ability to provide a snapshot of the life of the people in the Middle East. The movie's weaknesses are its length and its editing. Some scenes drag on and on, the editing could have been better. I don't understand why the movie was edited this way. The movie is also a bit too long, and at times, the viewer might feel that the film is too long. Overall, "The Arab World in War and Peace" is a must-see for anyone who is interested in the Middle East or who wants to learn about the history of the region.

As a former member of the intelligence community I can tell you that the reporting of terrorism in the Middle East is very complex. The Arab Spring, for instance, did not create a single terrorist organization. The U.S. intelligence community did. And in the case of the U.S. military it's been the intelligence community who has worked the most to make sure the U.S. military does not become the instrument of the political will of the Arabs. As a former intelligence officer I feel the need to write this review, because it is one of the most important pieces of information that is still not widely known to the American public. I should have known when I attended my first intelligence briefing that the stories of CIA officials were true. The people I spoke to that day did not know how often they were told, but they knew it was not infrequent. The most important part of this film is the fact that this information has been kept secret for the last thirty years, and I am still trying to understand why the CIA did not tell me about it. This film does a good job of telling me why the CIA would not tell me about it. Unfortunately the CIA is an organization that is somewhat of a mystery to most people, and this is why the CIA does not want its name associated with any of the things it has done. And as I said in the beginning, I am not an intelligence officer, but it is my opinion that the story of the CIA's involvement in terrorism is a well-told story that should be known to the American public.
