How the Muslim World Sees Us

Well, I just read about something VERY disquieting on the Ap... Check out this review of a new Turkish movie that premiered last night:

In Turkish Movie, Americans Kill Innocents

It has to be pointed out here that the Turks, unlike many Muslim countries, are a SECULAR nation. They don't have clerics running the government... in fact, it was only 9 years ago that the Turkish Military stepped in to force a fundamentalist out of the Prime Minister's seat. They believe the same thing that we believe: that the church and the state should be separate.

That being said, this movie is set to break all box office records in that country... and is going to get wide release across the world.

Tell me again how our war in Iraq is helping our standing in the world?
