“Time Of Violence” Depicts Bulgaria Under The Ottoman Turk Empire

WARNING:  Before you click that PLAY arrow, please read my brief comments.  This movie, about which Andrew Bostom wrote and thereby brought to my attention on May 19, is a graphic depiction of a Bulgarian village forced to convert to Islam by the Ottoman Turk Empire during the late 1600s.  It is violent.  But, then, jihad is violent.  Hellishly violent.  Based upon Anton Donchev’s novel, inspired by eyewitness written accounts of what happened in the village of Elindenya, it is a very disturbing work.  Dr. Bostom tells us that the movie screened at the 1988 Cannes Festival.

“Time of Violence” is four and one-half hours in length.  I have watched the entire production, in segments.  The language is Bulgarian.  There are English subtitles.  I could not stop watching until the end.  The movie grabbed me and held me.  It is a historically accurate depiction of the brutality visited upon non-Muslim peoples throughout the bloody, violent conquests of the three great waves of jihad.

We are currently in the third wave of jihad, ladies and gentlemen.  And our so-called leaders don’t have a clue as to what’s really happening to us.  We’re being Islamized.


About John L. Work

John Lloyd Work has taken the detective thriller genre and woven an occasional political thread throughout his books, morphing what was once considered an arena reserved for pure fiction into believable, terrifying, futuristic, true-to-life “faction”. He traveled the uniformed patrolman’s path, answering brutal domestic violence calls, high speed chases, homicides, suicides, armed robberies, breaking up bar fights, and the accompanying sporadic unpredictable moments of terror - which eventually come to all police officers, sometimes when least expected. He gradually absorbed the hard fact that the greatest danger a cop faces comes in the form of day-to-day encounters with emotionally disturbed, highly intoxicated people. Those experiences can wear a cop down, grinding on his own emotions and psyche. Prolonged exposure to the worst of people and people at their worst can soon make him believe that the world is a sewer. That police officer’s reality is a common thread throughout Work’s crime fiction books. Following his graduation from high school, Work studied music and became a professional performer, conductor and teacher. Life made a sudden, unexpected turn when, one afternoon in 1976, his cousin, who eventually became the Chief of the Ontario, California, Police Department, talked him into riding along during a patrol shift. The musician was hooked into becoming a police officer. After working for two years as a reserve officer in Southern California and in Boulder, Colorado, he joined the Longmont, Colorado Police Department. Work served there for seven years, investigating crimes as a patrolman, detective and patrol sergeant. In 1989 he joined the Adams County, Colorado Sheriff’s Office, where he soon learned that locking a criminal up inside a jail or prison does not put him out of business. As a sheriff’s detective he investigated hundreds of crimes, including eleven contract murder conspiracies which originated “inside the walls”. While serving on the Adams County North Metro Gang Task Force and as a member of the Colorado Security Threat Intelligence Network Group (STING), Work designed a seminar on how a criminal’s mind formulates his victim selection strategy. Over a period of six years he taught that class in sheriff’s academies and colleges throughout Colorado. He saw the world of crime both inside the walls and out on the streets. His final experiences in the criminal law field were with the Colorado State Public Defender’s Office, where for nearly two years he investigated felonies from the defense side of the Courtroom. Twenty-two years of observing human nature at its worst, combined with watching some profound changes in America’s culture and political institutions, provided plenty of material for his first three books. A self-published author, he just finished writing his tenth thriller.

    The knee jerk reaction was Count Vlad Dracul attacking the lead element of the Ottoman Turks. He impales 5000 of this stunned advanced party scaring the crap out of the main force of Ottoman Turks when they pushed forward and ultimately were defeated. Another good read of Islam wiping out Christianity in Northern Africa is…Skeletons on the Sahara by Capt.James Riley.

    Thank you, Captain Clark.
