Below, Brian Kilmeade interviewed by Mark Levin (American lawyer, author, and host of American syndicated radio show “The Mark Levin Show”)
Below, is a 7-minute segment from the 1966 film Khartoum, with British General Gordon played by Charlton Heston opposing the invasion plans of Sudanese Muslim army leader Muhammad Ahmad ibn Abdullah claiming to be the Mahdi (the prophesied redeemer of Islam or “expected” one of Mohammed) and played by Laurence Olivier. The self-proclaimed Mahdi’s plans were to invade Khartoum (Sudan), liberate it from Anglo-Egyptian control, and give the Islamic nation independence from its Egyptian rulers that controlled Sudan (1885).
When you see it, you realize that writers in Hollywood understood this ancient evil perfectly in 1966. So it is more a function of what we have forgotten than what we don’t know — although the film writers did not include the part where, in the end, Gordon is beheaded, and his head stuck on a pole that is paraded in triumph in Khartoum. The entire film is linked here.
