Incredible - I wish I could find a video or DVD
30 September 2001 | by (New Yawk City) – See all my reviews

This was a terrifying, incredibly informative documentary of a battered country and those who rule it. I applaud Ms. Shah's courage, and the courage of those who accompanied her on this tour through Islamic extremism.
