Movie Review -- Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West

A couple of nights ago, I sat down and watched a new documentary called Obsession: Radical Islam's War Against the West. I'm still absorbing it, but I would venture to say it is one of the most powerful films I have ever seen, not to mention one of the most disturbing.

Much of the film is comprised of video clips from Middle Eastern media, including clips of news reports, Islamic sermons, political rallies, and terrorist propaganda, with translated English subtitles. [Many of the clips are courtesy of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI)]. The film also features interviews with moderate Muslims, including the daughter of a "martyr" as well as a former PLO terrorist along with various experts on Islam and terrorism such as Daniel Pipes and Steven Emerson.

Some of the images and rhetoric shown in the film are so stunning, it's almost beyond comprehension. The Islamofascist death cult is pure, unadulterated evil. You see toddlers and elementary school children reciting vile anti-Semitic propaganda and expressing a desire to become suicide bombers. What kind of society encourages this? Children are supposed to want to grow up and be doctors and teachers and firemen and astronauts. They are supposed to want to be happy and to better mankind. Yet, how many thousands have been brainwashed in the teachings of death?

One of the quotes that stuck out to me was that of a Hamas radical talking about how they had raised up an "ideological generation" and that their children "loved death as much as their enemies love life". The sick and reprehensible nature of something like that is just bewildering. I believe their indoctrination far exceeds that of the Nazis. In fact, a former Nazi Youth member who was interviewed for the film says as much. The film touches on the eery correlation between Nazi propaganda and radical Islamic propaganda. The two movements also share a history that is not well known in the West. Did you know that the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem met with Hitler and even raised up a Bosnian Muslim division of SS Panzer troops?

We have all seen our flag burn in violent protests depicted on the news and have heard "Death to America" chanted by our enemies. But, the vast majority of Westerners have no idea of the depth of this thing we now face. Sadly, I don't know of an American network that would have the courage to broadcast a documentary like this. I fear where we are headed. We are indeed involved in much wider war than many realize. Will the West wake up before it is too late? God help us.

Sad thing is that they are just teaching what the Koran calls for. So in that sense they are not radicals.

Came to The Politics of CP thru Gates of Vienna. I'm always encouraged when I see more and more bloggers finally getting it.

Yes, Obsession will grab your heart and tear at your soul. It is a MUST SEE film. I've sent the link for online viewing to everyone in my e-list. AND I've placed an order to purchase DVDs to donate to my libraries.

But there is so much more . Being new to this site, this may be redundant, but there are two more online links to videos worth viewing.

Relentless about the Middle East Peace Process is also available.

and this:

Why ? because . ..

Consider that the US Marines and Navy were given birth to respond to America's first exposure to Islamic terrorism (Barbary pirates)in the 1800's (See "Victory in Tripoli", by Joshua E. London)and did not have to deal with islamic terror until that accident of geology changed the global calculus.

Since then, the US did not adequatly respond to the threat during the following blatant attacks:

1979/444 day Iranian hostage crisis;

1983 241 American servicemen killed in barracks bombing in Beirut, Lebanon;

1985 TWA 847 hijacked to Beirut;

1985 Achille Lauro Hijacked;

1988 Pam Am 103 bombed over Lockerbie, Scotland;

1993 Battle of Mogadishu (Black Hawk down)

April 1993, the Iraqi Intelligence Service attempted to assassinate former President Bush via car bomb during a visit to Kuwait

The 1993 World Trade Center Bombing

1995 Oklahoma City Bombing (yeah, Timothy McVeigh isn't a Muslim but don't forget the third terrorist involved . . .see Jayna Davis' site for Iraq link -

1996 Khobar Towers bombing.

1996 TWA 800 goes down over Long Island Sound.

2000 suicide bombing of the USS Cole where seventeen sailors were killed and 39 others were injured in the blast;

September 11th 2001
Twin Towers, Pentagon and Shanksville
