U.S. theaters pull Turkish film that Jews had protested

A Turkish film featuring a venal, bloodstained Jewish doctor has been mysteriously withdrawn from screening in the United States.

In “Valley of the Wolves: Iraq,” American actor Gary Busey portrays a Jewish U.S. Army doctor who cuts out the organs of Iraqis at Abu Ghraib prison and sells them to wealthy clients in New York, London and Tel Aviv.

A blockbuster hit in its native country, the film had been scheduled to open last Friday at two theaters in Los Angeles and one in San Francisco.

However, in early November, “Valley of the Wolves” was quietly dropped from the theaters’ advance schedules.

In an Oct. 19 letter to Turkish Ambassador Nabi Sensoy in Washington, Anti-Defamation League leaders expressed concern at “the incendiary anti-Jewish and anti-American themes and characters in the film” and pointed to previous inquiries about the wide availability of anti-Semitic publications in Turkey

Jews always seek to ally themselves with others when they do something they are ashamed of - in this case outright censorship. But since when have they ever really complained about anything anti-American?? It's all over - especially in Hollywood.
