Here are some films with artistic value and realistic content about Islamic doctrine that are worth watching.
Not Without My Daughter American 1991
This older but outstanding film has aged well with time. It has a great plot, good characterizations, dialogue, art direction and superb performances by Sally Field and Alfred Molina.
Here is Roger Ebert’s in-depth review of Not Without My Daughter
The Circle Iranian 2000
Iranian films are thoughtful, sophisticated and highly visual. Many of their plots are concerned with the lack of women’s rights and their plight under sharia law. The opening of The Circle rates as one of the best in the history of foreign films, conveying the attitudes toward females in Islamic countries using few words and a claustrophobic location.
Here is Roger Ebert’s in-depth review of The Circle.
A Criminal Modus Operandi
In a National Geographic article on Persia  there is a remarkable quote: “Before they (Islam) came, we (Persia) were a great and civilized power.” …Echoing commonly stated, though disputed, lore…. “They burned our books and raped our women, and we couldn’t speak Farsi (the Persian language) in public or they took our tongues.”
Notice the hedging of bets with the “commonly stated, though disputed lore”. It is conventional wisdom, but it may not be true. There are different ways to verify whether or not Islam burned books and raped the Persian women, but one way to verify is with what police call, modus operandi, MO, method of operation. It is used in law enforcement to describe a criminal’s habitual patterns and style of committing crimes. MO is common sense. Criminals, like everybody else, do what is familiar and works.
But MO is usually applied to a person. Islam’s habitual patterns are preserved in its doctrine. The first great principle of Islam is that non-Muslims are kafirs. A kafir is not just an unbeliever in Mohammed’s prophecy but a kafir has a special place in Islam and that place is all bad. Islam has dualistic ethics for the kafir. A Muslim is a brother to another Muslim, but kafirs can be insulted, robbed, murdered and tortured.
Kafir women can be raped in jihad. There are three different verses in the Koran that relate to having sex with your slaves:
Koran 70:22 Not the devout, who pray constantly and whose wealth has a fixed portion set aside for beggars and the destitute, and those who believe in the Judgment Day, and those who fear their Lord’s punishment-because no one is safe from their Lord’s punishment-and who control their sexual desires, except with their wives or slave-girls, with them there is no blame; but whoever indulges their lust beyond this are transgressors), and who keep their trusts and promises, and who tell the truth, and who are attentive to their prayers. These will live with honors in Gardens.
This is an interesting verse. It is an ethical list of behaviors: pray, give charity to the poor, truth telling and having sex with your slave-girls. Another verse says that even married slave girls are to be used for sex.
What is a slave? A kafir who has been captured and who has no defenders. How long do you have to hold the captive until they can be considered good for sex? Well, the Hadith as an answer has for us.
Here we see that at first the jihadists were reluctant to have sex with the captive women because of their husbands being nearby. But the Koran established that it was not immoral for them to rape kafir women because they had husbands.
Abu Muslim 008, 3432
Mohammed sent an army to Autas and encountered the enemy and fought with them. Having overcome them and taken them captives, the Companions seemed to refrain from having intercourse with captive women because of their husbands being kafirs. Then Allah, Most High, sent down regarding that: “And women already married, except those whom your right hands possess (iv. 24)” (i. e. they were lawful for them when their menstrual period came to an end).
How soon? On the same day according to the Sira:
Ishaq 758 Dihya had asked Mohammed for Safiya, and when he chose her for himself Mohammed gave Safiya’s two cousins to Dihya in exchange. The women of Khaybar were distributed among the Muslims.
Ishaq 759 A man said, ‘Let me tell you what I heard the apostle say on the day of Khaybar. He got up among us and said: “It is not lawful for a Muslim to mingle his seed with another man’s [meaning to have sex with a pregnant woman among the captives], nor is it lawful for him to take her until he has made sure that she is in a state of cleanness [not having her period].
As long as the kafir woman was not pregnant or having her period, the Muslim can rape her. Of course, a kafir should not even see the Muslim woman, hence, the veil, but a Muslim can have sex with a captured kafir woman. This is as good an illustration of Islam’s dual ethics as any other.
The story of Islamic rape was repeated in Turkey, Eastern Europe, Egypt, Spain and Hindustan. It is going on in Africa today. Rape is the Islamic modus operandi, way of doing business.
What about the book burning? When Islam invaded Hindustan (India) the largest library in the world was at Nalanda, a Buddhist center of learning. It took days to burn the library.
After all, all kafir culture was jahiliya, ignorant and hated by Allah. Books, art and all kafir culture are despised by Allah. When Muslims destroy civilizations, they are doing a good moral work. The books destroyed in Persia and India were an affront to Islam.
The other part of cultural destruction is the elimination of languages. When Islam invaded Coptic Egypt, a kafir would have his tongue cut out for speaking Coptic in front of Islamic government officials. Today, Islam has declared war on the Berber language and culture in North Africa.
The power of jihad is its totality. Jihad goes far beyond the use of violence. It is the purpose of Islam to annihilate all kafir civilizations. This doctrine allows political Islam to be constant over time and continents. The MO of Islam is fixed by the Koran, Sira and Hadith. National Geographic, August 2008, Ancient Iran, pg. 62.
