 Alan A. Stone: Last Battle
The trailer for a re-release promises that “the most explosive film of the ’60s is the most important film of 2004.” The media across the Islamic Arab world have endorsed that promise, praised the film, and celebrated its new life in the United States.
But perhaps the most interesting aspect of the film’s reception in 2004 is that at a time when orientalists and occidentalists distrust any outsider who claims to speak for the group, both sides see the truth in the picture of Arab culture and Islamic identity painted by Pontecorvo—a European and a Jew.
First you learn to kill to defend yourself, then to defend others, and the rest came by itself.” The last sentence is Frantz Fanon’s credo of fl political consciousness transformed through violence, but the message in the film only arises through the manipulation of the white man using violence for his own imperial ends.

Though The Last Battle describes the struggles of armies on a vast stage, the common people are also here.

 The Last Battle? - WELS.net
The parallels are eerily similar to what we are seeing today including the ultimate battle pitched between narnia (Christians) vs. Calormen (Muslims): From the great deception of a false Aslan (look at Christianity today) to the merging of the god Tash with Aslan (Satan/Christ).
How late in those last days ("Are we in the VERY last of the last days?") we cannot tell.
This also reminds us that our real hope in the last days is not in some war on terrorism with the earthly sword of human government (granting that such protecting of the lives of its citizens is a valid function of government).
