Our media and Hollywood would just love to get their hands on this Turkish bestseller. It's the kind of movie they love to make - America as the villain. It will sweep the awards in Cannes, Hollywood and wherever else movie awards are given out.

The last scene in this enthralling movie I'd imagine as follows. A heap of rubble that once was the White House. A helicopter of the Turkish Armed Forces lands there and two soldiers descend . One holds a huge Turkish flag which he proudly thrust into the rubbles. The other carries a large portrait of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk and sets it near the flag . Both salute and shout "Allah ekber ! ". At this moment another helicopter arrives. It has Saudi Arabia's coat-of arms . An officer gets out with the green Quran lifted reverently in his hands. The Turkish soldiers are clueless at first but then realize what the matter is . They are enruptured and repeat " Allaha bin şükür " (Glory belongs to Allah ! ) .
