Audacious. Bold. Courageous. Daring. Indiscreet. Adjectives, that still deeply fail to describe the erudite, 28-year-old Egyptian-American filmmaker with a devil-may-care disposition, Abdullah Hashem. He needs no further introduction, having gained instant popularity as joint collaborator on the sensational and controversial hit-Internet series, The Arrivals, that created a furor in cyberspace almost three years ago.
His explicit online films probe the hidden agendas of greedy corporations, governments and media that use fashion, movies, celebrities, food, drugs and alcohol to control people, the workings of occult-secret societies and often exploring the impact of capitalism and false flag events in the establishment of the New World Order. He is a man who has come out with hard-hitting revelations and truths on religions, Jinns and the likes through his phenomenal online videos. Millions have claimed that his films, a grand exposé and whistle-blower of sorts, flipped their entire perception of present day media, movies, music and politics, if nothing at all. Having faced subsequent bans, censorships and numerous threats, the themes of his films have only gotten stronger. Nevertheless, his dauntless spirit gets him talking about his work, the challenges he faces, future plans, Egypt at the moment and the world in time.
How did your career as an independent filmmaker begin?
I graduated from Indiana University with a BA in Comparative Religious Studies. Ever since I was a child, Allah gifted me with the ability to express my thoughts and ideas through visual demonstrations. Hence my interest in filmmaking from a young age. I was also conscious of the fact that this world was about to go through some very radical changes and I have since childhood felt this urge to discover, express and share the reality of the times we are living in. It’s true that some call me a filmmaker, and I studied the arts of filmmaking but I wouldn’t necessarily call myself one, not in the traditional sense at least. A filmmaker in the minds of most people is someone who seeks to make films for the purpose of entertainment as a career and a means of winning bread. I do not see myself in this manner, as I have no aspirations for world fame or fortune. I don’t seek to win accolades at any film festivals or work on multimillion dollar productions. I am simply using the tool of filmmaking to express my visions to document and reveal the change in consciousness we are all experiencing and the trials and tribulations that lie ahead of us.
Most of your works have a common theme that exposes the hypocrisy of political leaders, elitism and the Hollywood mind-control culture.
Yes, but it also involves and delves into the idea of a New World Order being built. This phrase was first coined, as you probably know, by George H. W. Bush in 1991. It is this New World Order that is mentioned in the prophecies of the most Ancient of Civilizations and in the Hadiths of our prophet Mohammad, peace be upon him. The New World Order is known to us in the Islamic World as the system of the Antichrist/Dajjal. It has also been mentioned in most religious texts such as the Bible and Torah, although not in the same words. The New World Order is built and established using the system of mind control. Hollywood is only one of the many tools they use to mind control us. It’s not their only tool but it is perhaps their most effective. And it isn’t exclusive to just Hollywood. Most news stations use and apply this technology as well.
Your contribution to the sensational YouTube phenomenon, The Arrivals, was widely recognized and appreciated. Your recent work TADS (The Anti-Christ Dajjal series) is now released online under the Hashem Films banner. How has this journey been?
Yes, most people think of The Arrivals when they hear my name but really TADS is so much deeper than The Arrivals. It was the source for The Arrivals.
The Arrivals is just a slice of what TADS has to offer. It has been a very long journey, in every sense.
TADS — The first semester, is over 80-hours long. It promises to change your life and awaken you to a path you never knew existed. Some people express their notes through journals. I have expressed them through TADS. It is an encyclopedia of research into the occult, religious secrets and mysteries as well as a serious look at the times we live in. It reveals the correlations between these times and the ancient prophecies and traditions.
How well was TADS received? What do your followers have to say about it?
TADS had a lower number of viewers than The Arrivals. That is because The Arrivals and my other works such as 13 Masonic Secrets and Age of Appearance are shorter films and designed for crowds who don’t have much time to invest. However, people who watch TADS always come out claiming The Arrivals and my other works in comparison were merely icing on the cake.
We have a community at my website where you see people engaged in active discussions although I wouldn’t call them my followers as I am not starting a new religion, or following, They are my fellow brothers and sisters who share the same outlook as I do on the world.
