“King of the Sands” is a recently-released movie by famous Syrian director Najdat Anzour. Anzour decided to screen the movie in Britain. Although I've only watched few parts of it so far, the circumstances in which the movie was released indicate it is more of a politicized move than a mere flick. While describing the movie, Anzour said: "It presents an explanation for the roots of the concept of terrorism which spread across the world and (it also explains) the Wahabi intellect which led to the creation of violent groups."
The Syrian regime does not carry extremist Sunni Salafist ideas and the same goes for the Shiite militias, like Hezbollah and others, which are killing people in defense of dictatorial regimes. This confirms that terrorism has no religion, no country and no nationality.Badria al-Bishr
Anzour decided to support the Syrian regime, which most global regimes, including Saudi Arabia's, criticized for its brutality, by making a drama movie pictured as facts against the founder of the Saudi state and its leader King Abdulaziz - whom Saudis know as a genius political leader who managed to unite lands of the Arabian Peninsula, where rival tribes lived according to laws of domination and oppression, and who established a state seeking to integrate with the modern times.
