    Subject: 2015 Edition of “Valentino’s Ghost” premiers today (Sunday 16aug15) on Al Jazeera English!

    Dear All,

    Please alert your friends abroad!

    My award-winning film “Valentino’s Ghost,” designated a New York Times Critics’ Pick, premieres today (Sunday 16Aug15) worldwide in 127 countries simultaneously (excluding USA) at 22h00 London time (2pm PST) on Al Jazeera English.

    “Valentino’s Ghost” debuted at the Venice Film Festival, Italy, to a standing ovation, and since then, we’ve updated the film to reflect current events.

    “A crash course in history, politics, and social science, Valentino’s Ghost is both sobering and illuminating, and its execution is thrilling.” – Ernest Hardy, The Village Voice

    Narrated by Mike Farrell, Valentino’s Ghost exposes the way America’s foreign policy agenda in the Middle East influences Hollywood and mainstream media portrayals of Arabs and Muslims. It tracks the transition from the Arab as Romantic Hero, to the Arab today as the embodiment of Evil.

    Valentino’s Ghost features, Gore Vidal, Tony Shalhoub, Robert Fisk, John Mearsheimer, Melani McAlister, Niall Ferguson, Jack G. Shaheen, Anthony Shadid, and other experts, plus acidic stand-up comics Maz Jobrani, Aron Kader, and Ahmed Ahmed.

    The film offers viewers alternative analyses ranging from Rudolph Valentino’s Sheik movies amid Western colonial incursions, to media coverage of the Charlie Hebdo assassins, Israel’s Gaza invasion of 2014, the hit film American Sniper, and the present war on ISIS.

    Alert your friends and family abroad to watch the 48 minute Episode 1. Episode 2 airs at the same time the following Sunday (on August 23th, 2015 at 1 PM Pacific/21:00 hrs London time) via video stream at http://www.aljazeera.com/watch_now/ if outside the USA.

    Looks like the exchange with Lee Hamilton (included in all prior versions of ‘Valentino’s Ghost’) and Shiulie Ghosh’s Al Jazeera English anchor cameo were excluded from the Al Jazeera English version as I also saw the post below by Tom Murphy at following links:

    Here is a link to the original documentary called “What motivated the
    9/11 hijackers? See testimony most didn’t”

    hearings. Plagiarism is the practice of taking someone else’s work or
    ideas and passing them off as one’s own.

    Mr Singh
    Good intentions it seems however since last couple of DECADES news/views and all such media hype has selfishness some kind of WORLDLY gain or power or fear. Many ilks are around however in portraying ARAB or MUSLIM VS AMERICA is your sincerity is there then you will be rewarded very well. Hope you have sincere intention
    One more thing whatever is world and back room are planning since centuries are going to BACKLASH on us sooner or later as NATURE DON’T forgive such mischief.
    Only prayer is LET SANITY PREVAIL otherwise as per Victor HUGO ” History repeat it self and History teach us everything even future”

  • David Evans says:

    For more than a century Jewish-dominated entertainment and news media have portrayed Arabs as villains, first to set the stage for the West’s acceptance of the illicit spawning of Israel on Arab lands, then later, to garner unbridled support for this murderous and expanding state.

    Following is a link to an earlier film regarding this issue may also be of interest as a complimentary adjunct to Michael Singh’s excellent expose’.


    Following is the plan that Jewish media complements with its incessant Zionist propaganda:
