Leftist Propaganda From Hollywood May Have Triggered Frankfurt Terror Attack

Liberal director Brian De Palma's outlandishly inflammatory anti-American propaganda film Redacted may have bombed at the box office, but it appears to have accomplished its purpose by directly leading an Islamist to murder Americans:
Arid Uka, who shot and killed two American servicemen at Frankfurt Airport [last] Wednesday, has told German police that he was motivated in part by a video that he saw showing American soldiers "plundering a house and raping a girl" in Afghanistan. According to Germany's deputy Attorney General Rainer Griesbaum, Uka is supposed to have viewed the video on YouTube.
An Islamist propaganda video roughly matching Uka's description is in fact to be found on YouTube. On November 20, 2010, a German-language YouTube user going by the name "24jasmina" uploaded the video under the title "American Soldiers Rape our Sisters! Awake Oh Ummah." …
The video begins with roughly 80 seconds of footage apparently showing American soldiers marauding in a family's home and raping a teenage girl. The footage appears to be filmed with a night vision camera and comes complete with vulgar and incriminating dialogue. At one point during the rape scene, gunfire can be heard off-camera and then a soldier on camera says: "I f****** killed them all."
The same footage can also be seen on YouTube under the English-language title "Footage of Abeer Qassim." The description specifies "rape footage of Abeer Qassim." Unlike the German-language YouTube page, however, the English-language page indicates that the footage comes from the Brian De Palma film Redacted. …
De Palma's 2007 release was largely made to look "as if" it was filmed by an amateur cameraman documenting real events.
If Sarah Palin bears responsibility for the Jared Loughner shootings due to surveyor symbols on a map that Loughner almost certainly never saw, think how much guilt hangs over De Palma. But I doubt he's losing any sleep over it. It's more likely that he's pleased to have struck a blow against America on behalf of its enemies. The film's financier Mark Cuban (leftist owner of the Dallas Mavericks) really got his money's worth.