What kind of harassments and violations have you faced due to the nature of your work?
If you research online, you will find many lawsuits against me. Statements made by factions such as the Islamic Society of North America of which I was a former employee. Lawsuits by the Raelians community, and many others seeking to silence me and destroy my mission. After I moved to Egypt, I learned that the FBI raided the house of my former web admin living in the States and seized all computers and materials relating to my old site http://www.hashemfilms.com
. I was informed that they were questioning her about me and about this sudden surge of anti government/Illuminati videos and the FBI asked if I was a sheikh and questioned my whereabouts. Most of the information and claims against me is false and fabricated. It was an attempt to ruin my character since I was back-slamming many political figures.
What are the challenges you’ve faced as an independent filmmaker?
I think the challenges I face are different than most people due to the nature of the topics discussed in my films. It is not just me, it is anyone who turns against the system. They try to sabotage their credibility with smear campaigns and by destroying their public identity. One could argue that I am doing the same to them, but the only difference is, what they say against me is almost all lies, while what I present about them is true.
Did Disney recently file a lawsuit against you for defamation charges? How feel about this? How have you responded?
I am not sure Disney has filed anything against me. However, I have not been in the United States so I don’t know for sure. Either way I do not believe in their court system, so why should I show up for any representation?
You have now shifted your base from America to Egypt. Was there any particular reason?
Yes, I moved to Egypt because I knew things would be culminating into a doomsday scenario soon for the Middle East and I felt the urge to return to my roots. I wanted to be here during this period of change and I wanted to be as close as I can to Muslims as that is who I am.
You have now ventured into Hashem Records. Is it an independent music label?
Hashem Records is a sub company of Hashemsfilms that is dedicated to producing music that brings about awareness to the Dajjalic World we live in and the agenda of the Zionists. (
How receptive has your work been by the media at large? Or have you felt a deliberate ignorance for perhaps obvious reasons?
It’s understood that I am not going to be promoted like others. But every now and then I am approached by those with journalistic integrity as yourself.
What current films are you working on?
I am in the process of directing TADS (The Anti-Christ Dajjal Series) — The 2nd semester, and I have a few other projects in mind that are in the pre-production stages. I don’t want to give too much away just yet but let’s just say one of them has to do with the revolutions sweeping the Middle East.
How did it feel witnessing the revolution that has created history for the people of Egypt?
I was there from day one, demanding freedom of religion, equality and the ouster of President Mubarak. The crowds were electrifying. I was always inspired by the story of Prophet Moses and the Pharaoh of Egypt. I participated in the uprising along with my brother and friends, throwing rocks and defending the territory of Tahrir Square. Allah protected us and we were not injured in the fighting although at times we were at the very front lines. We saw many others hurt and their heads split open.
Me and my brother were arrested by Egyptian Military soldiers who threatened to shoot us in our head if we did not quietly get in the back of their car. We were blindfolded and our feet and hands were tied and beaten in a van and tortured. We were then taken into an Egyptian Intelligence base where we were made to think they were going to execute us. After deciding that we were in fact not Jewish or American spies, they released us, after 16 hours of questioning and torment. We developed health incompetencies due to the inhumane conditions they exposed us and many other foreigners and fellow Egyptians too. We could hear people crying and screaming. It was very awful.
Are there any future projects you are focusing on?
Yes. I’m looking at producing a series called “The New Middle East.” It focuses on the plans the US and Israel have for the Middle East and how they seek to cause instability in the region and then finally unite the Muslims under a CIA backed Caliph (Sufyani) who will be used as a catalyst in a war against Israel which according to their hopes will cause the destruction of the Arabs and will lead to the event of World War III, in which Israel emerges as a world power. Of course I don’t believe they will achieve this goal for many reasons.
Do you plan on pursuing main stream filmmaking perhaps in the future?
No. I don’t think anyone will want to fund me for commercial films without wanting me to compromise my vision.
We are living in very interesting times, the age of awesome deception. The World is changing. The West is trying to take advantage of these changes in finally building the New World Order. The groundwork has been laid for the Antichrist Dajjal to reign as Messiah of the world and this is not in the least bit a joke.
